"furriner.")

    Well, neither did the Nazis, but they did look down on non-Aryans from
a framework which was not religious though it might arguably be called
messianic.  I think the issue of whether religion is involved is a red
herring. 

    Speaking of which, did you ever get a chance to talk to Arno Mayer?

    So is berating everyone who is a member of a specific ethnic group,
Jose (to steal a line from Pat Buchanan).  And the unfortunate fact is
that if one declares America to be the most wonderful nation on earth,
there is an inescapable logical corollary that all other nations are less
wonderful.  Now, I leave it to you to decide whether there is a difference
between calling someone not as good as you and berating them.

    When it is your miserable reading comprehension and reasoning skills

testimony and physical law where none in fact exists, it is you that have
the problem with being thick.

    Tell us again how "after a few minutes the screaming stopped" can be
interpreted to mean that the screaming went on for "tens of minutes."

    Although superscientist Giwer may scoff at claims of the paranormal, I
have been struck by another psychic revelation.

    I predict you will be waiting a very, very, very, very, very long
time.

    It really doesn't matter.  Even if you allow that he made a mistake,
he drew a completely invalid and unwarranted conclusion from your words -
there is no reason to assume that Dessau was the only Zyklon plant in
existence.  And he has done this sort of thing frequently.  Either he is a
baldfaced liar, or he is a delusional and illiterate idiot who cannot read
and understand what is written, and lacks the critical thinking skills he
claims to possess.  In either case he has no useful contribution to make
to any discussion.

    Telnet to netcom.com, login as guest with no password, read the
section on newsfeeds.

    Of course, it doesn't take a 163 IQ to realize that Mr. Giwer could
simply have tried to look at the group himself through his own newsreader.
Instead he desperately tries to deceive people into thinking I _might_ be
wrong and he _might_ not have access to the group.  Of course, he cannot
come out and say so directly, because there are too many other Netcom
subscribers who will know he is a liar if he does.

    Anyone can log in to Netcom as user 'guest' and see what I saw.  If
Netcom is lying that is not my fault.

    But I know they are not lying about misc.taxes.  Because anyone can
also scan DejaNews and see misc.taxes articles posted _from_ Netcom, as I
saw when I posted the article in that newsgroup.  That is another reason I
could know that Netcom carries the group, and how even a non-Netcom
subscriber can know that Mr. Giwer is being a deliberately deceitful
troll.  Too bad a mere 163 IQ type was not able to figure this out.

    But then, I must observe once again that Mr. Giwer has not tried to
come out and claim outright that misc.taxes is _not_ carried on his ISP.

    This is actually very good.  I am actually pleased to see there are
some lies Mr. Giwer is not willing to tell.  He is, however, dishonest
enough to try to deceive people as long as he can have "plausible
deniability."  Unfortunately he tripped up below:


>You posted it in that
>conference without notification of posting it in that conference

    This, after I wrote the text above:

>>>>    I posted a factual discussion of the issues in misc.taxes some time
>>>>ago, with a note posted here that I had done so.


    For confirmation that I am telling the truth about posting a pointer
to the other article, see DejaNews URL

http://xp4.dejanews.com/getdoc.xp?recnum=4297570&server=dnserver.dbapr
          
The URL of the misc.taxes article itself is

http://xp4.dejanews.com/getdoc.xp?recnum=4295424&server=dnserver.dbapr


>and then make reference to it long after the fact when it would
>have scrolled off anyway.  

    How many lies will the Giwer-troll try to tell in one post?

    See the posts pointed to by the two URLs were made the same day.  See
that the Giwer-troll is a baldfaced liar.


>	But rather than indulge in this diversion, why not post it here?
>Or is Nizkor off topic?

    It is the Giwer-troll who is engaging in diversion and deception.

    It was posted.  It can be found on DejaNews as proved by the URL I
gave.  A notification that it was posted in misc.taxes was posted to this
group on the same day, again proved by the other URL I gave.  The dates
can be compared, and anyone can see that the Giwer-troll is simply lying
through his teeth when he says that I did not provide notification until
after it would have scrolled off.


