Atheists, why is the Yanomami tribe considered the most violent people on earth? They do not have Christianity there? Hmm.?

The Yanomamis are an ethnic group composed of 20,000 to 30,000 indigenous people who live in the rainforest. The live pretty much shut off from the rest of the world

--The Yanomami have a haughty and warlike character,[4] and when they kill they acquire the social status of unokai. The more warlike ones, who manage to kill more enemies, have greater prestige and more women.

--Mothers either welcome her newborn or kills the baby by burying them alive. Infanticide is practiced to eliminate children born with defects, or as a form of sex selection

--One of the most primitive customs of this ethnic group is the practice of ritual cannibalism: in a collective and sacred ritual funeral, they incinerate the corpse of a dead relative and eat the ashes of their bones, mixing them with “pijiguao” paste

Update 2:

I thought atheists said we could be good without God?

    they aren't atheist either. The Yanomami people traditionally practice animism as their religion. Animism is the belief that plants, inanimate objects, and natural phenomena have living souls. To the Yanomami the forest is not only composed of plant and animal life, but of spiritual life as well.

    When the Crusaders invaded a city, they raped, pillaged, burned, eviscerated and did things to the conquered peoples that would make you pee your pants just to think about them. They did this despite being Christian. In fact, they did these things IN THE NAME OF Christianity. So please, you total a s s, what do you imagine your point is?

    No wonder why they wouldn’t tell me what their secret recipe for pijiguao paste was when I had a picnic with them.

      In your opinion, a s s, which is worth absolutely nothing.

    I have no idea if they even are. But they don't have Islam either, do they? Hmm. And if you think there is no history of violence in the name of Christianity, you just aren't paying attention, and are willfully ignorant of reality.

    The Christian god is supposed to be omnipotent. Can't he do something about these people? He did lots of stuff in the book.

    "Atheists, why is the Yanomami tribe considered the most violent people on earth?"

    Because they are?

    Is this a trick question?

    They do not have Buddhism there?

    Apparently.

    "Hmm.?"

    So what is your question?

    The Hollywood movies tend to portray native peoples as "caring nature lovers" but in truth they have always been pretty savage. The Christians did the right thing in the New World.
