Excellent question! However, not enough information is available to provide a specific number of deaths from all earthquakes that occured everywhere in the world since the beginning of time. I did some lengthy research on this and I could only find statistics on a 'per earthquake' basis. It has data from the year 1900 forward. For earthquakes with at least 1,000 fatalities, check out: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/regional/world/world_deaths.php For earthquakes with over 50,000 fatalities, check out: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/regional/world/most_destructive.php The U.S. Geological Survey website has a wealth of information! I highly encourage you to check it out at: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/
