Hello

Post by Sunflowers » Fri Jul 19, 2019 9:22 pm

Hi,

I've been a vegetarian for 23 years (and I don't each much dairy, I just indulge occasionally).

I am interested in all areas of philosophy, especially ethics (hence why I have joined).

I am not religious, but I do think a god exists.

Hey Sunflowers! Don't feel too bad about indulging in dairy from time to time, as long as you recognize the issues with it, and don't actively consume it.

What inspired you to go vegan?

Welcome Sunflowers.

23 years is a very long time to be a vegetarian. I'm just curious what has kept you from becoming vegan. If you only rarely consume dairy, it can't be that important to you.

What do you mean by "a god"?

Congratulations, unless you are a complete idiot you are now a vegan.
