    Yes, I guess it is important to starve 3.5 billion people in the world.

    The number of people who survive on rice, who are mostly in Asia.

    Because if we don't eat meat, that only leaves rice? I'm not sure what you're getting at but I'll leave you with this article:

    No, I was talking about leaving footprints about the environment.

    This is hilarious.

    You realise that, the few people who eat animal products and eat plant products instead, the more food there is. You keep jumping from one failed argument to another.

    To be very honest I don't really have the time to respond to you blabbering, because I am actually cooking a chicken curry right at this moment.

    In that case, stop presenting fiction as fact.

    In the case of the OP that makes no difference.
    Or did you think that money was spent on making males comfortable for the lulz?

    Oh but it is a fact!

    I haven't simply offered a rebuttal to your fiction, I've actually shown you an article outlining how it creates less food to eat meat from a reputable source.

    Saying 'it is fact' does not stop it from being fiction.

    And stop making inflammatory comments to troll me.

    Watch this documentary about eggs and chicks:



    Very interesting. Has it put you off eggs? The meat and dairy industries are awful. Think about where your food really comes from. Go Vegan for the animals! :woo:
    I still love eggs and chicken after watching that video :/

    Just came back from having my chicken curry dinner.

    Summarise it for me next time! No one has that much time on their hands when they have to cook meals for their families!

    Eating meat is unsustainable, as many people as possible (so, 99%+ of the population) should turn vegan.

    As for now it doesn't look unsustainable.

    That curry was very good. The extra tomatoes I added gave it a lot of flavor which complemented the meat.
    In regards to the above 2 statements.

    Stop trolling me.

    What is trolling? Is it a plant-based food product?

    I put a standard sized article up, you refuse to read it despite the fact that it contradicts claims you've made. You then re-present your fiction as fact. You are simply put, here to troll. I won't be responding to such posts again. You have not only lost composure, but also any whim of respectability. I am done with you.

    Edit: I was being neither illogical nor emotional.
    One may note that the post after this relies on a logical fallacy:
    Ad hominem.

    I only stopped bothering to argue with you because you were being far too emotional and illogical. But our conversation was indeed very pleasurable for me.

    PS: I don't care much for my composure or respectability, because this is the internet.

    I did, and I think that is just an unfortunate outcome which is however still necessary to feed a large population.
    Did you know that if we didn't waste the amount of grains we do feeding animals just so we can eat them and their products, we could eradicate world hunger? Yes people need to be fed, and the best way of doing that is by eating a plant based diet. Eggs are resource intensive and a luxury, not to mention unethical

    That is not true. Global hunger is caused due to an unequal distribution of food around the world. Ending the consumption of animals would not impact the distribution. Secondly, commercial farmers produce food for profit, and if there is no demand for plant-based animal feed (such as soya beans, of which around 75% are fed to animals) they will simply switch to the plant-based food which would give them the most profit - and this may actually result in less people being fed, given the nature of the farm land and other factors.
