Hmmmm....Wasn't that about the time that Columbus was here. Are they sure that these weren't something to do with the mass killings the Spanish did at around that time?

As far as I'm concerned the Aztecs had a far more advanced civilization than Europe at the time. It was only their lack of metalworking skills that would doom them to Spanish conquest.


Would you be so admiring of the advanced Aztec civilization if they moved in next door to you and sacrificed your children?

You know, there was human sacrifice in the old world too...

A wicker man was a large wicker statue of a human used by the ancient Druids (priests of Celtic paganism) for human sacrifice by burning it in effigy, according to Julius Caesar in his Commentarii de Bello Gallico (Commentary on the Gallic War).

I have never sacrificed anyone, neither in the old world nor the new.

Human sacrifice is evil.

I rarely disagree with you Sugar, but this is one of those rare times.


I'm not attempting to even try to justify any Conquistador or religious agenda, but human sacrifice is barbaric and against most intrinsic morals of normal human nature. The fact that there is a large handful of civilizations (and I use the term "civilization" loosely in this case) over the history of mankind that engaged in human sacrifice, does nothing to validate such vain and unproductive savagery.

I liken the circumstance of human sacrifice to that of cannibalism--- neither of which are natural inclinations of human nature under normal conditions, and both of which are natural aversions of same.

Thanks for addressing that very point. To say the Aztec were savage and the Spaniards not is conveniently overlooking the millions slaughtered by Spain in the name of God and King.
As far as I'm concerned the Aztecs had a far more advanced civilization than Europe at the time. It was only their lack of metalworking skills that would doom them to Spanish conquest.
The burning of every manuscript by the friars (pun intended) was an act of ignorance on par with the burning of the library of Alexandria.
The Spanish only did a favor for themselves in destroying the Aztec empire and was mainly due to Cortez' insatiable lust for glory and riches.


True that.

Cortez could easily be described as a glory-seeking, ruthless murderer. No doubt he was a cunning, driven acheiver, who exploited anything in his path to further his lust for power, recognition and riches.

However, I still stand by the perspective towards the practice of human sacrifice as primitive, cruel and exceedingly brutal.

Personally, if I came upon someone carving another human being's heart out, or eating their face for that matter, I would empty a clip in them, no questions asked.
Maybe my reaction would seem brutal and savage in and of itself, but surely I don't have to explain the logical impetus behind it.

So much for the claims by descendants that the Aztecs weren't doing human sacrifice. The thing I find so odd is these people had no dental health care and yet just look at those teeth 500 years later. Unbelievable.

S+F for this one OP

We put sugar in our food, guaranteeing when you go to sleep that tooth decay will start working on your enamel. The ancients didn't put sugar in their food. Take a look at mumified ancient egyptian teeth, the only wear their teeth have is from sand getting in their bread and grinding their teeth down, but no trace of toothdecay. Modern man now, we have so many things killing us, and right now its the food and water we eat giving us things like diabetes, cancer, heart disease, neurological disorders. Yep that illuminati plan to kill off the world pop is in full swing, we're just waiting for the other shoe to drop and the elderly are going to feel that shoe drop first here shortly.

Often said, but it is likely, given what we know of the Druids and their teachings, that Julius said thus-and-so to justify his own military barbarities. I have read that J. Caesar was responsible for about a million deaths. A far better subject to cite is the civilization of Carthage.
