I disagree. Lab-grown steaks would never be argued about on these forums.

Last night I dreamed that Descan got into a really long argument on Bay12 about lab-grown steaks.

I'm curious, does such a dream involve imagining you're reading the forums or puppet versions of peoples avatars?
It's just the forums on Darkling, and Descan still used his vibrating avatar.

I'm not sure what sort of arguments you could even level against lab-grown steaks. I can only think of arguing that the government in spending money on a useless project rather than curing cancer, but that argument is easy to defeat by having the research be done by private companies...

Lab grown steaks are the future. You can be a vegan AND eat hamburgers.

I wonder how religions will react to it though, if it ever becomes mainstream. Will Hindus be allowed to eat lab grown beef? Artificial bacon for the muslims and jews?

Probably not. The religious restriction do not refer to bodyparts but species. Lab grown steaks will not be of any particular bodypart, but they will geneticaly be of a certain species.

As for vegans, it depends whether they refuse to eat animal products to not hurt animals (Even though milking does not hurt them.), or just because they do not like the animal products.

Not so sure. The religious restriction of Hindu, yeah, you could be right. But Muslims don't not eat pork because it is of the species pig, they don't eat pork because the animal it comes from eats, and/or rolls around in it's own feces. It's simple. Any animal that eats it's own shit or rolls in it is 'halouf'. Lab grown bacon doesn't eat it's own shit, so it might actually be okay.

Now. lets be honest about one thing here: Yoink kind of has a point. One that I dont agree with, but its internay consistent. Milk industry and meat industry are linked because cows need regular pregnancies to keep making milk.  This doesnt mean that we shouldn't drink milk or est meat, but doesnt make it less real

If y'all aren't aware of how the dairy industry works that is perfectly understandable, as I said in my previous post I was similarly unaware myself until not so long ago - I thought veganism was kinda silly, that for a cow to be a milker was probably no worse than a dreary desk job by human standards. As far as I was aware, milk was to cows as eggs are to chickens - the stuff's got to come out anyway, so why shouldn't a  human consume and enjoy it?

Turns out that is not the case at all. The truth of the matter is rather distasteful and I shan't go into details here (anyone who cares enough to be interested could surely find such facts with ease using the search engine of their choosing), but suffice to say if I hadn't quit my high school's agriculture classes at the earliest opportunity - before we were initiated into the dark arts of the dairy department - I imagine I would have jumped straight to veganism long before I even stopped eating meat in this timeline. :P


In other WTF news, last night I slept at a friend's place and one of the cats there chose to sleep on my legs. I had a series of very intense, dramatic dreams... this tends to happen whenever cats sleep next to me. It is very strange. Unfortunately I remembered even less of the dream(s) in question this time, thoug.
