    I think the key - from an earlier post - is the capacity to learn beyond a merely Pavlovian level.

    Yes, it is. And I find it astounding more people don't think this way. I think it comes back to the political nature and that Pavlovian penchant for a "blanket." really. I see no reason - sans one believing the Bible is literal truth from start to finish (i.e. no metaphors at all) - that one couldn't accept that "evolution," the process or mechanism, is not a creation of God.

    Humans started out eons ago eating meat. Tools such as spears and later fire facilitated hunting. Many had to survive in the ice age. If I remember correctly humans came to North America over the land bridge following the animals that provided their main food.

    Later, cultivation (grains) was developed. But, we evolved to eat meat.

    Yes.

    Humans developed the ability to break down a good deal of the cholesterol that meat puts in our blood stream. Not all of it, but what we are able to do is what separates us from our precursors.
