Haha! Truth is, for long I didn’t know either! It was after much soul-searching (and wikipedia’ing and researching neopaganism) that I found out Pantheism! I find it hard to believe in organised religion- not for lack of trying XD- and this resonates within me strongly! =) You’re welcome! =)
Hi! It’s the belief that the Universe is divine inherently, and that there is no need to introduce a/any “personal” deity(ies) for all things- living and not- are beautiful and consubstantial with the building blocks of the Cosmos and thus everything and everyone is connected to each other, and by extension, divine. =) I believe that we are in essence indistinguishable from each other. =) I worship Nature, in a matter of speaking! =D
These links are worth following - interesting info on chickens’ personalities in the article on chicken behavior.
The animal products industry is not about your nutrition, they don’t care about your protein intake they only care about profit, and guess what happen when animals don’t make profit for them…
Please choose veganism today and help end such horrific violence!
*Even though the website at the link quotes Gary Francione, let it be known that I do not suppport him at all due to his horrible racism, ableism, and sexism. However, I still find this starter kit to be of value.
Pouring coke cola on raw meat (mostly pork, not sure about other kinds?) causes hidden maggots to surface. Obviously cooking properly would kill them anyway, but it’s pretty vile to imagine crunching and chewing your way through dead larvae.
(In case you’re wondering why there are maggots - meat is flesh, and flesh begins to rot as soon as the body is dead/the flesh is removed. So naturally, flies will want to lay eggs in it. Meat inspectors won’t catch everything - for example there are numerous reports of fish containing live or dead worms. It’s just one of those things if you eat rotting foods).
BREAKING NEWS: eating rotting flesh is fucking gross. also, the sky is blue and the ocean is made of water.
Why Finnish babies sleep in cardboard boxes
For 75 years, Finland’s expectant mothers have been given a box by the state. It’s like a starter kit of clothes, sheets and toys that can even be used as a bed. And some say it helped Finland achieve one of the world’s lowest infant mortality rates.
It’s a tradition that dates back to the 1930s and it’s designed to give all children in Finland, no matter what background they’re from, an equal start in life.
The maternity package - a gift from the government - is available to all expectant mothers.
It contains bodysuits, a sleeping bag, outdoor gear, bathing products for the baby, as well as nappies, bedding and a small mattress.
With the mattress in the bottom, the box becomes a baby’s first bed. Many children, from all social backgrounds, have their first naps within the safety of the box’s four cardboard walls.
Mothers have a choice between taking the box, or a cash grant, currently set at 140 euros, but 95% opt for the box as it’s worth much more.
The tradition dates back to 1938. To begin with, the scheme was only available to families on low incomes, but that changed in 1949.
Socialism at work.
I would rather my tax money pay for this than drone missiles.
