    The sorcerors of Babylon innovated means of imposing eugenic controls on enslaved populations, among them alcoholism and malnutrition.
    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    since i'm not basing my dietary choices on cavemen -- or ideas about cavemen -- it doesn't matter to me.

    also, the extra zip in the fairies is their fight. they do put up a good fight during the munchings and crunchings.

    Truth but I'm sayin, they are extensions and improvements on much much older forms of control. Today we watch the news flash images of menacing tanks on our street and death squad faceless armored goons- back in the day they just actually marched them around and burned your shit down. Today we watch CSI and all that 4th Reich TV bullshit catching the terrorist threats- back in the day they dragged them past your house behind a cart before torturing him while your children watch. Back in the day they taught ignorant people that they were sinful by nature, small, and dependent on the glory of the ruling class and their divine parents. Today we talk about carbon footprints and apologize for being alive and clamor for more rules to wash us of our dirty humanity. Old, tired game. I literally cannot believe so many people buy into it everyday forever.

Considering how wide spread human civilization is and has become, we could be descended from the meat eating people and are just recently being turned into grain eaters.

    The adaptation (evolution) we see where it occurs rapidly is in species that not only have hundreds of generations a year, but also which have multiple offspring (thousands each generation) where mutations can manifest rapidly.

    And darn if all of us not carrying the gluten tolerance mutation haven't died from it. Yet.
