Does anyone know what conservative Christians have to say about paleo?

I am wondering if conservative Christians and others who do not believe in the Theory of Evolution think about paleo. It would seem to me that they would have to reject the idea. I would think that many of them would be more interested in a Bible based diet, if they were going in that direction at all. But like Ayurveda, the oldest parts of the Bible are way post agricultural.

I guess this is one of the downsides of being a Biblical literalist and closing one's mind to everything else.

Dave, "healthy" in this forum and among ALL paleo people means eating according to the principles learned from the theory of evolution. That's what so hard about that. Us paleo folks challenge the current dominant paradigm of what is healthy.

Usually they just ignore everything about evolution and just eat healthy. What's so hard about that?

I can sum it up with this - the Bible describes Creation in about 1 paragraph. The entire rest of the book has nil to do with Creation. Anyone who believes Creation can be explained in the span of 3 sentences is misinformed. God gave us a brain to use. We should use it.

If you actually want responses from conservative christians, you may want to skip insulting them. I think there are some on this board. I'm kind of curious how they do work this issue out.

I'm not a theist, so won't speak for them. Some people interpret the Adam and Eve story as a being about humans leaving the "original affluent society" hunter/gatherer lifestyle for the laborious, stratified life of agriculturally based societies.
