The Atahualping Challenge is the coolest new social media trend

When the Spaniards met the Inca emperor Atahualpa, they showed him a Bible. Legend has it that Atahualpa tossed it away like it was nothing. Today people in Peru are reenacting this. It's a really creative and awesome way for them to support indigenous resistance.

Of course, there are stupid people that are overly offended by this. It's just a historical reenactment though :D . It's also rejecting religious indoctrination, promoting indigenous resistance, and raising awareness of the fact that the Spaniards used religion as an excuse to kill thousands of people. Just because people may get offended by this doesn't mean it's bad. Seeing this social media trend actually made my day and I thought it was the coolest thing ever, some of my Christian friends even said the same. If you're a follower of this blog, chances are you will probably agree with me and think this is awesome as well. 

Well, have a nice day fellow wannabe historians ;D
