According to an AP article, new findings by archeological forensics teams based in Mexico City confirm that before the evil European colonizers came to “tame” the so-called primitive Aztec and Mayan cultures of South America and usurp their land, these two vibrant civilizations did in fact engage in human sacrifice on a wide scale, most often of children—cutting out hearts, decapitating, clawing, slicing, stoning, crushing, skinning or burning to death, as well as stuffing body parts into cooking dishes. It was considered a good omen if the children cried a lot at the time of sacrifice, which scientists believe was most likely done by slitting their throats.

To think, all that culture…lost.
