It’s interesting that two totally different people can follow completely divergent paths to reach the same conclusion. Lately I’ve been posting about hunters whose sense of self-entitlement was rooted in Christian beliefs. For instance, the Bonus Fallacy in Top Ten Retorts to Hunter Fallacies is, “God put Animals here for us to use.”
But today I received a comment from a hunter troll boasting that she’s an atheist. Like all other comments from hunters trying to justify their pastimes, it was not approved. Once you feed a troll, you can never get rid of them. But since she brought up the inarguable fact that not all killers use religion to justify their actions, I’m posting it here for your perusal:
“I’m an atheist and I love hunting. So it isn’t silly god reasons. Hunting regulations and conservation maintain the populations and of course meat isn’t sustainable for the world’s population, but thankfully we have goofy vegetarians. But yeah, I just love killing them and eating them. They are so delicious and tasty. For me, it’s that wonderful reminder that human beings are primitive and inferior, and I have no delusions about our meaningless existence. I can has retort, now?”
No, sorry, I’m fresh out of retorts. You’ll have to troll somewhere else for an argument to that one.
