Ever since I was little, through observation and propaganda, I have always suspected going vegetarian was indeed a better lifestyle. In the epic movie, Land Before Time, that captured not only my heart when I was little(and now), is about to capture my diet. It captured my heart in that it left a boy refilling his cereal bowl with tears and spending 10 minutes rewinding the film on VHS, within the VCR…to replay it. All the carnivores in the movie are bad guys and terrible fighters no kid wants to be either, especially the second one.
The only problem with being vegetarian is and was getting certain vital proteins and vitamins/minerals naturally. But with the abundance of supplements and ease to get them, it’ll only make me wonder and want to take advantage of that crutch! I don’t care about eating a pill every other day or so…I know one day I’ll be poppin’ calcium pills cause I’m lactose intolerant. Might as well get used to it now and pretend it’s Vicodin…or just mix some Vicodin in there.
While it may seem strange to rely on a pill for some part of your diet, let’s not forget a lot of the processed meat we ingest is also sorted through an assembly line and packaged, just like pills. The animals are just as engineered as the pills are…if not more. There’s just a lot of blood and screaming PETA people with the second part.
Genesis 1:29 (New International Version)
29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.
We were originally made to be vegetarian, when we were at Adam. But if humans were able to live back then to almost 1000 years old (Methuselah) they obviously got everything they needed in their diet…or maybe it was just God’s blessings. But it makes me wonder about the difference in our bodies between us and Adam. Did Noah and his kids have the meat eating teeth while all the other sinners were ‘naturally’ selected in a great flood that resembled a great toilet flush? Did their appendix do more stuff than ours?
Whatever the case. This much, may be true…
- Humans are able to eat meat and digest it. Not in large amounts though.
- We have teeth similar to carnivores, for tearing or gripping meat.
- Most of our teeth however are designed for chewing, like herbivores.
- Our appendix may once have been a stomach that was used when we were herbivores.
- God has decreed that we can eat meat in the same way that we eat veggies and fruit. Therefore it is not a sin to eat meat.
While researching the above was taken from here. Or it could just be as God says in
Genesis 6:3 (New International Version)
3 Then the LORD said, “My Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal; his days will be a hundred and twenty years.”
