I am a free thinker. I was born into a family and raised along side of my brother, with both my mother and my father. All three of them are omnivores, all three of them are/were smokers, and all…Continue
"My granny (my dad's family is from Arkansas) died on February 12, 2009. She died after I fully deconverted and I remember thinking why was my Atheism being tested so soon? Interesting how things play out sometimes. I'm 27 now and the last…"
"My mother had a similar story because she was raised on a farm, as were her parents. She was enamored by a calf, as many young children are prone to a fondness toward animals. One day she also realized that the calf was not their, and she found out…"
"Several key purporters of atheism (Bill Maher, Richard Dawkins, and various others) have been trying to get atheists to come out of the closet, stand up, have their vote counted, their opinions heard, and their notions given consideration…"
"I agree with Joshua. People are raised and told that animals are food and that God is their lord. More enlightened people free themselves from the constraints of these, and can think outside of the box, break free from the mold, etc. We have the…"
"I dated a girl 5 years ago who was a vegetarian for ethical reasons, and I was not at the time. I had always done volunteer animal rehabilitation, had a strong interest in zoology, etc. since I was a child. However, being indoctrinated with the idea…"
"I agree that people are animals. I agree that our body's enzymes, our teeth, and other structures evolved us as omnivores. I agree that we were meant to by nature. I cannot argue with millions of years of evolution. Unfortunately for both of…"
"Also, you're going to die naturally, anyhow. What's the harm if I help you along with the process? Of course, I wouldn't. I'm just giving you an analogy which I would hope you find to be potent. Of course, I tend to be overly…"
"Wow, you took this shit all the way to nitrogen in the soil and the other atoms in the decomposed animal. Yes, we're all linked. Yes, the water you drank today contains H2O which is almost guaranteed to have been pissed out by a dinosaur…"
"A hunk of obsidian consists of matter (and is in turn affected by gravity). It absorbs all wavelengths of light (which is why our eyes perceive it to be 'black). It possesses density, hardness, texture, and several other properties of matter.…"
"I try to check my emotions at the door, and put forth unadulterated logic (at least, that is how I view it). Obviously, we don't all have the same 'truth.' Obviously, anyone who supports something believes that they are correct. Of…"
"A cat wouldn't touch that shit. After being processed with hormones, preservatives, additives and fillers, let alone the abnormal ratios of saturated fat and sodium in fast food, I would be committing my creatures to a slow and painful death.…"
": ( It is apparent that your mind's eye is colorblind to any atrocity which does not involve a human victim. You cannot seem to see what makes us so similar, and what places us on the same plane in this universe. Again, I'd probably have…"
"I've been at work for the last 8 hours, and only now returned. Glad to be back in the fray.
I work at a restaurant. There is excess meat wasted into a garbage bin every single night. They've offered me some, but I'm a vegetarian. I…"

I'm currently celebrating my one year aniversary as a Vegan!! Woo hoo! I can't remember the exact date so I'm just gonna celebrate the entire month!! Ok, so I'll catch up with you soon-
