Karl Marx was a 19th century German political theorist and a colleague of Friedrich Engels (1820-1895). Engels was a German revolutionary political economist and a fellow materialist with Marx. When Darwin introduced his theories to the world as his interpretation of the Origin of Species (1859), these men supported him and found this theory quite convenient to their philosophical and political agenda. Thus Marx published his influential work Das Kapital in 1867. Marx promoted the abolishment of private property and concluded with a plea for action, and action he received. Much of this action was after his death through a Russian revolutionary named Vladimir Lenin, who was influenced by Marx‘s book, Das Kapital.
Darwin‘s theories were the biological basis for a theory of society called Social Darwinism, developed in the 1870s. This view stressed competition between individuals but it was also connected to the ideas of Eugenics, Racial Supremacy, Imperialism, Fascism, Nazism, the struggle between national or racial groups and formed the basis of Engels’ and Lenin’s Dialectical Materialism. The action that Marx wanted now had more of a philosophical foundation.
Operating on Marx‘s and Darwin’s ideas, Lenin and his successor, Joseph Stalin massacred tens of millions and Vladamir Lenin, millions as well, most of which were Orthodox Christians. Dinesh D’Souza says in What’s So Great About Christianity (Regency Publishing, INC.: Washington, DC)
“Stalin was responsible for around twenty million deaths, produced through mass slayings, forced labor camps, show trials followed by firing squads, population relocation and starvation and so on.” (pg.214)
The Republic of China (ROC), founded in 1912 after the overthrow of the Qing dynasty, ruled the Chinese mainland until 1949. In the 1946–1949 phase of the Chinese Civil War, the Chinese Communists defeated the Chinese Nationalists (Kuomintang) on the mainland and established the People’s Republic of China in Beijing on 1 October 1949 and was proclaimed such by the Atheist Mao Zedong who was highly influenced by Vladamir Lenin. D’Souza says, “Jung Chang and Jon Halliday’s authoritative recent study Mao: The Unknown Story attributes to Mao Zedong’s regime a staggering seventy million deaths.” (pg. 214)
Atheist Fidel Castro 1926-? A.D. is a Cuban revolutionary and politician. He was Prime Minister of Cuba from 1959 to 1976, and then President from 1976 to 2008. Along with Mao Zedong, he was highly influenced by the Marx-Leninist tradition. Though born and baptized Roman Catholic and trained by Jesuits, he became an atheist. The Cuban Revolution was an armed revolt by Fidel Castro. Castro moved against the regime of Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista between 1953 and 1959. Batista was ousted on January 1, 1959. Castro then led a replacement government. Castro reformed his government along communist lines and became the Communist Party of Cuba in October 1965. In 1961 the government was officially declared to be atheist. Castro’s regime is still being investigated but estimates count over 30, 000 people murdered under his regime.
II-Sung was installed into power by Joseph Stalin and the Soviets. R.J. Rummel says in Chapter 10 of his STATISTICS OF DEMOCIDE,
“From 1948 through 1987 the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea was ruled by Kim Il-sung, an absolute communist dictator who has turned his country into an Orwellian state. People were so tightly controlled in all their activities, and those visitors that were allowed in were so managed, that comparatively little independent information about the regime’s purges, executions, and concentration and forced labor camps filtered out of the country. Nonetheless, through defectors, escapees, agents, Korean War refugees, and analyses of Korean publications and documents, a hazy picture emerges of systematic democide little different than that carried out in the first decades of the Soviet Union or early communistChina. Perhaps from 710,000 to slightly over 3,500,000 people have been murdered, with a mid-estimate of almost 1,600,000. But these figures are little more than educated guesses.”
What is clear is that Il-sung’s Communistic Juche philosophy led to the starvation of over 3 million people. Kim Jon Ill ruled in North Korea from 1994 to his recent death in December of 2011. His regime held up to 200,000 political prisoners and his starvation politics has killed at least 2 million people in the 90s and we do not even know how many more in the 21st century.
D’Souza says, “Consider Pol Pot. Who was the leader of the Khmer Rouge, the Communist Party faction that ruled Cambodia from 1975 to 1979. Within this four year period Pol Pot and his Revolutionary ideologues engaged in systematic mass relocations and killings that eliminated approximately one-fifth of the Cambodian population, an estimated 1.5 million to 2 million people..atheist regimes have in a single century murdered more than one hundred million people.” (pg. 214)
A movie was made about this man’s regime titled “The Killing Fields”.
