I was a vegan for a couple months, then I had to quit because my grocery bill was too high and I couldn't afford it.

Being a vegetarian shortens your life span. Humans are omnivorous by nature. The exact same goes for people who consume strictly meat. While yes, you can get some of your minerals found in meat from beans, nuts, and soy, many others are totally irreplaceable as they are found exclusively in red meat.

I respect your choice though, I lived vegetarian for a short period of time, mostly because it was cheaper. And I couldnt do it.

Same here. It makes me feel so much better about myself, both physically and morally.

It means they can eat dairy products(lacto) and eggs (ovo), but they abstain from anything else coming from an animal.

Personally, I think that vegetarianism in of itself is contradictory to human progress, but I won't judge those who practice it.

I think that the natural progression of natural evolution is the consumption of lesser(weaker) beings. In fact, the only way we gain energy is buy consuming living(or products of living) beings.

That being said, we shouldn't abuse those beings on which we rely. Neither should we inordinately kill.

Still, I see it as childish and silly to abstain from meat, when not only do we benefit, but the animal is spared a more gruesome, pointless death.

Who says we were arguing? I was just stating my beliefs. You know you don't have to agree/try to contradict me, right?
