Our Beliefs: Meat and Dairy (MAD) Consumers ~ The Facts: Plant-Based Diet!

“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed.

Second, it is violently opposed. 

Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”

 -Arthur Schopenhauer

We “human herbivores” no longer need to wonder why we are experiencing epidemic levels of disease (obesity, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, etc.) and environmental devastation; over 50% of all greenhouse gases, and up to 90% of deforestation are caused by meat and dairy (MAD) consumption.

The following is the introduction, human characteristics, comparative outline, and conclusion of Dr. Milton R. Mills’ analysis of human anatomy and physiology: The Comparative Anatomy of Eating” 


BELIEFS

Humans are most often described as “omnivores.” This classification is based on the “observation” that humans generally eat a wide variety of plant and animal foods. However, culture, custom and training are confounding variables when looking at human dietary practices. Thus, “observation” is not the best technique to use when trying to identify the most “natural” diet for humans. While most humans are clearly “behavioral” omnivores, the question still remains as to whether humans are anatomically suited for a diet that includes animal as well as plant foods.

FACTS

A better and more objective technique is to look at human anatomy and physiology. Mammals are anatomically and physiologically adapted to procure and consume particular kinds of diets. (It is common practice when examining fossils of extinct mammals to examine anatomical features to deduce the animal’s probable diet.) Therefore, we can look at mammalian carnivores, herbivores (plant-eaters) and omnivores to see which anatomical and physiological features are associated with each kind of diet. Then we can look at human anatomy and physiology to see in which group we belong.

Vegan Zeitgeist – The Spirit of Our Age – Banners and Quotes

The Zeitgeist Movement RBE?–Veganism Is A Resource-Based Economy!

The Zeitgeist Movement RBE?--Veganism IS A Resource-Based Economy!

Are we within The Zeitgeist Movement

demonizing money same as religions use “Evil”!?

Are we — who avow a Resource-Based Economy (RBE) — within The Zeitgeist Movement (TZM) certain that money is the root of all evil? Do we really know the origins of scarcity and corruption (fear)? Will we humble ourselves before the facts of our exponentially declining resources, and temper our consumption to create abundance and equality (Love)? Presently our gluttonous consumption is massacring our resources, and threatening any possibility for a RBE, or any sustainable future. “The fact is, efficiency, sustainability, and abundance are enemies of profit.” ~Zeitgeist Addendum. Does this mean we simply wait for “the coming of” a RBE, while patronizing, yet cursing, the profiteers of doom?  Read the rest of this entry
