    Quick question and you don't have to answer it, I'll understand. Are you a total vegan?

    No it does not. It says nothing is conclusive yet, but if you actually read the article you would see some entomologists disagree. Either way they think it is possible and most likely.

    So again ...

    Only the cute fuzzy ones? What about fish? They feel pain and some like Manta's etc are very smart. What about lower mammals and reptiles...

    Or only the cute fuzzy ones?

    Yes thats a realistic goal from a fringe group of lunatics. Seriously, that is never going to happen, period.

    Yeah, people had your line of thinking for many things this country has done, and we've managed to do them.

    What line of thinking would that be? Humans are omnivores, and we eat meat and plants. We are not going to give up our meat supply because a few yokels feel bad about it.

    Rats are cute and fuzzy. They are mammals. You have still not answered my question.

    The line of thinking that something would never change and something being an "unrealistic goal"
    Yes, we are omnivores, but we are perfectly capable of going without meat. I never said we need to give up our meat supply, we have alternatives, and we could just cut back.

    By the way I just got a chuckle when I thought of this thread and your "free range" children thread. Ironic no?
