Speaking of Joe Rogan..... Is our meaty diet part of the very thing that makes us human?

Haven't watched the video yet (I'm listening to music, and the video will interfere), but I seem to remember reading somewhere that the ability to cook food, and particularly a meaty diet, enabled us to get more nutrients out of food, which in turn enabled the energy-hungry large brain to evolve. If this is so, perhaps veganism makes you stupid, which makes you less likely to eat meat, which makes you even stupider, etc. Cheesy

So clearly it's agreed then.
If the Eternal and Immutable Truth®™ (℗ & © 325 CE), as amended 381, 431, 449, 451, 553, 680-681, 692, 754, 787, 869-870, 879-880, 1123, 1139, 1179, 1215, 1245, 1274, 1311-1312, 1341-1351, 1409, 1414-1418, 1423-1424, 1431-1445, 1512-1514, 1545-1563, 1672, 1870-1960, 1962-1965 CE et seq, can be established consensually by an act of ballot, then surely as menial a thing as the reality of spirits—whether evil, or sticky, or both—rests on an unshakeable footing as soon as three or more people agree, no?

YouTube suggested I watch this:

The NWO DIEt - The First Ever Anti-Vegan Documentary (2017):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_CXwa-_5Uk&t=1082s

Alas, it does meat eaters no favors. It's been a while since I have seen such a bizarre hodgepodge of incoherence, pseudoscience, religion and conspiracy theory.

It appears there are foam-at-the-mouth fanatics on both sides of the debate. Looking at the guy's other videos, it is clear that he is completely obsessed with vegans and proving them wrong. YouTube sure is a weird, wild and wonderful place. :-)

Hey, I have a novel suggestion: leave people to eat whatever the freck they like, and let Darwin sort it out. Cheesy

As you go through life some experiences stay with you, while others end up in the 'just another day' bin. I can remember where I was and what I was doing when the Challenger disaster happened and also the Twin Towers. I even remember my wedding. Today's one is going to sit with me for a while. A missionary church booked me to do the mobile planetarium. Not for a normal show, but to "pray under the stars" as she (the one doing the booking) put it. There were 26 of them, all Afrikaans, and they stood in a circle around me. I had to stay inside to operate the projector and lights if needed. Well, they prayed. Each one tried their best to outdo all the others in loudness and the length of said prayers. They also prayed in tongues. Every once in a while, one would burs out in song or just start crying. This carried on for two and a bit hours. How the hell can adults behave like that? Before it started we were standing around chatting on the lawn, and I foolishly thought that I had it wrong, these are just normal people. It was the stuff of nightmares. I need therapy.
Happy to assist.
Although this therapist is dealing with her own shit.
The fella I rather liked has decided to do a 10 week course to join a church... he’s a statistician with a PHD...  so now I’m single yet again.
