“The demand that it should be made impossible for defective people to continue to propagate defective offspring is a demand that is based on most reasonable grounds, and its proper fulfillment is the most humane task that mankind has to face.”
That detestable comment was made by none other than the Fuhrer himself, Adolf Hitler. He believed and taught that “defective” people produce defective children, and that it was the duty of the stronger Aryan race to see to it that “defective” people stopped reproducing.
Hitler also said, “Every crossing between two breeds which are not quite equal results in a…biologically lower order of being…Such mating contradicts the will of Nature towards the selective improvements of life in general.”
Will of Nature?
If this sounds like Darwinian evolution, there is a reason for that: it is. While no legitimate person would dare support the above remarks made by Hitler, millions of people adhere to (and teach our kids) Hitler’s influence, Charles Darwin.
I have previously written about how Darwin influenced Hitler (here), but notice the similarities in what Hitler said above with what Darwin wrote in The Descent of Man:
Speaking of “the imbecile, the maimed, and the sick” Darwin said “the weak members of civilized societies propagate their kind. No one who has attended to the breeding of domestic animals will doubt that this must be highly injurious to the race of man…hardly anyone is so ignorant as to allow his worst animals to breed.”
There you have it. The imbeciles (Jews) propagated and injured the race of man (Germans). The natural result of this way of thinking culminated in the Final Solution—the murder of 6 million Jews.
As atrocious as the Holocaust was, that is only one facet of the point. Darwin’s “survival of the fittest” led to the belief that only the fittest should survive. This cost millions of Jews their lives. But what is equally as evil is the general devaluing of human life that Darwin gave birth to.
Once mankind stopped being created in the image of God, life had no value, and became expendable, whether in the asylum, the gas chamber, or in the womb.
