You don’t count the dead when God’s on your side

- Dylan
Humanity over the centuries whether it's extreme nationalists, violent revolutionaries with utopian ideals about creating "virtuous republics", "vanguards of the proletariat", extreme Marxist-Leninist revolutionaries with Machiavellian notions of ends justifying enormous, countless deaths via mass shootings, disease, neglect, torture, extermination of ethnic cultures, religious minorities over continental Europe due to distorted, hijacked quasi-scientific hack theories from Darwin's evolution through natural selection with phrenology, Social Darwinism's tooth and clue, inevitable perpetual clash of cultures and nations for resources, colonies and how it's natural and historically authentic.

Trying to disenfranchise, arrest, and extermination Europe's Jews, Roma Gypsies. Poles, Slavs, Russian POWS into concentration or death camps like Dachua, Buchenwald, Bergen-Belsen, Sorbibor, Auschwitz-Birkernau, Belzac because they didnt fit the Nazi racial ideal of the Aryan ubermensch, the Nordic, mythical Atlantean superhuman race that supposedly derived from Iceland-like supercontinent---The World Ice Theory.

Dylan had it half right, but humans dont necessarily need to use God or at all as a reason to count the dead or casualties in some genocidal conflict or "clash of civilizations". Humans, or mankind, increasingly over the past 150 years have found diabolically creative, insidious forms of inspirations or bastageized "legitimate" reasons to kill, rape, steal, loot, and exploit the lands, territories, cultures and nations for themselves without God or Allah being a reason.

Yep
Except those indigenous populations were unfortunately killing each other long before “we” arrived
Fear of “others” goes back a long way
Sadly
Sadly, yes. The three great Meso-American, pre-Columbian empires---Aztecs, Mayans, and the Inca---became powerful, large territorial vast states due to conquest, high-stakes geopolitical alliances via dynastic marriages, short-term treaties and Machivellian power politics to gain advantages over weaker, smaller regional tribes sometimes through economic or political subjugation--a Roman-styled client state like Herod the Great's Israel before Christ's birth, or downright conquest. The Inca themselves, for centuries before their rise, were small-to- moderately sized semi-nomadic tribes who specialized as mountain and sheep herders and were ruled by a previous South American indigenous dynasty called the Wahri, who's kingdom, many archeologists and anthropologists, believe was centered in modern-day Bolivia. The Wahri, curiously practiced a burial ritual for deceased monarchs that persisted for centuries that was similar to ancient Chinese Terracotta warriors---the recently deceased king would be mummified along with some of his elite warriors to guard his tomb and its treasures forever against tomb-raiding plunderers, akin to the ancient Egyptian Pharoahs and their treasures accrued over their lifetimes as protection from tomb robbers. The Inca eventually overthrew the declining Wahri by early-mid 15th century and adopted this same royal burial rituals so much so that it continues to be done---albeit to celebrate Catholic Virgin Mary on Eastern Sunday---is still carried on a procession route through the streets of Lima, Peru and most other Peruvian cities. I believe similar processions are also performed in cities in Bolivia and rural, remote regions of northern Chile.

It's long been argued and held by pre-Columbian historians and anthropologists that if Spanish and Portuguese conquistadors hadn't been able to rely on native indigenous tribes who sided with them as a way to overthrow Mayan/Aztec/Incan domination, the Spanish explorers, conquerors, and soldiers probably would've had a much harder, difficult time conquering completely those large empires even with sophisticated, more advanced weaponry. Just from a purely military logistical/tactical standpoint, the European explorers, settlers, invaders, or opportunists had too many practical, short-term or long-term advantages to use or exploit at their disposal to defeat all of three Meso-American Aztec, Mayan, and Incan empires.

That's not to say that if more Spanish, Portuguese, or European mercenaries hadn't come along later or been sent in to reinforce these incursions, they wouldn't have emerged victorious, but it would've been a longer, protracted struggle that could've lasted years and taken Spanish/Portuguese more time, resources, men and decent colonial administration to set up and efficiently build up, establish, and the infrastructure, cities, and proper geography to run colonial outposts.

FWIW, while the Roman invasion of Britain did occur in 43 CE, for the first 2 decades, most of the territory the assigned legions were able to conquer and subdue was the southeastern coast, parts of south-central England, bits and pieces of eastern England, and a large area in modern-day central Wales. Unfamiliarity with the terrain, difficulty for Roman soldiers, generals and settlers alike to adjust to a cold, rainy, inhospitable English climate, and the lack of understanding and respect for native Britons tribes cultures, beliefs, and deeming them to be incorrigble, uncultured savages led to numerous revolts and uprisings, the most famous, notable being Boudicca's Revolt in 60-61 CE. If the Roman legions had lost to Boudicca's forces at the Battle of 73 Watling Street, the Roman occupation of Britain would've ended then and there after only 17 years and even by Nero's time, some Roman's still questioned whether it was a good idea of Claudius to even invade or try to make Britain a colony. Even after Boudicca's Revolt was crushed and the Druidic priestly class was exterminated on the island of Mona, it took about another 40 years for Roman military to fully conquer most of what's now northern England and a few still argue they never fully conquered it and consolidated it. For quite a few young up-and-coming Italian Roman legionaries, hearing you're being sent to defend a frontier fort in northern England in early 2nd century C.E. probably would've felt like a terrifying, death sentence because of cold climate; native, inhospitable tribes who despise your very presence there, and the constant, daily fears of surprise attacks from tribes who would kill you and your buddies and overrun your forts(or limes as Romans called it.)

I dont see any articles from the Jewish, Budda, Christian, indian or even asian religions, where an individual will depict a picture of their god that results in someones death.
That is true, but if you look, you'll find acts around all religions that cause someone's death, just for different reasons and in different forms, like bride burning in India, which is rooted in Hinduism and the caste system, or (even though it mostly stopped after WWII, still not that long ago, and Shinto is kind of making a comeback) ritualistic suicide in old Japan for what we would consider the silliest of things, like the emperor, considered a god under Shinto, ordering you to kill yourself because you looked funny at him , or even because you looked at him.

i'm sure 2884 will weigh in, but my anecdotal understanding is that monotheisms and much more deadly than polytheisms
that being offered
Palestinians are unimpressed with your understanding of the Knesset hiding behind the ultra-orthodox for land and water grabs
policies backed by US evangelicals have been MUCH more deadly both domestically and internationally than spasmodic jihad attacks (which are brutal, stupid, chauvinistic and horrid)
Confuscionism has a ...colorful history

but again, the problem does not lie in a book - it lies - as always - in power opportunists exploited the weak-minded via the magic book for exploitative purposes

for forks sake. is there anything in this world we can actually fix or prevent? if i show a picture of my junk, i get jail time, probably just a fine.

if i show a picture, of a "god" (using quotations since i don't know his actual status) to one of the world's largest religions, it is a death sentence in waiting?

in that case free wang pics!
