Happy inspired. When the vastly superior Aliens come to eat us, will you change your opinion on Meat or Murder? Does superior intellect diminish a living things rights?
I question their taste in food. Have you seen me?
Good question. I see no problem wth eating animals. If I'm dead and they eat me then certain predictions about what I would become will be true. Just don't want to be alive when they start and they better pick up after themselves. Watch your step.
It not intelligence but consciousness.
Is it OK to kill an animal to eat it? Yes. Is it OK to kill and eat you if you are nothing more than a dumb animal to a superior being? Must be. I'm fine with that. My plan is to be cute enough to be kept as a pet though.
They may eat your smart ass as a treat!
Is it ok to eat other humans?
Not to me, because none of us is superior to any other in this context, and the main reason, because of the health concerns. I don't want the human equivalent of mad cow. Recycled and processed, like Soylent Green, I guess so.
My position is that it is ok to consume animals as long as they have needn't treated ethically since they are incapable of choice. I'd be ok with the aliens doing it as long as they gave individuals a choice.
A vastly superior alien species would probably capable of creating human meat efficiently without killing anyone.
Been not needn't
At that point it would be self defense.
I mean, we probably can't reason with them, so if we want to survive we have to kill them no matter how smart they are.
Oh I misunderstood the question, I get it now.
