Q: We know the horror of how Hitler killed millions of people—particularly Jews—but what was his justification for doing it?
A: To answer that question, consider this quote from a famous evolutionist, Sir Arthur Keith. He once wrote,
Quote of the Week
“I am an atheist, out and out. It took me a long time to say it. I’ve been an atheist for years and years, but somehow I felt it was intellectually unrespectable to say one was an atheist, because it assumed knowledge that one didn’t have. Somehow it was better to say one was a humanist or an agnostic. I finally decided that I’m a creature of emotion as well as of reason. Emotionally I am an atheist. I don’t have the evidence to prove that God doesn’t exist, but I so strongly suspect he doesn’t that I don’t want to waste my time.”
– Isaac Asimov, Free Inquiry 2(2):9, 1982.
To see evolutionary measures and tribal morality being applied rigorously to the affairs of a great modern nation, we must turn again to Germany of 1942. We see Hitler devoutly convinced that evolution produces the only real basis for a national policy … . The German Führer, as I have consistently maintained, is an evolutionist; he has consciously sought to make the practices of Germany conform to the theory of evolution.
Because Hitler believed in evolution, he applied this practically. He set up the machinery to help nature eliminate those he believed were the unfit. First, it was those he considered to be “genetically inferior”—the mentally and physically disabled. Next, gypsies, Jews and others.
Hitler developed his own form of racism based on his acceptance of evolutionary theory.
Just because someone believes in evolution does not necessarily mean they’ll be a racist. But, because evolution is a belief system without a moral basis, unlike Christianity, it can be used to justify any evil position—just as Hitler’s example shows.
