Animal Sacrifices

Among the amazing claims that come up during discussions is the idea that if we didn't have the Bible around, we wouldn't have a clue how to operate in the world.  I write a brief new essay that addresses animal sacrifice. It's astounding to me when Christians and other presentday monotheists look at the beliefs of animist or other religions that sacrifice animals to the gods as though they hold more primitive religious beliefs. The entire basis for Christianity and at least the earlier parts of Judaism is animal sacrifice. In Christianity, especially, Jesus is supposedly the animal sacrifice to end all animal sacrifices.

Anyway, I write how I would attempt to bring to life at least partially, what modern day Christians want us to think about the earlier priests of Judaism in the post: Animal Sacrifices.

All feedback is welcome.
