  1. Look into how much of the natural ecosystems are ruined, foxes, mice, rabbits, coyotes and many insects are displaced due to soybean acreage.

  2. Chicken possess Cystine which is good for healing. I personally dislike chicken, but I'll eat it to help my body heal.

  3. Ed, if humans "NATURALLY" don't like plants, why in the fuck do you think it's right to force them to change the way the body evolved for them to survive?

  4. Oh look, Ed doesn't care about animals, just feels bad because they look at him in a certain way. Fucking hypocrite doesn't give a shit about life at all.

  5. I really don’t care if you are vegan or whatever. I like meat and I want meat on my diet. Just don’t f**king tell me how to live my life.

  6. Culture isnt gonna die if anything its gonna get better their are plenty of vegan tamales, pasta dishes burgers hotdogs you name it its their.

  7. People who follow Ed are just as naive as him. God created animals and plants to eat. Humans aren't animals secondly, we did not evolve from apes. Ed seriously believes that humans are on the same level as the animals and that's hilarious. We respect the animals but that doesn't mean we cannot consume them because that's half of their purpose on earth. No shit the animal will feel fear because it's going to die, anything will be afraid before it dies but they were meant to be eaten and they have to be killed one way or another.

  8. Really, there is no point in discuss with this kind of person. Religious people have stupid ideas and will never let them go.

  9. I eat meat and I kill animals, but I do not advocate killing an animal if it is not for a good reason, like eating it. I want the animal to not have died in vain. I pray to thank the animal for giving it's life (willingly or unwillingly) to help improve the life of someone or something else. If I kill a fly at home, I feed it to my turtle. Even something that dies on it's own, like my garden spider, I will bury it in the garden soil, as it gives nutrients to my plants next spring. Also, you most certainly would want to kill something like a mosquito to prevent spread of disease, in my opinion. As a human, mosquitoes pose a threat. A huge threat. You certainly would want to help your own species survive to the fullest. I think humans have (through God and evolution) earned the right to kill things that pose a threat to other humans or animals that we value. Hunters around here kill deer. There is a problem with deer running out in the front of cars and people getting killed or injured, doing damage to the cars, etc. Now, you could say that is our fault as well, because cars are man made, and if humans hadn't made and used cars, deer would not provide a threat to humans. That is true as well, for the most part. There is a guilt of convenience. There is an entitlement that comes with superiority, as subjective as that may seem. We got to the top of the food chain for a reason, and at the top, we have the choice to stay there and eat meat, or find ways to survive without eating meat. I think that is fine as well. Also, cattle would not survive very good in the wild. They are kind of sitting targets for predators. I wonder how many more cattle even have life because of farming. Not saying, because we breed them, it's okay to kill them, but like I said, if you justify it by feeding people, it is at least a little bit better. Most cattle live much better lives than if they were stuck to fend for themselves in the wild, I believe. I have also heard from the head nutritionist for the University of Nebraska football team that it is possible to train as an athlete while not consuming animal products, but your ability to rebuild muscle after workouts (the process that makes someone gain muscle mass or recover from injury) is hindered immensely without animal products in your diet. It's possible, but you would have to consumer more vegetables than humanly possible to compete with someone whose diet consisted of a balance of plants and animals. Another thing is that in third world countries, where people can't afford to be picky, this would not be a discussion. They would be very happy to have a goat for many reasons. We are foolish to not acknowledge that being able to even discuss this is a luxury. My final point is more abstract. If humans had the same mental capacity but were not the highest animal on the food chain, and it was regular for humans to be consumed by some other species, I would thoroughly enjoy and hope for the thought that parts of my body would be prepared in a beautiful way, just like a chef might prepare a wonderful meat dish at a 5 star restaurant. I would hope that whatever the animals were that ate me, would appreciate my body and my nutrients as much as I appreciate an expensive steak, and that I wouldn't have my body be turned into something like an over-processed over-cooked meat/soy school lunch burger patty or hot dog. Even if that food rots and goes in a landfill, though, something microscopic eats that and then gets eaten, and whatever eats will again be eaten as the cycle of life continues. After all that, I really think that someone can choose to not eat meat if they want, and I think that's fine, if you want. It's not illegal to abstain. I also believe that it should not be illegal to eat meat. I think people should be able to eat as they please, knowing there are consequences of course for certain ways of eating, and knowing they need to respect where their food came from.

  10. Also, this was a wonderful session in terms of being able to discuss things and disagree on topics with a level head. I wish we could do that here in America a little better but people seem to think that if you disagree with someone you are then unfairly attacking them or being oppressive or racist or a bigot, which is counterproductive in so many ways. This is great and mostly intellectual dialog.

