bette thanks I completely forgot about the Inuit. Saw another show that they were eating rotten fish, or wale... I think. Here's the show.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8d8EymQPiqk
sebastien: "I am sorry if I sounded pretentious in any way. I know some people take vegans as pretentious people but I assure you my intentions are pure. And again, my use of language is limited here, my first language is French."
No it's me, I can come off sounding like an ass do to my poor communications skills. Do my best to head that perception off before it gets started.
sebastien: "I dont want to get into a deep conversation on sexuality here but if you ask me the need in our sexual life, I think it goes way beyond what you enumerated. But I just don't see why this becomes such an important subject when it involves no cruel treatments of beings."
This is an example of my poor ability to communicate, sorry for that. It was a poor attempt to express my understanding of Global truth, that which is true for everyone, and local truth, that which is true for the individual (opinion, and preference). My uneasiness comes from trying to establish a dialog between Christians and Muslims long ago. Each of them were firmly entrenched in their beliefs, and would not compromise one bit to discuss inconsistencies. However they sure loved pointing out the inconsistencies of the others' faith. Because of this I imagined a person who is passionate about eating meat, and a vegan would never agree on anything, but end up endlessly arguing for the sake of their own preferences. I didn't want to say that before because it sounds as if your unable, or unwilling to except any truth beyond your current view. That is not my intent, but a failure to communicate. It also shows that I tend to expect and outcome before anything is ever achieved, and on top of that you may very well be one hundred percent right. So I'm going to stick my foot in my mouth, and quietly listen.
sebastien: "About two months ago I was exposed to a rich source of information that made me realize the unnecessary cruelty that was going on. In becoming vegan I lost my arrogance, I humbled in taking all the suffering I was exposed to, understanding my part in the problem. I still wake up in during the night in sweat and I feel sorry for every being that was tortured and killed for my pleasure. All I am trying to do now, is to be a voice for the victims who don't have one."
Would you be willing to tell us more. I'm really interested in the cruelty part. Also could you, if it's not to much trouble, tell us what you eat on a normal bases. Thank you,
BTW you guys post to fast, can't keep up >.>
