Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.
It wasn't until after the great flood that the years of life diminished by hundreds of years. Noah was the last to live so long, and apparently, that gift died with him after his long 950 year life, which more than half of it was lived before the flood.
In the first few versus in chapter 9 of Genesis, God tells Noah how the game changes human life forever, He says that animals will fear and dread people, and we are given authority to eat meat.
Everything that lives and moves will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.
Chapter 9 also looks to me that any blood bearing beast is off limits. Take a look at the next verse.
But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.
Is the verse above meaning no eating the blood, or as I see it, does it mean not to eat animals with blood? You decide!
They say the bible has no discrepancies and it all flows to make valid truth, but it seems that over time, with both human rebels that ate meat anyways, God merely used a bargaining tool and decided to allow it, but at the cost of many years of life for us. Maybe it could have very well been the dagger to minimize humans life expectancies as a reminder of the sinful state of human beings.
If you believe in theories of ancient gods being aliens, you have to wonder whether the written right to eat meat after the flood of Noah was how our ancient astronaut gods put population control in effect. Maybe even intentionally changed our genetic structure that before sinfulness and meat was more like them with very long lives. Has meat consumption stifled our true connection to our creator(s)?
Meat has proven to be bad for our health, and is supposedly the only source for B-12 on earth. Vitamin B-12 is the only nutritional benefit that is not found in plants, but I whole hearted disagree. I did however read an article that claimed B-12 was actually available in organically grown vegetation. Read this article and tell me what you think. I think if we grow veggies, they will contain B-12 if we do it organically. Man made chemicals and meat consumption is killing us compared to how we were meant to be.
The bottom line is that when we started eating meat, our life expectancy shortened immediately, and even more, we seem to have lost our internal connection to god, or the universe depending on how you view religion. I wonder what the consumption of meat does to our pineal gland which is our spiritual connection to all things.?
