  1. Lions cannot eat…salads because their shorter intestines cannot digest plants and they would not be able to get all the energy required from …grass. They would defoliate entire ecosystems!

    Humans are omnivores, we have evolved to hunt and kill meat as well as gather fruit and vegetables. The placement of our eyes is proof enough: just like any other predator, they offer stereoscopic vision for that last leap to kill.

  2. People should live however they want to because it brings them joy, not so they can argue about how much better their way of life is from others. Living in self satisfied righteousness is the same as living in hateful bitterness. Must we always be divided into the camps of fanboys or haters about everything?

    Up until “…Hindus do have a higher incidence…” I agree wholeheartedly.
    But after that, probably not. But prove me wrong! Let me see your data! Or at least a credible citation from someone who did research. Being that India has the largest population it should only make sense that you find more people there with the aforementioned high IQs and income.

    The logic is:
    Tension in the mind tends to create tension in the body.
    When stretching the body, mind loses its tension too.