  11. "the bible says free the slave after 7 years" ok but he left out the best parts? "If you buy a Hebrew slave, he is to serve for only six years. Set him free in the seventh year, and he will owe you nothing for his freedom. If he was single when he became your slave and then married afterward, only he will go free in the seventh year. But if he was married before he became a slave, then his wife will be freed with him. If his master gave him a wife while he was a slave, and they had sons or daughters, then the man will be free in the seventh year, but his wife and children will still belong to his master. But the slave may plainly declare, ‘I love my master, my wife, and my children. I would rather not go free.’ If he does this, his master must present him before God. Then his master must take him to the door and publicly pierce his ear with an awl. After that, the slave will belong to his master forever. (Exodus 21:2-6 NLT)"

  12. The guy in black is so stupid I can't even. He constantly dodges the questions and instead keeps asking questions in return completely irrelevant to the subject. I couldn't bare watching more.

  13. I'm kurdish and Noah Ark meant to be lived in Ararat mountain somewhere that I was born near by but do you know that Naoh Ark has returned and changed his name as Earthling Ed??

  14. Kingdom Classification:

    There's a reason plants have their own kingdom… #SCIENCE

  15. Ahhhh I am so tired of Christians trying to claim that he's purporting Judo-Christian morals, as if they were the first to invent right or wrong – if you look at Ancient Egypt, in the period before Judaism came into existence, the followers of Ma'at, were already speaking on similar Moral ideologies, which we have in writing.

  16. You guys can say whatever but in minute 36:20 this guy killed Ed in the slavery discussion. I love Ed but he had to completely change the subject because he knew he was wrong

  17. Genesis 1:29 ESV

    And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food.

  18. GOD GAVE US ANIMALS FOR ENJOYMENT AND FOOD and we should eat them with thankfulness and without any kind of guilt. Who are we mere humans (the creation) to teach God (the creator) how to do things. Are we that arrogant?
    Look what The Word of God (The Bible) has to say about what kind of foods we can eat:

    God haves us everything for food
    Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything. Genesis 9:3

    God commands Peter to kill and eat everything
    9 The next day, as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the housetop about the sixth hour[b] to pray. 10 And he became hungry and wanted something to eat, but while they were preparing it, he fell into a trance 11 and saw the heavens opened and something like a great sheet descending, being let down by its four corners upon the earth. 12 In it were all kinds of animals and reptiles and birds of the air. 13 And there came a voice to him: “Rise, Peter; kill and eat.” 14 But Peter said, “By no means, Lord; for I have never eaten anything that is common or unclean.” 15 And the voice came to him again a second time, “What God has made clean, do not call common.” 16 This happened three times, and the thing was taken up at once to heaven.

    God reprimands those who teach abstinence of foods.
    4 Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, 2 through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared, 3 who forbid marriage and require abstinence from foods that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. 4 For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 for it is made holy by the word of God and prayer. Timothy 4:3-5

  19. Just because I can survive off of only plants doesn’t mean I only am going to eat plants I eat meat I’m never going vegetarian unless I have to

  20. Humans are part of the food chain whether vegans like it or not. Just because we have all those vegan options doesn’t mean we shouldn’t eat meat. We kill animals to eat not for the fun of it.

  21. I am a Christian and I can assure that if you know the heart of God you would understand that he could never accept the torture and unreasonable death of any creature in this planet, after all we are his creation, all of us. The Bible must be read with a loving heart and not used to excuse our dictating and insensitive behavior. Jesus taught us love not death and gave us all of the plants for us to eat. Read Genesis 1:29-30

  22. I agree with the guy who was arguing against the vegan, though I think using the Bible only for political arguments isn’t the way to do prove your point every time.

  23. lets feed him to a lion and see if god gets the lion to not eat him, like Daniel in the lions den lol, and ed (God tested Abraham by telling him to sacrifice Isaac as a burnt offering) but god stopped abraham just before he sacraficed his son issac.

  24. Religious argument — "Behold I have given to you all the plants and trees upon the Earth they shall bare you seeds and fruits these shall be your food—–Genesis ( Reference to a pre-sin or angelic diet ) later it was shown which animals that man can eat, and which they should not —it was never said we should, it said we can ——–Angelic Diet is best, its Halal, Kosher, Clean

  25. Holly patience!!!!!

  26. you look pale and sick. Also you're wearing clothes and using tech that affect other lifeforms. Vegans value all lifeforms, so stop calling yourself a Vegan, it's an insult

  27. 2 Points.. necessity and moral agency but number 3 our digestive system is literally herbivore built so were not built to eat animals. it's really just that simple especially in the time we live in now.

