If Man is not supposed to eat animals, then why are they made out of meat?

Well if we are going onto phylisophocal one liners, any one else noticed that the largest animals on Earth are in the main, vegetatarian, including some huge whales?

Funnily enough, I looked this up the other day. I was wondering not about the origin of butterfly, but the relation to Schmetterling. And voila:

From Middle English buterflie, butturflye, boterflye, from Old English butorflēoge, buttorflēoge, buterflēoge (from butere (“butter”)), equivalent to butter +‎ fly. Cognate with Dutch botervlieg, German Butterfliege (“butterfly”). The name may have originally been applied to butterflies of a yellowish color, and/or reflected a belief that butterflies ate milk and butter (compare German Molkendieb (“butterfly”, literally “whey thief”) and Low German Botterlicker (“butterfly”, literally “butter-licker”)), or that they excreted a butter-like substance (compare Dutch boterschijte (“butterfly”, literally “butter-shi**er”)). Compare also German Schmetterling from Schmetten (“cream”), German Low German Bottervögel (“butterfly”, literally “butter-fowl”). More at butter, fly.

An alternate theory suggests that the first element may have originally been butor- (“beater”), a mutation of bēatan (“to beat”).[1]

Superseded non-native Middle English papilion (“butterfly”) borrowed from Old French papillon (“butterfly”).

On the subject of the English language, you might want to use 'alternative theory' instead of 'alternate theory'. :-)

You only eat things that only eat grass? So are porina, armyworm, leather jackets, wireworm and greasy cutworm. all grass eating bugs, on your menu also?

Btw Im a bit confused by how things are named in english
e.g. why is it called a Butterfly? Butter doesnt normally fly

Maybe it was originally a flutterbye? Thay makes more sense to me.

Just as much as a veggie, or a trendy vegan, eats hemlock, deadly night shade, oleander, etc. :rolleyes::rolleyes: :p

I was on a motorcycle trip across western Canada and saw a billboard for a restaurant with the picture of a deer. The text read,"There's room for all of God's creatures... right next to the mashed potatoes".
