How attached are you to your deeply held beliefs? If solutions to global problems challenge your worldview, how do you react?
Not new to TED, just new to this conversation, I have watched the video and my question still stands. What I'm saying is it really depends on your perspective with regards to the comment you made. In many areas of the world consuming animal flesh is 100% necessary part of existence. For example His Holiness the Dali Lama becomes ill if he goes too long with out meat. It is not the consuming of animal flesh that is wrong, it is the manner in which it is done, with little or no reverence to the live given. I have a hard time with orthodox vegan thought. I think that it is fairly narrow minded in general. While it has it's place, so does the omnivore. If we can reintegrate the grass lands and nourish an entire population, I fail to see the "destruction" of life you speak of. All things are impermanent and everything serves a purpose. I could go on, but you get my point. Thank you.