The most devastating outgrowth of the application of Darwin’s theory to Society, Eugenics, is Abortion. Negative Eugenics focused on lowering fertility among the genetically disadvantaged. Unfortunately this history does not begin in Nazi Germany but most of it originates right here in the United States. Francis Galton was an Englishman who applied his half-cousin’s (Charles Darwin) biology to society. He believed that Western Civilization protected inferior species from extinction. This needed to change and a systematic elimination of inferior humans was necessary for our evolution.
After being highly influenced by Galton’s work American biologist Charles Davenport became the father of American Eugenics. (Not surprising Davenport was removed from the well known Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory for his racism and his replacement James D. Watson was removed in 2007 for his racist leanings after serving there since 1969. Atheist Margaret Sanger was an associate of Davenport and was highly influenced by his eugenics philosophy. She is the founder of Planned Parenthood where Americans kill their unborn children today.
There are clear links between American eugenicists such as Margaret Sanger and Harry H. Laughlin with the Nazi movement. Harry H. Laughlin wrote the Virginia model statute that Nazi Ernst Rudin used for his Law for the Prevention of Hereditarily Diseased Offspring. Laughlin even received an honorary doctorate from Heidelberg University in 1936 for his assistance to Adolf Hitler‘s cause. Ernst Rudin wrote articles on eugenics for Margaret Sanger‘s Birth Control Review. Sanger was a known racist and even attended and spoke at a New Jersey meeting of the Ku Klux Klan auxiliary.
In Nazi Germany, Social Darwinism naturally evolved into racial hygiene theories by men like Fritz Lenz, Eugen Fischer and Otmar von Verschuer. Hitler believed that the racially pure were to be encouraged to reproduce while the racially un-pure were to be sterilized or killed. Abortion, birth control and forced sterilizations were suggested; thus the Holocaust. Following Hitler’s regime, a man named Josef Rudolf Mengele (1911-1979 A.D.) a.k.a. “The Angel of Death” mastered the science of abortion.
The perfection of Nazism came with the eugenic interpretation of Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche’s doctrine of the Superman and his book The Will to Power. Nietzsche thought that human populations conform to tradition, whereas his ideal Superman is independent, and individualistic. The Superman feels deeply, but his passions are rationally regulated to meet practical needs and for the purpose of order. Nietzsche‘s Superman is a creator of values and a creator of a master morality that reflects someone who is liberated from all values (Societal) except those that he deems practical (Thus his Nihilism-Beyond Good and Evil). The concept of the Superman has often been viewed as one that promotes a master-slave society and has been identified with despotic and totalitarian regimes. When taken consistently, this is where existentialism leads. The question that Nietzsche asks is not whether something is true or not, but, does it sustain life? His ethical theory is also developed in The Will to Power (Der Wille zur Macht). He objects to his materialist colleagues when he asks them why evolution has not yet reached its goal. He uses this argument to prove there is no purpose to life or ethics but only a will to power.
Atheists have disputed that Nietzsche’s philosophy was foundational to Hitler’s Nazism. William Shirer in his famous The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich states,
“Yet I think no one who lived in the Third Reich could have failed to be impressed by Nietzsche’s inﬂuence on it. His books might be full, as Santayana said, of ‘genial imbecility’ and ‘boyish blasphemies.’ Yet Nazi scribblers never tired of extolling him. Hitler often visited the Nietzsche museum in Weimar and publicized his veneration for the philosopher by posing for photographs of himself staring in rapture at the bust of the great man. There was some ground for this appropriation of Nietzsche as one of the originators of the Nazi Weltanschauung. Had not the philosopher thundered against democracy and parliaments, preached the will to power, praised war and proclaimed the coming of the master race and the superman – and in the most telling aphorisms? A Nazi could proudly quote him on almost every conceivable subject, and did. On Christianity: ‘the one great curse, the one enormous and innermost perversion . . . I call it the one immortal blemish of mankind . . .This Christianity is no more than the typical teaching of the Socialists.’ On the State, power and the jungle world of man: ‘Society has never regarded virtue as anything else than as a means to strength, power and order. The State [is] unmorality organized . . . the will to war, to conquest and revenge . . . Society is not entitled to exist for its own sake but only as a substructure and scaﬀolding, by means of which a select race of beings may elevate themselves to their higher duties . . . There is no such thing as the right to live, the right to work, or the right to be happy: in this respect man is no diﬀerent from the meanest worm.’ And he exalted the superman as the beast of prey, ”the magniﬁcent blond brute, avidly rampant for spoil and victory.” And war? Here Nietzsche took the view of most of the other nineteenth century German thinkers. In the thundering Old Testament language in which Thus Spake Zarathustra is written, the philosopher cries out: ‘Ye shall love peace as a means to new war, and the short peace more than the long. You I advise not to work, but to ﬁght. You I advise not to peace but to victory . . .Ye say it is the good cause which halloweth even war? I say unto you: it is the good war which halloweth every cause. War and courage have done more great things than charity.”
