Quotation of the day

The National Government will regard it as its first and foremost duty to revive in the nation the spirit of unity and cooperation. It will preserve and defend those basic principles on which our nation has been built. It regards Christianity as the foundation of our national morality, and the family as the basis of national life.

-- Adolph Hitler

(h/t to Evolved and Rational)


  1. [i]It regards Christianity as the foundation of our national morality, and the family as the basis of national life.[/]

    Guilt by association? C'mon BB, you're better than that. That's like those people that try to slam vegetarians because hitler dabbled with vegetarianism himself. Shame, shame.

    I hear he also drove cars and wore pants. Clearly both are symbols of fascism today.

  2. First, I just quote the text; it's up to the reader to draw his own conclusions.

    But just to add a little bit of context, Ben Stein in Expelled argues that Nazism was the direct result of evolution. If the Christians are going to go there... sauce for the goose, innit?

  3. I too thought of "guilt by association" at first, but the quote is actually far more useful: Hitler and the Nazis are often held to be a consequence of atheism. Their own words put lie to that; it is refutable only by a "No True Scotsman" fallacy.

    And PZ, you self-deluded insignificant NUTCASE...


    the *MODEL* of mental health:

    "Look at the ANGLE OF THE KEY....see that, see that...."

    what an idiot this Randi is.....a REAL CRITICAL THINKER....


    to see how we stopped James Randi's fraudulent MILLION DOLLAR PARANORMAL challenge.....

    watch carefully the consequences of Randi's *idea*.....

    For over 40 years James Randi Zwigert (is this even a REAL NAME?) has had total control over who and how the testing was conducted, yet despite all this he has terminated the challenge.

    The ONLY REASON why the challenge was stopped is because he lost and refused to pay.

    Apparently, Randi likes to break the rules when it serves him:

    "14. This prize will continue to be offered until it is awarded. Upon the death of James Randi, the administration of the prize will pass into other hands, and it is intended that it continue in force. "

    Great's over......


    PS: Almost Forgot: Love the IRONY of the *BULLSHIT* sign over Randi's ugly head....

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.
