I've noticed some posts are nothing by personal insults rather than arguments. Even though I consider myself a 'learning' philosopher, it is important not to sink to the depths of insults and emotionalism. Though I do not agree with Sleepy on some issues, here is a link to an essay with some good health reasons for not eating meat.

Great, except only one of those quotes is cited from an actual person or site that the person has specified, therefore making the rest of them completely invalid. BTW I'm gonna search for that quote, it just doesn't sound very Einstein-ish to me.
I've just searched 3-4 quote sites . . . NONE of them have it.
BUT, I see a large amount of essays using the quote. =\ Sorta confuses me.

Personally, there is nothing wrong with being a vegetarian. One of my friends at home is a vegetarian and he seems healthy enough even though he goes through more crisp and biscuits then I do in one day. It's about a 4:1 ratio but anyway people may be vegetarians because of the many reasons stated, I'm not a vegetarian and I probably won't change but people do what they do because of something they believe or feel is immoraly werong and people who are likle that I admire because they can manage to stick to what they believe and that I find is very hard to do.

That's nice. You *DO* realize that this topic was last replied to on October 1st? Or that it existed to discuss whether there were convincing moral arguments for vegetarianism?
None of us particularly care that you're a vegetarian. Such really doesn't belong here unless you further include something relevant to the discussion, especially given you're reviving an old topic. You could, for example, claim you're a vegetarian, though you don't believe the moral arguments for it are convincing.
Please do not do such in the future.
