I deliberately avoid being preachy about vegetarianism but occasionally there comes an opportunity where comment is really deserved.
In an almost deliberately controversial tone which neatly summarises her distinct lack of knowledge of the topic, Sarah Palin has apparently written in her new book:
“If any vegans came over for dinner, I could whip them up a salad, then explain my philosophy on being a carnivore: If God had not intended for us to eat animals, how come He made them out of meat?”
a) God. Good start.
b) What type of moronic argument is that? Are you genuinely saying we should eat something simply because it exists?
God created humans. Humans, as animals, are also made out of meat. I don’t think that means
paedophiles cannibals should eat children.
The religious link does, however, provide an opportune moment to highlight Robin Ince’s talk on Creationism.
