I never initiated this discourse. I just speak my mind. Sorry if you feel that's bigoted. I could also say the same of you, do you resort to name calling with everyone who disagrees with you?

But there were never any non-meat eating tribes, so I can't answer that. We were scavengers before we hunted. Being Vegan is just another link in the evolutionary chain.
Perfect! Humans are natural meat eaters just like lions, tigers and sharks! Thank you for your support on this subject matter!

You really are ignorant regarding this subject matter. What one believes is not part of the evolutionary process.

So now it is an opinion and not part of evolution? You seem to be spewing random phrases in a willy nilly kind of fashion.

How come animal activists like yourself never speak out against the seal hunt off Namibia? An estimated 700,000 seals off Namibia and the govt pays their fishermen to cull 10% every year to protect their fishery.

Canada's east coast...estimated 5 million seals+...and animal rights activists go nuts and get all vocal over 250,000 being hunted.

Same thing with the EU...only seal products from Inuit and other aboriginals are ok. White fishermen and hunters?...nope, they are bad people.

You are correct that lions, tigers and sharks do not currently like carrots. The "never will" part is completely unknown. You really have no idea what you are talking about.

What one believes is learned...and not innate. It is subjective and based upon time and circumstance. It is not evolutionary.

Sort of like everyone else on this thread? Are you trying to say that your opinion matters more than mine because you have cheerleaders backing you up and I don't? Really? I don't need backup sweetie because I have a backbone. Unless you're going to stick to the topic and actually refute my comments, stfu. And yes Off the Trail, I would slap this asshole if he were in front of me.

There are activists who speak up about the Namibia seal hunt... If you were an activist, you'd understand that not all animal issues will make it mainstream, there are so many...

Yep, it's natural for a predator to set up bait, sit in a tree and kill an animal from afar with a gun, or bow and arrow. I guess claws and canines evolved for nothing. Human beings, predators? More like brainwashed human exceptionalism BS. Speaking of BS, you're so full of it I can smell you from here, go wash up.

Why do you say that? Because my capacity for empathy goes beyond feeling compassion for my fellow man? If that makes me a freak, then I'm honored.
