"PETP does not support the killing of animals for fun or sport. But it does oppose the cribbing and wastage of the time of our criminal courts that animal rights activists undertake when animals are removed in pubilc interest or they are used for food.
PETP does not oppose the eating of plants. It only opposes the "DON'T EAT AN ANIMAL EAT A PLANT INSTEAD" attitude. It believes that even plants are living beings. And though they are inanimate they deserve the same treatment that is sought for animals. " SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST" is rule of nature. Nature has created devices to maintain it's harmony. one of these is the food chain.
LET US NOT DISTURB NATURE'S HARMONY!" (Quoted directly from the website)
I just don't understand how people can rant and rave about killing a living breathing animal but then have no problem killing a living breathing plant for food. Then sit there and say well it is a renewable resource and it doesn't feel. How to we really know just because it doesn't feel things the way we do doesn't mean it doesn't feel. I'm not saying that they think or even feel who knows I don't, I don't pretend to totally understand nature but I am saying that science doesn't totally understand plants because they compare everything to humans so they will always say somthing doesn't feel as long as they can't find a nervous system similar to our own.
I am not saying stop eating plants and kill only animals to say that would be just as bad as the people that say the reverse. As we are apart of nature, no matter how much we don't think we are, we should try to help maintain the Harmony of the circle of life!!!
HELLO! NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU DON'T WANT TO FACE IT HUMANS ARE ANIMALS AND A PART OF THE HARMONY OF NATURE!!!!
