To Sum It Up – A Quick Overview
The world amazes me. It fabulously beautiful and at the same time hideously ugly. Humans are sometimes noble and sometimes not noble. Like the lemmings we are rushing towards a population bubble. Some resource is going to run out, or sea levels will rise and populations will starve and migrate en masse. We are going to face a crisis like none we have faced in the past. Since I fell to earth, its population has tripled, and before I die it may have quadrupled.
To put this all into perspective, we should go as far back into history and look at how at a rate that increases geometrically, we are ruining our planet.
Around 4300 BCE the Indo-European speaking Aryans invaded Europe. They overwhelmed the prior peaceful matristic civilization. The Aryans subjugated women and children. They introduced slavery. They brought their worshiped an all male god which gloried in war. They came west because they had exhausted grazing lands in Asia, and Europe was well watered. They introduced large-scale cattle, sheep, and horse herding, something Europe had not known before the Aryan invasion. They enslaved the people of Old Europe, usually after killing all the males. Various tribes of invaders warred continuously with each other, and they continue to do so today. And their diet was different. The people of Old Europe had eaten a mostly vegetable diet. They had animals, but they did not do large scale herding. The Aryan invaders herded on a large scale. They introduced a meat heavy diet, and we have never stopped eating that diet.
We are only gradually recovering from the damage the Aryans did. We have stopped treating children as objects: Parents formerly could abandon their children or rent them out for labor income or sell them to slave mongers. We have stopped treating women as inferior: Women formerly could not vote or own property or divorce an unkind husband. Slavery morally compromised civilization for some 6,000 years: Only in the last 150 years have we have stopped enslaving blacks and others. The current project is to give gays and lesbians the rights they deserve.
But we forget about the animals. No one would allow his dog or cat to be treated the way cows, pigs, and chickens are treated in factory farms. Because animals cannot speak a human language, are they then not entitled at least to some level of ethical treatment? There seems to be two completely different versions of reality.
I am a deeply religious person, although my religion focuses on right behavior instead of on right belief. My view is that god cares less what we believe than how we behave. Although I am religious, I am not a fundamentalist. I am a critical theologian. I am open to all ethical theories and at the same time equally skeptical of all. In my book I openly question my own theories.
In this book I focus on the history, ethics, philosophy, and theology of diet. Is there an ethical diet, one that is good for the environment, for the animals, and for out health? One which would even help us slow our runaway population explosion?
If god is paying attention to what we do down here, what does god – or the goddess – take offense at the way we mistreat the environment, the animals, and our own health – as a result of our bad diet?
Voltaire said, “Earth is an insane asylum to which the other planets deport their lunatics.” Sometimes I wonder – on a poetic level – if this is not Earth I live in but Purgatory.
In my book I cover the emphasis in Jewish tradition on not abusing animals. I will reveal conclusive evidence that Jesus along with those who preceded and followed him in his tradition ate a green diet.
Some are less interested in the effect our diet has on the environment and the animals and more interested in their own health. This is the first reason why most people give up eating a fatty diet. Their health begins to fail and they get a wake up call.
If you ate the vegan diet I eat, you would start feeling better right away. You would have more energy right away. Your blood pressure and cholesterol would start dropping right away. And you would probably live longer and have a higher quality of life in your old age
Please ask me if I really enjoy eating a green diet. Truthfully, I get great satisfaction from the vegan diet I eat. I do not miss meat, milk, or eggs at all. I eat a lot and I enjoy my food a lot.
In my book I teach you how to grow your own organic green stuff, even through the winter in most parts of the country.
I will teach you cooking techniques. Cooking this way is so simple that previously helpless husbands and boys will be cooking for themselves.
I will teach you how to make the transition from a fatty diet to a slim, low blood pressure diet. I will give you scores of recipes that are very easy to cook. If you by my book, I will include scores of additional recipes, some of the best my wife and I have created.
