Interesting, LL. I know there are brilliant minds out there who work on this stuff, but I often wonder how often we get our interpretations of these mysteries right (or wrong)? We may be able to get the lab results right, but what about the less tangible?

According to another interpretation, of a different pre-Columbian culture (Aztec), they wanted the children sacrifices to be suffering and in pain so they would cry, and "water the earth".

That's pretty interesting.  I'm sure belief systems all over the ancient world were just as far out.  I'm glad we don't do that now... well most of us.  There are still some crazy people out there that do some cruel things in the name of their god.

Most recently there, this year, was a cult (I forget who/what they worshipped) that tossed an infant into fire as a sacrifice to their "god"...  sometimes all it takes for a group of people to commit such atrocities is a charismatic leader with crazy ideas and a weak mind.
