The Supernatural Pseudoscience of Nazi Germany | Religion & PoliticsA Project of the John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics. Kurlander writes about Nazi scientists hunting for death rays, and about a government team that tried to suss out submarines using a map of the Atlantic and a metal cube on a string. SS officers studied runes, compared themselves to a Hindu warrior caste, and traveled to Tibet in the middle of the war, looking for a lost Aryan tribe. The second most powerful Nazi leader, Heinrich Himmler, was an avid reader of the Bhagavad Gita and had a personal astrologer. There were biodynamic farms at Dachau and Auschwitz.
