A must read story, reminded me of how tough life could be.
Was Hitler really a Christian? Was he a catholic? Did he have a secret Christian agenda? People have been forming opinions about it since the days of the second world war.
I so often hear these words “Hitler was a Christian”. Spoken by people, most of who probably don’t even know anything else about Hitler; or on one occasion a 12 year old kid who told me he knew the truth of the universe. How lucky? I thought.
I see this bring up in debates and I must say I cringe every time I hear these words. Let me offer some food for thought to those who still maintain a belief in Hitler being a Christian.
All of the excerpts are quotes from Hitler himself. Taken from Adolf Hitler, Monologe im Führerhauptquartier 1941-1944. published by Orbis Verlag, Hamburg, Approved Special Edition in 2000.
Hey guys, I got some interesting feedback on my last article Lets define ownership: a lesson in morality and logic
Now you can go on and read the Jeff’s response and my responses on Jeff’s post, to it; but for the sake of you guys, I thought I’d share this with you too. I am just going to copy past a few lines from Jeff’s response which I believe are his main points, you can read the rest yourself. I believe Jeff made two points.
So the other day I was engaged in an argument with a fellow poster. A nice guy who knew what he was talking about. So we come to the old question about Morality. His responses are in Italics.
I think subjectivity is simply inconsistent so I rejected subjective morality early on. He however was in the opposite corner. In between our conversation, I said “Stealing is wrong”. Now listen to this, he says:
If I define stealing as ‘wrongfully taking what doesn’t belong to you’, then it’s wrong by definition. Then, the problem is reduced to our theory of good or our idea of what makes something right or wrong. And also, it helps to establish what qualifies as ownership.
Yup, that’s Me. Allow me to introduce you to my best friend, Me. As you may have guessed Me is very close to me.
What? you ask.
Well, I don’t know how else to put it. Me is so close to me that we are practically bonded. Me however has a very different set of habits and preferences. Me normally does not like when I interfere with his choices. And that is when Me comes out and does all the things which I would not do normally. In fact, Me planned that I should start bashing people when I like to.I objected strongly, of course. Am I shifting blames? hardly. Me is really out of my control. He has a mind of its own. For example, Me thinks I should spend money like crazy. And to top that he always wants me to spend when I am short on money, I however have to make sure that does not happen.
I have seen this year, some pretty strong reactions regarding “all hallows eve”. Some Christians and I only mean the ones I know or have seen, came up against it pretty aggressively. Their point being that it is a ritual which has its roots in occult and Satan worship and that we as Christians should not participate in “devil worship” and “glorifying Satan”.
The statement was:
“… something is correct if the majority says it’s correct and if society chooses to enforce that rule.”
When I asked him that would he stand by the same rule, if applied to WWII Nazi Germany and the resulting Holocaust?
I was met with silence.
Am I the only one or you also think that there is something completely wrong with this statement?
In fact to be honest, it’s not only, not right, it’s not even wrong, it’s retarded.
