Thats right you can have faith in something intangible, from God to the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and still have a valid opinion in other areas.
|I have seen Jimmy Moore attacked many times for following a paleo low carb eating plan even though he is a creationist.|
Do you know who else did not believe in evolution, yet practiced a paleo diet? How bout the guys in the picture?
It is an inconvenient truth perhaps that spiritual belief may well be as paleo as coconut oil, in fact I would say far more so. As unlike coconut oil, spirituality was universally available and universally practiced.
I have seen many spiritual people being told they cannot buy into the paleo diet because of their beliefs and are therefor unqualified to share their opinions on it. This is ridiculous. This is fallacy based off the idea that a person can only think along one simple line. We see things in the movies all the time that we learn from knowing they are not real, so too with books.
Dismissing a persons opinion on something like nutrition because they have a differing belief system than your own displays your own limitations not theirs. It is, in short, a cop out. You do not agree with their conclusions so you instead attack the person, diminishing their contribution based on irrelevant things.
It is actually a mark of intelligence to be able to entertain another point of view, explore and entertain it, learn from it, even though you do not fully or even at all believe it. But lets ask someone smarter than I.
"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. - Aristotle
