What do I think of what you said ?


first , if you've ever had a hemrhoidal flareup ,,,,,,,,,,, then you understand how childish it is
to worry about Mods and their mental farts .

second :
complaints about your treatment , though perhaps important to yourself , are nothing but
annoying to a MAN as I am .

and ,,,,,, finally ,
I would like to see something from you , that does not have " YOU " as the main subject .

Remember , you asked , and all I did was answer .

Hi Roger,

you already heard all this,,,long ago,,,on a far away forum,,,

just fer fun now,,,hee hee,,,

Chaco canyon, despite its great power and beauty, was a place of hideous evil, according to Navajo legends. It is said that the Chaco people abused sacred ceremonies, practiced witchcraft and cannibalism, and made a dreaded substance called corpse powder by cooking and grinding up the flesh and bones of the dead. Their evil threw the world out of balance, and they were destroyed in a great earthquake and fire.


The Mystery
Did the ancient Anasazi people of the Southwest - once believed to be a model society - actually practice ritual cannibalism? And if so, why?

The New Theory
For years, the Anasazi were believed to have been a peaceful, democratic people. Yet Anasazi bones uncovered in Chaco Canyon show disturbing signs of violence. Christy Turner, an anthropology professor at Arizona State University, says these strange marks are signs of ritual cannibalism, and he's developed a rigorous set of scientific criteria to prove it. He has found burns on the backs of skulls that indicate that they have been cooked in fires as well as anvil abrasion and breakage marks where bones have been smashed apart with stones.

Welcome to the dark side of the moon," says Taft Blackhorse. He and fellow Navajo Nation archaeologist John Stein are showing me the desolate and windswept site of Kin Klizhin, or "Black Charcoal" in Navajo. The lonely, multistory masonry structure, or "great house," is our first stop in Chaco Culture National Historical Park in northwestern New Mexico. The two have brought me here to explain the origins of the ancient people known as the Anasazi, a sophisticated culture that thrived in the Four Corners region from about a.d. 500 to 1300. Blackhorse and Stein tell a story about Chaco Canyon's dozens of great houses that you won't find in any archaeology textbooks. It's also a story that today's Pueblo people, including the Hopi--who claim the Anasazi legacy as their own and have historically strained relations with the Navajo--reject out of hand.

"This is the barbecue pit," says Blackhorse,

His story, like everything else about Chaco according to Navajo belief, is about the Gambler, an evil magician with a hooked, crooked nose who enslaved the ancient Navajo and forced them to build the great houses of Chaco.

According to Blackhorse, the Gambler rode out to Kin Klizhin on a large reptile that was his guardian. His priests sacrificed humans at the site, and the Gambler, says Blackhorse, came here "to swallow their souls." This is not the tale the NPS tells visitors to Chaco.

Blackhorse's master narrative is straight out of Navajo oral history: Chaco was designed and built by the Navajo at the behest of the Gambler, a Lex Luthor-type villain who came from the south and enslaved the Navajo after beating them at games. He then used Chaco's dark energy to gain control over nature and build a sprawling empire in the Four Corners. According to the Navajo legend, the Gambler also enslaved the Pueblo people.

if you were African American im sure you would disagree with your comment.. what they went through in the USA was and is appalling.. slavery? doesnt get any worse than that.

oh yes, and the genocide of the indigenous peoples of the USA.. come on..

And Australia is without guilt???...


tribal warfare in Africa is worse,,,

tribal warfare among the indigenous peoples of the USA was pretty bad,,,

and the rest of the Americas was really bad,,,

not to justify,,,there is no justification,,,
