Our work focuses on confronting harmful beliefs and practices. Currently, our main focus is issues related to religious fundamentalism and animal exploitation.
Not everybody will comprehend your journey; some may even be offended. Weak minds are easily offended. Offending people is not my aim. I seek the truth.
“A tiger never loses sleep over the opinions of sheep.”
I certainly do not fear the opinions of those who ensnare people in harmful beliefs and practices.
There's a whole lot of shackling psychology going on in this mind of ours. Until the light comes on we are oblivious to the darkness. The light is new information, not the old repackaged. What you think you know can change when you come to know what you don't yet know. Education commences when you admit you are mistaken. You can only change if you expose yourself to new educators and wisdom. Education. Education. Education. I have a sneaky suspicion that the global community is progressing through education.
I'm often accused of questioning everything. Proudly guilty as charged. Investigate hungrily. Interrogate thoroughly. It's how I escaped the captivity of harmful beliefs and practices after being sentenced to life-imprisonment with no parole.
Some people think they have arrived at the ultimate truth. The truth is a journey, not a destination. Believe what you believe, but always with the humble attitude that you maybe be wrong or that your beliefs require tweaking.
There are things you once believed wholeheartedly, but today you have outgrown those beliefs. Could there be things you believe to be true today but one day you will discover there is a better way? The only way to uncover them is to expose yourself to new information.
Not dictating what to believe, but teaching how to think.
The debate between meat-eaters and vegans is littered with misinformation. Misinformation is at times funded by the meat and dairy industry to maintain profits. TV advertisements and product packaging showing happy cows and laughing chickens living the good life on farms are misrepresentations. Information in articles is frequently presented in a misleading manner. Fortunately, the information age makes it a challenge for everyone to be hoodwinked.
Numerous arguments seeking to clash with veganism are presented as if BAM that’s the end of veganism! Usually, they epitomize ignorance and human selfishness. Three popular reasons for being a vegan are compassion, health, and the environment. Veganism is not a religion; it is a common sense approach to sharing life on earth with all living animals.
Currently, we are working on articles, videos and interviews to spread the benefits of a vegan diet. Watch this space!
From a religious perspective, this website is for Christian’s as well as ex-Christians, ex-Christian fundamentalists, ex-Christian pastors and anyone who is asking the question, "Is Christianity real?" Masses are leaving Christianity, and you will discover many conversations across the internet on sites like ex-christian.net and other ex-Christian forums - there are tonnes of ex-Christian stories. Many are rethinking hell, rethinking Christianity and sincerely asking, "Is Christianity true?" Maybe you are someone who is doubting Christianity and desire to leave evangelical Christianity. Perhaps you are wondering how to leave religious Christianity. Leaving religious Christianity behind can be tough.
Simply put, I endeavour to inspire respect and collaboration between religious communities and fade the lines that divide. Specifically, I expound on the Bible, as a lay teacher, not a scholar, in a way that is hopefully more faithful to the various authors’ original intent. I also seek to contextualize its teachings in relation to the modern world.
Reforming the Christian Taliban can be tough. I often wonder how religion is so successful in trapping people. It seems to have an iron grip on their ability to think and reason. After watching a religious skit recently, I realized emotional blackmail is the primary tool utilized by religion.
The path from religious fundamentalism to freedom can be tough because of the rugged terrain and hardened layers that have to be dug through to unearth the diamonds that were buried within you. To add to the hardship fundamentalist 'friends' and family will drop you like a hot potato. The journey is well worth it. The freedom is breath-taking. The future looks bright. I'm not where I could be, but at least, I’m not where I used to be.
I'm not saying deny your experience. I'm saying maybe you can define, understand and explain it more accurately.
Together we can hatch an escape plan for you.
