Vegan (alt.food.vegan) This newsgroup exists to share ideas and issues of concern among vegans. We are always happy to share our recipes- perhaps especially with omnivores who are simply curious- or even better, accomodating a vegan guest for a meal!

Default Why Be Vegetarian - by Dr. Stephen Knapp

Many portions of the Vedic literature describe how the
Supreme Being is the maintainer of innumerable living
entities, humans as well as the animals, and is alive in
the heart of every living being. Only those with
spiritual consciousness can see the same Supreme Being in
His expansion as Supersoul within every creature. To be
kind and spiritual toward humans and be a killer or enemy
toward animals is not a balanced philosophy, and exhibits
one's spiritual ignorance.

The next reason for being vegetarian is to consider the
amount of fear and suffering that animals experience in
the slaughter industry. There are countless stories of
how in fear cows cry, scream, and sometimes fall down
dead while inside or even before they are taken into the
slaughter house. Or how the veins of dead pigs are so big
that it shows they have practically exploded from the
fear the pig felt and the adrenalin that was produced
while it was being led to slaughter. This certainly
causes an immense amount of violence to permeate the
atmosphere, which goes out and falls back on us in some
form. Furthermore, the adrenalin and fear in the animal
also produces toxins which then permeate the body of
these animals, which meat-eaters ingest. People who
consume such things cannot help but be effected by it. It
causes tensions within them individually, which then
spreads in their relations with others.

The ancient Vedic text of the Manu-samhita (5.45-8) says,
"He who injures innoxious beings from a wish to give
himself pleasure never finds happiness, neither living
nor dead. He who does not seek to cause the suffering of
bonds and death to living creatures, but desires the good
of all beings, obtains endless bliss. . . Meat can never
be obtained without injury to living creatures, and
injury to sentient beings is detrimental to the
attainment of heavenly bliss; let him therefore shun the
use of meat."


Yeah, well, maybe you ought to learn just how cruel your religion really.

Sweet mother of ****. Those pictures are shocking beyond words.


I've never seen such callous cruelty, and if I hadn't seen those pictures of
all those grinning hindoos hacking at the necks and bodies of those hundreds
of thousands of peaceful, gentle young animals, I would find it difficult
to believe such horror exists in this world. Jai Maharaj goes to great
lengths portraying hindoos as being respectful toward animals but, as we can
see by those pictures in that article, they are evil and repulsive toward
them beyond belief. And just look at their grinning hindoo spectators
covering every branch of every tree, often crouched on top of each other
like bugs to get a better view; they're just as evil as the younger hindoo
barbarians carrying out the attacks.

Religion is shit. There are plenty of vile irrational belief systems,
but religion is among the worst.


I rejected the lies and all the manipulations that maintain religion when
merely a young boy still struggling to master the 7 times table, and I've
grown to detest it more and more ever since.

You might try a little balance in future? While that practice is to my
mind barbaric, it's not at all representative of Hinduism, and
perpetrated elsewhere (secular and religious) many fold.

Is that 'religion', or the people that use and/or believe in it?--

Many portions of the Vedic literature describe how the
Supreme Being is the maintainer of innumerable living
entities, humans as well as the animals, and is alive in
the heart of every living being. Only those with
spiritual consciousness can see the same Supreme Being in
His expansion as Supersoul within every creature. To be
kind and spiritual toward humans and be a killer or enemy
toward animals is not a balanced philosophy, and exhibits
one's spiritual ignorance.

The next reason for being vegetarian is to consider the
amount of fear and suffering that animals experience in
the slaughter industry. There are countless stories of
how in fear cows cry, scream, and sometimes fall down
dead while inside or even before they are taken into the
slaughter house. Or how the veins of dead pigs are so big
that it shows they have practically exploded from the
fear the pig felt and the adrenalin that was produced
while it was being led to slaughter. This certainly
causes an immense amount of violence to permeate the
atmosphere, which goes out and falls back on us in some
form. Furthermore, the adrenalin and fear in the animal
also produces toxins which then permeate the body of
these animals, which meat-eaters ingest. People who
consume such things cannot help but be effected by it. It
causes tensions within them individually, which then
spreads in their relations with others.

The ancient Vedic text of the Manu-samhita (5.45-8) says,
"He who injures innoxious beings from a wish to give
himself pleasure never finds happiness, neither living
nor dead. He who does not seek to cause the suffering of
bonds and death to living creatures, but desires the good
of all beings, obtains endless bliss. . . Meat can never
be obtained without injury to living creatures, and
injury to sentient beings is detrimental to the
attainment of heavenly bliss; let him therefore shun the
use of meat."

Yeah, well, maybe you ought to learn just how cruel your religion really.

Sweet mother of ****. Those pictures are shocking beyond words.

"The last time the festival was held, in 2009, more than 250,000 animals were
killed, according to animal rights organisation PETA"

I wonder if that's more dogs and cats than PeTA killed during the same time
period, Goob.

The source is irrelevant;


It was probably about the same then, eh Goo?

all that counts is if it's accurate.


What number would be acceptable to you Goober?

Religion is shit. There are plenty of vile irrational belief systems,
but religion is among the worst.

IF:
______________________________________________ ___________
"NO livestock benefit from being farmed." - Goo

"No farm animals benefit from farming." - Goo

"There is nothing to "appreciate" about the livestock "getting
to experience life" - Goo

""Getting to experience life" has no significance." - Goo

"It is not "better" in any moral way, and not in *any* way
at all to the animal itself, that the animal exists." - Goo

"There is no consideration whatever to be given to any animals' "getting to
experience life."" - Goo

"The "experiencing" of life is morally meaningless." - Goo

"Existence - "getting to experience life" - is not a benefit or advantage
to an entity, compared with never existing." - Goo

etc...etc...etc...
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
then what makes it vile and irrational when they lose their lives, Goo?

Those senselessly slaughtered animals


"Intent doesn't matter" - Goo

did not "benefit" by "getting to experience life."


You, Derek and Ru have no way of knowing what percentage of them did and
what percentage of them did not Goob. In fact none of you are even able to
consider the distinction, Goo.


We do know


Try to explain how any of you could possibly have found out about a single
one of their lives, Goo.

You, Derek and Ru


No one by the name "Ru".

have no way of knowing what percentage of them did and
what percentage of them did not


We do know: 0% "benefited" from "getting to experience life. "Getting
to experience life" is not a benefit - by definition.


Try to explain how any of you could possibly have found out


Done.
