I'm green, vegetarian, left-wing (naturally),atheist (actually, this changes from day today. currently, I'm an agnostic, because. . . how can one deny the existence of god without falling into the trap of religion? and don't forget, we must keep seperate in our minds the idea of religion and the idea of god. it's woth a lot of thought), would-be animal liberationist, anti-vivisectionist and wish I'd lived through the 60s.
