    Kosher laws were evidence based. Eat these things in the days without refrigeration and die.

    Pigs were another story. Since pigs can eat every thing humans can, social requirements came into play. In a famine, who gets fed – the rich man’s pig or the poor man’s son?

    No pigs, no hard choices.

    Grilled Hood Canal Oysters:

    1. Start a fire with alder wood (important).

    2. Place fresh oyster on grill. I use “The Perfect Campfire Grill”:

    http://www.campfiregrill.com/

    3. When oyster opens, take the oyster from the grill (wearing leather gloves), use an oyster knife to completely open the oyster, severing the muscle attachment to the shell.

    4. Toss the unused oyster shell half back on the beach.

    5. Place the oyster in the remaining half shell back on the grill. Fill with white wine, sprinkle on parmesan cheeze, chives and bacon (bits).

    6. Cook until firm. Eat directly from the shell.

    Unbelievably good!

    For a second there, I thought that yummy recipe would send Sarah Palin straight to hell. But then I remembered clams are far too exotic for the backwoods yahoo’s pallette.

    It’s simple. He’s a selfish god and wants all the bacon for himself. If he werer active in the world today, the verse would be, “thou shalt have no double-bacon cheeseburger before me.”

    In other words, you can have the leftovers.

    Slug slime might be repulsive, but it is not an abomination.

    Neither is a diaper fetish, like the one Senator David Vitter liked to indulge in. See, wearing women’s clothes is an abomination (Deut. 22:5), but not wearing a baby’s clothes. Vitter is safe.

  6. 10

    Smartypants spews:

    What about baby girl’s clothing? How do we know Vitter wasn’t wearing a girl’s diaper?

    A serious note injected into all that BS above: eating incompletely-cooked pig gave people trichinosis, which can kill. The bible writers must have noticed that.

    Goldy,

    Let Puddy know and Puddy will show up at an upcoming Drunkard Liberals and buy you that ham and cheese sandwich with a side order of clams casino then watch you eat it.

    Deal?

    #3 does sound good – especially with local oysters. Not much of a raw oyster guy, but don’t overcook ‘em either, because overcooked oysters are yecch!

  10. 15

    spews:

    Puddy,

    Clams casino yes, ham & cheese no. Why would I waste the fat, salt and calories on that? Unless you’re talking about some good imported Prosciutto and Provolone on some crusty bread. That would make a worthwhile sandwich.

    huh? spews:

    you guys are idiots.

    there’s nothing wrong with eating shrimp in days without refrigeration. or, clams.

    did the northwest native americans die out due to diseases of eataing claims?

    no.

    no you guys get clams and crabs and cook ‘em up so that they never see the inside of a fridge? Yep. re you dead? Nope.

    As for pigs, if they’re so disease ridden, um, how come early mankind you know, um, HAD PIGS?
    they were domesticated. They were eaten. Yes, you could get trichinosis if not fully cooked but my god, back then you could geta milion diseases inclding all kinds of food borne disease.

    Wo to say this is evidence based is…..a myth. totally irrational.

    Right?

    Zotz spews:

    @9 and 14: “Firm” is a matter of some nuance. I like my shellfish “cooked” (no milkiness, etc.). The cheese should be slightly toasted (light brown) and most of the wine evaporated without overcooking. Fresh alder coals about 10 inches away are best.

    BTW, vermouth is perfect for this and vodka martinis (made with Glacier potato vodka from Teton, Idaho and garnished with pickled green beans) are a perfect complement.

    We have mostly Pacific oysters (not native). We relish Olympias when we can get them — they are truly tasty.

    Is eating pussy an abomination? I don’t think so. If you want to be on the safe side with the master of the universe, you should eat more pussy and less pork.

    You know, Kristallnacht probably wasn’t such a big deal. A few bricks through windows thrown by some patriotic Germans worried about the Socialist influence of the Jews in their communities. Heck, you can’t believe the German MSM anyway–probably none of it really happened, and if it did is was probably because those Jews were fanning the flames of incitement with all of their complaints about armbands and confiscations.

    Actually the shellfish prohibitions were very likely to keep people from dying from “red tide” type infestations.

    Get a free copy of The Politically Incorrect Guide� to the Bible™ by Robert J. Hutchinson with a subscription to Human Events!

