Hello =)

#1  Postby EquALLity » Jul 17, 2016 2:11 pm

Hi there! =)

I'm a member of another forum online in which someone posted a topic about a discussion on this forum, so I decided to sign up to join the conversation. I'm mainly here for that discussion, but I might possibly get involved in other conversations as well.

About me:
1) I'm an atheist who is really disturbed by the harm religion is currently inspiring in the world.
2) I'm also very disturbed by the backlash towards certain communities in America based on religious bigotry (Muslims).
3) I don't eat meat or other animal products for ethical reasons (that's the type of discussion I signed up to take part in).
4) I adore Bernie Sanders. :P
5) I've been trying to come up with a number five for like five minutes because I feel like four isn't complete.

Nice to meet all of you. :)

I don't eat meat for ethical reasons either. I eat it because I like it.

Well, I think he has a pretty good record on animal welfare. http://feelthebern.org/bernie-sanders-o ... l-welfare/

As opposed to Trump, who killed a ferret to use as his hairpiece.

I was vacuuming the house in the nude, as one does, and I slipped and fell on the flying ant.

Haha, no. More of because it's gross to me than for ethical reasons. :P

It would be filling, tasty, healthy, environmentally friendly and it would even look pretty but meh you are not taking it seriously

Hey, It's your business idea. If it's viable, whether I take it seriously or not is academic.

Well, when there's herds of meal worms sweeping majestically across the plains of the Czech republic, I'll guess I'll have egg on my face.
