Amazingly, lots of people still believe that they are ”omnivores”, despite the fact that there are no scientific facts to support these claims, and this wrong classification is based on ”dietary habits” or ”observations” that humans generally eat a wide variety of plant and animal foods, not on anatomical design. Truth is, humans have nothing in common with true meat eaters.
”True carnivores (and omnivores) salivate about the idea of eating whole prey animals when they see them. Humans do not. We’re interested in eating the body parts only because they’ve been removed from the original animal and processed, and because we grew up eating them, making it seem perfectly normal. It’s amazing how much of a disconnect we’ve been able to learn about the difference between animals and food. As GoVeg puts it:
While carnivores take pleasure in killing animals and eating their raw flesh, any human who killed an animal with his or her bare hands and dug into the raw corpse would be considered deranged. Carnivorous animals are aroused by the scent of blood and the thrill of the chase. Most humans, on the other hand, are revolted by the sight of raw flesh and cannot tolerate hearing the screams of animals being ripped apart and killed. The bloody reality of eating animals is innately repulsive to us, more proof that we were not designed to eat meat.
Ask yourself: When you see dead animals on the side of the road, are you tempted to stop for a snack? Does the sight of a dead bird make you salivate? Do you daydream about killing cows with your bare hands and eating them raw? If you answered “no” to all of these questions, congratulations—you’re a normal human herbivore—like it or not. Humans were simply not designed to eat meat. Humans lack both the physical characteristics of carnivores and the instinct that drives them to kill animals and devour their raw carcasses.
Ok, for one?
Of fucking course we don’t share anything in common with “true meat eaters”. Are you blind? It’s because we’re not meat eaters. We’re fucking OMNIVORES.
Herbivores =/= Omnivores =/= Carnivores.
Each fucking subset has evolved differently from the rest and has evolutionary sets that fit their diet and their diet specifically. So while we don’t resemble “true meat eaters” because we were never Carnivores in the first place, we also don’t resemble “true Herbivores” either because we evolved past that. Want to know what we DO resemble though? OTHER FUCKING OMNIVORES.
Second: Actually, humans never ate raw meat in the first place and anyone who says so is a fucking idiot because archaeology has already disproven this. And if we did, it was for a VERY short period and not long enough to fuck with our evolution.
Fun fucking fact: The introduction of meat to our diet directly corresponds anthropologically with THE INVENTION OF COOKING AND ADDITION OF IT TO OUR LIFESTYLE. Therefore while we evolved to be Omnivores and eat meat as a small part of our diet, we never evolved to eat RAW meat.
Third? Jesus fucking Christ. We are not evolutionarily equipped to go out and catch prey with our bare hands.
Why? Because, again, WE DID NOT EVOLVE TO DO THAT.
So instead of needing to evolve the capability to run at fast speeds, long claws capable of rending flesh, and have a mouth full of 20 something sharp as fuck teeth? We developed tools. We developed cooking. We developed group hunting techniques. And since we’re still. Fucking. Here today instead of dying out like evolutionary failures are prone to doing? I’d say its worked out for us in the end pretty fucking well in the end so far.
We have a much higher brain capacity. We don’t NEED to and never did because we are more intelligent, have opposable thumbs and were capable of developing things to aid us before these things were evolutionarily required of us. We were, literally, never meant to or were in an evolutionary position that required us to catch our living prey like Carnivores did.
HUMANS HAVE BASICALLY BEEN ONE LONG STRAIN OF “FUCK EVOLUTION”.
Lastly I just want to touch on this ridiculous thing someone wrote on this post at some point: “Obv. I never said they didn’t. They even evolved to consume milk, well most have. But that doesn’t mean it was physically intended for our bodies originally. That’s the point of this whole post. Not what we’ve “evolved” to do but what our bodies and minds are hard wired for FROM THE VERY BEGINNING TO NOW. And it’s mostly about the mental state it would take that 90% of people don’t have”.
Like… Are you kidding? Please tell me you are fucking kidding. Do you know how evolution works in terms of diet? Food source becomes scarce while another becomes plentiful, species adapts to eat said food source… Or it dies. What we were not originally designer to eat CHANGES as new food sources evolve, and as we are required to adapt and evolve. The more food you adapt and evolve to eat, the more likely your species is to continue surviving as food sources come in and out of availability.
Literally. Diet depends on fucking evolution and evolution is widely dependent on diet in some circumstances. You cannot fucking remove them and separate them and pretend one isn’t necessary to have this fucking discussion. You cannot take a fucking issue about diet, claim we’re something we’re not, and completely erase the evolutionary portion of the fucking argument because IT IS A REQUIRED PORTION.
YOU ARE LITERALLY ATTEMPTING TO ERASE CONTEXT FROM A SITUATION THAT 100% REQUIRES. THE FUCKING. CONTEXT. OF EVOLUTION.
