When you see dead animals on the side of the road, are you tempted to stop and snack on them?
No. Because I'm not a scavenger. You'll find rather a lot of carnivores prefer to obtain their food fresh rather than find it already dead and rotting.
Does the sight of a dead bird make you salivate?
Lying on the side of a road? No. Lying on a grill? You bet your ass it does. Actually now I kind of want some grilled chicken...
Do you daydream about killing cows with your bare hands and eating them raw?
No. I don't daydream about killing much of anything. And given that we've evolved with cooked meals for tens of thousands of years I'm not particularly keen on eating my meat that way. Do YOU daydream about ripping up a wheat stalk and eating it on the spot? Or do you prefer your wheat processed into bread? Fucking hypocrite.
If you answered “no” to these questions, congratulationslike it or not, you’re an herbivore.
If we answered "no" to the question of whether we're scavengers or wolves then we're herbivores by default? I think you need some meat in your diet; the nutritional deficiency is beginning to take its toll on your already lacklustre cognitive capacity.
According to biologists and anthropologists who study our anatomy and our evolutionary history, humans are herbivores who are not well suited to eating meat.
If you were any more full of shit I could sell you to a farmer for fertilizer.
Humans lack both the physical characteristics of carnivores and the instinct that drives them to kill animals and devour their raw carcasses.
How do you figure that? We have forward-facing eyes, sharp teeth, we're built for pursuit and -- big one here -- we FUCKING EAT MEAT. Have for tens of thousands of years. What, do you think one of our ancestors accidentally confused a cow for a blueberry bush one day and nobody ever realized the mistake? If we're anything it's technical omnivores with a significant carnivorous bias. If the meat didn't work for us we'd know on account of everyone getting sick and dying of goddamn malnutrition. And there are people who feel a desire to personally kill the animals they consume. They're called hunters. It's a tradition harkening back to the earliest days of our species -- the appropriately named hunter/gatherer period. You fucking idiot.
