    Heh, no I did, and sorry for the unintentional trolling. It's just such a fun argument that I fall into it so easily. Other than ethics I'm with ya.

    Yep, they don't need to turn methods such as regurgitation, coprophagia, or develop extremely long and/or multi-chambered stomachs to deal with the digestion of coarse vegetable matter, nor develop molars that resemble bricks.

    The argument... actually, not argument, but the fact is that although all complex animals use bacteria in their digestive system, carnivores do not require bacteria or digestive systems that can handle cellulose. Carnivores use different approaches: digestive acids. One good example is a croc or a constrictor.

    By the same token, obligate herbivores do not need to develop carnassials, canines or massive incissors for shearing meat.

    Faith|conscience|ethics|42 =/= biological adaptation.

    As it's been said (10+1)! times, a matter of conscience is not a problem nor an issue to be discussed in the PT forums. The problem is trying to use pseudo-science to justify this matter of conscience by thwarting and misrepresenting the physical characteristics that we posses as members of the Homo genus, as primates, as eutherian mammals, as animals as well as make us (or our evolutionary ancestors similar or different from other animals past or present.

    Nobody has done so. To choose is to be human, but to pretend that the ability to choose vegetarianism is scientific proof that we cannot ingest meat or that meat never had any role in the evolution of not just our species but on the entire Homo genus, or worse, to equate vegetarianism with herbivory and conscience with biological adaption, that's just stupid.

    But since stupidity is a human quality, I guess that's human too.

    Bacteriology[/url]]Bacterial species living inside a human being are found in the gastrointestinal (GI), or digestive, tract. There are actually more bacteria in the large intestine alone, than there are cells in the human body. From the mouth to the anus, these tiny life forms aid in breaking down and digesting food, converting nutrients and dietary fiber for absorption, synthesizing vitamins, and degrading toxins. They also aid the immune system to develop vigorous responses. More than half of the body’s immune tissue is located in the lining of the small intestines, called Peyer’s Patches. All of the bacteria in the GI tract are expelled and renewed daily.

    Arjuna, we don't digest cellulose. Stop looking. He's asking you rhetorically.

    Quoted from that last .gov link:

    ================================================== =======
    Actually humans don't contain the bacteria necessary to digest cellulose.
    Cows and other ruminants do and therefore they can digest cellulose.
    Interestingly, termites aren't able to digest cellulose either. They have a
    symbiotic relationship with a bacterium that lives in their guts. The
    bacteria get a source of food, and they break down the cellulose into
    something that the termites can digest.

    ^^^ Are those statements, paragraphs, quotes? What exactly? Sources?

    Not that I'm questioning the veracity of it, but for ****'s fucking sake man, this thread is so fucking long, and all of you guys have been here in this website and forum for fucking long enough to know better that this forum is not freaking AOL teen chat service.
