Introduction
I. Imagine our class as a rugby team and Mrs. Edwards as our coach as we were flying
over the Himalayas for a tournament until our plane suddenly crashes.

A. Although we're most of us survived, we barely have any food to live on.
B. Would we have to resort to cannibalism?
II. Cannibalism can be defined as any animal or human that eats their own kind.
A. But for the sake of my speech, we will focus on humans.
B. I know that you may be thinking how on earth I arrived to this topic or whether or
not to hang around me but I consider cannibalism to be an interesting topic.

III. There are various ways cannibalism has been regarded today.
A. Cannibalism has been regarded as a strong aspect of pre-historical cultures around the world.
B. Cannibalism has been a prevailing conflict in today's moral society.
C. Cannibalism has also been used as a means of survival.
IV. Although I haven't eaten anyone…yet, I have consulted various databases for my topic.
A. I have printed information off reliable websites.
B. I have delved into two books by other enthused cannibal experts.
C. I have also used Ebsco to find current articles on this hot topic.
V. Today I will present you my information in a topical format which is divided into subtopics.
A. We will first see how cannibalism has been prevalent in historical cultures.
B. We will then examine modern day cannibalism as justification for psychopathic actions.
C. And finally, we will see how cannibalism has been used as a means of survival.

(Transition: Let us first look at cannibalism's influence in prehistoric cultures.)

Body
I. Cannibalism has etched its mark in many cultures around the world.
A. The oldest evidence of cannibalism among Neanderthals was found in sites in the
French cave Ardeche in southeastern France.

1. Neanderthals are cousins of modern human beings who lived in Europe 125,000 to
30,000 years ago who practiced cannibalism.

2. The bones of six Neanderthals were found dismembered and were suggested not for ritual but to be eaten instead.
B. Aztec Indian culture around the 1540's also suggests cannibalism integrated into culture.
1. Described by Peggy Reeves Sanday in her book Divine Hunger, As many as 15,000
people were sacrificed and feasted upon each year at the great Aztec Temple Tenochtitlan.

2. The motives to these rituals included feasting especially on the human heart was a
means of gaining strength and immortality.

3. Other factors to cannibalism included cold winters, drought famine, competition among Indian groups.
C. Cannibalism once took center stage in funeral practices in New Guinea.
1. Partial consumption of dead relatives was a profound gesture of ritual solidarity and magical continuance.
a. Finger and jaw bones of relatives were consumed for supernatural communication.
b. Flesh of deceased was thought suitable for invalids.

(Transition: Now that we know cannibalism's presence in primitive cultures, let's look at
cannibalism as a means for modern-day psychopathic actions.)


II. I will focus on two pivotal cannibals in modern society.
A. The more recent and famous cannibal is the well-known Jeffrey Dahmer.
1. At the age of 16, Dahmer's cannibalistic behavior begun with his interest in
chemistry and in torturing and dismembering animals.

2. After committing around 17 murders, he was considered a cannibal because of how he consumed flesh and blood
3. Others do not consider him a cannibal because he only "tasted" flesh a few times.
B. Alfred Packer is a lesser known cannibal but is well known for his works in the
Colorado mining industry in the 1870's.

1. Packer worked as a guide for prospecting trip into the San Juan Mountains in Colorado.
2. Packer and five others ventured far into the mountains during the winter and he
later mysteriously came out alone.

  • United States Expansion
    United States Expansion Throughout the first half of the 1800s or 19th century there were many factors influencing United States expansion. From the Louisiana Purchase in 1803 to the Gadsden Purchase in 1853 the United States had tripled in size since its original thirteen colonies and only paid forty-five million dollars in doing so. The idea of Manifest Destiny spread quickly throughout the country and soon thousands were moving westward in search of a new way of life. The idea of Manifest Des

Obviously most of the chapter is intended to spark pity and a sense of sympathy for the poor, suffering farm animals, but the old Major\'s words are very telling. The "wise" old pig addresses the central conflict of the book, and of Orwell\'s intended meaning-- tyranny. The first (and seemingly only) dictatorship the animals must overcome is the rule of Mr. Jones and the other humans. T

    Gericaults Raftas legacy in art and politics Theodore Gericault\'s greatest legacy as an artist is undoubtedly his Raft of the Medusa, completed in 1819. The painting is the comprehensive result of experiments with a variety of forms and styles; it marks the apogee of Gericault\'s career. Beautiful and horrible, incidental and ubiquitous, monumental without a specific hero, The Raft of the Medusa was to the Salon of 1819 a complete paradox. The painting\'s first critics were divided in their ass

    A Modest Proposal An Ironic Proposal Unlike most essays, Jonathan Swift\'s "A Modest Proposal" is written for the reader to see through what the narrator is expressing. The narrator does not want the reader to agree that the solution to overpopulation and poverty in Ireland is to eat babies, he wants the reader to see there needs to be a practical solution. By stating the advantages and objections to his proposal, using ironic words and phrases, he directs the reader not to see the apparent, but

  • The Mission
    The Mission The Future is Now There are three working theories the “Time Traveler” developed upon his visit to the distant future. The first is the laziness of what human-kind has become.

The glorification of technology is not the answer to the “utopian” life we all seek. The first theory of the “laziness” of human-kind is unfolding today. We g

    The Tragic Hero "Man is here too little and too passive to play the tragic hero". In Death of a Salesman, Miller presents us with a new version of what we define as tragedy. If we look to the Greek plays such as Oedipus Rex, we are shown very fixed ideas of tragedy that involve a hero falling from high stature to the depths of depravity by the mistakes that he has made. Indeed, Aristotle termed tragedy as downfall that was not the fault of the hero. However, he produced his definitions based lar

As a youngster Henri was brought up in the Protestant faith, which was the opposite of his father’s wishes. As result, Henri was taken to Paris on his father’s orders and given a Catholic tutor.