DO YOU FUCKERS EVEN KNOW HOW TO FUCKING SCIENCE?!
Yes, there very much is plenty of scientific evidence that Omnivore is a classification of diet. So is Fruitivore, Insectivore, Carnivore, Herbavore, and several other classifications.
The Omnivore dietary classification is seriously defined as an animal whose diet and lifestyle relies on obtaining protein and energy from both plant and animal sources- which may also include animal byproducts such as eggs and dairy, or things like insects, fungi and algae.
New flash: Humans are not the only fucking Omnivores and the classification is not based solely on the dietary needs of HUMANS, but the observation of SEVERAL OTHER ANIMALS.
- Corvids are Omnivores.
- Bears (save for a few species) are Omnivores.
- Pigs are fucking Omnivores.
- Badgers are Omnivores.
- Foxes (some species) are Omnivores.
- Chickens are fucking Omnivoers.
Your science is fucking bunk.
Get the fuck out.
I totally thought this post was about how silly “raw diets” are. Then I was pissed off at the anti-meat bullshit. But then the reply to that crap… the science… the facts… it’s so beautiful.
So i think everyone has seen Hover Orca around! I wanted to find out where he was from so i did some digging!
(this here is where the photos from!) And Man! That photo album! <3
X <Direct to image
He’s a British Columbian orca - photos taken at Campbell River. Long shot if anyone has an ID? Regardless, thought it would be nice to put a place to the image that has been so wildly spread.
(Here’s an article about hover orca’s display! X )
A girl I’m friends with on Facebook posted this status and I love it so much.
PSA: IF SOMEBODY ASKS YOU TO STOP TOUCHING THEM IN ANY WAY, EVEN IF YOU TWO ARE FRIENDS, YOU HAVE TO STOP TOUCHING THEM.
PLEASE READ. WILL NOT HURT TO AND FORWARD.
Kids are putting Drano, tin foil, and a little water in plastic drink bottles
and capping it up - leaving it on lawns, in mail boxes, in gardens, on driveways etc. just waiting for you to pick it up intending to put it in the rubbish, but you’ll never make it!!!
If the bottle is picked up, and the bottle is shaken even just a little - in about 30 seconds or less it builds up enough gas which then explodes with enough force to remove some your extremities. The liquid that comes out is
boiling hot as well.
Don’t pick up any plastic bottles that may be lying in your yards or in the gutter, etc.
Pay attention to this. A plastic bottle with a cap. A little Drano. A little water. A small piece of foil.
Disturb it by moving it; and BOOM!! No fingers left and other serious effects to your face, eyes, etc.
Please ensure that everyone that may not have email access are also informed of this.
I’ve dealt with these before. If you find one:
- Do not touch it
- Do not touch it
- Clear the area around it. It will explode on its own in time.
- Once it explodes, do not make contact with the liquid inside. If needed, flush it away with large amounts of water.
- Do not try to detonate it. You’ll probably be disfigured.
I’ve seen what these can do. The acidic liquid inside can strip the paint off a car.
when i visited vancouver these were everywhere. it’s not a fucking joke they’re actually scary
Just a reminder that there are awful shitty people out there doing awful shitty things to everyone else
there was a bunch of these at disneyland
i found one in my back yard, when i let my dogs out, i pulled them back inside, took my cousins bb shotgun and shot it from a safe distance (i was in my house and shot from the screen door. When it went off, my family and neighbors came running to see if everything was ok. I told them what happened and to watch out for them.
These things are not a joke! When we went to check the damage there was a fucking hole in the ground. The dirt in my yard is like CLAY.
This shit is bad news
PLEASE DON’T BE AN ASSHAT. PLEASE DON’T LEAVE BOMBS IN PEOPLE’S YARDS.
hoLY FUCKING SHIT ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!? JESUS CHRIST! Please followers keep this in mind and do not touch those things. Fuck. I can’t believe that something like that even exists…
FRIENDS IF YOU FIND ONE OF THESE FUCKING HELL DO NOT DETONATE IT YOURSELF.
CALL THE FUCKING POLICE PLEASE.
WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE
this reminds me of that little shit from the Butterfly Effect
why do white boys exist
People in the night vale fandom who insist you have to change your headcanon if they don’t like it are like the god damn Thought Police, I swear.
Are you talking about the people with a PoC headcanon who are constantly being attacked by white supremacists? Or are you talking about the people with a white headcanon who constantly derail the conversation about the continuous racism in the fandom?
we’d probably already have hoverboards if we didn’t spend so much time arguing over whether women are people and if they should be allowed to do science
I mean yeah cause hover boards are more essential to life than basic fucking human rights.
you probably misunderstood this post
