  • 8:20...you might want to look into that city you pictured, i suspect it is Cyrene in Libya, a city established in the first or second century BC, like most Roman cities, they used the effluent from their relatively sophisticated toilet systems...as fertilizer, they tilled the fields with the waste that they had pre mixed with lime, and left the field fallow for a year, this was easy because they divided their land into 3 or 4 sections thus never exhausting the soil, they also used CROP ROTATION, from the era of THIS city, Roman agriculture grew much larger, ...this was practiced up until recently when artificial super phosphates came online....i dont think they ever had pig farms here though, sorry....this little commentary referencing Cato's Agri Cultura, you might find amusing..."The Romans did not have the fight against sour land which is the heritage of the modern farmer after years of continuous application to his land of phosphoric and sulphuric acid in the form of mineral fertilizers. What sour land the Romans had they corrected with humus making barnyard manure, or the rich compost which Cato and Columella recommend. They had, however, a test for sourness of land which is still practised even where the convenient litmus paper is available. Virgil (Georgic II, 241) gives the formula: "Fill a basket with soil, and strain fresh water through it. The taste of water strained through sour soil will twist awry the taster's face".....yikes.

  • I 've eaten a lot of pork but not necessarily because I prefer it to other types of meat. About five years ago I read an article online about the parasites that pigs carry. It also stated that they ate cancerous growths off each other. This article went into great detail about all the chemicals in processed pork products. I avoided pork for a few years until bacon and spare ribs looked absolutely delicious.

Oh and there are no such thing as “Northern Jews.” In the southern kingdom mostly consisted of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin. The northern kingdom consisted of the tribes of the other 10 brothers, regularly referred to as just Israel. Israel today still consists of the tribes Judah and Benjamin, and Jews come from the tribe of Judah. The northern kingdom is scattered among the face of the earth.

  • The Tora and the Bible are recordings of revelations thru a righteous person or Prophet to Gods children on the earth.... Amos 3:7... "Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets". ... if he reveals not to covet... you will figure out why.... you've gone thru many details of what swines eat, ... and they were not kept animals in ancient times as we do today... when people are in famine, they will eat anything too... even swine... or humans... some just want to obey God... and don't question why... because obedience is the first commandment of our God.... hope my views help a tiny bit...

  • ssWhat you exclude and barely touch upon are two things, and that they are that the pig has no ancient ancestor and is a biological mystery as to its origins and has no other ancestor other than its cousin the boar and the hog and all are hybrid animals with a relationship biologically to the rodent. The pig, as you mentioned, has no true excretory system and does not effectively get rid of its waste through its skin as other animals effectively do, therefore, it retains much of the salt and sodium waste that otherwise would be excreted through its skin and since it cannot get rid of its waste properly because it has no sweat glands. The metabolized waste of the Pig becomes a part of the animal since it does not properly excrete waste through perspiration and normal digestive process as other animals do. The normal digestive process facilitates the means by which toxins and poisons are removed from its body. The pig retains a high capacity of sodium, and since a pig does not sweat, the toxins remain within its body and in the meat and this is why the symbol of the Bank is the Pig, because allegedly what goes in "Should stay within the Piggybank or at least be released slowly" in order to have proper wealth retention of what goes in must stay within is key. Because it has a much different digestive system than from other animals, the pig has a tube on its hind legs that allows for slowly secretes or exports much of its waste through a pus-like formation and the meat of the pig has to be cooked at a much higher temperature to kill inherent parasitic worms. The swine and pigs have over a dozen parasites within them, such as tapeworms, flukes, worms, and trichinae, and because of that, you will never eat raw or have a rare or medium-rare piece of pig meat ever. There is no safe temperature at which pork can be cooked to ensure that all these parasites, their cysts, and eggs will be killed. Pig meat has twice as much fat as beef. What you fail to realize or mention is that Biblically and Qurancially is that God forbid this food as it will speed up the Death Process of its eater and anything antithetical to Life is probably what the Bible and the Quran were attempting to get across to its adherents and readers.

