|Seal Hunt||The Canadian commercial seal hunt is a barbaric bloodlust ritual where baby seals are beaten to death with spiked clubs and also skinned alive, all for no economic benefit. Its motive is simple sadism. 2014-04-16|
|Cetacean Intelligence||Cetaceans (Whales and dolphins) are intelligent. I give mostly personal experiences as evidence. This issue is particularly important because members of the Makah Indian band in Washington state have revived the ancient religious rites of whale sacrifice. The Makah along with most people are convinced that whales are just big cows and so it is perfectly OK to kill them. 2014-04-16|
|Free Range Eggs||The case for buying free range eggs in preference to factory eggs. 2014-04-16|
|Quotations about Animal Rights||Quotations about Animal Rights, animal cruely, animal intelligence. 2014-04-16|
|Animal Slaves||Modern day animals are treated with much the same disdain slaves were in past. We will have an awakening to that suffering. 2014-04-16|
|Whale Torture||The US Navy is using low frequency sounds millions of times louder than considered safe for human divers. These are tormenting whales driving them to suicide. 2014-04-16|
|Protest Japanese Whale Hunting||Japan kills 90 whales a year in the name of research, and sells the carcasses as food. The Japanese Mitsubishi Electric plans a salt plant that will send gray whales into extinction. 2014-04-16|
|Protest Makah Whale Hunting||Members of the Makah Indian band in Washington state want to revive the ancient religious rites of whale sacrifice, only now using high power boats and high power weapons. The point of the exercise is not money or food, but to improve their self esteem. Why not revive the rites of human sacrifice while you are at it? 2014-04-16|

|Whale Sacrifice Banned||Sanity has prevailed and the Makah gray whale hunt in the USA has been banned. 2014-04-16|
|Dolphin Slaughter||The Japanese are about to slaughter 17,000 dolphins. We stopped the Makah’s lunacy. Surely we can also wake up the Japanese to the stupidity and cruelty of what they are doing. 2014-04-16|

Measuring ConsciousnessHow can you tell if a creature is conscious? You can tell if it is not conscious if it does not react to stimulus, but even a plant reacts to stimulus (albeit slowly). You know that you are conscious, and presumably other humans are the same, but everything else, you are just guessing until we find some way to measure or detect consciousness. What bothers me is so many scientists claim such and such a creature is or is not conscious. How could they possibly tell?
