Comparative Religions – Part VIII –
The Nazi-Germanic Religion
Alfred Rosenberg’s Mythos of the Twentieth Century
In Mein Kampf Hitler flatly stated that the man who establishes a new religion has achieved a much greater accomplishment than he who starts a political party, since the former is of much greater impact and enduring influence than the latter. Covertly, it was his dream to bring into being a new racial religion for the German people, one that would supplant the existing Christian religion. Since he never gave the contemplated religion a name, we will call it the Nazi-Germanic Religion, for want of a better term.
When we speak of the Nazi-Germanic Religion we are talking more of an attempt by the Nazi movement to formulate a new racial religion for the German, or Teutonic peoples, rather than the accomplishment of such a task. The Nazi movement itself was not a religious, but a political movement, as Hitler has repeatedly pointed out. It was a political movement for a devastated and beleaguered Germany, forged out of dire desperation and designed to achieve the following: (a) Free Germany from the chains of the Versailles Treaty. (b) Purge Jewish-Marxism from the minds, culture and politics of the German people, and replace it with a Germanic nationalist ideology, (c) Regain German territories lost in World War I, and further, (d) to expand the German living room eastward into the Balkans, the Ukraine and Russia. Hitler has furthermore repeatedly emphasized that the Nazi movement was purely German in nature, and was not for export.
Nevertheless, nascent in the Nazi movement were a number of goals that are now also closely inherent in the CREATIVITY movement. One of them was to implement a Eugenics program for the genetic upgrading of the German people. Another was the formulation of a nationalist Germanic religion that was racial in nature that would, when successful, replace Christianity as the basic religion of the German people. That neither one of these goals was achieved is mainly due to the short life of this dynamic movement that was utterly crushed and destroyed when Germany lost the war in 1945. Nevertheless, these two objectives were uppermost in the minds of the Nazi leaders as future goals to be pursued with the utmost zeal, had they won the war. That they did not win the war and these goals died stillborn, is a major tragedy for the German people and the White as a whole.
It is the attempt to formulate a new racial religion for the Ger-man people that we want to explore in this treatise, what was its nature, what success, if any they had, and what were some of its shortcomings.
The ideological leader of the Nazi movement was clearly acknowledged to be Alfred Rosenberg. No other German writer or thinker of the era, not even Adolf Hitler, had such a broad and comprehensive understanding of the Germanic soul and the Nordic folklore, superstitions and history as did Alfred Rosenberg. His Magnum Opus, The Myth of the Twentieth Century (1930) laid the basis for the formulation of the new Nazi-Germanic Religion of the future, which fitted within the framework of the Nazi movement.
Because of his Jewish sounding name, Alfred Rosenberg was the butt of a good deal of rough humor among his colleagues. He was, however, genuinely German, and the name Rosenberg (rose mountain) was a common German name in the Baltic area, where he was born on January 12, 1893.
He studied at the University of Moscow, where he graduated in Architecture in 1918 at the age of 25. He then returned to Germany and he was appalled and disgusted at the degeneration, chaos and anarchy prevalent in post-war Germany, his native country. He joined the Nazi party in 1919 and was the only member (outside of Hitler) to remain prominent from its earliest beginnings until the very end. He was hanged on October 16, 1946, after being railroaded through the vengeance-bent Talmudic Nuremberg trials along with 21 other high officials of the Nazi hierarchy.
After joining the party, Rosenberg became editor of the party newspaper Volkischer Beobachter in 1921. He wrote a great number of articles and also published some relatively minor books. After Hitler and Rudolf Hess were imprisoned at Landsberg in 1924, Rosenberg inadvertently became the custodian of the then outlawed and inactive Nazi party. After Hitler was released and the party again ] became active, Rosenberg
became head of the foreign policy office \ of the party, and was also in charge of defining party policy with regard to secondary and higher education.
In 1940 he was given the responsibility of setting up the civil administration of the occupied Russian and Baltic territories. However, Rosenberg
was a philosopher and a writer, not a good administrator, and his subordinates, men like Erich Koch and Heinrich Loehse, exercised the real administrative power.
