The point is that I could sit here and argue with you forever. But your mind is made up and no amount of logic and evidence is going to change your mind.

Re: Fasting

I'm not anti-fasting but it does need to be done carefully and mindfully. Just fasting to release toxins and going back to a crappy diet is a waste of time. As a kick start to a new healthy eating regime it's good. You need to ease into and exit a fast with a lot of care. And a fast IMHO should only last 8hrs, not several days. Exercise is the best way to release toxins and fix stress. If you combine it with good food then great! But even a not-so-good diet with exercise is better than a...

Great that you posted these musings Melesi. I don't have common reference points with you as far as a diet of Arthur Miller or Jose Ortega y Gassett, so my response is more intuitive, being someone who does draw and paint. And therefore subjective, which all discussion of art ultimately is. I'd like to know your own personal thoughts and interactions on/with modern art though, references aside.

Melesi... arguing art and individual perceptions of it (art is more perception that fact) is such a HUGE topic.

Where does that take the discussion? They aren't actual questions.

You still did not explain what puts these men on "another level" as you put it. You just described more personal preferences. Being vegan is a choice - not necessarily a better one than eating meats. Vegans have their own health issues to deal with. There are some nutrients that are hard to come by in vegan diets. Particularly if they do not consume diary. Drinking in moderation is shown to improve heart health and lipid profiles, so being a non-drinker isn't inherently better either. How do...

I disagree. Natural meat eaters eat flesh raw. Accordingly, natural meat eaters have claws, sharp teeth, sweat through the mouth, have a short intenstine which is two thirds the length of their bodies (humans are 30 ft. long), their jaws move up and down only, and the stomach can digest hair. Humans lack all of these natural meat eating habits and attributes. Furthermore, the human intestinal tract causes meat to stay in the body for up to 3 days. This causes toxins to be aborbed in the body...

Rowe, as you know, I love u and all but my biggest pet peeve is wrongful information especially medical ones!

There's a problem with this analysis. The Pharaoh of Moses' time did indeed have a Firstborn Son, who died in the last of the ten plagues. Akhenaton more closely parallels the pharaoh who was living during Joseph's time--especially considering the religious makeover of the times of Akhenaton. Pharaoh in Joseph's time had some pretty compelling dreams and interpretation was only possible through God who used Joseph to accomplish this. It is then entirely likely that Pharaoh went mono...
