"Eugenics, the belief that certain “genetic” traits are good and others bad, is associated in the public mind mostly with the extreme eugenics policies of Adolf Hitler, which ultimately led to the Holocaust. The study of eugenics did not begin with Hitler or his German scientists, but rather was first promoted by Sir Francis Galton, in England. Galton, a cousin of Charles Darwin, who expanded on Darwin’s theories and applied them to the human population. In an article entitled "Hereditary Character and Talent" (published in two parts in MacMillan's Magazine, vol. 11, November 1864 and April 1865, pp. 157-166, 318-327), Galton expressed his frustration that no one was breeding a better human: “If a twentieth part of the cost and pains were spent in measures for the improvement of the human race that is spent on the improvement of the breed of horses and cattle, what a galaxy of genius might we not create! We might introduce prophets and high priests of civilization into the world, as surely as we can propagate idiots by mating cretins. Men and women of the present day are, to those we might hope to bring into existence, what the pariah dogs of the streets of an Eastern town are to our own highly-bred varieties.” Galton in the same article described Africans and Native Americans in derogatory terms making it clear which racial group he thought was superior. Francis Galton, the founder of the Eugenics Society, spoke hopefully about persuading people with desirable genes to marry and have large families. Galton's successor at the helm of the Eugenics Society was Major Leonard Darwin (1850-1943), a son of Charles Darwin. Leonard Darwin, who ran the Eugenics Society until 1928, made the transition from positive to negative eugenics, and promoted plans for lowering the birthrate of the unfit."

Danny, whether Darwin intended his work to be the impetus for evil or not,does not change the fact that it was. Hilter, was also influenced by another atheist,Friedrich Nietzsche.
"The sick are the great danger of man, not the evil, not the 'beasts of prey.' They who are from the outset botched, oppressed, broken those are they, the weakest are they, who most undermine the life beneath the feet of man, who instill the most dangerous venom and skepticism into our trust in life, in man, in ourselves…Here teem the worms of revenge and vindictiveness; here the air reeks of things secret and unmentionable; here is ever spun the net of the most malignant conspiracy – the conspiracy of the sufferers against the sound and the victorious; here is the sight of the victorious hated."
Now again, Friedrich probably didn't mean for someone like Hitler to take his work and use it to commit mass murder, as a matter of fact it was Freidrich's sister Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche that
censored and edited her brother's work to further her own anti-semetic interest and to reconcile Nietzsche's work with Richard Wagner's. But, F N is not completely innocent,
" Although Santaniello clarifies that the meaning of Nietzsche's concepts were distorted by the Nazis, he argues that it was the violent language that described the slave revolt, and the Jews, that instigated the Nazis perversion of Nietzsche's literature (Santaniello, 31).

Now, Danny, according to you I should categorically condem Nietzsche and Darwin and all who follow their teachings, based on what a monster like Hilter and others have done with that same teaching.

And as far as the Holocaust not actually happening, I would like for you to tell all those Jews, many who are still alive today and have numbers tattoed on their bodies that it didn't happen. Danny the last time I checked, starving someone to death is the same as shooting them.

Also, I have, like SK, never commited a heinous crime or assaulted anyone, even when they had a different worldview from my own. And yes if I had information that someone was planning to bomb an abortion clinic, I would do everything possible to see that it did not happen.
