“The question has come up about halal meats. What is it and is it humane? The word halal means food that is permissible according to Islam law. Like kosher meat in which Jews eat, Muslims eat halal meat only. According to Muslims, this way of killing an animal is supposed to be respectful and gives thanks back to them. But one can’t help but ask how? How is killing an animal showing it respect?”
Read about kosher meats in eating animals. It talks about a scadal where the animals for “kosher” meats where being treated horrificly (however most of the Islamic community had no idea and were shocked and outraged at this). The point is, just because it is claimed kosher does not mean the living conditions are that much better.
Putting all this aside, I don’t simply not eat meat b/c of the abuse is the industry but b/c meat is unnecesary, and unneccesary killing is murder.
There is no humane way for a human to unnecessarily kill and eat another being; there are only varying degrees of inhumane.
If I were to kill a cow with a knife, slowly and painfully over a period of several hours, that would be very inhumane.
If I were to use a device to completely vaporize the cow’s head instantaneously while she happily grazes in a field (without her even being aware of my presence) that would be much less inhumane.
However, both methods are still inhumane.
There is no humane way for a human to unnecessarily kill and eat another being, regardless of the dictations of imaginary gods.
If you’re having trouble comprehending this because of your upbringing, perhaps try asking yourself if there is a humane way that I could kill and eat you, or one of your loved ones?
Is there a humane way that I could kill and eat your mother, father, sister or brother?
Personally, I don’t believe a supreme being should spiritually tell us what is right or wrong or what to do, to me that is only as excuse to act out of dis-compassion. But with that being said, “Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?” – Epicurus
Not hear to argue, just thought I;d give my perspective, as well!
