Barry from Australia is a questioning soul who looks at social issues from an alternative point of view and instead of asking, “Why?”, he asks “Why not?” He’s convinced that many of his previous incarnations were spent in China. He feels drawn to the people there; attracted by their rich culture and way of life. If given one wish from God, he’d reply, “I want everyone on Earth to be the same colour, speak the same language, and treat each other as they themselves would like to be treated.”

by Barry1 @Barry1谢谢你,你是一个非常善良的人。任何有意义的运动或影响深远的行动,都必须从我们每一个人开始。非常希望我们这个世界变的越来越美好,人们生活的越来越幸福。我们在这里找寻我们一生挚爱的和值得爱的人,结伴同行,幸福终老。可是如果我们赖以生存的地球被我们这些无知的人类彻底毁坏掉了,那么我们的爱情幸福还从何谈起呢?我们常把大地比作母亲,真诚地希望我们生活在每一个地球上人,要像热爱母亲一样去爱护我们脚底下这块土地。身为地球人,我们有责任为这个世界进一点微薄之力,而且一点也不难,只要每天少往嘴里放一块肉就可以了。

Einstein's great work was done in his meat eating days. He became a vegetarian at age 75 and died age 76. Food for thought?

好样的姐妹们!关于肉食素食之争,我已懒得去讲去辩,只去做自己的。

其实周围的人虽然嘴上批评,但他们也不自觉地受我们的影响,吃饭时会照顾,多上素菜,有时候我们还会去素馆子聚聚餐。特别有一位女同事,和我吃过一次饭以后,再也不吃猪肉了,觉得肉腥气难闻,别的肉也吃得很少,哈哈,成功一点点也让我快乐。

"I reckon any person - either man or woman - who is so narrow minded or parochial that they would look down upon or criticise - a person for being an omnivore, is most likely a person best avoided."

It is interesting that you support terrible suffering and cruelty to intelligent mammals such as cows, pigs and sheep, Melcyan, as they're brutally herded together and butchered in the slaughterhouses.

I suppose you'd eat dogs too, if offered a dog steak?

If so, I request that you read my article re the above at:

Talking of Einstein, I was moved by his proud manner of death. Here's an excerpt taken from one of his bios:

On April 17, 1955, while working on a speech he was preparing to commemorate Israel's seventh anniversary, Einstein suffered an abdominal aortic aneurysm and experienced internal bleeding. He was taken to the University Medical Center at Princeton for treatment, but refused surgery, believing that he had lived his life and was content to accept his fate.

"I want to go when I want," he stated at the time. "It is tasteless to prolong life artificially. I have done my share, it is time to go. I will do it elegantly."

Einstein died at the university medical center early the next morning — April 18, 1955 — at the age of 76.

What a great man.

Thanks for your comments, HZDX6167.

I can only say again it would be interesting to compare a random group of say, one thousand vegetarians compared to the same number of non-vegetarians chosen randomly. I believe the members of the vegetarian group as a whole would be more compassionate, caring and kind than the non-vegetarians.

But yet we should not dwell on this, because one of the fundamental principles of Buddhism is that of being non-judgemental.

I concur though that it's hard to stand back and watch the cruelty associated with millions of hapless animals being butchered in the slaughterhouses, yet at the same time, each to his own.

If some people support such actions,, then so be it. We should continue however, to speak our truths quietly, otherwise we run the risk of turning people away.

Well done, HZDX6167. Better times are ahead for all of us, I'm sure. (y)

@loveF 楼上的姐妹好,我的那个《“呵呵,你我都不是当时的见证人,所以。。》是为了你上面那位先生的《Einstein's great work was done in his meat eating days. He became a vegetarian at age 75 and died age 76. Food for thought?
English 翻译成中文
在他吃肉的日子里进行了爱因斯坦的伟大工作。他在 75 岁时成为一个素食主义者,死 76 岁。精神食粮吗?》而答复的,请你见谅。

Barry,my fellow omnivore (a fish eater is either an omnivore or a carnivore) , you misunderstood my point. Maybe deliberately???

"I reckon any person - either man or woman - who is so narrow minded or parochial that they would look down upon or criticise - a person for being a vegetarian, is most likely a person best avoided."

These are your words given in reply to loveF.

I merely changed one word "vegetarian" to the word "omnivore" (this word includes both you and me and most CLM members) and repeated them.

Whether the word is "vegetarian","omnivore" or "vegan", I agree with the statement in question.

Thanks for your comments, Melcyan.

I think the herding together and butchering of cows, sheep and pigs is a terrible practice.

I do not make jokes about this nor try to score points with supposedly clever plays on words. It's too serious a topic to do this.

If you don't believe me, visit a slaughterhouse someone and listen to the screams of the animals as they're being herded and butchered. If you can't do this, then go onto YouTube and type in words to the effect of animal slaughter in abattoir. Watch closely what happens. Disgusting cruelty, in my view.