Finally there was Nietzsche’s prophecy of the coming elite who would rule the world and from whom the superman would spring. In The Will to Power he exclaims: ‘A daring and ruler race is building itself up . . . The aim should be to prepare a transvaluation of values for a particularly strong kind of man, most highly gifted in intellect and will. This man and the elite around him will become the ‘lords of the earth.’
Such rantings from one of Germany’s most original minds must have struck a responsive chord in Hitler’s littered mind. At any rate he appropriated them for his own – not only the thoughts but the philosopher’s penchant for grotesque exaggeration, and often his very words. ”Lords of the Earth” is a familiar expression in Mein Kampf. That in the end Hitler considered himself the superman of Nietzsche’s prophecy can not be doubted.
‘Whoever wants to understand National Socialist Germany must know Wagner,’ Hitler used to say. This may have been based on a partial misconception of the great composer, for though Richard Wagner harbored a fanatical hatred, as Hitler did, for the Jews, who he was convinced were out to dominate the world with their money, and though he scorned parliaments and democracy and the materialism and mediocrity of the bourgeoisie, he also fervently hoped that the Germans, ”with their special gifts,” would ”become not rulers, but ennoblers of the world.” (pg. 90-91 or in an older version, [Crest Book, Fawcett Publications Inc.: Greewich, Conn.1959, 1960] pg. 146-147)
Richard Wagner was the idol and close associate of Nietzsche. Wagner was a life-long atheist yet Nietzsche accused him of converting to Christianity later in life in the year 1876. In Nietzsche’s essay Nietzsche contra Wagner- How I Got Rid Of Wagner, he says, “Already in the summer of 1876, when the first festival at Bayreuth was at its height, I took leave of Wagner in my soul. I cannot endure anything double-faced. Since Wagner had returned to Germany, he had condescended step by step to everything that I despise—even to anti-Semitism.… As a matter of fact, it was then high time to bid him farewell: but the proof of this came only too soon. Richard Wagner, ostensibly the most triumphant creature alive; as a matter of fact, though, a cranky and desperate décadent, suddenly fell helpless and broken on his knees before the Christian cross”.
Therefore, we can see a clear line of atheist philosophy that Hitler inherited and lived out. The attempts by atheists to make Hitler a Christian are a complete howler. Hitler surrounded himself by fervent atheists (Goebbles, Himmler, Heydrich and Bormann) and based the foundation of his Philosophy on Darwinian and Nihilistic principles. Germanyhad been an established Christian nation for centuries and he wanted to get them on his side. That is why he made Pro-Christian statements in his speeches. Today Republican politicians do the same thing to American Evangelicals today; duping them into accepting Roman Catholic Foreign Policies. Also, Hitler’s problem with the Jews was not religious. Most of the Jews at his time were secularists as they are today. His problem was with their genetics as he was a consistent follower of Social Darwinism. To reinforce Hitler’s aversion to Christianity Hitler says in, Table Talk , “The reason why the ancient world was so pure, light and serene was that it knew nothing of the two great scourges: the pox and Christianity. Christianity is a prototype of Bolshevism: the mobilisation by the Jew of the masses of slaves with the object of undermining society.” – 19th October, 1941. Nazi teaching was overtly anti-Christian. Evans says,
“In Himmler’s plans for the SS after 1933 the black shirted racial elite was to become a kind of quasi-religious order, modeled to some extent on the Jesuits. The ideas that were to cement it together were drawn from supposed Germanic pagan rituals and beliefs of the Dark Ages. As an SS plan put it in 1937: ‘WE live in the age of the final confrontation with Christianity. It is part of the mission of the SS to give the German people over the next fifty years the non-Christian ideological foundations for a way of life appropriate ton their own character. ” (pg. 252-253 The Third Reich in Power by Richard Evans).
Evans on the same page points out that Himmler forbid his men to celebrate Christmas in an attempt to de-christianize them. Evan points out on page 226 that the Nazi’s created a puppet church which was a pseudo-christian church that was protested against as unchristian. On page 230, Evans shows that Theology students were forced to join Nazi groups, a Protestant publishing house was confiscated, and a Protestant church in Munich destroyed and by the end of “1937, over 700 Protestant Pastors in the country had been imprisoned.”
