I'm not sure about the Bible angle. Jesus served the disciples fish. I know, wrong forum. 

The only biblical angle I can see, is pre flood, but I that is changed after the flood. I do kind of doubt we will be eating meat in heaven, being that there will be not death...

Out here in New Mexico at my dad's, we had pie and ice cream first, at lunchtime, which was fun. (Apple, Blackberry, Pumpkin, Key Lime, and Buttermilk.)

Later in the day we had turkey, ham, rolls, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, my homemade cranberry sauce, and green bean casserole. Then the kids and I went back to the motel room and hibernated like bears. ?

One thing of note is there were two kinds of green bean casseroles. Normal, and then my dad experimented, because we're in New Mexico. He put hatch green chiles in the other one, and oh my word it was amazing. Highly recommend.

I know one vegetarian. In that case I think it's a health preference. I'm not sure about the Bible angle. Jesus served the disciples fish. I know, wrong forum. 

Off topic, but important question: Has @Bird Brainbeen on lately? I hope he's okay!

Yeah, I totally get a vegetarian diet for health reasons. Sounds awesome but I probably wouldn’t be able to do that given current circumstances. 
 Imo diet isn’t a purely spiritual thing, on the Bible aspect, post-flood or after the start of mosaic law, there’s nothing explicitly against eating meat; there’re even a few instances which it’s mentioned in a positive light. Before that though, I don’t know. But yeah, this is a birding forum, I degress ?

One of the theories in human evolution is that the shift to a more meat eating diet and the ability to cook/process that meat is what allowed for the expansion of the human brain in early hominids. As large growing brains require a substantial amount of nutrients which is lower/harder to access in plants due to their cell walls. And then of course with hunting and tracking prey, that requires far more cognitive ability than just eating a leaf. Yet, in a similar sense, eating fruit requires a high level of cognitive ability too, in order to see if it’s ripe enough etc. Which is why if you look at the brain of a howler monkey which is a folivore, it is a lot smaller and smoother than the brains of monekys that are primarily fruigivores/omnivores. 

Of course, none of that matters today because food can be cooked and protein can come from other sources/supplements and is readily available.

That being said, I don’t really eat a lot of meat except for chicken. I eat a lot of chicken…. I’m the person who always orders chicken strips no matter the restaurant so I don’t know what I’d do if I didn’t have that as an option ?

That’s my man!! So many people need a brain, a backbone, and some guts, if you know what I mean.

Me too! It would be darn near impossible to brain wash me. I have my own mind and my own way of making up my mind. Hint I love facts. I speak my mind popular or not. I stand up for what I believe.

I'm very thankful for the much needed rain we received today here on the East Cape.  What the heck, it is a holiday weekend.

I am thankful for the hobby of birding which has taken me to place I might never have gone otherwise, allowed me to see things live and in person I would not have seen otherwise and connected me with people I would never have met otherwise. And it has made retirement fun and exciting.

Yes!! This is one of the factors that makes birding a lot of fun.
