      I couldn't finish the article. That has been the most ridiculous thing I have read in a very long time. I thought he was joking until he started quoting the bible "and the lion will eat straw with the ox." Wow, he needs to get outside more often.

          "Here, then, is where matters stand thus far. It would be good to prevent the vast suffering and countless violent deaths caused by predation. There is therefore one reason to think that it would be instrumentally good if predatory animal species were to become extinct and be replaced by new herbivorous species, provided that this could occur without ecological upheaval involving more harm than would be prevented by the end of predation. The claim that existing animal species are sacred or irreplaceable is subverted by the moral irrelevance of the criteria for individuating animal species. I am therefore inclined to embrace the heretical conclusion that we have reason to desire the extinction of all carnivorous species, and I await the usual fate of heretics when this article is opened to comment."

          And people listen to this swill? He needs to grow up. We live, we eat, we die, and in turn we are eaten. It is called the cycle of life, and it is the WAY.THINGS.ARE. Either accept LIFE and move on, or fight about it in your own philosophical hole in your head. But we needn't pay attention to the lunacy.

            That article sounded like drivel written by a 13 year old with visions of rainbow colored ponies and lions laying next to lambs.

              That guy's article is so mind-blowingly, breathtakingly, jaw-droppingly stupid that I don't even know what to say in response to it. I can't fathom a mind that would hold such a position.

                Does this guy have no clue what happens environmentally when herbivorous species populations can grow unchecked? Deer overpopulation is a major problem in areas where natural predators have been removed from the food chain (particularly where wolves have been hunted to localized extinction). The deer eat everything in sight, destroy the vegetation in their habitat, and then starve to death. Yeah, let's do that to our entire planet. Brilliant.

                  THIRITEEN YEAR OLD....?! Most 13 year olds I know would see it as BS!!

                  Methnks this Jeff wossisname is a fully paid up member of 40azc (advance the letters one and you'll get what I mean). Or maybe that's DR's real name (oh, wait, he's an Aussie, isn't he...?)

                    Look what happens in India when bamboo forests flower every 48 years. The rat population explodes and moves on to eating all the crops. The result is famine. Any environmental variable that brings about huge expansions of rodent populations is a grave danger to humanity. That idiot's new age hippy religion, imposed globally, could literally wipe out our own species!

                      I guess this same author did a treatise on "Killing in War." Typical ridiculous drivel - war bad, killing bad, soldier bad.

                      Funny. I'm willing to bet this MFer has never been shot at. Sort of changes your philosophy real quick.

                        The FatHead piece made a lot of sense. Do we need a license to bag our vegetarians? Is the choice of hunting tool restricted?

                        Perhaps, for health reasons, it would be better to collect them into stock yards and finish them off with MEAT and wash away all the poisons due to grain consumption. You know, get the omegas right again before the harvest.

                        Where can I get a cookbook?

                          Whole-heartedly concur. Let me know when you find that cookbook. I'm practicing leading shots.

                            Simply another case of a human being thinking he is separate and distinct from nature.

                              Owly the Owl makes a good point.

                              Does this guy know how wild animals die if they aren't eaten? Starvation, injury and disease. I would rather be ripped apart.
