Anthropologist Finds Evidence of Hominin Meat Eating 1.5 Million Years Ago: Eating Meat May Have 'Made Us Human'
ScienceDaily (Oct. 3, 2012) — A skull fragment unearthed by anthropologists in Tanzania shows that our ancient ancestors were eating meat at least 1.5 million years ago, shedding new light into the evolution of human physiology and brain development.

"Meat eating has always been considered one of the things that made us human, with the protein contributing to the growth of our brains," said Charles Musiba, Ph.D., associate professor of anthropology at the University of Colorado Denver, who helped make the discovery. "Our work shows that 1.5 million years ago we were not opportunistic meat eaters, we were actively hunting and eating meat."

It is not an issue of recoil or control. It is a matter of unnecessary weight and size for an urban environment where ranges rarely exceed 30 yards. The Enforcer gives a rifle cartridge in the size and weight envelop of a MAC9 or Uzi if you wish but is eminently more controllable than either. The basic design has been battle tested from Pacific jungles to Korean winters and was the pride and joy of the Baltimore PD during the gang wars.

I haven't much good about the jewish copy of the AK-47s.

As to your favorite criminals, the objective of Zionism always required expulsion and murder to achieve which is all I observed. I would certainly call that criminal. But give them credit for accomplishing that intrinsically Jewish conspiracy proving once and for all there are jewish conspiracies and for very big stakes and murder is no hinderence to their acccomplishment.

Because you are posting in public you "should." That you do not care about using words correctly is a separate issue.

Yet you introduced them into this discussion out of no where. And you compounded it with the Galil and referred to it as other than a knock off of the real thing.

In the matter of Zionism and the complaints about Britain reneging on the Balfour Declaration the quotation marks are grossly misleading. They are proudly declared as accomplishments by the conspirators themselves. In fact adherence to Zionism as an ideology is a political litmus test in the emerging fascist Israel.

It was your flame war and I assume those who observed your opening are still curious as to what set you off. I guess it is a Shetel thing.

hmmm... Fryderyk Chopin, Ray Manzarek, Steve Wozniak, Marie Curie, Nicolos Copernicus... that is about all I can think of off the top of my head.

Of course you also have Leon Czolgosz (anarchist who assassinated president Mckinley), Ted Kaczynski and pope John Paul II

apparently wozniak is unsure of his ancestry.  he thinks he could be german just as easily as polish.  stereotypical polish names are not uncommon in germany.  charles bukowski, for example, came from a very german family.  ironically, polish-sounding names in germany are usually indicators of jewish ancestry.  until the rise of hitler, jews were treated better in germany than anywhere else in central or eastern europe (except maybe romania).  god knows the pollacks treated them like shit before, during, and after the war, so they went to germany.  even after the war, they wanted to be in germany rather than poland.

poland is a fucking fanatically catholic country, maybe only ireland is as bad.  living in slovakia, i've been to poland many times.  it's scary.  funnily enough, though, if you go there and express an interest in picking up girls, you'll be told, "our girls are good catholics, they're not like that."  bull-fucking-shit.  biggest whores you ever saw.  i know one guy, the only threesome he ever got was in poland, and he barely had to try.

Back to meat

More evidence comes in:

 

http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2012/nov/15/stone-spear-early-human-species

The ancestors of humans were hunting with stone-tipped spears 500,000 years ago, according to a new study – around 200,000 years earlier than previously thought. This means that the technology must have been developed by an earlier species of human, the last common ancestor of both modern humans and Neanderthals.

The invention of stone-tipped spears was a significant point in human evolution, allowing our ancestors to kill animals more efficiently and have more regular access to meat, which they would have needed to feed ever-growing brains. "It's a more effective strategy which would have allowed early humans to have more regular access to meat and high-quality foods, which is related to increases in brain size, which we do see in the archaeological record of this time," said Jayne Wilkins, an archaeologist at the University of Toronto who took part in the latest research.

At first I thought maybe French or Russian, but his second language turns out to have been French.

Further reading suggests that he also learned Spanish and Portuguese and was taught German, Greek and Latin.

His resentment towards Russia perhaps explains why I can find no reference to him speaking Russian. He seems to have despised Dostoyevsky, but admired Turgenev.

I've read about half a dozen of his books and am always awed by his skill and insight. I'm now tempted to track down one of his Australia related works.

 

Some quotes:

Faith is a myth and beliefs shift like mists on the shore; thoughts vanish; words, once pronounced, die; and the memory of yesterday is as shadowy as the hope of to-morrow....
In this world – as I have known it – we are made to suffer without the shadow of a reason, of a cause or of guilt....
There is no morality, no knowledge and no hope; there is only the consciousness of ourselves which drives us about a world that... is always but a vain and fleeting appearance....
A moment, a twinkling of an eye and nothing remains – but a clod of mud, of cold mud, of dead mud cast into black space, rolling around an extinguished sun. Nothing. Neither thought, nor sound, nor soul. Nothing.


In a letter of late December 1897 to Cunninghame Graham, Conrad metaphorically described the universe as a huge machine:


It evolved itself (I am severely scientific) out of a chaos of scraps of iron and behold! — it knits. I am horrified at the horrible work and stand appalled. I feel it ought to embroider — but it goes on knitting.

You come and say: "this is all right; it's only a question of the right kind of oil. Let us use this — for instance — celestial oil and the machine shall embroider a most beautiful design in purple and gold." Will it? Alas no. You cannot by any special lubrication make embroidery with a knitting machine. And the most withering thought is that the infamous thing has made itself; made itself without thought, without conscience, without foresight, without eyes, without heart. It is a tragic accident — and it has happened. You can't interfere with it. The last drop of bitterness is in the suspicion that you can't even smash it. In virtue of that truth one and immortal which lurks in the force that made it spring into existence it is what it is — and it is indestructible!


It knits us in and it knits us out. It has knitted time space, pain, death, corruption, despair and all the illusions — and nothing matters.
 

 

He read an essay, A Free Man's Worship, by the famous philosopher and humanist, Bertrand Russell, which said: 'We should worship only the God created by our own love of the good.' Conrad wrote to Russell saying, 'For the marvellous pages on the worship of a free man, the only return one can make is that of deep admiring affection.”

 

In Under Western Eyes, he writes: “A belief in a supernatural source of evil is not necessary; men alone are capable of every wickedness.”

In Heart of Darkness he says, “We live, as we dream – alone.”  And Under Western Eyes shows his humanist morality: “All a man can betray is his conscience.” 

Joseph Conrad admired other writers with a humanistic, rationalist outlook. To John Galsworthy, the novelist and playwright, he wrote, making clear his own rejection of dogma: “Scepticism is the tonic of mind, the tonic of life, the agent of truth. It is the way of art and salvation.”

 

Later in life he wrote to a friend: “It's strange how I always, from the age of 14, disliked the Christian religion, its doctrines, ceremonies and festivals ... Christianity has lent itself with amazing facility to cruel distortion ... and has brought an infinity of anguish to innumerable souls - on this earth.”

 

Postscript:

Conrad had a phobia of dentistry, neglecting his teeth till they had to be extracted. In one letter he remarked that every novel he had written had cost him a tooth.
