First off, thanks to all for taking this thread in the spirit that it's meant. It was meant to be tongue in cheek and though some of you thought it was more thumb in throat, I appreciate that this didn't devolve into a mess or a series of posts with rabbits wearing pancakes or worse commentary... commentary about my intelligence.Originally Posted by Corcaigh
I must say as a scholarly logician whose thesis was in the Fault system, I do find the preceding attack on my logic to be quite specious.
As others pointed out, for most of man's existance it was phat to be fat.
Also, there's not a lot of game and farmng is really hard in the frozen north, therefore you would need to be able to store fat.
Clothing is a point, but clothing shelters you only to a degree. Look at Russians, Eskimos, and Hawaiians, cold weather people tend to grow large in self-protection.
I must say that the logic of disproving evolution is not proof of Creation, but the thin blonde must mean something. If it is maladaptive for blondes to be thin and yet they thrive in that state that has got to be a message from God. Perhaps, simply that the universe doesn't make sence and we are not capable of understanding it.
I must study more thin blondes to know for sure.
