There is no way our ancestors could have survived with our brains energy requirements on a "natural" vegetarian diet.

Reminds me of that song from the 70's "Grazing in the grass give you gas".

I see that you failed grade 3 logic. Actually, I assume that grade 3 logic doesn't exist, but you get the point right?

If carnivores survive solely on meat, and omnivores survive on meat and vege, and herbivores mainly on vege then clearly omnivores can't be carnivores...

So you would prefer: 'canine teeth indicate that meet was an element in our diet'.

Is it a post hoc ergo procter hoc kind of issue you have?
