    Only because you assume that the one most stereotypical version of Christianity is the only one that all Christians follow.

    As stated by myself and others, not all Christians believe in a completely literal version of the Bible.

    Muslim! God creates how, what and when He wills. I'm not strictly PB and doubt I ever will be - as I wrote in my introductory note). Though, I should add, that many of the protocols and practices of PB are consonant with my perception of aspects of 'religious' practice .

    Don't let anybody tell you, "You can't" just because they can't.

    Ahhhhhh, but does it not strike you as odd that you must manipulate what you have read to conform to your per-determined conclusion? A good analogy is medical studies. Those who are interested in propagating CW often look at studies/evidence which directly defy their foregone conclusions, then "interpret" them to show how said studies/evidence support the CW position.
    Is this not what you are doing with the Bible, since it DOES NOT indicate a beginning that is consistent with what we have learned about the universe? And, not to sound like a smart-ass, but just what is it that motivates you to seek-out, and defend religion as an explanation for the universe/Man?

The problem with religion (by which I mean the belief in any sort of a creator), is that no real reason is given for why anything should be as it is. It is merely "god's will, and you'll be damned if you question it!"
    If Earth were only 6000 years old, and all the creationist psuedo-science true, then why would eliminating grains be beneficial? If evolution had taken place so rapidly, then why haven't we adapted to neolithic foods? Why aren't we adapting to HFCS now? The answers to the question about our origin/evolution ARE important, and, to those who claim they don't care, yes you do. What else gives you a desire to "have faith?" Are you afraid, perhaps? If religion requires you to alter your way of thinking, WORSHIP an entity, and instruct you children in its' ways, then isn't it important enough to MAKE SURE that you aren't just making a fool or yourself? I have seen and heard of people becoming very impassioned about faith, be hateful, self-deprecating (as is often the case in worship music), irrational, even murderous. To me, it is as absurd as one child stabbing another over whether or not Rudolph flies every Christmas.
    So, to kinda stay on topic, I think that those who eath paleo/primal, yet are Christians (or Muslims, or Jews, or Pagans) are contradicting themselves.
    Agreed. I was a little more outspoken in the other thead with someone who was claiming a "modern religion" (anything in the past 10-12,000 years like Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, etc).

    After doing some research and thought on mental health, I have come to decide that these religions are basically chosen and defended by their followers because the religion is good for their own mental health. It's almost a one-size-fits-all bandaid. Bandaid for what? All the crap that happens to people that is due to our totalitarian agriculture society.

    Would not Grok have been a believer?

    Is not the theory of evolution another wrong headed presentation from the world of CW?

    I would think that the adherence of 75% of the planet to a Judeo/Christian/Islamic one-size-fits-all "god" is a FAR better representation of CW, and thus a far better target for doubt.
