[quote=“Pazuzu, post:11, topic:3904”]Look at all the societies that accepted human sacrifice, who are now gone. Just give it time. It will happen, like clockwork. No magic can protect a person indefinitely. Because magic is only opens a window of opportunity. Our behavioral pattern eventually catches up with us and you can’t stop what you’ve laid out.
Your outlook is unique,but remember that not all traditions who perform human sacrifice have or ever look like they’ll disappear anytime soon.Human sacrifice is practiced in Haiti and vodoun doesn’t look like its going to crumble anytime soon…but i could be entirely wrong too,just my take on this subject…[/quote]
At this very moment in time, you are correct! But fast forward a few years…who knows. I will say Haiti is neither known for being “rich” or “powerful” for either it’s citizen or politics. Per Wikipedia, it sure has a lot of natural disasters for it’s size. While we can say the US has it’s fair share of natural disaster, if you compare the size of it’s land it is equal to a small state. If you think about the areas hit by most natural disasters in America, you get the bible belt and Louisiana, which is known for it’s colorful beliefs…
I practice weather magic, so I am certain some disasters are natural…while others called upon by a spiritual force. I don’t need to sacrifice anyone…but I do wonder why those I have a strong dislike for on the news die. This is why I don’t watch the news. While I can’t solely take credit, I’m sure there is something going on in the collective consciousness. There was a great saying that “your one brain is not as smart as all our brains together.”
Now to my next point. If a spirit wants to work with you, it can kill anyone you believe deserves it, without you ever getting your hands dirty. Now that is a powerful spirit. It will not ask for a sacrifice, because it’s job is to serve you. You are always the master, remember that. Of course if it lands you in jail, telling you do to things… then you’ve been hoodwinked.
Remember the Boston bombers? I am very well aware there were a group of dabblers who were angry. And strangely enough one brother shot the other while dragging his body with a car. Moral of the story…don’t piss people off. And don’t be that guy, everybody stands against.
The only thing I can see human sacrifice might do for the psyche is that, the person might believe if they are capable of killing some innocent person, they are capable of anything. Unfortunately, that isn’t true. The person maybe capable of a sacrifice, conquering this one fear, but limited in his ability to see the future, future consequences, and finding profitable/advantageous solutions to a complex situation. Which is a whole different part of the brain than the animal instinct that it took to kill a person.
Of course, I, as anyone looking at a situation, I am of course limited in my perception.
