    Not sure if the question was aimed to me but, besides the wood we get from trees, there are some food that were actually living plants, and not the byproducts of a plant.

    Humans are omnivores, which means that their diet is meant to include both plants and meat. All in all, if you want to avoid eating animals, that's fine by me, even though I don't agree with you, but it should be done only after the body fully matures, since animal products are necessary for development. But if you happen to be a parent, DO NOT force your children to accept vegetarianism. They need meat to properly develop, and denying it to them is child abuse, pure and simple. Not to mention the idiots who feed their cats and dogs with soy instead of meat.

    Well the psychological motivations can be based on cowardice; that is to say some people hunt because subconsciously it is a way to make themselves feel more powerful, and thus safer. However I imagine that such desire for domination can be brought about an inate feeling of bloodlust and possibly madness.

    I think all of the good arguments have been made already: Animals eat each other & aren't considered unethical for doing so; eating your own kind is shown to have serious BAD consequences, but eating another kind is the way of nature; humans are the top of the food chain (mainly due to vastly superior intelligence); plants are alive also & technically "feel pain"; and eating meat doesn't have to mean inhumane treatment of animals (I DO think many people would prefer happy livestock) nor does it have to mean eating excessive amounts.

    I have a few things to add:
    - B12 is essential, is found in bacteria in soil (something like that) & is primarily consumed by humnans via animal products. Many vegans must take a B12 supplement to be healthy. If you have to take a supplement to your diet or use some very unusual, specialized source (ie. some kind of yeast stuff), then I'd say it's not "natural".
    - The human digestive system most closely resembles a pig's, not an ape's. Pigs are omnivores; they eat both meat & plants. The intestines, teeth, etc, support this as natural.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.
