It's easier to make meat taste like meat than to make plants taste like meat and deliver the same protein and fats.

What is too long in the course of human history? Perhaps the time needed to develop lab meat will be beyond my lifetime (I doubt it), but it will probably happen eventually.

I'm not saying it's not a shame, I'm just saying it isn't newsworthy. The only people that mourn the loss of the animal are in the human species.

Sure, other animals can feel a sense of loss, but they don't comprehend the future and fear it like humans, and don't suffer the loss of peers like we do.

Concerning the ethics of zoos... I haven't given it much thought. My daughter is not free to go anywhere and lives in captivity to my wife and I, but in return we ensure her health, safety, and wellbeing.
