If what you say is true, it's pure darwinism at it's best. Only the strong survive, right?


so I'm watching this show on discovery or science or whatever they are calling it these days, and
they say that the reason we have evolved into competitive, smart, reasoning humans all came
from early man deciding to begin eating meat.

: so, if meat eating is being creditied to the evolution of our minds, why would anyone decide to
go back to the diet we had (plant life) back when we grunted at eachother and basically had the
reasoning ability of a 3 year old

: (they actually drew that comparison, because a humans competitive instincts don't kick in until
after 3 years of age, before that they have no ability to imagine how other people see them: the
ability that gives birth to so many of our instincts)

: I used to have a great respect for non-meat eaters. Now I worry that they are working against
human evolution, even trying (unwittingly) to set our species back.

: thoughts?
