I have a question.

How did man figuare out how to make bread?  As the title says it is a simple concept but nearly impossible for it to be an accident.  If you eat grains straight you end up with ground up grain not flour or dough.

I can buy the accidental popped popcorn, drop an ear ia fire.  Or cooked meat the same thing.  But bread takes planning and you can't drop water on to grain and get dough.

Any ideas.

I am a Mormon.  If I don't use Mormons believe, those my beliefs only.
I do not go to church haven't for thirty years.
There are other Mormons on this site. So if I have misspoken about the beliefs. I welcome their input.
I am not perfect and never will be. I do strive to be true to myself. I do my best to stay true to the Mormon faith. Thanks for caring and if you don't peace be with you.

Maybe someone, long ago, was grinding some grain and wondered what would happen if he/she mixed this and that together and tried to cook/bake it.

After all it seems that many of the things we have today were discovered either by accident or were the results of some casual experiments.
Maybe..

Just think if the earl of sandwich had had a fork, he wouldn't have needed to make the first sandwich.

It could have been seemingly accidental.
Say, a guy lost few teeth and had to crush his grains. Then surprise rain fell and his ground up grains got wet. He sat there in rain, all disappointed and his wife took pity on clumsy toothless idiot and decided to dry his grains by the fire. Collected the wet proto-flour by her hands and placed it on a rock near the fire pit. Then some emergency happened and they forgot about the wet flour that got slightly burnt by the time they remembered about it.
Being hungry, guy tried his apparently cursed grains and found out it tastes just fine and decided to deliberately grind, wet and burn them next time.
His bad luck continued and on some other occasion not only there was an emergency, but it lasted for so long his wet flour got all mouldy by the time they got back to the cave. The mould was actually the yeast and there you go. Bread.

But nothing happens by accident.
I don’t think higher power talks to people, we are mostly too stupid to understand each other, let alone anyone more complex, and history teaches us any attempt of higher power to directly communicate with humans ends up with disastrous misunderstandings and total misuse, so it’s the strains of accidents that shape our history and drag us, kicking and screaming, towards some development.

That's why the Universe decided to make Sandwich compulsive gambler who didn’t want to leave gambling table not even to eat so we can have sandwich invented.

I like that but don't agree with some of it.

Of course.
I don’t agree with myself on everything in my own post, but I’m pretty sure it was all started by toothless and clumsy people, with some providence working for them through series of bizarre coincidences that were not coincidental at all.

A possibility that comes to mind is that some one was chewing grain around a fire and spat some on to hot rocks...ergo...bread!

IMO this is one of those, "We'll never know exactly how, we just know it happened" kind of things.

I ask a similar question about whatever possessed the first lobster-eater to give that baby a whirl. . .

All that would take would be extreme hunger or curiosity.

I think somebody spilled his porridge on a hot rock and invented the proto-pancake. Then he tried his mash potatoes and invented tater cakes. :yes:
