Peter Singer is an atheist philosopher and a professor at Princeton University. According to Wikipedia:
He is known in particular for his book, Animal Liberation (1975), a canonical text in animal rights/liberation theory.
Yes indeed. An atheist who promotes a secular form of ethics is the Father of the Animal Rights Movement. The Animal Rights Movement, in turn, has a history of attacking science and scientists and, unlike the creationists, have actually succeeded in thwarting the practice of science. Consider just the latest in a long list of examples:
MILAN — The head of pharmacology at Milan’s state university says a weekend break-in by animal rights activists who freed about 100 laboratory animals has cost years of research and hundreds of thousands of euros (dollars) in damage.
Prof. Francesco Scaglione said Tuesday the activists also mixed up cages, making it impossible to continue some experiments. Scaglione said most of the research is seeking treatments for brain diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Five animal rights activists who occupied the lab Saturday released about 100 of the 800 animals, mostly mice, while animal activists and lab supporters both demonstrated outside. Scaglione said his department plans to press charges for theft and trespassing, and to recover financial damages.
The activists said in a website post that their goal was to free the animals.
So the acolytes of atheist Peter Singer have destroyed years of scientific research. How nice. Imagine if a group of creationists broke into an evolutionary biology lab and destroyed years of research. Dawkins, Coyne, and Harris would be screaming this from the rooftops and the mainstream media would pick it up. But when a group spawned by atheistic ethics does real damage to science, they all remain silent.
Hmmmm. Wonder why that is. Don’t these self-appointed Defenders of Science want to defend science? Don’t you think it is time for someone to challenge atheist Peter Singer and his role in bringing about these attacks on science?
