Full Fledged List Analysis: Top 10 Most Terrible Events in History

Which events were really terrible and which ones are overreactions?

1. The Holocaust: Obviously, we want to know WHY Hitler wanted to kill 6 million Jews. They did nothing to him.
2. 9/11 World Trade Center Attacks: Absolute tragedy that people apparently think is a conspiracy. Yes, I was very young when it happened and cried about it too.
3. World War ll: Again, all because Hitler apparently wanted something from Poland. Or something.
4. Atomic Bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki: Sorry about your country, but the war honestly would've dragged on. Americans wanted to show they were serious about ending war and the only way to do that was by A-bomb.
5. The Black Plague: Deserves to be Top 3.
6. The Crucifixion of Jesus Christ: For you Christians, this one is quite an exaggeration.
7. Pearl Harbor Attack: Maybe the Americans wouldn't have done #4 on this list if the Japanese decided not to attack them. Ever think about that?
8. The Slave Trade: Awful, but remember it was those Europeans who caused it.
9. World War I: Not as bad as II because of no mass holocaust.
10. Sinking of the Titanic: Well, learn from your "unsinkable" listen next time.
11. Sandy Hook Shooting: Dreadful event, killing of small children, this guy was a tosser.
12. Hurricane Katrina: Harvey has apparently tied it for destruction, but this one has been remembered for a long time now.
13. Birth of Donald Trump: Was wondering when the first true overreaction came. Not only are you not able to prevent it, you still whine about Donald Trump even though he is not personally doing anything to you. Grow up.
14. Rwanda Genocide: Up there as one of the worst, especially due to lack of pitching in to stop it.
15. Second Congo War: This is one of the worst things Belgium had done.
16. Boston Marathon Bombings: While recent, and somewhat of an overreaction giving its position, it was also terrible for a public event to go haywire due to some bombs.
17. The Crusades: See now this is why Christians get hate. EUROPEAN CHRISTIANS that is.
18. Oklahoma City Bombing: Okay maybe this should be above Boston.
19. Haiti Earthquake: Not much could've been done preventing it.
20. The Japan Earthquake: Well, what did I say?
21. 2011 Norway Attacks - 2011: Why 2011 on here twice? And why isn't this remembered?
22. Syrian Civil War: Still stuff happen in Syria apparently.
23. The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade: But this is already on here, unless this was supposed to be specific.
24. 2012 Aurora Theater Shooting: At the moment, this isn't as bad compared to recent ones.

33. Death of Paul Walker: Oh boo hoo, get over it. Seriously. It's not the end of the world because Paul isn't in it anymore.
34. Orlando Nightclub Shooting: Deadliest in recent times (till Las Vegas), and worse because it was a gay club that got shot.
35. 2011 Joplin Tornado: This was actually devastating.
36. 2016 Lahore Suicide Bombing: And how come this one isn't remembered?
37. Donald Trump Was Elected President: "Everyone died inside" no you are just overreacting because you just don't want something you had a slim chance of changing.

49. Hurricane Sandy: Second costliest, although I was actually spared.
50. 2014 Peshawar School Attack 140 Students Died: No one in the western world knows about this. They focus more on Columbine and European massacres.

58. 2015 Mina Stampede: Hmm, is this why some people hate Muslims?
59. Virginia Tech Massacre: This was the worst UNIVERSITY shooting, not worst school shooting anymore.
60. Bloody Sunday 1971: The most terrible thing about this event is that people only remember it from a song.

And for those of you who say the worst events are because someone was elected president or someone was born or a certain show came on the air, please grow up.

I agree that the crucifixion of Jesus is quite exaggerated by Christians. Not to offend them or anything but nobody knows if Jesus was real or not so is it really necessary to have the death of one (fictional? ) character ahead of so many events where thousands if not millions of people have died? - Redrocm
