I have a bro-in-law who contends that you only need to look at a crurteae’s teeth to tell what it was made to eat.To put it in layman’s terms, sharp teeth are for ripping, tearing, and cutting while flatter teeth are meant to grind.While one can rip, tear, and cut vegetation, it generally has to be ground before digestion. Meat on the other hand needs much less grinding and much more tearing, ripping, etc.Look at a cow’s teeth and you will find that they are all generally flat topped and therefore useful for grinding up grass.Look at a cat’s teeth and you will discover that they are generally all very sharp. This is useful for tearing meat.Human teeth are of both varieties. A human generally has 10 teeth made for eating meat and 8-12 teeth made to grind vegetation. So if you’re missing the owner’s manual for these incredible bodies we live in then maybe the form can define the function for you. We’re meant to eat meat and vegetation.Two side notes:1. When my mother was young she decided that she was going to be a vegetarian. She was of the faddish persuasion that Mr. Byrd mentions. About 3 weeks into this experiment her hair started to fall out. Realization: There are protiens in meat that your body needs. (Yes I know you can get them from other sources too, but most people do not. So if you’re going to try a vegetarian lifestyle do some research first.)2. I have a cousin who had a realization a number of years ago that when she ate meat she didn’t feel well. She stopped eating it altogether. Now she won’t even touch it now because she doesn’t feel well when she does. I think for her that’s great. She does not, however feel a moral imperative to cause others to be vegetarians as well. In similar fashion, I feel no compulsion to push anyone else into being an omnivore. I say eat what you like and keeps you healthy.Oh, and have a nice day!

Killian – take a class (or read a book) on philosophy. There’s a difference between what you’re able to do, and what you ought to do. Men have the urge to nail every woman that walks by. Evolution and biology certainly made him want to do it, and able to do it. But cheating on his wife, and rape, are not ethical behaviors to engage in, wouldn’t you agree? So certainly what someone decrees humans were “made to eat” by looking at their teeth would also decree that human men were “made to rape” by looking at their biology and impulses. An extreme example to be sure, but you get my point.
Millennia of vegetarian lifestyles among certain groups proves that eating meat isn’t essential to survival. So that rationalization is also disproved quite easily. The fact is, if you find eating animals to be unethical, then you can and should stop. If not, go about your business as usual. End of lecture
