Then there would be no reason to keep all the pigs, cows and chickens alive so are you saying we should eliminate them since they would not serve any purpose only use up all the limited resources that we have.

I'd try it, but I don't want to depend upon human-grown meat, which is more likely to become inaccessible/nonexistent at a moments notice. I'd rather remain a "savage" than lose sight of practical skills and knowledge.

You know, a plethora of plant species actually rely on having their fruits and berries eaten as part of their dispersion. Organisms will come along, chow down on the fruit or berry, consume the plant's seeds in the process, then pass them with stool wherever they happen to go. As for killing animals and consuming their meat, culling by hunting can actually be economically and ecologically necessary. It's not an act of savagery or cruelty to cull the population of species which pose threats to agricultural production or are a threat to public health by carrying diseases or parasites. If such organisms are of concern for being rare they might be relocated instead of killed, but when they're abundant it's easier just to kill and (if it's safe to do so) eat them.

I'm not a big fan of all those over processed foods. I'd rather eat a farm bred animal. I'm okay with having a little farm bred meat than a lot of lab grown stuff. I don't need to eat meat every day so I don't. I also am prepared to eat offal like liver. I believe in using the whole animal when it's been slaughtered. Since life was taken it should not be wasted.

Really I couldn't care how it's made, just as long as it tastes as good as regular beef or pork.

I don't really know where wild pizza live, so I'm dependent on the stores and markets.

But on topic: I'd probably go to the same place I always go to get my meat. If the stores decide to sell lab-grown meat, then I will eat it. I'm not really picky like that. But I like to fish and hunt, and that won't change just because I can get all the food I need at the store.

Also 100% true. Even vegetables can taste best when reacting to stressors during their life. Peppers produce more of the chemicals that result in their "spiciness" when exposed to drought. Carrots get sweeter when exposed to frost. Herbs create their essential oils to ward off pests. Wild caught fish and game birds taste 1000 ties better because they had exposure to a variety of different foods and stresses over farm raised. (even eggs are yellower and more flavorful when raised the hens are raised on a small farm.


And besides, there's nothing like feasting on the corpse of your enemies and drinking their blood.

Vegans be damned! if it lives, and isn't microbial, chances are it feels pain and reacts to stress. I saw this before and it's primarily a vegan funded effor to "reform" us "carnists" so we can have vegan friendly meat. Their big deal is that they don't want to impinge upon any animals that have a "central nervous system" as that is their sort of cut off point before their stance becomes a bit ridiculous. (I point to Jainism and tell them they aren't trying hard enough, and they usually say Jainists are crazy, but never understand that we feel they're just as insane for similar reasons).

Anyway, digressing. I just don't think lab grown meat is natural, and I highly doubt it will taste good, and, quite frankly, I think it'll still make a lot of people sick because of its artificial creation.

It's not necessary in this day and age unless you need to in order to survive, live in the wilderness or are too poor, then its justified.

Deer in particular. In the state of NJ there's problems with their not actually being enough hunting happening as less and less people are willing to do it. The hunters cause major headaches with their paths into hunting grounds and their blinds which they never seem to take down, but I've seen the numbers handed out by the local ecological departments (I have a friend that'son the local environmental commission and am friendly with our mayor). back in like the 60's or 70's, the deer population was decimated and on the brink of nonexistence in our state. There was a 10 year ban on hunting and the populations rose to the point where they destroyed local wildlife habitats and the understory of local forests. In the 80's I believe they reinstated hunting and since then the populations have been, for the most part, kept in check at levels that still preserve THE REST of the local flora and fauna.

but, what about the fat? fat flavors the meat, will that artificial meat have fat that sizzles on the frying pan? I don't know, I'm just skeptical about this artificial meat
