May as well say eating vegetables decreases the ability to read emotional response.

Though .. never mind.
Well, all my family eat meat and are good, peaceful people. But the whole argument that carnivores are superior because they could conquer vegetarians on a physical level is kind of weird. I agree we're hard wired to eat meat. When I was growing up no one had to force me to eat my hamburger, but they sure did have to force me to eat my vegetables. I understand bro.

In my experience meat eaters are much more into forcing their viewpoint and trying to silence any other opinions. On LL alone, I've seen lots of anti-vegetarian threads
but not a single one by a vegetarian trying to force their views down anyone's throat. I only reply in response to these posts because obviously you guys want to have a debate with someone who doesn't agree with you, or else it would be preaching to the choir.
I get a grin out of whichever proponent tries to label what the other group does as "wrong" somehow. Vegetarians usually look down their noses at meat eaters because of the harm they do to animals, and meat eaters usually dismiss vegetarians as frivolous hypocrites. I think it's a whole lot of wasted time worrying about what you eat. As for the harm to animals bit, it's how the whole ecosystem works: those higher up the food chain prey on those lower down, and it isn't pretty when a wolf rips an elk calf's guts out through its rectum, or when a hawk tears open the breast of a grouse. From ants eating other insects alive up to killer whales tearing whales apart, the whole animal kingdom is awash in blood. If the vegetarians want to sit it all out, fine, but I'm going to kill something for my fire. Bon Apetit'

Everyone discussing this should just be thankful they are in a position to choose what they eat.

A lot of people in the world aren't so fortunate.

Also, given the large amount of beef we consume, shouldn't leather goods be a lot cheaper than they are?

It's a hobby, a topic of conversation, a political statement, a moral stance, an expression of individuality, and a superior neediness (like the Princess in the folk tale The Princess And The Pea, the vegetarian's psyche cannot bear the moral challenge of eating a fellow animal just as the Princess' delicate skin cannot bear the pressure of a single dried pea underneath her while she sleeps...no matter how many mattresses lie between her and the pea).

The human digestive system will process an amazing variety of foodstuffs, and possibly no other omnivore on Earth eats a greater range of material: from whale blubber to fungi to sea urchin and insects, reptiles, amphibians, roots, berries, nuts, eggs, and pork cracklings, to fermented vegetables and beyond. With the exception of common grass, if it is digestible at all then we eat it. So if a person decides to specialize, and avoid whole categories of food intake (such as meat), they can do that and live a healthy life. Yet, as the OP points out, unless a person eats only carrion and carrion byproducts, they will be consuming some live organism---including plants, and there goes their supposed moral superiority.

Life feeds upon life. It's how the entire pyramid of life is constructed. There's nothing wrong with that.

THIS^^^^^^

Coming from a logical standpoint, everything is relative. I believe that Vegetarians are only vegetarians because they believe every animal is "tortured/Murdered" before it arrives on their plate. while this may be true and is a horrible inevitability.

The Fact remains that Humans would not have excelled into our modern intelligence if not for consuming protein. so to all you vegetarians. your very ability to comprehend and distinguish between carnivore, omnivore, and herbivore is the consequent of animal murder.

The only respect that i have for vegetarians is that they "MONITOR" the things that they throw into their gullet. unlike the vast majority of people that throw any and Everything into that fat-ass Maw they call a mouth.

I eat meat. i don't eat animals that are older than me. How am i gonna eat a 40 year old lobster that has been on this planet longer than me?
