The Holocaust Truth vs. Myths
Adolph Hitler’s Darwinian Holocaust
I have found that most of the advocates for biblical creation have never read the Bible. In a similar manner, it has been my experience that most of the people who support Darwin’s theory of evolution have never read his writings. They have simply taken the word of their teachers (whom they wrongly assume have read his works;) and therefore, feel compelled to argue in favor of that politically correct position. In debates, I have asked science teachers to name the works of Darwin. A few can name one, but most cannot properly name any of his books. This is deeply troubling, because even a cursory examination of his positions reveals that, like most intellectuals of his day, he held extremely racist views. In this post, I will present evidence to support my contention that Darwinian philosophy was directly responsible for the Holocaust.
Due to Christianity’s history of persecuting the Jews, the terrible tragedy that befell them during WWII has been mischaracterized as something that resulted from Christianized Europe’s rampant anti-Semitism. In fact, though six million Jews were killed in this disaster, at least eight million non-Jews were similarly eliminated. In order to avoid the confusion that results when it is referred to as the Jewish Holocaust, I have deliberately renamed this tragedy. Separating the Jews from the rest of the victims of this Darwinian debacle allows us to blame illusive culprits like “hate” thereby obscuring the terrible implications for science. Though anti-Semitism was indeed a factor in the Final Solution, it was not the cause of the Holocaust. A few hate-filled fanatics could never have implemented such devastation. The decision to systematically eliminate fourteen million people required not only political will, but the kind of legitimacy that can only be afforded by an ethical or scientific authority. The Holocaust resulted from a government authorized attempt to use Darwinian philosophy to manage a futuristic civilization in the Third Reich. It was a scientifically planned effort to create a master race of pure-blooded Aryans through the implementation of Darwin’s theories on artificial, or methodical, selection. The fact that European Jews, as a group, took the largest number of casualties has muddied the waters, allowing atheistic science to escape blame for this genocidal experiment. It is time to set the record straight.
Most people can readily see the connection between the perverted doctrines of early Christianity and Europe’s rampant anti-Semitism. For centuries, in purges, pogroms and witch hunts, these mistaken beliefs caused hundreds of thousands of innocent people to be killed. Yet even under the Christian Inquisition, each heretic, witch or Jew had to be given a trial and executed on an individual basis. If a Jew recanted and submitted to baptism, his life would be spared. When these mechanisms failed to solve the “Jewish Problems” of England and Spain, they simply expelled the entire population from the country. These were terrible tragedies, but they pale when compared to the genocide caused by the doctrines of atheistic science. Unlike the Inquisition, the Darwinian Holocaust was not about religious beliefs; consequently, there was no chance to recant nor any baptism to cleanse one of the imagined genetic defects that scientists considered offensive. When it was over, the appalling death statistics from the Inquisition would seem paltry next to the multiplied millions slaughtered by the scientific doctrines of social Darwinism.
During the years when Hitler was forming his political ideology, Darwin was the darling of modern science. Scholars, revolutionaries, scientists and philosophers were falling over themselves trying to prove their intellectual prowess by expounding on the virtues of his theory of evolution. Not surprisingly, a persistent theme of Hitler’s philosophy, is social Darwinism – the concept that human civilizations are subject to the evolutionary law of the survival of the fittest. Darwin’s theory led Hitler to believe that the very existence of the German people was being genetically threatened from within by intermarriage with foreigners and politically threatened from without by Marxism, which, as he saw it, was secretly being funded and manipulated by the Jews.
Darwin’s theory that science could improve the human race through artificial selection gave rise to the Nazi concept of creating a master race. Taking this theory to its logical conclusion, Hitler’s scientists planned to systematically nurture the Aryan race. First, they would protect it from further defilement through intermarriage with what Darwin had called the “savage races.” Second, they would eliminate the defects that jeopardized the stability of the Aryan gene pool, such as mental illness, physical weakness, homosexuality and criminality. Third, they planned to wipe out the threat posed by rival races within the Fatherland. Darwin’s doctrine mitigated the need for scientists to treat people as individual human beings, classifying them instead as groups along an evolutionary chain. It allowed Nazi scientists to declare large numbers of people to be either a rival race or individual mutations that threatened the development of a healthy Aryan society in Germany. Now any individuals or groups deemed inferior by Darwinian scientists in the Third Reich could simply be eliminated en mass through clinical-sounding “artificial selection experiments” aimed at perfecting the quality of the master race.
