Sylvia Earle, one of the leading marine biologists and ocean explorers of our time, has spent thousands of hours diving and knows a thing or two about the denizens of the deep. “I never eat anyone I know personally,” says Earle.

So....She only eats people she DOESN'T know personally????

I bet she's a lot of fun on a date. NOT!!!

Heres what they have to say about religion and fish (under frequently asked questions)

Didn’t Jesus eat fish?
It’s an interesting question, but Biblical scholars agree that the appropriate question for Christians is, “What should we be eating?” The Bible clearly says that our bodies are temples and that we should take care of them. Yet it’s a fact that all fish flesh today is contaminated with heavy metals and other toxins. In fact, fish flesh is just about the most polluted thing that humans put into their bodies. On that basis alone, Christians should not be eating it.

(So all other religions can I take it? Looks like its time to convert. And is it REALLY A FACT that all fish flesh is contaminated?? I think not.)

They later go on to say, "Today’s fishing practices are also horribly cruel to God’s creatures. God cares for all His creatures, and the Bible counsels compassion for all beings." ....(Ok, but they admitted Jesus ate fish. They contradict themselves in almost every other paragraph.)

I love reading the stuff on their pages just for entertainment value. I wish there was a way to publicly respond to them. They aren't even good at answering questions in a controlled environment, I would LOVE to see them answer questions publicly. It would be a slaughtering, pun intended.
