Default Fun fact about religiously motivated wars in the last 1400 years

Quote:
Over half of all religiously motivated wars have been in the last 1400 years, with Muslims groups being one or both parties involved.


1763 recorded wars
123 religious - (6.97%)
66 involving Islam - (3.74%)
57 not involving Islam - (3.23%)

This is simply an inarguable fact. I speculate that this is what happens when a religion has a warlord for a prophet.

A good old religious war wouldn't be the same without Muslim involvement. They know what they're doing.

There are lies and there's the Truth.

The Truth will always prevail.

And that's not the fundamental teaching. The fundamental teaching is "There is Only One God, to worship One God alone without any partners", according to Yusuf Estes. Regular prayers and charity being staples along with fasting and pilgrimage.


As for Nick, his actions and thoughts speak for themselves on Judgment Day.

I'm sorry. I cannot just ignore these facts. What is the reasoning for this by your estimate? Is it simple coincidence that over half of all religious wars in the past 1,400 involved Muslims?
