Do you even circus?
Well, the circus is in town and the only people on my facebook who are going are christian. Gen 1:26 talks about man having dominion over the animals. I would assume that's why http://www.ringlingbeatsanimals.com doesn't bother them.

So I wondered if atheists, who usually think things through and investigate, attend the circus.

I know atheism only covers, "Do you believe in god/s?" but I thought I'd give it a try.

I did too. Lots of fun memories. That was a hard decision to make when my 3 yo wanted to go.

I went a few years ago with my niece and nephew and had a blast. Most of the circus acts are not Animal acts (really only 2 out of the entire show I saw) but rather Human performers so I don't see it as that big a deal.

I went once, I never want to go back again, it was creepy and awful... and boring. I hate the circus.

Except the cirque du soleil, those mutants can fly!!

I haven't gone to a circus that has animals since I was a kid. It's the only way to keep myself out of jail. If I went now, I'd probably be arrested for assaulting (aka, beating the ever loving shit out of) those assholes.

Sorry. I feel kinda strongly about the circus. Seen some ugly things first hand.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

I would go to Circus Vargus they no longer use animals in their acts.

I have issues even with elephants in zoos -- so ya I'd avoid a circus.

Proverbs 12:10 says, "The righteous care for the needs of their animals, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel."

I think you are confused PJ. I'm pretty sure you're the only one who give a squirt of piss what Proverbs says.
