We have become a divided and divisive society. No matter what the topic, it seems that at least one side takes their viewpoint as a religious crusade or jihad. The other side, they seem to opine are all degenerate idiots who engage in pagan rituals at the dinner table.
Here’s an example, based on the question “Is Drinking Non-Homogenized Milk Healthier Than Drinking Homogenized Milk?” from Brittanica Procon.org.
Pro – Robert Cohen, Executive Director of the Dairy Education Board, wrote in his article “Homogenized Milk: Rocket Fuel for Cancer,” accessed Nov. 28, 2007 on the Health 101 website: “Homogenization is the worst thing that dairymen did to milk. Simple proteins rarely survive digestion in a balanced world. . . .”
Con – Laura Paajanen, Division of Nutrition at the University of Helsinki, and Tuula Tuure, Researcher at Vailo Ltd., et al., wrote in their 2003 article, “No Difference in Symptoms During Challenges with Homogenized and Unhomogenized Cow’s Milk in Subjects with Subjective Hypersensitivity to Homogenized Milk,” published in the Journal of Dairy Research.
The term “Rocket Fuel for Cancer” is, of course, a well-known scientific term. It is believed to have been first used in 1676 by Antoni van Leeuwenhoek, the scientist who discovered bacteria. Van Leeuwenhoek spent the rest of his life desperately trying to find what “rocket fuel” was. His search was unsuccessful and he died in debtors’ prison, having spent every penny (or was it pfennig?) on the search
I say, if you want to fight, find something that strikes at the heart. For example, did you know every day of the week is named after a pagan god?
Sunday – Named after Sol, the Roman and Norse god of the sun
Monday – Named in honor of Mani, Norse goddess of the moon
Tuesday – Tiw, the Incan god of single combat
Wednesday – Wodin, also known as Odin, Norse god and father of Thor.
Thursday – Like father like son, Thor, the God of thunder, lighting, and strength
Friday – Frige’s day—Frige was the Norse goddess of love and SEX!!! Did you hear me, SEX! She was known in Rome as Venus.
Saturday – Saturnus, Roman god of plenty, wealth, and agriculture
And just to add fuel to the fire, guess which kind of milk they all preferred????????
