Why would you be sorry someones an Atheist? Are you sorry some people are Muslims? Neither one would be any of your business.

Okay, sorry but I think that is a little out of line. This is a forum about horses, not religion. That's why we are all here, to talk about horses and gain better insight on a range of different topics. Let's try and keep this on topic here, vs. being sorry for someone when they may not want your pity to begin with.

Whoah... So much I want to say in response to this, but in the interests of not getting this thread locked and not getting TOO far off topic... I won't. Suffice to say that I (and most atheists, I would guess) do NOT want pity and are very happy with the life and choices they have made. I'm very happy to live my life accountable to myself only.

In regards to PETA... I think they spend a lot of time bad mouthing and spouting propaganda that could more usefully be used to actually help make a difference. There is definitely a fanatical section of PETA, and they scare the bajeebers out of me.

PETA presents an entirely one-sided view to the public on many subjects, for example mulesing, which I know a lot about, and Rodeo, just to name a few. A lot of people mention that their horses seem quite happy when being ridden/handled etc, and PETA replies with "did the horse tell you that itself? You CAN'T be sure what your horse is feeling" and to me that works both ways. If we can't be sure our horses are happy then they surely can't be sure they are unhappy... Duh.

I hate PETA with a burning passion. I'm totally against animal abuse, don't get me wrong, but PETA is insane!! They escalate everything to an unbelievable level and blow everything out of proportion! And my Lord those quotes?? Sheesh! Who says that?! I'm sorry to all of you who support PETA, I just think that they're very very extreme.

woah. Excuse me.

Now listen, I don't want this to get this thread locked. You steped out of line in the beggining, im just expressing my views.

But ill let you know that im glad im an Atheist. Just the same way you are glad to have 'found god', or whatever it is you believe in. Its kinda like saying "oh, im sorry your jewish." or "sorry to hear your a muslim. Sucks that you don't believe what I believe. So it must be wrong." its not that 'i havn't gotten a connection with god' or that 'i worship the devil'. I don't follow christianity. I believe in theory, in evolution, in reason, in science. Just like you believe in an all powerful being (or whatever you believe in. I am not jumping to conclusions.)

It was my choice, and I will stay this way.

I accept your apology, by the way. :)

Anyway, in regards to PETA.

Honestly, they drive me up the wall. It sickens me that these people would harm, kill, and distroy the lives of other human beings inorder to save one chicken (foul, cow, whatever).

I'm sorry too, Brumby, but I will not discuss in this thread what I am sorry about. =P

I'm just glad to hear that this forum isn't ran by Wackos! I wouldn't post in this forum if it was ran by PETA loving freaks, no offense to any of the PETA loving freaks in here.

And Go the Distance, I may be wrong but I thought Atheism was where you didn't believe in a higher being but it was Scientology that believes in evolution and science. Who knows maybe they're the same thing. Sorry if that was off topic.

I'm my spare time I ride dragons and runners, practice my Harper skills, talk to dolphins and hang with MasterHarper Robinton.

Ever notice people that call others names are the ones that get the most upset when they think someones is calling them names? I don't think I've seen a thread with so much hatred in it.

listen. Please just let it go. Its my choice, not yours, and really none of your business. Wild Spot hit the nail right on the head, thank you. Never did I ever say anything belittling to you, or to whatever religion you follow. (thanks for adding an inaccurate statement, county. ) its my decision, and im very happy with the life I lead, and what I believe in. I take so much crap for it on almost a daily basis. I certainly do not need it here.

I agree with manhirwen, I was a little skeptical about the people here when I started, you never know who is online! Im glad to hear that alot of the people here share the same outlook on PETA.

I wasn't talking about you or any choices you make Go The Distance if you see yourself in my post that's 100% your deal.
