Paleo Diet?

Paleo Diet? The more I read and hear even in secular sources, the repeated date of  ancient culture of man (like in relation to his diet for example), is about 5,000-6,000 year ago. That fits well with the fact of the Biblical young earth proclamation. It also shows that a good diet would follow the lines of Noah, not some mythical cave man....

"Ancient humans are popularly viewed as hunting game with a primitive club. But "a new study shows they cooked and ate veggies." An examination of fossilized Neandertal remains from Belgium and Iraq revealed that their teeth contained starch granules from grain....An earlier PNAS report described "Stone Age" grinding tools that still contained grain remnants. The researchers found hundreds of starch grains in various stages of processing, from a variety of plants....So, evidence shows that ancient humans performed surgery,9 made ornate jewelry and effective tools,10 had elaborate burial practices, did not come out of Africa,11 and now are known to have enjoyed a cultivated cuisine of available fruits and grains instead of just meat. Can students trust any part of human evolution as it has been taught to them?"


I suggest reading the entire article along with all the footnotes for all the sources cited.

While I agree with you that the Earth isn't as old as science tries to say, I acknowledge the fact that food today isn't the same as it once was. For example. GMO foods. Grains are the number two source for keeping the world unhealthy, with sugar being number one. Those two things must go. So even though the name of the Paleo diet may seem to suggest a false history. The diet itself is much better suited for our human body than any other diet.

I agree, with the exception that grain was always part of the diet, unlike of course what Paleo claims. I agree re: GMO. But we can say that pretty much all of our food supply is not nearly what it was even 40 years ago, nutritionally speaking. But yes, I think we agree.
