    Um...no. In any case, cannibalism among native peoples is well attested and supported by archaeological evidence. We know it happened. We know it was ritualistic (i.e not the result of starvation).
    No, we do not. Post your sources.

    We see it in the southwest of what is now the US too, BTW. It seems the Anasazi had a hankering for forbidden morsels but that may have been impacted by changing climate and famine.
    Source?

    Well over 90% of New World population decline was the result of disease. I don't think your evaluation is particularly plausible.
    Didn't say the decline of Native Americans was not the result of disease. It certainly was the result of disease, smallpox mainly, introduced to them by the military and/or settlers. But all this is elementary school education.

    Give me all your sources that state pre-Columbian cannibalism was practiced ritualistically or was ever practiced at all north of what is now Central America/Mexico.

    So you don't know either? OK.

    Yes we do and I already did. Just two examples of course.

    Anyone with an elementary school education would know that the natives weren't "slaughtered".

    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Anasazi turds reveal all...

    http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2000/...-their-enemies

    To uncover whether the butchered humans made it into someone's dinner, a team led by biochemist Richard Marlar of the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver looked for traces of myoglobin, an oxygen-transporting molecule that occurs in skeletal and heart muscles but not in the gut. They developed an assay that distinguishes between human myoglobin and that of nine food animals such as bison and rabbits. The assay found human myoglobin in the coprolite, but no traces of it in any of 25 control human fecal samples. The authors report finding more human myoglobin on shards of a cooking pot, they report in the 7 September issue of Nature.

    No, actually they do not reveal much of anything. What they seem to do is fire up imaginations.

    It's fairly common for combatants in war to eat the hearts of their vanquished enemies. That has occurred into and including the Vietnam war and probably the various ME misadventures. That is to say, you have to rule that out -- you have to rule out this sort of behavior that is definitely not typical of a population. Better yet, bring on more definitive corroborating evidence that cannibalism was a common practice of the Anasazi.
