The Cult of the Seed

Jared Diamond, a well-known scholar, historian and author, calls the advent of agriculture ‘The Worst Mistake in Human History’, he’s termed it ‘The Cult of the Seed’

If you look at the paleo-anthropology evidence from the Dickson Mounds and all the other fossilized records of people around the time when agriculture began 10,000 years ago, the health of humans clearly rapidly deteriorated once we became agrarians.

There’s evidence of many nutrient deficiencies, many infectious diseases, hyperostosis of the scull which is probably due to deficiency of multiple minerals and vitamins and the skeletons got smaller, they were more fragile. There’s plenty of evidence to suggest that that agriculture was a really bad thing for us to do.
