This does not address the question about eating meat. BTW there are atheists who don't eat meat. I imagine that they don't care what God thinks about it.

I don't believe in GOD, nor do I eat meat. I don't eat meat because it causes many chronic problems and with the abundance of plant food these days, I don't need to eat meat to survive. Just look at the studies which have shown many 7th Day Adventist live longer lifes then the rest of society... they follow a vegetarian diet. There is a ton of information out there which shows that not only is meat not needed for our bodies, but eating as much as most Americans do causes chronic problems later in life. Cancer, heart disease, obesity... I firmly believe that if our society was vegetarian, we would see a huge decrease in these things.

I know the bible and it is never clear because it contradicts itself all the time. You honor God by not eating his or her creatures.

Great commentary. All animals are equal. If you proclaim yourself as an animal lover you cannot possibly eat them. If you would not eat a cat or dog but other animals, then you are a pet lover. I think of all animals as my friends and love them all and I don't eat my friends and God has nothing to do with it.

In addition to health benefits being a vegetarian makes for a kinder, gentler world. That's what it's all about for me.
I believe in God but it doesn't really matter because it's about a better life for animals and people.

What about the part of Daniel where those who refused to eat meat were the only ones who thrived?

Kosher rules about slaughter were intended to protect the animals from unnecessary suffering. Compare a natural life and quick death to the living hell of a factory farm. "To him who knoweth to do good and doeth it not, to him it is sin." Does anyone really support factory farming as an ethical means of food production? Meat eaters aren't bad people; most of my meat-eating friends acknowledge the imperfections but can't imagine life without meat. As more people eat less meat, more people will be exposed to this style of eating and be able to make an informed choice without infringing on anyone's ability to choose. I have cookbooks from the 1950s and 1960s with foods we wouldn't eat now, even if we could find them. (Tripe, anyone)? Preparation methods were often unhealthy or outright dangerous (buttering a well-marbled steak may make it taste better, but ... ) Given more information, people's habits change over time and this is just one more example.

Well, unlike so many humans proclaiming they KNOW what God's desires and wants are, apparently due to those HUMANS direct line to God's mind it is I who truly knows God's desires since I proclaim it so and, for free, without begging for your wealth, hereby proclaim to all with faith and the eyes to read hereby in a most HOLY MANNER proclaim for thee to shovel as much dead critter food into your gaping maw but ensure you chew thoroughly and follow basic sanitary standards to avoid food poisoning and practice moderation in everything since you do not want to be a glutton nor become a HUGE tub o' lard for many reasons.


That's the HOLY WORD from the BIG GUY himself and since there is NO WAY to prove nor disprove my message (just like the many other HUMANS proclaiming it is THEY who have a direct line to God) you might as believe mine because my proclamation is free!!!!!!

Unless you believe you get what you pay for thus believe the "Word" from others who want your wealth for hearing their unprovable "Word from God" is likely more believable since it costs money for their "Word" then go ahead, listen to them.

Hallelujah, brethren.

And a couple gratis Hallelujahs.

Oh heck... here's a complimentary Hosanna.

Let your conscience be your guide. Mine tells me not to eat anything that has to be killed first. It suits me just fine. I don't think God minds if you eat meat or not. Everyone who reads the bible has their own interpretation. It's up to the individual.
