This is not to say the Indians were any better or worse, I really don't know if everything said about them in this article is true, it's very difficult to know how they used to live when all of the evidence has been destroyed.
The West was not always as civilized as it is today, Columbus was a man of his time.
I celebrate the discovery of America, and the promise it's held for the world, but I don't celebrate Christopher Columbus.
The Aztecs sacrificed (read murdered) 40,000 Indians of subjugated tribes every year.

This small statement puts a lot of things into perspective.
The times, they may be a changin' but human nature remains the same.
"All" the evidence? To take just one case - what about the human sacrifice practiced by the Mayans or was it the Aztecs? Oh, let me guess, like the Holocaust, I bet that never happened either? Revisionism is so boring.
