Members: 265
Latest Activity: Nov 5, 2016


HUMANE ATHEISTS is for anyone interested in issues surrounding animal welfare and animal rights. You don't have to be a pet lover, a vegetarian, or an activist to join. You just have to like exploring new ideas and sharing information about the relationships between animals and people, and how we should or should not treat them.

I welcome posts on personal experiences, news and inspirational stories, action alerts, ethical questions, humane living options such as products and websites, and related topics.

I look forward to your contributions, and I hope that we can make HUMANE ATHEISTS one of the most active and vital groups on Atheist Nexus.

"Wild animals never kill for sport. Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself."
—James A. Froude, English historian (1818–1894)

The main thing that needs to change are people's perception of how the animals are treated and the suffering they endure. I can't begin to tell you just how many people had absolutely no idea what is truly going on. so many were "shocked" That has to change.

here in California, we did manage to win Prop 2

There was a huge turn out at the volunteer meetings. I was able to get pages of signatures to get the proposition on the ballot, then I passed out fliers, had a bumper sticker on my car, and spoke to everyone I encountered about it. It was a big one. A fabulous step in the right direction. I won't see what I want to see in my lifetime, but slowly (extremely slowly) I'm seeing a bit of change.

Norwegian Cows…NOT California Cows, Are Truly Happy Cows

OSLO (Reuters) – Comfortable Norwegian cows are producing more milk and have less udder infections since new regulations allowing them to relax for up to half a day on soft rubberized mattresses were introduced.

In 2004, Norway introduced rules to replace gradually all sheds where cows are kept in stalls with ones that allow them to move more freely and lie down on a softer surface.

“They lie about half of the day, which is natural for them,”
