What would aliens think, if they came long after we're gone, and in their archaeological digs they find loads of little metal crosses depicting what appears to be a human nailed to a cross?
Wouldn't they logically assume, without surviving books or other evidence, that this was some widespread sacrificial practice and we were complete barbarians? (that's if they don't assume its a sexual practice).
