God made it that way. ... Humans were originally created to eat vegetarian
Plenty of dishes use raw meat. Ever heard of Steak tartare?
There's a theory that says we humans heat up meat before eating it because that's what the meat of freshly killed prey in the wild is like: warm.
That theory kind of kills your theory, doesn't it?

No vegetation described in the Bible? Didn't God create plants (vegetation) before he created animals? If God sent Adam and Eve into an area without vegetation, what did the animals you claim they ate feed on?
If you want to eat vegetarian, go for it, but there's no need to pull stuff out of your ass to justify it.

"Humans were originally created to eat vegetarian, that's why we don't need scary pointy teeth to chew and tear apart meat."
Then why do we have canine teeth?

We can eat raw meat like any other animal. Humans just figured out that, if you cook it, you'll have less issues with parasites and bacteria. Animals still have to deal with all that.

"[How could animals eat raw meat but not humans?"
So Inuit, Mongol, and Lapp folks arent human?
The abyssmal ignorance is simply staggering.

...Hm. I thought that the idea behind cooking meat was to make it easier to digest, what with our saliva not being as acidic as dedicated carnivores'. Note how ceviche works, and compare the results to fire-cooking. Essentially, fire-cooking removed selective pressures for acidic saliva.

Really, you can eat raw meat, but I wouldn't suggest it, fire was probably the first real tool we used to really get rid of disease in our food. It's a worth while practice in many cases and for many reasons no matter what those 'raw diet' nuts try to tell you.

"It wasn't till the fall a of Adam and Eve when they were tricked by the devil to eat of the tree of righteousness. ..."
No such thing - it was the tree of knowledge of good and evil, i.e. that which made us people rather than pets (if you belief such guff)
Making things up out of the bible is a SIN

You know, this can all be explained by evolution, too.
Ah, screw it, it's Yahoo answers, the most stupid place on the internet.

And no matter what this guy eats, his brains are still made out of macaroni. Used macaroni.

Have you noticed our front teeth?
Made to tear meat, asshole. We are omnivores. We can eat both meat and veggies.
And, have you never heard of sushi or steak tartar?

If there was no vegetation, what did the beasts eat? It doesn't exactly sound sustainable to me. Furthermore, without vegetation, what would they have used to make the fire? If you're going to make up stories, at least get rid of the gaping plot holes.
@Skyknight: Not only would the meat be easier to digest, but the fire also denatures the digestive proteins in it and kills any bacteria and parasites inside, making it last longer before it begins to rot. In the end, that means that the tribe would be able to wait longer between hunts, saving them time for other necessary chores.

"That's just because God made it that way."
Goddidit: Because it's easier than having to think about things.

Or, our teeth and jaws gradually adapted, but not perfectly, which is why you may have to remove those wisdom teeth from your puny Homo Sapiens jaw. And it's not like cooked meat is more hygienic and much more tender to eat, right?

There's a lot of speculation that early hominids ate carrion, before they figured out how to kill large animals for themselves.
But that aside, supposedly my genetic lineage cannot self-synthesize some of the complex proteins found in animal tissues, so we're obligated to eat at least -some- meat (in the absence of supplements.) Where does that fit into the plan?
7/7/2012 9:08:36 AM
I love it how in this mythology there were no animals eating other animals and it was only because of the fall that carnivores came about. What complete utter rubbish for which there is zero tangible evidence.
This is why I see all creationists, especially YECs, as cretins.

This is pretty unexceptional for a fundie. Meh'd.
7/7/2012 9:42:20 AM
Poor old God must feel like Wile E. Coyote the way His plans keep coming unstuck.

There's enough stupid in here for a PhD thesis.

Then explain our teeth; our canines are orientated toward rending meat. How does this suit into our intended vegetable diet?
7/7/2012 10:41:46 AM
cooking meat an kill parasites, converts some of the tough parts to a jelly, and can make the meat tender and easier to chew.
since humans have teeth that allow us to tear meat apart and are not needed for eating vegetation that leaves a question of why God would add those if he meant man to be a plant eater.

No sushi for you!
7/7/2012 10:53:55 AM
No, that's not right on many different points and levels.
But this is coming from Yahoo! Answers, so should I really be this suprised?

I've heard this before only last time, it came from militant vegans.
