Many people find their human sacrifice repulsive and barbaric. Also, they conquered many places, and ruled others through fear and oppression, which ended up being part of their downfall. However, many ancient civilizations had their own atrocities.

The Aztecs and the Mayan both used human sacrifices. To say that "people dislike" the Aztecs is not logical. Every major historical society was filled with various atrocities. For example, ancient Rome held the gladiator games.
