We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals.  Animals suffer as much as we do.  True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them.  It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it.  Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace. 
~Albert Schweitzer,
The Philosophy of Civilization






Autumn Comments & Graphics


Whenever I get fed up with all the paranoia, woo and pseudoscience filling up the C2NN (which is too often), I read these blogs - recommended for anyone with even half a brain to think with:

Science Based Medicine

Respectful Insolence

Pharyngula

Depleted Cranium

What/who changed my life and why A documentary on whaling I saw on tv when I was about 6 yrs. old. It was the very first moment when it became painfully clear to me how cruelly people really treat animals - and the first time I made a donation to an animal welfare organization. (With some help from my father.) Of course there have been other turning points in my life as well - learning to read with Walt Disney comics (in the age of three), meeting my partner, studying abroad, continuing my studies in a different field...

Quotation Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it. - Buddha
