    It's for the protein and the energy that protein gives. I know I feel bad for eating chicken or lamb but it's the only way I can get protein to fuel my body. But if this makes you feel better - I only eat chicken, lamb and turkey for meat consumption, and nothing else - not even fish. So I relieve myself of excess ethical burden.

    because our bodies require us to consume living cells of others to survive

    1) Because they taste nice.

    5. For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

    James Chapter 3

    7. For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:

    1. And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

    2. And t

    he fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth [upon] the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.

    3. Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.

    4. But flesh with the life thereof, [which is] the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.

    Because people don't like to deviate from ingrained habits and prefer not to think about certain harsh truths.  My partner, I and our son are all veggie and I'm vegan.  We have not eaten animals this century and our son never has.

    Why wouldn't they be? Animals are the chief source of protein that is available to us.
