I have a question because I don't know:

Do fundamentalist Hindu's forbid the drinking of cow milk?

Great article. Thanks. I found the following to be either amusing or disturbing:

Hindus believe that each cow contains 330 million gods and goddesses.

Exactly that. Ok, it's meat, but the thought of it growing in a lab....I love cooking, but this patty is not what I'd love to cook.
Maybe this is the food of the future.

Please elaborate as I'm very ignorant on the subject: where do they find these gods and goddesses in a cow? And 330 million???

No matter what happens....never stop believing in people.....never stop believing in love♥♥

It's derived from a cow so I wouldn't think they'd eat it. I would think they'd need to create a completely synthetic protein in order for it to be acceptable to Hindus.

Aggie; I'm not a Hindu.  If anything, I am probably more a Quaker than anything, having been raised that way in my early years.  I just found that place about Hindus and she asked a question, so I figured whatever she asked may have been in the material on the site.  I have no idea why they believe anything, but I do not eat animal flesh of any kind and agree with them on not eating beef, but for my own reasons.

Which is why every time I go to India I walk out into the middle of a busy intersection, put my hands on my hips and yell in my best Moses voice - I CONSUME YOUR GODS!  BOW TO ME!

Thank you...I will try to find out when I have a minute cause I don't understand how they find their deities in cows...and millions of them.

And I thought Islamic radicals were the only "strange" common people on earth.

Huh. I am now cooking a delicious T-bone steak in peaceful differerance to such a bizzare belief(the 330 million gods)

Though, I do much prefer a good salad.

Wonder how many "gods" my salad has...

Absolutely not! I understand the Hindu veneration of the cow is based on the cow being the perfect providing being, turning grass into milk and dung, both of which are used by humans. They certainly accept the dung and the milk.
