Why I don’t eat meat, part 2

Yesterday I mentioned I didn’t eat meat for two categories of reasons: taste and intellectual reasons. Today I’ll cover my intellectual reasons.


You know what?


Now that I think of it, no intellectual reasons motivate my eating habits. Everything I think of that seems not based in taste, when I peel away at it, turns out based in taste.

I expect your reasons ultimately are based in taste too. You can tell your reasons aren’t objective because other people disagree with you. I mean, maybe you’re right and they’re wrong, but they say the same about you, so I’ll stick with my conclusion.

See my next few posts on non-issues to see why I don’t find your reason objectively true.


Here are reasons people who want to change me seem to want to argue about. They have a hard time understanding that I’m not motivated by something they feel confident they can win an argument with me on. Again, sorry, but I don’t like arguing about points just because you like to. After listing the reasons I’ll probably write a few posts on why I find these reasons uncompelling.

  • Health
  • Environment
  • Animal rights
  • Animal cruelty
  • Feeling closer to nature
  • Religion
