Sounds like the Bloom County cartoon where they start with vegetarianism and end up hanging from trees lest they step on any bugs.

We don't worship cows, if everyone here was a vegan there would be no cows or pigs. The species would have to be seen in the zoo. No one would keep them as pets,
there would be no reason for them to survive. This guy also talks about urbanization keeping animals from their habitat? Some animals need their space, elk, wolves to mention a couple but many co-exist very well with man. I live right in the center of Houston, at this minute I have 2 swamp rabbits, 6 squirells, 2 dozen doves, black birds & various other birds in my back yard. At night I find evidence of racoons, possums, armadillos & rats out there (I haven't smelled a skunk in several years). They don't care that this neighborhood was established 50 years ago. The east coast is eaten up with white tailed deer & other things that don't mind living with man. West coast mountian lions carry off joggers occasionaly. This writer is nuts.

Do these janes not worry about the loss of this valuable habitat for the lice and fleas?

Please. Jains.

Someone told me that Ghandi's parents were Jains and convinced themselves that they could not even consume plants morally...so they starved themselves to death.

Dunno if it's true. But it started me thinking...if you pick fruit that has fallen from the tree, carefully preserve the seeds, and eat it--and then plant the seeds, would that be morally acceptable to a Jain?
