John DS,This is a bit off-topic, but I feel like saying it. I don't believe humans are special. We have feelings and inclinations and patterns of behavior, but I don't trust them to point to any truth.
If human beings are not special, then surely we should resort to this:

Walk into your nearest butcher shop or supermarket’s meat department and look at the choices: beef, veal, mutton, lamb, pork and chicken. In some meat departments you may find turkey, geese and duck.
However, there is a kind of flesh you will not find in Australian butchers’ meat trays.
Which meat is missing?
Why can’t I buy homo sapiens’ chops, people porterhouse steak, mortal mince, lady beef rissoles, macho sausages, and human BBQ spare ribs? Why not?
Tribes of human beings in the past used to eat each other. They were called cannibals.
Is it illegal to eat human flesh in your country? Why or why not? If human beings are not special, why can't we expect to see their flesh with BBQ spare ribs along with monkey rib fillet?
