Bananas are the best fruit and they didn't have bananas.

Why would the priests be slaving over the construction of the pyramids? That's what they had slaves for.


Apologies to Darryl on reading back through the thread, I see you've covered priestin' and a slavin'.

There is a great body of evidence showing an association between high SAFA intakes and CVD and until there is unequivocal evidence proving it to be wrong I feel that the smart thing to do is go with the consensus view and keep your SAFA intake as low as possible while consuming a nutritionally adequate diet.

Remember, how it was thought that muscular tone was something of the poor and masses?
The upper classes were originally the warrior class of society. They held that position by virtue of their ability to defend the weaker elements of society. The advent of professional armies were in part to blame for the change in this status. And inbreeding.

But we're talking centuries not eons.

After the ritual offering, they would take home the food for themselves and their families
Hmmm, what a surprise - the gods don't take the food so let's not see it go to waste.

Religion = scamming the masses since the dawn of time.

Recent evidence says that the pyramids weren't built by slaves, but by free workers.

It would still seem highly unlikely that the High Priests of Osiris were getting their hands roughed up on the construction site.

Supporting the lack of need for hordes of stone pushing slaves, geopolymer concrete! The same insanely strong stuff that may thwart our bunker busters from crushing Iran.
