CMP (Canadian Mind Products)’s purpose is to stand up for the rights of plants and animals. Animals also includes cetacea, humans, gay people, atheists, war victims and invertebrates. CMP attempts to inculcate planetary consciousness — concern for the planet as a whole. A subgoal is to teach people to use computers effectively, particularly with the Java computer language.

The Cause Of Misery

Let’s say you talk to a group of people about the misery in Africa including hunger and disease (malaria, AIDS, Ebola…). You ask people what is the cause of this misery and what could be done about it. The Christians in the group will tell you something like this: This is God’s will. It is not clear to us, but this suffering is for the greater good. Jesus suffered on the cross for our sins. (What the crucifixion has to do with the price of eggs baffles me.)

The Atheists will tell you something like this: This is a legacy of colonialism. Government corruption is stealing any money to work on these problems.

You ask what should we do about it. The Christians respond We must pray. We have to make sure every African owns a bible and is baptised. There is no point opposing God’s will directly. We have to fight sin so the Africans will no longer deserve this suffering. Atheists might say something like I think Bill Gates is on the right track. You need a vertically-integrated approach. Anything requiring government co-operation will be hijacked by corruption.

The problem clearly then is Christians are in charge of the world, and they insist on taking no practical action.

Republican Rights for Animals

If Republicans ever become interested in animal rights, their family values concerning abortion and the age of consent could morph into a zealous campaign to ban egg-eating and consuming poultry that did not die of old age.

Right to Interfere

The difference in the atheist and Christian view of euthanasia is simple. Atheists believe they should not interfere in the end-of-life decisions of Christians, no matter how bat-shit-crazy they think they are. Christians believe they are everyone’s mother and as such have the right to override any end-of-life decisions an atheist makes.
