    Well, that's interesting. Therefore: No matter if you eat meat or vegetables, you're surely killing something. Makes sense.

    I bet vegans will argue that it's fine since the vegetables don't have a central nervous system, at least the ones that don't eat meat for moral reasons.

    Shit man at least animals can try and fight back when you kill them, plants just have to say bye to all their friends as you rip them from the ground :smith:

    Vegetarians can't be so self-righteous now, can they?

    HEAR THE LETTUICE SCREAM, YOU MURDERERS. HOW DOES IT FEEL TO SLAUGHTER THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT CARROTS???
    You say that as if vegetarians are the only people that have vegetables with whatever they're eating.

    So now every time I mow now, I will be thinking of plants and flowers screaming in pure terror before I rip them to shreds, thanks.
    It's interesting that you say that because the same researchers carried out another experiment similar to your statement. They placed a hypersensitive microphone on a custom built silent lawnmower, the sounds were astonishing:

    It's not like humans have been eating meat gained through hunting for the last two hundred thousand years or so

    Edited:

    Also, I wonder if it actually makes a difference if you speak to plants

    Maybe its connected somehow.

    All they did was play different music to plants. Plants responded better to classical music opposed to newer rock music.

    They warn one another of approaching herbivores? Isn't that a little pointless?

    "Oh my god! Guys! There's a fucking herbivore coming! What do we do?!"

    "Uh, I guess we just sit here and get eaten."

    They can release chemicals to try and drive away anything that tries to eat them, probably releasing the chemicals upon death to make the plant unappestising thus the herbivore moves on at most of the plants survive. One or two die so the rest can survive.

    Bam. Hit the nail on the head. This works in the same way as microbial molecules eliciting immune system response against invading pathogens mediated by signal transduction processes. There is no thought process, feeling or like any of them accusations made in this thread. It occurs when an extracellular signaling molecule activates a cell surface receptor. In then changes intracellular molecules creating a response.

    When are scientist going to stop doing this? Aren't you a scientist because you're interested in finding out the unknown..?
    "Damn scientific community. Dismissing my claims? I am the new Galileo, goddamnit! You'll see. Look at all this (unsufficient) evidence!!! They will learn. I will be proven right!!!"

    There have been a lot of scientific prophets these last few centuries. We won't change our entire views on the world by anyone that comes along, saying such claims. No matter if they are proven right eventually.

    Remember: "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence."

    I wonder if this means that vegan-ism will stop, or if vegans will just starve.
    When plants photosynthesize, they make air. Air is a product of plants.

    checkmate, vegans.

    If people are so obsessed with not eating things that have the potential to do anything other than continued existence, we could just gather some carbon, oxygen and a few other atoms and make them some glucose and amino acids so we can stop hearing them bitch.

    Yeah the basic concept of eating is using the life energy of another living thing, and absorbing it.

    There is no way to eat without killing or maiming living things.
    I am no longer going to say I am hungry and need to eat, instead it will be "I require life energy, must absorb more life energy!"

    Well, plants are alive after all, and life walks hand in hand with intelligence; intelligence being super-variable between different kinds of life, with the tiniest sparks and the largest sapiences, but nonetheless there's usually some kind of intelligence in a life form, even if it's merely to transmit messages of danger.

    Still, it's not like plants have senses as advanced and sophisticated as animal, right? I mean, they probably don't even have culture outside of "watch out enemies everywhere".

    Regardless, whatever we do, we have to consume in order to survive and grow; it's one of the many natures of life.

    Think of plants as computer software. They are automated machines that has no intelligence but are programmed to react to certain situation. The software detects a hardware error, it will sends out an error notice. Much like the plants

    Yeah and because of that, we want to do something that makes the world a more begnin thing. To make the collective of consciousnesses that exist on it less seceptible to suffering. It's obvious that you would first pay attention to the human population but theres so many other living things on this planet that have well developed capacities to feel and that's part of where this does get also complicated. We have such an arrogance about what intelligence has given us. Intelligence gives us complexity in our emotions but it does not make our emotions intense per say its not a proven fact our life experience is not necessarily any more conciously intense or real because we have it complicated. When you look at that complexity, we're not really using it in a very sophisticated manner. The emotional equations that make us capable of giving a damn are pretty messed up.
    The're pretty personal and pretty cultural, pretty dependent on conditioning and circumstances and they really don't have much intellectual integrity.

    People have had this perspective they grown up in cultures that have accepted their blight on animal life and certainly accepted nature as just a fact of life and something they can't control. It's always been a philosophical easy way out. You can always change the equation or make the equation attractive by just pointing to nature. I mean nature is just as cruel and nasty as it can get so it's really easy to make excuses because there is someone behaving worse. And so for all our self praise for our highly developed intelligence, it becomes most apparent in these subjects where it is most necessary. Which is an irony.
