*King James Version (KJV)
Do you have any idea the number of editions made to OUR HISTORY book? Man pah leeze!
Yep, you are correct, there are many editions of our history book, better known as the Hebrew Bible, but, the original African Heritage study bible cuts through all of that.
At one time before the flood, only plant based foods were allowed:
Genesis 1:29-30 King James Version (KJV)
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
Then later after the flood, meat without blood was allowed:
Genesis 9:1-4 King James Version (KJV)
9 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.
3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.
So, the sources cited above and below, in lieu of any deduction reasoning, makes it plain to me that as omnivores we were designed to eat meat (but not blood), and are equipped to chew and digest same, albeit at a consequence...
