So I was reading this article http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=strange-but-true-cats-cannot-taste-sweets and it says that cats cannot taste sweets. I immediately cried foul. My cats LOVE sweets. They have been known to break through wrapping to get to cookies, donuts and in one incident when Jean-Claude was a kitten raspberry kringle.
The scientists in question said that in high concentrations, there may be some taste. However, the scientists were utilizing what they knew from their world view and limits of knowledge. There are things in the world that we cannot begin to fathom. The way that God works and watches over us is one thing.
We often limit ourselves by our world view because we don’t know something is possible or we are afraid. Yes, cats like sweets but likely it will involve some innovative way of thinking about taste receptors to understand (and if anyone doubts cats mysteries, it is still not understood why and how cats purr!).
Let’s be like the cats today and enjoy our sweets without worrying about the possibility of why.
