God the Good Shepherd

If there is a God in the world, why are there so many unbelievers? Why are there so many lost sheep?

Matthew 18 says "What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? 13 And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. 14 In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.:

If God is a good shepherd, who actively seeks out lost sheep, why are there so many lost sheep in the world?

Of course, a truly good shepherd says 'Sheep have minds of their own', 'I have left enough evidence for the sheep to find its own way back', or 'The sheep was never in my flock anyway', or 'That sheep was actually a goat'

Hitler the Darwinist?

Of course, it should be realised that Hitler was a nut.

In his table talk entry for 25/1/1942, Hitler says he favours theories that about 10,000 years ago a catastrophe happened between the Moon and the Earth, with floods and fires , causing a calamitous collapse of the golden civilisations which existed then, and leaving just a few people alive on the world, who were able to find higher ground. (Hitler also claims the Bible contains a garbled recollection of this event)

He thinks that just before this time, there might have been superior beings to us, as they would not have had to cope with the earth's atmospheric pressure.

He thinks religions contain a memory of this event and came into being because of it.

Does this exposition of the development of the human race sound like Darwin's theory?
