Honestly? It's because you're self-righteous assholes about it.

Nobody's ever walked up to me and handed me a flyer telling me I'm a piece of shit for not eating meat, and that if I don't eat a steak right now I might as well be Hitler. The closest I've ever had to that is "Hey, want a burger? No? Okay."

You're fucking assholes, and even if I hated meat I'd eat it to spite you at this point.

I'm not vegan like the OP, but I've found meat eater to be just as aggressive. If I order a non-meat dish, I get accusatory stares asking me to justify why I'm not eating meat. It's none of their business either way but it's definitely not just vegans who do this.

I'm about half-sure that you're a falseflagging vegan, and I'm not that guy, but I've simply never had any kind of experience even remotely like that. It probably varies with the cultural leanings from area to area, but I've never once been alienated or stigmatized for ordering a tofu or veggie option, and I eat plenty of meat.

I think the entire "debate" is fucking stupid, and I don't think either "side" is ever going to give up their preferred position, but I don't think these kinds of reactions are realistic at all, unless maybe you committed a massive faux pas for the culture or the region. I.E. asking for a vegetarian option at an average Texan barbecue.

Every single flyer I've ever been handed about the evils of the meat industry used terrible citations and made up half the "facts" they were trying to spread, when there's loads of perfectly valid criticisms you can level at "meat eaters" about how immoral/unhealthy/buzzwordy their diets are.

Even here, we're sitting here having this stupid excuse for a discussion because some faggot posted some low quality bait image and a regurgitated prompt OP to rile people up and get cheap (you)s. That's what the entire fucking controversy is. A handful of people started doing some shit, and some of them decided it made them superior in some way, and started to fling shit, and now the majority of the western world is going to spend the next several decades talking about what the "best" diet is as though such a thing exists and every single option for feeding our massive population isn't somehow shitting on the global ecosystem.

I think the world would be a much nicer place if we grew a little bit of sage in every field.
>>
>>9273780

Omega-3 sources: Flax seeds. Chia seeds. Hemp seeds. Seaweed. Mustard oil. Beans. Leafy greens. Winter squash. Berries. Cabbage. Wild rice. Mangoes. Honeydew melon.

Creatine is absolutely non-essential for a healthy diet.

If you think we can't get vitamins A, D, and E from plants I'm really at a loss for words. "Proper" means absolutely nothing. Either it is, or isn't.

>Omega 3's are found in plants, but often they're accompanied by even higher levels of Omega 6, meaning they aren't particularly useful for supplementation. There is one plant-based source with high Omega 3's and low-Omega 6's (flax seeds). The problem is that there are several different types of Omega 3's and the form found in flax seeds (ALA) must be converted by the body into the different forms (DHA and EPA) before it can be utilized. The body is very inefficient at doing this conversion. Studies have shown that only around 2-3% of the ALA you eat will get converted to DHA and EPA. This means you'll have to eat somewhere around 40 grams of flax oil for your body to get 1g of usable Omega 3's. While it is possible to consume enough flax oil to get adequate Omega 3's, it is so much less efficient than eating krill or fish oil it seems silly. Since the Omega 3's in krill and fish are already in the form of DHA and EPA, they are far more efficient sources.

>Vitamin A is not the only nutrient that plants do a poor job at providing. Other fat-soluble vitamins (D and E) are difficult to get in adequate levels from plant foods. Vitamin E is available in oil as avegetarian supplement. Vitamin D, however, is almost always found in dry form as a vegetarian supplement. When consumed in dry form, most of the vitamin will pass through the digestive system unabsorbed. The best vitamin D supplements come from fish oil sources.

>Recently, vegetarian oil-based vitamin D supplements have become available (derived from lichen). They're quite expensive and hard to find, and I'm hesitant to endorse them until I see more research on absorption and chemical analysis. Fish-oil based sources remain your best bet.

What was that about this stuff being found "in abundance" in plants? Don't even get me started about short-chain fats

http://www.fitday.com/fitness-articles/nutrition/healthy-eating/6-health-benefits-of-milk.html

Milk helps prevent osteoporosis and contains large amounts of protein and helps the body have stronger teeth and muscles. It is also able to lower blood pressure and increase vitamin A and B levels.

http://www.livestrong.com/article/407839-the-health-benefits-of-eating-red-meat/

Eating a small serving of red meat allows better tissue repair, better iron that is much more easily absorbed than plant based foods, give weight lose with the protein provided making you feel full, strengthens your immune system thanks to zinc....

While there are awesome benefits...I'd say it's just to have milk or red meat in moderation. I don't eat red meat all the time but drink milk regularly. My cholesterol is low and I'm an overall very healthy weight.

I'm positive the bitch literally doesn't know what gluten is.

