The PETA-philes are at it again.

Nice movie, just to bad it was made in vain.
I want food, not "family farms" producing 10 eggs a year.

Food is murder, man.

The video is stupid...and a lot of people PETA-bash because of thier publicity stunts, extreme ideology - but I personally feel a lot of these issues are serious. Cruelty aside, Factory Farms breed contagion and everything else. Family owned farms in crisis in the Midwest because of corporate agriculture.

Im not going to get into it...I thought there was a general concensus here against off-topic political threads?

Whatever your position fear not. Soon enough they'll be able to synthesize your food down to the molecules and not one living plant or animal will ever have been involved, yet the result will be a down to the atoms and molecules perfect copy as if it had.

Of course, they'll be able to do the same thing with gas, oil, etc. so money will have undergone some changes by that point.

I can hardly wait for the economics of the future.

In the meantime, Wilson Leather and McDonald's are merely a logical chain of existance.

Actually, we already can.

Hasn't helped rising gas prices, though...

Actually, in my opinion, PETA isn't politics. PETA are a bunch of screaming nutbags who want to force the world into thinking the same screwed up way they do, and act like obnoxious idiots in the process which causes the world at large to be offended, which results in them being so marginalized, and thus will never achieve their goals because of their bizarre behavior and stubborn refusal to adapt.

Gee, does this sound like any other animal-oriented group you know of?

Sounds pretty awesome, so you're saying that they're going to be able to say make a steak without harming a single cow and have it esentually be a steak right? But are we talking 5 years down the road? 10 years? 25 years? 50 years?

But it they can do this with food, what's to stop it being done with precious metals for example?

Those are opinions that deserve to be engraved in stone.

Agreed on all points.

Yes. And like many religions.

Hm... should only be a matter of time before someone founds The Church of Furry, complete with creation mythology la Scientology - only with furries instead of titans or whatever it was Hubbard thought up.

I think several small sects already do that, you know. There are the few, the breadwinners, who are capable of showering and pretending they don't want to fuck your cat. Then there are the housekeepers; the ones who ensure jlube is in supply and are sprawled out and ready for the anal invasion. The last useful social tier is the hunter/gatherer. They find the new food, and generally help the breadwinners attract more hosekeepers and more hunters to enable the tribe to thrive. Occasionally, however, the leaches may disguise themselves as any of the above. This, of course, is what inhibbits this structure from growing further - that, and the fact that McDonalds does not deliver.

Food like most anything else is a complex of atoms grouped into molecules. Metals are defined by their atoms no matter how many bunch together into molecules(metallic crystals for instance). Synthesizing food is a matter of grouping atoms into molecules. Synthesizing precious metals involves transmutation of atomic nuclei which means controlling the number of protons and neutrons in the nuclei and that involves the nuclear and electric forces.

Nanotechnology can't simply transmute elements. That presently takes particle accellarators and will probably be done much cheaper and mass scale in the next fifty years given the present advances in quantum theory.

"And yeah. After thine Evil One hadeth seen thine perfection of the furry male that the great Celestial Ringtail hath made, His infernal jealousy was beyond measure, and He doth set about to undo all that hath been done. And thus thine Evil One doth made his abomination into form, and thine Evil One doth call it a "female", and it was an offense to all that is divine, for it hath not a weenis but in fact a big stinky vagina! OOOOOOOO!"

Ah, but there need not be a Church of Furry, for furry has been around since Man first drew animal-headed creatures on cave walls and erected temples to furries such as Ra and Anubis. Furry IS the original religion, don'tcha know. :roll:

That is comedy gold. Had me rolling on the floor laughing for a good while.

Nice one.

There might very well be someone who thinks that seriously. Heed my words: With all the "animal spirituality" and "furry lifestyle" thoughts about, someone WILL make a religious sect out of this, with Ra and Anubis as justification. In fact, put that down as my bid for furry activity prediction for 2005.

I dunno about Church of Furry, but there's plenty that'll argue that furrydom is older than dirt and dates back to the first time someone scribbled an animal-headed stick figure on a cave wall...........

...and then beat off to it.

The Meatrix has you.

Had to say that.. :twisted:

My general opinion of meat is that of Fat Bastard's: 'Get in my belly.'

Though I will hardly touch pork.

My meat heirarchy is chicken>pork>beef. I could eat chicken almost every day. Pork is a good second and very versatile. Beef is a mixed bag. I can never find a place that can do a decent steak, except maybe carne asada. A good burger is always welcome.. but, except for ground beef, I seem to have trouble digesting it. So, I don't eat much of it.

A guy who uses a boar as a representation eating pork...... OH NO! I'M OUT OF TOUCH WITH MY PERSONAL FURRY! WAAAAUUGGGHH!
