Are we really supposed to eat animals? Fruit seems a more natural choice

    Along the Equator, fruit is plentiful all year long.
    Was it during the last glacial?

It's very logical to think the original human diet was mostly made up of fruits and leaner, smaller game since that is what was available.

      If you want something that isn't human, look into green, leafy vegetables. Could you imagine ancient man expending hundreds of calories to come back with a couple heads of lettuce providing virtually no usable energy?
      Thank you! This is exactly what I was asking. It makes sense to me that humans were meant to live along the equator where fruit would be abundant all year long. What moved us away from the equator and put us in a position where we would need to hunt animals for survival? Is that move based in human error? Were we originally living along the equator with ample fruit and hunting down animals as well? If so, can we now evolve from that? I know it is not necessary for me to eat animals to thrive, but I do not know how I would feel on a diet of only fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds (with adequate calories).

              I reckon that the meat eaters would eventually slap the s*** out of the fruit eaters and take over the genome. And here we are
              I think physical strength comes from training and eating enough. You can get enough protein from vegan sources. Look at this guy: Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness

                No error here, I am living at 0-0-2 degree south, pretty close to the equator line and in Ecuador, and even if we have plenty of fruit and vegetables, there are almost no vegetarians here! At least I don't know any vegetarians... Humans thrives as omnivores, with plenty of animal protein in their diet..

                  Any vegan tribes would probably have been killed off by large cats or other apex predators because they had no hunting tools or skills to defend themselves.

                    Well that makes about zero sense. Apparently, if you don't hunt animals you have no idea how to protect yourself from them.

Surely hunting, killing, and butchering rituals of our modern hunter-gatherer brothers express thought about the moral aspects of eating meat.

                        I recommend the OP google the kinds of teeth that hooved animals have and then compare them with the teeth of omnivores and obligate carnivores. Compare them with human teeth.

                          Having the capacity to believe in the same morals as the modern man is different than having the same morals as the modern man.

                          Morals are relative, and each society has its own concepts of right and wrong.

                            This thread is so entertaining I can't keep my eyes off it! Lets keep it going. The last time I watched documentaries of equatorial tribes I remember them hunting monkeys... Why would they hunt monkeys if they were surrounded by all that wonderful fruit?

                              The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.
