Thomas, you are correct in stating that WWI and WWII
were the most destructive in absolute numbers of people killed and had little to do with religion. Although as A.C. Grayling states Nazism and Communism used the same methods. I do however wonder about the percentage of population killed by religious wars in comparison to these global conflicts. Also what horrors would have entailed with a mix of Crusader fervour and 20th Century weaponry.
