Im not that interested in what different religions instruct for their followers. We can debate what the translations and interpretations of Islamic Koran, Christian New Testament, Jewish Talmud and Old Testament, Krishnas Bhagavad Gita, Taoisms Tao-te-ching, the Veda of Hinduism, and The Analects and Five Classics of Confucianism really mean on other threads. For example, it is clear that Islam (whether it is a religion that advocate peace or violence) has a very violent history and very violent followers. Christianity has a violent past with such examples as the Spanish Inquisition, Salem Witch Trials, etc. There are violent people and sub-groups within the Christian religion today (misguided as they may be). The Jews have their history of violence. Just read through the Old Testament for a history of war and violence. Anyway, back to my question. I think that the clearest and best way for me to pose my question is as follows: What is the most peaceful religion in that it has the fewest per capita followers prone to violence or advocating violence against other people?
