    But earlier in this thread you quote J. Stanton and take advice from that complete hack. I mean look at him!! You really think he is a "lion" and would "Die biting the neck". What a total douche.

    A couple of apex predators right here.
    Gnollish J Stanton Interview - YouTube
    Tesla would be a very credible source to cite if one were referencing facts about electricity.
    I don't take investment advice from a mechanic nor do I take advice about my car from an investment banker.
    Nutritional advice coming from an electrical specialist is just one guy's personal opinion. Nothing more significant than that.

    Not sure what your point about J Stanton's interview with Richard Whatshisname was. I admire J Stanton's writing ability, intelligence, insight and well researched presentation of information. I'm not a fan girl of any particular personality.

    Also Tesla was probably gay. Also Also, whatever Hitler was, he was probably a genius.
    And yes, low meat consumption is healthier then high meat consumption. Simple fact. Boom.

    So what else is new with Zach? Makes fun of me for quoting J Stanton while saying that Hitler was a genius. Go figure.

    Plus who is advocating HIGH meat consumption? Perhaps some of the body builder dude bros are into that but not me. Ketogenic diets strictly limit protein intake.

    That doesn't make any sense. In one sweeping statement you discredit everyone, including yourself, an English professor, and other every member of this forum who doesn't put nutritional relations at the forefront of their existence. There are many people with knowledge beyond their forte or passion or degree. It's sheer speculation on your behalf to assume that Tesla, a man of science who spoke eight languages fluently, was not qualified to dispense nutritional advice. Tesla had a reputation for excelling at virtually everything he tried his hand at and a natural ability to learn just about anything almost instantaneously. Do you think somehow biology and nutrition eluded him but Internet bloggers with a fraction of his mental capacity are to be taken as nutritional authorities? That's a very far stretch that I personally would not wager on. Of course, it's always a possibility. Unlikely but possible. Stranger things have happened.

    Oh, I don't know, Zach. He did claim to love his female pigeon much like a wife, lol.

    I'm not qualified to dispense nutritional advice either. I'm perfectly aware of that and fine with it. Forums are places for discussion of opinions.

    What you put forth was Tesla's personal opinion about one subject. The fact that he was intelligent doesn't make it true or untrue.
    I already have an opinion on vegetarian diets, having tried one myself back in college.

    We don't need to put Tesla's Mensa score up against mine to see who is right or wrong. Just two different opinions.

    J3nn, listen to yourself for a minute. Take a step back. You are actually advocating vegetarianism. You are advocating for a person who said that meat eating was "barbarous" and unhealthy. Does that not strike you as odd?

    Also, given the day and age he lived in, I probably have thousands of times the amount of information available to me about nutrition at any given moment than he had in a lifetime. They didn't even know what b vitamins were back then.

    BTW Heinlein is one of my favorite authors. That's a good list for a well rounded human. I know that I could do every one of those things and already have done most of them.

    You rejected his advice and what he claimed to be factual on the basis of his most popularly known specialty because of your bias and prejudices. I merely showcased an incredibly intelligent human being uneffected by a relatively high carb/plant consumption. In fact, he goes so far as to attribute the fuel sources to greater brain power. I am not advocating vegetarianism, I am pointing out the fallacies of those who insist carbohydrates are the bane of human existence.

    PS. I do hypocritically think meat eating is slightly barbarous. Oh well.

    Yeah, I thought that part was a little creepy myself.

    Come on... Millions love Heinlein.
    Most of that list is pretty general. Average folks do that stuff every day.
    And the rest can be accomplished with very little in the way of specialized sorting out... most of it just as a matter of fun hobby stuff.
    No 'credentials' necessary.

    Ah, well that would explain a lot of things.

    And who said carbs were the bane of human existence? Not me.

    I rejected his OPINION as having any relevance to what I am going to do in my life. I think he didn't have as much information about the topic as we do now and might have come up with a different opinion given more facts such as those about vitamin deficiencies commonly suffered by vegetarians.
