The Vegan and Vegetarian Thread

Humanity is currently on top of the food chain and that can change at the drop of a hat.

All that it takes is for the sun to hiccup and throw out some plasma, or for a random medium-size meteor strike, or for the Yellowstone Park 'bubble' to burst or many other natural 'disturbances' and your wish will come true.
Even with the fall of civilisation, man is still a near apex predator. Take a while for wolf or bear populations to get to levels where they would threaten us.

Just too many rats in the box, that's all. A sad fact that humanity is currently a pollutant on the planet.
More species died out before we came along than after.

Agreed.

We have the means (hands, opposing thumbs) and the inclination (brain) to survive. Also, humans are adaptable and very versatile.

The key word though is 'predator', that is what humans are. Not just to hunt and kill prey, but in general our competitive spirit and highly developed urge to 'win' is a trait that is hard to beat.

I think we could do with a global pandemic. Regardless of religion or ethics, we could do with rather less folk on the planet than we have. Perhaps with less folk the ideology of eating meat would be simpler.
Holy thread resurrection Batman, but looks like your dreams have come true!

I eat a lot of Vegan food but mainly because I can't eat dairy. I still eat meat mind you. :)

Ovo-Lacto Veggie since 17 and then after 33 years cut out all dairy and eggs last year.
I am a big lover of cheese, the vegan ones aren't as nice IMO, but I can put up with Applewood smoked as an alternative, but found I eat a lot less now that I'm dairy free!
I've not found it to hard to cook for myself, it's just planning on eating out. Veggie to dairy and egg free cuts out a lot of choices, but I have been pleasantly surprised by some of the chains having their own good choice of options on menus.
