Richard Dawkins says we should get over our ‘yuck’ taboo against cannibalism

Fellowship of the Minds – by Dr. Eowyn

Add another voice to the growing pop culture “normalization” of cannibalism.

It’s Richard Dawkins, 76, the celebrated British evolutionary biologist and rabid atheist who says there’s nothing wrong about pedophilia and it’s our moral duty to kill the mentally retarded.

On March 3, 2018, referring to a news article in the Independent on lab-grown meat being on restaurant menus by the end of this year, Dawkins asks in a tweetif human meat can be grown, and calls the “taboo” against cannibalism a knee-jerk “yuck reaction” of a rigid moral absolutism:

“Tissue culture ‘clean meat’ already in 2018? I’ve long been looking forward to this. What if human meat is grown? Could we overcome our taboo against cannibalism? An interesting test case for consequentialist morality versus ‘yuck reaction’ absolutism.”

Note: Consequentialism is a school of thought that says the morality of an action depends on the consequences it creates. A moral action is one that produces a positive or beneficial outcome; an immoral action is one that produces a negative outcome. Of course, what “positive” and “negative” mean are undefined. In other words, consequentialist morality is the end justifies the means — what is moral is what benefits me, aka moral relativism.

Richard Dawkins decries our taboo against cannibalism as an unthinking, emotional (“yuck reaction”) moral absolutism, as opposed to the end-justifies-the-means consequentialist morality he approves. What escapes me is the positive or beneficial end of cannibalism. Dawkins, in his senile-demented and demon-possessed mind, must think kuru to be the “positive” end that justifies cannibalism.

Note: Kuru — spongiform encephalopathy or human mad cow disease — is an incurable neurodegenerative disease transmitted via cannibalism.

Here’s a thought: Dawkins’ advocacy of cannibalism itself may be a result and symptom of kuru.

In his book, The God Delusion, Dawkins wrote:

“It seems to me to require quite a low self-regard to think that, should belief in God suddenly vanish from the world, we would all become callous and selfish hedonists, with no kindness, no charity, no generosity, nothing that would deserve the name of goodness.”

By his advocacy for pedophiliakilling the mentally retarded, and now pointless cannibalism, Dawkins precisely demonstrates the very “callous and selfish hedonists, with no kindness, no charity, no generosity, nothing that would deserve the name of goodness” of a world banished of the divinity.

Richard Dawkins is an exemplar of what Fyodor Dostoyevsky so presciently observed 138 years ago in The Brothers Karamazov:

“In a world without God, everything is permitted.”

    1. LOL… couldn’t find a video clip of this one from ‘Cloud Atlas’, but it was a very funny scene…

      “Timothy Cavendish: “Soylent Green are people!” (Jim Broadbent)

    1. Ever watch Sopranos…..meat processing plant…ya think that is fake?….I never eat sausage …just sayin 🙂

  1. This freak just wants to keep his name in the news by making outrageous statements. It’s very likely that he’s working for the criminal Zionists, and his job is to suggest distasteful topics so they can be “brought into discussion”, which is the first step toward eventually making outrageous behavior acceptable to the public.

    No, I’m not good with cannibalism, but I will feed this son-of-a-bitch to my dog.

  2. I will say this again:
    When The SHTF, ANYONE found eating human flesh will be summarily executed.
    No exceptions.
    No excuses.
    No mercy.

  3. They want to reduce us to unprincipled savages, not the noble savages that history highlights.

    A couple of definitions of Noble Savage:

    >> Noble savage, in literature, is an idealized concept of uncivilized man, who symbolizes the innate goodness of one not exposed to the corrupting influences of civilization.

    >> A noble savage … embodies the concept of the indigene, outsider, wild human, an other who has not been corrupted by civilization, and therefore symbolizes humanity’s innate goodness.

    A few times I heard Henry say, “You need to become a savage.” Now I think I understand, at our core, WE TRULY ARE NOBLE SAVAGES. WE ARE GOODNESS!!


  4. The book titled Alive was written by author Piers Paul Read about the Uruguayan Rugby team whose plane crashed in the the Andes mountains in 1972. Those survivors might get a pass.
