Re: US Healthcare Law upheld in Supreme Court

I remember one particular instance where I got into what was (From your perspective) a serious argument on whether gays should be able to marry. My reason for why they shouldn't be able to was that they don't deserve the tax breaks that come from marriage because they can't reproduce. ..And you beli...

Re: US Healthcare Law upheld in Supreme Court

I don't think you follow me. 75% of the posts I've made on this forum were specifically to troll you. You are the quintessential whiny, know-it-all liberal who can't see when he's being made fun of and thus I really had no choice.

Re: US Healthcare Law upheld in Supreme Court

Australia has just introduced a carbon tax, and it's a similar thing; the opposition has predicted the collapse of our economy. I have sent him a letter proposing a bet of 20 cans of soup on the issue, but on the assumption that he's wrong, by the time we have our next election (probably mid to lat...

Re: Gun laws in the United States

Semi-Auto and Automatic weapons should be banned altogether. Hand guns should be up to the state. 4. My final thought, is related to the question of "rights." Very often, discussions on guns devolve into people arguing that there is a Constitutional right to owning a gun. While there are compelling ...

Also, I shouldn't have to explain to you that their are contradictory studies coming out about meat/plant consumption all the time. Two articles mean nothing in the grand scheme of things.

Jeremy, the piece stands alone as a profound article of interest, which after all, is the topic of this thread. I've had no shits left to give about your arguments after I crushed them with my peer-reviewed article.

Goodbye!

Saw this profound article of interest on the bulletin board of my physics building. Keep an eye out for the marrow reference

Yes, and faster weaning times have huge repercussions for a given population. In the face of all this information I've presented thus far, you're basically falling back on the fact that article didn't specify "bone marrow" as the specific animal food source that allowed us to wean faster as early Ho...

The impact of carnivory on time to weaning in humans and mammals in general demonstrated by our model supports the hypothesis that meat-eating even at levels below fully specialized carnivory may have had a major evolutionary effect on mammalian development and life history [4]. With respect to tim...

Look, I know this stuff is probably tough for you to handle being that you grew up eating a strict diet of kale and seaweed that your nutcase parents probably foraged directly out of the ocean, but it's time to face facts, young Jerome. Carnivory was the leading cause of the rapid increase in human ...

And yes, the introduction does spend a little time explaining that the authors claims about carnivory leading to our development are only a theory. As you (should) know, no hypothesis is every truly proven; only substantiated by experimentation and data. Lots of peer reviewed articles begin in such ...

Read the entire thing not the first paragraph kiddo. In fact, just read the discussion portion. The critical link between time to weaning and dietary profile adds to the general notion that the evolution of the hominids - and that of Homo in particular - was associated with a change towards higher-q...

haha little Jeremy, trying to sound smart on semantics as usual. You realize you could say "ultimate hypothesis" or "proximate hypothesis" to any animal biologist and they'd understand immideatly what you meant, that is, if they weren't a nit-picky Australian with a well developed inferiority comple...

Also, proximate and ultimate hypotheses are very much accepted terms, as you'd know if you had ever taken a animal behavior class.

You keep talking about Chimp diets as if the diet of a Chimpanzee is applicable to the specific conversation we're having. Chimpanzee's and Human's last shared a common ancestor 4-7 million years ago, and it's been demonstrated that an populations ability to adapt to a new food source can occur in M...

"Healthy" is a relative term that has no place in any evolutionary discussion such as this. What you should be focused on is whether a change in diet from early hominids to later hominids conferred an increased level of fitness (Evolutionary fitness, my friend) to those later hominid groups that all...

Where did the nutritional surplus necessary for such rapid brain growth come from?
