    My Vegetarian Phase

    When i was 13 maybe i started getting creeped out by meat, shuddered over the thought that the yolk dripping from my little brothers sandwich was a potential chicken with white feathers and so on. Smelled blood in meat, gave my pieces of chicken to little bro, my (cooked) egg...

    Not One Myself...

    But I married a vegetarian, so by default my consumption of animal products has greatly decreased. I really miss cooking with meats and poultry, though. I ask our siblings over for dinner just so I can have an excuse to grill some burgers or roast a chicken. Otherwise, it's just...

    What I Think About Being Vegatarian

    If you're easily offended I suggest you don't read this, because I will put my view and opinions into words and they're not liked by every one. Why do people refuse to eat meat? "Well, we don't want to kill living creatures, it's soooooo cruel and mean, I can't believe people do...

    I Tried

    I never liked meat much. I tried for a couple of years to live off of a vegetarian diet, but I felt physically weak and like I was always hungry. I guess some people's bodies can handle the lack and some can't. I can't.

    I Suppose I Could Be

    I eat a lot of vegetarian foods, like meatless hamburgers and hot dogs, but I like chicken, real chicken. I could be a vegetarian I just don't want to be. I think it's cool that some people have made the decision to be, but I don't like the ones who think everyone should be.

    When vegetarian say that they do not want to

    kill and eat living beings, they forget that they kill and eat live plants. Plants have their own life - they react, communicate and interact with their environment and with all of life.

    My Theory

    I have a theory about vegetarianism that keeps me from feeling bad for devouring animals. I call it the 'Like Life' theory. Like life is important to like life; therefore, the life of a cow is important to it and its fellow cows, but not to me or you. The life of a human is...

    It was proved by L Ron Hubbard in the late sixties but in truth man is not soppose to be 100% vegetarian. Not suppose to be 100% carnivore ether.  We are intended to be omivores and not carbivores like most of the 1st world countries.
