I'm not saying people who eat lots of oatmeal cannot be smart, I just don't think their intelligence is connected to the consumption of oatmeal.

    High carb or low carb, high fat or low fat, carnivorous or vegetarian, Primal is about making food and health decisions based upon science and evidence, even if it isn't the mainstream science. I am not aware of any particular neurological benefits of soggy grain. We all know this, so I guess we all just wanted a stupid excuse to argue about a bunch of stupid irrelevant nonsense.

    Eat what you like and what makes you feel healthy, just like Tesla probably did. Arguing on the internet is rarely conducive to inventions that change the world.
    Its not about the consumption of oatmeal, its about the avoidance of animal flesh.

    I see a lot of confusion here between a predator and an obligate carnivore. A predator is an animal who would naturally prey on other animals for all or a portion of it's food. An obligate carnivore is an animal who is physiologically dependent on nutrients found only from animal sources.

    Vultures are obligate carnivores yet they rarely prey on animals in favor of scavenging. A lion is an obligate carnivore who will prey or scavenge depending on what's easier. A bear is an omnivore but is anyone here going to argue that a Grizzly isn't a predator as well? Rats are another example of predators who are also omnivores. Many people who have kept both pet rats and pet mice know what I mean! Chimps are another example of omnivorous predators.

    My dogs are not allowed to run the neighborhood preying on cats, squirrels, and lizards for their dinner. Does that make them any less the predator? Does that mean that a meat based diet isn't healthiest for them? Humans are omnivores and our natural state is one of a predator and sometimes a scavenger. Buying food from the grocery store or hunting it down and killing it with our bare hands makes no difference to that.

    Pretty much. As if any specific diet has yet to prove health and longevity beyond the maximum 120 years or so. I think science will win that race.

    Followed by gender issues, then art, solilopsy, nihilism and back to Hitler (because every internet debate must end with Nazis)?

    Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.

    I think I did actually bring up the difference between spirits in the plants and animals vs. distant sky gods, but nobody took the bait.

    I think it just means you have never been taught to kill an animal, and that you have never starved which might lead you to kill an animal. I don't think it means anything else.

    All throughout history people have taken vows of celibacy, many find the spiritual and mental stimulation far more intense. I find it admirable.
    If you take a vow of celibacy, but never had a chance of getting laid in the first place do you still get super celibacy laser vision?
