Except that the megafauna are mostly believed to have been wiped out by humans, with hard evidence in favour of that. Plus, a rather more likely explanation is that the Native Americans simply interbred with the hominids already present in the Americas. They did after all interbreed with some Polynesians in South America.

Science / 300,000-years-old palaeo remains found in Bering Strait Island
« on: August 16, 2018, 08:51:52 pm »

A while back, some scientists claimed to have found evidence of Neanderthal colonisation of the Americas c.115,000 years ago. The above evidence makes it clear that so-called "apemen" had already colonised the Americas much earlier than that, certainly ever since the advent of Homo Erectus. I don't see how it is possible for ancient humans to just visit a couple of islands in the Bering Strait without also going further as well. Well, it proves that the "long, slow" interpretation of evolution is a more likely possibility, and it also shows that we have greatly underestimated the mental/physical abilities of  past hominids.

rami99 is a (human?) spammer. He started out posting just inane, short comments of approval, and, recently, once he reached the point where GS allows people to post links, has done so since. I will remove the posts with links, and leave the other stuff alone.

Off Topic / Admirable man creates his own forest
« on: August 08, 2018, 02:38:20 pm »

I am very impressed. Mankind has destroyed so much that it's heartening to see someone undoing the damage. My concern is, of course, the fact that this forest will die out quickly once the poachers/illegal loggers become more aggressive. A relative of mine has been planting trees in his property in Ireland ever since the EU gave subsidies for tree-planting to Irish owners of  gardens. This was  because the British had wiped out the Irish forests in the past in order to root out the Irish rebels. I also have tried to get new trees planted in an Italian property co-owned by various families, but the idea died a quick death with the various fools and morons(sadly  all related by blood to me) whining bitterly about the cost(which is minimal). Yet the area is prone to erosion as the local Mafia wiped out the olive tree groves on the hills above via arson, so new trees are desperately needed in order to hold up the terrain.

Annoyingly, just this past weekend, I went to what is called a "Naturbad" in the outskirts of Vienna, and experienced this sort of public hysteria. I had planned to visit a particular restaurant afterwards which had served me some raw steak tartare on a previous occasion. This time, the retarded waiter told me, bluntly, that  "for my own sake and others", they always refused to serve this raw meat dish during times when there is a heatwave. Doesn't matter how refrigerated the fridge is etc., those were the rules.

All that said, I do know it is possible to set up a scientific study on RVAF diets, on a low cost. Students do so all the time. Admittedly, given the large numbers of Americans on a RVAF diet((due to laxer laws re the various amendments(1st, 2nd , 5th etc.?), it would have to be US-based, but, presumably, as long as only long-term RVAFers were involved, all of whom had to sign beforehand forms denying them the chance to sue for spurious reasons etc., everything would be fine.

Van's post got me thinking. There are endless numbers of studies which prove the toxicity of cooked foods. However, virtually no studies exist which focus on the benefits of raw animal food other than 1 or 2 based on raw dairy consumption. While very complex studies involving more rigorous standards might cost a lot, I suspect that simple studies which involved just a few RVAFers being tested by doctors might help vs the media a bit and not cost much at all.

*I feel like weeping*  ??? :o >: :(    . I once bought raw liquid honey, stored in jars, in the UK. The toxic stuff caused me to have awful blood-sugar-related-problems that I only otherwise encountered when using salt in more than tiny amounts. Later on, I found out that UK government regulations allowed raw UK honey/honeycomb to be labelled as being "raw", so long as the honey was "only" heated up to 80 degrees Celsius for a "short while".

In other words, avoid dairy however raw, if you have any brains. Even so, I myself managed to easily check, via the Internet(while in the UK in London), endless numerous sources of raw dairy(not necessarily absolutely ALL types of raw dairy), and was able to buy them very cheaply indeed( as of 2010, 2 pounds 50 sterling for 1 litre of raw milk etc.).


I experienced similiar nonsense when I once tried to buy some raw wild mushrooms at a local farmers' market and the seller refused to do so once I was forced to tell her I intended to eat them raw.

I personally avoid veal like the plague, however raw. I used to travel across Europe by car as a child and would encounter these  ghastly,  ghostly-white veal cutlets at motorway restaurants. It's bizarre, but, despite the French reputation re haute cuisine and their love of raw cheeese, the country has become a cult-like devotee of McDonald's and fast food. Come to think of it, even re grassfed, the whole point is to wait until the animal is at least 5 years old before it is fatty enough to be slaughtered and provide real nutrition. The EU's evil law which forces cattle to be slaughtered at 30 months has ruined the British grassfed meat industry.

Again, everyone is different, and we all need to experiment a lot to find out what works best for us as an individual. Do not assume that what works for me will always work for you  as well, therefore.In my own case, I found very quickly, that salt, however high-grade, gave me a very odd, very sick feeling - I think it affected my blood-sugar levels at the time. Anyway, the feeling seemed so harmful, I stopped taking sea-salt/rock-salt until many years later. I still avoid using more than a pinch at a time, and, even then,  only use it once every 6 months or so, preferring other spices such as black pepper, if I must. More and more, I tend to stick to the Instincto theme of "mono-eating", though.

Truly disgusting, and makes one realise that even RVAFers living in remote communities and eating raw wild game and raw wild plants/raw wild seafood etc. may be exposed to such stuff.

General Discussion / Re: Taste of bone marrow
« on: August 02, 2018, 12:20:25 pm »
"Stefansson also mentions, interestingly, that marrow from the upper leg(humerus and femur) is hard and tallowy at room-temperature while the marrow from the lower leg is soft and creamy. The Eskimoes, apparently, preferred to cook the harder marrow, but preferred to eat the softer marrow in raw form."
