First, while it is true that there exists the needed amino acids in plant life - that doesn't change the fact that the easiest way in East-Central Africa at the time was to eat meat/animal proteins. And, if the amino acids were available in the plant life pre-humans were eating, why did brain development increase with animal proteins and not the plant proteins? If we hadn't turned into scavengers (perhaps from an extended drought and lack of food - may not have been an accident), we may never have evolved past that stage.

Perhaps we would have, but a case could be made on the And, perhaps we can get the exact same amino acids without meat - I'll look into it. I think the oils and lipids are important as well - and those cannot be found in plants. You have opened up some things for me to investigate on that front.

In terms of the video - the title was precisely my point. "New Age" religion has nothing to do with atheism. In face, most atheists I know, and myself, give less credibility to the New Agers than the Born Againers - at least they have some fables in their pocket.

A big logic problem however: "All one need state if they wished to debunk Atheism is that no one can prove God or Gods do not exist". You are right, it is impossible to prove a negative. If I asked for you to prove that the purple leprechan who lives in my ear didn't exist - you couldn't do it. The burden of proof is on the person making a positive claim, not a negative. You say a god exists, I say "why would you think that" - then we have a discussion. And, the very idea of "debunking" atheism is just stupid, sorry. Atheism is lack of a god belief. There is nothing to debunk. It is not a claim, not a movement, not a world-view - I just simply do not believe in your god, just like you don't believe (most likely) in Zeus or Thor.
