    Humans could also digest human meat quite well- look up cannibalism. So going by your logic that means humans are MEANT to eat other humans because we can digest another human quite well.


    Not great logic you're using if you ask me as you are just opening a whole can of worms.
    From a natural perspective it's normal, if we were all still living as hunter gatherers and competing against other tribes it would make sense to eat your rivals.

    Except from the fact that prion diseases are passed on from eating the brains of our own kin causing us to go insane as the protein destroys our own brain over a number of years. Aside from the social stigma, cannnibalism is dangerous, causing disease that cannot be protected against by cooking the meat.

    Your comparison is invalid.

    Humans would not exist if humans and man's predecessor species had not eaten meat, which gave rise to a bigger brain.
