I would go so far as to say even if they did commit these acts, were they wrong? Are they bad? For the time they lived in, it was a perfectly normal practice. Now it has been cast in an "evil light". But really, is it evil? Dogs eat their young, Spiders eat each other, Praying Mantis also, to name a few.
So the point i cast here, is one i have read in a book recently.
If nature makes us have these urges, and they occur naturally in nature, is it bad?
Animals eat each other, and their own kind, are they going to "animal hell"? Are they "Bad Animals"? They are just acting on urges and instincts instilled by nature. Could it not be considered natural for a human to consume his own kind? As a counter argument, Cows can contract mad cow disease by eating their own kind. To that i say, cows are herbivores and do not "naturally" eat their own kind.
So, assuming they did practice it, is it wrong? Should it be cast in a negative light?
I hope this philosophical post can measure up to the great Attila
