    It's odd how much your comments tend to mirror my thoughts.
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    Muslim here and I love PB for both the health benefits AND the science behind it. Although may I'm the wrong person to answer since I've got no problems with evolution/natural selection/whatever you want to call it, plus I've found nothing in my religion that contradicts that view.

    It's all a moot point anyway. I would assume that if one believed in an omniscient omnipresent all powerfull etc. God, then that God might have the wherewithal to be able to create using his own rules that he presumably put down for the universe... including natural selection. Just because it may have happened over millions of years rather than overnight doesn't make it any less spectacular.

    I am a Christian and I love the primal lifestyle. In fact I found out about the Primal Blueprint from Tom Woods a libertarian Catholic scholar. Tom's whole family went Primal.

    I trust science quite a bit and I doubt it just as much. Newtonian physics was not completely correct, the physics that replaced it are still not completely correct and more than likely never will be. Evolution obviously makes more sense than the Genesis story, but it too will be replaced with hopefully a better or more complete explanation someday.

    I am an ameteur programmer and too me the advances in genetic cataloging and mapping are fascinating. Its like a four bit programming language for chemical computing. We'll learn more about how lifeforms change from genetics than we ever will from rebuilding models based on a few scrap bones and when we do we'll learn to program better too.

    Someday when we are timewarping around the universe on beams of light with fully synthetic bodies we will laugh at our old ideas of physics and biology. I'll keep living primal in the hopes I'll live long enough to see a little of it

    for all your disdain of rednecks, you would fit in amazingly well here... are you sure you are not an escapee of these parts who now turns his evil nose up at the people who perhaps have spawned him?

    You seemed to know an awful lot about tick-ology as it pertains to here...

    So, you have faith in the handful of nutritionist experts who agree with a Primal diet approach and tell you that all that cholesterol won't kill you etc. They basically hold your life in their hands so they'd better be right!

    But you don't believe in evolution. Despite the fact that hundreds of thousands of palaeontologists, geologists, geneticists et al., tell you it's a generally accepted fact? Don't you think that the oil and gas companies have faith in the theory, when they spend billions of dollars drilling in the places that the geologists tell them to?

    If you follow a diet based on science, gleaned by real scientists, I think it's rather rude to them to say that you'll use the practical application of their findings but not accept the reasons why it works.
    Start weight: 238 lbs (March 2012)
    Current weight: 205 lbs (July 2012)
    Loss so far: 33 lbs!!!
    WOE: Primal + IF
    Movements: Hiking, sprinting.
    Goal: to see my abs some time in 2013!

    I think the destiny of all beings is to simply adapt as well as possible to their environment to survive. Humans have adapted so well, that they have become sedentary and contemplate on whether or not a greater being has some greater destiny in mind for them.

    The difference between the two egalitarian tribes was that one had equality of rights, and the other tried to achieve equality of wealth through the means of violence to redistribute the wealth from productive members of the tribe to unproductive members.

    Egalitarianism where everyone has equal rights, known as libertarianism, is achieved through voluntary action. This leads to an abundance of wealth.
    Egalitarianism where everyone has equal wealth, known as socialism, is achieved through coercive action. This leads to a scarcity of wealth.

    It's a little rude to say that, if I agree with what someone says, I have to accept every single thing they say without question.

    Having said that, I actually do believe in evolution. I'm just showing the failings of your statement. Blind devotion to ANY authority is dangerous.

    I am a Christian and a creationist. I don't believe that the earth is millions of years old. I believe that Adam and Eve were created by God fully human. However, I also think it is absolutely correct that people were healthier before the agricultural revolution, regardless of how long or short a time that was. So I am following a primal/paleo diet (working on the lifestyle part) without buying into the evolution piece.
