When Archaeologists Unearthed This Aztec Temple, They Discovered Something Truly Horrifying

Please do not forget to visit the site http://scribol.com Subscribe to our channel: https://goo.gl/Z4nZcg ************************************************************** Built by Spanish colonialists, Mexico City was actually constructed right on the ruins of the ancient Aztec city of Tenochtitlan. The whole city, including the Great Pyramid of Tenochtitlan, was destroyed by the Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes during his conquest of the Aztec empire. As a result, beneath the modern city lies a rich treasure trove of archaeological remains. Various excavations have subsequently been conducted under the modern city, and an especially exciting find was announced in June 2017. The discovery was located in a side alley near the Metropolitan Cathedral of the Assumption of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven, which was built by the Spanish and dates back to the 16th century. ---------------------------------------------------------- ►Article link: https://goo.gl/vd1x6A ---------------------------------------------------------- The site, just off Mexico City’s main square, the Zocalo, is actually under what was formerly a 1940s hotel. That building was destroyed in the devastating earthquake of 1985, which killed at least 5,000 people. And after the destruction of the hotel, the owners spotted ancient remains and alerted the authorities. What archaeologists had discovered were, in fact, the remains of an Aztec temple and ball court. The locations would have been used for both religious ceremonies and sporting events, and the temple itself still retains its semi-circular form. Originally some 110 feet across and 13 feet high, the impressive religious structure was built from around 1485 to 1580 during the pre-colonial era. ************************************************************** ►You can support the channel: PATREON https://goo.gl/KtaKrp ►Image credits: https://goo.gl/vd1x6A ►web: http://watchjojo.com ► SUBSCRIBE US: https://goo.gl/Z4nZcg ► Follow Us On Google Plus: https://goo.gl/JYf9Rr ► Like us Our Facebook Page: https://goo.gl/C5Rv92 ► Follow On Twitter: https://goo.gl/PZ2U1R ►For more articles visit: http://scribol.com #watchjojo

Don't you think it's odd, when christiandom conquered the Aztecs. They built Church's, on top of the Aztecs religious centers. To express dominance over conquered domain. Now christiandom is in an uproar about Islam doing the same thing. In fact the holy Roman empire, now called the Roman Catholic Church. The Vatican has been intact from then till now. Here's the kicker, the Vatican itself is the founders of Islam. They, schooled and trained Mohammed to be a prophet of the new religion. In exchange, Muhammad was tasked with keeping trade route's open. Then later, axed the deal in favor of conquest. Any way a bit off track there. Was wanting to talk about the purpose of the Ball Court. There were many provenances to the Aztec kingdom. City States if you will. What they call sacrifice rituals was merely an honorable form of population control. I feel compelled to explain. All war fare, at least in the past. Was the sole proprietor of population control. 🐻 with me, simple economics of supply and demand. When faced with food shortage the only option is to take from the neighbors by force. This method causing massive casualty to both provincial States. Weakened both sides to bare survival. With defense weakened, this invites a hostile take over from surrounding enemy tribes which were not part of the kingdom. So a ceremonial sporting event was devised. True, it was considered a sacrifice. It however was not a sacrifice to deity's. Instead it was considered a personal sacrifice, to ensure that the kingdom lived with in it's means. To the loosing sides, it was considered to be the highest honor to forfeit your own life. For the security for the one's you loved. In this way, it allotted for over all prosperity, while maintaining a strong defensive capacity to maintain the society. I apologise to those who are offended from my remarks.

I hate that everything is classified as a religous thing when they dont know why or what. Hmm a thousand years from now they did up a 1940s TV what is this? Because family's gathered around it then its religous.haha Just like today things were built just because .cosmetics or comfort more than religous.