In the following quote from Descent Of Man, Darwin reveals how his ignorance of the true cause of the collapse of the ancient world contributed to his mistaken theories.
All that we know about savages, or may infer from traditions and from old monuments, the history of which is quite forgotten by present inhabitants, shew that from the remotest times successful tribes have supplanted other tribes. Relics of extinct or forgotten tribes have been discovered throughout the civilized regions of the earth, on the wild plains of America, and on the isolated islands in the Pacific Ocean. At present day civilized nations are everywhere supplanting barbarous nations, excepting where the climate opposes a deadly barrier; and they succeed mainly, though not exclusively, through their arts, which are the products of the intellect. It is, therefore, highly probable that with mankind the intellectual faculties have been mainly and gradually perfected through natural selection; and this conclusion is sufficient for our purpose… (Ch. 5 – part 1 p.160)
This is a perfect example of how anti-historicism and the resultant ignorance of the true cause of the collapse of the ancient world has led atheistic scientists to reach one erroneous conclusion after another. In this case it causes Darwin to assume that the transition from ancient to modern civilization was the result of evolution and natural selection. This is a huge mistake that perverts his entire outlook. He wrongly concludes that the ancient civilizations were gradually supplanted by races with superior morals and intellect. As a result, he feels comfortable with the idea that the advanced civilizations of Europe should conquer the “barbarous nations” of the world. He not only sees this as inevitable, but as absolutely essential to the survival of the species, since, in his view, human racial groups are bound by the law of the of the survival of the fittest. That tragic mistake allowed Nazi scientists to be clinically detached while using mass sterilization and extermination as instruments of methodical selection in the Holocaust. Another quote from his writings provides some insight into the racism of Darwin. Here he refers to his less affluent fellow humans as “savages” and suggests that we sterilize the weaker members of civilized society.
With savages, the weak in body or mind are soon eliminated; and those that survive commonly exhibit a vigorous state of health. We civilized men, on the other hand, do our utmost to check the process of elimination; we build asylums for the imbecile, the maimed, and the sick; we institute poor-laws; and our medical men exert their utmost skill to save the life of every one to the last moment. There is reason to believe that vaccination has preserved thousands, who from a weak constitution would formerly have succumbed to small-pox. Thus the weak members of civilized societies propagate their kind. No one who has attended to the breeding of domestic [farm] animals will doubt that this must be highly injurious to the race of man. It is surprising how soon a want of care, or care wrongly directed, leads to the degeneration of a domestic race; but excepting in the case of man himself, hardly any one is so ignorant as to allow his worst animals to breed. (Ch. 5 – part 1 p.168)
This is the classic Darwinian approach to his fellow-man. He sees himself in the role of a scientific cattle rancher, attempting to purge objectionable defects from the human herd. His theory that man evolved from the primates allows him to view the human race as merely another breed of animal that desperately needs to be thinned in order to ensure its survival. Darwin lampoons all of mankind’s humane efforts to sustain his fellow-man as ill-advised methodical selection that is thwarting the benefits that would flow from a system of natural selection, as it exists in the “savage races.” He warns that if we continue to use methodical selection in this sympathetic manner, the blood lines of the civilized white races will be weakened from within and the physically superior savage races will take over the earth. Darwin goes on to suggest that we should instead use methodical selection to prevent the less desirable members of the herds from procreating; thereby, ensuring civilization’s survival. His paranoid prediction was not lost on Nazi scientists. It allowed them to assuage their natural sympathies, while slaughtering fellow humans they considered defective for society’s greater good. These racist philosophies are at the very heart of the Darwinian Holocaust.
Darwin’s next statement is even more disturbing:
The aid which we feel impelled to give to the helpless is mainly an incidental result of the instinct of sympathy, which was originally acquired as part of the social instincts, but subsequently rendered more tender and more widely diffused. Nor could we check our sympathy, even at the urging of hard reason, without deterioration in the noblest part of our nature. The surgeon may harden himself whilst performing an operation, for he knows that he is acting for the good of his patient; but if we were intentionally to neglect the weak and helpless, it could only be for a contingent benefit, with an overwhelming present evil. (Ch. 5 – Part 1 p.168-9)
The End Justifies the Means
Hitler’s scientists used this concept to justify eliminating the present evil of genetically inferior humans from the German herd for the contingent benefit of a pure and healthy mankind in a perfect Fatherland. They even went so far as to parade pure-blooded Germans through the streets as traitors for having intermarried or shared a bed with a Jew or Gypsy. The fact that Darwin singled out Jews and Gypsies for special attention in his writings also provided a certain scientific legitimacy to the work of the Nazis.
