“We could solve American homelessness easier than you think. On average, there are over 17,000,000 vacant homes in America at any given time. Meanwhile, according to EndHomelessness.org, there are roughly half a million homeless people in the states. We have enough vacant homes to give each homeless person several homes.”

Aztec priests believed that the tears of children could stop droughts.

Aztec followers believed in the power of human sacrifice, and many of their rituals included sacrificing women and children to serve their sun god, Huitzilopochtli. When they experienced drought, Aztec priests sacrificed children because they believed their tears could call on the rain.


The Church Of Bones

In the Czech Republic, there is a church called The Sedlec Ossuary that has decorations made entirely of human bones. This happened because there were too many people in the cemetery to bury everyone, and the church leaders claimed that if their bones became part of the church, it only made them closer to God. Nice propaganda spin there, guys.

 If the sun exploded right now, you wouldn’t know about it for another eight minutes.
