Bugs, Bryan Caplan | EconLog | Library of Economics and Liberty: "The most compelling objection to animal rights, to my mind, has long been... bugs.  Bugs are animals.  Every human being directly kills bugs just by walking - and indirectly kills bugs by renting and buying constructed housing.  Yet I've never heard even a strict vegan express a word of moral condemnation for this mass animal killing"

So what?  I've previous defended what I call the Argument from Conscience.  The gist of it: 

1. If even morally scrupulous advocates of view X don't live in accordance with X, the best explanation is that they don't really believe X.  

2. If even the dedicated advocates of X don't really believe X, X is probably false.
