I agree that humans are humans, ie evil; that's the premise of Christianity. Let's divide the slaughter between Christian involvement and no Christian involvement:

Non Christian:

USSR: Stalin's regime (incl. WW2-era atrocities) 20,000,000 (This doesn't seem to include the Ukranian political famine, which was 6-15 million by itself.)

First World War (incl. Armenian massacres 1-2 million) (WW I by itself could be considered a "Christian" war).

Holocaust: 6,000,000 various unwanted, mostly Jews.

Russian Civil War 8,800,000

China: Warlord & Nationalist Era 4,000,000

Congo Free State 3,000,000

Chinese Civil War 2,500,000

Second Sudanese Civil War 1,700,000

Congolese Civil War 1998- 14 1,650,000

Cambodia: Khmer Rouge Regime 1975-79 15 1,400,000

Afghanistan: Civil War 1980- 15 1,400,000

Ethiopian Civil Wars 1962-92 17 1,250,000

East Pakistan: Massacres 1971 19 1,000,000

Iran-Iraq War 1980-88 19 1,000,000

Nigeria: Biafran revolt 1967-70 21 800,000

Mozambique: Civil War 1976-92 21 800,000

Rwandan Massacres 1994 23 650,000

First Indochina War 1945-54 25 500,000

India-Pakistan Partition 1947 25 500,000

Indonesia: Massacre of Communists 1965-67 25 500,000

Angolan Civil War 1975-94 25 500,000

First Sudanese Civil War 1955-72 25 500,000

Decline of the Amazonian Indians 1900-99 30 365,000

Somalia: Civil War 1991- ? Unknown

North Korea: Communist Regime 1948-

Christian nation involvement

WW I - 15,000,000 I think the Christian nations must bear the blame for this one.

Korean War The North attacked the south and the world came to its defense.

2nd Indochina War (incl. Laos & Cambodia)

German Expulsions after WW2 I'm not familiar with this--were 1.7 million Germans killed?

Mexican Revolution 1910-20 18 1,250,000

French-Algerian War 1954-62 24 600,000

Spanish Civil War 1936-39 31 350,000

Conclusions: people are evil. Christianity seems to mitigate some of it. The death total and incident total seems less for the Christian nations.