  • The first thing swine's flesh does when you consume it is, it begins to consume you, and attacks your immune system. It provokes & promotes the malignancy of cancer cells. Although raised on pork, I have come to realize that bacon and ham lovers like the smokey & sweet taste added in the smoking process. Anything that will eat it's own feces is not a desirable food no matter how you twist and strain the truth to legitimize your palate for it. Notwithstanding the foregoing facts, swine were kept as garbage disposals, and a source of incomparable brush bristles, and we're good for clearing land as they would root out & up stubborn brush and drive out snakes, ground hogs, moles, etc. They were a cheap but unhealthy source of protein to those that would risk their consumption.

  • Pork is forbidden in Islam because it is inherently impure and by this it is meant it eats filth. Historically pork has been thus widely accepted in a somewhat poorer societies because itgave lots of meat, caring for it was easy as it could literally live in filth and eat filth.

I'm sure this guy would be happy to advertise possum pie or rat stew if someone was willing to pay him for manipulating facts. Remember, the bigger the lie, the easier it is to believe. The more often it is told, the more people believe it is a fact. Pork is a waste of calories. Back in the 70's the USDA deemed it useless. Thanks to lobbyists that give people who lie with statistics the ability to twist facts into "Convenient" truths, the new "White meat" was marketed. Pork is crap. Don't eat it.

  • Mary Douglass did an exhaustive study of the purity laws in Deuteronomy, and concluded that what makes something "impure" is that it violates or doesn't fit neatly into categorical systems for organizing the world. Because the very existence of liminal creatures or substances calls into question the sense of order which categorical systems provided, they represent the threat of chaos and death. Mixed fabrics - cotton/wool blends etc. are "impure" because they are neither one substance nor another. Shrimp are impure because they live in water like fish, but have legs like land creatures. They don't neatly fit into either category. Deviations from heterosexual norms are prohibited because they call into question the binary categories of male and female. And pigs are unclean because they fit neither into the category of clove-hoof creatures which chew their cud, nor into the category of non-cloved, non-cud-chewing animals. The boxes and categories we use to understand and organize our world provide a sense of order in the face of chaos, and anything which doesn't fit threatens that sense of order, and invites the sense of chaos.

  • Hi Adam, I hope you could take the time to go through my comment, The real story of some people not consuming pork is long ago the people who lived in middle east hunted and ate pork / wild boar, Its Mohammed their preacher who created these rules claiming (its a dirty animal living in filth) that was his argument, In india people eat meat and pork its not ristricted to Christians even we Hindus eat pork, Our ancestors hunted and ate pork they even worshipped a Devine form called VARHA AVATAR of lord vishnu who carried the planet earth between his horns, After islam entered India in the 12th century they started prohibiting pork as its haram for them they even went about vandalizing Hindu temples with depiction of Varaha/ wild boar, Please dont generalise and Include us Indian Hindus with muslims of the world, There are certain sects / caste of people in the Hindu culture called Bhramins, lingayaths etc who dont eat any meat......But it doesn't mean Hindus dont eat meat, Only Beef is a taboo for all Hindus as its considered too holy and rightfully so it used to be the sole wealth of a farmer India being a nation relying on farming a male bull is used to till the land a female Cow gives milk and the various nutritious by products like curd butter ghee/clarified butter cream etc...., The dung is used as manure and dried and used with fire wood to cook so there you go Cattle are a sacred possession of Hindus.....

  • The main take away from this is , it is good that different segments and groups of humanity eat different species of animals, the reason being there will be lesser competition and conflicts for scarce resources, if everyone wants to eat the same food animal then there will be heightened competition for that animal. If different human groups eat food animal that the other doesnt eat , then there is no food fight and competition that may lead to wars and land conquering . As it is now, non pork eaters leave pork eaters alone to do their own eating, it may raise an eyebrow, and disapproving clucks, but food wars are averted.

  • In Ancient times there were lots of FAMINES which sometimes resulted in cannibalism because there was nothing left to eat. Pigs (supposedly) taste the closest to humans so they were then banned from being eaten. Theory here is that people wouldn't be so edible if you didn't know how tasty we are. Religions then put their 2 cents in to prevent human consumption of other humans and here we are today where there is only occasional cannibalism.

  • (1) I would love to do some more research and respond properly ;) (2) I know the main point in Islam is the purity of what we consume, our earnings, food, etc... The purity aspect of pigs in general, would love to more research. And the point we leave them as such, what about the other animals, in similar conditions, would they do the same? I am not sure, need to do more research. (3) I understand the need for others who grew up in a certain culture. For those who didn't, I mean we have all the animals in the world we can eat, why care if we can't eat one or two. It makes absolutely no difference, we are not dying of hunger etc... and that's why I guess no one need to research. (4) And for those faith based individuals. For them it is simply, if it is said, like for alcohol, interest and many other vices, stay away from pork, for whatever reason, understood or not, well he is the expert in the creation so I would just listen and do better things like world hunger, social reforms etc...

    Hassan MasoodHassan MasoodDag sedan
    • @shen 92 Hi Shen. I am not sure if that is a fair conclusion. The Qur'an itself is called a criterion (Ch 25). The purpose of it to set the criteria on theology, morality, social reforms, interactions, and so forth. It sets the vision, what we should do, and what we should stay away from for our own good. The above is then supported (additional information) by the actions and the sayings of the Prophet ﷺ. And then we have further the companions of the Prophet ﷺ who lived with him and the scholars and so forth after. To take one of your examples, the qur'an talks about fasting, and when we don't have to fast (e.g. traveling, sick or so on) but other logistics are then derived from the Prophet ﷺ sayings and actions. The logistics of when to start our fast, when to break it, and the actions during the fast and so on. And one might think, why not put everything in one place. It is one giant book which for someone like me would be daunting, why not put it into those think books. We wouldn't have to worry about the authenticity of a narration and so much more can be avoided. I didn't think of this until this video tbh, so thank you Adam. I now see it, it is because the application has to doable. The Prophet ﷺ didn't order others avoided what he preached, he did it himself, so the companions and the scholars afterwards since around year ~600. I mean now I can look back and say what excuse do I have if they also did it and in literally worse conditions than we have nowadays. The other reasoning is because of it allows flexibility in the applications. The scholars can differ on how the final variation looks like on some of trivial matters. And that fluidity makes it adaptable to lots of the moral culture we have around the world. It reminds of a case a friend of another faith had discussed with me (in the US). He spoke about his cousin whose husband had cheated on her. And because the family was on the conservative side, they are (now) forced to stay together and not seek divorce (because it says in the scripture). You now have a case where the wife has to live woman has to live, unwillingly, with a unfaithful man, and the man has to live with this woman who he was unfaithful with. This is what I think can happen, when the scriptures are dense, thick with so much information, and the application part is missing. The Qur'an is direct, as it reads in the second verse of the second chapter, and the "more information" comes from the application of the Prophet ﷺ. I mean many convert to Islam only by reading the qur'an so for them it is enough, and for many of us as well. And I think is a beauty by itself, those who even read a page, can learn something from it and improve their lives if they were seeking it. This of course needs a proper discourse. We can't generalize 1.8 billion people. Thanks for commenting though.

    • u know what i feel funny about this video as a Muslim is that Quran doesn't tell us much about why pork is banned ,in fact Quran doesn't tell us much about any thing at all. u know what's even more funny Quran doesn't even not tell us about how to worship, how many times a day to worship, where to worship and when to worship. I think Quran is only book which a billion of people read but have no idea what they are reading ,now ain't that a shame .
