Why the 'plants are alive' arguments against vegans are weak ones
An animal has mind aka soul. In the soul of an animal it can experience emotions such as:

Fear
Pleasure
Happiness
Sadness

Any pet owner will be able to confirm this or just google cats or dogs being skinned alive to see the true face of terror.

A plant on the other hand, although alive in the sense of it being an organism, it has no mind or soul in which emotions or spirits are experienced. The plant is one step up from a rock. which is also a living entity but no one throws rocks in the faces of the vegan argument.

Animals are really are little cousins. The link between the plant and us. It is our duty to protect them, not consume them as the other animal does. This is what makes us human. If you consume animals, you are thus an animal.

Thank you for reading.

Every living thing has built in reward mechanisms to encourage behaviors beneficial to itself.

Because plants don't emote through Fear, Pleasure, Happiness or Sadness does not mean that they aren't rewarded in ways that we cannot understand.

Surely you've seen the studies that prove plants feel pain when harmed.

Ok interesting. I'm not surprised though. I think we should be able to sustain ourselves on wisdom and intelligence and divine godliness. This is how we return back to our spiritual homes. Flesh keeps us locked firmly on terra firma aka hell.

Re: Why the 'plants are alive' arguments against vegans are weak ones
how can you make that determination using only human perception? different communication mechanisms only speak for the complexity of language in nature.


on an evolutionary scale, we're really only just beginning to classify how non-pathogenic bacterial microflora in and on our bodies effect our well-being. plants have been at that selection process through root nodule interactions and foliar absorption for quite a great deal of time.

as a side, opisthokont are more apt as cousins linking the animal kingdom to plants.

Is it a lack of protein that causes you to say stupid things? Since when is a "mind" the same thing as a "soul"? You freaks try so hard to keep your dopey religion alive.....

Lacking protein? So where do you think the gorilla gets his protein from to build his lean muscle mass? The same place we vegans do, live plants.

They say Trees take in carbon dioxide and convert it to oxygen. So I must thank the trees. I might not hug them,but I will smoke some and sit under one to enjoy the peace they bring. But you know sometimes you got to remove a tree,because it is just tearing up the foundation.

I like Brussels sprouts and Broccoli

they are weak because vegans need them to be to continue to believe they are not killers, as every other created thing upon the Earth is.

Articles about photosynthesis in the popular press or online often make me cringe.

Why?

Because sometimes they lead people to think that the oxygen (O2) produced by photosynthesis is derived from carbon dioxide (CO2).

Some even further compound their mistake by stating that plants actually convert CO2 into O2 at night!

Ack!

This is simply NOT true!!

Please allow me to explain…

The Oxygen You Breathe Comes from Water

Yes, that’s correct, water… H2O






They don't make people like these anymore and if they do we surely need to now everywhere.
