people starving to death has been a regular part of history for a long time
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_famines

in the last century, approximately 1,000,000 a year starved to death on average

modern agriculture now supports larger and larger populations
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_Revolution

if something impacts the food systems, it would be real real bad. and yes, many people would resort to eating others, but I think most could not bring themselves to do so.

Well MikeK, I would say that the S has indeed HTF, so it's a relevant question~!
We haven't had a complete collapse here in the US, but they are dumping milk; and meat packing plants are shutting down resulting in hogs being euthanized.

Because America's fast food consumption has dropped back from morbidly obese to just seriously obese, for about 2 months

Tell me where Jesus or Moses told about people eating each other in the Bible. I don’t ever remember reading that part. Just because some false idol tells you something doesn’t make it a prophesy.

The bible does pronounce cannibalism as a sort of punishment upon Israel in several places, in Deuteronomy, Lamentations, and I believe Jeremiah.

But most scholars believe it's talking about specific events either during one of the many times God punished Israel in the old testament by conquest, or possibly as late as the Siege of Jerusalem in AD70.

It's somewhat of a stretch to suggest it refers to today....most of the scriptures explicitly speak of a siege....as of a walled city.

But I will say, fear that you or a family member would have to resort to such is a pretty good motivational factor for prepping food. How much money would you be willing to pay to avoid having to eat the corpse of a loved one? $100? $1000? And just think of how much food $1000 could buy.
