"Aren't we carnivores?

Our anatomy, physiology, biochemistry and psychology all indicate that we are not carnivores... We do not salivate at the idea of crushing the life out of a rabbit with our bare hands and teeth, and the thought of eating one in a freshly killed state is repulsive. We certainly do not enjoy chewing on bones, gristle, entrails, chunks of raw fat and flesh, and the hair and vermin that inevitably accompany them. We cannot imagine slurping hot blood, getting it all over our faces, hands and bodies. These behaviours are alien to our natural disposition and are actually sickening." -
Dr. Doug Graham

Quotation Reporter: "Mr Gandhi, what do you think of Western Civilisation?"
Mr Gandhi: "I think it would be a good idea."

"If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?" Albert Einstein

The thinking man must oppose all cruel customs no matter how deeply rooted in tradition and surrounded by a halo. When we have a choice, we must avoid bringing torment and injury into the life of another, even the lowliest creature; to do so is to renounce our manhood and shoulder a guilt which nothing justifies.
~ Albert Schweitzer
