Bi-monthly blog posts on a variety of health topics from a biblical & wholistic perspective.

To be completely fair, there are many merits to The Paleo Diet, but there are also some flaws.  Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, personal philosophies inform conclusions about what the best diet is for mankind, and from my perspective, it takes just as much faith to accept many evolutionary concepts as it does to accept the Bible as true.

The Paleo Problem: Part 5

The Paleo Problem5.2.jpg
So, what difference does all of this make to The Paleo Diet? The Paleo Diet is based on the evolutionary concepts that man was not created but has existed for millions of years, living as hunter-gatherers, consuming meats, vegetables, and fruits. According to this philosophy, grains (and dairy) were not consumed by humans until recent history around 10,000-12,000 years ago, when man began to settle down in one place, cultivate the fields and domesticate animals. Ironically, “young earth” creationists believe that the earth was formed around 10,000 years ago or less-- this view can be validated...

The Paleo Problem: Part 4

The Paleo Problem 4d
Paleo Minuses Continued The Paleo Diet is based on evolutionary principles which deny a biblical creation and the consumption of certain food groups by mankind prior to 10,000 years ago. Interestingly, the biblical creation coincides with the archaeological evidence refrenced by The Paleo Diet for when these supposedly excluded food groups began to be consumed by humans. While The Paleo Diet has its merits, which I cover in the first installment of The Paleo Problem, I have several contentions with this philosophy. My first TWO disputes are: Ancient varieties of grains were consumed by the fir...

The Paleo Problem: Part 3

The Paleo Problem 4b
Part 3:  Paleo Minuses Continued In Part 2 of this blog series, I talked about the distinctions between a biblical diet vs. The Paleo Diet related to grains, and I concluded that grains were indeed included in the diet of early people, although to a much lesser extent and were sprouted or fermented before consumption.  Today we will be examining another category of food that is not included in The Paleo Diet on the premise that it was not consumed by pre-historic people either. The Paleo Diet excludes dairy because our Stone Age hunter-gatherer ancestors could not milk wild, undomest...

The Paleo Problem: Part 2

The Paleo Problem3
Part 2:  Paleo Minuses All of the positive points about The Paleo Diet I mentioned in Part 1 of this blog series agree with biblical truth, but there are some distinctions that I would like to make and hope will provide a few tools with which to evaluate not only The Paleo Diet, but any other “diet” out there that comes your way: Low carbohydrate & high fiber from a paleo perspective does NOT include grains or legumes of any kind. While it is true that wheat and gluten are problematic for many people, and more widespread than we realize aside from obvious allergy or intolerance, grain...

Problems with The Paelo Diet
Part 1 I am a creationist… but I enjoy engaging in friendly, respectful discussion with others who hold opposing views, including evolution. In fact, I have found that I agree with evolutionists on many points, one of which is that the modern American diet is far inferior to the diets of our ancestors! I agree that our health has degenerated since the introduction of genetically modified and processed foods, as is evidenced by the negative changes in the dental health of even modern traditional people groups who introduce processed foods into their diets. I affirm that modern forms of dairy an...
