men who position themselves as gods

"the many scientists today who study animals and human biology and at the same time promote eugenics. Let this be a lesson to us, that these “men of science” who position themselves as gods — dictating who lives and who dies — look to humanity no differently than how they see bacteria and insects under the microscope."

Ted Shoebat, ponerologist extraordinaire (study of evil) is onto something important here
in this statement, and cites Chesterton about how humans studying humans become inhuman
in order to do so. But it is more than choosing who lives and who dies. and more than studying

while there are diseases and conditions that are inheritable and can be prevented by identifying
carriers and encouraging them to not reproduce, and perhaps genetic surgery can correct a
problem, the fact is that when you get to thinking about control and selective breeding and
stuff like this, you are very rarely able to do so without positioning yourself as god.

And I think that the subtle thrill of this position, and the false sense of safety in an insecure
world you get by such positioning of yourself as god, and therefore as all powerful and therefore \
as invulnerable is a big driver in this eugenics stuff.

in other words, the sin of pride.

there is also a considerable shortsightedness. even if you posit races or breeds of humans
having some qualities, that doesn't establish who is "superior." it depends on superior in
what context for what purpose? what is superior? that is serves some great values, well
what are these values? are they necessarily consistent with Godly values? are they
even consistent with survival and accomplishment outside of a context that genetics
can't control?

the much glorified western European civilization is not the result of bloodlines but of
Christian influenced culture. the original population was a pack of half naked brawling short
sighted seekers of personal glory with shifting alliances constantly and looking to kill
and die for little else. not exactly accomplishing anything. While the euro eugenicist
may think of black Africans and far southeast Asians as naked head hunters that is exactly
what the original European warrior culture was.

so we got a mix of pride and incompetence drawing in part on dishonesty about history
of one's own ancestry. if it is admitted, the history, and that the ultimate purpose of wars
of white supremacy is to restore the wild "innocent" naked barbarian society untinged
by semitic and other influences, this means that ultimately you would be working to
make a society where all the vaunted cultural and scientific developments that supposedly
set Aryan euros apart from all else would be thrown away.

and these accomplishments are not without precedent elsewhere.
