There is a difference between social conditioning and social engineering. One says it is wrong to do x, so you should not do x. The other says it is wrong to do x in order to employ the taboo and make you want to do x. Jesus also did not believe in eugenics so unless you are equating them to both being jews I really do not see your point.

Even if we were to take creationism as fact, that would still be biological engineering, not social.

During his time eugenics was widely accepted. It took the Nazis to change opinions on the matter. If you look at the rest of his philosophy you would find he is open to change. Here are a few other quotes

To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.

War does not determine who is right - only who is left.

The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge.

Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric.

I would never die for my beliefs because I might be wrong.

That's a great book. I have read it.

Not all conservatives are religious. I've made my views clear before on that, though you weren't around. I agree with a lot of what Hitchens says on religion.

Hitchens is definitely one of my favorite recent intellectuals. He was a conservative; I agree with most of his views period. I miss that dude.

If you enjoy him you may like Bart Ehrman's stuff. Most of Hitchens's rational thoughts on Christianity come from Ehrman's scholarship. That guy knows his bible.

Some of these quotes are stupid but the idea that he was open to change is not far off, it is just what your understanding of the change would be since he was also involved with the frankfurt school, you should read up on the bolshevik revolution sometime.
