HUMANE ATHEISTS is a group for people who are interested in trying to live a humane life by understanding the issues surrounding animal welfare.

Members: 262
Latest Activity: on Saturday


HUMANE ATHEISTS is for anyone interested in issues surrounding animal welfare and animal rights. You don't have to be a pet lover, a vegetarian, or an activist to join. You just have to like exploring new ideas and sharing information about the relationships between animals and people, and how we should or should not treat them.

I welcome posts on personal experiences, news and inspirational stories, action alerts, ethical questions, humane living options such as products and websites, and related topics.

I look forward to your contributions, and I hope that we can make HUMANE ATHEISTS one of the most active and vital groups on Atheist Nexus.

It was a nice story, but I think fewer pets woulod be getting these diseases (I'm not saying in this case)if they ate real food, instead of grains (which are waste products of cereal comp and they did not evolve to eat) and garbage off of the slaughter house floor.  There is nothing regulating what is in pet food, as far as quality, and it is killing our pets.  China did it in a quick way, but usually it happens over time.  A highly heated nugget of garbage is not a good diet and kills over time.  Yes, I have had animals in the past live to old ages on kibble, but that is what i call the George Burns effect.  He lived to 100 smoking cigars, but no one with any sense would recommendsmoking for a long healthy life.

What a nice story Dallas - glad the dog got a wonderful last meal.

Is it possible that the human race has a better chance at community with Animals than Peoples?It is about 50/50 considering each is being slaughtered.

I will be donating my time to an animal shelter helping the dogs and cats there. I love animals.

I give generously to many animal organizations. Today I mailed off a donation to the Humane Society and the other day I mailed in my donation to the ASPCA. Anyway, I give to the Austin Animal Shelter as well. Just a few of the organizations I give to. The list would be too long to put here.

Or, the cat food contains bones or brains from dead cows and dead sheep.  I think that's where mad cow disease originated in humans.
