Yes, there is a God myth, but unless you know exactly what you are going to replace it with, in the mind of people, good luck to ya.
People want easy answers when you take their old easy answers away, otherwise its easier to call you crazy, try to discredit you, etc.
There is a reason for 'unexplainable' human suffering, yet that it is unimaginable does not help.
Cain offers the fruit of the ground to God while Able sacrifices the firstborn of his flocks. God respects the blood sacrifice but not the offering of
plants. - Genesis 4:2-8
To get God's favor back, what must Cain do? He must sacrifice his own brother. Afterwards, he is rewarded with the mark of Cainship (Kingship) by God
(although we are told it is a bizarre punishment which only serves as a reward, because God doesn't seem to have thought it through?).
Someone said the 'Conquistadores' didn't commit human sacrifice. That is laughable, as who killed more Aztecs, the Aztecs or Conquistadores?
Killing people violently for no reason (ie. the innocents) is ALWAYS sacrifice.
