hi Could be an ethical dilemma in slaughterhouses? Hypothesis 1: The bioanthropologycal: a) Permaculture evidence that the ancient soils (with no agrochemicals and foreign detrimental microorganisms) had the potential for economic orchards able to provide a balanced vegetarian diet. Were the pythagoreans vegetarians?: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pythagoreanism b) It is consistent with the phylogenetics of edible plants (I.e. findings of botanist Julia F. Morton) and with the dating of the oldest cities where agriculture appeared first. Hypothesis 2: The ethical-aesthetic: a) Is it possible to hold the vision of Kant and Spinoza?: The fact that the human being can have the representation ï¿½Iï¿½ raises him infinitely above all the other beings on earth. By this he is a person....that is, a being altogether different in rank and dignity from things, such as irrational animals, with which one may deal and dispose at one's discretion. (Kant, LA, 7, 127). b) This is not similar to the vision of the 18th century that women's brain was intrinsically unable to intellectual work? c) What percentage of our most important mental attributes animals we eat also possess? Does the fact that some wild cattle are in danger of extinction in their natural habitat eliminates the ethical dilemma of slaughterhouses?
