Oh please, not the same old "the bible is book of myths created by people to control others" argument. That is like high schooler argument that has been put to rest time and time again.
Let's stick to relevant on topic comments rath than rants about your religious conspiracy theories.
I think the arguments presented here very interesting, however to use evolutionary theory and homology as a means to infer that humans are in fact meant to be herbivores seems like a specious argument.
One could just as easily theorize that humans were once carnivorous in some way as well but once they evolved opposing thumbs their need to chase their prey down and immobilize it, kill with bare hands and mouth, and tear the flesh off became of tens of millions of years much less important. This of ourselves is because they could use a spear, I imagine lots easier than chasing down a will boar on fool and lurching after it. And create knives fashioned from obsidian to scalp, and filet the beast. The end is result is that over evolutionary time the skeletal artifacts of became nothing more than vestigial remnants.
Survival of the fittest right? Adaptation, natural selection. If in fact evolutionary theory is true, then no one can possibly argue that eating flesh of any sort is wrong because the blind random chance of the evolutionary mechanism gave homo sapiens the ability to procure food of various types and in myriad ways.
Right on veggie gal. Everything about this film reals like a tabloid. To pull off a conspiracy like 9-11 would require liter ally hundreds if no thousands of participants. Nixon couldn't even pull off wategate, what makes anyone think Bush (who most regard as an idiot) could pull off something this huge? It just stupid to believe.
And if you don't buy that why would you think any of the bits about Freemasons and Judaism and Chsristianity is correct?
The whole argument oresented here is that since there were previous stories that were kinda like the coming, death, and resurrection of Jesus that predate Jesus that in fact Christianity must be false. How does that follow?
To give an example, in 1898 there was a fictional book called Futility written by Morgan Robertson. It told the tale of the largest ship ever made hitting an iceberg in the titanic on a cold April night. The ship was described as unsinkable and the name of the ship in the book was "Titan".
On April 15th at 2:20 am in 1912 a massive unsinkable ship, the largest ever built struck and icebg and sank. However, by the logic of the Zeitgeist creators we should summarily dismiss this story because there was a novel that described the same thing, kinda, and so this can't be true.
"Humans started out vegetarian and moved in an omnivorous direction."
And your proof for that is what? If evolution is true we all started from precisely the same origin: primordial soup.
I believe you missed my point. I will state it as a couple of syllogisms.
If evolution is true
All living things evolved
Humans are living things
Therefore Human beings evolved
If something is random or chance driven it has no moral or intelligent cause
Evolution has no purpose/design (it is just random chance and mutation)
How living things evolve are a function of random chance/mutation
Therefore, a function of a living thing (e.g. eating meat) cannot not be argued on moral grounds or intellectual grounds since chance produced the function
Ultimately we can't argue as Vegans that eating meat is "wrong" if we also contend that evolution is true (as this author does). Since from an evolutionary standpoint there is no right or wrong just chance, therefore we can't even argue that humans are "designed" to be herbivores since evolution can't *design* anything. It is like assigning certain lego blocks to a numeric value and rolling a 20-sided dice to pick which blocks to put together. Would you call the resulting object a designed thing?

Isn't it funny how you can use information to get whatever results you like. The website www.second-opinions.co.uk/carn_herb_comparison4.html also uses anatomical features to compare man, dog and sheep to conclude that we are carnivores and shouldn't eat any veggies! But when you read down the list, some of the evidence includes that we don't need to chew our food and that it is impossible to survive without animal protein. No wonder they had putrefactive bacteria and small firm faeces (sorry, have to look at that site to know what i am talking about)
I like the conclusions on this site much better because they promote vegetarianism, but it would be great if there was a link to some of the raw data- like the actual lengths of the intestines of different animals, their stomach pH etc.
Nearly always when I hear about evolution it is from the past to the present, but doesn't consider the future. Even if humans were meat eaters in the past or present, we are still in the process of evolution. Just look around and compare the "meat head" mentality and intelligence level with the radiance of people who eat a balanced plant based diet with plenty of raw foods. Which direction to we want to be heading in? I think the yogis were onto something when they categorized foods according to their effect on the mind.
I think it's extraordinary to consider our DNA is being compromised by the dairy /meat industries. That is really frightening, to think the basics of human nature is being distorted by drinking milk. Thank you sir.
