That is where you are wrong. Most ancient cultures had their religion fully integrated with their lives. It would be impossible to gather to certain places on a regular basis so their religion would seem more akin to customs. Many stories in ancient myth offer sacrifices to a god, spirit, monster, dragon, or other supernatural deity. Overtime we separated these things based on religion, but old myths do include virgin sacrifices and do tie in with the religion. These stories aren’t as common now however as Christians tend to be pyromaniacs that believe fire solves problems. Why preserve things that make you think differently or have a different view point when you can burn them. They they destroyed millenia of culture in decades. You’ll also find accounts of this in many human societies so don’t limit yourself to western civilization and also look at prior civilizations. You’ll find plenty.
