Op is right. Why cant anyone come up with evidence that isnt written in the colonial period, and why do people keep claiming the colonial writings as evidence. wtf?
You do realize that obsidian is sharper then surgical steel right?link
we all know that taking the heart out of the chest is an extremely complicated surgical procedure, which needs tools like surgical saws and scalpels, which Aztecs did not possess.
So it is possible they could make the cuts but I am inclined to agree that the beating heart is just embelishment on the Spaniards part.
Obsidian has been used for blades in surgery, as well-crafted obsidian blades have a cutting edge many times sharper than high-quality steel surgical scalpels, the cutting edge of the blade being only about 3 nanometers thick. Even the sharpest metal knife has a jagged, irregular blade when viewed under a strong enough microscope; when examined even under an electron microscope an obsidian blade is still smooth and even. One study found that obsidian incisions produced narrower scars, fewer inflammatory cells, and less granulation tissue in a group of rats. Don Crabtree produced obsidian blades for surgery and other purposes, and has written articles on the subject.

I'm really really sick of repeating myself.
Those aren't altars for human sacrifice, but for other offerings.

Secondly.......... still beating hearts? Give me a break! Even to take out the heart from persons chest with an obsidian knife the Aztecs had would be a complete mess, and the possibility of it still beating is even more ridiculous, we all know that taking the heart out of the chest is an extremely complicated surgical procedure, which needs tools like surgical saws and scalpels, which Aztecs did not possess.

OP Mel Gibson, from what I understand had a lot of research done for this movie.
Mel Gibson and his father are Opus Dei. Please research this Catholic cult before responding........Gibson's reputation as a spokesman for the elite follows him. His movie about the so-called life of "The" Christ is a pure macabre fabrication as was the movie that supposedly is an accurate portrayal of the Mayan culture of death (not Aztecs) - APOCALYPTO ....... but still produced with the power elite's agenda in mind nonetheless.......Mel Gibson is a story teller for the power behind the power elite.........he's not much different than Oliver Stone and his phoney version of 9/11 (and JFK) which was also perfectly suited to the needs of the power elite.
Researchers in Mexico had noticed what they believed were fossilized blood stains on stone knives as long as 20 years ago. But the institute said it took a methodical examination using a scanning electron microscope to positively identify the human tissues on 31 knives from the Cantona site in the central Mexico state of Puebla.

This stinks of more Marxist revisionism. The Aztecs were one of the most blood-thirsty cultures that this world has ever produced. Blood sacrifice is a sure way to get God's attention in a negative way. All cultures that practice this will be destroyed, including the abortion culture we are living in now.
