i just want to clarify - Nietzsche did not forrun the nazi party. in fact, after just having completed all of nietzsche's works, i can assure you that the only reason anything he said influenced the nazis was because it was gravely misinterpreted. in fact, Nietzsche beleived that the Jews were the most superior race in Europe. anyways, the comment was just food for thought. the whole idea that "laws of nature" aren't really there - we just make them up to explain things that we observe. the law "the force of gravity causes an object to fall at 9.8 m/s^2" didn't exist prior to us discovering it; things may have always fell at that speed, but where the ones who turned it into a "law".
