Of course, it's easier to say that than to do it, I rather suspect!

In addition, I'm not sure I could kill someone else in order to survive (unless they were an attacker, obviously). For whatever reason, the concept of sacrifice is ingrained into me. I would see it as my place to give my life so that the other could live. That's quite possibly irrational (if, for example, I were obviously the more valuable member of society), but it's not entirely a matter of reason.

  • Would You Eat Someone?Uru Hammer, Thu Jan 20 09:29
    If you were starving and lost, and someone else with you died, would you eat them? What if they had not yet died, but you were starving. Would you kill them and eat them? Personally, I don't think I... more

    • I don't want to die.Ken C, Sun Jan 23 03:21
      I would eat a dead person. I think it would be fairly easy to eat a dead person. The person is already dead, and I wouldn't want to die. I want to stay alive. I would do what I needed to survive.... more
      • We all want to survive... but once we do, we have to live with what we did.... Siã☀©, Tue Feb 1 20:32
        For me, there are just a few things that are worse than dying that I wouldn't want to have to live with... or so I believe... Never having had to be in that situation, I don't KNOW, I only believe...

      • Without a second thoughtEurogod, Thu Jan 20 20:29
        I'd kill and eat someone if it meant survival, unless that someone was a child, in which case no. But if you're an adult, and you're there when I need to feast on human flesh, you best not fall... more

          slighter better than aforementioned Catholic Priest, since as I said, I wouldn't harm a child.

    • It's just meat.PureStevil, Thu Jan 20 10:39
      Once they're dead it's just meat and bones. However, as finicky as I am about normal food, it'd have to be quite dire circumstances to even consider it. I definitely would not kill them against their ... more
