Michael Shermer

Michael is an American science writer, historian of science, founder of The Skeptics Society, and editor-in-chief of its magazine "Skeptic". Michael is an advocate for naturalism and skepticism. While he has acknowledged that animal farming may come to be looked on by future generations as a moral abomination or holocaust, he continues to purchase and consume animal products.
From this 2016 Salon article: "Michael Shermer, author of 'The Moral Arc,' tweeted, 'Ugh. Watched The Earthlings last night researching moral progress. Feels like moral regress when it comes to animals,' as well as writing an article titled '“Confessions of a Speciesist.' However promising these signs were, sadly he has also admitted, 'No I’m not a vegetarian but think we should expand the moral sphere to include marine mammals and all primates as a good start.'"
