Aztec Eagle warrior?  Cuts your heart out.
They wouldn't--the priests get to do that.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

No, they just took prisoners alive so they could be cruelly murdered.

This practice was what got their neighbors to team up with the conquistadors.

right--my only point was that the warriors did not cut out the hearts--priests did.

What part of MikeCL pointing out that priests did the rituals and not the warriors upset you to use "nazi"?

Nazi = grammar nazi ... not German Nazi.  A common dig on people who say ... your point is good but you did something trivial wrong.

Friend of mine is passionate about exploring cenotes. He retired recently and moved to Yucatan to do it full time. The Mexican government is working with him. He speaks Aztec.

What kinds of things are found in cenotes? I've come across them in fiction, but I know nothing of the real ones.



[edit]
Oh, I see! Pretty much what I didn't expect!

I can see why someone would be bonkers for the things, what beauty! Exploring such things would be awesome. But really, does he expect to find archeological evidence?

There is a hidden cenote beneath the main temple at Chichen Itza.  They aren't all open topped.
