Plants too are hurted while harvesting?

I had a conversation with one of my friends on veganism. He kept on making a silly argument that as a human, vegans too hurt plants while harvesting. In that sense, hurting animals shouldn't be an…Continue

I would love to think there was some greater being up there looking down on life as we know it but I must say that by allowing the human race so much power and doing so little to curb it's rush to destroy all in its path blindly makes me wonder whether any such entity could be considered 'good'.

Agnostic but I'm not going to sit here and bash religions either, lol. Hopefully we can extend our compassion to people who think differently, and not resort to judging them based off of spiritual beliefs. I've formerly been... a lot of things. I love studying different religions, though I subscribe to none.

I lean towards pantheism as well. I've always respected and admired nature but only recently began feeling anything on a spiritual level. I was agnostic or atheist until now. One of the things that made it impossible for me to believe in an omnipotent god is the torture animals endure at the hands of humans - I would imagine a lot of vegs feel the same way.

After having been inactive on this site for a while, the year end message from Xiao prompted me to get back online.  A discussion on 'Animal Souls' prompted me to post a response there with a link to an essay I wrote several years ago for the Humane Society of the United States.  I post the link here as a way of introduction.

I've often thought of myself as a militant agnostic: I don't know and you don't either.

I like to think that I have progressed over the years from a position of militant anti-theism following the discovery of my atheism to one of supportive humanism.  With every passing year, the technical claim of agnosticism becomes infinitely remote even though some of our most vocal atheists (like RIchard Dawkins) prefer the term to allay charges of dogmatism.  An extremely important resource for those wanting to encourage others to review their own consumption is http://www.humaneeducation.org

I would consider myself Agnostic. On what level or what type I am currently not so sure, but I feel like I would be any one of these if not all; Atheist, Apatheist, and/or Ignostic.
