Did druids really sacrifice humans? If so did they consent? Or is this just a myth promoted by Romans to attack Celts? Where is the evidence?

I have read things from many different sources. Some say that the celts of the past did indeed practice human sacrifice, while others say the mere idea is blasphemous. Being a beginner and not privy to many ancient texts, I have to form my own opinion, as many of us do.

They may have practiced human sacrifice of some sort. However, many religions have done this in one form or another. Caesar couldn't have cared less if they did or didn't. They were a hindrance to the his idea of a Roman Empire. As such, they were killed. It bears no weight in todays druid revival whether or not our ancestors practiced human sacrifice. It is not a part of today's religion and never will be.

Were the Druids descendants of the ancient Phoenicians ??

The Phoenicians practiced such customs where-ever they settled and colonized.

Yes, humans were drained of blood and all liquid matter, which was filtered into quart containers and sold at the local Meade Shoppe.
It was known as "Druid Fluid".
