I saw a special on PBS about evolution where they said just that. The groups that learned to hunt and eat meat evolved faster than the groups that did not.

SR- your right, but what I was thinking as they are smart because the can live by themselves, they can find food and water by themselves, detect predators, not like people... a lot of people don't know what a lot of different foods are even if they are at the G store, and a lot of people would be scared of animals but don't know how to re-act to them.. meaning some people are scared of horses because they are soo big.

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

And maybe I'm just dumber than my horses! LOL :)

I was watching CSI and this one crazy murder..er? killed some girl, chopped off her head and mounted it on his wall and then fed the body to his pigs (he was a pig farmer) I'm not sure if that would actually happen but it still grossed me out..

First, Speed Racer, I quoted you in my signature, I hope you don't mind. I'll remove it if you do. =]

Second, I can easily see pigs eating meat. I don't know why, it just makes sense to me, since they can get so vicious. They don't have as high a flight drive as a horse does. But then I think of bears, who live primarily on plants and berries. It just strikes me as funny.

While there is a very strong factual base behind his argument, his form of writing is appalling. If he wants to be taken more seriously, especially by the vegan/vegetarian community, he should write like it. I don't know what he's trying to accomplish exactly, but to me it just seems like he's blowing off questionable steam (why so ****ed? There are better things to be irritated about) rather than present something more purposeful and sound of mind. Facts are the strongest argument, throwing around offensive words only makes the writer seem immature.

Another essential flaw. I can't tell whether he's attacking vegetarians/vegans, PETA, or both. Not all PETA members are vegetarian/vegan and not all vegetarians/vegans are PETA members.

Pigs will eat just about anything. Each other, rodents that are stupid enough to go into their pens, etc.

Im not for PETA but I dont eat Cow meat any more. I was raised on a Dairy Farm and I know what and how some people treat there cows. Daddy never mistreated ours but I know farmers that will have a cow down cause she splits in the barn and they just let them sit out in the hot summer sun and starve to death. The after a month of letting her sit there he will shoot her. Makes no since. I have also seen were they kill baby calves for veil meat and before they kill them they torture them first just because its funny to them.! I personaly dont think tortureing any animal before it dies is funny!!! You either shoot it or you dont!
I have also seen were they torture Dairy Cows while there milking them! So personally I DONT like IT!! It doesnt mean Im PETA but some of the things they do does help!
Im in the middle with them.
