Actually if you look at my first few posts I was definitely not just trying to argue. I was presenting information. The transbustantantiation of the Eaucharist is very much a teaching in itself, as Windigo Cons of my Ojibwe tribe also see a type of transbustantiation. Teachings of the flesh to be transformed into teachings of the spirit. Even look up the world Cannibilism the two go one after the other.
"In the Christian tradition, cannibalism is believed to be undertaken (in some cases symbolically) in the form of communion and the Eucharist. Protestants, in general, consider communion as symbolic, while Catholics teach that the Eucharist is literal, through their belief of transubstantiation.
Hindu mythology describes evil demons called "asura" or "rakshasa" that dwell in the forests and practice extreme violence including devouring their own kind, and possess many evil supernatural powers. These are however the Hindu equivalent of "demons" and do not relate to actual tribes of forest-dwelling people.
The Wendigo (also Windigo, Weendigo, Windago, Windiga, Witiko, Wihtikow, and numerous other variants) is a mythical creature appearing in the mythology of the Algonquian people. It is a malevolent cannibalistic spirit into which humans could transform, or which could possess humans. Those who indulged in cannibalism were at particular risk, and the legend appears to have reinforced this practice as taboo. The name is Wiindigoo in the Ojibwe language (the source of the English word), Wìdjigò in the Algonquin language, and Wīhtikōw in the Cree language; the Proto-Algonquian term was *wi·nteko·wa, which probably originally meant "owl".["
My intent of introducing this into this thread was also to show sheye that this exact teaching of bread and wine seen as the body of Christ is actually very similar to many more belief systems throughout history, and different cultures, some existing and being practiced today. That her view of cannibilism is what she makes it, that to some people cannibilism has been an expression of physical and spiritual growth (being more one) through representation alone, not just literally speaking, and that cannibilism just like anything else is subject to reasoning.
First you should understand why something is done, with what reasons, and how it is applied. Cannibilism has been around from the beginning of history til this day through out the world....do I see people eating everyone because of the bread and wine being Christ's body?