I find it entertaining that atheists quote Joseph Goebbels as denying that Christ was a Jew. But guess what all Christians believe as the New Testament asserts on dozens of occasions that Jesus was a Jew and was descended from Abraham. That’s the whole Point! Oh but Hitler has a Christian upbringing! So what? So did Stalin. So did Fidel Castro. They rejected it later in life. Atheists also like to point out that Hitler admired Martin Luther for his hatred of Jews. This is misinformed. The so called book by Martin Luther – On the Jews and Their Lies, was a fraud. Luther did not write it. Eric John Phelps says,
“We read the following supposed words of Luther from a purported 1543 essay; which, in fact, was published sometime after his death in 1546 titled On the Jews and Their Lies—a sort of Donation of Constantine intended to benefit the Papacy by uniting Catholics and Bible-reading Protestants against the Jews—and feel our blood begin to boil as we reach for our Swords of Just Defense:
‘What shall we Christians do with this rejected and condemned people, the Jews? . . . I shall give you my sincere advice [Without a Biblical citation?]:
First, to set fire to their synagogues or schools and to bury and cover with dirt whatever will not burn, so that no man will ever again see a stone or cinder of them [No such language is found in any of his works!] . . .
Second, I advise that their houses also be razed and destroyed. For they pursue in them the same aims as in their synagogues. Instead they might be lodged under a roof or in a barn, like the gypsies [More Romanism!] . . .
Third, I advise that all their prayer books and Talmudic writings . . . be taken from them [yet Luther’s Commentary on Romans (Chapters 9-11) is void of this language] . . .
Fourth, I advise that their rabbis be forbidden to teach henceforth on pain of loss of life and limb [Luther never even said this of the Pope!] . . .
Fifth, I advise that safe-conduct on the highways be abolished completely for the Jews [the very safe-conduct which saved Luther’s life from the kidnappers of the Papal Legate who would have brought him to Rome for his trial and execution, he now would forbid to the persecuted Jews?]…
Sixth, I advise that all cash and treasure of silver and gold be taken from them and put aside for safekeeping . . . [Luther advocating grand theft? This is the language of the Jesuits and the works of their Holy Office of the Inquisition, including Hitler’s Third Reich whose National Reich Church forbade the publishing and dissemination of Luther’s Bible in Germany] . . .
Seventh, I recommend putting a flail, an ax, a hoe, a spade, a distaff, or spindle into the hands of young Jews and Jewesses and letting them earn their bread in the sweat of their brow, as was imposed on the children of Adam [i.e., forced labor in the Pope’s Nazi SS concentration camps as preached by Masonic Lutheran Jesuit Temporal Coadjutor and mentor of Hitler, ex-priest Joerg Lanz von Liebenfels] . . . Accordingly, it must and dare not be considered a trifling matter, but a most serious one, to seek counsel against this and to save our souls from the Jews, that is, from the devil and from eternal death [Rome’s Jesuit doctrine of salvation by works so hated by Luther? How crazy!] . . . Burn down their synagogues, forbid all that I enumerated earlier, force them to work, and deal harshly with them, as Moses did in the wilderness, slaying three thousand lest the whole people perish [Moses never slew them!] . . .
There it would be wrong to be merciful and confirm them in their conduct. If this does not help we must drive them out like mad dogs [as did the Nazis] so that we do not become partakers of their other vices and thus merit God’s wrath and be damned with them [again, the Jesuits’ heresy of “salvation by works” whereby they can advise a man to commit the most horrid of crimes for which his soul will be saved from eternal death].’
Did not Jesuit Generals Ledochowski (1915-1942) and Janssens (1946-1964), using their Society of Jesus Society in control of Roman Catholic Hitler’s Nazis and the Jewish Labor Zionists, do all these things to the pitiful Jews of Europe only sixty five years ago?
Dear truth-seeker, Martin Luther never wrote these words, as they do not comprise his style nor convey his Biblical, doctrinal convictions. Written after his death in 1546 and then deceitfully attributed to the Great Reformer as having been penned by him in 1543, these are the cruel words of the Jesuits betraying their doctrines championed by their evil Council of Trent.” (Vatican Assassins 2007, pg. 1172-1174)
According to the National Right to Life Website, over 50 million unborn children have been murdered in the United States since abortion was legalized in 1973. There are over 40 million recorded abortions worldwide every year!
Now ask yourself, who really has the atrocious blood on their hands: religious people or atheists?