When Rosenberg was brought to trial after the war, the Nuremberg kangaroo court charged him with every conceivable crime, but his real crime was for what he thought and wrote, in particular his racist and anti-Jewish views. It was again a clear case ‘ of brutal Jewish vengeance. He was hanged for the same reason as Haman’s 10 sons were hanged in ‘The Story of Esther. “(See page 132 of Nature’s Eternal Religion.) They were deemed to be dangerous enemies of the Jews. Again the Jews were celebrating their Feast of Purim.
Rosenberg’s Mythos was the most influential of all the Nazi writings of the era in shaping the philosophy and ideology of the Nazi Party, but it was by no means unchallenged. For one thing, many of the party hierarchy had their own religious views and affiliations. Some were Catholics, some were Protestants, some were Atheists, most were indifferent Christians of one kind or another. In any event, most party leaders were not too interested in the religious aspect of their movement, but only in its political pursuit. Whereas Rosenberg was totally loyal to Adolf Hitler, he was in conflict on several major points with others prominent in the top echelon. His feud with Dr. Joseph Goebbels is almost legendary and cannot be reconciled within standard Nationalist Socialist thought. It struck at the very basis of the new state system. Whereas Goebbels
favored a modern, concentrated, industrial state, Rosenberg preferred a rural, medieval, dispersed society, claiming that the best racial stock came from the farm population.
Just what did Rosenberg’s Mythos say? In trying to answer this question we encounter a diverse and confused conglomerate of many religions, many writers and thinkers, a hodge-podge that is not necessarily consistent.
He reaches back into early Hindu literature (because it is “Aryan”) such as, the Rig Veda and Zenda Avesta. (See again our article on Hinduism in Racial Loyalty, Issue No. 30.)
He was highly impressed by the teachings of Lao Tse who lived 2,500 years ago, whose teachings, he says, beautifully embodied the Chinese soul of his era, and Lao Tse’s wisdom is in the longing for solidarity between soul and spirit.
He also read Count Arthur de Gobineau, the Frenchman whose book On the Inequality of Races can be considered the first major work highlighting the superiority of the White Race, but it did little more.
Rosenberg also read Houston Stewart Chamberlain’s Foundations of the Nineteenth Century, which, he claims, “set him at once on fire.” Chamberlain, it should be noted was the son of a British Admiral and the son-in-law of Richard Wagner.
In his Foundations, he lays much of the groundwork for Hitler’s racial ideas. It should also be noted that Chamberlain frankly admits that no one
really knows, cither the geographic or ethnic origins of the “Aryan” race, or if there were two or more such aboriginal races, or if the whole idea is mythical. We Creators consider the whole idea conjectural and immaterial. We believe we should concentrate on the White Race as it exists today, or more correctly, what is left of it. Instead of pontificating endlessly on the “origins” of the “Aryan” race, the concept of which is as
nebulous as is the hypothetical existence of the Continent of Atlantis, we Creators say this: let us get busy on solving the dire problems the White Race finds itself in today. Let us concentrate on the survival, expansion and advancement of the White Race, building a Whiter and Brighter World, and forget all the hocus-pocus of the supposed “Aryan” race.
Rosenberg read all of Nietzsche’s works and was strongly influenced by his philosophy of the coming superman. It should be noted, however, that he never did solve his own problem of how all this was to be achieved or brought about. He was, in fact, both apolitical and anti-racist, and in some of his writings even anti- German. He wrote a number of highly sophisticated books, and, like the genius he was, we find him endlessly pontificating in the loftier stratosphere of higher theory. He talks endlessly about the coming of the superman and how we must subordinate everything to this great and inevitable event. He leads us to assume that this will inevitably come about as a result of Nature’s law of the Survival of the Fittest.
We CREATORS say – not so! History does not bear this out. The Ancient Greeks of Athens and Sparta were far superior to the present-day species of the White Race, but were eventually supplanted by a vastly inferior species in their own territory. So were the superb Romans of Ancient Rome. Just as the mighty chestnut trees were killed by a lowly parasitic fungus 50 years ago, so, too, the parasitic Jew is destroying the unique White Race of today with astounding success. This will not be reversed by just merely allowing Nature to take its course. It will only be reversed by a fanatic, deliberate, well- designed program implemented by the White Race itself, such as is inherent in the CREATIVITY
blueprint, and then executing such a program with zeal and determination.
One major contribution Nietzsche made to the cause was his relentless attack on Christianity, although he never did expose its Jewish origins. However, in attacking Christianity, he was neither the first nor the last to do so, but more brilliant than most.