I have a friend who's mostly vegan, but I didn't know it for years. You know why? If he goes to a party that doesn't serve vegan food he either brings his own food or he just eats what's provided and doesn't make a big fuss. Yes that means that once in a blue moon he'll eat a hot dog or something, but thankfully this means I've never seen him make a big deal about his beliefs to the point where it made a host uncomfortable.

They are nothing alike. One is eating meat to avoid being seen as weird, while claiming to be vegan. The other STOPPING being vegetarian because of biblical reasons.

I didn't care about people thinking I was weird. I once remember someone offering me a mint, and I refused and said I'm vegetarian. He looked at me like I was retarded, so I explained that they contained gelatin. I didn't care.

Sorry, project more I guess.

Humans are inventing lab grown meat and will be the first organisms on this earth to stop mass consuming animals in order to propagate themselves. At that point, animals will be in our debt to our comparitively infinite mercy.

Until then, I'm eating meat just like they are. Animals eat other animals and their concerns can fuck off since i'm the only species good enough to break that cycle of suffering that applies to literally every other organism except for humans. Oh wait, animals don't have concerns, it's just other fucking humans getting upset on their behalf, because humans are the only species that's able to give a shit enough to do anything.

If you don't care about others thinking you're weird then why did you say that you eat meat otherwise others will find you weird?

I'm an older vegan and most 20-something vegans are pussies. Who gives a fuck what other people think about you and what you eat. If they ask you why you are vegan, feel free to tell them, otherwise shut the fuck up holy shit.
Most people don't even care. Every conversation I've had with my family/friends over the years have been
>Why aren't you eating the burgers we made?
>Vegan, don't want to.
>Oh, okay cool.

Yeah, I'd like everyone to be vegan, but it's not going to happen, and that's okay. People will be more open about talking about veganism if you aren't a pretentious fuck and try to convert people like it's a cult or a pyramid scheme.

>>9273663

Because so many of the crops that go into vegan food (soy, palm oil etc.) Are equelly damaging to the planet. Serial vegans want every animal to live but don't realise that we have to plant more crops and destroy more wild lands to keep up e it the demand I'd everyone suddenly went vegan.

I've also never heard a vegan explain what would happen to all the livestock of the world if they got their way. People keep animals because they are usefull, as soon as you take the use away from cows and chickens and pigs we will have to dispose of them.

I think any movement starts out very dramatically with people who are both very sure of their beliefs and not tactful about spreading them. Once the movement gets mainstream acknowledgement but not acceptance the tack should shift to being more comfortable in your skin and less fanatical. I think veganism went past the point where this should'be happened but didn't change tack. This, along with Atkins getting a shot in the arm in the form of keto has stopped any growth in terms of sentiment.

Vegetarianism would also work, granted it entailed an overall massive reduction in animal products. It would be pointless if it simply meant that for every meat farm, we replace it with an egg or dairy farm.

It's a matter of moderation for the sake of restoring balance to the earth's natural cycles. Dietary choices are only one factor in this process. Simply killing half the human population would also work.

because these people haven't done the math for how much water it would take if everyone went vegan.

one cow will feed many. an animal, to include organs, can provide complete nutrition. how much acreage, how many gallons of water, how much money would it take to feed the vegan population if it even doubled? tripled?

are vegans even aware that they're being extremely disingenuous w/ infographics like this or...

also, it would kill a lot of brown people. there are tons of brown "vegans" in africa and haiti who only break their perfect diet of grass and dirt to eat each other.

You have done zero research, you obviously know nothing. Entropy is the law of the universe. Every time you convert enrgy from one form to another, you lose some energy permanently as heat or other waste products. This simple law is the basis of all vegan arguments for resource conservation. Light becomes plants, entropy occurs. Plants become meat, eggs or dairy, entropy occurs. The end result is that it takes far more resources to produce animal products than it takes to produce plant-based food. I hope I cleared things up for you, now please stop spreading your ignorance.

I'm vegan, I don't preach ethics and dehumanize people but I do tell people that I don't consume animal products if we go out to eat.

Recently switched to a predominantly plant based diet. It's nice. The food cravings went away after the painful first few days and now, apart from my bean-fart addled intestines, I actually feel pretty good. I still eat meat and some junk (i love donuts) but I don't eat as much of those items. Say what you will about environmental consciousness, but it's undeniable that raising a cow to eat is way less cost effective than simply eating veggies. American's need to cut down on big macs and save the planet, as do the rest of the first world.

The feeling of shitness after eating a meat-containing meal is more than likely to be the result of eating a shitton of potatoes, rice, french fries, bread, and other carbs.

Try eating just a steak, no other bullshit. You do not get bloated, you do not have an insulin spike nor subsequent crash. You just feel satisfied.

