Re: Genesis 9:1-4 - A Commentary on God's Concession to Eat Flesh by Frank L. Hoffman
"Food" poisoning kills thousands of people a year.
"Food" poisoning does not come from fruits & vegetable (unless contaminated with animal parts & blood from the slaughter house).
If God says that it is now "ok" to eat animals, why wouldn't he have removed all the invisible poisons (e-coli, salmonella, etc) from those animals.
Also: we now know that eating meat causes humans to have cancer & heart disease & cholesterol problems. If it was sanctioned by God, why would eating meat be killing us?
I believe that the "fruit of the knowledge of good & evil" is meat. For: what could be more evil than taking the most precious gift God has given to us......Life?
What say you?
