Genocide wasn't invented by the white race though they may have perfected it.
Based on the archaeological findings, which include two-headed axes that tested positive for human blood, co-authors Jason Chuipka and James Potter believe the genocide occurred as a result of conflict between different Anasazi Ancestral Puebloan ethnic groups.
Why would this kind of killing occur, in spite of our ability to value and treasure human life?
Probably simply because of want or need.

Despite the high regard that we hold of ourselves and our supposedly wonderful way of life technology, and all that, I remember hearing somewhere that it is estimated that we are something like 9 meals away from total chaos.
The unearthed bones and artifacts indicate that when the violence took place, men, women and children were tortured, disemboweled, killed and often hacked to bits.

Anything is possible. My own people the Haudenosaunee (People of the Longhouse) wiped out the Algonquins. In this day and age I don't condone genocide of any kind. After the Revolutionary war my own people were down to about 7000. By some estimates there were more than five million of us before the Europeans came. We can only hope nothing like this ever happens again.

they're still savagely killing each other to this day. We just call them Latino or Hispanic but most of them are native to the Americas (North and South). It's sad. And at the same time I can't help but wonder what kind of possible problems the U.S. could have if disease and the European settlers hadn't wiped out most of our Native Americans..
Anyway, there is something i always found funny, and is how a lot of people talk about "our indians, our natives", "how all will be better without Europeans settlers or conquerors", i think is funny because must people who talk like that is descended from Europeans, not from indians, they are not ours, without the Europeans must of us wont be here today, wont exist in this timelime, our countries wont exist, nothing of that will exist.

You are correct, I for one do not consider Native Americans as "our", they are in my opinion the real Americans and here for how long no one knows for sure. I am second generation American, after my grandparents migrated to America they met, so yes I wouldn't exist if they hadn't come here, they wouldn't have met in Europe since they came from different countries.
You make some excellent points MonteroReal, thank you for posting.
