    What pre-flood Scriptures are you referring to in your claim that they were sacrificing animals? Genesis 9 has a few different interpretations, but that could be a topic in and of itself. God permits many things in this fallen world that he does not like and were never part of his original design/intent. Divorce, for example. Polygamy. And many other things. Here are some things that can't be denied: 1) God's original design was for us to be herbivores and live in peace and harmony with the animals.

    That's not what I was objecting to in that post. I was objecting to his claim that God designed us to be omnivores. It could be debated that we evolved to be omnivores (I'm not saying I believe that, I'm saying that the argument could be made)...but the claim that we were originally designed to be omnivores is what I was arguing against. BTW, Swordsmyth is more than capable of handling himself. I don't want to be rude but it's not necessary for you to reply for him. :) Especially if you misunderstand my points and what I'm arguing.

    Desires? That's ironic, because it seems to me that many Christians are twisting God's heart and character, all because of their fleshly desires for things they love to eat and can't ever imagine giving up… (putting their stomach and desires above all else) even if it means supporting cruelty, torture and the animal industries' complete disregard for God's creation.

    Where? If you're going to make a claim, be specific. Are you denying that the word 'meat' used in the King James version simply means food?

    Oh my gosh, you're being so needlessly argumentative. Let me say this again, in a different way. My point was that the idea that meat is healthy comes from a lie.... A lie we've been told for many, many years. That's really the bottom line. I also said that that lie was in the government food pyramid, which now pretty much everyone knows is a joke. So what? Do you disagree with that? Now if you want to extrapolate that into this, that or the other, go ahead, but the main point was that it is a long-standing lie. It's clear to me that you are just being argumentative and accusatory… Because for some reason this issue is very, very personal for you.

    I hope you're not thinking that the word meat in Genesis 1 means animal flesh. The word "meat" originally meant food, and that is why in most translations it says food. God's heart is and always has been for peace and harmony among all living beings, love, gentleness, respect for life. Not a brutal, selfish, bloody slaughterhouse in paradise. So to even imply otherwise is absurd. Keeping sheep doesn't mean that they're killing and eating them. If that's what you think, then you are adding on to the text. God did not permit meat eating until after the flood, and even that is something that can be interpreted in different ways that, but that's another topic.

    I didn't say that that was his argument, I was merely saying that his idea that meat is healthy comes from the lie we've been told, which was in that food pyramid.

    Why give rep for a demonstrably false statement? God's original design is clear in Genesis 1, we were herbivores in the beginning. This is not even debatable, even mainstream meat eating Christian scholars will tell you that.

    No, that is absolutely false. Genesis 1:29–30 clearly states that God originally created us all (animals and humans) as herbivores. God defined food in chapter 1 of the first book of the Bible to be fruits and vegetables and food from the ground, not meat! Meat eating did not come till much later, and only due to the depravity that God gave us over to in this fallen world

    That's what we were told, that idea comes from the same government food pyramid which told us dairy was healthy too, which we now know is not true. We have been lied to. Why would you think that eating a dead body is healthy? Especially if it came from the absolutely horrendous and unsanitary conditions that most meat comes from, where the animals are pumped full of antibiotics, because if they weren't, they'd all be sick, since they are standing knee-deep in feces, surrounded by flies and disease.

    I didn't actually make that claim. But it is true that meat eaters have a much higher obesity rate than vegans and vegetarians. It's just common sense that eating things like McDonald's, Kentucky fried chicken, and other greasy "food" (look at the people who eat that stuff… most of them are obese) is far more likely to lead to obesity and other health problems than eating a healthy plant-based diet. Plus, people who eat the SAD are probably on average less concerned with health in general, and exercise.

    ^ Case in point. Carbs are only bad if you're eating things like cookies, Doritos, soda, etc. Eating a healthy, whole foods plant-based diet (which is a high carb diet, of the good variety) is a completely different story.

    I think that with the trendiness of Paleo and other meat–heavy diets, there has been an overemphasis on sugar as the culprit... Why, because no one wants to come anywhere close to acknowledging that meat and dairy are linked to cancer, obesity, heart disease, etc. So let's blame it all on sugar. Absolutely no one wants to give up their cherished bacon, steak, hamburgers, etc. In fact, it seems that some people would rather die than even remotely consider their animal products might be bad for a number of reasons. Believe me, I get it. I went for many years avoiding looking into these things, because I loved eating all that stuff. I get it.

    That actually wasn't my point. I didn't say anything about eggs. I was merely highlighting the statement "most Americans are overweight or obese" and eat a Western diet heavy on meat, etc.

Earlier this month, a male-to-female transgender filed a $50,000 human rights complaint after a Muslim woman refused to perform a Brazilian wax on his genitals. The unnamed transgender person has repeatedly claimed that he called inquiring about a leg wax, but the owner of Mad Wax, the waxing studio based in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, insisted the request clearly indicated his interest in a genital wax.

    That was done during the economic crisis but is not normally done. When the market for Mortgage Backed Securities froze up, the Fed traded some of their Treasury holdings for MBS. The Fed quite being a net buyer of any securities in 2014 when they ended QE. (they still buy some new ones to replace maturing ones to keep their holding fairly flat though they are now reducing their balance sheet by not replacing all of their maturing securities including Treasuries) Highly misleading number. During the crisis, the Fed did loan money to banks, but not $16 trillion worth. Loans were overnight. If a bank kept a loan for another day, it was counted as a new loan- even if the amount was still the same. If they borrowed $1 million and waited a month to pay it back, it was counted as $30 million in loans even though it was actually only $1 million. Actual loans were about $2 trillion in total- since paid back. Also the loans were not to any businesses and were only made to banks in the US- not "around the world". (That did include US branches of foreign banks).

    Where did the benefits from technology- which has allowed us to increase output of goods per person or per man hour of labor? These benefits can go any of three places. One is lower prices. One is higher wages to workers. The third is to the owners of capital- the heads of the company or their share holders. Wages have been flat so it isn't going there. Prices haven't gone down much. On the other hand, corporate profits and income of the wealthy have soared. That has led to a rising gap in wealth and income in society. They have reaped the benefits. Unions used to try to gain a bigger share for workers but unions have also declined significantly. A business wants to maximize their own profits so they want to keep waged (their main cost) as low as possible. Until the mid 1970's, the gains of production were shared much more equally. Using gold for money won't change that. Not allowing banks to loan out money (ending fractional reserve banking) won't change that.

    Exactly. In Calvinism, Jesus becomes completely unnecessary. Which is probably why they (Calvinists) don't even really talk about Jesus that much. I have to say, I'm glad we no longer have those never-ending debates around here.
