Is the Bible More Violent than the Qu'ran?

Here. It's an excellent article to read, and I agree with the conclusion:

"In the end, the scholars can agree on one thing: The DNA of early Judaism, Christianity and Islam code for a lot of violence. Whether they can evolve out of it is another thing altogether."

Another interesting thing is that historically Muslims are responsible for a paltry amount of death and violence as contrasted with Christianity and atheism. See here.

Hi Jon,

Yes, I'm sure that's true. After all, Christianity has existed for a longer period of time and has managed to be the dominant religion amongst a vastly larger population than Islam.

I really hate to be making that statement, as I don't want to seem like the stereotypical leftist who deplores Christianity while defending Islam. Nonetheless, Islam does seem to have a better track record than Christianity.

That being said, Islam is still an atrocious religion that the world would be better off without.
