Richard Dawkins wants us to eat cultured human meat

Really. (Hat tip.)

It’s enough to make anyone a vegetarian.

Controversial scientist, Richard Dawkins, suggests that eating human meat created in the lab may help overcome the ‘taboo against cannibalism’.

He envisions human flesh becoming a form of ‘clean meat’ – a product created using stem cells that could help feed the world without slaughtering any creatures.

The renowned atheist made the comments on Twitter after posting an article about the benefits of clean meat.

The British biologist said creating human meat to eat could be an ‘interesting test case’ for ‘consequentialist morality versus “yuck reaction” absolutism.’
