    I think what I was trying to convey is that I hate when people push their ideas with "scare tactics".

    I'm well aware of what the meat industry....(lol....meat industry) has done to animals. However I need more than just a video that offers nothing but gore, like when were those videos taken? where were they taken? what country was it filmed in...i mean, these are some simple things that may be culturally different.

    to me, those vids look like they were taken from the sixties...

    I think it is good to question the facts, such as when and where the videos were taken. I believe but don't quote me that it was during the mid 90's. I will have to check into that.

    PETA was not created until the 80's and this video is by PETA, they could use old footage but since it is their investigation I am assuming it was probably done sometime after the mid 80's.

    I will have to fact check on this one.

    Slayer: thought-provoking post. Thank you.

    First, as for eating humans, I admit I draw a very hard line there, along the lines of "Nature abhors a cannibal." There are not many species that will eat members of their own species, and I think probably for decent evolutionary reason. Plenty of animals eat other animals. It's a very crisp line, unlike the vegetarian vs. omnivore line, and it's as crisp in all of nature as in human society.

    As for eating 30-40 animals a year, I think that's obviously not talking about cows. Consider that there are 50 weeks in the year. Nobody I know eats an entire cow every week or two. That's preposterous, just by casual inspection.

    Now, 30-40 quail a year? I wouldn't find that shocking at all (except that quail are uncommon - I mean in terms of size.) I could eat 30-40 quail in a month. icon_smile.gif

    It is said that the average vegan saves 100+ animals a year by choosing compassion over cruelty.

    Don't ask me to calculate I have no clue how they came up with the number, it could be wrong.
