    Oh i'm sorry maike i thought you were talking about chattel slavery, not being shipwrecked, had i known that i would have agreed with you maike, in many cases canabalism was practiced in order to stay alive.

    I'm sorry that you feel that way about people...allow me to apologize first, that final statement wasn't meant for any purpose other than my own personal flaw of being a smarta$$, sometimes people take offense to something i don't mean to be offensive i apologize.
    I don't attribute good or evil to one group or another, however i don't find much good in Hitler or the Nazi regime, as a historian not as a jew.

    I, like Druidus, do not eat meat as I believe that killing others to satisfy our wants is not acceptable. Many in the Bible did eat meat. In the Old Testament, God sent quails for his people to eat to prevent starvation so my religion definatly doesnt restrict my diet. The fact that God might have given us permission to eat animals, I still dont think that it is right which is why he gives us the choice.

    I didn't hear of the flour and oil thing, but the seaweed you are referring to is called fishweed. It was one of the most common foods in biblical times; a staple in the diet of almost everyone.

    Welcome! Thumbs up, as well. It's always nice to meet another who feels the way I do. :D

    In a sense it does. We can eat whatever we want. The group that eats meat gains nothing over those that do and vice versa, in God's eyes. It's not like eating meat makes one holier than those who do not and vice versa. The true words of God is the real meat that everyone should gobble up. The subject of "eating meat" has nothing to do with beef and chicken or veggies and milk but rather a spiritual meaning that compares the words of truth like everlasting food for mankind. Give me the truth of God and I will eat it up and never hunger again.
