Why is that liberals are more likely to be vegetarian?
Sep 11, 2016
Where vegetarianism is a split party issue, people who use coercion and threats to either bend you to their point of view or destroy your livelihood, are usually dietarly outspoken and polar political.

sensitivity to cruelty and ineffectual knee response. it is stage one of being More Pure Than Thou
Liberal guilt and the false assumption that finding something to be superior about will change how things work.
Well as a liberal and a critical thinker I don’t see the two connected. But any atheist worth their salt should only do things that are rationally justified, however I have yet to hear a rational justification for eating meat. On the contrary most of the time I debate meat eaters it is like debating a Christian
yes and being able to use more food sources, meat protein, allowed our brains to evolve and we mastered fired to cook it and render that and other foods safe and eatable.
how again is this related to rationality? You are all making attempts to use biology to justify eating meat. I thought the rational brain is what separates us from the other animals on the planet?
how are you not understanding that rationality arises from reality and understanding that? your resistance is cognitive dissonance and you are transfering to me rather than the words or the exchange.
I thought that was the end of it, but today – September 21, 2016:
emotionally clinging to your position, ignoring facts as they exist and are agreed upon by others.. it’s so textbook that I almost blogged this post.
You are talking about past actions regarding cooking. I am talking about rational justifications. If you can’t provide any then just be honest enough to say so.
well, being the butt of the joke, especially as others are clearly getting it or are openly in on it, is a difficult place. so you have to respect that journey to the punchline finish.
Also vegans play more pure than thou vs vegetarians. it’s the closer the degree the higher the disgust factor.
I’ll stand with my wife on this…she eats a diet based on (deleted) regime, and at 55 has the figure and health of an athletic woman 25 plus years her junior….and still rocks a bloody bikini…or less…on the beaches in summer
the article is unscientific and cherry picks data from journals about the problems of too many carbs. Can anyone please present a rational argument in favor of eating meat?
That is shifting the burden of proof. It is like saying do you have evidence that God doesn’t exist?
If you want reasons then sure. We don’t need meat for protein. We can get it from plants without the negative side effects like high blood pressure and stroke. Eating plants has less impact on the environment regarding co2 and water. It is irrational to use an inefficient system when a more efficient one exists.
That is a naturalistic and traditional fallacy. It is like saying slavery was part of our society then we should do it today.
One of the greatest atheists Sam Harris presented these arguments much better than I can. If you care about truth I recommend checking out his video
if a rapist said they enjoyed it would you regard that as a rational justification? Btw I’m just using that as an example before anyone looses their mind
non-proportional examples, strawmen and appeals to authority… classic classic classic
