I feel like posting something a bit quirky - I had a family get together - and SOMEHOW the topic of cannibalism came up.
Then it progressed into 'Is cannibalism morally acceptable' , etc.
Some of my family members were utterly shocked when I said I thought it was perfectly fine if the member a tribe for instance is already dead - and the eating of the body is done as either a ritual - or a way to get some good grub. I can see how eating a deceased tribe member could potentially increase the well being of the tribe. It provides food , first and foremost. It is also a way to honor the dead.
My brother went as far as to say he would actually partake if he went to visit one of these cultures out of sheer curiosity. My family was even more shocked, and ended the conversation. But he was dead serious. (Pun intended.)
So two questions.
1.) Is cannibalism acceptable?
2.) Would you partake if you ever happened to visit one of these cultures? (I'm not talking about a life or death situation ... like a ritual feast perhaps?)
My answer to 1.) is listed above.
My answer to 2.) Is ............. Yeah. I probably would. I'm curious.
"I am all out of human"
Look in the mirror ... you might find some. : P
I keep trying to tell the people around me I can not be from this planet!
They are all christians, I guess I can't claim that anymore I found others like me.. I am still saying we can't be from here!lol
2.) It depends on how he died; and how well i knew the person. ( i will not eat a prostitute because I'm scared of HIV. LOL )
You've got to be joking, sir.
Just one link among many I may supply you - Open your eyes to the reality of Allah - not just what is in your Holy Book.
thinking is hard on the brain that has been told what to think for so long..
I would defend him more, however i have lost my patience in defending the religious..
As to the first question, I consider cannibalizing a dead human to be as acceptible as consuming any form of animal life, in terms of absolute morality. In terms of what is culturally acceptible I would have to defer to the culture in question. The huge gulf that is thought to exist between human animal life and other animal life is an imaginary one. Biology does not support such an assertion. A dead animal is meat.
To the second question I can only reply: I like mine cooked medium well.
