Considering the world's current circumstances, the answer to this question would seem to have the biggest payoff of any question ever asked, by anyone, through all time...
Is it on record...? Has it been answered...?
Who of us is without sin...? Without a doubt, answering this question acceptably or correctly will give me -- and virtually every other ambitious and capable person in this world, the golden opportunity to be the person they've always wanted to be.
Is this 'worst' sin a personal sin, or a collective-universal sin...?

The meaning of the word sin is to miss the mark, - I don't think that there are too many walking this planet who haven't missed the mark at some stage in their life. Only by missing the mark do we get to realize what doesn't work so we can recognize what does work, and thus expand and grow in the process.
Better and worse, like right and wrong are just value judgements and will be different for each individual - for this reason I don't think there is a worst sin, either individually or collectively. I believe we all have different aspects of our being that need to grow and we are all provided with the opportunities needed for that growth. Some of those opportunities include us having to miss the mark at times in order to realize the wisdom contained within those perceived mistakes. I prefer to use the word mistake rather than sin because when we realize the wisdom or lesson contained within it, it's no longer a mistake but an implement for growth and expansion

Mr Roberts this might not be the answer you are looking for but it is based on my perspective and all of our realities are based on "our" perspectives.
I do not believe there are any sins of humanity. Yes that is what I just said. Now, there are actions created by man and humanity but that is all they are.Some cause pain and suffering and some do not. But all happen for the greater good. Without these so called sins we could not have compassion, growth and better development. I donot wish any harm to anyone but life tells us constant contrast is inevitable.
It just IS. We have chosen to label it as a one time event but the sequential after affects always proplel us to greater heights.
All that humanity does is for us as a whole to be able to grow. And that means suffering on the way.
And for that we should be thankful.
This reality is held together by sin. Without it, there would be nothing. Sins are subjective to the sinner, and the observer of those sins. Let's just say that they don't help your spiritual progress, but at some point sinning will reach a saturation level where they become ineffective to the sinner.

The Knights Alchemy
The sin of allowing the egoic self to run our lives unchecked.
Most of the worlds sins can be traced back to mans self destructive ego and our inability to occasionally step outside it and watch it for a while.
Had i not read Tolles work i wouldnt have answered this question this way.
But i have and this aspect of his reasoning makes sense. Although not all of it did.

"sin" provides the Contrast (re Abe) which allows for reality as we perceive it.

The worst of human sins is self hatred.

The worst sin of humanity is betrayal to yourself, your friends, and family, your leaders, and your country. It is because of betrayal we have Wars and Crime in general.
It was betrayal to God that cause Eve to listen to Satan and lore Adam into committing the first sin in this world, and this sin is now past down from generation to generation! And the Bible has many such stories about betrayal. Jesus Christ was betrayed by one of his disciples after the last Supper and it lead up to his death on the Cross etc.
Betrayal is still the number one of all sins in the world we live in today, it is both personal, and collective so nothing has changed drastically since Adam and Eve time, so we still have a long ways to go; because the Evil Power of Betrayal is Rampant, and is still lurking around the corner for it’s new victims even as we speak, to cause yet another betrayal of disaster, and to build a stronger army of evils doers, to corruption and to destroy all in it’s way!.
