I view 'organic' as nothing more than a marketing scheme. The propaganda of the day is that anything "natural" is automatically good, and anything artificial is evil; I refuse to be suckered in by that.
While I did ask for opinions in my OP I had rather hoped for informed ones.
I do consider that informed. I didn't mean to imply I would never buy organic, just that I wouldn't *always* buy it, out of some misbegotten notion that everything organic is always better.
"I view 'organic' as nothing more than a marketing scheme." Doesn't come across as a very informed opinion though. Sounds more like something my dad would have said twenty years ago just because it was 'newfangled'.

I do however agree totally about not everything artificial being bad -or even 'evil'.

Pain is inevitable.
Suffering is optional.
