Blog: God wants you to be a vegan
Dean Best | 2 May 2007
God wants you to be a vegan. So claims a book published in the US that says meat is the real forbidden fruit.
Author Jeff Popick cites page one of the Bible in which, he claims, the Lord instructs man to eat “every herb yielding seed…and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree-yielding seed.”
Hence, Popick argues, how can an apple or a fig have led to “man’s downfall”? He passes over the passage in the Bible on the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden.
In his book, The Real Forbidden Fruit: How Meat Destroys Paradise And How Veganism Can Get It Back, Popick contends that once humans began to eat meat, paradise on Earth was lost. However, we can regain that paradise by becoming vegan again, as we were meant to be.
Meant to be? Without wishing to spark an evolution versus creationism debate on these pages, if we were meant to be vegans, why do humans come with the, well, equipment to eat meat?
From a man described as a “former Hollywood stuntman”, this tome seems nothing more than a crazy stunt.
