We Need to Answer This - Get the Question out There

I want you to take a minute to think about how you are going to answer the following question, or how you do answer it if you have thought about it already.  

How are we going to address other sentient beings and their interests?  This is a question that everyone should consider, as it is a HUGELY important question to think about and answer consistently!  Think about it!  We are talking about how we are going to treat tens upon tens of billions (probably trillions; I can't really count that high anyway) of other beings and WHY.   Has it ever been good enough to say that I will not even attempt to answer that question?  Has it ever been good enough to say that I won't even attempt to be reasonable?  Let us hope not for fellow human beings.  There are some questions that we do not know the answers to, but those are often physical, metaphysical, or ontological questions.  This question is ethical, and easily comprehensible. What are we going to do now that we know that animals are sentient?  Some people in the past may have argued that animals are sentient, and hey they were right; however, some of the evidence is, relatively speaking, quite new.  The question cannot be avoided.  It is out there. 

For vegans the answer is clear and logically consistent; granted no one is perfect, but veganism shows an earnest attempt to try to improve, and provides an approach that does not simply disregard the interests of other sentient beings.

What are other possible consistent replies to this question?  I have never seen a nonvegan argument that provides a consistently logical answer to the question of how we should address other sentient life.  The question is out there.  Answer it ...

Look at the PAGES!

Hey and welcome to my blog! I just want to give you a little tip; I know ... it is so soon ;)

I just wanted to let you know that the bulk of information on this site is not contained in the blogroll, or the posts.  Whether you are a vegan looking for a solid resource or an omnivore who does not want to be illogical, or you are just plain old interested in the logic of veganism, LOOK AT THE PAGES!



GO TO THE PAGES!   That's where the best and most updated information is!

Cool?  You got it?

New Layout

Now, I know have many many followers at this point, so many in fact that the counter on the site can't even keep up.  Yeah, I know, I am quite modest, but despite my following I have decided to make a change in the layout of my blog.  Previously I had figured that I would put the main Vegan moral argument on the main post page, and just leave it like that. Doing so would make the argument easily accessible to anyone, at anytime;  however, that means that I can never really post, and that's no fun.  So I decided to make a separate page for arguments that help support veganism.

The pages will then, contain a great amount of the most meaningful content.  If you want to seem common missteps in logic or ways to support your position or change your position to fit logic then check out the other pages (not posts) on this site.

My hope is to provide a resource that allows people to quickly reference the logic or illogic of thoughts and positions surrounding veganism.

I'm sure this all way too exciting for you right now, but hey, life can be just that good. See ----------->
