A person should be balanced, not in one extreme or another, I think.


Scepcop, this reminds me of something my dad used to say, a saying I think might have come from the story Shangri-La. He said,

"Everything in moderation, including moderation itself."

And to confess as many in this thread have, I am a fake vegetarian. I have done a lot of traveling in the US and elsewhere and am perfectly happy to eat vegetarian although I won't turn down meat. When I traveled in the US I was a fake vegetarian for years because I could not store meat. It was a matter of storage, not a philosophical decision. Thus, I call myself a fake vegetarian.

I'm a hunter and I consider myself to be an animal lover.

I see no contradiction there.

I enjoy some vegetarian dishes but I don't make an ideology out of it.

Hunting is a sport of ethics and sport hunting is a practice which benifits the natural world.

For whatever reasons, (probably not very good reasons) the skeptic movement seems to have taken a somewhat strong stance against the animal rights movement. Episode number 167 of the Skeptic's Guide to the Universe had a section that was anti-PETA. More recently - so did P. Z. Myers:

I know that this is not a paranormal subject, but neither is bigfoot or homeopathy. There are many different ideas that are harshly condemned by the skeptic movement. If we are going to beat them back, as well as promote open-minded thinking, we need to try to protect as many alternative ideas as possible from the attacks of the skeptic movement.


you ignorance about skepticism is incredible
i do not support animal cruelty
i just think people like PETA and ELF
are just a bunch of hipocritical idiots

but since you are the antiskeptic
you lack the tools of critical thinking and cant see the big picture
go back to your coloring books
