Re: Speciesism + Vivisection + Factory Farming

Well you asked for it. :D Overall: If you are criticizing something it is best to suggest alternatives, it lends much more weight to your argument if you can suggest how to implement your ideas. I know from my research on British animal testing law a lot of what you are mentioning under speciesism i...

I'm glad I don't have a TV. I don't have to worry about such things invading my life. Sometimes I think TV's feed off of peoples brains.

Re: Should creationists be given a platform?

I voted no bacause any view of creation with some evidence to support it bases creation around evolution (Evolution in this case being the way we see and describe gods work). Evolution is already taught and adding god is an unecesary addedum (In my opinion). For the young earth creationsist however ...

Re: Crucifixion

The bit that really bugs me with all these Cristians that crusify themselves or get the "wounds of christ" (Or whatever they call it) is that they always get it wrong. Crusifying by putting nails trough the hands and feet does not work, the bone structure is not strong enough to hold a person up. Th...

Re: The Natural World

I just get really pissed off by the irresponsibility of those who introduced them. Especially the farmers who did it in europe. It had already been determined that it is a very bad idea to introduce this species because it is so invasive but they did it anyway. And will they get any punishment for i...

Re: National DNA database

and for my second post; :D WARNING this post may get a little long. I think a large problem that people have with the DNA database is because of a misconception of what the DNA database will contain. The name implies that it will contain the full genetic sequnce of every person in the country. Howev...
