    In ancient times, it was a popular form of murder to stab the enemy through the heart. Theories say that even Jesus Christ died in a heart injury caused by a fall with the cross breaking a rib. But why is heart stabbing never used today? What is the problem with heart injury for death? It is not even used in movies.

    because back then, they did not have guns-----gunshot to the head is easier. It is not easy to stab RIGHT in the heart---the
    sternum gets in the way or a rib. YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING----now go home and. practice.
    Broken rib almost never PIERCES the heart----more likely to get the liver or the spleen. Jesus died of shock-----(that means his blood pressure bottomed out). Effective killing
    methods with a knife are the slit throat method -----as prescribed in the koran-----OR stick the knife right under the
    costal chondral angle--and slant up and slice thru the
    liver-----the victim bleeds out quickly (<<< not advice---just
    intellectualizing). If all else fails-----the koran says throw the
    person off a HIGH MINARET. (the foregoing is NOT professional advice)

    how would you know without an autopsy----a shot in the chest is not likely to pierce the heart----the heart is kinda small
