    the decimation of Indians in the Americas back in the middle ages was pretty bad, It wasn't all intentional but still 25 million down to 1 million in a century is pretty bad.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    Hmm, another catagory, deaths per day/week/year/whatever?

    Its good that these things are discussed, in my day the term "murdering christian bastards".. would never be used...
    Today, both the christians and the muslims must be tolerant..

    Yes, it's one of the largest exterminations of a people in history -- it's a damn shame that its 'thunder', if you will, is stolen by more recent atrocities.

    Still, two of the ten men on the list (Hernan Cortes and Andrew Jackson) were perpetrators of the genocide of that same ethnic group, so I should think it's not under-represented.

    I think people are hesitating to vote for Andrew Jackson, to be honest, just due to the fact that Americans hate admitting that they've committed genocides like the rest of us.

    It really depends on how you count it. If you go by an absolute number, it's most likely Stalin. However, if you compare the number of people each of these people killed to the population of the earth at the time, I would argue that Genghis Khan would beat them all by far.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    And you clearly have absolutely no idea of what you're talking about, you have lost any and all credibility, first of all the Muslims went to war with eachother since the begining of their religion (Shia-Sunni split) they were not tolerant of other religions whatsoever in fact Mohammad himself conducted ethnic cleansing and genocide against the Jewish Banu tribes of the Arabian Peninsula , the conducted the single largest intentional genocide until Hitler and Stalin which they perpetrated against the Hindu and Buddhists of the Indian Subcontinent. This "tolerance" of other religions only applied to the monotheistic religions of Christianity and Judaism, and this tolerance came in the form of centuries of conquest pogroms, ethnic cleansing, forced conversions, etc and if they managed to make it through all that they were allowed to live as third class dhimmi's.

    Seriously spare me your apologetic west = bad, east = good BS, organized religion = bad, and Islam = even worse than Christianity.

    Hell, where do you think Hitler got the idea for the concentration camps? We're just pissed that the Germans stole our idea... and were better at it.

    Stalin in terms of numbers

    but Hitler started a war that killed even more than Stalin

    THe "Christian Kings" of Europe launched the crusades. The crusaders brought to europe the black plague

    Shaka Zulu displaced a fourth of the sub saharan african population

    I voted for Stalin though. His early support of Hitler sealed it for me combined with the millions he killed in the USSR

    if you want to pick someone whose Ideas caused the most death its clearly Karl Marx but Jesus might be seen as a close second even though his teachings had nothing to do with the disgusting genocides carried out in His name
