1. saying something is wrong because "society" deems it wrong is stupid. think for yourself, for once. 2. yes, the humans being served had emotions and thoughts and feelings. and those emotions, thoughts, and feelings lead them to want to be served at this restaurant. you can't pull that card if they wanted to be prepared and eaten. this negates it.
[QUOTE=Viephemeral;24475448] All in all, unless you're a fucking robot with no sense of moral direction, you wouldn't eat human flesh. Oh and I love the though guys that keep saying "LOL I WUD SO TRY IT".[/QUOTE] What if my sense of moral direction differs from what general society believes?
Well it's part of culture for some people, so I don't really see a problem with it. Meat is meat, and it's voluntary to give it to them to cook anyways.
[QUOTE=Savaril;24476974]if you think my argument is poor, explain why. don't present an ad hominem argument as a legitimate argument, you fallacious turd.[/QUOTE] "but not everyone is like you, so stop asserting that simply because you find it abhorrent, it should be illegal. it's not hurting anybody" Weird - because there appears to be a problem in that. The person eating the human - the only who is more likely to get diseases and illnesses from eating one of their own. The problem is with you. The most ironic thing is you're the one presenting ad hominem - look at what you just wrote to me? Just get over yourself and read back a bit. [editline]10:33AM[/editline] The best thing is, this restraunt isn't going to even be serving human meat...

[/QUOTE] i don't think you know what ad hominem means.
[QUOTE=Savaril;24477703]they aren't any more likely to get a disease eating human flesh than they are to get a disease eating any other sort of meat.[/QUOTE] Ahh, yeah they are. For instance, something like Kuru could pop up again from cannibalism, and disease such as HIV are likely to be transferred, even with the proper cooking of meat. [QUOTE=Savaril;24477703]i don't think you know what ad hominem means.[/QUOTE] I do indeed, and what you described is your viewpoint. If you knew the problems of cannibalism, then you'd know it cannot be good, "even if the meet is properly cooked".

[QUOTE=TheHydra;24477864]that's why before they're served they have to provide a medical record, can't you read?[/QUOTE] Read what? [editline]10:44AM[/editline] Before they're served - that doesn't faze you at all?
[QUOTE=DogGunn;24477918]Read what? [editline]10:44AM[/editline] Before they're served - that doesn't faze you at all?[/QUOTE] the fucking article! did you forget this was a news thread? if their record shows no diseases, then there's no chance of getting an illness!
[QUOTE=TheHydra;24477947]the fucking article! did you forget this was a news thread? if their record shows no diseases, then there's no chance of getting an illness![/QUOTE] Did you also read the article which says it's an advertising ploy? I guess not.
[QUOTE=DogGunn;24477800]Ahh, yeah they are. For instance, something like Kuru could pop up again from cannibalism, and disease such as HIV are likely to be transferred, even with the proper cooking of meat.[/QUOTE] you have to provide a good medical record to donate your meat. this will avert that problem, so that argument does not really apply here. [QUOTE=DogGunn;24477800]I do indeed, and what you described is your viewpoint. If you knew the problems of cannibalism, then you'd know it cannot be good, "even if the meet is properly cooked".[/QUOTE] an ad hominem argument is when you present an insult in place of the argument. calling my argument flawed with no further elaboration is essentially an ad hominem (there's a difference between doing this and using an insult in addition to your argument, by the way). please stop talking out of your ass.
And plus, that's not the problem - new diseases could come about from cannibalism that are undetectable.

