Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands. Cults everywhere: Islam, the State, the cult of Gay and Queer, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, 'Science', Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion....a nice variety for the human-hater, amoral, anti-rationalist to choose from. It is so much fun mocking them isn't it ?
Tempus Fugit Memento Mori - Time Flies Remember Death
'God' for the Nazis and Hitler was of two parts: first Germany was portrayed as a living, breathing divine entity, the communalism of superior 'Aryans', destined to rule the world. Second naturalist 'law' or materialism, embedded in evolution was the 'clue' to history, the Marxist-dialectical-Nazi theology of 'progress'; and the usurpation of the tired, decrepit, old 'order' and the advent of the 'new'.
I have long thought that Darwin was in some ways a socio-path; or to be kinder, a man who viewed mankind with distaste and endeavoured to create an anti-humanist theology, which is today termed as 'humanist' by his devotees. Cults usually aspire to the exact opposite of what they preach and believe in. When his 10 year old daughter died Darwin's world-view turned decidedly negative. Evolution in thus little more than a political-social program designed to usurp Christianity and replace it with the cult of Atheism. There is of course precious little 'science' in the sci-fi of Evolution. Pond scum does not 'mutate' by 'accident', into a Professor.
Weikart's book 'From Darwin to Hitler' [reviewed 1, 2] needs to be read by everyone, especially though in most need of the mercy of real information. The modern dis-information society refracted through the media and educational systems lie that Hitler was some sort of 'conservative' evangelical or Catholic, prone to a belief in Jesus, markets, divine-sanction, and foreign trade. The opposite is true of course. Hitlerism was little different than Fascist Communism, with racial superiority, autarchy, state-control, cult devotion and the eradication of the individual into the communal, the main priorities.
Weikart has a chapter 'The Value of Life and the Value of Death' which is terrifying in its description of how Darwinism, reflected in Nazi thought, degrades the very essence of life. Easier to kill someone if they are just 'evolved' pond scum. Nazi theology is suffused with Darwinian explanations and 'laws', as Weikart painstakingly proves. One aspect of Nazi Communism or Fascism was the denigration of life. Killing the sick, the mentally ill, the Jew, the Catholic, the Slav, the Gypsy, or any untermensch was according to Nazi-Evolutionary dogma, necessary to further as Hitler on innumerable occasions stated, 'the natural law' of genetic or racial superiority carried of course only by Aryans.
Weikart writes poignantly on the Nazi preoccupation with death, a theme it derived from Evolution and Darwinist 'natural selection' and 'survival of the fittest' [another meaningless term if one considers science, or how the world actually works]:
Death and evil explained [in simpleton terms by Darwin]: [emphases are mine]
“The Darwinian idea of death as a natural engine of evolutionary progress represented a radical shift from the Christian conception of death as an unnatural, evil foe to be conquered....that would alters ways of thinking about killing and the 'right to life'. Before Darwinism...the sanctity of life was dominant in European thought and law....” [p. 75]
“Darwinism was a matter of life and death. No one understood this better than Darwin did....One of the alluring features of Darwinism, it seems to me [Weikart], was that it offered a secular answer to the problem of evil and death.”
Darwinian Racism [called a 'scientific consensus']
“Emphasizing racial inequality thus served an important function in Darwin's attempt to bridge the chasm between primates and humans...he believed a wide gap separated the 'highest races' from the 'lowest savages', as he [Darwin] called them...”
“Thus, Darwin joined other biological racists in rejecting the influence of education, training, and the environment on shaping human nature.”
You are simply evolved pond-scum or an advanced flat-worm:
“For Haeckel [my note- a rabid evolutionist and fraud, who developed embryological replication of past ancestors; he was convicted of fraud in 1874 but his diagrams are still used in textbooks today] and most German Darwinists, humans were not much different from animals, and they often criticized Christians and other dualists for insisting on significant qualitative distinctions between humans and animals.”
“...Haeckel was clearly a reductionist who denied free will and insisted on mechanistic explanations for everything, including the human soul.”
Note: Since Darwinian materialism is the only 'process' at work in creating life; it stands to reason, that if you are a grouping together of chemical compounds, bound to each other by 'chance', that you have no inherent 'rights', freedoms or free-will. Ergo, your life is rather pointless.
Since you are evolved pond-scum why not employ eugenics?
“Many Darwinists agreed....that humans could be reduced to animals, and quite a few reduced animals to their physical and chemical components. This kind of Darwinian reductionism was strongest among scientists and physicians....Eugenicists, for example, often compared the selective breeding of animals, which they saw as rational and scientific, with human reproduction, which seemed irrational and arbitrary....Sex was thus reduced to a mere biological function.”
Note: Since humans are just 'accidents' according to Darwin, it seems logical [to Darwinists] that eugenics, 'breeding' and culling out the sick, the deranged and the weak, would only enhance and promote Evolutionary 'law'.
Since you are pond-scum you the individual are unimportant
“The idea expressed...by Darwin....that the individual is far less important than the species was a common theme in the writings of German Darwinists around the turn of the century. It resonated with the growing popularity of collectivism and the decline of liberal individualism. This was an important note in devaluing the life of individuals..”
Note: Since the individual was of no consequence [for Darwinists], individuality and freedom were chimeras. A communal fascism in which the 'group' would be 'improved' was the best means to accelerate Evolution and its 'laws'. There was no time to waste on such trifles as personal needs, wants, desires or aspirations.
Darwinist theology, which is in the main a political and social project, is thus a terrifying precursor, foundation and echo of Nazism. All the main elements in devaluing human life are part of the core philosophy and non-science of Darwinism, and they find their expression and implementation within the communal cult Fascisms of Nazism and Communism.
