Im just wondering, this baffles me all the time....why is it that meat smells good, can taste good, but the act of producing it is terryfing and grotesque? Im just wondering how many people would eat meat if they had to kill and process every animal they ate? There seems to be a sort of contradiction in the human nervous system...we are naturally empathetic, yet our senses would lead us to commit acts that are highly stressful and gut wrenching. I'm not concerned with moral perspectives here, but rather just wondering how people think this contradiction came about? I'm thinking possibly humans started eating meat via scavenging but not through direct killing, possibly in a food (fruit) scarce environment? any thoughts?
