      You guys keep throwing IQ out there like it's a valid fact. IQ is a bunch of bull. I've taken the test, and I came away feeling like nothing in the test was of any importance. The IQ test standards were arbitrarily decided upon for getting a rough estimate of intelligence among AVERAGE people. It was never meant to sort out the cream of the crop.

      So, the IQ test chooses a few different skills that the brain has. The brain has countless skills. One researcher named Howard Gardner put out the theory of multiple intelligences back in 1983, and even he hasn't nailed them all down.

      To truly identify "intelligence", you need an operational definition. Most people are going to stop here because everyone has different beliefs of value, aka morals. I'm going to submit my own and say it's about scientific innovation. I think the most important traits for scientific innovation are luck (destiny does not exist; one must be in the right place to learn something that inspires them in just the right way for them to innovate the correct idea), creativity, determination, visualization abilities (same as spatial intelligence which is on Gardner's list), logic skills obviously, and possibly more that I'm not thinking of. I don't think intelligence is to be judged by horsepower because it's impossible to correctly numerically define any of the aforementioned traits. I think intelligence is to be judged by achievement.

      I'm rambling. Actually, only one person mentioned a numerical IQ, and she might have just been joking. I'm really rambling.

          Perhaps he thought both were "barbarous".

            Meat doesn't bring everyone pleasure. I imagine for some sex isn't pleasurable either.

                I don't think anyone should tell you how to eat.

                  What desperation is that? I eat meat, I enjoy it. I'm not trying to convert anyone to vegetarianism, but I don't mind reminding anti-plant radicals that many of the smartest and most accomplished by and large did not agree with their advice--just for funsies.

                    I did 30 days vegetation. I didn't gain or lose any weight but I felt hungry all the time. Low carb paleo I've lost 50# with no hunger. Could it be differences in ancestry? I cant argue with someone like Tesla, but I can listen to my body. And it does seem more like an emotional statement rather than an intellectual one.

                      It's just a light hearted dig back at KNinja's equally stupid (but earnest) thread about how eating carbs makes you dumb. J3nn was just pointing out that there are high carb geniuses (like Tesla).

                      I guess no one found the vegetarian's are evil link funny then...
                      "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

                      In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

                        I did.

                        I saw the quote in the OP in a meme on Facebook and could not resist placing it in contrast to that ridiculous thread in the nutrition forum.

                          Usually you find inspiration from enlightened minds, because, they don't often do anything without extensive thought process.

                          Famous carnivores:

                          Speculated cavemen
                          Speculated Alaska tribesmen
                          That one guy in that rock band
                          Paleobird
                          Lassie
                          The MGM Lion
                          Rin Tin Tin

                          I think the vegetarians have the edge here. Humans can't survive for long on only meat(has never been actually proven otherwise), but can survive just fine not eating any meat(has been proven). I guess this is why we're omnivorous.

                            Not really. If you do nose to tail meat you can thrive just fine. Vegetarians need B12 shots. As to being omnivores, who said otherwise?

                              Why would you need b12 shots if you eat bottom feeders like oysters, or eggs, or dairy products? Vegetarians aren't vegans, veganism is a myth.

                                I think there is good reason oatmeal is often also called gruel, and that gruel comes from to accept punishment.


                                Of course... this thread is a good tongue in cheek response to that other thread.
                                I agree to that.

                                And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
