do you deny that pig raising was very widespread in lots of cultures? SE asia, polynesia, new guinea, europe, and the post conquest Americas?
Amongst poor people sure in numerous countries without lands. Amongst the Americas, it came there with the spaniards as an easily portable food that basically ate garbage. But to go off on this tangent from the original thread would require us to either meet in Annapolis or Bay Ridge.

Im not sure how the economic position of either Israelites or other peoples in ancient Canaan differed from all those examples I cited in a relevant way.

And its not entirely off topic - the point of this thread is that the pig ban isnt "functional" now we have veered off from Islam to Judaism - and I am not asserting against Harris that the pig ban is necessarily actually divine commandment - I can live with the statement that it is a cultural phenomenon that helped in some way to make life meaningful. I simply question the bio-economic basis for it.

I wonder if some of those worms would have helped tenderize some of the pork we had last night?
A little pre-mastication,perhaps?

Ah, I wondered why along with cutting greenhouse gas emissions, many governments are also cutting down on the number of feral pigs due to the widespread and devastating damage they are causing the earth!

Makes you wonder why God created them in the first place and why Noah saved two of them on the ark...bit like mosquitoes really....

those worms did not came from the pork, they are clearly maggots,
If you put coke on any meat the end result would be the same.

My decision to not eat pork is by my own choice. I choose to obey Allaah(swt) because of love for him.
