Is 3D printed meat vegan friendly?

BlueVeins · 22-25
Sure, as long as the inputs are also vegan-friendly.
@BlueVeins Macromolecules are not only "sourced from the cells of sentient beings".

@SomeMichGuy They can be though.
@BlueVeins Yes. But, if they ARE, then the answer is trivially determined, as you have said.

The more intriguing point is mine: if a set of atoms are assembled into what looks, feels, smells tastes like REAL meat...is that fine for vegans or not? There should be no problem.

no, it uses animal souls

You mean if nothing died to produce the meat? Some people would be okay with that. It would depend on why you were eating vegan.

Can't I just order the Fucking Rib Eye?

@Zaphod42 Take it from a cow for God's sake

@HoraceGreenley GMO cow or android cow? 🙃😈😁

@DeWayfarer Any cow
So...like eating an organ created on a 3D printer for the purpose of replacing a bad human organ...?

Real meat is real meat, assembled either the natural way, grown in a lab, or printed...

So I'd go with no. The "inputs" might be vegan, but all matter is made up of just over 100 different chemical elements (and anything you will actually find around will be made up of only the first 92), which are not inherently vegan or non-vegan, but are the building blocks of either.
