    "Dave Scott (six-time winner
    of Hawaii's Ironman Triathlon), Sixto Linares (world record
    holder for the 24-hour triathlon), Edwin Moses (400 meter hurdler
    undefeated in international competition for eight straight years),
    Paavo Nurmi (twenty world records and nine Olympic medals),
    Andreas Cahling (1980 Mr. International title in body building), and
    Ridgely Abele (U.S. Karate Association World Champion)." But
    admittedly I'm not sure how many of these are vegan. They are
    vegetarian.

    You're just quibbling. You know that there have been plenty of world-
    class vegan athletes. I've certainly named at least two.

    The point of course is that Mr N. A. Cho's stereotype "They all look
    pasty and malnourished" is bull****. As you well know.

    I have presented information about vegan athletes. It's very easy to
    find.

    Jonathan Ball, aka George Plimpton, is quibbling about how many of
    them are world-class. At least two of them are. The point is that Mr N
    A Cho's stereotype of vegans as "pasty and malnourished" is nonsense.

    Two is not "many".

    In any case, veganism is well-understood by the medical profession to be
    an inherently unhealthy lifestyle, adherence to which is quite dangerous
    for many segments of the population. This isn't even in question. How
    is veganism relevant to world-class athleticism, anyway? Performance at
    peak levels requires peak nutrition, and it's well-known that a vegan
    lifestyle is detrimental to such achievement. For those who are able to
    be vegan, overriding their essential nature for whatever reason, more
    power to them as far as I'm concerned... but let's don't pretend that
    such people are as healthy as they could be otherwise.

    Brendan Brazier is another one. "During his six year career, Brazier
    was regarded as one of the top endurance athletes in the world." He
    was vegan during this time.

    It's moving the goalposts to say "currently". My claim was not
    specific to the present tense.

    My claim was based on a memory of reading something about world-class
    athletes, but I now realize that that was vegetarian, not vegan.
    However I have found you three world-class vegan athletes. No doubt
    more could be found. This is boring. Don't you have anything better to
    do with your time?

    It's up to four now. It's harder than I thought to find athletes who
    are both world-class and vegan. It's a lot easier if you relax it to
    "vegetarian".

    Actually, it's complete nonsense. The position of the American
    Dietetic Association is that vegan diets are nutritionally adequate at
    all stages of life and have many significant health benefits. Two
    doctors have told me that it is good for my health that I am vegan.
    There are many studies indicating that vegan diets can have
    significant benefits for reducing the risk of heart disease and
    cancer. There is no evidence at all that a vegan diet is inherently
    unhealthy.

    These lists are just stupid. Why are "vegans" so ****ing insecure they
    feel they need to put them together? Any why is the list of *real*
    "world-class" athletes who are "vegan" so short, while the list of
    ****ing ****witted showbiz celebrity "vegans" so long?

    Here's the basic truth - a truth with real meat in it: "vegans" very
    rarely are people of substance. "veganism" is the victory of style over
    substance, and that's always a bad thing - always.

    The point of the list is to demonstrate that it is perfectly possible
    to get peak nutrition on a vegan diet.

    You have no particular rational grounds for saying that.

    Do you suppose that you are a person of substance?

    No, that's *not* the point of the list, and you ****ing well know it.
    The point of the list is to try to attach some of the prestige of
    "world-class" athletes to "veganism".

    I have every rational grounds for saying it. It's a fact.

    What, precisely, would those rational grounds be?

    It's a statement of fact. That's what *all* those lists are. "vegans"
    are very acutely aware of their lunatic-fringe status, and these lists
    are a desperate, plaintive effort to try to attach prestige to their
    position. It's a form of appeal to authority - a logical fallacy.

    My observation that publicly visible "vegans" usually are people who
    have done nothing of substance. Also, my observation that these lists
    of "famous 'vegans'" *ALWAYS* are disproportionately populated by
    obviously flaky people in show business and pop culture, while there is
    a huge and glaring lack of engineers, scientists and, especially,
    prominent medical doctors.

    "veganism" simply is not a serious proposition. It's style, not substance.
