    Debating with vegans, need help! :)

    Hi!

    I have a lot of trouble with what to say to vegetarians/vegans when they are showing of some research as if it's their own.

    The latest is this: Eliminating the #1 Cause of Death | NutritionFacts.org
    From what they say is the worlds leading heart-researcher saying that we are not built to eat meat.

    What do I say to something like that? Is that research valid at all?

    Don't bother arguing. Just nod your head, say "that's nice" and walk away while you nibble on a piece of bacon....

    Remember that cults force people to be vegetarians to keep mentally weak. Oftentimes they really aren't in a position to really engage in a true exchange of, and even less, evaluation of information.

    For future battles, I understand Beyond Broccoli is an intelligent argument from a pretty hardcore ex-vegan. I bought it for my Kindle but haven't had a chance to read it yet.

    But I'm starting to agree with Dargonfly's attitude. It's kind of pointless to argue, and some of the more militant ones (usually the ones you're arguing with) tend to fight with outright lies anyway. You can't logcally defend yourself when they just make stuff up. You're not going to convince them and you'll just end up pissed off, so there's no point.

    There are so many better things to do. Go for a walk in the sun without sunscreen. Munch on that bacon. Lift a big rock over your head. Find a better person to talk with -- definitely.
    Life is an ongoing Experiment of One, so here's to science!

    It was a bit like a bunch of cult members getting together to work on their rebuttals.
    Imho the only one there who made any sense was Robb Wolf.

    Agree to a debate when you're both 90. Should be pretty apparent then who was right. Until then each of you need to live your life your way.
