John, you must be reading different accounts of what I have read. Bonobos do eat small amounts of raw animals and leaves. Does that mean we should eat leaves and small amounts of animals, or are you just cherry picking the bits that suit your narrative?

Bonobos sleep in trees. Does that mean we should be sleeping in trees?

Bonobos have never eaten a banana in their life because banana trees aren't natural in forests, yet most raw frugivores rely heavily on bananas for their calories. Should high raw food fruit eaters be eating bananas when the Bonobos have never had a banana in their life?

I have never been to the Congo, but when you watch the documentaries of the people who have, they say the fruit there is very fibrous. Our commercially grown food has had all the fibre and stringiness bread out of it - in Australia anyway, as well as seedless grapes and watermelon. The commercial fruit is basically sugar and water, completely unlike anything the Bonobos have ever eaten.

The Bonobois live near the pygmies and are about the same size. Are you saying that the pygmies and Bonobos have the same ancestors and we all descended from the pygmies?

What connection does someone living in a cool temperate climate have to a Bonobo living in the tropics and sleeping in a tree who has never eaten a banana, to someone trying to survive in a big city?

Why do you dismiss the gorillas? Is it because they eat mostly green vegetation and it doesn't suit the narrative you are presenting?

Did the Bonobos human relative one day millions of years ago decide to leave his tropical paradise and go for a long walk to a colder climate? And if he did, then maybe he evolved to having a different diet that suited his climate and his body?

According to evolution, all land life originally came from the sea. Does that mean we are really meant to be eating sea plants? How far do we need to go back? I don't know who originally brought up this nonsensical straw man argument about the Bonobos.

Who's to say that an 80 - 90% raw diet plus the other 10 -20% of either cooked or animal food wouldn't be better for the Bonobo? Bonobos, and animals in general can't do experiments and write down their observations. Just because they eat the way they do doesn't necessarily mean it's their optimum diet, unless you believe God created everything perfectly
