Dan, so wrong! Animals are our equals and in many cases are superior to us. You have been well indoctrinated by the System. The 'experts' have done their job well in your case!I am fairly certain that about half of the group that has gone vegetarian or vegan
Has done so in an effort to improve their health.
The other half does it so they can have a false sense of superiority over the majority who eats as an omnivore.
Most health conscious people eat whatever they thrive on better or attempt to do so.
Animals should be treated humanely, but not as humans They exist for our use as pets, beasts of burdon, or food.
We, as a species are the monsters. The evidence is plain to see. The destruction of the planet is bringing life to a close here, and we are guilty; and we think of ourselves as intelligent!
So intelligent that we may bring an end to ALL LIFE on planet Earth.
