Expanding on the thought behind the last post:
I feel bad for vegatarians; animal lovers not the ones who do it in a misguided health scheme.
People are predators. That is part of our nature. From a scientific point of view we can break down how we arrive at that classafication:
We have eyes in the front of our skull and not on the sides. All mammals in the animal kingdom are split into these two catagories. We surmise the reason to be that predators need a straight line of site and prey need to watch their backs.
We have canines.
We have a digestive and metabolic system capable of transforming consumed flesh into energy.
So people are predators. We are also much more than just predators, but all those other instincts and labels fall under and are biased by our most primal instinct. And there is no reason to label it good or bad, it simply is. Why deny who you are? You can't change it. You could be the meekest and mildest andmost vulnerable person ever, you could be ghandi and your classification is still predator; just not a very efficient one.
So vegatarians deny their most basic instinct. They have a vacumn in their mind, the dissonance between what they think and who their genes have created.
The same is true of all control and differences. Laws are created, and people behave in a manner consistent of a struggle. We struggle to balance what we think with who we are.
I think we should practice our breathing and eat more hot dogs.
