Atheist tries Ezekiel Bread
Editorial by Jim Walker

While walking past the bread section in my local grocery store a few weeks ago, I did a double take at a bread loaf called Ezekiel 4:9. "What?" I exclaimed to myself. Has the world gone so nutty that merchandisers are now taking advantage of gullible religious people? (They also have a Genesis 1:29 bread!)

The Food For Life Corporation apparently thinks that Biblical bread will help sell its products to American Christians. Perhaps it will considering the vast majority of them in America. Food for Life claims that its products are "inspired" by the Holy Scriptures (a poorly disguised euphemism that means that their bread is also inspired by god). What religious person could pass that up? Of course their real inspiration is in making money.

You see, Ezekiel 4:9 refers to a passage in the Bible that describes how to prepare bread with wheat, barley, beans, lentils, millet and fitches (spelt). The problem here is that the biblical recipe was intended to help survive famine during an upcoming siege, not because it tastes good or that it's healthy for you. Barley and millet, throughout history, has been considered a poor man's food. Barley is a hardy grain that survives drought and frosts. It also grows in alkali soils. It is usually fed to livestock, but humans can eat it too if they can stomach the flavor. Millet is a bland tasting grass used mainly in disadvantaged counties to feed the poor (and the seeds are given to birds). It's also found in "natural" food stores because it's exotic (which means that its rarely eaten, especially by well-to-do people). Ezekiel 4:9 bread is also expensive. In fact it was the most expensive bread in the grocery store, a rip-off, if you ask me. Hint: you can make low glycemic barley bread on your own much cheaper (you can find free recipes online).

Just for fun I bought a loaf of Ezekiel 4:9 bread just to see what it tastes like. As I expected, it tastes horrible, just as one would expect from grains and grass that only a starving person would eat. Only if the religious-right's self-fulfilling prophecy of Armageddon comes near (not likely!) and we pagans end up starving before our final demise, maybe then I'll eat it again, but never again, if I have a choice.

Millet is one of the best sources of vitamin B17 otherwise known as Laetrile.

the author is not only an atheist, he is an idiot. Do you know why Hostess went under? Because wonderbread is not real food and people know that. Keep taking your chemotherapy and glucose/fructose corn syrup moran.

Eze 4:12 And thou shalt eat it [as] barley cakes, and thou shalt bake it with dung that cometh out of man, in their sight.


Eze 4:13 And the LORD said, Even thus shall the children of Israel eat their defiled bread among the Gentiles, whither I will drive them.


Thanks but no...

Atheist aren't funny, they are scary. It appears from their behaviour and disregard of societal norms that most are sociopaths. That is why they are dangerous.

Did you not read the verses from Ezekiel, or did you not understand them?

I do not think they mean what you think they mean.

Re: Atheist tries Ezekiel Bread
There is a lot of ancient wisdom in the Bible, even if one is not Christian or Jewish.

The thing about Ezekiel bread is that the combination of grains, plus the use of sprouted grains, creates a combination of amino acids that makes a complete protein.
Ingenious ancient people discovered a way to get what their bodies needed when animal protein was not available.

That is a wonderful and noteworthy discovery!

The fact that the complete-protein-bread recipe happened to be recorded in a document that has since become so controversial (the Bible is quite controversial) inclines some people to be prejudiced for it, and some against it.

The author of that article is plainly prejudiced against what is actually a wonderful food.

I bet he would be falling all over himself about how wonderful it was if the recipe had been invented by polytheistic ancient Egyptians, Mongolian shamanists, or some other non-Judeo-Christan people.

The author is a fool. Atheism espouses science, and scientific breakthrough. Some ancient Hebrew came up with a wonderful scientific discovery, and the author ridicules it.

The best way to disguise a poison is to call it a vitamin.
And you fell for it too.

I am not a believer... but....how pretentious this is.
"just as one would expect from grains and grass that only a starving person would eat."
Some of the worlds most treasured delicacies are from poor peoples food that only someone starving might eat.

This is the "junk food nation" and they are bitching about this bread? pfft.

The fact that starving man's rations are not only healthier but more expensive than regular fucking food is a sign of doom times in itself.

Christians are the most gullible people on earth because they've rejected reason. To accept the Bible as true you basically have to destroy your rational thought center.
