How is this "edgy"?

Almost everyone believes killing over religion is stupid.

Not to mention that literally every major religion in the world bans the killing of humans (and some even ban the killing of plants and/or animals)...

No they happen and are hidden behind religion. e.g. the crusades.

Not in recent history. This point is also a bit moot since there haven't even been that many wars in recent history. The last wars to cause more than 5 million casualties were WW1 and WW2, neither of which were inspired by religion.

In fact, perhaps the bloodiest events in world history since the world wars were the mass killings that happened under Atheist regimes like the soviet union, PRC, and DPRK.

In their recently published book, “Encyclopedia of Wars,” authors Charles Phillips and Alan Axelrod document the history of recorded warfare, and from their list of 1763 wars only 123 have been classified to involve a religious cause, accounting for less than 7 percent of all wars and less than 2 percent of all people

It is still seven percent. A lot dead. Without religion, more would live and I wouldn't have people telling me to kill myself and try and beat me up every day I go to school.

"Virtually", still completely wrong.

This is very counterintuitive since as I said, the main reason killing other humans is such a universal taboo is that basically every religion for thousands of years has forbidden it.

I don't think bullies care much about theology. Hell, most of them probably wouldn't pull up a bible or quran and lay a prayer before hitting you and then saying "Oh, merciful god, I offer to you five slaps, two punches and a wedgie on this sacrificial nerd!". Religion has nothing to do with your bullying, it's entirely two people's fault: yours, and the bully's.

Furthermore, you're in that try-hard-to-be-right era of your life in which you think you're right no matter how wrong you are, assuming by the clues you gave us about your age and your facebook profile. Essentially the same age as good 'ol Kalin and Paugers. I've been there, hit me when I was 15.

Also, "virtually every other war" assumes like 80%+ at least, so the fact it's only 7% is very different from what you said. And that's in absolute war total, pull up kill counts on these wars and most of it religion is uninvolved.

Biggest population decreases during wars:

1) WW2 - empires fighting over influence expansion (and vengeance)
2) Three Kingdoms Era - autonomour provinces of a falling empire dishing it out
3) WW1 - empires fighting over influence expansion
4) Taiping rebellion - autonomy-requesting rebels

Uh, uh, I think you're forgetting that Hsiuchuan thought he was Jesus's brother and thought that the Manchus were devils - this whole thing was thought up when Hsiuchuan was sick and sad and read a Holy Writ that a Protestant priest gave him. The Heavenly Kingdom was a Christian country - Confucianism, Buddhism, and Folkfaith were banned. And this is 3rd bloodiest. However:

10 bloodiest deathbringers:

1: Mongol Wars
2: Second World War
3: Taiping War (faith-started)
4: Three Kingdoms' War
5: Black Illness
6: European-American wars
7: Ming's End
8: An Lushan's Revolt
9: First World War
10: Dzungar Revolt
