I had a big mac about 3 hours ago, there was probably about 16 monkeys, 12 chickens and 16 yaks in there or something.

I aint a vegetarian and i dont mind others being one ... i eat veg food when im out with them :) I just like to ask them one question ....

Q) You are a vegetarian ... why dont you eat meat and stuff ... as in why are you a vegetarian
A) Cause my religion says so/i dont like killing and eating living organisms

[ If answer was the religion one then ask why ... the usual answer is cause my religion says that i shouldnt kill/eat living organisms ]

So basically we are at the same place ...

Q) You eat rice/wheat or any of its products right ?
A) Yeah

Q) You know that if you would have planted those seeds then you would get plants ... so you are technically killing potential of life arent you ? So how's that right
A) ...

I was wondering if someone could explain this to me. If you dont eat it cause you dont like it or something .... ok ... thats a matter of choice.
But not eating cause you dont want to kill seems an odd reason to me tbh :)

Just my 2 cents ;)

JA, I think its somewhere along the lines that animals have feelings etc. Comparing animals to plants doesn't work very well :p

But plants live ... thats reason enough not to discriminate ....

You dont kill someone off just cause he is in a coma do you ? (i know it aint the same ... but you stay by the person :))

Plus you need plants to live ... they are integral parts of the ecosystem .... so ?

Plants being immobile and not being able to communicate isnt any reason for eating them and not the animals

Yeah yeah ... im a non vegetarian if you dont already know it/have figured it out :P

RE: Are you a Vegetarian?
i aent a vegetarian...but i eat only fishes, prawns, chicken, meat...no beef etc...again for religious reasons...why? cos in hindu religion, cow is worshipped..thats why!
no pig, thats against religion. sea food is not against religion, but i just dont like that!
and not to forget, the first war of independence in india started in 1857 against the foriegn rule, cos the Indian soldiers were forced to use cartridges which were greased with pig and cow fat, and they had to use their teeth to remove the catridge cover or something...that fired the revolt..JA and Felu must be knowing...so here, its kindof...sacred

I don't see the point of being vegetarian, except if something happened in your life which made you never eat meat anymore. The human is shaped as a hunter, so why can't we eat them?

Okay, eating threatened animal types (like whales) is wrong, since there are only a few left on earth, but what's wrong with a nice roasted chicken? Those chickens are bred to be eaten! ;)

It just depends on your thoughts about animals, how much you love them. :)

simple answer: because humans have a choice. We don't live by instinct.

A human isn't a carnivore, it's an omnivore.

What's wrong with eating no animals?
There are plenty of vegetarion alternatives for the minerals, vitamines, iron, etc which a human being requires each day.

Exactly, it's the choice of the individual. There is nothing wrong in choosing to eat only plants, only meat or only whatever. Humans have that choice and it should be respected (from both sides!!!)

I'm not a vegetarian, nor a veganist.

RE: Are you a Vegetarian?
Some joke I heard in this forum a while ago:
"I love vegetarians. Why? More meat for us."

Please don't take this as an offence :)

I'm not a vegetarian, but I did have a bad experience with vegetarian food.
By vegetarian food, I mean fake meat. A real fake meat.

So, last year when I had a vacation to the place my sister has been studying, we went out for a breakfast.
It was quite early in the morning, so there were not many restaurants open.
Then, we went to a restaurant, ordered the food, and started eating.

At first, I noticed my meat tasted funky, but I thought it was because I was very hungry.
My sister and my cousin kept saying, "How's the flour?"
I didn't catch what they meant.
I thought they were talking about the shrimps fried in flour until they mentioned that what we were eating was vegetarian food.

I'm not exaggerating, but I lost my appetite for at least 3 days after eating that food :p

I like eating real vegetables (from plants), not fake meat.
In fact, we are encouraged to eat as much vegetables as the meat we eat. Real vegetables are good for our metabolisms.

'fake' meat (quorn) tastes basically the same as normal meat most of the time. i've eaten vegetarian burgers/sausages etc (we have loads in the house cos my veggie mate lives here) and i can hardly taste a difference. (yes there is a difference, but it's not disgusting) ;/
