Hey guys, what's up?
I'm a meat eater lurking around in your crew a bit to get a feel for what motivates you. I've always been able to understand why people become vegetarians though, but I was just wondering if there was something else I never heard before.
That's also why I quoted this post right here:

al right i have just reached the 6 month hurdle today. HURRAH'S!!! okay my reasons
-Look, your eating something that was walking around, alive and happy, then it was killed, cut up into little peices and heated with blood still coming out, then you place that animal between your teeth and let it slide down your throat. (sorry if im getting anyone sick) my point is, its barbaric.
I get your point, but exactly how is it barbaric? Ending a life, is that the barbaric part? Or is it ending the life of an organism that knew it was alive?
I can see why people don't eat meat because it requires you to end a life, but I also know that without doing so, we would never be where we are today as a society.
-secondly, the earth is already starving, and it can support something like 5 times its current population if no one ate meat. how about that!
The earth carrying 5 times its current population isn't actually a good thing. Wether we eat meat or not, our population grows, though scientist have prove that indicates that our current ways of living will cause the human population worldwide to stay at around 7 billion people. It won't grow any larger than that and I think not eating meat won't change a thing about it.
Also, more people on this earth will only cause more trouble (think about wars over territory, wars over wealth, extremely large need of energy and wars over who gets that energy, etc.)
Though I guess your point is not really that, but us stopping eating meat will allow us to have more food.
-thirdly, its sort of in protest against these adds that have been on my tv about six months ago. it basicly said that you had to eat meat to grow up healthy. (the slogan was "Red meat: You were meant to eat it") disgusting.
They're just trying to make money like every other business does. If enough people fall for the same old tricks and lies, they'll just keep repeating them. Has got very little to do with vegetarianism, and more with capitalism or commercialism.
i think thats about it. oh, by the way, you wanna eat meat and be a barbarian, be my guest. but think about what your eating.
Haha, I especially love this piece right here. What you're basicly saying is that you don't mind people eating meat, though it does make them barbarian. That to me seems a lot like you do care, otherwise you wouldn't call them barbarians, would you?
Also, my reasons for not becoming vegetarian are simple:
- I've always been healthy, so becoming vegetarian won't change anything about that.
- Wether I stop eating meat or not, it won't change a thing about how many animals are slaughter for meat consumption.
- I don't find eating meat gross, I actually enjoy it, even after seeing the entire process of what the animal and meat go through before I eat it.
What I do find disturbing, though it's got little to do with vegetarianism, is how they treat most animals. I have nothing against eating meat and brreding animals for that purpose, but I do believe it could be done in a way better way to make the animal at least a bit happy.
