What's wrong with it? I'm a vegetarian, I admit. What I mean is, I'm not a vegan. A vegan never eats any animal product. Since I sometimes do, I am
not a vegan. However, even though I have tasted the taint of animal flesh, I admire people who do not eat it at all. I admire it more when they choose
not to eat it out of respect for the lifeform, as opposed to religious indoctrination. I find it odd that society will justify people who have a
religious stance on an issue, but if those same people feel the same way but do not have a religious or scientific reason then they're disregarded.
For example, if I choose not to eat meat for religious reasons, it has more merit than if I choose not to because of reverence for animals. And if I
choose not to eat it because science says it's bad then it would be ok, but since science says it's good and well to eat meat then to not eat it would
I'm not even a very good vegetarian since I sometimes eat animal muscle. I don't actually buy the stuff myself. Others do and when I visit I
inevitably eat what they supply. I also occasionally eat fish. I have once or twice in the past month bought some sardines, for example.
I understand the argument that both animals and plants are alive and so we should respect both. But my own opinion is that I relate too much to
animals. Plants, I'm sure, are alive too. They have dna. They respond to stimulus. They reproduce. They probably feel something like pain too. But
when my ship sails and words turn to action, I make the choice that I have to eat something, so...
I just hope if there's a God it isn't a vegan. If so, we're probably screwed.
