I'll rexplain a bit of my post-
the killer is a human and i'm a bit unhappy that this post has been moved from faith and spirituality(this will make sense once I reveal the answer)

Hmmm...so are we also talking about people responsible for military or wartime actions?

Serial killers?

Mass murderers?


It's a bit of an ambiguous question....

Please..don't say "God" or "Jesus", either

No one single reason has ever killed more in the HISTORY of mankind more than RELIGION.

Religion has ended more HUMAN life than any other single cause.

Now, go to church and read about love, peace and happiness...

Yup. More people have been killed in the name of religion than probably anything else. Other than perhaps malaria.

But if it's ok with you, I'd rather stay home and read about peace, love and happiness. I don't need a church to teach me those things


Didn't the original poster imply that it was a person, though? (as opposed to a group, or religion?)

History's biggest Killer(s)

- Communism; 150 million DEAD
- The Plague; some 35 million DEAD

One word: religion.
No way of getting an accurate figure though, but it definately makes communism look like a single murder.

Edit:Oh...it's already been said...
*slinks off*

Actually it was pointed out on QI the other day (it was a repeat) that the Mosquito has been responsible for the deaths of 50% of all humans who have ever lived, that even beats religion!

As for a person, I dunno, Joe Stalin????
