    Sure, if the person is already dead. Flesh is flesh. If they have a problem with it, we'll bicker in the afterlife.

    I voted "yes" -- and I'm a strict vegan.
    I would wait for my dinner to keel over on his own, though.;)

    I really don't see the difference between eating humans, pigs, cows or chickens. It's just regular meat.

    Why the squeamishness? It's not like eating grasshoppers, scorpions or bats. If no-one told you what it was you wouldn't give it a second thought.

    Depends on how social the animals are. Are their any animals as social as us who are cannibals?

    Well, if you ever read Cloud Atlas, man has performed all sorts of cannibalism come to think of it. Often not literally eating, but dominating each other, taking what others have and many other things. Thanks for the link.

    What questions? I did not ask any question in the post you replied to.
    I suggest you do not make so many dumb reading comprehension mistakes.

    So we eat. The flesh upon the shore and as the eaves of the hostel drip the typhoons of destinies change. One mans fortune is another mans dessert. Care to taste a plate on the delaware?