    Human Events is the news source that gives voice to the great conservative thinkers of our era — Acc Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Thomas Sowell, L. Brent Bozell, Terence Jeffrey, Jed Babbin, David Limbaugh, Oliver North, Pat Buchanan.

    Fed up with smug atheists claiming that the Bible is full of intolerance, hatred, and outlandish fables?
    Here’s the antidote.

    The Bible was once regarded as the “Good Book.” But today it’s under relentless attack from liberals eager to justify their own political agendas.
    The Politically Incorrect Guide� to the Bible
    ….The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the Bible, Robert J. Hutchinson sets the record straight.

    The straight truth about Holy Writ:

    In The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the Bible, you’ll discover:

    * How modern archaelogy supports the historical reliability of both Old and New Testaments

    Including the creation of folks for Adan and Eve’s only surving son to to fuck!

    * How the so-called “inconsistencies” in the four canonical Gospels testify to their authenticity

    As opposed to the recounts that did not get incorporated?

    * How the ethical codes of the Old Testament were unique for their time — and why that matters

    I.e. if you leave out Buddha, the Greek philosophers, Confucius …

    * How there were few voices in the ancient world that discerned any distinction between what was legal and what was moral or right — aside from the biblical prophets

    I.e. if you leave out Buddha, the Greek philosophers, Confucius …

    * How Biblical religion is not the enemy of science — but actually made modern science possible

    Of course! God created rewality for scientists to find, believers refused to accept the plain truths.

    * Why, despite what liberal theologians and popular novelists will tell you, Christians always regarded Jesus as divine

    Which is why the apostles were not executed by stoning as is required for blasphemy.

    * Why you have to have a real ax to grind to think that the Old Testament takes a benign view of slavery

    Grinding axes is an honest trade. Just ask Hagar and Joseph.

    * How critics of the Bible often mistake descriptions of actual human conduct for God’s will

    Ahso! Apparently God is both cruel and impotent? BTW .. who destroyed the first temple? Who chose crucifixion?

    * How by far the greatest slaughters in human history have been inflicted by “rationalists” and “atheists” — often in the name of expunging Judaism or Christianity


    WHAT .. who has tried to expunge Christianity?

    As for atheists making war … what war was that? The war of the states? The Indian wars? WWI. WWII?,

    * Refuted: the effort by liberal scholars to debunk those passages in the Bible that have traditionally been seen as unambiguous condemnation of homosexuality

    What wonderful grammar! A double negative! I prefer, “the effort by liberal scholars to find those passages in the Bible that explicitly condemn of homosexuality”. Of course it is wrong too, but my version IS grammatical.

    * How the Bible laid the ground work for modern democracy

    As in Mussolini, Martin Luther, Oliver Cromwell, Karl Marx, Franco, the papacy, the Holy RFoman Empite, the crusades,

    Persoanlly, I kinds like the idea that democracy came from the Iroquois, the Constitution of Medina, and the Greeks.

    .. with interesting sidelights on how the Founding Fathers and great thinkers throughout history extolled the manifold virtues of deep familiarity with the contents of the Bible,

    Torquemada, Richard Nixon. Benedict Arnold, Henry VIIIth, Pious IX, Reverand Moon, Brigham Young,

    Or should we pay more attention to … Franklin, Jefferson, Voltaire, Einstein, Watson & Crick, Bohr, ???

    Oh yeh, the Christian Conservatives revere religious leaders .. like they revere ML King, Cesar Chavez, Father Drinnan,Darwin, Barack Obama, Jiummy Carter, ??

    “the peerless Ann Coulter” writes … says Ann: “Not only do I write a weekly column for Human Events, I devour it from cover to cover. Why? Because it’s the one newspaper I can count on to bring me the absolute, unvarnished, hard-hitting truth. And so should you.”
    Here’s your chance to be included among the more than 150,000 intensely loyal conservatives who wouldn’t dream of going a week without reading the unrivaled revelations.

    Can I get in on this deal. But, to tell the truth, I am not big on ham. To dry and salty. Some chinese pork maybe or a bacon burger?

    Benjamin Franklin said that beer proved that God loves us. I say bacon proves that whatever-supreme-being-there-is-if-there-is-one loves us!! Same goes for good ham, too!