The uniform appearance in various parts of the world of gypsies and Jews, though the uniformity of the latter has been somewhat exaggerated, is likewise an argument on the same side. (Ch. 7 – part 1 p.242)
In this quote, Darwin makes reference to the similar appearance of Jews and Gypsies when comparing the methodical crossbreeding of farm animals with how natural selection creates skin color in humans. The very fact that Jews and Gypsies didn’t normally intermarry with the indigenous populations made them perfect guinea pigs for Darwin. Unfortunately, it is all too clear that his devotees in Nazi Germany found them equally compelling. They saw them as the very fulfillment of his ominous predictions concerning the danger posed by the “savage races.” This was the type of ideological madness that was driving the agendas of the emerging leaders of Europe as the monarchies began to fall. Hitler concluded that if he was to win the race to lead the modern world, he would first have to restore the German economy and create an orderly society. Most modern writers portray Hitler as some kind of maniacal monster who enjoyed killing people he hated. Nothing could be further from the truth. Hitler saw himself as a futuristic leader with a grand vision for a new socialist government that would restore order to a chaotic world. He envisioned a Napoleonic-style empire that would utilize the brightest minds of the modern world to bring mankind health and prosperity through a master race that would rule the earth. Social Darwinism had convinced the Nazi scientists that civilized ancient societies like Rome and Greece had been destroyed from within. They theorized that intermarriage with immigrants and rival races had weakened these empires and led to their downfall. Hitler planned to avoid that mistake by combining the glory, power and leader worship of those ancient civilizations with Darwinian science to create a modern government that would reign for a thousand years. The Nazis planned to fight a relentless struggle against their internal and external enemies and, in the process, conquer enough territory to protect the Fatherland; a race of pure-blooded Aryans in a new socialist Germany would be the crown jewel of this great empire. To implement this grandiose scheme, Nazi scientists planned to end the mixing of blood lines that had resulted from immigration. A totally pure Aryan race would be isolated from any integration with foreigners, and even Germans who had intermarried with outsiders would have to be excluded. These disciples of Darwin saw the Nordic-Aryan race as the top of the evolutionary chain. In an effort to implement the first full-scale test of Darwin’s theories on methodical selection, they set about eliminating all the “defective” and non-Aryan members of the population. They ordered the mass sterilization of over four hundred thousand mixed-blooded German citizens and identified Jews, Gypsies, Jehovah’s Witnesses, criminals, communists, homosexuals, dissidents and all handicapped people for special attention. The less easily identifiable groups, like Jews and homosexuals, were forced to wear armbands in order to eliminate the possibility of accidental sexual encounters with pure Aryans.
The Jewish Problem
By the late 1930s, the xenophobia produced by social Darwinism had reached its peak. To Nazi scientists, the growing populations of “savage races” in Europe appeared to be an exact fulfillment of Darwin’s ominous predictions. They began to see them as a dagger ready to pierce the heart of the more civilized white races of Europe. The Jews, in particular, were not only a growing percentage of European civilization, but they controlled a large portion of the German economy. Pure blooded Aryans were already serving as maids, nannies and day laborers for the more wealthy members of this “savage race.” Hitler’s Christian upbringing, combined with the fact that the Jews had supported the rise of communism in Russia, led him to see them as a fifth column. He considered them to be a rival civilization within the borders of Germany who were responsible for everything from the death of the Christ to the economic troubles of the Great Depression. Marxism, the only viable opposition to Nazism, was very popular among the Jews; therefore, as the largest non-Aryan group in Germany, they posed a threat not just genetically, but politically as well. Their vast numbers, great wealth and Marxist ideology posed a far more ominous danger than all the other non-Aryan or defective members of German society combined. To eliminate their potentially dangerous ideological competition and avoid further contamination of Aryan blood lines, all Jews were immediately herded into ghettos like quarantined cattle. An indication of how gravely they perceived the problem can be seen in the fact that resources vital to the war effort were instead dedicated to finding a “Final Solution” to this impending Darwinian disaster.
