>A well marinated piece of Quorn or Seitan has nearly the same consistency and taste as meat.
No. I look indian vegetarian cuisine, it tastes great, but it's not meat. Ripping muscle of a dead animal with your teeth feels different than chewing vegetables. And tastes fuckdifferent, especially when you don't drown it all in thick sauces - meet itself has a plethora of distinct flavors.
>Besides, your argument is ridiculous.
Oh, you've noticed?
>Watching TV and using PCs isn't responsible for torture and killing animals.
Yes it is, unless TVs and PCs simply appear from nowhere, and aren't pieces of machinery that require industry. Fun fact - you've been to the movies lately? Kodak supplies most of studios with equipment and reels, and they have their own sheep farm. Why? To harvest sheep eyes, because the fluid within them is ideal for high grade photography and filming materials.
>Not directly and intentionally, anyway.
What kind of an argument is that?
>Meat does far more damage than any of those things you mentioned, and is comparatively a fairly minor thing to give up.
Wait, meat does more damage than clearing land for housing and the entire industry producing goods for houses? More than mining, metalworking and factories required for making cars for personal use? Mines alone devastate the land to unspeakable degrees, bringing heavy metals and refuse to the surface. The refining processes poison land and rivers so that everything in the area dies if there's a breech in protocols.
>Giving up PCs means giving up easy world wide communications, advanced engineering, everything that makes our advanced society. Whereas meat is just a taste.
Oh, i'm not talking about a worldwide ban of computers. Mathematicians, physicists and engineers should use computers, they find them very useful. YOU don't. You're using a PC because you like it, it's your whimsy.
