Stu: Unlike atheists and Christians, Muslims and Jews offer a prayer to their god to thank him/her/it, and to thank the animal, for the sacrifice of a life to secure another. It is called "Kosher" and "Hallal"...You eat meat from packages bought in a store. If you had to go out in the wild and hunt and kill an animal, you would have more understanding of life and its consequences. I'll let you think about that as you order a "Mighty Meaty" from Dominos...

Stu: My passion is Chinese and Oriental food. Indian food is too "chaotic" for my god-like taste buds. =)

Apparently, according to evolutionary theory, our ancestors, of the vaguely human kind, were vegetarian. And our teeth seem to reveal that we are more suited to chewing leaves than tearing at steaks...

Hmmm.. meat is high energy compared to vegetation. It is notable that chimpanzees eat meat (they can be quite cannibalistic) but the less successful gorilla does not. Top of te food chain tend to be carnivores...

Why would an atheist offer a prayer to any deity? That would be rather pointless? Halal slaughtering causes untold and increased suffering to the animals being slaughtered, so a prayer to a non-existent deity doesn't really help much as far as I'm concerned, they can keep the prayer but halal is barbaric and should simply be outlawed by the EU.

As for your pompous and sententious lecturing based on pure assumptions about complete strangers you know nothing about, you've been told before, it's rather tedious.

Nestov: Why do we not use the combatants we kill in warfare as food? The bodies produced by our military conflicts could feed a starving nation. But then while killing is common in the natural world, cannibalism is very rare.

Although I still enjoy a greasy burnt bacon sandwich, I do not eat any other pork. Many years ago I heard that pork has the same colour, texture and flavour as human flesh. Since then I have never eaten pork. Not for a religious or moral reason but simply because I cannot enjoy a food that reminds me of Hannibal Lecter =)

Chimpanzees do... it is clear from anthropological studies of primitive tribes that many of them did (until we interfered). Mainly we do not now because the tribes are bigger and the cost of doing so is rather more serious. From a pragmatic point of view war is not the same as eating for necessity. If we grazed on our neighbours what is to stop them grazing on us. Actually there is some suggestion that this happened (still does?) in the backwoods of the USA.

Try watching Fried Green Tomatoes At The Whistle Stop Cafe (Special Edition) [1991] [DVD]. The film is worth a view. Most enjoyable with some interesting sub plots. One of my all time favourites.

Stu: As you guys slag me off by calling me "spin cycle", without understanding that my choice of the tag "Spin" is meant to express the nonsense of propaganda and personal views, call me as you wish. But not after 9pm..

Stu: my post was both humorous and serious at the same time. Read my post and think about it.... Hint; Cannibalism is not only a physical act....

I detest the absurdity of brussel sprouts, cauliflower and "Lentils"...Proof that God does not exist..=)

At last....a really good thread. Well done stu!

Let's examine the evidence. Gomsy is nearly fifty four and has not eaten meat for thirty five years. His blood pressure is 120/75....RHR-62....in the last 10 years he has had two days off work with illness...gomsy is okay health wise...(physically, perhaps not mentally...nudge, nudge, wink wink)...

Human beings can live very healthily from nuts, seeds, fruit, legumes and perhaps some eggs and dairy, maybe fish. No one 'needs' to eat meat. Humans eat it, because they want to.
