Would you commit cannibalism if you had no other choice, and were otherwise going to starve to death?

Posted by: PetersSmith

I heard the liver and heart are the delicacies of the human body. You can cook it, you don't want to die from diseases now do you?

  • Yes, if it meant my life would be preserved

  • No, I could never do it

  • Only if the person was already dead.If i was in a group that crashed a plane into a mountain, i would make a deal with the others that the first person who dies from natural conditions would be eaten and so would the second and third, etc, etc

  • I'd make wurst out of them... maybe a coat too.

  • I would commit cannibalism for my survival if needed.

  • Who said anything about survival?

  • If they are already dead. Pretty sure. Eating meal from people that were not murder (especially not by me) would not be an obstacle to survival.

  • only if the person was already dead

Reece: Who said they were already dead? It could be in a group or just between the two of you, but they are very much alive. For the group, I'm presuming you would all vote, but for the two guys it's survival of the fittest.

@PetersSmith you didn't say they were already alive...
PetersSmith says2014-08-13T23:30:54.2871873-05:00
Reece: Well, you could wait for them to be dead, but you may die before them. So, your comment is still kind of valid.

@PetersSmith No, I would want them to eat me if i died...

Reece: That's not the question.
reece says2014-08-13T23:33:29.9602045-05:00
@PetersSmith So what is?
PetersSmith says2014-08-13T23:35:32.6345178-05:00
Reece: "Would you commit cannibalism if you had no other choice, and were otherwise going to starve to death?" If you go off that they're dead then there are several issues. If it was from an accident or something like a plain crash, then their bodies will be inedible. However, if you're presuming they will die of natural causes then you could die first, which removes the point of the question. You can't eat someone if you're dead (unless you turn into a zombie).

@PetersSmith But i would still commit cannibalism if i stayed a live.It would be impossible if i died, wouldn't it.

The only thing you have in life is who you are as a person. If you ate another person, you would carry that guilt with you for the rest of your life. I hate to tell people .... We all die.... It how you meet that end that matters.

Depends , was I tasked with saving them , were hey dead , were they my family .

Formerland1: Stranded in a desert, a forest, a mountain, a jungle, or Detroit. And you have to eat someone. It could be a group, or it could not be a group. However, we are presuming that they are still alive, BUT you can wait for them to die of natural causes, but that also puts your life at risk. Or you could let the other group members kill him/her.

Shortest straw gets eaten. Way of the sea.
