Software engineer recently did a textual analysis of religious texts and found the Bible contains more references to killing and destruction than the Qur’an.

Mr. Anderson, the Engineer who conducted the analysis, states: “Killing and destruction are referenced slightly more often in the New Testament (2.8%) than in the Quran (2.1%), but the Old Testament clearly leads—more than twice that of the Quran—in mentions of destruction and killing (5.3%).”

It should be noted that violence in the Qur’an, contextually, is always in references to a just use of violence and said analysis did take this into account.
