Simple Way to Determine if a Species is Designed to Eat Animals
In a world full of billions who consume a diet that consists of both plant and animal products it is difficult to separate what we see and do from what really makes any sense. It can be said that humans were "designed" to drive automobiles or fly in airplanes but if the speaker has any logic, these statements are simply untrue. In fact it is the opposite, automobiles and airplanes were designed to carry humans and not the other way around.
What was the human body designed to consume? Most will say both animals and vegetables. Okay so if we are designed to consume animals then why do we rarely, in fact almost never chase down, kill and consume an animal that we see in nature somewhere? Now I am not talking about the use of a weapon like the hunter who uses a shotgun or a bow and arrow to hunt down an animal but I am talking about using the body parts that we humans were born with.
We live on a planet with thousands of other species of animals and the general rule an observer can see in these animals when still in nature will have everything that they need to find, track down, chase, capture and kill their food on their body. Most of the time they will eat their kill right on the spot that they killed it.
Have you ever watched a cat capture kill and eat a mouse or a rat? They have a sense that drives them to movement, in fact cats do not see colors well but they catch movement very well and will be alerted as soon as some sort of possible prey is moving close by. Suddenly they start to salivate and their tails will prop up. They will accelerate quickly to get to the mouse and then have their paw or teeth on the mouse in seconds. Soon the mouse which is scared for it's life will either try to run or it will try to play dead and stay in one place. The cat is smart enough to know this and will probe the mouse with it's paw to find out if it will take off running. As soon as the motion starts the cat will attack again and will repeat this until either the mouse is dead or close to dead and can't continue trying to escape. Once the mouse is dead the cat will find a quiet location to sit with the mouse and he or she will tear it apart and consume every part of the mouse from the tail to the whiskers on it's face. In fact the cat eats everything, including the stomach contents and the contents of the colon (defecation) of the mouse. He or she eats the claws, the nails, the bones, the hair, the flesh and even the cartilage holding the bones together as well as the tail, ears, eyes, head etc. The cat seems to relish eating the mouse and enjoys every single part.
Humans on the other hand will eat only certain predetermined parts of an animal, such as the muscles of the torso or the leg and then of course these specified parts are almost always cooked and many kinds of flavorings are used to make the flesh of these animals palatable. Few people will just eat a piece of an animal's body without any kind of sauce or at least some salt, pepper, marinade or some other flavoring like garlic, onions, spices and vegetables. Sugar is often used in many recipes to make the flavor more like what our body was really designed for which is fruit. Even the cooking method is there to hide the fact that it is an animal being eaten and to change the flavor. For example many people enjoy grilling animal bodies so there is a black coating on them, which changes the taste of the flesh giving it a smokey flavor. Often the entire piece of flash is hidden in a stew or a curry so that it is totally unseen and is covered by a spicy sauce that hides the fleshy nature of the animal's body.
All species on Earth have all the facilities to track, capture, kill and eat the foods that they were designed to eat. Humans need to create tools to do this and nearly never eat the animal in the form that it was killed in, raw and still covered in skin, fur and with all of the internal organs intact. Humans almost always "clean" their kill by removing the internal organs. These internal organs are not dirt but are parts of the animal and if a human was designed to eat animals they would relish eating these as much as a cat does eating them from a mouse.
Except for one single Youtube video I have seen, I have never seen a human kill and eat an animal with his or her bare hands and teeth. In fact I would be willing to bet that many humans would stop consuming animals if they had no other choice but to chase down their own prey with bare hands and kill it with their teeth and then eat it without any tools whatsoever. We would soon be in a nearly vegetarian world if this ever happened. People just do not have the will or desire to do this in order to eat an animal, they want to eat the select parts that they have been eating in the manner they have been eating it, killed by someone else and prepared to taste in a certain way and look a certain way.
Until I see this as the norm in human populations, I will have to go with logic and not with the numbers as I certainly can not see how animal flesh is a food that a human body was designed for. Further information about this is in the last post where I explained that eating a diet that our body is designed for will not cause harm to our body, this is a big false when it comes to animal flesh and humans, most of the modern diseases are absolutely due to a diet rich in animal flesh and other animal products. The wealthier the country, the more animal products are consumed, the more cases of specific disease are found.
