Psychological Evidence that we are not Natural born killers

Even psychologically, humans are ill equipped to kill and eat animals that have been freshly killed and still moving and bleeding and warm with their teeth.

In order to be natural meat eaters, we would have to be both psychologically and physiologically designed for killing and eating raw meat the way any animal in nature would.


Questions: Are not most people psychologically prepared to eat animals so long as they don’t have to kill it?

Answer:

That they are not willing to kill the animals they eat indicates that most people are not psychologically prepared to eat animals.

Psychologically, ask yourself if you could actually kill and sink your teeth into some small mammal, crushing it’s neck as its screams a shocking volume, or just eating it still alive. Baby carnivores start to eat the prey animal that the mother has killed before it is even fully dead. Can you picture a small girl wondering up to a bloody and dying pig and start to eat out its intestines. Unlikely. And yet we let the girl wander over to the pepperoni pizza.

Would you yourself be able to savor the animal’s blood, guts, bones and organs?

Animal killing hurts our feelings. Blood makes humans pass out. Do you think tiger with blood all over his face feels squeamish about putting his nose in the carcass? Can you imagine putting your nose into a carcass? That’s because you were never supposed to. Maybe you can force yourself if you wanted to, but 16-year-old boys and girls don’t naturally go out and search for corpses and carcasses to tear open and stick their noses in. You pick fruit.

Question: A frontiersman’s family from the 19th Century would not flinch from the sight of a dead carcass right?

A frontiersman’s family from the 19th century North American plains represents an infinitesimal percentage of the Homo sapiens to ever have populated the earth. They are also in the direct lineage of modern industrialized culture which is divorcing itself ever more completely from the natural order of things.
