You Are What You Eat - The Science Behind Elohim's Dietary Laws

Why does the bible forbid the eating of pork, shellfish, mice and ravens?

Because these animals were never meant for human consumption.

They were designed by Elohim to clean up the filth and rotting corpses of the world.

Vayikra 11 and Deuteronomy 14 are both scientifically accurate and sound medical advice.

Elohim designed everything in the universe, including our bodies.
Don't you think He would know what is good (and bad) for it?

Elohim never abolished His dietary laws, which were designed for the benefit of mankind. He designed our bodies, as well as the bodies of these animals that are deemed unclean.

Take note:

Keep in mind that the higher the percentage the less toxic to the human body.

The lower the percentage the slower the growth rate of the culture and therefore the higher the toxicity of the sample being tested.

Background information about pigs in pagan practice and beliefs

Lev_11:7. pigs. Assyrian wisdom literature calls the pig unholy, unfit for the temple and an abomination to the gods.

There is also one dream text in which eating pork is a bad omen. Yet it is clear that pork was a regular part of the diet in Mesopotamia.

Some Hittite rituals require the sacrifice of a pig. Milgrom observes, however, that in such rituals the pig is not put on the altar as food for the god but absorbs impurity and then is burned or buried as an offering to underworld deities.

Likewise in Mesopotamia it was offered as a sacrifice to demons. There is evidence in Egypt of pigs used for food, and Herodotus claims they were used for sacrifice there as well. Egyptian sources speak of herds of swine being kept on temple property, and they were often included in donations to the temples. The pig was especially sacred to the god Seth.

Most evidence for the sacrifice of pigs, however, comes from Greece and Rome, there also mostly to gods of the underworld. In urban settings pigs along with dogs often scavenged in the streets, making them additionally repulsive.

The attitude toward the pig in Israel is very clear in Isa_65:4; Isa_66:3, Isa_66:17, the former showing close connection to worship of the dead. It is very possible then that sacrificing a pig was synonymous with sacrificing to demons or the dead

Elohim draws a strict line of demarcation between light and darkness, night and day, black and white, right and wrong, clean and unclean.

Elohim makes the rules, and man must make his decisions according to God's rules.

The dietary laws of Vayikra 11 and Deuteronomy 14 are scientifically ACCURATE, LOGICAL, and medically SOUND. David Macht's phytotoxic index clearly shows that these abominations destroy living flesh. Why would anyone want to eat toxins?
