actually speaking, an animal eats an animal, animal eats plants, even plants eat animal and insects, and a plant also eats another plant...that is the universal law and knowing that, i dont have a big problem in consuming meat and yes...i do sometimes suddenly feel guilty about it, donno why...when the thought is intense, i stop having them for a period of time and then start again when the thought subsides in a month or so and in that time period, when i switch to being a vegetarian, there also comes the problem as i kill the plants for my consumption...so just kinda confused about it all as to when people can eat plants without any guilt, why cant eat the animals too?

I have no problem eating meat. I believe God put different things on earth for us to eat. After all, in the OT, he had them use animals for sacrifices; why not for food?

well, you shouldn't. i asked someone else about this who is really religious. he told me that God sent animals and meat in Earth so that we could feed ourselves. this is a law. but even i, as you did, feel sorry sometimes when i eat meat. i imagine how hard it must have been for the animal to say goodbye to its family and everything touching. but i still like and eat meat!
