    Please do not push your believes down my throat.
    After reading through the thread I dont think any one was targeting you.



    Come to think of it, I didn't read anyone pointing the finger at me and telling me off for eating meat.

First try to be a vegetarian and if you are successful, you can condider being a vegan. In fact, most vegans i know of (unless cultivated from young by family) start be being a vegetarian first, then as their conviction grew, they decided to become vegan.

    And its not no point in being a vegetarian. The biggest use of animals is for food. A non-vegetarian may eat meat 3 times a day but do you buy a leather wallet everyday? And how much eggs, milk and butter can you use in a day (most Asian pple are not like ang mos who drink milk everyday)? By being a vegetarian, even though not a vegan, you can cut down on the use of animal products by 70-90%. That's not too bad.
    It is not u eat or use everyday. The fact that a cow must die in order for u to own a leather wallet/shoe. Then what is the point in being just a vegetarian if animal rights is the factor? U dun eat the cow but skin it so can have leather wallet/shoe. Like that might as well eat the cow as well! Nice jucy steak man!

    If its for religous reasons, then its fine. If its for animal rights, then i dispise such hypocrite. BTW, I meat too much to be a vegetarian.

    I guess there must be a reason why got create animals which are meat eaters and other non-meat eaters...

    The life on earth has to be kept a balance... if all of us are vege, then there will be too many chicken, cow, pigs etc. then perhaps they will start bringing strange disease to animal kingdom and eventually to human race... on the other hand, if human are all meat eaters, then of course they will be shortage of animals in future...

    So i think it is jus nature and work of god to keep a good balance of life on earth...

    Haahhaha...why worry abt too many animals when all of us turn Vege? Leave them to Mother Nature...

    If u believe in Karma... If all of us turn vege so that means no killings more mercy no killings means more compassion, benevolence so fewer will reincarnate into animals so naturally will be under controlled will not be overrun by them

    That will mean I will continue with even more "Bullsh*t.

    Not saying anyone here in this particular thread, however, seemed to get a lot of flack in general about my occasional 500 gm juicy red tenderlion habit.

    The pro vegeterian people in this particular thread are actually meaningfully more civilize then some of the "veggie nazi" I ran into day to day. Cie la vie, they seemed to be always the gentler sex also, what can I do.

    Same here, just lots of water and sleep when caught a flu. Don't need to see a doctor.

    I don't eat poultry, pork, beef, mutton but I consume eggs & dairy products. And occasionally some fish.

    Meat is actually animals' carcass marinated with delicious sauce.

    Being a vegetarian is only something you feel like to be one. Actually, everything in this world has life. The only different between a plant and animal is that you cannot hear it "scream" when you pluck it out from the ground.

    But I am starting to becoming a vegetarian

    Cannot explain the reason, but just feel like to be one.

    The different between animals n plant is that animal like us, humans have Soul (if u belief in Soul) whereas plants dun have!
