Spartans were fairly rough.

Huns were pretty rough, too.

There's really patches of savage cultures everywhere.

I wouldn't call primitive and savage the same thing, though.

It depends on what you mean by savage
Some of my ancestors thought killing kids would make it rain but this was considered barbaric by the Spanish conquistadors.
Later the same Spanish enslaved and did great crimes against the native population of Mexico.

Hmm for me it's a tie between Aztacs and Spartans I bet there's worse but I can't remember what

Well not sure about most primitive but for brutal I'd say the Aztecs or the Mongols. Aztecs for obvious reasons of invading and kidnapping villagers of other tribes for human sacrifice among other acts and Mongols because well uh just take a look at the link below.

The Aztec people though didn't of themselves as savages. They thought that without human sacrifices the world would end. It was a necessity to them.

You really love to post topics that ask questions like they're from a school test.

Also I don't know.

I'd argue the majority of human brutality was justified in the mind of the perpetrators. Also I wouldn't call Aztecs savage I'd call them brutal. They had superior technology at the time in juxtaposition to any of their counterparts.

The Mongols were by far the most savage.

Also, if you've ever read Eaters of the Dead, by Michael Crichton (Made into the movie The 13th Warrior) it is supposedly based off of a true account.

If this is the case then that true account suggests that some neanderthals were still living at the same time as Homo Sapien... and that there were conflicts between them and the Vikings at some point.

Supposing this is all true, and that you are including all species of mankind.... them... the Eaters of the Dead were the worst.


Unfortunately... the "true account" was completely fictional.

I don't really care about Aztecs or Mongols. To me, nothing can topple the barbarity that Christian civilizations practiced for over a thousand years; what they did, not only to other civilizations, but to their own, citizens, family members, flesh and blood, and for what, a self-righteous quest for immortality, or for an audience with- or a seat next to a figment of their imagination. The shit that Christians did is uncontested. And these guys amusingly enough called other civilizations savages, while they scourged through the planet, faster than the bubonic plague.

I read about Genghis Khan a long time ago, and his regime was brutal, their body count immense, but I cannot for the life of me change my mind about Christians. The Christian body count is far higher, and their methods far worse. They were far worse than any religious based civilization that has ever been. They were far worse than any totalitarian regime known to man. They were far worse than the Aztecs, the Mongols, anyone and everyone. Decapitation? Burning? That was far from the worst they did, and it was far from a fraction of the methods they devised to torture and kill innocent people. I mean, these guys would rip people apart at their limbs. They would tie up families and drown them together. They would pour hot lead into women's wombs. POUR HOT LEAD INTO WOMEN'S WOMBS. First, they invented hell, and then, they created hell on Earth. Christians were, and to a degree still is, the devil, the pure evil that they sought to drive out from existence.

For over a thousand years.

I am going to go with the general Caucasian population. No one else holds a candle to their cruelty and capacity for greed. I mean they tried to conquer the damn world through military might, economic might, and more horrific methods including crude biological warfare. They preformed genocide on the populations of the land mass known as North America, turned the peoples of Africa into a freaking trading commodity, forced Asian cultures like the Japanese to open up their borders.

I mean just look at the breadth of history savage doesn't even begin to describe what the Caucasian civilization has done in the past. Or is still doing really, after all they allow white supremacy groups like the KKK and Neo-Nazis to operate openly.
