    If you advocate "equality among all beings ", you are supposed not to consume the foods.

    Author :Chang Kai-Chi

    Some netizens have asked questions, just as I originally wanted to talk about this topic:

    Many Buddhists or wizards often like to adopt some logons that they even have no idea but to intimidate the believers saying that "the reason why all beings are not equal" is precisely because of the past generations with "karma" related.

    This is really reversing the effects with causes and it is so ignorant!

    "Inequality in sentient beings" is a natural phenomenon of earth creatures and a result of different evolutionary routes. It has nothing to do with "business news";

    All earth species originated from a single-celled life. After a billions of years evolutions, to forage and continue the life of the offspring, human have to compete on the earth with insufficient resources. Naturally, this kind of competition is random so that the winners defeat then the fittest survive. As a result of the evolution of each of them in different directions, a variety of life forms evolved, and thus there will be "unequal beings."

    Moreover, another aspects of competition is to "improve the physical fitness" and "accumulate the surviving wisdom" so that the altitude of life evolution can be effectively improved.

    Think about it, if all beings are equal and never compete, will we evolve? Will not! We are still a group of single-celled creatures.

    Think again, are plants not unequal? The competition of plants is silent and bloodless. However, tall plants can absorb more photosynthesis, and the underlying plants may wither. Some plants may even poisonous to expand their fields; then plant inequality Is it also a "world newspaper"?

    Suppose that, like Sakyamuni’s " equality among all beings," human have already starved to death, believe it or not?

    Think about it; today's heavily relying-on foods (including vegetarians); mostly grains, common rice, wheat, barley, corn, potatoes, sorghum, millet, sweet potato, sago, etc. How these foods became the human main dishes?

    These were originally weeds. After millions of years of "human experiments" (basing on human life experience/knowledge), these plants were found to be the most suitable foods. Human began to learn breeding, cultivation, and then planting them in large quantities. Then Humans survived.

    Isn't this also an indirect "species competition"? Could classify as "un-equality among all beings"?

    Assuming that you have to advocate " equality among all beings " and let all plants develop freely, will there be so many plants on the earth such as rice, wheat, barley, corn, potato, sorghum, millet, sweet potato, sago, etc?

    Then, weeds, mosses, miscanthus and beautiful roses, cosmos, morning glory, sorrel, and highly toxic flowers and trees--only one hundred millionth species are rice, wheat, corn. Then humans could survive via eating Moss, miscanthus, beautiful roses, cosmos, morning glory and sorrel?

    Sakyamuni proclaimed " equality among all beings" in his life; why should he go out for food? Directly pull out the weeds, moss, mimosa, morning glory as food, so why eat curry rice?

    Now I still advocate " equality among all beings ", even if it is a vegetarian, why are you picking it up? Why do you only eat corn and tofu?

    It is necessary to advocate "equality among all beings" to start from yourself; if you are hungry, you should eat the roadside weeds directly, and don't pick them. Otherwise, talking about " equity among all beings " is just a foolish murmuring!

    Shaving your head is personal freedom, but most of them are shaved together with basic IQ.
