Archy science guys wondered about this subject,,,
and the Aztecs,,,Toltecs,,,Mexico and South America,,,
had ritual sacrifice,,,so the story goes,,,
and carvings and paintings seemed to show this,,,
they also had found burnt skulls,,,and tool marks,,,
on human bones,,,and broken bones,,,that would fit
in a stew pot,,,so they wondered,,,
and they are smart science guys,,,and know of a protein,,,
in humans,,,but not in animals,,,and not digested,,,
smart guys,,,kinda out smarted themselves,,,a little bit,,,
anyway,,,they knew of the ancient poop piles/dumps,,,
in all the areas,,,dating back from the Spanish
invasion to 2,500 years ago,,,around the Mexico pyramids,,,
everywhere,,,big science,,,studying the dumps,,,
so,,,they went looking for the protein,,,in the dumps,,,
this would prove any theory about any sacrifices or
whatever being eaten,,,in studying the dumps,,,
not only did they indeed find the protein,,,
they couldn't find any poop that didn't have it...
oh and the Spanish???,,,well Aztecs butchered
ate Spanish invaders also,,,but I guess not all of them,,,
so the story goes,,,and I am sure you are wondering,,,
did the Spanish taste better than the Native population???,,,
and on this point I am not sure...

Wasn't there some African or Indonesian tribe
who cooked and ate (at least the skin of) the private
parts of their slain enemies, to gain manliness?
One wonders just how much that sort of thing
has to do with demonstrating and consolidating
the power of the priest class
What better way of striking awe into the commoners?
