Real Hunter Gatherer life-style

These images can be seen as a bit strong, when seen from the perspective of modern society, but this is a true hunter-gatherer community. Presumably the children have some defects, so the father buries them alive. In reality this amounts to natural selection, something that we did away with, with the introduction of agriculture, however I am certainly not going to advocate burying children alive.

  1. Wow, I'd heard about this practice with newborns, but not kids of that age.

    And people say abortion is inhumane.

  2. yep, it seems cruel doing it to children that age, but I guess certain disabilities become visible later in childhood.
