The roots of Vegetarian/vegan stem from ancient native north American/ south American languages.

It is slang for "he who cannot hunt" or perhaps "he who has no brain".

Either definition is acceptable.

If god didn't want us to eat animals, he wouldn't have made them out of meat! Delicious, tender, beautifully marbled meat!

If God had created us, why do we need to eat at all?

This headline caught my eye this evening:

Woman Climbs Mt. Everest to prove "vegans can do anything", Dies

We used to have a couple living next to us who were vegans, and so arrogant about it. They had a little boy that was always so pale and sickly looking I got close to sneaking some hamburger into his lunch once when he was over playing with my kids.

Because God is indifferent about the carnally alive?

I don't understand why this isn't seen as propaganda, to trivialize valid ethical and lifestyle choices. More importantly, to minimalize the *people* who make alternative choices. I'm surprised at the low level of discourse among rational members here.

Without viewing the "comedy" skit, it's obviously a flawed comparison, as meat carries the stench of death and potential disease, as well as suffering and exploitation on an industrial scale, this is compared to a fresh leafy vegetable? It's an insult to common sense.

I hope my status on ATS is enough to influence a little open mindedness on the subject. Fair disclosure I'm 52 and been vegetarian half my life. I eat mostly junk food. Chinese, Mexican, Italian....all *better* w/o meat.

The real effect of such a nonsensical counter-intuitive is that; although the skit is apparently intended to ridicule the vegetarian, it actually reinforces the REAL story, being that meat IS GROSS. So, as a propagandist, I welcome the production of such work.

Because despite your views on ethics, vegetarians don't have the right to force their views on others and expect everyone to conform to their version of morality.

The video is more directed at the militant vegetarians than it is ordinary vegetarians. People that do not eat meat for "ethical reasons" or other reasons and don't actively shove their views and expectations down the throats of non-vegetarians are not condemned by most rational people.

I'm not saying people cannot be passionate about their views and recommend that others re-examine their own views and encourage some research on the topic. I think what I am saying is reasonable.

Hi, I eat meat and none of my vegan or vegetarian friends have ever tried to enforce their beliefs about how meat is not good to eat for whatever reasons, unless I ask them about it. I am close to four vegan/vegetarian people.
The only person that ever came off as fanatical to me, was some random guy handing out flyers that seemed to have had too much coffee or some other stimulate.
I admire the choice not to eat animal meat, but it just doesn't gross me out enough to not eat it.
My cat is a big fan of meat... he loves it. I don't agree with people trying to instill veganism or vegetarianism on carnivores, like cats and dogs.... now that is just wrong in my book.

I think the guy in the video is funny and have seen some of his other videos.

That's the thing, animals (carnivores) simply have no moral touchstone to rely upon, and are "faultless".

I believe that I can personally enact a standard that is higher than an animal.

However, I'm not good at feining my feelings....meat is pretty gross.s

Yeah, I may plant some this weekend. Imagine the tea sandwiches I could make with those? I might actually eat tea sandwiches then.

i hear the best way to cook them is to grill them, then let them sit in some beer for awhile.

Few things are better than beer cukes on the grill.

Sounds like the perfect thing to attempt to verify over the Memorial Day weekend.

I watched a bit of the video, and understand the sarcasm. I'm saying it actually does the opposite, and more or less raises awareness.

Face it though, meat is gross. Do you wash you hands after you hold a bit of raw broccoli in your hands? What about raw beef like in the video, or raw chicken?

Sometimes, the most demonstrative tests are the easiest ones. Confucius tells us that,"the beginning of wisdom is to call things by their true name".

Those villagers kept drinking blood straight from the cows necks, I figured, must taste like chocolate milk, therefor, I shall bathe, but I love bacon.


Maasai style.

You raging nerds can't even let people choose their own diets without arguing. You're the worst.
