I've been a vegetarian since March. I thought it would be hard to stop eating meat, but it was a smooth transition :). Glad to see some recipes posted here, I'm not much of a cook.

...and some would very easily revert to mob violence and gruesomeness given the right circumstances (e.g. the Holocaust).

I wonder if you're right Alex. Maybe they used Smokin' Moses BBQ sauce...

Thanks for the links, Daniel. I knew there was human sacrifice performed in the Americas, but didn't know the details. Pretty gruesome practices. The more I find out about religion and history, the more sounds like humans all over the planet were pretty violent and messed up until fairly recently (and some still have a way to go...).

Actually, the meso-Americans went one further, so mto speak. They 'harvested' humans by engaging war on outlying provinces, and brought them back for sacrifice and barbecue (here).

It's horrible, but apparently witch burning and similar rituals in the west were. per capita, comparable in terms of humans killed for religious purposes (from the book "1491 if I remember correctly")

Yeah, but what happened after those animals were sacrificed?
The priests had a lovely little BBQ.

I'm glad to see there are so many vegetarian and vegan atheists! I became a vegetarian before I became an (ex-Christian) atheist. Seeing the way animals are treated in the Bible wasn't the main reason I became an atheist, but as a vegetarian and animal-lover, the fact that God tells people to burn and slaughter animals for no particular reason (other than he likes the smell, apparently) was one of those things that just didn't make sense to me.

Currently I'm vegan from Beltane to Samhain (the growing seasons).
I hope to make the move to year-round veganism once the kids are grown and out of the home. I don't force veganism on them, because to me that's just as dogmatic and bad as forcing a religion on them (c'mon, you all know vegans who follow their dietary restrictions 'religiously').
I'm working on a project to see just how sustainable and self-sufficient it is possible to be. We already have a sustainable home, and veganism would allow us to grow virtually all of our own food. Once we get that perfected, I'm going to write another book on the subject.

Hey guys! Love the group. I'm a new vegan (couple of months now) and was just wondering if anyone had a favourite recipe, or any tips to help with the transition... I've been a vege for years, so it's not too shocking, but there are some things I miss a little (CHEESE!).

Welcome, Nikolai!
I know how you feel. Until I got Online and found these groups, I thought I was the only vegetarian atheist out there. I am not a new age follower, but I have been a vegetarian since I was 16; an atheist since I was 12.

It is lonely where I live, too; in the midwestern United States in the Bible belt and among people who think I'm nuts for not eating dead aninals. But you are not alone!