God of the "wind"! Sounds familiar? In almost all New and Old Testament scripts, "wind" has always been present. However, it is always translated as "soul", "spirit", etc etc. In Genesis, if translated literally without any distortion by any translators, it says "the wind of elohim fluttering on the surfaces of waters."

to compare the witch hunts to the human scrifice is just overboard. There is so much effort put out to denigrate European civilization. It is racism pure and simply whether it is self inflicted or not. But it is something to note that people can not talk about these peoples without comparing them to the Europeans, show what culture dominates. Also, in the video they make a great deal out of how the Hotel owners have to pay for the dig. That is unfair to some one who employs people. If it is the cultural heritage of all Mexicans should not all Mexicans pay for it. It will do not economic good for a business that happens to be on a site to pay for it. If I were a hotel owner and someone found artifacts on my property and I knew it would harm my business the artifacts would get destroyed. That they make the business pay for it sets a bad example. But then look at the history of that nations economics. Dreaming of the past should not impend the business of the future. Those barbaric sacrifices are still damaging people (the hotel owners and workers) except for the socialist/archeologists.

The annoying music was so loud it made it hard to understand what was being said. Why do so many of the video clips on here have such annoying music playing​ on endless repeat drowning out what is being said about the video clips? When that music starts I don't finish watching them anymore.

Yes, Native American empires in Mexico and further South were just as bad as murderous European empires. Am I right in thinking that North American natives did not practice human sacrifice?

If European people want to start trading stories OF death AND killing I don't think the meso Americans would win. We don't know what the real situation was for those deaths. AND the way this is communicated is a white supremacist manner. So native American cultures can feel lucky that Spanish conquers murdered millions

The Amer-Indians civilizations were the most bloody of all ancient civilizations when it came to religious worship. Almost all ancient civilizations would occasionally perform human sacrifices in extreme situations as a last resort or as in the sacred kings of Europe but no cultures worshiped death and made murder as common as dirt like the Americas. Not even the Romans in their funeral games that morphed into the gladiatorial games came even close to the brutality of the slaughter of innocent life as happened in the Americas.

Fucked up Mexicans thinking human sacrifice was going to bless thier city so stupid
J. Josue (7 months ago)
Of course, but when Anglos and Europeans killed Native Americans in acts of genocide in the name of European expansion and slavery it was somehow so humane and civilized. right? of course not. Human sacrifice in Mexico was vile, wicked and Satanic, but what Europeans did to Native Americans across the continent was also vile, wicked, and Satanic, but in some ways worse, because Europeans had the Bible, and the example of Jesus Christ but Europeans were just as godless, if not more godless, then the pagan Natives because the Europeans should have known better, but instead they were often worse then the Indians. I am a Christian by the way, and I know Jesus as my Savior and Lord, but Unfortunately too many people have misused His name for evil. Take Care, God bless.

+Hemington Farnsworth Beauregard the Third Your truly an idiot! Not worth the energy to debate!
John Ferguson I haven't said a word about Trump, so you're clearly delusional. Abortion literally cannot be murder because the fetus depends on the pregnant woman's body to survive. That would be like if you hooked yourself up to my kidneys because you'd die without it, and then me choosing to disconnect you from my body. A fetus has precisely the same right to use the body of a woman as you do to use my kidneys. You can't force me to allow you to use my kidneys, and you can't force a woman to remain pregnant against her will. Please, sir, get an education. Logic does not have a liberal bias. Reality does, but logic is 100% free from political bias.

+Hemington Farnsworth Beauregard the Third You are one screwed up Radical Progressive Liberal Democratic! Just eaten up with Trump Derangment Syndrome! Abortion is murder, plain and simple!

The Spanish were responsible for many crimes against humanity back in the times of the conquistador and armada, all In the search for gold. Slavery! that was a middle eastern thing from way before this, they traded in all races but were fond of blonde women in particular. The founding fathers who went to America were not the first Europeans to make contact with the indigenous American Indians, several tribes of Indians had old pieces of Spanish armour from way before the colonial Europeans landed.

Indeed! Also is in the Aztecs relics found a representation of the Aztec Emperor to be like the color of the Sun meaning he was taller, stronger muscle built and blonde with blue eyes for this reason they used to believe he was a god because of his golden appearance so I believe they were visitor before Cortez.
