I attended a free screening of a new documentary entitled Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret the other day. It argues that the largest contributor to forest depletion and environmental unsustainability is our consumption of meat and dairy products. That's why I've dramatically reduced my meat consumption over the past few years to almost nothing, with my eventual goal of becoming a vegan. It will be hard, but it can be done. What motivates me, besides the animal cruelty occurring on factory farms, are the facts contained in the documentary about just how bad our consumption of meat and dairy products are having on the environment.

Welcome to Atheism and the City. This blog is about exploring atheism through contemporary urban living. I live in New York City, the secular metropolis, and I have an avid interest in all things religion, science, philosophy, politics, and economics. I am an atheist, a humanist, a philosopher and a thinker, and the purpose of Atheism and the City is to write about my thoughts and experiences on the subjects and topics that I have a passion for. Feel free to respond to any post whether or not you agree.
