At Christmas we celebrate life and kindness...

by killing a turkey and a tree.

Who ever said we were not an advanced society?

Dear Tom,

Ummm, you are about 2+ weeks out of sync with the rest of us.
(Ie... You might want to flip the page on your Calendar ... or go out & buy a new one)

I suggest you plead your case in the RFD Forums... another 300+ Days from now.

When folks are more apt to listen, and you may score some converts

Thanks for your words of wisdom. But my post was as a result of seeing all my neighbors putting their Christmas trees at the curb to be picked up as today was garbage day.

Look at it another way, I'm giving you 300+ days to think about your next kill ;)

Veggies have no soul. Second form of existence after mineral and right before animals.

Not sure about other areas but Christmas trees picked up around here get chipped up and reused as mulch, ground cover, etc.

How else is you to cook a turkey if you don't kill it first? Eat it raw, cook it alive? I don't think so.
As for the Christmas tree, ours goes to the city who mulches and composts them. Got a better idea?

Or are you subtly suggesting we all become vegans. And have Christmas trees made out of? Metal? Plastic/oil?

Yup...

Ashes to Ashes, and Dust to Dust as they say
Mulch to tree, and back to mulch

All I'm saying is we have thoughtless traditions. But such are the limits of the current human race. No wonder it has to come to an end. Sooner rather than later.

Both are renewable resources.

But I agree somewhat - it seemed like a good idea for a few hundred thousand people but making some of this stuff scale to hundreds of millions or billions is raping the planet.

People are also a renewable resource... Actually the human race is a renewable resource, but people don't want to hear that. Funny that people are so obsessed with saving the planet when the facts are that the planet WILL survive. It is the people on it who won't.

No matter what the future holds, there is absolutely nothing the current race could do to change its destiny. We haven't globally reached a level of evolution that could prevent our own elimination. People live in a world where they think there is no consequences to their actions. As long as it is "legal" then everything is fine. Children think this way.
