The gods édenistes never asked for child sacrifice …
The Bible in the book of Jeremiah confirms:
They built the high places of Baal, to burn their sons in the fire as burnt offerings to Baal, that I had neither ordered nor prescribed, which does not come to me was the thought
Jeremiah 19/5
The Bible states that these ceremonies where children were burned in tophets was happening …

Tanit, Astarte of Carthage, has been extensively described by Gustave Flaubert in Salammbo
The Phoenician colony became independent in 480 BC
The worship of Baal and Astarte became the worship of Baal-Hammon and Tanit, day and night, sun and moon …
Human sacrifice organized by priests became independent, and thus affirming the independence ceremony became a common …
This terrifying cult lasted until the destruction of Carthage by Scipio in 146 Emilien, ending the 3 rd Punic War …
Diodorus tells us in his world history …
Domination of the Mediterranean Sea by Carthage, was quickly challenged by the rising powers of the Greek and the Roman Empire …
This led to wars of Sicily, against the Greeks finally won by Carthage and the Punic Wars against the Romans …

They are tired of waiting for their pay, that Carthage did not intend to pay them, saying that although they had emerged victorious battles against the Romans, they had to abandon their Sicily …
Sicily, island rich, good value, and more strategic dominance in the Mediterranean sea …
It should be remembered that at that time, the balance was provided by the booty …
and this will continue until the wars of the 19th century …
They had no reason to pay …
The mercenaries, led by Matho, managed to take the first of three speakers in the city ….
They put out the pipes of the aqueduct which supplied the city with drinking water …
But rather than pay the balance, the council of elders decided to remake a great moloch


Each family of Carthage, not only the nobles, had to deliver a child for sacrifice …
The next day, the crowd came to mass in the square before the temple of Baal …
