OK, so PETA have offered money to help the archdiocese of Minnesota if they'll erect an image of Jesus stating "go vegan". Now, I am fully in favour of veganism, and would be very happy if everybody…Continue

About Me:
I'm a husband, animal lover, moral vegetarian. My wife is an ecologist. I work in IT by day, but that's just to pay the bills. I really don't care about my career except that it feeds me and my cohabitantas at home. I am the debate and presentation co-ordinator for the Grand River Atheists (Kitchener/Cambridge/Waterloo/Guelph area in Ontario Canada). My wife is a fiddle player (almost entirely playing Irish style) and I a Celtic Guitar accompanist (accompanying almost entirely Irish tunes!).
Age
36-40
Why are you here?
Isn't that a deep question? From a biological standpoint, I don't remember being consulted on the matter. From a philisophical standpoint, to increase happiness.
The religion you left
Catholic
Why you left your religion.
Because it's obviously based on notions that seemed sensible prior to understanding humans the way we do today (philisophically, psychologically, neurologically)

Michael:

 

Your comment about my book: I would not expect anything more from a narrow-mined atheist.  And, by the way, you'd get more female action (and be less angry) if you did not lookso much like Fidel.  But, then, atheists are such free thinkers that they do not care to fit into society.  Your atheism (like your beard) is a way of saying FU to mainstream culture.  If you look hard enough in a mirror, you'd realize that your repudiation of religion is a piece with your counter-culture appearance.

No, I don't believe I am the same Kai. I only found this site about 2 weeks ago and only joined today. Hopefully my namesake didn't have a bad rep.

Hi Michael, first of all, thanks for the welcome, I really like it here on TA. I appreciate your interest, but there’s so much to say on the subject of non theists living in predominantly Muslim countries that I wouldn’t want to bother you with it unless you ask for it! I’d be glad to answer any questions you or other members have, but of course all I can offer is my personal experience and knowledge. I have spent considerable time in both Egypt and Saudi Arabia, so you might say that I have a somewhat better view from where I stand. Feel free to ask what you like

Hi Michael, I've noticed that you haven't been hanging out with us and I do miss you being here. How's it going? You doing OK? I've joined up with the Atheist Meet-up group in my area and have met a very diverse and interesting group of people. The group has many activities so it's nice to be making some new friends in my my new local.... Hope you have not deserted T/A? Come back soon, you are a real asset here and I'd hate to lose your friendship.

Ah yes, I posted it, then was told that there was already a thread on the book. I think in the Coffee Break group?

If you did... I'd make you eat my burger. Just saying. lol also, feel free to shove lettuce down my throat if I do the same.

I fish for the meat I eat. How is that immoral? To assume everyone gets their meat from the grocery is wrong.
At 8:59pm on October 2, 2010, Ryan E. Hoffman said…
I think the morality debate of vegetarianism vs. omnivorism (not sure if that's a word) is a much different conversation than the ethics of PETA, and one that I would probably decline to debate with you, because I do not have my facts in a row and I come down on the opposite side, but I would attend such a debate!

I was just upset at the obvious provacateur nature of the subject title to gain views.
At 1:25pm on September 30, 2010, Atheist Fry said…
The protein and acid in meat allowed the growth of larger brains. Like the one you use to read this sentence. Why deny this? What is immoral about eating meat, when done in a humane manner? There are plenty of animal populations that need to be kept under control (I'm sure you would consider humans one of these, but that is a sticky moral undertaking)- should we just dump the meat after we kill those animals? That would be wasteful. Proper hunting, when done correctly, is absolutely moral.
