    No one can prove that our guts have evolved to expect cooked foods. That would be even way more difficult to prove than how long humans have been around and cooking food. We do have weak jaws and teeth but they're good enough for human foods like fruits, vegetables and meat.

    Cooking has been around for a long ass time and to us we think it's such a simple invention. We have stoves, gas and lighters. Can you imagine trying to build a fire with sticks or stones everyday? I don't know, can't be that easy. Being able to discover how to do that in the first place must have been mind blowing.

    I'm not religious at all and I'm not a believer of the theory of evolution either but I believe nature's intention was for us to eat without cooking. I'm not saying cooking is evil or anything but probably not nature's intention. Honestly, no one can prove when or what happened thousands of years ago unless if you were there. There's all these experts and all but they can't say for sure. It's all theory. We can't even say for sure if Jesus existed 2000 years ago but we can say for sure what happened 10,000 or 100,000 years ago?

      Depends on your definition of "prove." We can't prove gravity, but I'm confidently walking out my front door tomorrow without my tether.

      You've already been informed by those better versed in the science than yourself that nature doesn't have intentions. Why ask a question and then argue with the responses? Are you curious or pushing an agenda? This makes it seem like the latter.

      You're confused about the various uses of the word theory. See my gravity example above. Take 2 Richard Dawkins books and call us in the morning.

        Most people on this forum are just bias towards anything caveman. This whole forum is all about not doing ab exercises and eating bacon cause Mark Sisson says it's ok. Yet there's so many people here who trouble getting visible abs. It's almost like a cult cause people refuse to believe anything that goes against the primal blueprint and will follow anything Mark Sisson preaches. If you want to say I can't prove gravity exist then whatever cause I guess I can't but it's definitely part of my everyday reality and everybody elses. How a caveman or person lived thousands of years ago is a different thing. They could have been eating each other for all we know. We didn't exist in that world and no one we know did either. If you want to get all scientific about words and dissect everything I say then you're just trying to complicating things to make me appear less credible. My theory is just my opinion and it's a very simple one but I think it makes some sense. It can't be any more crazy than thinking humans were once some kind of ape or monkey.

            In all seriousness, why not try not cooking your Primal food and see how it goes? Have you done an experiment like that?

            I don't really think that most folks here who have been Primal for a while are cultish, though - just everywhere you can read posts about how more experienced Primals tweak it for various ailments and goals and concerns and personal taste and stuff. I know I still have my will and wits about me, even though I stay close to the plan as written.

            Anyway, I have thought about the cooking/not cooking thing, too. I am the owner of a whole stack of raw "cookbooks", and the produce recipes are yummy. I use them as inspiration for sides and stuff. And sometimes we eat sashimi and raw beef, too - most of this family likes it. Why not try it and post your results?!
