“The only thing throwing the human eating of animals into doubt is the evolving of our mental thinking”
is the only reason why we are not being cannibals as well. If you are
going to use your justification you have to disregard that there is an
objective moral and you have to disregard what we intuitively know, that
it is morally wrong to inflict unnecessary suffering and death upon
human animals as well as non-human animals.
To state it again:
all agree that “unnecessary” animal suffering and death are morally
wrong. If that means anything at all, it must mean that we cannot
justify animal suffering and death by reasons of pleasure or
convenience. But what is our best justification for imposing suffering
and death on the 56 billion animals (excluding fish) we eat annually?
So the only justification we have is that which we agree cannot suffice. This is moral schizophrenia.
you are not a vegan, you are participating directly in animal
exploitation. Being a vegan is easy, better for your health, and the
most powerful way that you, as an individual, can say “no” to animal

point I'm trying to make is that the 'creator of the world' has
designed it in a way that suffering is caused in order for beings to
feed. Spiders eat flies, birds eat worms, cats eat birds and fish, wild cats eats other big animals etc etc etc and is a way of life.
