The last sacrifce that God accepted was that of Jesus, God no longer accepts blood sacrifices

Answer:Judaism never believed in or condoned human sacrifice. Human sacrifice is a pagan concept.

A sacrifice alone never provided atonement. It was only part of a processes that also included returning to G-d's way and repairing the damage done. Offering a sacrifice drew one close to G-d and repaired the spritaul damage done. Today we can not offer sacrifices in the Temple, instead we donate money thereby redeeming the sacrifice.

Have humans always eaten meat?

Yes they have. Actually, the Bible says no. There was a time when "The lion lay down with the lamb" and "The lions ate grass along with the oxen". The age of animals eating other animals is referred to by God as the "age of lawlessness". Some humans have become enlightened enough to stop eating the animals. I hope to someday rise to that level of conscience-ness as well.
