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.

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.

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.

[QUOTE=Lurene Grenier;481585]That is exactly not what I'm saying. What I AM saying is that I can construct a perfectly valid proof with non-veracious assumptions, thus being internally consistant and yet disjoint.

validity and veraciousness are seperate and distinct properties.

I am emphatically saying that logic and math CANNOT be otherwise. Thats what validity MEANS - that the structure and consistency of your argument are correct.[/QUOTE]

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.

[QUOTE=Robert Wolf;481804]
Has anyone read the book [I]Contact[/I]? The movie was pretty good, the book was phenomenal and really gets to the heart of this topic.[/QUOTE]

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.

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.

Thanks for stopping in Steven. It's like community service for you.... your posts have such valuable info in them, it's nice of you to share it with us.

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.
