I haven't seen the movie. But you're right, many SAD-eaters view RAF-eaters as little better than cannibals.

Cannibalism was, apparently, very much a part of the Palaeolithic Diet that our ancestors practised.(though there are other claims that the bones were either eaten by other mammals, not humans, or that humans simply scraped and cleaned the bones of the dead prior to burial).

 I remember coming across a mention of 1 book which claimed that cannibalism(and, specifically, the eating of human brains) led to bigger human brains and evolution. The book was by an author specialising in the occult, so isn't too reliable. But it was amusing to hear of it. Can't find the reference, any more, though.

Anyway, I think I've just about reached my boundaries as far as diet is concerned. I'll happily eat rotting meat/raw meat and the like, here's no way I would ever contemplate eating faeces, drinking urine or eating my fellow humans. Besides, human flesh, raw or otherwise, must be mostly pretty disgusting and unhealthy since the vast majority of humans eat such crappy cooked diets.

This is something I've never come across in literature. I've read of modern primitives engaging in cannibalism in isolated areas as a ritualistic practice tied to warfare, but never as a widespread phenomenon. Do you have links regarding the paleolithic practice of it?
The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd.

There's plenty of info on this online:-