A Scientific Utopia
In the early stages of the Holocaust, scientists invested a huge effort in an attempt to categorize all non-Aryans by physical characteristics (i.e. eye and skin color, nose and head shape) in order to determine the genetic differences between the savage races and pure Germans. During this period their goal was to try to Aryanize some of these people, in the hope of making them useful citizens. Aside from being ghastly, their early experiments reveal the Darwinian nature of their efforts. Scientists injected blue dye into the eyes of Jews and Gypsies as part of an experiment in color control, and similar attempts were made to manipulate skin and hair coloring. When their attempts to medically correct these “defects” failed, scientists began to use people like lab mice in more brutal military experiments. They dropped them into ice water to see how long a downed pilot could survive in Arctic waters and subjected others to radical changes in atmospheric pressure until their ear drums burst. When these poor people served no further purpose as guinea pigs, the scientists merely gassed them and cremated their remains. Later, as more resources had to be allocated to the external war, scientists began to realize that they were running out of time to achieve their Darwinian utopia and moved to simply eliminate these people as quickly as possible. At that point, the incredible paranoia generated by this strange mix of ideologies, known as Nazism, quickly erupted into what eventually became known as the Holocaust. Hitler ordered the far-reaching hands of the Nazis and their allies to round up the Jews, along with all the other defective members of society, and ship them to concentration camps for extermination. In all, more than fourteen million human beings – men, women and children – were brutally sacrificed on the altar of experimental science, the first government sanctioned attempt to implement Darwin’s theory of methodical selection. Another quote from Darwin may help us to understand the scientific concepts that motivated apparently normal and intelligent human beings to inaugurate such a perverted scientific experiment.
…Man differs widely from any strictly domesticated animal; for his breeding has never long been controlled, either by methodical or unconscious selection. No race or body of men has been so completely subjugated by other men, as that certain individuals should be preserved, and thus unconsciously selected, from somehow excelling in utility to their masters. Nor have certain male and female individuals been intentionally picked out and matched, except in the well-known case of the Prussian grenadiers; and in this case man obeyed, as might have been expected, the law of methodical selection; for it is asserted that many tall men were reared in the villages inhabited by the grenadiers and their tall wives. (Ch. 4 – part 1 p.112)
Here, Darwin laments the fact that no race has ever been sufficiently subjugated by other men to allow a true test of methodical selection as a means of creating a superior breed of human, and he regrets that the experiments in Prussia weren’t scientific enough to reach a conclusion. Should we be surprised that his followers in Nazi Germany tried to fulfill his dream of a full-scale, “truly scientific” methodical selection experiment? Nazi scientists, steeped in the amoral concepts of atheistic science, acted like mind-numbed robots. They felt no pang of conscience when carrying out the methodical extermination of Jews, Gypsies and even fellow Germans for the contingent benefit of creating a Darwinian master race in a perfect Fatherland. Current scientists try to salvage the loathsome doctrines of methodical selection and evolution by claiming that Nazi scientists perverted or misunderstood Darwin. This is the equivalent of modern Christians claiming that the people who put the Jews on the trains weren’t “true” Christians, or that the perpetrators of the Inquisition misinterpreted Church teaching. Sooner or later, we will all have to face the fact that these perverted doctrines of science and religion have caused otherwise good people to do terrible things. Nazi scientists didn’t misunderstand Darwin; to the contrary, they did their best to carry out his loathsome doctrines with characteristic German precision. If the cult of atheistic science continues to glorify Darwin and teach his perverted doctrines to its converts, these new adherents will eventually repeat this madness under the guise of genetic manipulation or cloning “for the good of society.” If Darwin is right, then another Holocaust is not only inevitable, but scientifically justifiable. It is my position that he is dead wrong; therefore, scientists should repudiate his abhorrent racist “theory” of evolution, drive it from our elementary schools, and apologize to humanity for their part in the Holocaust.
In his book, Evolution, A Theory in Crisis, Dr. Michael Denton makes the following extraordinary statement:
One might have expected that a theory of such cardinal importance, a theory that literally changed the world, would have been something more than metaphysics, something more than myth. Ultimately the Darwinian theory of evolution is no more nor less than the great cosmogenic myth of the twentieth century. (Denton, p.358)
Dr. Denton is right, the “Theory” of Evolution is a great myth, second only to myth that spawned it – Atheism.
In God we Trust
America’s founding motto is: “In God we Trust.”
Atheism is antithetical to America’s founding precepts.
Atheism is a godless Anti-American religion. Darwin is its messiah. Evolution is its atheistic creation myth. Liberalism, socialism, and ideological science are its Dogmas; as such, it is an Anti-American godless religion. Why is “science” indoctrinating every child in America’s elementary schools with this radical Anti-American ideology? It should be banned from academia and government under the separation of church and state statute. See the link; The Noble Lies of Science and Religion on the Navigator.
