RE: Atheists, since you are not afraid of god, what is your view point on cannibalism?
Although I doubt by this point the thread is still on topic but here is my two cents. According to Catholic teaching there is nothing inherently wrong with the eating of human corpses. This is because after the body is dead it is no longer theologically human. Since human is defined as a body-soul composite, if there is no soul then it is not human. However, it is considered contrary to Human dignity to consume the dead and therefore should be only done in extreme circumstances.

I'm homophobic in the same way that I'm arachnophobic. I'm not scared of gay people but I'm going to scream if I find one in my bath.

I'm. Also homophobic in the same way I'm arachnophobic. I'm scared of spiders but I'd still fuck'em.

RE: Atheists, since you are not afraid of god, what is your view point on cannibalism?
I'm weighing in a bit late here.

Morality is at least partially explained by our cultural upbringing, but absolute truth, and therefore absolute morality does not exist. That being said, I think most people would find the act of eating a human to be immoral for the same reasons that I have stated; culture based moral ideas. However, in dire straights it is usually considered morally acceptable (or at least forgivable) to consume human flesh. In the Donner Party scenario, I think I could eat a human so long as it wasn't my closest family's bodies. The only thing God really has to do with it is religion's influence on our culture - what some guy says God says is right or wrong.

Remember, state your answer in a LOGICAL manner. Saying that it's immoral because it's disgusting or gross is simply an expression of opinion, even if most people agree with that opinion, opinions should never be the law.

@Dom: Human meat is as disgusting as beef or chicken, yet we still eat those because the way its prepared in a way that we can eat. If you put a live chicken in the sandwich in that picture, it would be just as gross. You're missing the point of the question. I even said that you cook it. Besides, the picture is of a person eating a live baby, so he basically is murdering him. I'm talking about someone who is already dead.

@grizzlysnake: Nope it doesn't imply to nothing but the fact that atheists don't fear god. It's impossible to fear something that doesn't exist to you.

@Slowminded: Nope, it's the consequences. I have no problem trying human meat in the way I described it.

Christians symbolically drink blood and consume the body of Jesus Christ on Sundays, and you ask atheists about cannibalism?

At any rate, I much prefer Soylent Green.

Too bad that gene doesn't kick in for mad cow disease, eh?

In most cases it isn't symbolic because that would be sacrilegeTongue Never heard of the transubstantiation? Whenever a priest rings a bell bread and wine become flesh and blood without changing their appearance or properties.

RE: Atheists, since you are not afraid of god, what is your view point on cannibalism?
I can't believe it took nine pages for somebody to finally mention Soylent Green!


Personally, I'd try a slice of human. Assuming the person consented before their death and I wouldn't go to jail for it. We're all just meat anyway, who cares after you're dead?

Also, good one Chas for posting the Sweeny Todd song Big Grin
