    Unfortunately..... Guns  + testosterone does not = common sense....That's disregarding the prime motivators which are, wealth and power.

    People are basically, still almost as stupid as they ever were.

    Or perhaps that's how things were designed to be.

    And fear based on various factors, irrespective of those degree for their concerns.

    And barbaric.

    Of course not all animals are omni-vores,  humans are.

    ...."But this study is the first of its kind to look across all mammal groups, including omnivores, to reconstruct how evolutionary time changed mammal diets.

    To do that, the researchers compiled previously published diet data for more than 1,500 species representing more than one third of mammals alive today, including primates, ungulates, bats, rabbits and rodents.
    By mapping that data onto the mammal family tree, the researchers were able to trace backward in time and infer what the ancestors of each species most likely ate.
    ....They found that while some groups of mammals maintained steady diets, others changed their feeding strategies over time.
    Today's omnivores in particular--a group that includes primates, bears, dogs and foxes--came from ancestors that primarily ate plants, or animals, but not both, said paper co-author Samantha Price of the University of California Davis.
    While omnivorous mammals weren't always that way, plant-eaters and meat-eaters have diversified within a more well-worn path.

    ....Radical shifts were unlikely for these animals. Mammals that eat meat for a living, for example, didn't give up their taste for flesh without transitioning through an omnivorous stage first.
    "Direct transitions from carnivory to herbivory were essentially nonexistent," said co-author Louise Roth of Duke University.
    "It's an intuitive result because it takes very different kinds of equipment to have those kinds of diets."

    "Plant- and animal-based foods require different digestive chemistries and different processing mechanisms in the mouth and stomach," said co-author Samantha Hopkins of the University of Oregon.
    The kinds of teeth adapted for tearing and slicing meat are different than the large, flat-topped molars adapted for grinding nuts and roots.

    "It makes sense that you couldn't easily transition from one to the other in one step," Price said.
    The researchers also found that diet is linked to how fast mammals spawn new species.

    .....As new species arise and others go extinct, the plant-eaters proliferate faster than their meat-eating counterparts, with omnivores lagging behind both groups.
    "If there was an evolutionary race to evolve 100 species, it would take three times longer for omnivores compared to herbivores, and carnivores would be in the middle," Price said."....

    Interesting how things have turned out then.

    Did said researchers also consider the development of intellect and temperament in relation to dietary development?

    I didnt see any of that. It was Terrence Mckenna who believed some apes at magic shrooms that led to synaptic connections and more intellectual access.

    It was about ten years ago sicentist discovered that some magic fungi result in new brain cells be created.   And I just read/heard that contrary to so many years they thought brain cell development ended in childhood, thn 17, then 19 then 25 and now they believe it goes on all our lives.

    So some magic shrooms directly do this and there may be some diets that encourage brain cell development more than others. I dunno.

    ..."11 Odd Facts About 'Magic' Mushrooms

    ...."The compounds in psilocybin mushrooms may give users a "mind-melting" feeling, but in fact, the drug does just the opposite —  psilocybin actually boosts the brain's connectivity, according to an October 2014 study. Researchers at King's College London asked 15 volunteers undergo brain scanning by a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) machine. They did so once after ingesting a dose of magic mushrooms, and once after taking a placebo. The resulting brain connectivity maps showed that, while under the influence of the drug, the brain synchronizes activity among areas that would not normally be connected. This alteration in activity could explain the dreamy state that 'shroom users report experiencing after taking the drug, the researchers said.
