Smallpox and other sickness is the reason for the rapid decline in population, zero immunity.
As for the premise of the noble advanced nature of the native americans of this thread,
Human sacrifice was an integral part of the Aztec religion—as it was for many other societies in the New World, including the Maya. One of the central beliefs of the Aztec world was that Huitzilopochtli, the god of the sun, needed constant nourishment in the form of human blood—seen as the sacred life force—in order to keep the sun moving from east to west across the sky
there is some discrepancy as to whether they killed 20,000 at a time or 20 but it is still human sacrifice, one of the lowest forms of societal practice associated with the uncivilized world. Quite the opposite of comparing them to a society that produced the ten commandments which include thou shalt not kill.
The list in the opening post is hooey make believe phooey.
Evidence of ritualized violence is present in every society and continues to be part of every known culture to this day. I haven't seen anyone denying that ritualized violence was practiced in some segments of all cultural groups. Same with cannibalism. Same with slavery. Same with belief in a higher power of some sort. These practices are what the social sciences call "universals" in society/culture. In other words, it is the normal way to behave until something comes along and replaces it.
The large "urban" population centers in North America have ample, undeniable evidence of these practices. But widespread warfare? I'm still looking for the links to papers showing evidence of wars of conquest prior to contact with Europeans.
You do understand, don't you, that we still practice ritualized violence in the US on regular basis and that people pay lots of money to watch it?
