The evidence is clear that we evolved as omnivores.

I don't dispute the facts (I never do).

He asked me why I am a vegetarian.

I suggested that I could answer in a separate thread.

He declined.

That's OK with me.

Couldn't be simpler. Big Grin
You're correct.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: Predation in 'Intelligent Design" ???
I don't see any yec theological issue here. It's stupid but it's plain and simple to see why animals are punished:

Adam had dominion over all the animals... He was punished for sinning and having to toil the land; as well as, live the life with that predation design as a punishment. All the animals under his dominion were cursed via the same fate to whatever design they had.

Plus if God is Omniscient and knew this was to occur, it would be why he designed the animals to be prepared for this system.

I was referring to this part of your post:

The very same posters will just as immediately and vehemently appeal to progress when there is any suggestion of giving up some modern overindulgence (cheap electronics, air travel, bio-engineering) - not that they themselves are asked to give these things up, just any hint that somebody, somewhere could and has.

Protest too much, much?

Who "appeals to the cavemen"? Who "appeals to progress"? I have no idea what you're talking about, because your response has nothing to do with what I wrote. All I did was asking Zat whether or not he disputes that humans are omnivores.

Well, that's just a big stupid sundae with silly sauce and extra crazy crunchies on top. Yes


I almost snorted my coffee at "yec theological issue".
