What Has Relgion Said About Dead Meat?

Correct me if i'm wrong but i'm of the opinion that the two major religions are opposed to people eating meat that hasnt been slaughtered. As in, meat that didnt die on its own of natural causes or disease. Abi?

I dont know the bible well but i have three quotes to back me up a bit on this:

I dont know what or where to quote from the Quran but i'm pretty sure its there.

However, i get confused when people eat some animals that have been dead way long before it reaches the slaughter table eg. Fish, crabs etc. Are there exceptions to this rule?

Actually the new testament does not have Jesus breaking the law of eating unclean animals, because of the traditions of many nations who adopted christianity, loop holes have been found to tryo to convince people that the law of of abstaining from eating dead animals or unclean animals has some how been revoked in the new testatment.

If you look carefully at the chapters that reference this practice in the new testament, there is nothing explicit that really revokes the laws of the Old testament, but realize one thing which is stated by Jesus in the new testatment which says "the Law is made for Man and not Man for the law" If you are religious person then understanding this phrase should put you at ease concerning eating dead flesh or unclean meats.

On the other hand scientifically speaking, endulging in such practices is biologically unhealthy for you as proven by science.

I dont think not wanting to eat meat that wasnt slaughtered, has anything to do with religion.

Why would anyone want to eat an animal that died of unknown causes?

Personally, I cant knowingly eat anything that died mysteriously, since I dont know what sickness killed it. Nothing to do with religion, as far as I'm concerned.

All things being equal of course. If you're starving none of this applies.

Dude!! I'm sure they expect them to go to the local grocery store or deli and buy some T-bone steaks and Croned beef or prolly order some pizza from Pizza hut. What rubbish.

The day you people stop living in fear of the after life and start trying to survive this life that you already have, maybe then things would change for the better.

Then they might as weel live on daily rations of unleaven bread and wine.

Please stop the next time you see some roadkill regardless of how long it's been laying there, pick up the dead animal then take it home and cook it for your family, dont forget to pray to Ea-Zeus Christos to bless the meat for you and hope you don't end up in a hospital.

Why don't you numskulls go tell the aborigines that live in papau new guinea who can't herd cattle or find your brand of sustenance to stop eating dead pigs they happen to find and the die.

When they do then god will welcome them into heaven.

Numskulls!!

Why is this important in anyway? Would you re-organise your life based on the bible's (or K-ran's) stipulation on matters of diet?
