    Bram, I question whether your assertion is plausible. According to that logic, Russia, China and Cuba should be paradises on earth as they believed in socialism/communism("each to his ability, each to his need"). Yet millions were killed by this godless regimes. Clearly, while your claim that these monothestic religions have killed many is correct, my counterclaim that godless regimes and indeed everyone else has done the same seems to be correct to me as well. I would argue that the difference is illustrated with the British Empire and India. For one example, the people of India were burning people for religious reasons until the British outlawed it due to religious reasons. Admittingly, one example is pretty useless. But I think this begins to show the trend that the monothestic religions ended up civilizing those with polythestic religions.
