It's very simple.


If God didn't want us to eat animals, he would have not made them taste so good.

One thing I do agree with is humans should not make animals suffer needlessly. I try to avoid "factory farmed" products for that reason - also, people who mistreat animals are more likely to mistreat people.

Because squash is not very tasty.
Fool of a Took!

Not quite sure why I took that tack, I just disagree strongly. In about six weeks I'll be planting enough squash to last me through the summer if I am lucky.

But I have an on-again/off-again relationship with vegetarianism, so I may have invested more time in finding ways to make things tasty. Fresh squash sauteed in olive oil with zucchini and a little salt can turn a bad day around at lunch.

You can literally use spaghetti squash as spaghetti.

Fantastic.

Unfortunately, though, you can't play squash with spaghetti.

I am subtracting points from this thread because the subtitle was not: "The Electric Boogaloo" nor a reference thereof ("The Carnivorous Boogaloo" would have been acceptable). The fact that the OP is only 18 is not an excuse, just a sad fact as to the further deterioration of the American educational system and its neglect for the classics.

you say I'm a deterioration of The American Educational system, however you fail to prove it. you need proof to make a claim valid, and I'm just the 18 from the failed American educational system, who knew?!

Looks like proof enough to me that SBC shows us just how much the American education system has failed us.

Have you ever heard of "quit while you are ahead"?

Again, you could debate an unbeliever all day long, until the cows come home; and at the end of the day, it profits nothing. Not that debating is wrong; but you kind of came here in full launch attack mode, and then got so upset when people told you to knock it off.
