Members: 263
Latest Activity: Dec 18


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.

Sydni, you are welcome. I just put in a request from interlibrary loan. They'll send it over from any particpating library that has it.

EARTHLINGS is a feature length documentary about humanity's absolute dependence on animals (for pets, food, clothing, entertainment, and scientific research) but also illustrates our complete disrespect for these so-called "non-human providers." The film is narrated by Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix (WALK THE LINE, GLADIATOR) and features music by the critically acclaimed platinum artist Moby .

With an in-depth study into pet stores, puppy mills and animals shelters, as well as factory farms, the leather and fur trades, sports and entertainment industries, and finally the medical and scientific profession, EARTHLINGS uses hidden cameras and never before seen footage to chronicle the day-to-day practices of some of the largest industries in the world, all of which rely entirely on animals for profit. Powerful, informative and thought-provoking, EARTHLINGS is by far the most comprehensive documentary ever produced on the correlation between nature, animals, and human economic interests.

Watch the trailer.

Syndi, I've seen that crow/kitten video before. That is amazing. Here is one between a fawn and a cat:

There are actually quite a few videos along that same vein. I'll watch the TED video when I get some time. Thanks for the post.

My vet usually charges around $50, and then there is a one-time registration fee of about $12. However, some humane societies, rescue groups, and SPCAs offer low-cost options on certain days.

thats sounds cool is it expensive? cuz i might go do that to all of my animals at my house

It is a little microchip that contains nothing but a number (not really a tracking device like a GPS device.) If your pet is lost and brought into a shelter or vet's office, they'll scan him with a handheld reader. The reader will display the number on the chip. They will then call the manufacturer and report the number. The manufacturer then contacts you and tells you where your dog is located, and who has found him. It is almost foolproof!
