So could it be that religions - most of which have periods of fasting or abstinence from certain foods have also contributed to people in certain nations living longer and healthier lives? (or at least offset some of the lives lost in holy war or the counter- health benefits of being wracked with guilt

I wonder. Is religion equivalent to fad diets? For example, the sort where you only eat cabbage and lemons for a month and hope to morph into Kate Moss.

Are you aware of instances where populations have gone into natural decline because of an abundance of food? I don't mean soil that is too rich for certain plants.

LOL! If Pikkiwoki keeps on making unreasonable demands, he's destined for the great divine scrap-heap, along with Yahweh, Ra, Thor and countless others. These gods need to keep in touch with their markets.

Anyway, sorry for the derailment - temporary I hope.
