Anthropomorphism in religion and mythology
In religion and mythology, Anthropomorphism is the perception of a divine being or beings in human form, or the recognition of human qualities in these beings.
Ancient mythologies frequently represented the divine as deities with human forms and qualities. They resemble human beings not only in appearance and personality; they exhibited many human behaviours that were used to explain natural phenomena, creation, and historical events.
The deities fell in love, married, had children, fought battles, wielded weapons, and rode horses and chariots. They feasted on special foods, and sometimes required sacrifices of food, beverage, and sacred objects to be made by human beings.
Some Anthropomorphic deities represented specific human concepts, such as love, war, fertility, beauty, or the seasons. Anthropomorphic deities exhibited human qualities such as beauty, wisdom, and power, and sometimes human weaknesses such as greed, and anger.
Greek deities such as Zeus and Apollo often were depicted in human form, exhibiting both commendable and despicable human traits. From the perspective of adherents to religions in which humans were created in the form of the divine, the phenomenon may be considered, Theomorphism or the giving of divine qualities to humans. Anthropomorphism has cropped up as a Christian Heresy, particularly prominently with the Audians in third century Syria, but also in fourth century Egypt and tenth century Italy.

This is disturbing but it has to be documented. This a discarded carcus of something with all of the blood drained out of it and completely skinned, yet left to rot. An animal would never be able to do this and if it could, it would certainly not waste a fairly large meal. There are underground caverns in this area as well as signs of Satantic activity.
