Veganism (A rational response requested from fellow Atheists and freethinkers)

I wanted to write this post for quite some time. To preface, I have been an atheist for about 4 years and a vegan (someone who abstains from using animal products, for food or otherwise) for about 10 months. My change to veganism was not sudden (25 years as an omnivore.) But I feel as though my rational mind helped me break from the cultural norm. I feel as if there is a lot of evidence for why we should all become vegans (I've linked a few below.)



For me, I have always let…

The Right to be Gay.

This comes from my atheism blog on Google blogs.

"The humanity of all Americans is diminished when any group is denied rights granted to others" [Julian Bond].

What do Christians have to fear from letting gay people express their love and devotion to one another ? Nothing actually. The love two people feel for one another, the sex of two consenting adults, whether heterosexual or homosexual, does me no harm in the least. What two consenting adults feel for one…

My Two Bibles are the Human Rights Act and the Equality Act.

Hi folks;

I am a returning member from Scotland I have been active on a UK TV channel 4thought (Faith Religion Morals and Ethics) for some time but have come to realize that there really is a world wide struggle against primitive ignorant slavish theocracy and dogma but in truth I also missed you guys,

I wrote this in response to a post that quoted from their little blood soaked book of horror aka the bible and it got me thinking just how backward the UK really has been. It has…

I just got back from running an errand, I was picking up a few things at the local convenience store. When I got to the counter to pay for my purchases, I greeted the manager of the store (a woman, and an acquaintance) with; "Happy International Women's Day". She responded, "Is that what it is?"

Chapter Eight; WHAT ABOUT ALL THE GOOD THEY DO? part twenty-nine



It is fair to recognize the good that the religious adherents do again. After all, my forefathers came to this country to experience and escape

religious persecution of Europe. Religious America has allowed many

sorts of views of religion to live in a relatively peaceful manor. The

Puritans, Quakers, Baptists, Catholics, Presbyterians,…

Maestro a little Calliope Music if you Please

After a lively debate with my girlfriend over Bhutan and their proposed anti-conversion law I feel the need to do a little backpedaling. Maestro some calliope music if you please. I feel that, perhaps, my initial culturally centered opinion was a tad harsher than I…

An evolutionary perspective on human morals and their boundaries

Evolution

The fact of evolution, is clear to many, and I do not want to spend my time here… Continue

Some mornings I wake up and wonder which planet I am living on.

U.N. Anti-Blasphemy Resolution



Via Atheist Media Blog



The fact that these people are pushing so hard to shut the rest of us up, makes me suspect that they know they are in the wrong.
