And all those views had a "solid scientific basis", just like Derp is arguing now.
    Its nothing else than a mechanism of psychological self defense, a way to believe cruelty is ok, because that other one is inferior, at a level of an object. And schock when we discover that its not so.
    P.S. still eating meat.
    Just because a farmer inhaled too much round-up, got really high, and thought he heard his crops speaking to him, doesn't mean they feel pain. Please, explain how an unconscious organism can feel pain though with absence of any sort of pain receptors.

    Oh, and chickens might be the dumbest animal alive.

    I know humans who also do not perceive/sense pain. Is it OK to eat these types of people (eat them raw or cooked)?

    All living entities have essence or spirit, whether one chooses to equate those to a soul or consciousness, that's another thing.

    I'm sure they would still react to being tormented, eaten, etc; unless they're brain dead, and in all fairness, basically dead anyway, same as a plant.

    Bad example. You cannot in any way prove that a plant feels pain, merely that it's there, and for all intents and purposes sort of alive in an atypical sense.

    This topic is intended to be inflammatory and I don't know why ppl feel the need to get involved with it.

    I've had both, the chickens are a lot smarter but that's not saying much.

    There's a difference between a conscious living creature with a vast decision space, and a plant that at most reacts to it's environment.

    Ironically nowdays we cultivate these animals for mass production, as if they were plants. You can rationalize this any way you want, but in this day and age it is unnecessary and you don't have to be vegan to realize this.
