The key word is sentient.
An unfertilised egg is not sentient, so yes there is a difference between a gorilla and an egg, at what point a fertilised egg becomes sentient is a a very difficult subject.
The Acidophilus bacteria in Activa and other live youghurts does not die when we ingest it. We are roughly 40% bacteria, it is absolutely everywhere, whether it is sentient or not is another matter.
Let me ask you Highland or indeed everyone....
Is there any intrinsic difference between eating a gorilla and a fish ? And how many minutes per pound for prime silverback roast ?
As a person that was brought up on a small holding, where my parents grew and had slaughtered cows, sheep, pigs and chickens; caught wild animals such as rabbits and pheasants and hung for days and weeks certain pieces of meat and game I should have a good understanding of meat and eating meat. Well, I can safely say I am a meat wuss, I can't cope with it raw and can only eat bland cuts and I'm soo squeamish I'ts unreal and I could not bring myself to eat cat or rabbit it's not that it's not meat it psychological. I can't eat beef joint either cus they have to be well done and that just makes it tough.
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close
