There is no answer to this, why I say this is mainly because of one reason, when you are born, do you obtain the milk from an animal or a plant, you get the first food from your mom, I think that ends the issue there, you already ate meat from the start

Nope. Milk is not meat. Milk is freely given by the cow. Meat is forceably taken by killing the animal. Two VERY different things.

I mean when you are born, there is something known as breast-feeding, I don't want to talk about sex parts, but it is the truth

Guru ji says himself you shouldnt sacrafice your life for being vegeterian its a known fact that when the singhs and singhnia were in the jungles they had to eat the meat to survive even though they were vegeterians. so the guru gave them the five situation that they would be allowed too.

hmmmmm this topic gets everyone. First of all spiritualism and vegetarianism go together. Secondly Guru Ji said, jeev hateya nahi karni which basically means not to kill. Meat comes from killing which isn't what Guruji wants us to do so guess 'Meat and Sikhi' don't mix but then again Rehat Maryada says don't eat halal does this mean, a Sikh can eat jhatka? I myself don't eat meat, simply because Guruji said, not to kill and there are other things we can eat like fruit and veges.

Wow, humans are omnivores. Vegetarianism has nothing to do with spirtuality. People who know nothing about translating gurbani incorrectly translate it to present their case for "vegetarianism". You cannot just read one line and translate. You have to read the entire shabad and get the context to do the correct translation.

Also, below from gurbani:

"ਮਾਸੁ ਮਾਸੁ ਕਰਿ ਮੂਰਖੁ ਝਗੜੇ ਗਿਆਨੁ ਧਿਆਨੁ ਨਹੀ ਜਾਣੈ ॥ Maas Maas Kar Moorakh Jhagarrae Giaan Dhhiaan Nehee Jaanai || मासु मासु करि मूरखु झगड़े गिआनु धिआनु नही जाणै ॥ The fools argue about flesh and meat, but they know nothing about meditation and spiritual wisdom."

I guess that make all of us on this forum fools!
