    I'm not a vegetarian, but I like vegetarian food. Especially if I've been partying a lot, eating pizzas, barbecued stuff a lot... Then I will probably like to eat veggie stuff for a few days. Wok, quorn etc.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    I was for years (I felt for the animals ) and I was diligent but it wasn't right for me... I used to get very rundown, tired all of the time etc. I made a decision to eat meat again which was difficult to follow through with. But I feel so much better and much sparkier eating meat again.

    Actually, I admire that. The vegetarian I respect the most tells me his reasoning is that he wouldn't be able to bring himself to kill an animal for food, so he won't eat animals others have killed on his behalf.

    I wouldn't say I think vegetarianism is noble, exactly, but I do respect it. Our nature is to be omnivorous, so I don't think there is a basic wrong to be righted here. (Although I do realize that animal cruelty on farms is a separate issue.) I understand the health-related reasoning more easily, even though I do know some overweight vegetarians (Mmmm, cheese!)

    But even though I understand vegetarianism, I really don't understand veganism. My two closest friends are vegan, and I just don't get it. The animals aren't being killed. Laying eggs and giving milk are two things the animals would be doing anyway. Is it a more philosophical argument akin to slavery in humans?

    And lastly, a question for vegetarians. I just thought of this now, so it might be stupid. Would you eat an animal that had died of natural causes? I know nothing about farming or animal husbandry, so I don't know if such animals would be safe for human consumption. But do you think there would be a market for "Vegetarian-Safe" meat, where dairy cows, chickens kept for egg production, and other animals live out their lives instead of being slaughtered?

    I want to be a vegetarian, but I'm too lazy and poor to make that happen in this here city. It used to be more affordable in Baton Rouge. I think meat makes you fat, and it's not supposed to be good for A and AB blood types. I'm A+

    As Falcarius said before;

I probably watched too much 'David the Gnome'. Seriously, I learnt most of my ethics and morals from watching 'David The Gnome', when I was about 5. The reason I started to believe in treating animals and the environment with respect, anti-materialism, and pacifism was because I learnt it from David The Gnome. To this day I remember the part of the first episode of 'David the Gnome' when David says, "What is the idea of of coming in to our peaceful forest and blasting away with your noisy guns at every animal you see? And of course you make the water so dirty the fish can't live in it, and the air so full of smoke nobody can breath." Watching 'The Animals Of Farthing Wood', and my mother making me walk by the carcasses of various animals hung in and outside the butcher's shops in The Covered Market also played a role in me stopping eating meat.

    Biologically this is very unhealthy. I am a little busy right now but can explain later.
    Seek freedom and become captive of your desires, seek discipline and find your liberty.

    "If you go looking for something in particular, your chances of finding it are very bad, because of all the things in the world, you're only looking for one of them. If you go looking for anything at all, your chances of finding it are very good, because of all the things in the world, you're sure to find some of them."

    Yes, no, maybe, I don't know, could you repeat that question . . .

    What is your reasoning?
    Health reasons. Not eating meat = drastic plunge in my body pain levels.

    I supplement calcium, vitamin D and B12.
