Re: Don't believe in Paleo because...

Folks, get this back to Nutrition as a subject or it moves to "Stuff and Nonsense", and then gets closed.

Debating evolution vs. creationism is essentially religous in character, and the proponents of creationism (and, sometimes, evolution) are (generally) utterly immune to logic and/or evidence. They have something more powerful ("faith").

Get the subject back on Nutrition, please, or it's gone.

AND MARK YOUR FREAKIN' LINKS AS SAFE (OR NOT), DAMNIT.

Re: Don't believe in Paleo because...

This thread is fail.

If you're Christian and don't agree with Paleo then don't agree with it. But at the very least you can recognize that processed foods are generally bad. This encompasses "most" of what Paleo is about I would say (arguable but it's a nice simplification). And if you want some justification for that you can say that man's foods (processed) are not better than natural foods (plants and animals) that God has made.

As far as non-Paleo non-processed foods... experiment with your body and see if they work well with it. If not, ditch them. If so, then keep them if you enjoy them. Simple. Everyone stays away from processed foods and eats well according to what their bodies handle well.

That was easy.

Re: Don't believe in Paleo because...

This thread is a success, if of course your goal was to drag Steven out of CF board retirement.

Haha... good point. Welcome back Steven, if only temporarily. You've been missed.

Sure. But nobody outside of philosophy (and maybe heavy absinthe drinkers) is usually very interested in valid but unsound proofs.

I haven't a clue what everyone else is going on about, though, and likewise doubt they're super intrigued by philosophy of logic, so this is probably something for PM if you want to continue it.

I have read a lot of Carl Sagan's non-fiction works, but not Contact. Now that you've said that I think I'll give it a try.

Re: Don't believe in Paleo because...

3-2-1 Contact? I used to love that show. Especially the bloodhound gang. I use to watch it on PBS right after sesame street and the electric company.

But seriously, Paleo rocks any way you look at it. Just make the transition and you'll feel the difference.

Re: Don't believe in Paleo because...

Wow this quickly devolved into an evolution vs creationsim/ID discussion, which is pointless, no amount of "evidence" will convince the other side to change. If you don't like it being called a "paleolithic diet" call it a "Hunter-Gatherer diet" since most of the evidence to support the health claims of the diet are from ethnographic studies of modern hunter-gatherer societies which don't suffer from diabtes, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, and obesity to the rates that we currently do.
