    One could argue ethically, I was just wondering why no one had brought it up yet, I guess cos it was a bad idea.

    Wow, at this point there is only one immediate route that this "eating your fellow man" brainstorm can take. And I refuse to witness it!

    uh...it's called taking communion...no one is forced to do it, but it's symbolic to 'remember' the last supper and the words Jesus spoke, as well as the crucifixion. The bread is supposed to represent the body, while the g**** juice (or wine in some Churches) represent the blood.

    I think it comes from a mistranslation of the word "consume" in English, which pretty much means to ingest or eat. Yet the original text had a much closer meaning to 'absorb' or to become one with. Most Churches stoped communion, or only practice it on Easter, but many denomination Churches such as Catholics take it far more often- some every service.


    Did someone seriously suggest Feces as a better alternative? This whole topic is making me queasy..

    There are churches that use gr.ape juice? Here in Greece they always use wine. The Greek name of the ceremony (I believe it predates that Latin one) is 'theia eukharistia', which translates as 'divine thanksgiving'. The faithful sip wine and eat bread in remembrance of the Last Supper.

    this turn of the thread is interesting. did you know that the early christians taking of communion was how the romans persecuted them. they were accused of cannibalism. one is supposed to visualize one is actually partaking of christs body and blood.

    so the hapless early christian was forced to say how he/she took communion and blam sentenced to death on the crime of cannibalism.

    In any survivial situation never ever eat (or drink) feces, despite what Mr. Man vs Wild (aka Bear Gryllis) demonstrated. Feces among other things can lead to dysentry.

    My dad is a fairly crazy man in his retirement days. He's looked into research about how the chemical make-up of the communion bread & wine have changed after they're blessed.

    avoid the brain as well, its meant to be a bit rubbish and can transfer some pretty nasty diseases such as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creutzfeldt%E2%80%93Jakob_disease

    I thought that the bread and wine actually being the body and blood of Mr. Christ was introduced to the doctrine relatively late, as in medieval times, and is still a fairly debated tenet.

    Also, if you'd like to eat a human, do it fast. You dont want to eat a rotting corpse, that's for sure...

    Yeah, i've taken it a few times ( i think like 5 times) in my life, and it's always been g**** juice. I'm sure wine is still popular, but i;ve never came across it. I think it's because g**** juice is much less argumentative, a lot of people including myself refuse to drink, and making communion involve wine would just create unnecessary problems that could easily be avoided.

    How quaint. It probably started in the Middle Ages with the Catholic Church because I remember the Hussites revolting because they wanted to use wine at communion, which had been discontinued in northern Europe due to high cost (unless I remember something completely wrong).

    I was raised Lutheran and we had communion every other Sunday, you could also choose between wine and gr.ape juice.
