The Natural Extension of Atheism is... Cannibalism???

What say you? Do you seen anything wrong with raising human meat from stem cells to be consumed? Is it disgusting? Inhumane? Or just a natural extension of the atheistic evolutionary paradigm?

Let's start with the basics. For an atheist there is no inherent or distinct value in human life. There can't be due to the fact that they believe we are simply just higher evolved animals ourselves. Additionally, for them, all life has evolved randomly (or accidentally) and thus is not imbued with any sense of value or morality. What Dawkins is offering up as a test case is completely consistent with his evolutionary and atheistic beliefs. This is why abortion is not a moral problem inherently. "Inherently" is the key word. There can be no such thing as absolute morality which applies equally to all humanity which includes all cultures for all time. I give him credit for being consistent.

However, as a believer in the Bible we are told that all humanity (believing and atheistic sinners) were made and given the image of God (Gen 1:27; James 3:9). Additionally, after the flood when God re-established His covenant with mankind, we are reminded that God would not allow premeditated murder to go unpunished because the image of God in man was so valuable (Gen 9:6). We were given permission to eat the flesh of animals (Gen 9:3-4), but not mankind! 

Just when you think it can't get any crazier.... 

Maranatha!  (Come Lord, Jesus!)
