Not the same[edit]

Cihuateteo is not the same that Civateteo, because the first was highly worshipped and the second are white vampires, more info es:Cihuateteo and es:Civatateo

This cannot be true and I am fairly sure that the "vampires" are a hoax. Cigvateteo and cihuateteo is the same word in nahuatl only spelled in different ways. There is no way the aztecs can have distinguished between "civateteo" and "cihuateteo" it is the same word simply. Also there are no references to either of these articles, but "cihuateteo" I have read about in many books on aztec mythology whereas the vampires I have never encountered. Please provide some kind of reference from a reliable sourcebefore removing the merge tag again. Maunus 19:36, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
Vampire does seem to be a little hoaxy. Replace the word vampire with "spirit" and the articles cover the exact same thing. Radagast83 02:26, 29 October 2006 (UTC)
