Re: Should our actions be aligned with our moral values

Thanks, Jebus. The question for me, as I guess it is for most vegans, is, how come I'm more compassionate than most of my friends? Why do I care what happens to animals, when they - self-professed animal lovers - don't seem to. I'm well aware of the cognitive dissonance at work - I suffered from it ...

Should our actions be aligned with our moral values

Hi folks That's the topic for this week's discussion in the Enquiring Minds session I facilitate, this coming Thursday. You may have guessed I chose the topic. Does anyone have any suggestions - any authorities I could quote, any websites that would help me in getting the best out of it? I would app...

Our origins? Evolutionary chance or purposeful design?

This is the topic for discussion at our Enquiring Minds group - this Thursday morning, so I haven't given you a lot of time. Checking online most, if not all, of the results, lead to religious sources. IME, atheists consider this a non-subject, we've already decided that Intelligent Design is a nons...

Re: What causes most harm in the world? But is completely avoidable.

Thanks, cornivore. I was looking for a succinct response, and yours is certainly that. Thanks for pointing that out, brim. That's often over-looked. I was able to expound at length on violence to the animals and the earth. I made the point (can't remember who came up with this, Earthling Ed, perhaps...

Re: Too Much Seitan?

Seitan not tasty? Whatever planet are you on? I've made seitan scores of times and it's never been less than tasty. Here are my tips for dead easy seitan: All I do nowadays is to weigh off the leftover stew - today around 350g, then estimate how much wheat gluten I'll need - and I went for 150g. To ...

Re: 16/8 Intermittent Fasting Worth It?

Hi Lucy The good folk over at Mumsnet have been investigating - and practicing - IF for about 6 years, now, ever since the BBC Horizon programme on the subject was aired. https://www.mumsnet.com/Talk/fasting_diet/3272064-5-2-Thread-No-78-Welcome-to-our-friendly-support-group-to-help-you-become-a-lea...

What causes most harm in the world? But is completely avoidable.

Hi folks This is the topic for this coming Thursday's discussion/philosophy group. It's a pretty large subject, and hard to pin down to a single link. My take on it is that whatever contributes to GW/CG causes the most harm, and it's avoidable. So animal husbandry will come up - harm to the environm...

Sanctimonious vegans would do well to think about their diet’s global impact

Read more at: https://inews.co.uk/opinion/ In our discussion group this morning, the topic was: "What's good for the planet is good for us" When I brought up the fact that the best thing we could all do for the planet (and our health - and the animals) was to go vegan, one of our members bought up t...
