Veg or Non-Veg

It's impossible that you are in India and you don't land up into controversy called Veg or Non-Veg.
People have different opinions about eating veg or non-veg food, influenced mainly by caste , taste, nourishment , violence etc. I ll try to give opinions that I have come across :

Against Non-Veg
1] Cruelty to animals.
2] Man is a herbivorous
3] No killing for food.
4] Few say we cannot withstand bloodshed
5] Even if plants are killed they at least don't cry loud ... I know a weired one :) ... Many eggetirians fall in this category
6] religion prohibits ..... again baseless I feel for obvious reasons..

For Non-Veg
1] Is nutritious
2] Plants also get killed in Veg food ... so no big deal in killing animals
3] These animals are specially bred for killing
4] People who eat don't actually kill them and if they stop eating a large amount of people get unemployed .. I think this is baseless ... this way if you curb terrorism a lot of terrorists would get unemployed :)
5] In some places vegetation is scant .. so people have to eat meat. [I guess these people are exempt from controversy... though there is surely some controversy in it evident from this blog's Title :) ...we can ignore that from the time being.. ]

I have found no one yet who oppose eating veg food completely .. I mean a purely non-vegetarian human :) .. though i am sure such specimen would surely exist...

All in all .. this is no doubt a controversial issue... but we have to accept some of these points to make our own theory to conclude which type of diet you wanna follow and then change the theory as you agree to others opinions :) .. Bon Appetite

Can Equality be justified

I wanted to start this blog for a long time ... It’s totally a different controversy y i didnt :) So here goes nothing ..
Recently I read this article in Times of India about James Watson, co-discoverer of the DNA double-helix.
His most recent comment that he is “inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa” because “all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours - whereas all the testing says not really”, There it goes the first topic for this blog : Is the Universe programmed to be equal

So what does this scientist has to say "Our wanting to reserve equal powers of reason as some universal heritage of humanity will not be enough to make it so." So when we say that every1 will get equal opportunity, everyone has some skill less or more, ultimately we are all born equal etc etc ...give it a second thought.

Its more than agreed that females are physically less strong than male counterparts [feminists : no offence meantt ]. Can it be not true that some section of society cannot be more smart than other? Few people would never be able to do what others can?. We are not born equal?. In this case is it justified to have equal opportunities for all ? Off course there are exceptions... China[wrestler] can beat most of the men I have met ...

The topic isn’t about men and women , scientists .. The idea is to find Is equality justified?

Friends please give your views..
