Millennial Vegetarians or New Meat Manufacturing?
24 November 2008 (updated 20 March 2020)
Mormon prophetic tradition includes the idea that humans (and perhaps other animals) will no longer eat other animals when the Earth attains its millennial or terrestrial glory. For example, see this recent post at the Mormon blog, Times and Seasons.
Some have interpreted these prophecies to support vegetarianism. Others may be happy to learn that the technology to produce meat that has never been part of a sentient animal is already available. Would widespread use of such technology satisfy the prophecy?
