Fish Do Feel Pain – 10 December 2008

“Fish make vibratory sounds with various ‘calls’ that researchers have identified as communicating alarm and aggravation. They possess fully formed nervous systems as well as complex social behaviors. They are also capable of learning complicated tasks. British researchers discovered in 2003 that fish have cerebral mechanisms to feel pain. As one animal activist once put it, “Fish are not merely vegetables that can swim.”

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
