Freedom of Thought Report 2018

Freedom of Thought Report 2018 is disconcerting for anyone who supports human rights for all humans. It has been more than 70 years since the Human Rights were declared. Why haven't we managed to safeguard everyone's Human Rights? The world seem to be full of malevolent and ignorant people who don'...

Thanks for letting me know.

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

In the beginning- Anyone who knows anything about astronomy knows that in the beginning the universe was a sea of hydrogen with a pinch of helium. Where did all those elements like carbon, calcium, oxygen, etc. that make up planets and our bodies come from? Simply put, the hydrogen formed stars whi...

Please see https://www.scientificamerican.com/arti ... physiology Has anyone here had their genes analysed? Have you found it helpful? Is it worth the money spent?

Re: Are you a vegan? If not, why not?

Well, those are pretty loaded options, aren't they, Compassionist? How about adding (in no particular order): * I have the alimentary canal and dentition of an omnivore. * I find that a balanced high-protein, low carb diet is easier to achieve if I eat animal products. * I care about environment-da...

Re: Are you a vegan? If not, why not?

None of those options applied to me, I felt. I've been a vegetarian for over half my 60+ years. There was a time when I would probably have liked to be a vegan but it always seemed like a lot of hard work and with the possibility of health issues if I wasn't careful, so I felt that being vegetarian...

Are you a vegan? If not, why not?

I was raised to be an omnivore. I first became a vegan on 1 August 2006 but I was unable to sustain it due to my ignorance. However, I became a vegan again in 2010 and again failed. Then I tried again from 4 January 2018. Apart from rare exceptions when I gave in to eating milk chocolate or dairy ic...

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

Yesterday I forgot to tell you that in the Bible God says that all the gays must be killed! That means that 80% of the Vatican priests must be terminated! Many penguins and other animals would have to be slaughtered too! :hilarity: :hilarity: :hilarity: :hilarity: :hilarity: I find it very sad that...

Re: Humans should go vegan

Dear Compassionist, You ask me why I wont convert to Vegan. First you tell me why I shouldn't swat flies, mosquitoes, bedbugs, cockroaches, etc. I think Noah made a mistake when took all these onto his Ark. I would have let them all perish in the great flood! :) :) I just want to understand your po...

Re: Religion and happiness

Dear Compassionist, You are right again. There are at least a thousand gods worshipped on Earth alone. Now all Gods are narcissistic. If you don't worship them you will burn in Hell fire for eternity. However, all Gods are also jealous.(See the Ten Commandments for an example) If you happen to wors...

Re: Humans should go vegan

Dear Compassiuonist, I agree with you on most issues but I won't convert to vegan. I also have no compassion for flies, mosquitos, bedbugs, etc. and am sorry that Noah took them onto his ark to save them! I didn't even know that there was a Jainism before you mentioned it. It is one of the oldest r...
