Wayne Roberts, Did I miss the mention of ritual sacrifices of tens of thousands carried out by the Aztecs and Mayans long before the Catholics from Spain invaded?

Never heard of those facts. The spanish did not want any one to know that the Mayans were an advanced civilization. This negative thinking gave them the right to destroy the Mayan people.