The great German composer, Richard Wagner, also strongly influenced Rosenberg. He considered Wagner’s Ring der Nibelung cycle of operas as probably the greatest of all musical creations and as a true expression of the Nordic soul. It is an opinion shared by many Germans, including myself.
Rosenberg was much preoccupied with, and strongly influenced by, the Christian bible, since the Germany of his era was still predominantly Christian and the thinking of its people overshadowed by its Judaic philosophy. It is in the attempt to compromise his new Germanic religion within the framework of Christianity that, in my opinion, was Rosenberg’s undoing. But we will have more to say about this later.
Rosenberg was an omnivorous reader and he read many other books that helped shape his thinking, but nothing influenced his outlook as did the chaos, the anarchy, the shameful degeneration of his own native Germany when he came back to it from Moscow in 1918. Leading this shameful degeneration was a passel of Jews, both native and foreign swarming in from abroad. During this era, the Weimar Republic, and
especially Berlin, was regarded as the “cesspool of Europe.” Rosenberg was shocked at what he saw.
As he labored within the ranks of the Nazi Party, the idea grew upon him that what the German people really needed more than anything else was a nationalistic religion of their own. (Let us remember the word “nationalistic.”) He delved into the history, the mores, the superstitions and the folklore of the Germanic tribes (we must remember that Germany never was a nation until Bismarck partially put it together in 1870). He wanted to find the “spiritual roots” of the Germanic “soul” and build upon these roots a new religion for the German people.
One of the most peculiar aspects of Rosenberg’s search for the “Germanic soul” was his strange fascination and obsession with a Dominican priest who lived approximately six hundred years before Rosenberg’s era. His name was Meister (Master) Eckehart. (1260-1328) a Catholic, yet a rebel to the Catholic hierarchy of which he was a part.
What was so great about Master Eckehart and what possible contribution could he make to a present day religion that should concern us? The answer – not much. He, too, (as did Rosenberg) dabbled in the mystics, in metaphysics, and other obscurantist hocus-pocus that serves more to confuse than to clarify either the problem or the solution. Master Eckehart did stress logic, which was fine, but then reverted right back to
talking about God, the need to define God. In so doing he went into a lot of nonsense about the mystical experiences, “flying” to the Godhead through contemplation and a lot of other meaningless double talk. We do not have here the space to review all of his nebulous meanderings, nor do we consider them worthwhile. At the same time Eckehart admits that God is indefinable and unknown. In short, we might as well be talking about Quantity “X”, about which we claim to be enamored silly, but don’t have the foggiest idea what the hell it is we are talking about.
So much for Master Eckehart.
Out of all this conglomerate that also included Lao Tse, Hinduism, Nietzsche, Wagner, Gobineau, Chamberlain, Moses, Jesus Christ, and a host of other parts, what conclusions, what formulations of a new “Germanic soul” religion did Rosenberg finally put together?
Because of his self-defeating approach in trying to compromise the new Germanic religion within the framework of Christianity, his effort, in my opinion, was an utter failure and a pointless pursuit.
He reasoned that since the overwhelming majority of Germans were Christian and had been such for many, many centuries, that somehow, we must salvage the best parts of Christianity and combine it with the mores, folklore and traditions of ancient Teutonic myths. Under this eclectic arrangement, we could have the best parts of both.
Alright, what parts of Christianity should we keep, and what parts should we throw out? Well, the Old Testament, he concluded, was a lurid history of the Jewish peoples, who were definitely un-Aryan and an enemy of the German people. Therefore, it would have to go. So there goes 70 percent of the Christian bible.
Then we come to the New Testament. Is it thoroughly Aryan? Well, no. Jesus was a good fellow, probably even Aryan and had some valuable teachings, which we should preserve. But then there is this fellow Paul, slimy Jew that he was, who got into the act and distorted and perverted Christ’s teachings. Therefore we must sift out all the Pauline teachings and all that is Jewish. What would then be left would be good kernels of Christ’s teachings, who, he claimed, was not a Jew, because there is no substantial evidence to indicate that he was a Jew.
In this latter statement, we CREATORS concur. We agree that there is no evidence that Christ was a Jew, or anything else, since there is not a shred of evidence that he ever existed any more than Santa Claus exists or existed.
