Did you know Rabbits are only animals not capable of flushing out external stuff (chemicals etc.) in their eyes by blinking alone ! They need their paws to do that..
So if you manage to tie their paws, it makes them ideal for testing! – testing chemicals, like that hair spray you bought last weekend.
.. and those chemical R&D centre looks like this:

Also, did you know there are leather factories in China who are extremely skilled to skin rabbits “alive”, and process the leather in front of heaps of half dead skinless Rabbits . These companies do not afford 10second X 10workers X 100Rabbits of additional effort needed to ensure they are dead before they are skinned. Google it if you think you can stomach it.
In India believers have some undefined dislike towards animal products into places of worship. They are not allowed into temples and places of worships. I really don’t buy the idea of we all started as vegetarians and animal lovers, but I feel they are introduced into the religion to convince the followers to show god loves animals too.
Major three or four religions in India want its followers to be vegetarians.

People don’t enter temples if they had taken any non-veg that day, and most of them can’t explain why?
These all confusing rules, people made them and the same people find loopholes not to follow them, Then why to have them at all. Why restrict only to temples.
There are some more of them
- Kerosene are not supposed be used in any of places of worships. They are considered to be animal product, came into form by tones of animals and plants died billions of years ago.
- Sugar is not used in any of the Hindu religious ceremonies. The reason is sugar is prepared from Jaggery, and while doing it they polish jaggery with some animal product (I guess it is leather). So any sweet is cooked is using Jaggery directly.
I have listed certain things which are missing in those rules.
- All gods and goddesses wear silk. All Shwethambaras and Peethambaras presented to gods are silk, which are results of boiling thousands of silkworms. Similarly honey, which is obtained killing or burning thousands of honeybees. Continue reading “Believers and ‘one day vegetarians’” →
