  1. The visionary creator of the Third Floor died just over a week before it was closed: https://www.change.org/p/save-the-third-floor-of-the-royal-bc-museum/u/30040740 4 days later, rather than acknowledging his death, the museum ironically chose to post this about the Old Town just a few days before they closed it: https://publish.twitter.com/?query=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2FRoyalBCMuseum%2Fstatus%2F1475149452235190278&widget=Tweet
  2. Who were witch burnings for, but god and his will? Human sacrifice was also often used to punish those who were sacrificed. It qualifies. If it looks like a duck and it quacks like a duck it most probably is a duck. Witch burnings are human sacrifice.
  3. The google definition of sacrifice: "an act of slaughtering an animal or person or surrendering a possession as an offering to God or to a divine or supernatural figure." Witch burnings would qualify.
  4. What is the death penalty applied for crimes that weren't committed but human sacrifice? Are you familiar with the ancient concept of a scapegoat?
  5. Yzermandius burning witches at the stake is clearly human sacrifice. "some religions are clearly better than others " How so?
  6. " "you not being able to tell the difference between apples and oranges doesn't mean there is no difference" - Yzermandius How is it apples and oranges? It is human sacrifice and human sacrifice. The only difference is the stated reason.
  7. There was a lot of human sacrifice in Christianity e.g. witch burnings.
  8. Ah OK found it now. You still actually didn't answer the question there. I asked you what you found that was a lower level of morality and you simply reiterated that it was lower without saying what it was that was actually lower. I think it would be worth it to you to read Jaspers' work.
  9. "I answered your other question " Do you mind quoting your answer? I must have missed it.
  10. "This is the first I've heard about the term." - Blackbird It comes from Jaspers' The Origin and Goal of History, a good albeit brief book, I wish he had elaborated more in it.
  11. Yzermandius I asked you the following question twice, and so far you have not answered: Why do you find axial and post axial religions to be a cut above the pre-axial age and have you read Jaspers?
