I'd be curious to know the eating habits of the people who did this show. Meat eaters generally try to justify their eating habits, same as veggies try to justify their choice. It's all a matter of considering the source and the agenda of the people doing this show.
Personally, I disagree with this altogether, but I'm a vegetarian. Even IF it's true, humans did a lot of things (living in caves, for example) in the past and in process of evolving that we don't do now. Maybe those things got us where we are now, but that doesn't necessarily make those things appropriate right here, right now. blahblahblah ... insert standard pro-vegetarian argument here.
And really, dude, I wouldn't worry about vegetarians trying to set our species back. Because that's just silly.
: 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.
