I happen to be related to someone who was religious before turning Paleo. Does anyone know of people who are religious and paleo, who happen to be indoctrinated yet logical? Or have any stories regarding them both intertwined? Accepted answer... (more)
I find it interesting how people not only get offended/defensive when I share diet-related information with them -- information that, of course, doesn't align with the mainstream rhetoric -- but also when I'm simply doing my own thing and not... (more)
I'm curious about the demographics of the paleo community. Is this information available? I'm interested in these types of demographics: Age: Average age of a paleo person? Would it be good to see this number lowered significantly? Gender: Are... (more)
I was born Hindu, and grew up around a lot of vegetarian Hindus (but my family is non-veg, thank heavens!). My religion recommends not eating meat for mental and spiritual clarity. The logic is that an animal feels stress when it dies, and the... (more)
To start with, almost every practicing religion has regular IFing; Jews - yom kippur and some very pious Jews can add personal fast days on mon/thurs Christians - Lent (think autophagey), fridays of advent, and ember days; also ash wed and good... (more)
when I was vegan I noticed that the majority of vegans were very left liberal, marxists and usually atheist, vegans that were conservative/ not atheist were a minority and usually shunned by the vegan majority ( I know this first hand since Im... (more)
As a non-believer, evolution seems to be a very rational and scientific explanation to the organisms and life systems here on earth. Because I believe I am a product of evolution, it's natural to align my eating habits with my ancestors. I think... (more)
Has anyone ever encountered opposition to paleo on the basis of creationist beliefs? Just curious if there is ever backlash from people of the very literally religious persuasion.
I found this amazing article about a new site that may be "the garden of eden." http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1157784/Do-mysterious-stones-mark-site-Garden-Eden.html Some interesting quotes: "When people make the transition... (more)
In all honesty I, at first, wanted to ask this tongue-in-cheek question as a reaction to the recent religious threads on paleohacks. However, I am quite sincere in wanting to take the same retrospective analysis towards the spiritual traditions... (more)
This blog is great and it's written by a pagan paleo http://wildernesschilde.blogspot.com/ You might also be interested in Don't Sleep There Are Snakes, which is about a missionary who goes to help convert a tribe. The tribe is a sort-of... (more)
I am interested in what your religion's ancient prophet says about food, diet, and low carb eating. I predict that it aligns very nicely to Paleo because modern foods weren't around back then. What do you say? This is an honest question. I can't... (more)
I have been following a loose PaNu diet (I still consume dairy) for 7 months with great results (lost 30 pounds, 3 inches on my waistline, and feel great), but I have been debating on converting to Orthodox Christianity as well, I have been thrown... (more)
I am the kind of person that rejects anything illogical. I just read some about deism and it seems that my belief can be best described as deism.I want to know what other paleo and evolution/science adherents believe here, and what they think... (more)
I have to eat bread at 3 meals every weekend and on a few other days throughout the year. What do you recommend for maintaining a Paleo-centric diet during the rest of the week to try and offset the obligatory carb intake each weekend?
You could also try spelt, teff, and eikhorn grains. They fall under kosherut rules if that's what your looking for. I personally tried spelt recently and had problems but I'm sensitive to a ton of foods.
I was wondering who follows the perfect health diet or follows their blog? Have any of you out there who are big pork eaters (one of the foods I just never really found a taste for)seen the article, which reveals that "Pork consumption has a... (more)
So I was checking out Against the Grain by Richard Manning and came across a sentence from Genesis 3:19 ("In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground" and this was pretty much God's punishment for Adam & Eve... (more)
Hey April, I'm happy to respect your religion. Please respect the rules of the road here at PH, the first of which is: "Ask questions" related to the Paleo lifestyle. Your wish "to open this up for discussion" is not a question.
I'm a Jew, though a fairly unorthodox one. Being relatively new to paleo, I'm enjoying the interesting thinking coming about as I look to the Tanakh on eating paleo, and how my better, healthier lifestyle fitsin with my faith. To any Paleo Jews... (more)
I am basically secular, but my mom is Renewal...she eats mostly paleo, and feels good about eating what she calls eco-kosher...grassfed meats, wild fish, etc. She feels that this fits with her spiritual beliefs, and wouldn't feel good about eating... (more)
With all these threads on religion, I felt rather left out :( So anyone out there who follows the great Elder gods? How do you deal with the prohibition on eating cephalopods? I miss calamari :( What about the commandment to eat as many cute and... (more)
