it can be maddening all the opposite advice out there, all from totally credible and inspirational sources. just keep doin yo thang
agree dylan trust your own experience : )
i have seen monkeys eat nuts, some of them have a hard time getting them open but, I think they are the closest species to us and we should do what they do and not rely on other human beings to tell us what to do. Humans are stupid when it comes to what we are supposed to do in life. Animals have not been corrupted by human stupidity lol
Agree with you to a point here Alex, however everybody says we should look at the monkeys and do what they do, however remember we are no longer monkey we have evolved into a different species and while other primates diets can be a clue to ours it isn't necessarily the same. Different species of monkey have slight variations in their diets. There are some primates that kill and eat smaller monkeys. Doesn't mean that is what is natural for humans and doesn't mean that is what humans should do IMO. Additionally some primates eat their own poop, doesn't mean that is what humans would do in nature. Other primates diets are a good map to ours but I would think since we are in fact a different species, yes we are still primates but we are a different species of primate, and therefore it is reasonable to believe that our diets are different. Some theorize that we evolved in a time when natural fruits were abundant in the tropics and the primates feasted on their preferred diet of fruits and their brains grew, they grew more intelligent and evolved into humans. So if this theory is true then it is reasonable to assume that humans are not monkey, poop eating primates but fruit eating primates.
hello fruit of life, thank you for the insight, i was wondering if you could point me towards any texts regarding the theory you mentioned about evolution of primates caused by the consumption of tropical fruit?
This is second hand accounts I have heard of this. I have heard two people refer to this theory on this forum and they spoke of the book called "Left in the Dark" Actually, someone recommended this book to me (the recommender didn't tell me that this concept is in the book they just said the book may be of interest to me) so I have been planning on buying it and reading it, after it was recommended to me I saw people say this about the book so now I have an idea about what it is potentially about and I am very excited to read it, it is the next book I am going to buy on my wish list.
So I don't know the exact theory or point the book makes, I believe from the comment I have seen it also talks about how we fell from our natural diets because of certain environmental issues I believe and since then the human brain began to atrophy
awesome, thanks for the info
You are welcome :-)
there's a free edition available here as a pdf-
haha yeeees i love the free dissemination of knowledge on 30bad! power to the people!
more thank you would think i'm sure. i for one don't eat them, not out of principle but just because i don't have any desire for them
