Wow emoticon So GUESS how the Nahuas translated the Catholic concepts of ‘devil’ and ‘evil’?

Guess The answer: For the Aztecs the world was in essence cualli (‘good’). To cope with the foreign idea of evil they had to resort to calling it amo cualli (‘not good’)! As for the notion of ‘eternal damnation’, they must have asked ‘What the hell is that...?’!
