comment Why did the senate of Carthage not sent reinforcements to Hannibal in Italy?
@JuanAntonioGomezMoriano The Carthaginian navy was essentially wiped out in the First Punic war. By the time of the second, you had a situation where Carthage had a badass army, but Rome ruled the seas.

comment Has any culture primarily worshipped an evil deity?
@Rajib - That's the revisionist position. It is not universally accepted, the chief problem with it being the extensive documentation of the group that would have to be explained away. A better critique is that the relation to Kali was probably at best a foundation myth for the group. Most of the captured Thugs turned out to be Muslim, not Hindu. This was probably more in the nature of a biker gang calling themselves the "Hell's Angels".
