    Hitler cited the very words of Jesus as justification. The Church has tried to downplay that -- and tried to divorce Hitler from Christianity -- but history tells a different story.

    Considering the Laws of Physics themselves say that matter/energy cannot be created nor destroyed...

    That's concerning, and certainly nothing that "God's people" would ever do.
    You sound educated. What have you read of the many archaeological discoveries which have completely supported the Biblical historical record dating back 4,000 years or more?

    You cannot prove that because opinions, assumptions, conjectures, speculations and biased interpretations of data do not qualify as proof.

    His religious background did him no good. He seized on noted American evolutionist Madison Grant's racist evolutionist book, "The Passing of the Great Race" as his Bible going forward into the slaughter of all those humans he considered lesser creatures unworthy of life.

    Actually its easily provable. There is no genetic bottleneck in human DNA that would result from there only being two humans alive at a given time.

    Except that Germany already had a history of Anti-Semitism going back to the medieval period that was heavily influenced by Martin Luther.

    But, those who do reject the idea that humans have spirits do not necessarily have unbalanced thoughts, just as those who accept the idea are not necessarily unbalanced in their thinking either. There is no one right way.
    There is no right way? It does not matter to some whether humans have spirits or have brains totally enslaved to their own natural particular chemical reactions and electrical impulses? Is truth a variable?

    Life proves humans cannot scientifically solve all mysteries, and will not solve any mysteries about which they refuse to consider possibilities which are in fact real.

    To hell with the Christian Bible in Nazi Germany, Hitler chose as his bible the racist evolutionist book by noted American evolutionist Madison Grant, "The Passing of the Great Race."
