I thought vegetarians who don’t eat meat are quite out of their mind. Then I met believers of Jainism who not only don’t eat meat, but also don’t eat any animal product like milk, honey or egg. Then I met the some weirdo who don’t eat any cooked or processed food. They only eat raw vegetables, fruits or nuts without any salad dressing. They claim all food has some sort of life energy which will disappear after cooking. Obviously no one with a right mind would believe in that superstitious non-sense﹐ yet I learn this stupid diet from a colleague who seems reasonable and intelligent. Maybe we can’t judge whether a person is a faddist or not from his appearance alone. You never know what ridiculous beliefs someone may hold inside his messed up brain.
According to anthropologist, eating meat and cooking food is what make us human as human. Human evolve to the top of the food chain and set us apart from other animals all thanks to meat and cooked food. Herbivores diet cannot supply the extra calories required to develop the brain of our prehistoric ancestors. Eating meat allow human to have huge brain with small guts that jump start human intelligence. Cooking breaks down starch molecules into more digestible fragment, break down amino-acid chain in protein molecules for the digestive enzymes and physically soften the food. Eating cooked food is more calories efficient, so human can further divert more energy for brain development. If human intelligence originates from eating meat and cooked food, then not eating meat or cooked food must be the lack of intelligence. Vegetarian, Jainism and raw foodist defy our human identify and evolutionary advantage. Their beliefs is on the verge of a dangerous path that lead us devolve back to animals.
Laminin is just one of the boring protein chemical inside our body. It has four arms allow it bind to other molecules. The three short arms bind to other laminin and the longer arm binds to cells, hence it forms membranes as well as internal organs. In short laminin makes our body holds together, without laminin our body will falls apart.
Sometime I must admire the creativity of evangelicals, they can twist the context of anything just to spread their religion. I saw a youtube video from Louie Gigilo on Laminin today. He claims that it is God’s creation that the protein holds our body together is in the shape of a cross. In the video, he told a story of his encounter with a biologist who introduce laminin to him. The story itself is pretty good, the setup is quite interesting. Except the background music is really lame and his tone is kinda crappy.
At the end of the story, he showed the audience a drawing of the laminin molecule in the shape of a cross. Well, any molecule with 3 short arms and 1 long arm can be drawn in the shape of a cross. Next, he show the audience a photo of the molecule which does not look like a cross at all, it looks more like a Nazi symbol with the twists at the tip. Somehow the audiences all cheer up and praise Lord for this life miracle.
Louie Gigilo should research a bit more on laminin before he endorse it as an evidence for God. Some drawing of laminin are in the shape of a pitchfork, the symbol of the devil. Photos of lamini come in various shapes, some indeed remotely look like a cross. To me, some shapes look like X-wing fighters, while other look like Tie fighters. Maybe we all have the good side and dark side of the force inside our body constantly fighting each other. This coincidence could explain Jedism must be the true religion.
Spreading the gospel is fine, but please do it more intelligently. Don’t ashame your fellow Christians. Saying the shape of laminin has significant meaning is like imagining animals from the shape of clouds in the sky. Jesus don’t need this kind of cheesy evidences to persuade his believers. .
