Random Thought with PK
Click to go to bottom
Let's say you were stranded, and to survive you had to resort to cannibalism. In terms of humanity. Have you already died from survivng? You committed an inhumane act to save your human self, or are you more human then when you started? After all, is it not human to commit a sin?
Personally, as a biomech demon who uses human lives as covers, I only have to ask myself "Is this act out of character for my stolen identity?" To which the answer is almost surely "Yeah no shit". So I'm less human-seeming, and possibly being shot at by a small army of angels if my luck is bad! Serious answer though now that I'm done speaking IC. I don't really think humanity is something one can sum up so easily, humans lie steal cheat and murder each other for far lesser things than actually staying alive at times though. So in my view, it's kind of fucked up but hardly makes you less than human, humans do far too much shit to each other for me to say that'd make you less of one. Which, I totally am human obviously.
You know, they say you are what you eat, and since you just ate a person that means you're arguably more human than non-cannibals
I mean, you don't start becoming a different species just cuz you ate some bad meat. Eat away I say! Make sure you have some seasoning and you cook it first though. Nothing worse than raw meat. OOC: I don't think the action of eating someone else is the thing that throws away your "humanity" I think it's the act of killing them for food that is. So if they're already dead by injury and the meat is safe? No. I don't think it's wrong for you to use it. Just because it came from a human doesn't mean meat is anything but meat. But if you KILL someone to eat them? Then I'd say you're sacrificing your "humanity" for survival.
Is it correct though, to refer such an action as sinful, or inhumane? Who said it was? If the one who says so is human themselves, then it's not objective. If humans are the one deciding, then can I not, as a human, decide that I am no less human for partaking in said action? There are animals that cannibalize their own kind and there isn't much talk of them being seen as lesser for it, so should it be seen differently here?

we breed animals purely to kill them and eat them. is killing and eating another human not the same? i'm not an "animal and human lives are equal" kind of guy, but if you think about it that way, you realize that if killing and eating another human is inhumane, we all lost our humanity long ago.
Yeet that meat. If everyone is going to die and there's absolutely no chance of rescue before food runs out, welp, bye old people and bye children. See you need to get rid of the old and the young at the same time, keeps it all in balance. Humans are just spokes in the great wheel of life after all.

There are cultures out there that have normalized cannibalism, though I suppose they're extremely rare to come by these days.
and there are cultures that have normalized rape, slavery, and murder. what exactly is your point? just because it's been normalized somewhere before, doesn't mean it's correct.
