Asalamu Alaikum, I have always been told that pigs, carnivores, and insects are things that we, as Muslims, are forbidden to eat yet when my biology professor told me that pork was only banned during the rise of Christianity and Islam since it wasn't simply cooked well enough. Today you can eat pork just fine as do millions of people. When I told my mother about this she believed me but she told me that the other reason as to why we don't eat pork, carnivores or insects is since we would get the characteristics of those creatures when we eat them. Such as a pig, who doesn't mind if its companion is sleeping with another pig, eating carnivores would make us more aggressive, and that we should eat camel meat since its very protective of its mates. I'm still not sure if this is really true or not since many people eat insects in the far east and they seem to be doing practically well for themselves. They don't see it as gross because they got used to it over time and integrated it into their culture. When I told her that she tried to change the subject. I hope some one can give me an answer to this since it seems to cause no trouble to the human body or psyche if we eat any type of animal or insect.
