    Baby brontosauruses, of course. That's why there are only bones left...

    • I will attempt to address the original question. Yes, the bible clearly states that Christians should eat bread. Eating primal/paleo is incompatible with Christian faith. Jesus said nothing about trans fat, high fructose corn syrup, or processed foods in general but if I may hazard a guess, I suggest Christ would of wanted his followers to indulge in those substances as well.

      Jesus had some profound ideas about life and how to treat others, but he wasn't up to speed on ideal macronutriet ratios, dissecting scientific studies, and the debate about cholesterol. Personally, I don't hold it against him. Hey, none of us can be good at everything. If He is Risen (and I say he is risen indeed) I'll bet it has more to do with a divinely efficient digestive system than a divinely inspired diet. His bread-eating followers, on the other hand, may not feel like getting up off the couch anytime soon. Oh well. You have to make sacrifices for your faith.

          I think a bot can neither be childish nor adult-like.

            +1... i'm surprised this is at 17 pages, but these types of threads usually grow quicker than the others.

            I find this whole topic ironic when it's posted on these boards. Doesn't the bible and anything "paleo" contradict each other anyway?

            And the below, which would imply evolution ... (love the dinosaur part btw)

              • You can claim not to be a zealot, but when talking about religion you intentionally downplay it by calling it a fairy tale, or some condescending effect thereof. I'm not religious, or a believer, but I don't understand why you can't have respect for someone else as a human being not to think of them as a lesser person. It's pretty disrespectful to see the way atheists address everyone religious as if believing in nothing automatically makes them a better person lel.

                Reality is depressing, what's wrong with wanting to believe in a little magic? I'm sure all of you have experienced some from of phenomena that you couldn't explain. Sure, it's likely you can explain away everything via some chemical reaction, but it's comforting to have an imagination and let your mind wander a bit to traverse unknown terrain that you can't explain away with science.

                Have you ever fallen madly in love with one person out of billions and thought you saw the face of God in them? That first glance when you lock eyes with them, it's kind of magical. Dunno just rambling now.

                I agree though that more rational, critical thinking people are rarely religious or believers. I can't trick myself into actually thinking anything in the bible is more than a story and furthermore unlikely any sort of deity actually exists. It flies in the face of everything I know.

                • There, I said it. I absolutely 100% agree with Derp.
                  You gotta believe in something. Imo doesn't have to conform with particular religion or movement. Reality is too depressing, indeed.

                  • I don't think reality is depressing at all. I think it's awesome and wonderful. I can and do have all that awe and wonder all without feeling the need for a creator.

                      Well, not everyone is you and has inherited what you have and thus has time to relax and enjoy themselves. Unfortunately most of my life is spent slaving away for some asshole to make money to survive and it's unlikely in this dismal state that I'll ever be able to retire and find time to spend in wonder in my big San Diego condo.

                      When I look around I see pollution, idiots and zombies, and nothing wondrous or awe-inspiring. Unless you like urban terrain and litter. Oh, and tons of homeless people and gangs who have lost their minds.

                      People control my life, I'm everything I hate about everyone else ^-^ So, yeah, for the vast majority of us reality is kinda depressing.

                        So you're a reluctant atheist defending religion on the patronizing grounds of it's quaint?

                        The problem with the comparison is that nobody ever used Little Red Riding Hood to justify the Crusades (or September 11th or the violence in Palestine or Ireland if you want to pick some contemporary examples).

                        As I said earlier, what I take issue with is justifying decision-making based on the fairy tales. The original post implied that we should eat grains because Jesus talked about bread. That is worthy of ridicule, even if it doesn't make you feel warm or fuzzy inside. Why should certain preposterous beliefs be beyond scrutiny just because they relate to the origin of the world?

                          This! Nature is awe inspiring all on it's own. I don't need to be religious to be amazed by a thunderstorm or rendered speechless by a sunset. Studying how it all works just makes it take on a whole new level of awesome. The natural doesn't need a supernatural explanation to be any more splendid than it already is.

                              The OP is a moron, nothing he says should have any merit whatsoever. I'm simply defending other people for their right to choose.

                              I'm not an atheist, I already told you my stance earlier.
