In honesty, no one really would be able to tell how the world will be in ten years. Sure, we could guess and estimate as much as we want, but think about it. Fifty years ago, blacks weren't allowed in the same schools as whites. A hundred years ago, there weren't computers. Things have come a long way. Blacks used to be treated as animals are treated today. You never know how things might go.
Wow, I've never heard anyone say that's uncommon. Well, I too am a single, liberal atheist (vegan rather than vegetarian), but perhaps it's because all are minorities, when you think about it (at least where I'm from). Most people are not liberal, most people are not vegetarian, most people are not atheist. So to find someone who is all three I suppose could be an uncommon thing.

That's a very good point... I was also atheist for years before going veg.

This is really helpful. I'm a creature of habit, unfortunately, so even a mock hamburger without mayo and cheese just doesn't feel the same. I've been looking for alternatives to things like mayo, eggs, and butter for a while. I don't think there are any really good vegan egg alternatives (that I've found, anyway).
I wonder why it is that so many vegetarians/vegans are also agnostics/atheists. It could just be that both groups are more progressive thinkers.
For me, I was raised in a Christian family my whole life and started questioning religion only two years ago, around when I was fifteen or sixteen. The decision was easy once I thought about it. Atheism was the way for me.
I was also raised in a me
