The Las Vegas Strip’s Most Obscure Casino

Vegas Rex pays a visit to the Aztec:

I really could not speak to the cocktail service as the lone cocktail waitress in the establishment was vacuuming the floor during my visit. Don’t laugh, it’s a big floor. At the Aztec, job titles are fairly fluid. Why hire a separate cocktail waitress and janitor when you can get a 2-for-1.

The Stratosphere is only 20 yards away from the Aztec, and offers better odds, better drink service, and … well, better everything. As does the Sahara another 200 yards to the South.

Therefore, the question begs to be asked:

Why does this place exist?

Daily Dose of Ingersoll

Admitting that Moses was the author of the Pentateuch, or that
he gave to the Jews a religion, the question arises as to where he
obtained his information. We are told by the theologians that he
received his knowledge from God, and that every word he wrote was
and is the exact truth. It is admitted at the same time that he was
an adopted son of Pharaoh’s daughter, and enjoyed the rank and
privilege of a prince. Under such circumstances, he must have been
well acquainted with the literature, philosophy and religion of the
Egyptians, and must have known what they believed and taught as to
the creation of the world.

Now, if the account of the origin of this earth as given by
Moses is substantially like that given by the Egyptians, then we
must conclude that he learned it from them. Should we imagine that
he was divinely inspired because he gave to the Jews what the
Egyptians had given him?

The Egyptian priests taught first, that a god created the
“original matter” leaving it in a state of chaos; second, that a
god molded it into from; third, that the breath of a god moved upon
the face of the deep; fourth, that a god created simply by saying
“Let it be;” fifth, that a god created light before the sun

Nothing can be clearer than that Moses received from the
Egyptians the principal parts of his narrative, making such changes
and additions as were necessary to satisfy the peculiar
superstitions of his own people.
