    I thought eating the flesh of your own species produces stuff like mad cow disease, or is that just an old wives tale to discourage cannibalism, the spoilsports.

    That's a disease in parts of New Guinea, but I haven't heard of it elsewhere.

    Two points here. First, if eating meat is beneficial for our metabolism (in moderation) as would be implied by the brains thing, then doesn't this make us omnivores?

    I stated no position on the matter, in fact I said I was on the fence.

    Second, the whole men having sex with whoever they wanted bit is quite likely more mythological than factual. The ancient cultures we know of tend to regulate sex, not provide a free for all.  

    Perhaps they did, perhaps the ones before those which we know little to nothing of were more like packs of lions or other animals where an alpha males forces himself on the group. Still, not a basis for my ethical code.

    no what i am suggesting is that they should eat watever they lay their hands on and they are not morally obligated, if such a moral obligation ever exsist ...
    hence the fish and poultry question


    Oh. If the situation arises where the only foods available are of a certain type, fish, poultry, pig, etc then sure. That is your only means for survival so be it.

    If the worse comes to the worse, then even human meat is acceptable if it means surviving a few more days until you're rescued from a disaster.

    Causing the minimal suffering you possibly can is a good outlook, especially if can be healthier, cause less damage to our planet and result in more people being fed.

    A case of chicken & the egg - but better seen the other way round, you have to be smarter to get meat.  

    Therefore smarter animals have a competitive advantage sourcing meat, particularly when advanced brains require something like an additional 20% of calorific intake.

    You're more likely to get that eating a sheep as opposed to grass.  For that reason brains got smarter & smarter and got better at killing more & more.  

    This supposedly continued until our cranial size grew to the limit of the female pelvis, resulting in still births and then it stopped.

    If I had been raised in a Polynesian or Melanesian culture during the 19th century or earlier I quite likely would have thought the old long pig was fukn scrummy. Despite not having had the benefit of such a salubrious upbringing I would eat human meat if necessary. I wouldn't be at all surprised it it was scrummy too.

    i guess its correct meat is packed with more calories .. unlike veggies with more fibers thus less calories, helped us to attain bigger brains, (as food wasnt really abundant back then) ,obviously it was a factor but i doubt it was the only factor giving us our intelligence... but according to the article raw meat also required a powerful gut ... so ultimetely it was cooking and tool making that lead us down such evolutionary path .. as main factors ,perhaps meat was the initial driving force but not the most powerful
    but is it a matter of NEED!? do we NEED to eat meat?

    I meant eating monkey stew now, and when its not necessary.  Yet you are happy to eat pigs now, when its not necessary.  

    Whats do you think the reason boils (scuse the pun) down to?  

    Do you accept its down to culture like Dawkins points out?  Is it different to the way some end up accepting child marriage, intolerance & murder in religion?

    As is stated in the article above, chimps may occasionally kill and eat an animal or even another chimp, but that does not make them carnivores or omnivore, just a cat eating a piece of bread does not make it an omnivore.

    The taxonomy of our make-up is that of herbivores. The fact of our ability to digest animal protein does not change that. But it does introduce many health hazards that is less prominent in vegetarians, such as heart disease, cancer and strokes.

    In the past man hunted out of necessity when they were short on crops. Meat eating was a rare event. It wasn't daily like it is today.


    Unscientific garbage, a goddamn lie spread by vegans as propaganda and not at all supported by the evidence (unless the evidence is cherry-picked). You animal liberationists disgust me-- bunch of spoiled-brat dishonest assholes with fucked-up priorities.

    Oh it wasn't bigotry at all. Just archaeology. They've dug up Polynesian history on quite a few islands and the result was always the same. Initially there were solid ecosystems with a large variety of species. The new arrivals (humans) ate them. Then they ran out of other species to eat and started on other people. Standard operating procedure and quite culturally acceptable at the time.

    Even today in Maori culture in New Zealand you can say "The flesh of your ancestors is still sticking to my teeth" if you really want to piss someone off. It's a traditional (and very severe) insult since only slaves and the defeated were eaten.
