I would rather die than eat human flesh.
I would resort to cannibalism like Gregorio Marizan.
I would be willing to kill and eat someone to increase my chances of survival.
I don't know, I would have to be in the situation.

It was supposed to be a quick trip from the Dominican Republic to Puerto Rico. But after a broken engine and violent waters caused them to go off course, Gregorio Maria Marizan and his fellow castaways found themselves clinging on to the last threads of life. Marizan saw the boat's passengers die one by one over the course of two weeks. When the 28th person died, the remaining survivors decided not to throw him overboard. In a desperate act, the castaways cut little pieces of flesh from the corpse and swallowed them. The five survivors were eventually rescued by a Coast Guard helicopter.

In a situation like this, would you resort to cannibalism to survive?

    Yes. In a fight for survival I wouldn't second guess my growling stomach. If I had the physical strength, and the stomach was giving me the signals, than I would not stand back and contemplate it. I love life to much and I wouldn't give up without a good fight. I would eat my own or animal feces if I had to.

    Yea, it would probably be tough to turn the knife & fork on my mom or dad or other family members or even a child, but meat is meat. In a situation where I'd have to, I would have to brush the immorality of it aside. If I was gravely hurt, I would tell others to consume my flash if I knew my chances were slim to none of survival.
    I would quickly come to the conclusion that either the survivors or the animals can get to me, and I would rather it would be the survivors.
    But if I had to do it, I'd try to spare others the misery and guilt of getting the meat, and just drag the corps off and take care of the cutting and cooking( if possible) and provide them with their portions. If possible and I felt there was a need for it, I would probably lie to them and tell them it was something other then human flash.

    That said, I want to add that I would never commit murder of a fellow human being to sustain my life.

    I would never be able to kill someone but maybe if I didn't think about what I was doing I could down the meat to survive.

    Human flesh is very nutritious. Think about it, what other animal has all the nutrients that we need in exactly the right proportions?

    You bet your ass I would. It wouldn't be easy and I wouldn't be proud of my decision but I would do it. I'd also try to encourage everyone else to also do it so they don't die also. But I would not kill anyone to do it.

    Ya know, I've been in situations where I ran out of food and was stuck. Camping primarily. But we used to go in some pretty desolate places. Even then, I'm sorry, the LAAAAST thing I would EVER consider, actually it wouldn't even BE a consideration, is eating another human being. I'm sorry, that's just gross.

    When a navy seal runs out of food, they are taught to eat bugs. I never heard of a Navy Sealsman saying to his commanding officer, "Hey look, dude, I was hungry!!! Sue me!!! Bobby had ta' go!"

    I have learned that a person is capable of doing something, that they would have bet the farm that would not do. The situation quite often give way to a desperate act.

    I guess if I were to be in that situation I might try some human but only if they were already dead. I can't say whether I would be able to keep that meat down! eeek!
