Why? Meat is a great source of nutrients. In many ways it's much higher than veggies, pound for pound.
Meat is a highly inefficient and environmentally damaging way of getting protein, even not taking into account the cruelty in killing a sentient being for food. Meat production takes far more water and plant material to produce than eating the plant material itself. It also takes up alot more arable land. And then there is the destruction of the environment of the sea by gross over-fishing.

The reality is, as the human population of the Earth continues to multiply exponentially, eating meat will become unsustainable. Eating meat is immoral, for many, many reasons.

The Center For Jewish Genetics disagrees with you.

So if your parents gave you up at birth to a couple in Italy you would still be a Jew and not an Italian? What exactly about you would be Jewish? Infants are not born itno religion, for they can't comprehend it at that point and they know nothing about it. You have no religon as a newborn infant, your parents do but you don't and if you were adopted at birth, you are not influencd one iota by your natural parents religon so how is it you would still be a Jew? Could it be your GENETICS? LOL

If eating meat is immoral then nature itself is immoral. Every day on this planet countless animals are run down and eaten alive by other animals.

OK, take race out if it. The fact remains that Judaism claims to be a special tribe of humans set aside as God's favored people. That's pretty obnoxious, ideologically-speaking, don't you think?

<quoted text>I'm not lying nor am I a liar.
There are MANY numerous sources of protein other than that found in animal flesh and which our bodies metabolize much better and more efficiently than animal flesh.
Added to that is that most Americans OD on protein meaning there is more protein-rich urine in the USA than pretty much any other country.
That means we consume an excess of protein which then is simply pissed away.
BTW, here are 15 excellent examples of meatless sources of excellent protein:
Item
1. Soy Beans (boiled without salt)
2. Ricotta Cheese
3. Low Fat Cottage Cheese
4. Lentils (boiled without salt)
5. Bulgur (unprepared) 1 Cup 17g
6. Split Peas (boiled without salt)
7. Oat Bran (unprepared) 1 Cup
8. Red Kidney Beans (boiled without salt)
9. Large Lima Beans (boiled without salt)
10. Rice - White Long Grain (parboiled)
11. Cowpeas (boiled without salt)
12. Yogurt (plain with skim milk)
13. Potatoes (Gratin with butter)
14. Soft Tofu
15. Dry Roasted Peanuts (without salt)
Yet ANOTHER item to be added to the already very lengthy list known as:
WHAT RR DOESN'T KNOW
Yeah- I can smell sh*t- it emanates from every single post of yours.
Get with Pat- between the chill that emanates from her and the stench of sh*t which emanates from you, you can both enjoy some SH*TSICLES- LOL!!
See? There you go again, thinking that because you type something that you taught me something.

I already know all that stuff.

I make split pea soup at least once a month. I have rice at least three times a week. There's yogurt in my fridge right now and there's peanuts in my pantry right now.

You're not teaching me anything new, dumb ass.

<quoted text>RR- tell me again how a site called "Jesus is Savior" is a "hater" site as you claimed it was.
You know something? I spend a LOT of time doing research FOR you and then posting what I find.
Can you at least be honest ENOUGH to tell me if you EVER bother to look at the info or links or sources I provide? It sure doesn't seem as if you do; the most recent example of that was you ASSuming I use BMI indexes when the FACT of the matter is that I've posted links to you of regular height/weight charts so that right there tells me that despite me having posted the links to those charts for you numerous times, you've never bothered to look.
Of course, that example could be due to denial; it's quite common for fat people to deny they are fat like YOU do.
Oh- and thanks for the "great" source- wiki- <rolling eyes....> Wiki CAN be a great source but given the MANY other sources out there regarding quotes from the founding fathers, that is the BEST you could do?
Funny how it always seems that YOUR best is the WORST for the MAJORITY of people.
You're a fat slob bottom-feeder.
If you're trying to talk smack, you're not doing a very good job.

Of course I read your links, but I also check for honesty and integrity in those links. And most of the time there is no honesty in them, it seems like all you do is Google and Google and Google until you find the "link" that best suits your argument.

Irregardless, you are just backpedaling now. You originally said that most were catholic, and that obviously isn't the case.
Oh so you like lying to?

I have never, ever said that the founding fathers or "mostly Catholic".

Do you and OCB have a lying contest going on or something?

And if you think RR sounds hot, then you like seeing steam rise off sh*t.

The difference is that it is wrong to continue to blame whites for the inability of blacks to live up to white norms.
"White norms"? Are you serious?

Anyway, I'm not blaming white people for anything. As I've said before, current situations are based on a complex web of previous events which led up to now. YOU are the one seeing things in overly simplistic black-or-white, literally.
The difference is we have racist affirmative actions laws that discriminate by race instead of embracing individualism and judging every person on their individual merits and not on race thanks to the denial of racial differences.
I agree with you on that at least.
The difference is that whites are not to blame for high black felony rates via discrimination by law enforcement, black behavior is to blame.
Again, overly simplistic. Black people, even black people in black ghettos, didn't pop into existence yesterday with no circumstantial history.
This is the difference. By insisting the races are just alike behaviorally when in fact they are not, it leaves blacks thinking they are being treated unfairly since disparities exist.
Do races have inherent behavioral traits? Where is the science?
The fact a disparity exists does not in any way prove it is the fault of whites. However, if the matter is looked at with a presumption that the races are equal then what is left really but to blame the majority? I actually look forward to whites being a minority group in America for it will end this racist blame game once and for all and when whites still outperform blacks and Jews outperform other whites and so on as it is now what excuse with the egalitarians use then? They will eventually be forced to accept reality.
You are getting lost in generalizations. That aside, I am not saying that the plight of black people who are socially aberrant is the sole fault of white people or anyone else. Of course there is culpability to the individual. Most of the blame should lie there in most cases IMHO.

It is obnoxious but they all do it. Muslims look down on infidels, christians teach the only pathway to heaven is througn Christ, in other words everybody is tossed into the fire but them. They all pull this divisive, our dogma beats your dogma crap. Religon is worthless divisive nonsense.

I will assume you've seen "The Graduate"- if so, you will probably know what I am referring to:
"One word for you, Benjamin-just one word: Plastics."
That movie was made in 1967 and it was quite prophetic that that line was stated.
Metal is a rarity these days- in everything from household appliances to automobiles.
Plastic is all the rage.
You are ridiculously uninformed.

Have you seen all the "rage" of stainless STEEL appliances?

Get a clue before you post your ignorance.

Well that's true, it does take more water to grow a cow than it does to grow a Hedda lettuce. But it takes something like 4 pounds of lettuce to equal the same amount of nutrients and 1 pound of beef.

Personally, I don't eat a whole lot of red meat, unless it's lean. I eat a lot of chicken, several times a week.

You can still find out what the 'smell' is. Just go on line and use the troubleshooter. You'll need your model number. I just had to replace the heating element in my oven (GE) but other than that it has been OK. I am going to switch to Induction pretty soon and then I won't be using the oven for to much.

I've never used a gas stove so I don't know how the broiler works but it might just be some insulation burning off.

No- I look for links that will meet with your approval; that's why I made it a point to use the JESUS IS SAVIOR website which you promptly called a "hater" website despite the name of the site and that the author of the site lamented that Thomas Jefferson really wasn't a Christian.

Of course you didn't acknowledge that I used a site that is pro-Christian; to have done so would have been you having to admit you spoke out of your LARD ass- yet AGAIN.

You are smarmy, you are a total sleaze-ball in addition to not being a Christian at ALL.

You are trafe.

Oh- and given that you know next to nothing about honesty, how can you check for that which you know so VERY little about?

PFFT.