The problem is not meat, it is the grains and starches that these places over-consume.

All solved by the natural mechanisms of a cow. It automatically concentrates the plant matter into a substance that is easier to transport, more nutritionally dense, and demands less on your body to digest. When properly managed, grass-fed and pastured animals subsist on the natural grasses, re-fertilize the land, and increase the biodiverity of an area. Destroying the land with industrial fertilizers to plant massive acres of corn and wheat completely FUCK the environment for generations.

That being said, nobody should be eating grain-fed, feedlot-raised meat and it is terrible both for your health and the environment.

You severely underestimate the impact which animal herding has on land. Look at communities across the world where animal herding is the norm and you will see that there is a crisis. The topsoil becomes compacted and depleted because of grazing, and the effects can take decades to reverse. So now they need new land to graze on, and the cycle repeats. I think grazing animals have their place, because fundamentally they have evolved to fit into balanced ecosystems. But as soon as humans start tipping this balance and trying to take control of these herds and expand their influence, the land suffers. By your logic, we should only eat grazing animals which have been hunted from the wild. Like always, humans would take too much and extinct the species they hunt, so we farm instead, to the detriment of other species. The idea that grazing herds increase the biodiversity of an area is laughable.

Your point about modern crop farming practices is correct though. Raping the land with petrochemical fertilisers is not a good alternative.

It does show that. What we really need to know is the resulting food-energy and nutrients which each side provides. Veganism is only supported by this data if the food-energy and nutrients supplied by the overall production of plants is higher than that supplied by the production of animal products. I'm not going to the effort of finding this data, but it's seems agreed on that even if plants are less nutrient dense than meat by weight, the sheer bulk produced makes up for this.

I never said that. I was simply refuting the "veganism will literally save the planet" argument. Even if everyone went vegan we'd still have problems like plastic waste in the ocean, climate change, pollution from factories and cars, crop diseases and animal extinctions, etc. So to act like veganism will LITERALLY FIX EVERYTHING is holding too high an opinion of yourself and your dietary choices which only makes actually dealing with other issues harder. If you want to save the planet support technologies that can help keep it healthy instead of acting like you're better than everyone else because you buy plants instead of meat at the grocery store.

No, in Eden they were to eat fruit and herbs and stuff. I don't know if they ate meat, but they might have. Here, look;

Genesis 3:21
Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them.

Notice, Lord Jesus (in Eden) gave them nice clothes to wear outside Eden. Skins implies animals.

I believe that Lord Jesus might have killed 2 animals to take their skins for the coat, maybe to atone for their sin before they left. The thing about death is that it's not a good thing, God is going to destroy it and I don't know how much it existed in Eden before they left it.

No, I don't know where you get this nonsense from.

The new covenant was sprinkled with the blood of Lord Jesus. In the O.T. clean animal blood was sprinkled on the testimony and all the people witnessed it, and understood that it was legally binding. The N.T. was the same except animal blood can't take away sin, but Lord Jesus can. His blood was shed for the covenant.

He's coming back as a king to collect His people, and then to rule.

Why did He share this?

Luke 19:
26 For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.
27 But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.

>Jews sneak war-mongering passages into the official document of the human organisation of the church
What?

Nobody can change the bible. Use the KJV it's a reliable translation. People who want money or want to deceive can only make alternate translations of it, that's why there's so many bible versions.

Nobody has power over the word of God.

>blind obedience
Should I be disobedient to God?

You're under attack by Satan. It's spirit of disobedience is blinding you.

Look for truth.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+1&version=KJV

Matthew 7:
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Your goodness isn't genuine. You're just following orders with the hope of reward.

Jesus would roll in his grave if he saw what his legacy had become. The kingdom of heaven lies within, waiting for the key of the heart. You would know this had you not been blinded by false institutions.

>the Old Testament says nonstop that the Jews are god's chosen people
It doesn't. Judah was 1 of 12 children of Israel. Abraham, Isaac and Israel (the person known as Jacob) were not Jews. The tribe of Asher are Israelites, but not Jewish.

The whole 'muh chosen people' thing is a deception. Imagine if you had 11 siblings, and 1 of them was a whining histrionic moneygrubber who went around saying he was an only child and telling people to ignore anyone else who claimed they were children of your parents.

There's a group of people which God says aren't Jews but they claim they are. That's why there's so much confusion regarding biblical identities. People pretending, perhaps it's the Ashkenazi or the blood-sucking, money-grubbing murderers in funny black coats and furry hats? I don't know, only God does. It's best not to lean on our own understanding but God's word. Let God be the judge.

