Sill more on Hitler the creationist

Hitler used creationist arguments that creationists adore.

From 'Mein Kampf' Volume 1 Chapter 11

'The consequence of this racial purity, universally valid in Nature, is not only the sharp outward delimitation of the various races, but their uniform character in themselves. The fox is always a fox, the goose a goose, the tiger a tiger, etc., and the difference can lie at most in the varying measure of force, strength, intelligence, dexterity, endurance, etc., of the individual specimens. But you will never find a fox who in his inner attitude might, for example, show humanitarian tendencies toward geese, as similarly there is no cat with a friendly inclination toward mice.'

"'Das, was der Mensch von dem Tier voraushat, der veilleicht wunderbarste Beweis fuer die Ueberlegenheit des Menschen ist, dass er begriffen hat, dass es eine Schoepferkraft geben muss.'"

Steve, can you please type in the next few relevant sentences?

Man braucht nur durch ein Teleskop oder durch ein Mikroskop zu sehen: Da erkennt man, dass der Mensch die Faehigkeit hat, diese Gesetze zu begreifen.

Da muss man aber doch demuetig werden. Wird diese Schoepferkraft mt einem Fetisch identifiziert, dann bricht die Gottesvorstellung zusammen, wenn der Fetsich versagt.

Man has only to look through a telescope or a microscope: Man then recognises, that mankind has the capability to comprehend these laws.

But man must be humble.

If this creative power is identified with an idol, then the picture of God will collapse, once the idol fails.

Thanks, it's just I had only the Russian version. The language eerily reminds the "A Designer" rhetoric.