[QUOTE=Savaril;24477968]you have to provide a good medical record to donate your meat. this will avert that problem, so that argument does not really apply here.[/QUOTE] Nah, you have to fill out a medical form before you can make a booking. Nothing makes any mention of it being for the donor. [QUOTE=Savaril;24477968]an ad hominem argument is when you present an insult in place of the argument.[/QUOTE] Which is pretty much what you did.
[QUOTE=DogGunn;24477961]Did you also read the article which says it's an advertising ploy? I guess not.[/QUOTE] Well, the argument is more about the concept of cannibalism rather than this restaurant specifically.
[QUOTE=TheHydra;24477414]1. saying something is wrong because "society" deems it wrong is stupid. think for yourself, for once. 2. yes, the humans being served had emotions and thoughts and feelings. and those emotions, thoughts, and feelings lead them to want to be served at this restaurant. you can't pull that card if they wanted to be prepared and eaten. this negates it.[/QUOTE] Just because it was okay for them doesn't make it ok for me, it's completely dependant on the individual and is not relevant to the legality It's an interesting way to express freedom, and I support that, but I wont be eating there any time soon
[QUOTE=DogGunn;24477993]And plus, that's not the problem - new diseases could come about from cannibalism that are undetectable.[/QUOTE] New diseases in our food isn't restricted to cannibalism.
[QUOTE=Billiam;24478046]Well, the argument is more about the concept of cannibalism rather than this restaurant specifically.[/QUOTE] If this restraunt didn't serve human meat, then there is no chance of cannibalism becoming a socially accepted practice. All the people saying they'd try human meat are outcasts of society. [editline]10:50AM[/editline] [QUOTE=Billiam;24478073]New diseases in our food isn't restricted to cannibalism.[/QUOTE] But are more likely to come about from eating so close ot the foodchain.
[QUOTE=DogGunn;24477993]And plus, that's not the problem - new diseases could come about from cannibalism that are undetectable.[/QUOTE] new diseases and health concerns could come from anywhere. oh and by the way, a lot of food we sell today already causes major health concerns, yet they're still legal. [QUOTE=DogGunn;24478036]Which is pretty much what you did..[/QUOTE] mind showing me where? [QUOTE=DogGunn;24478075]If this restraunt didn't serve human meat, then there is no chance of cannibalism becoming a socially accepted practice. All the people saying they'd try human meat are outcasts of society..[/QUOTE] you've yet to explain why it shouldn't be a socially accepted practice- the only reason you've given is "because it's not a socially accepted practice" which is some of the worst circular logic i've ever seen
[QUOTE=DogGunn;24478075]If this restraunt didn't serve human meat, then there is no chance of cannibalism becoming a socially accepted practice. All the people saying they'd try human meat are outcasts of society.[/QUOTE] Except if another restaurant served human meat? Also I'm not really an outcast of society. [QUOTE=DogGunn;24478075]But are more likely to come about from eating so close ot the foodchain.[/QUOTE] I can't really see that as a problem considering the two cases of this were both prion diseases. And I think you can test for that.
Amazing, just when I thought FP was starting to grow a brain. Typical internet know it alls who are almost always wrong.
[QUOTE=Savaril;24478171]you've yet to explain why it shouldn't be a socially accepted practice- the only reason you've given is "because it's not a socially accepted practice" which is some of the worst circular logic i've ever seen[/QUOTE] You're not going to find a good reason as to why it shouldn't, more like why it probably wont catch on. And I've already explained that part to you
[QUOTE=DogGunn;24478236] Typical internet know it alls who are almost always wrong.[/QUOTE] the fucking irony of this statement astounds me
[QUOTE=DogGunn;24478236]Amazing, just when I thought FP was starting to grow a brain. Typical internet know it alls who are almost always wrong.[/QUOTE] Don't be an idiot, there's no reason against this opening and noone is forcing you to eat there, I for one, am staying as far fucking away as humanly possible

Am I the only person who is completely repulsed by this idea maybe I'm just old-fashioned but if someone offered me human meat my first response would not be "why not"
[QUOTE=DogGunn;24478515]Except it's not opening - so why pretend?[/QUOTE] Well, what better a time to discuss the plausibility of the legality of cannibalism in the western world, right?
New topic of discussion. If you are one of the few who said they would try human meat, you are NO LONGER ALLOWED TO JUDGE PEOPLE IF THEY. -fuck their grandma. -fuck their mom. -are furries. -enjoy sex with children. -eat other people's shit. These people are not weird in that case.

These people are not weird in that case.[/QUOTE] 1. incest actually has proven, consistent, studied negative consequences, so that's why you shouldn't do it 2. a lifestyle of dressing up as and fucking animals =/= trying human meat 3. a lifestyle of fucking children =/= trying human meat 4. eating fecal matter is, once again, proven to be terribly dangerous, unlike eating human meat
[QUOTE=Viephemeral;24478991]-fuck their grandma. -fuck their mom.[/QUOTE] both of these cause health concerns [QUOTE=Viephemeral;24478991] -are furries.[/QUOTE] in terms of weirdness, i don't have a problem with the fetish. i have a problem with the fact that the majority of furries feel a need to tell everyone about their fetish; usually via a furry avatar or something. [QUOTE=Viephemeral;24478991] -enjoy sex with children. [/QUOTE] i don't have a problem with this itself, it's the act of having sex with children that bothers me moreso than the fact that the person would enjoy it if they did do it. the problem is that children are far too young to fully grasp the concept of sex, and can not be trusted to give consent until a certain age. more often than not they're taken advantage of. [QUOTE=Viephemeral;24478991] -eat other people's shit.[/QUOTE] i think this is gross and i don't wish to indulge in it myself, but if somebody else wants to, that's fine.