>>9276834
You're following Satanic doctrine and it doesn't lead to life. Maybe if I had a couple of hours to sit down and talk to you over a few beers I might be able to explain and talk some sense in to you. But I doubt it, only God can free you. No matter how much you get proven wrong you simply shift the goal posts and try a new angle of attack. You've already made your mind up, you need to put the search for truth higher than anything in your life so you find it. Don't get distracted.

>>9273663

I'm no expert on the subject, but isn't going to the extremes in either direction a bad thing?

I mean if we moved to being a lot more vegan-based culture we'd quickly run into problems with food production. But obviously current methods of meat farming leave something to be desired.

I guess I wish people would have more the outlook of these guys, >>9275142 >>9274946 people who aren't using vegan/vegetarianism as a means to lord their higher moral standpoint over others but just simply think it's the better choice.

Your definition of love is not perfect or complete. God is love. But God killed hundreds of thousands of gentiles who attacked His children. Is that loving? Yes. Wouldn't you kill someone attacking your kids? I would. There are things in this world which I shouldn't have love or compassion for. One of them is Satan. It would greatly displease God to want mercy for it. In Genesis, it was cursed to be below every beast of the field, and to eat dust. It's lower than shit. It's not a king and it doesn't rule in hell. It's not going to be saved, it doesn't care about anyone. It blasphemes against God all day and night, and its helpers get as many people as possible to turn away from God so they will be killed.

The people who God killed were absolutely abominable. Imagine walking outside one day and seeing a bunch of people cutting themselves and smearing themselves with the blood and their own shit and chanting and being possessed. Don't pretend like the people who were killed in the O.T. were somehow nice or clean. Or those sodomites who got burned so bad the rocks they built their homes from changed their chemical composition and now flake away like biscuits, lmao.

God tells us how to be loving, it doesn't involve performing sodomite wedding ceremonies, putting rainbow stickers on your car or drinking blood so gentiles don't think you're weird.

Look at this guy.

So if the world went vegan there would quickly be rampant starvation and probably the euthanizing of millions of animals. Whenever I see vegans asked about this they almost always reply with something along the lines of "yeah well I don't care if a bunch of humans die."

I guess my question is, do some people just really not give a shit about human life or is it a way to deflect a rather serious question with humor?

yeah anon what to do with the billions of animals that were bred for our tastebuds. ideally you let them live a stress free existence, but as the meat industry has shown, that's near impossible. it's a pragmatic issue that says absolutely nothing, these things get killed daily and you don't give a shit. why do you suddenly care about the last generationof animals if the world were to go fully vegan?

I was about to argue how the Californian meat and dairy industry is just so much bigger, producing way more calories, but

>Californian beef and dairy industry produces 18 million tons of milk and 1 million tons of beef per year

That would be 10 Tcal for the milk and 2.1 Tcal for the beef. So about 12.1 Tcal for 47% of California's water.

>Californian almond industry produces 1.6 million tons of almonds per year

That would be about 8.6 Tcal for 10% of California's water.

So yeah, by produced calory of energy, almonds require WAY less water and probably also space. Man, almonds are calorically dense.
>>
>>9273739

The comparisons of water wasted to produce plants vs to produce meat is done by volume only. In terms of calories per gallon of water, there are many, MANY more plants that cannot compete with the caloric density of meat. In fact most plants that aren't leafy greens are more wasteful than meat when it comes to calories per gallon.
>>
>>9273739
if we replaced every animal pasture with plant based farms and stopped using animal products you would ruin the soil everywhere, as fish is a big source of fertilizer that commercial farms use, peat moss use would have to rise a lot too to compensate and if we start using too much of that it becomes unsustainable and we end up killing big carbon sinks and fertilizer sources

B12, you have to supplement as a vegan. Same with calcium. Sure you could eat 60 to 100 oz of mushrooms daily or eat your own shit for b12 but I don't think you'll sway anyone to veganism that way.

You severely underestimate the impact of industrial farms on the land as well. Also I pointed out that animal pasturing needs to be done intelligently, is a benefit to the land. Communities across the world are not doing this, by and large.

And grazing definitely increases biodiversity. To think that an increase in biodiversity results from repurposing vast swaths of natural landscape to grain fields, wherein farmers specifically seek out foreign plans and animals to remove and kill them, is asinine.

If you can get hold of this, consider trying it. Even 1 tin.

Even as a meat eater I love this stuff in curry. I can't get enough of it. I mix it with curry paste and water to make it thick and put it with noodles, it tastes insanely good. I can eat 2 tins of it, not even joking.

But does that mean a vegan world? That’s one solution, but not necessarily the only one. If it is the infliction of suffering that we are concerned about, rather than killing, then I can also imagine a world in which people mostly eat plant foods, but occasionally treat themselves to the luxury of free range eggs, or possibly even meat from animals who live good lives under conditions natural for their species, and are then humanely killed on the farm.
