I would like to know if eating an angel would be considered cannibalism. Also, since humans and angels are related, and an evangelion is a giant human, does that mean i would get an s2 engine if i ate an angel? :???:

Question 1: Probably

Quation 2: Probably not, since Evas and angels are not LCL-based, unlike humans

But I thought the show said that human and angel DNA had just a 15% difference, implying that they are related :huh:

well chimpanzee dna is around 95-99% shared with humans , but people (along time ago) used to eat them .
that's not to say that they (are/are not) human, but very close to it.

in today's day and age you could either call it unethical or a minor form of cannibalism.
but the same reason i would not eat a chimp is the same reason i feel like i could not have one as a "pet" , there too human; its almost like slavery, at least to me.

I'm fairly certain if you ate angelic matter. You'd die. Horribly.

Yeah. Didnt Ritsuko say in one of the first few episodes that Evas and humans are almost the same in their genetical structure, but are composed of very different material? (which naturally goes for angels as well, clones of Adam and Lilith, weve all been through this several times by now)
Im pretty sure only Lilith bleeds LCL (since the other Angels are confirmed to not be LCL-based), so the blood of the other 16 has to be something else. Somewhere it was said that Angels blood is sterile, so lets just go with something like formaldehyde as main substance (can be replaced with almost every liquid that isnt water), imagine ingesting that... Id give you about 10 Minutes until you die of poisoning. Assuming that the substance angels are based on isnt actually a neurotoxin, which might just as well be the case

Than why did Unit 01 not die when it was eating Zuriel, since its a clone of Lilith, and I'm pretty sure Lilith is made of LCL. Since Unit 01 is consuming the angels blood, why isn't it dead?

Because Unit 01 is explicitly mentioned to not be composed of the same material as humans.

Given that PWM is basically a metaphor for magic which itself represents imagination juice. I guess you have to ask yourself. Can you eat your own imagination and survive?

Mate thats not how it works... you grill or fry things that are already edible, to get rid of bacteria or a poisonous substance that decays with heat. Given that angels are not affected in the slightest by the immense heat generated when an N2 mine explodes and we have even seen one swim in lava, I think its fairly safe to say that they are, in fact, not vulnerable to heat.
Plus, basically every substance that is made out of more than three or four very specific elements releases harmful or straightup deadly, due to the temperature gaseous, substances upon decay.

So yeah, Id say grilling/frying an angel and think it will be edible afterwards is about the worst idea you could possibly have

I don't see why not. The pilots are submersed in it, and I'm sure they've swallowed instead of breathed in on occasion.
