of course it was bad interpretation. "Survival of the fittest" and "selective breeding" are not eugenics (which was a popular idea in the US and other places before hitler). Darwinism, as you want to call it as a derogatory term, does not say anywhere that you exterminate a particular population. Hitler supporters want to call it Darwinism rather than the antisemitic genocide that it was. Your view of darwinism is about as credible as creationism.

That should be Catholics, and the Catholics have a long history of being antisemitic which they are slowly trying to change and its not just Germany. Nationalism is nasty in all countries being its teaches you to mistrust all others who are not like you, a bit like a lessor nazi ideal. Hitler was a cetainly a Catholic based Demagoge, and a despote, ofc, all the nazi uniforms had "God with us" on them so he thought he was doing Gods work

" thus often 'love your neighbour', usually defining 'neighbour' in the extensive way that Jesus offers in the Parable of the Good Samaritan." i think you'll find that sort of sentiment is thousands of years older than christianity. Don't fall into the error of conflating the horrors of Stalin and Mao as being done in the name of atheism, because they didn't, whereas a lot the horrors perpetrated by the religious are done in the name of religion

"Religion is a fundamental construct of western civilization. " - bollox, its a construct of the whole world's ignorance prior to science being able to explain things like thunder. You fell into the trap of thinking that the Abrahamic religions are the only ignorance belief systems, such arrogance

" Atheist, by virtue of the first premise, holds that the stories, anecdotes, and first-hand accounts of divine beings are wrong due to error or deception." almost agree with that but i'd add "self-deception" All the TV evangelists seem to proudly own the "deception" tag
