note that there is nothing in the Bible forbidding cannibalism but there is forbidding eating pigs.

Is there something there that advocates cannabilism?


I much prefer the new testament to the old one, seems so much less violent.

Man can be master of his brain or slave to it, depends upon his perspicacity. Man will be master of his ass unless locked in an American jail.

In the Marquesas islands of Polynesia they referred to human flesh as long pig.
The Chinese refer to the west as long noses.


To attain a sense of moral and ethical balance it is important for one to include animals for they indeed like us perceive reality but with what intensity we do not know so it is important to give them the benefit of the doubt and draw them as close to us as possible.
