Om nom nom nom!

This group is for omnivores only.

Our current mascot, located in the group profile image, is a Kodiak bear (Ursus arctos middendorffi), also known as the Alaskan Brown bear, or Taquka-aq. Image supplied by Lady of Hats, and released under a Creative Commons license.

Group information is in progress. Group input is encouraged.

Ooh, look! TOS, FAQ, Rules & Guidelines, BBQ!

The Ning TOS (Terms of Service) trump everything.

The Atheist Nexus FAQ (aka frequently asked questions) is a good resource. It might pay to scan through it on a semi-regular basis.

The Nexus (Atheist Nexus) Rules & Guidelines might also be quite useful to read on a semi-regular basis.

Mmmm... BBQ!

Thanks sk8eycat! I agree with you completely! I appreciate you sending the information about the book - I bought it!

I need to rant about something...Specifically, twits that still claim that "Low fat food is good for you,  " Butter, bacon, juicy steaks are not."  Bah humbug!

So I wrote this about an hour ago, and sent it to all my friends:

*********************

I don't know how to post a rant to my profile, so I hope you don't mind if I spread it this way.  I'll try to figure things out later, but this is important.  K?


*************************


Anybody who wants to know the truth about "scientific" research, weight loss, diabetes, heart disease, and diet, needs to read GOOD CALORIES, BAD CALORIES by Gary Taubes.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_Calories,_Bad_Calories


We've been lied to for 60+ years, ladies and gentlemen!  Almost all the stuff that's come out of the NIH and CDC about diet and disease....fat and serum cholesterol, is based on ONE MAN's faulty work, and spead by his disciples who graduated from Harvard and went to work for the gov't.


I'm talking about Dr. Frederick J. Stare, who was head of the Nutrition Science Dept at Harvard for almost his entire career.  He also wrote a syndicated newspaper column that was very popular (my mother thought he was second only to god, and did herself some serious harm over 30 years of following his "advice."), and spread the word that fatty foods like meat and eggs were the sole cause of cholesterol in the arteries.  WRONG!


 /end rant....for now

That'd be a perfect "Mindfuck:" picture--much better than all those with one black guy standing behind a bunch of white girls.

Heh! That ad at the top of the page just now is "Primal" Meatless vegan jerky" hahaha!

You can get them back on Veggieween, the latest thing to come out of the nighttime sleep ramblings of Sleep Talkin' Man:

"It's time to don our cow masks and scare the salad out of her. I love Veggieween."

According to his wife: "This morning, Adam spent quite a while brainstorming the antics that transpire on Veggieween. I was so sorry that I had turned the recorder off. I'll do my best to recreate some here:

'Veggieween! When the meat eaters get dressed up in animal costumes to torment vegetarians. It's a celebration of all that is good about eating meat. You go knocking door to door, with an enormous skewer, and people slide pieces of meat onto your stick. Then, everyone gets together in the park for a huge barbeque. Any vegetarian households, you tar and fur the house, and you— no, you can't throw blood at people's places, that's just too much— …fat! Yes, you drizzle fat all over their doorstep.'

I just want to say here that Adam totally respects vegetarianism and loves animals (even though he sometimes eats them)."
