You mean other than the neurological diseases associated with cannibalism?

Come now, that's irrational. Cannibalism only poses a problem if the carcass is unprocessed. Soylent Green is a protein wafer produced by highly refined processing techniques. No chance of disease transmission. Let's not live in the unenlightened ages. Thanks to science, the problem is solved.

I must say, I am curious...what science? I don't have any 'moral objections' to cannibalism only practical medical and political ones...I would actually appreciate it if you could remove my medical concerns...I believe I've said before that I'm willing to try anything once. Wink

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

I dunno...perhaps that is because you are not the one being eaten?

Grace is also my name,
but when things go wrong
its Courteous whom I blame;
but its Grace who sees me through it.

Please explain how cannibalism is acceptable in your view.
