I think Dr. Kurt Harris abandoned the paleo community because we're crazy.

    I will be blunt: Anyone who even thinks about calling "emperor's new clothes" on Kruse has no intellectual standing to be giving out dietary advice - let alone calling anyone out for lack of knowledge.
    I couldn't resist.

      JS, your blog is great, and i love many of your posts. i'll call BS on anyone i see fit to, and give out advice likewise. cause this is 'murika. if peter wants to be understood by a lay audience, he can write in order to do so. if he wants to persuade biochemists married to the insulin hypothesis of obesity, he probably doesn't need to do much persuading anyway. in my estimation, “if you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself.”

        No, I don't care. Certain things should be obvious. Yes, neo-Nazism doesn't make sense.

          The only obvious thing about that statement is that the author likes to make wild accusations on the interwebs.

              Well, I was joking. What is obvious to me, clearly isn't obvious to you.
              If Dr. Paul is unhappy with my "accusations," he is welcomed to sue me. What follows could be actually fun.

                Yeah, life is simple when one lives an easy life of platitudes and cliches. The last time I checked, Hitler wasn't mentioned. And yes, we don't have neo-Nazi camps filled with illiterate geeks, including Paulists in Southern California and elsewhere. Sure.
                Can we really be sure that primal diet doesn't shrink people's brains to ... primal size?

                  Early modern humans' brains were, on average, larger than ours. So, yes, we can be sure.

                    And what is "early modern?" The 15th century? Turn of the last century? What? What? What?

                      No. The term "early modern human" refers to the first recognizable members of the species Homo sapiens, who appeared about 150,000 to 200,000 years ago. In comparison, the 15th century was about 10 seconds ago.

                        Well ...according to Wiki, early modern humans lived in the 15th century.
                        "Modernity typically refers to an historical era, roughly defined as a post-traditional or[clarification needed] post-medieval period beginning Renaissance (ca. 14th–17th Centuries), characterized by a move from feudalism (or agrarianism) toward capitalism, industrialization, secularization, rationalization, the nation-state and its constituent institutions and forms of surveillance."
                        I am pretty sure that many in artistic circles think that early modern humans lived at the beginning of the 20th century.

                          You're talking about a cultural and artistic era, not an biological one. In anthropology, we use the term "modern" or "anatomically modern human" to describe us and early members of our species, as opposed to "archaic" humans like Neanderthals and Floresiensis who were earlier species that didn't survive.

                            I know what I talking about, or rather what point I am making. I am not an anthropologist and a phrase "an early modern human ate 200 000 years ago, for example, ... whatever" sounds weird.

                              Your point is invalid because your premise is incorrect.