But to get back to the New Testament. Since out of its 27 books, 13 were written by Paul, there goes 48 percent of the New Testament along
with all of the Old Testament, and we now have a scant remnant left in which to search for Christ’s good original kernels. But even here, Rosenberg says, we are not on good ground either, because much of this remnant too, has been distorted and polluted by that Jewish villain
Paul, and we have to be extremely careful. What good kernels Rosenberg ever gleaned from the polluted remnants is hard to determine, and Rosenberg does not enlighten us.
We CREATORS take a completely different approach. Why pick through a barrel of rotten apples to see if we might possibly salvage a few bits of good meat in a rotten mess? Why indeed, when we can go out into Nature’s beautiful orchard and pick nice, wholesome apples right off the tree, good ripe fruit, washed by clean morning showers and sparkling red and yellow in the bright afternoon sun- shine? We say — dump the
whole barrel of rotten apples at the nearest garbage dump. Go directly to Nature’s garden and start out fresh. Why pick through a rotten mess of garbage when there is nice fresh fruit to be had for the picking?
The only good end result of Rosenberg’s efforts are basically what he would and could have concluded had he never poked around in the Christian bible, or loaded his book with so much boring mysticism, metaphysics or other hocus-pocus from Master Eckehart, or other mythological sources. Even Nietzsche’s contributions were of little constructive value. The basic philosophy that is of any significance in Mythos is the emphasis of racial values, and, of course, in his book this is confined to the Germanic peoples, or the Nordic, or the “Aryan” race. In this we CREATORS agree wholeheartedly, except that we encompass the whole White Race, Germanic, American, Anglo, French, or otherwise, and seek to unite the total White Race, organize it, polarize it, and smash forever our biological enemies, the parasitic Jew, and go on from there to build a Whiter and Brighter World.
In any event, Rosenberg did not inaugurate a new Germanic religion, and Jewish-Christianity is still as rampant today as it was 50 years ago. In fact, he did not even give a name to the new religion he attempted to construct, but never really brought into meaningful focus.
Had Hitler won the war, his racial philosophy of blood, soil and honor would undoubtedly have expanded into the national religion of the German people, and eventually replaced Christianity. However, Hitler arrived at his racial ideas long before Rosenberg joined him. That Hitler wanted his political philosophy to become a religious philosophy, of that there is little doubt. The fact that the Hitler Youth had regular,
organized meetings of indoctrination, just as did their Christian counterparts, and that they conflicted with church and Sunday schools in their timing, is strong evidence to that effect. This met with hostile opposition from both the Catholic and Protestant churches, but the Nazi Party was easily winning this critical battle for the minds of the youth. Had they only had more time, the Christian church would have withered on the vine and disintegrated within another generation. Hitler supported Rosenberg’s efforts to forge a more comprehensive religious dogma out of his political philosophy. Whereas we CREATORS admire Hitler as the greatest leader the White Race has ever had, and the greatest White Man that ever lived, and agree with his racial ideas, we cannot help but come to the conclusion that as a religion for the White Race as a whole,
Rosenberg’s Mythos was woefully incomplete and left much to be desired.
* * * * *
We CREATORS agree that the idea of the German people having a religion of their own to replace Jewish-Christianity is sound, but that Rosenberg’s approach of trying to compromise it within the framework of German Christianity is contradictory and self-defeating. We believe that Rosenberg and the Nazi movement as a whole would have been far better off if they would have completely rejected Christianity and started anew from a sound realistic basis, such as CREATIVITY has done, building on the Eternal Laws of Nature.
However, several other basic differences remain and we will spell them out in the accompanying “Comparison” box. One of the major differences is that where the Nazi movement was basically nationalistic, political and concerned with the expansion and interests of the German people, the CREATIVITY movement is dedicated to arousing, organizing, and uniting all the White peoples of the world and making this Planet Earth the home of the White Race exclusively, and erasing the conflicting lines of nationality.
* * * * *
The most astounding achievement of the 20th Century has been the unbelievable success with which the Jewish conspiracy has conned the
White Race into betraying its priceless heritage for a mess of garbage.
* * * * *
Half a century ago Hitler succeeded in uniting all the Germans. It is the unswerving goal of the Church of the Creator to arouse, unify and
polarize all the White peoples of this Planet Earth.

The nigger is one of Nature’s most dismal failures.
