AnneM says,

"Would it suprise you that there were more killings done just in the last century by none other then communism, nazism then by any of the religions put together? Think about it."

Since Nazis and Communists did not exist before the 20th Century, that does not surprise me.

But, to compare apples with apples, you should start with the century when Islam began, namely the 7th.

Since that time, Muslim are directly responsible for about 350 million deaths.
