    I had the pleasure of receiving the consciousness-altering statement in my inbox. Thank God
    "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."

    Usually, even a non-Christian knows something about the earth, the heavens, and the other elements of this world, about the motion and orbit of the stars and even their size and relative positions, about the predictable eclipses of the sun and moon, the cycles of the years and the seasons, about the kinds of animals, shrubs, stones, and so forth, and this knowledge he hold to as being certain from reason and experience. Now, it is a disgraceful and dangerous thing for an infidel to hear a Christian, presumably giving the meaning of Holy Scripture, talking nonsense on these topics; and we should take all means to prevent such an embarrassing situation, in which people show up vast ignorance in a Christian and laugh it to scorn. The shame is not so much that an ignorant individual is derided, but that people outside the household of faith think our sacred writers held such opinions, and, to the great loss of those for whose salvation we toil, the writers of our Scripture are criticized and rejected as unlearned men. If they find a Christian mistaken in a field which they themselves know well and hear him maintaining his foolish opinions about our books, how are they going to believe those books in matters concerning the resurrection of the dead, the hope of eternal life, and the kingdom of heaven, when they think their pages are full of falsehoods and on facts which they themselves have learnt from experience and the light of reason? Reckless and incompetent expounders of Holy Scripture bring untold trouble and sorrow on their wiser brethren when they are caught in one of their mischievous false opinions and are taken to task by those who are not bound by the authority of our sacred books. For then, to defend their utterly foolish and obviously untrue statements, they will try to call upon Holy Scripture for proof and even recite from memory many passages which they think support their position, although they understand neither what they say nor the things about which they make assertion. [1 Timothy 1.7] -- Augustine of Hippo (A.D. 354-430)

    You seem a bit confused. The unleavened bread is called matzoh, that's what the Jews ate when they were escaping Egypt precisely for the reason that they couldn't wait for the bread to rise. When not running away everyone was eating yeast bread, of course.

    Baby brontosauruses, of course. That's why there are only bones left...

    I will attempt to address the original question. Yes, the bible clearly states that Christians should eat bread. Eating primal/paleo is incompatible with Christian faith. Jesus said nothing about trans fat, high fructose corn syrup, or processed foods in general but if I may hazard a guess, I suggest Christ would of wanted his followers to indulge in those substances as well.

    Jesus had some profound ideas about life and how to treat others, but he wasn't up to speed on ideal macronutriet ratios, dissecting scientific studies, and the debate about cholesterol. Personally, I don't hold it against him. Hey, none of us can be good at everything. If He is Risen (and I say he is risen indeed) I'll bet it has more to do with a divinely efficient digestive system than a divinely inspired diet. His bread-eating followers, on the other hand, may not feel like getting up off the couch anytime soon. Oh well. You have to make sacrifices for your faith.

    I think a bot can neither be childish nor adult-like.

    +1... i'm surprised this is at 17 pages, but these types of threads usually grow quicker than the others.

    I find this whole topic ironic when it's posted on these boards. Doesn't the bible and anything "paleo" contradict each other anyway?

    And the below, which would imply evolution ... (love the dinosaur part btw)
