RE: [pfaf] Re: Plant based diets Was "definition of "farm"
- There is a yahoo group - cosfarming - which is run by a vegan, as a practical way of farming, and it is happy to debate the whys and wherefores of veganism v. meat eating etc. They are a nice bunch and would probably welcome some outside imput.
". . . the greatest peril of life lies in the fact that human food consists entirely of souls. All the creatures that we have to kill to eat, all those that we have to strike down and destroy to make clothes for ourselves, have souls, souls that do not perish with the body . . . All that exists lives."