  28. This guy is basically saying you cant take all that is good in the bible, improve on it and then throw away all the bad. Why not?

  29. He forgot the third type and the more dominant of the vegans. Front running phonies Who push this narrative to seek attention.

  30. What vegans fail to understand is that proteins are not all created equal. The proteins we need to live a strong and healthy life do not come from pills and plants. It’s basic science. Vegans and vegetarians are more at risk and for more susceptible to disease. Google it. I don’t believe our quality of meat is the same and I am against farmed and slaughtered animals but you gotta eat. This should more be about our quality of food. The whole world is a war over some stupid shit based on peoples feelings while we the U.S have the poorest food quality in the world.

  31. Plant life is far more valuable then all life because without it we would not be here. If these people eat all the plants in the world we will be oxygen deprived and so we suffocate.

  32. Tell me which of these two guys looks healthier? I bet this guy hasn’t even been vegan very long and I bet he can’t do 20 push-ups. Black shirt doesn’t look like he works out but I bet he can do 20. If this were the old days and you had to build your own dwellings instead of going to rent or buy something a man already built then vegans would be screwed. Especially with the fact there were no supplements back in the day so you can’t gain strength and energy out of a bottle.

  33. This is so cringey to me, all the meat eaters come with these arguments that they view as majorly compelling and clever, but they all sound so incredibly ignorant and lost.

  34. For further information on the Christianity and Human-Rights question watch Rationality Rules video on this topics. Christians trying to take credit for something that isn't their "invention" is annoying as fuck. Still a healthy discussion i relly enjoyed it.

  35. everything ed said about the bible is correct but I wish hed given examples, it would have made his point much stronger

  36. Mother aTheresa was not a moral person. She was a religious nut who denied people simple health care and let them die.Religion dosen't make you a moral person, it just makes you a brainwashed fool incapable of seeing clearly.

  37. more click bait. Borrowing Steve Crowder's Change my Mind fake discussion forum. Because you have no intention of changing your mind and only want a stage to make other people wrong like Crowder does and more YouTube clicks for advertising $$$s .

  38. Eating meat is completely natural, and goes back to the start of our survival as humans… our natural instinct to survive before knowledge of anything. So can you please address the way humans would cognitively debate back then to each other about the harmful effects it has caused in the world… if humans are as moral as you say then we would be plant eaters now… naturally..

    The only thing that bothers me about it is the mass preparation and production and ruthlessness of capitalism… the billions of animals culled everyday for the sake of profit and greed.. it works but for us only… were selfish because we must survive and grow..

  39. Where was the slaughter house in the Bible? Where was the animal torture in the Bible? Yea, the Bible says (loosely) animals are to eat. If you kill them.. are you killing them to eat?

  40. You look sick. Your face is sunken, bulgy eyes and you look sleep deprived. Your skinny and mostly bones. Your teeth will rot and you need supplements to boost your diet. The company you buy supplements from are multi-national and don't care about animals or humans. They want money and to dominate the market. Just eat a normal diet. You look sick and weak. So stop trying to be all mighty cause your argument is weak like your diet…

  41. When you think about all that is involved in producing vegetables and how much you need to eat on a vegan diet compared to a carnivore diet… I think the carnivore diet is more sustainable.

  42. This reminds me of arguing with my mom when she cooks me a steak and I don’t take it and constantly brings up the bible

  43. As an avid meat eater, who enjoys some of these videos but hasn't got the time to sift through all of Ed's arguments, would someone be able to enlighten me on a few things? (im not trying to debate as I've hardly researched anything to do with this.)

    Vegan diets seem to be predominantly comprised of carbohydrates, which I would argue are worse for you than the healthy fats we get through meat. Are there long term studies on the health of vegans?

    Is it not unnatural to have to take supplements like b12 or iron rather than to utilize the food sources on earth? Doesn't the fact that many vegans become deficient in certain aspects neutralize the argument that we weren't designed to eat meat?

    If we used free-range, biodynamic practices for meat farming, wouldn't that be a better lifestyle than what could be afforded to a cow, chicken or pig than in nature? Given that all animals are going to die, and humans have the most potential, isn't it just optimising the total value output of an animal for a human to consume it rather than it be killed by other animals?

    If we stopped eating meat entirely, wouldn't these very same animals be far more vulnerable if not extinct?
