Truth? Whose truth? Not my truth. Not to many people regret betterly the eating of tasty salty yummy bacon!

I agree. If God hadn't wanted us to eat pork, He wouldn't have made it taste so good.

Poisonous mushrooms can also be rather tasty.

My favorite way to cook bacon is when it just starts to get crispy

Anyone on Long Island here? We don't get good smoked meat places like down in the south but Smokin Al's in Massapequa Park and Bayside serve great pulled pork dishes. The smoke the meat all day and everything I've had there is so tender. Pulled Pork sandwich...mmmm

Quran doesn't say that consumption of the pork is not good for Muslims only but it says its not feasible for the human beings to consume swine flesh.

Besides religious factors there are also scientific reasons behind the prohibition of Swine Flesh.

Back in the day this was written it was just damn good advice.
It no longer has validity.

"Feasible" - capable of being done or carried out

I beg to differ, but as often happens when comparing religious tomes to real life, real life has a way of actually producing verifiable results. In this case, we have a religious doctrine testifying to the dangers of eating pork, when in reality there are millions of human beings entirely unharmed by that practice.

Pork is delicious, whether you acknowledge that fact or not, and whether you "approve" of that practice or not. You will NEVER convince the pork eating world to give up bacon, ham, pork chops, or pork tenderloin sandwiches (which happen to be the state sandwich of Iowa and Indiana, I believe) because of a religious text.

If you don't like it, fine. Don't eat it.

And again, your "scientific reasons" fall flat--and false--in light of the fact that more people fall ill to Escheria Coli infections from hamburger (beef) consumption than they do from Trichinosis from pork.
