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.
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.
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.
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.
Haha thanks for the kind words! I was just in the process of moving (and being without internet for over two weeks... how did I ever survive?) not to mention starting a new job, working on my illustration portfolio and being generally awesome! :) So glad to be back on here!
