      A lot has been said about Hitler being an atheist. I hope this puts the matter to rest.
      Nick, you realize that many deaths have been lost on the same conviction that they are doing god’s will!

    “Secular schools can never be tolerated because such a school has no religious instruction and a general moral instruction without a religious foundation is built on air; consequently, all character training and religion must be derived from faith … We need believing people.”
    — Adolf Hitler —
    April 26, 1933, from a speech made during negotiations leading to the Nazi-Vatican Concordat of 1933.

    “Who says I am not under the special protection of God?”

      We must remind people that this atrocities were done in god’s name. So the question they should be answering, was god too busy to answer the prayers of the Jews!

    Hitler, like many before him and many after him, was a mad-man first and foremost; who used any rhetoric, any system of believes that served his mad agenda! It is completely irrelevant whether he believed in God or not! Just like Hitler, Stalin killed millions by using communist philosophy, rhetoric, and system of believes, including militant atheism. History is full of lunatics of all persuasions’ who succeeded in killing by using whatever system of believes came handy at the particular time!

      You are right Daniela, a mad man will do anything so long as he can find a belief system to use. The Aztecs did it and there have been many others in recent times. We must however agree that if we put religion into the picture, you would get people to do atrocities they would never have committed.

        One Makagutu, I don’t understand why you say if we put religion, we would get people doing atrocities they would never have committed. I think, this is a human act, nothing to do with religion.

          I can’t agree more with you friend, Hitler’s act was a human act but with religious undertones. The majority of the SS I believe felt they were fighting for god and this gave the holocaust an impetus it may never have acquired in the first place. Though as my friend said, mad men will use any ideology that they find handy as was in the Rwandan case where tribe was the trump card in the 100 days of murder, plunder and madness!
