But yeah, I've been known to eat them cold, too.

Whether or not we have incisors is actually moot. We're designed to be able to process meat and use it for energy. True herbivores can't process and utilize it for body fuel. That's the real difference between a natural herbivore and a human who has chosen the herbivore lifestyle.

If you've ever eaten steak tartare, you've eaten raw meat as well as raw egg. I actually prefer my steaks extremely rare, because I think overcooking them drains the flavor out of them.

Mmmm, rare steak. Yummy!

I kinda have a problem with this.. Im not a veg' but dont like to eat meat a whole lot because I don't like it... But the PETA "hate mail" wasn't hate mail.... And I think PETA does have the right intetions and maybe all you people should suggest to them doing more things for animals as someone else said instead of say how crazy and retarded PETA people are. Just sayin

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Ray, PETA wants to make the owning, breeding, and keeping of all animals illegal.

They want all domestic animals to die out, which means no horses, cats, dogs, and no meat animals, because they're domestic livestock.

PETA does nothing good. The money they collect is spent on themselves and their huge ad campaigns. There are no PETA animal shelters, rescues, or foster homes. Haven't any of their supporters ever wondered why?

So if you think they do some good, I'd like you to point out where and for whom. Except themselves, of course.

They're nothing but a terrorist group that is trying to take away our animals and make sure we never get any more.

According to PETA, we 'enslave' our animals and they'd be better off dead than in our lives, homes, and barns.

I don't see how any sane person could think PETA is a good organization.

I agree with most of you here. I eat some form of meat every day...sometimes 3 or more times a day. I'm like you SR, I haven't seen PETA do anything good. Protesting about fur coats? Maybe they could salvage at least some of the hides from the animals that are killed by the combines. That way they wouldn't be a total waste. Heck they even have snake skin accessories (boots). They could even salvage those. I highly doubt that any of them are going to leave their posh air conditioned offices to do this though.

As far as the website...I have laughed so hard that my face hurts. That's some funny stuff. I even emailed the links to my hubby and sister.

Honary "HFA" member...That's right, I'm admitting it!

BTW....That's NOT rain on your windshield!!!!

SR- wow they don't do any of that? I don't have any problem admitting im wrong sometimes. But if they don't do anything good why is the group (I guess thats what they would be called) still... alive? Wow my wording sucks today! :)

No actually they do have shelters but they put down more or less every animal that comes through their doors. I think one year only 7% of their animals were rehomed, the rest were killed. Someone posted some links on an older thread to statistics.

No Ray, they really don't. They're nothing but evil dressed up in shiny clothes.

They have a good ad campaign, which is what sucks in good hearted people who don't really know what their organization is all about.

The regular people who give money to PETA have been listening to their lies and propaganda, all dressed up pretty and sparkly in their ads.

PETA and its minions are terrorists, period. Stay far, far away from them if you value your animals.

Lis, neither PETA nor HSUS have or monetarily support shelters. ALL shelters are state funded by local SPCAs. If PETA had shelters, then they wouldn't need to use dumpsters behind other businesses to discard the dogs and cats they kill.

I'm sure someone posted a link to statistics about PETA's shelters. Might have wrong but I could have sworn I'd read it right. Either way PETA is still a waste of space and should be treated as a terrorism group.

Might not be a shelter but Zeke posted a link on the first page to statistics about animals taken in by PETA and their rehoming, killing or transferral percentages.

Heres something that a friend of mine told me that makes sense. "If we were not created to eat meat, why do we have incisors?"
Actually, all animals have incisors, canines and molars. The diet only dictates the size - cats/dogs have small useless incisors and massive canines for tearing meat, horses have massive incisors and tiny useless canines for eating grass, and humans have medium incisors and medium canines to support eating both.

It's already scientifically proven that being vegan without supplements will kill you. We CANNOT survive on cellulose alone - we require protein and fat, and a hell of a lot more then leafy greens can ever offer. If we can't survive on grass alone, then HOW exactly are we herbivores? It really speaks for itself.

No, we don't NEED meat to survive, but you do NEED a replacement then for the lost protein and fat. Our systems were completely designed to survive as omnivores and I just shake my head at anyone who can possibly try to preach differently. Vegetarianism is a choice, not the WAY we were intended to eat.
