I thought they prayed to Jah? Grin While incensing the meat with primo ganja...

Although, if I was presented with it, I probably would.  In some places, dogs are like any livestock.  As long as I knew it wasn't some person's pet, then I think I'd be ok with it.  Weirded out, but ok.

I'm sure if it was accompanied by some Northwestern Mongolian earwax, any reservations would rapidly melt away.

I've only heard the vaguest reports about it, as, apparently it is quite rare and difficult to obtain--not to mention expensive.  These same vague reports claim though that it is well worth the effort (and danger) involved.  Words such as whiskey-like, and spice, and pungent, and intoxicating have been floated about concerning it.  Please, if your broker is able to obtain some, P.M. me!

But only up to 2% alcohol.  Where's the fun in that?  Although, I wouldn't mind trying that. Ayran took getting used to, but it's delicious.  Acquiring tastes for different things take time, although my battle has been olives.  Try and try again does not work.  I hate them.

Isn't the paleo diet pagan? I mean, it says that mankind is not supposed to eat bread, which obviously contradicts some extremely fundamental aspects of the Christian faith. I mean obviously you can follow the diet and still be a Christian but the philosophy that would make the diet effective directly contradicts Christianity. It's kind of like evolution in that regard. Maybe practically useful but theoretically it would not be compatible with Christianity.

The stretch is yours with Satanists invoking curses on the food you eat. Why is it not possible for a Satanist somewhere on earth to invoke Satan and curse all the grass fed meat in the world. Should we worry about it? How would it affect the grass fed beef in any way?



Or maybe Aliens from the planet Alderone ..Could happen.

I gave an extreme example to illustrate the dilemma..You took things even further not to clarify but to confound. You would rather detour the conversation to the nature of the example than deal with the actual question.

Here is the question once again. If someone from a Pagan or Muslim religion "Blessed" your food, would you be comfortable still eating it?

I think that is a judgement call. You seem not to be concerned. Thanks for your vote.


If some amorphous ill defined evil person put a general curse on all the foods I prefer to eat ( like grass fed beef) I probably would not care.

If I went to a Halal butcher who blessed the very food I was about to eat, I would care and pay some attention to the situation. My Priest has mentioned in passing not to eat Halal meat, so I am pretty sure there is a divided opinion among Orthodox concerning food "Blessed" by Muslims. I would expect that food offered on a Hindu Altar, like what the Hare Krishna's serve, would be strictly off limits.

That's my vote
I haven't seen any evidence of aliens, but I understand that there were thousands of witches burned at the stake in Europe, and that there has been established a "church" of Satan in San Francisco.
Anyway, as far as eating meat blessed by a non-Christian, there was an article recently in the news, according to which Jewish rabbis hold a chicken over a sinner's head and swing it around and above his head so that the sins of the sinner will go to the chicken, who then has his throat slit by the rabbi. Now it was also reported that these dead chickens with slit throats are donated to a food mission for poor people, who then eat them. But is it OK to eat a chicken upon which has been transferred a whole lot of ugly sins? If the ugly sins of the repentant sinners are now in the dead chicken, will they come into your body if you eat them?

No, the paleo diet isn't pagan.

That's just one expression of scapegoatism. Many tribal cultures have something similar or other, and it's just superstition in all its forms.

At first, I thought this was a one-off thing.  But now that I think about it, I believe that all the chickens that are killed with Jewish sins scapegoated(scapechickened?) onto them are simply sent to Popeye's.  Believe my, my brethren, Popeye's chicken is sinful.....ly delicious.

Sinful........ly delicious encounters that are cloaked in the shroud of nighttime darkness are always perceived as being far more mystical than the same activity done in the light of the sun's rays.  That's just the way it is  Cool.

Isn't the paleo diet pagan? I mean, it says that mankind is not supposed to eat bread, which obviously contradicts some extremely fundamental aspects of the Christian faith. I mean obviously you can follow the diet and still be a Christian but the philosophy that would make the diet effective directly contradicts Christianity. It's kind of like evolution in that regard. Maybe practically useful but theoretically it would not be compatible with Christianity.

The modern wheat plant is not the same as what was used to make bread in biblical times. We have hybridized it a thousand times to withstand wind and cold and to be short stalked and yield more and be resistant to diseases and bugs.

We have made the a naturally addictive properties of wheat even more powerful and it's ability to spike hunger, all genetically modified by humans... The bread we eat today is a far cry from ancient times.

Traditional people usually ferment grains to get the bad stuff out. If you want to eat bread, sourdough is the best option and if you can get an Ancient form of the grain ( still can be had online) even better.

An even better option would be a sprouted grain bread.  Sourdough is good though.

At first, I thought this was a one-off thing.  But now that I think about it, I believe that all the chickens that are killed with Jewish sins scapegoated(scapechickened?) onto them are simply sent to Popeye's.  Believe my, my brethren, Popeye's chicken is sinful.....ly delicious.
But if you eat and digest all those sins and they are now in your body, then what?

There are no nutrients in sins. Do we really have to spell out the mechanics of the final stage of digestion?

Precisely what I was going to say.  Thank you!

But, chicken on the other hand....

Unfortunately, 'no nutrients' is not a synonym for 'no calories'... Cheesy

Sins have no calories.  Deep-fried chicken, unfortunately, does.

Calories can be your friends.  Without enough of them, you die.  Simple.  Too many of them, well....how many is too many?

The road to excess leads to the palace of wisdom... for we never know what is enough until we know what is more than enough.

In this case, I'd say having to negotiate doorways sideways is definitely a 'more than enough' sign.

Not so fast, my friend!!  Taking nothing away from the otherwise wonderful wisdom of our beloved matriarch, one must always take into consideration the width of the doorway and for whom it was designed.  Those designed for Hobbits are not necessarily the same as those designed for Dwarves or Orcs, much less Elves, and those of us humans who live under rocks.

True, but let's not try to extrapolate so much from a single phrase like our friends, the solascriptists.  If a Hobbit, living in a hobbit home, with Hobbit doors can't get through it, then he has had more than enough.  An Orc does not live in a Hobbit home, nor does a Hobbit live in an Orc home.  It would be like me travelling to your rock and finding I can't fit, because I'm too fat.  But, lo, I go to my own home and I merely have to grease my sides with Crisco and I enter a room easily enough.

I first discovered Popeye's on a late night road trip from Chicago to St Louis maybe three years ago.  It was fried chicken θεωρία.  Wonderful! 
I really wish all Popeye's were consistent with food quality.

I'm telling you their commercials look so mouth watery and when you get the food it tastes nothing like what's on TV.

Except there have been a few timed when its extremely good.

I don't really have one near me.

I live in an area where there are multiple pizza shops next to each other on one block.

So many postings.  What kind of diet?  Also, I agree with you on Popeye's.  That's why when you find a good location, you tattoo the address to your hand.  That way, in the event of Memento-style amnesia, you can start off each adventurous day with a box of Popeye's and biscuits.  And honey.  Gotta have the honey for the biscuits.

Shouldn't happen. Chains are supposed to have things regularized, so that it should taste the same from day to day, or from state to state for that matter.

But then Popeye always was a hard one to understand.

Yeah, but most fast food places are like this, sadly.

I feel for you, I don't have one near me either.  There's just one KFC.  There are more pizzerias and Chinese places.  But also a good variety of other types of food.
