Will we one day look down upon ourselves for eating meat?
Do you think there will be a day in the far future when those alive will look at us a primitive or even look down upon us from the past for eating meat?
The reason i bring this up is because i read an article a few months ago saying that it could be entirely possible that one day we (as a whole) will stop consuming animal products, could it happen? Whats your opinion?
They wont know what theyre missing.
To be honest, yes. I really think it’s the next ‘ism’ we’ll move onto once all the disparities within our own species disappear. But I think we’re quite a long way off.
Maybe we’ll look down on the way we produce the majority of the meat we consume, but meat-eating is such a natural part of the human existence and goes as far back as we can see, so i can’t see it ever dying out completely.

@mitchel9997, No, sir. No we will not.
@mitchel9997, I think about this kind of stuff a lot. Or ponder it I should say. I think we will.
Sometimes it feels weird knowing there’s a piece of dead body of an animal on my plate. “As opposed to alive meat?” LoL i kno rite -_-
@mitchel9997, I think no, simply because we are naturally meat-eating creatures. The method by which we get our meat will no doubt be considered barbaric, but not the very act of eating meat.
I hope so!
I don’t think so. If anything, our descendants will look down upon the way we eat meat–mainly, the meat industry, especially in the U.S. (the only meat industry I know anything about).
@mitchel9997, Beautiful question,Simple, yet thought provoking.
That eating meat is bad is a concept, all forms of judgementality are concepts, I think we will surpass the importance of the conceptual identity and exist in a state of pure natural value. In which case we would not pass judgement on each other then or on humans of the past.
I think it’ll happen someday, just not in the way we think. We’d probably eliminate our metabolism altogether and recreate an android-type power source for our bodies. Little iron men running around with cores in our chest or something. But right now our source of nutrition and energy comes from food, so as long as that stays the same I think we’ll have people eating whatever they want/can. Idk what’s changing with me, but I never have an appetite for food anymore, much less meat. I chew on it for a few seconds and the lumpy mass in my mouth just feels wrong. Not in an omg, save the animals way; but I honestly can’t convince my mouth to enjoy eating anymore. Looking to get plugged in..
if we, as a whole in the future, look down upon our past selves, then we, as a whole, will not yet be enlightened.
