Default Five Reasons to Be a Vegetarian, and Ten Arguments Against Eating Meat

*No* animals benefit by existing


Many appear to Goo, so what do you want people to think prevents them
from
benefitting as they appear to, and how do you want people to think it
prevents
them?


Logic, here's one argument:

Two pigs exist, one has a good life provided by the farmer, Salatin, the
other has a life full of pain, suffering and deprivation provided by Tyson.

One pig benefits, the other suffers and is harmed, yet both exist in equal
measure.

Therefore existence itself is clearly not the source of benefit.
