Tough choice... live long and suffer from depression, or die young and horrible.


No choice at all, a life without bacon is like a life without sunshine.


I think that's why the middle east is such a hot spot.

I couldn't imagine not eating meat. No wonder they're depressed.

Also, if we're not meant to eat animals, why did god make animals out of food?

Have you ever been pregnant?

I dont think so...

Have you ever made a woman pregnant?

...

Likewise...

Have you ever been friends with an animal?


No, yes (2), and yes.


Any other questions that have nothing to do with the story?

Filet wrapped in bacon. YUMMY. Bacon is the only thing that can make a filet Mignon even better.

Humans have been eating food for as long as we could kill it's ass before it could kill us.

It is literally that simple.

Since I've been on my diet, I have been very sad.

The thought of not eating tasty bacon and only eating leafy greens just makes me want to deep fry a small pig and eat it with butter.

You brought up the topic of pro-life... asked me if having highly evolved empathy is similar to being pro-life...

I think basically yes it is.



I don't understand...

If you answered yes to more than 1 of those questions..

why is it so difficult to understand the connection to this topic that you were already making by asking me about pro lifers anyway... pls... pls.... pls... stop.... just stop... think more

Remember we are made to eat saturated fat, and not most everything that is white.

If they were meant to be slaughtered for food, why did he give them the ability to feel love and pain?

Nah. I think it's because we figured out they were made out of tasty tasty food. The killing us thing was just an excuse.

Not like I need an excuse

Oh, the depression could have nothing to do with diet though... The decision to go vegetarian could have been made because of depression. What? But the researchers did not rule out the possibility that the vegetarians’ decisions to adopt their diet could have been a symptom of depression from the start.







Bs ALERT WARNING WARNING Bs ALERT...




They didn't rule out the possibility that the reason to not eat slaughtered animals was because of depression...

But they did rule out the possability that vegetarians have a more evolved sense of empathy for the feelings of other sentient beings, and are by nature more likely to struggle with emotions given the levels of suffering there is in this world.





WoW! Thats one of the highest horses I'we ever seen! How you doing up there? I can barely see you.

So we would know just how tasty it was going to be?

Vegetarianism is not natural.

Humans would eat anything that did not eat them, bugs-plants-birds-worms-bark-...the list is literally endless.

You know why? They were starving.

Your posts were odd and I gave you an odd answer.

You seem awfully angry and frustrated. Somewhat depressed too.

I recommend a bacon sandwich with a side order of veal.

You missed the point, if you had nothing to eat for 4 days, and a yard bird (chicken) crossed your hungry (not starving) ass, you would kill, cook (or not) and eat it. And hope its "wife" chicken crosses your path tomorrow.

Now if you were starving, all bets are off. Like your ancestors you would eat anything that didn't eat you first.
