    Atleast if you dont like Pigs. I would pick Sheep. Funnier and better.

    Here is image for what i mean

    Gonna take wild guess that.. Since "Camel Urine" is medicine with Mixed Milk in Islamic traditions. Then i guess this doesnt matter.
    Sahih al-Bukhari 5686 - Medicine - كتاب الطب - Sunnah.com - Sayings and Teachings of Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم)

    But yeah i am not gonna eat yellow **** meat. Just gross.

    Pigs in general i have heard is only gonna be dirty if you give them no choice, if they have open space they tend to be hygenic i heard.

    And i guess the religious counter argument is "Dont prohibit what Allah has allowed, or allow what Allah has allowed"

    Interms of religious culture of Islam. Dominance interms of the religious culture is very apparent in the text, so facts and science is often more a case of dominance and not logic.

    But let me know what you think?

    Pigs ran wild and ate dead human bodies unlike the other animals at the time I could see why they were thought of as unclean. A hog can be a mean monster I been chased and I wouldn't want to be caught. They would eat the dead bodies that were not buried and people saw this.

    Few things are funnier than watching a goat standing on top of a mule's back. Goats also have funny eyes.

    The main use (here) for goats is clearing land of vegetation. They will eat almost any plant and will destroy all shrubs and vines within a fenced area. In a temperate or jungle climate that becomes important, sometimes. Vines can be very invasive and can destroy trees. Therefore goats help to keep vines from destroying trees.

    Goat butter and goat cheese are also highly prized. Not many people eat goat meat, not around here. I also cannot buy goat meat in my grocery store, but I can buy goat cheese.

    Goats are weak and are often killed by coyotes, so goat ranchers often will also keep a mule to help protect them. The mule chases away coyotes.

    Billy goats can be musky and kind of gross. Wethered goats aren't.
    Pigs are not naturally clean. They have no problem wallowing in manure or mud, in fact, they love it.
    I've ate them all, nothing wrong with the meat.

    Pigs eat a lot! If they can get away with it they eat all day! And they don’t just eat the grass they eat the roots and the worms in the ground. They eat everything and anything.

    We are what we eat.
    Usury is forbidden as well as pigs.

    Greed is destructive.

    I assume the context is "Extravagance" which is a sin in Islam (or gluttony as its known in other religions). But also that, eating ugly things doesnt seem to be why it is forbidden "Because in hadiths a guy saw a chicken eat something he didnt like, so he vowed to not eat chicken again. Til muhammad said to him to cancel that vow" so seems more of a spiritual ugliness and not a literal one. "

    But to argue here. Dont goats eat literally anything too?

    But as for what animal consumes most food. People have heavy debates here about it atleast. Such as Pandas and such animals
    https://www.quora.com/Which-animal-consumes-the-most

    edit: Just to add a interesting argument. But goats do get worms (not sure if its because they literally eat anything) But if pigs have more power to have immune system, wouldnt that be like... creating immunity? Because variety of eating is what helps (but obviously i dont wanna eat pee food) just out of the question.

    But the overall best interms of human life quality is variation

    Can give one example. If you just watch tv each day (as in thats all you do and nothing else), you will built up alzheimers because your mind goes on auto repeat. But if you lets say, you change direction of a path you take on a road, then that lessens Alzheimers (simple examples of it) It could aswell be activities that helps like Airhockey or simply reading a book. Overall variation is good for the mind.

    Same thing is with food, since it enforces immune system. But obviously overeating makes one a blob so thats not good or healthy. But sticking to apples or varied food does seem to be best option. Interms of energy and burning energy, and also psychological mindset so that you dont shrivel up interms of function each day.

    I think there was a funny joke in Death Note from L "Actually you dont get fat if you burn calories by using your brain"

    Goat meat can be good in stews. A bit like mutton or lamb. But not common in the west.

    I have goats. Yes, bucks are ... weird and disgusting, which is why I outsource that 'service' for my dairy goats. My nannys are delightful. I won't have pigs (for obvious reasons) also because I got injured rather badly by one, so I won't even watch over them for neighbors. I don't eat mammals, that's why I have chickens. Eggs too, from the ducks. (yes, I shechita my own chickens.)

    Pigs are likely to be the more intelligent animals amongst all these others, and perhaps seen as rivals to humans - the less intelligent ones at least. :oops:
