agree with TheSniperFan...
Because if we killed Hitler (even tough it would be more reasonable to just change his attitude) who knows...maybe americans (or any other country) have got eyes on other people countries and would decide to kill everyone who is not pure american (or the race which started the war) but now with NUKES! :)

btw this thread is somewhat weird...

I don't think there would be nukes at all if there was no Hitler.

Atom splitting was invented/discovered by einstein not hitler and not for the porpose of nukes..so i think there would have been nukes anyway..

Couldn't agree more on this. The fact that at that time he was an innocent child and the only alternative is killing him.

This would open so many possibilities and would be the most beneficial. Just imagine how different things would be if he wasn't the son of an extreme political leader. On another note, where's the poll for baby bush? :P

I'd kidnap baby Hitler and place him like 7 feet to the left. You never know he might have gone home with a jewish family instead.

No because of Battlefield series, Wolfenstein, without which there won't be Doom and Quake, and ballistic missiles.

you cant kill hitler his existance is too important for the world we know and the outcome of him never existing or ww2 never hapening is a total unknown.

But killing him would change nothing, nor would coming back a pinnacle moments in his life to influence him (God only knows how it would go down when he told some one about you and you got recorded early in history). The reason is because if he died early/became an artist, he'd no longer be deemed an important part of history. So by the point in time you were granted your time travel, had he died early/became an artist, you could NOT be sent back to change him because there wouldn't be a reason to, which would result in him remaining the same... And grilling all the poor Jews. Time paradox.

That all depends on how the time travel works. If changing history spawns an new timeline/alternate universe, then yeah, killing him would change things

Simply put it, if everything would stay exactly the same as it is now except for the holocaust then yes, but it most likely wouldn't since most of our technology advances dramatically during total war. So overall no. He pretty much created time travel; I'm from the future so I should know :|..... Hehe.

I would give him away to a Jewish family.

I wouldn't kill him but it would be more interesting to perhaps find out what made him think the way he did and try to prevent it. That way everyone's happy! :D

I know! people are obsessed with this. -_-

I think primarily because it boils down to "would you ever want to change the past?" which the majority of us would at some point in time or another.

Back in the 90's, I met a concentration camp survivor, shook hands with her, she told us she could not even talk to Anne Frank in that camp, because Nazi's had strict orders against their prisoners. I learned about the history of Hitler's growing up. For example, he was rejected to a university by a admin who was Jewish. There was also a Jewish girl who was not interested in young Hitler. I mean no disrespect, but all this history goes on, that him and the other Nazi's were that enraged, especially after the first World War, it was easier to make media propoganda against the Jewish, when they could not immediately take their anger out of their home front to other countries.

It is pretty obvious that religion had nothing to do with it, Nazi's say stuff about the Jewish, but over look the fact, opponent countries can also have the same beliefs. The worst part is, I heard a story about Nazi Soldiers and US Soldiers, taking a break from killing each other to share family Christmas photos. Later though, they have no choice to follow orders to resume the fight. Its all so sad.

Hitler was initially in jail before World War 2, but after old Germany fell apart the first World War, their was not enough money to even hold Hitler, they also desperately needed new leadership, after their last government fell, and wanted to strike back at the rest of the world to make up their ecconomy for losing the first war. You have to realize if World War 1 did not happen, then Hitler may not have gotten where he is. However, it does not stop the fact WWII could have been led by someone else.

Something like that happened during WWI right? When during Christmas or something all the sides stopped fighting each other and played football...?

can't believe this has been going on for this long.

Of course people will naturally want to change the course of events so that the wars and holocaust is avoided.

killing hitler? some may, others might send him to south america. It doesn't really matter. If anyone chooses not to, they are morally corrupt or basing their decision on some time traveling rule they've picked up from a movie.

Aug 21 2011, 7:16am Anchor

The fact is you wouldn't know what the future outcome might be if WWII never happened, for all we know it could result in something far worse.

Aug 21 2011, 11:27am Anchor

WWII would be avoided, this is considering the factors that made WWII greatly involved hitler himself.

The fact is we do know that the future outcome logically dictates that there would not be the second world war.

We do not know the events thereafter. which you could very well say could be the end of times or a haven of times because you wouldn't know what they would be but it would be wrong to not save millions of your fellow man based on that because it's an issue we face every single day. The American/Russian troops didn't stop to think of liberating the concentration camps, even though they didn't know what would happen afterwards. what if one of they people they liberated when on to kill 20 people? or what if he cured cancer?

It's occam's razor, we choose to do these things because they are right and these extremes are bound to almost never happen. it's prophetic and a good thing story writers like to throw in, because it creates a greater risk than there is.

What about the Hippocratic oath? Are doctors morally corrupt if they help gang members who've been shot?

no, not at all. if it's moral to treat one person, it's moral to treat all people. I think I accidentally deleted a sentence but I originally pointed out that killing hitler would be morally wrong, but it would also be morally wrong to not try and alter his path in a non-violent way.
