lol! unbelievable!

Still grasping at straws.

Comparing the two does give a good perspective as to how eating pork affects the behavior of the population.

that's a ridiculous notion! no it does not give a good perspective.

You don't know what they ate, that is like me saying that you are eating fish but you say you aren't, but I keep saying you are eating fish, and I cannot see you, how is that a good perspective ??

ridiculous notions!

 

I'm outta here till some sense comes back!

Why is it wrong to assume that the Europeans ate pork and Muslims didn't in the the middle ages?

Assuming that some Europeans didn't eat pork, such Europeans should also have been affected by the behavior of those who did eat pork as they lived with them and adopted the way of thinking of the people who lived with them.

You seem to be saying that one of the reasons Muslims are not allowed to eat pork is that pigs eat excrement.  But chickens also eat excrement.  So, then, you would also agree that Muslims are not allowed to eat chicken, correct?

What is the punishment, according to Islamic law, for eating chicken???

According to Islamic law, is there a connection between pigs eating excrement and Muslims not being allowed to eat pork?  And, if there is no connection, then why do muslims in this thread repeatedly bring up that pigs eat excrement as justification for the ban on pork???

Someone explain this contradiction to me, please.
