    I need vegetation that tastes like fish, chicken and beef and has the same nutritional value, so that animals don't have to die. My carnivorous appetite causes me a great deal of cognitive dissonance. I'm like a vampire with a conscience.

    Well, there's always lab-grown meat. But that has its own moral quandaries.

    Lab-grown meat, you say? I must look into this further. What sort of moral quandaries does it pose?

    Here's a small intro: Ethics of creating meat in a laboratory - Telegraph

    Margaret Atwood wrote a trilogy of post-apocalyptic novels that addresses this particular moral issue, among others. I haven't read them yet but I've heard they're great.

    Interesting read. It certainly seems more ethical than systematically killing animals. It sounds like it's a long ways away from being sold on the market though. Even at that, I'm sure people would want to know if there are any long-term negative consequences from consuming in vitro meat before making it a consistent part of their diet. Still, it's a fascinating development. I'm looking forward to one day eating steak that doesn't require a cow to get it's head chopped off.

    I wouldn't be surprised if any such product, however ethical, ends up being as vilified as "pink slime". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pink_slime

    Never mind being badmouthed as "processed food".

    I'm of the opinion that for some people, if you don't get on your hands and knees and eat your lawn for dinner, you're harming nature ... wait, you have a lawn? Your lawn is despoiling nature!
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.
