I see far too many heartbreaking stories regarding human-animal relations, so it’s quite a breath of fresh air to hear today’s news!

More than 1100 former egg-laying hens, who were set to be slaughtered because they were “spent” (no longer producing a satisfactory/profitable quantity of eggs), were rescued and flown across the country to Farm Sanctuary where they will run free and receive veterinary care before traveling on to the many sanctuary and rescue partners that have stepped up to provide forever homes to these sweet ladies.

Darwin was about to become a minister of the Church of England when the opportunity to sail on the H.M.S. Beagle presented itself. His religious ideas, as he himself described them, were at the time highly conventional. He found every one of the Anglican Articles of Faith entirely believable.

Through his interrogation of Nature - through science - it slowly dawned on him that at least some of his religion was false. That’s why he changed his religious views.
