Re: FREEGAN VEGAN BEEGAN'S!?

I think the concept of freeganism in regards to meat is okay with me. I only say this because I used to cook for a food bar and the amount of meat thrown away appalled me. I used to cook 200 whole rotisserie chickens a day!!! PLUS the chicken breasts and eggs that I used. It's really one of the majo...

Re: sentient

I am more interested in the differentiation between ganglia and a more complex nervous system. http://www.utilitarian-essays.com/insect-pain.html#section6 I fully realize that bugs are not plants but the analogy I was trying to make was survivability. In this case I think that the Descartes model of...

Re: Science's Metaphysical Assumptions?

I just try to reduce my assumptions. I think existence is an assumption. Science explains what is useful not necessarily what is real if that makes sense. That's why in debates I avoid the topic of evolution when combating anything in the realm of Atheism. I subscribe to the popeye theory "I yam wha...

Re: bible fallible or infallible.

"According to Matthew, Jesus was born during the reign of Herod the Great (Matthew 2:1). According to Luke, Jesus was born during the first census in Israel, while Quirinius was governor of Syria (Luke 2:2). This is impossible because Herod died in March of 4 BC and the census took place in 6 and 7 ...

sentient

So I keep running into an intellectual problem. It comes from no desire to consume any one product but more of a consistent morality question. 1. I work in a retail grocery store in the US. sometimes I have to go to the back of the fish section and see live crabs and lobsters in the back. I would be...

Re: bible fallible or infallible.

fallible-capable of making mistakes or being erroneous. To my mind it would seem based on the assertion of most christians that the bible is infallible is patently false. If there is one historical error it would seem that the bible is indeed fallible. In light of this I would like to point out that...

Re: Greetings From The Bible Belt

Sup bro! Glad to see a respectful theist here. I think the moderators are very fair here, so I hope you find our arguments at the very least intellectually stimulating. I have a theistic question that I hope we can discuss on another thread. If you are up for it I would like to open a thread on the ...

Re: butting heads with culture

Sometimes it works better if you order a meat meal with out the meat, you'll get the side dish the bread and veggies, just leave the meat and dairy/ eggs off! That makes it easier on the chef (they don't have to whip up something special) & you have a better idea of what it is you'll get... You can...
