I am a strange one. I love animals. I love trees and flowers. I love fish and reptiles. Basically I believe that ALL life is precious – even bugs. But I do like to eat meat. So am I a hypocrite?
Ok so there’s a spider in my house or a beatle, I will actually try to get it outside before I go straight for the killing of it. I tell my kids all the time not to kill things just because they can. I don’t even like to pick flowers because you are essentially killing them. I turn my head when animals get killed in movies or shows. It makes me sadder than the people most of the time. Nice person that I am.
But….. I have been and would go hunting again. I have killed animals out of necessity or food. I will eat pretty much any kind of meat you put in front of me. Seafood- I’m all over it! I helped my husband “deal” with the meat after a kill. And knowing where it comes from, I eat meat everyday.
So what is with me??? How can I be so two sided? How can I make such a strange separation ? Well one answer is that I do believe in balance in nature and survival of the fitest. I think we are meant to eat meat. Our bodies are designed for it. I think that the development of our minds has made the duality of this hard to manage. I puzzle myself on this subject. How can I, right now be pining over a poor little starving bear in the neighbourhood, while eating my Jamacian Beef patty? I am a strange one!
