I am reliably informed that quorn substitutes are actually quite good these days. I might give them a go to be honest; the older I get the more I think that killing animals for food is pretty pointless when meat-free substitutes can easily be obtained.

In 200 years or so, I reckon children of the future will look back on our generation like we do the cave men for structurally slaughtering creatures for food.

That said, I might grab myself a Big Mac on the way home from work.

People eat cattle. There are plenty of cattle.

People eat pigs. There are plenty of pigs.

People eat chickens. I think we all get my drift.

People don't eat Giant Pandas.

People don't eat white rhino's.

People don't eat tigers.

I think we all get my drift. 8)

There are far too many people in this world dying of starvation. I know it's academic but far more people would starve if the population became vegan. Not enough food to go around.

Actually there is enough food to feed us all. If we were to rely on a plant based diet there would be even more.

This is a very interesting debate, although certainly hypothetical. Given people are still starving in the world, even with the availbility of meat products reared in areas where plants cannot be commercially grown; although accept more areas can be converted to plant growing. The logistics of food distribution appears to be a major obstacle, and who knows by how much the population will increase and in what parts of the world.

Try reading Thomas Malthus. Actually read a shortened critique of his work. Whilst I and most others think he's wrong it does make an interesting starting point. I would then suggest Marx, not so much for the political point but rather his economic analysis. With which I agree. That is I agree to the extent that an unfettered capitalist system fails the community (100% agree) and will one day implode,(100% hope.)

Best,

Stan

Chwarae teg to you Norm . You do make me laugh. :lol: With so many accusations of mental health issues on this forum, it's good to be reminded that it can have a positive side sometimes as ably demonstrated by yourself.
