Most of the "primitive" people practiced cannibalism in one form or another (usually ritual). Even today the Christian religions practice ritual cannibalism substituting bread for actual flesh.

Well that is a rather disturbing way to look at Holy Communion.

Call it what you want but if you didn't know squat about the religion and found some artifacts and some pieces of scribbling 5,000 years after the fact you'd have to conclude that these people worshiped torture, bowed down to idols, engaged in ritually eating their god (the tortured one hanging on the cross?).

Weird, isn't it?
