This is all kinds of weird, I was just about to make a topic exactly like this but was trying to figure out which forum to post it in..IOwnTheSpire said:I've heard about scientists being able to create artificial meat, or in vitro meat, and it got me wondering what would happen if this became a mainsteam practice. Do you think we would have an ethical obligation to stop eating real meat (as in stop killing animals)? Would vegetarians/vegans be willing to eat artificial meat? What do you guys think?
If we're able to create the meat as scientists pose it to be possible now it will when mass produced taste the same like our current meat as in all essence aside from the animal it is supposed to be attached to it actually is real meat.
They claim to have found a way to safely and quite harmlessly harvest the cells needed for this "beef-garden" process and with that I believe all moral questions sort of dissapear.
You'd be treating world hunger and animal cruelty in one fell swoop.
Humans donate blood and organs
So why shouldn't animals be allowed to donate blood to save their own lives?
It all sounds pretty sensible to me.
