checkbox firefox extension developer ideology damaged by veganism?

Filed under: underdeveloped — Tags: — Seth Wisely @ 14:22

The FDA essentially considers veganism to be child abuse in pregnant woman as the self destructive lifestyle prevents certain brain structural development.

Undetected and untreated vitamin B12 deficiency [and folic acid] in infants can result in severe and permanent neurological damage

Should it be no surprise then that he promotes veganism while using the largest ad corporation’s blogging service to decry the “evils” of capitalism?

Life Inc, on that very topic, weak premise: proximity.  He makes the claim that society and nuclear families are to blame for the world’s ills in this case a “shrill condemnation of how corporate culture has disconnected human beings from each other”.   If anything the apathy- and indifference afforded by high population density of large cities is much to blame WITH cooperation of increasing wrong-tolerance.  Capitalism is morally agnostic: holding it to blame is irrational at best. (for the simple: this is not the same as ‘capitalism’ is evil’.  One must bring one’s moral code to capitalism in much the same way as one does to public life, or public service.)

@ vegans

since the vitamins developing children REQUIRE cannot be sourced from your flawed ideology’s food source restrictions [1] they must take supplements.  It follows logically these supplements originate from sources antithetical to veganism.

Vegans eat only food of plant origin. Because animal products are
the only food sources of vitamin B12, vegans must supplement their diets
with a source of this vitamin. In addition, vegan diets, particularly
those of children, require care to ensure adequacy of vitamin D and
calcium

More steak for the rest of us

However all vegans are ideologically hypocritical: plants “deserve” to live in exactly the same way animals “deserve” to live.  Vegans must WAIT for their (potential) food to die before eating it.  Buying it dead is not sufficient as they would be participating in the wholesale slaughter of vegetables.

oh noes! I agree with Richard Dawkins … about Bill O’Reilly

091029 dawkins intellectually dishonest

Richard Dawkins, the self appointed apologist in chief for atheism (contratheism specifically), makes few good points.  Setting aside his logically self refuting ideology, atheism, he makes an excellent point: there is a need for intelligent TV editorial hosts.   O’Reilly, akin to Dawkins, certainly is not much more than of average intelligence.

091029 no intelligence allowed

Intelligent Design no more belongs in a science class than does the patently illogical ‘evolution’ theory of spontaneous life from non-life  (time is neither an efficient cause nor an effective cause). Both are metaphysical issues.  If the topic is to be shared in socialist re-education centers then both theories must be presented.  It provides a segue to reintroduce ethics and logic into the public school curriculum through the addition of a philosophy unit requirement.
