    All the heresy in this thread has surely angered Our Dear Leader. I will prepare an offering of grass-fed steak, coconut oil, and organic carrots for Him.

    Yeah. This is Mark Sisson, right?

    His arrows will not blot out the sun, because that is the main source for vitamin D .

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    I think there are always going to be people who take a certain belief system and get so serious about it that it becomes a "religion" to them. Exercise. Diet. Alcoholics Anonymous. Ultralight backpacking. Barefoot running. All of those (and I'm sure hundreds of more philosophies) have adherents that are so serious about them that it becomes like a religion.

    And yet a much higher percentage of people passively follow that belief without getting unrealistically devoted to it. I believe that the Primal Bluepring/Paleo style of eating, exercising and living works. That said, to me Mark is just a guy and Primal has room for cheats.

    from my relatively short time here, the only time a thread or post gets modded is when enough people hit the report button

    and i really hope that the whole 'dissenting views are bad for business' posts were a joke
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

    Yep. Which is usually when people devolve into insulting each other.

    No, he's just butthurt because it was a Peat thread that got locked. I'm sure grizz felt the same way when his iodine megathread went byebye.

    For sure. The best solution to that is to not get sucked in. Or, to sit in the seat of the mockers. Come on it, the water's fine

    Um, such as? (unless you're talking about the carb curve, which which case I totally agree with you).

    No, that's a great attitude, and basically the one you *have* to have when finding out info on the internets.

    Speaking personally, I've moved on a little from Primal to PHD, which overlaps primal in about 90% of what it says, but Jaminet backs up EVERYTHING he reccomends with science. You might want to check it out (the book is better than the blog).

    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    that one iodine thread got locked, and 10 more were made and are still around somewhere

    just like all the potato threads are still up

    and all the other peat threads are still up

    and the carnivore threads are still up

    all choco's posts are still up after all the times he's said he disagrees with mark

    all the individual peat posts are probably still up

    is anyone missing any numbers on their post counts?
