The Immorality of Eating Meat

Here is the best essay I've ever read on the moral status of nonhuman animals. Please read it. If you reject the conclusion, then, to be consistent, you must either deny the validity of the argument or reject a premise. In other words, there are three ways to respond to Engel's argument:
1. Deny its validity (i.e., claim that the conclusion does not follow from the premises).
2. Reject a premise.
3. Accept the conclusion.
Read the essay carefully and choose wisely.
