Eddie Izzard Would Have Made Humans Vegetarians If He Was God (VIDEO)

Eddie Izzard & Kristen Bell, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Eddie Izzard got into a deep discussion with Kristen Bell and Craig Feguson in the streets of Paris on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS). He presented a notion of how different the world might be had God made people vegetarians, rather than carnivores.

"No one would actually know about killing at all except when your granddad died," he extrapolated, making an interesting case about how vegetarianism from the beginning might have impacted murder and crime.

"If you make everyone so that we didn't even know how to kill," he said. "Then that would have worked a lot better. If I was God I'd do that."

Probably, though, we would have still figured it killing, even if it was by accidentally killing an animal during our formative years as a species. We may not have eaten it, but we would have grasped the concept that we can make things die.

We are, however, fully on board his notion that if he were God he'd also get rid of our human waste. "Why do we have waste products?" he asked. "Why don't we just eat stuff and carry on." Just imagine how smooth and happy life could be!