    I am invoking the Giwer Rule.  The Giwer rule is that when asked for a
repost the proper response is:

    "Read everything which is posted.  If you are having trouble with your
newsfeed, get a new provider." 

    After all, the Giwer-troll has said that he does not follow rules
which apply to only one person.  And I would not want to make a liar out
of him.  Besides, he is doing such a good job of that himself.

    (Actually, if I were following the Giwer Rule to the letter, I would
not provide the DejaNews URLs I have given above.  The Giwer-troll never
does.)

    I observe that Gordon McFee, the person accused by Inspector Gadget as
being both Marduk the article forger and the nose-honking criminal
telephone harrasser, remains at large over a month since the Giwer-troll
publicly named him.  The Giwer-troll was lying about that too.

    I also observe that the Giwer-troll still has not accepted my wager
that I could prove his Israeli mailbombing could have been done without
password cracking by anyone with full Internet access.  This is despite
the fact that he said he was confident in his conclusion that I was making
it up.  Looks like Giwer was the one making things up about his
confidence in his own words.  Another lie, in other words.

    Ms. Rimland, the Nizkor website is open for your inspection even if you 
are not in communication with Mr. McCarthy.  Why not look at it to check 
your facts and see if there is anything you would call "making hay" before 
you make unfounded speculations and accusations?  There certainly has been 
no loud crowing in alt.revisionism.

    Ms. Rimland, paper self-combusts once it is ignited.  All this means
is that it requires an initial application of energy to bring the object
to ignition temperature, but once ignited, it produces enough energy to
sustain the reaction.  Perhaps a better term would be "self-sustaining
burn."  You cannot simply laugh this off.  Since it works for paper, you
actually have to prove or disprove this for a body.  Unless your
engineering student thinks that paper will solve the world's energy
crisis....

    In other words, don't address the scientific arguments?  Laugh and

    Not true.  Whoever makes a claim bears the burden of proof.

    That is quite wrong and quite intellectually dishonest.  _All_

    Well, let's see if I can't shed a little light on the subject of

    Well, where does that young engineering graduate get his data from? 
Has he cremated a corpse?  If he has no acceptable source of data, his
assertion is worthless and mentioning that he is an engineering graduate
is a fallacious appeal to authority.  He is not exempt from providing a 
checkable source for his assertion unless he claims he has performed the 
experiment personally.

    Ms. Rimland, either you do not understand the issues, or you are being
disingenuous.  The same is true of your anonymous young engineering
graduate.  Paper does not burst into flame on its own, but it burns
without further heating once it is ignited.  That is all that Jamie is
claiming for corpses.  Note that you (correctly) have Jamie saying "once
the fire is started" - which ought to tell any intelligent and literate
speaker of English that the crack about cadavers bursting into flame on
their own is at best the work of an illiterate and at worst the work of
someone deliberately trying to mislead people.

    There is a difference between the first corpse and the next corpse.
It is not only the body which must be heated; the oven itself must be 
brought up to operating temperature - it has mass and the laws of 
thermodynamics say that it too will draw off some of the heat energy rather 
than permitting it all to be directed into the body.  While 300kg of coke 
may be required to heat a cold crematory oven to the ignition temperature of 
a body, the oven is designed to retain heat and so it does not require an 
additional 300kg to burn the next body if the oven is not cooled down 
between cremations.  Additional fuel is required only to make up for heat 
loss.  So it will take far less than 300kg to burn the second body if the 
oven is not cooled down.

    I know, Lagace says that the ovens must be cooled down.  But he is not a 
designer of ovens, only a user.  As will be shown below, there is now
expert evidence on the table challenging Lagace's assertion.  And the 
experts had no idea they were supporting any Holocaust "religion" when they 
gave their accounts - they were just talking to a newspaper reporter about 
cremation in general.


>By McCarthy's own assertion, he and his people at Nizkor "have no
>credibility to lose". They have no expertise in anything.

    Neither do you.  And there are some people who have contributed 
information who _do_ have some credentials.  E.g., Richard Green in 
chemistry (a doctoral student), and Scott Mullins in engineering.

    An interesting double-bind.  But the point was never to boast.  That is

    Sorry, but there is much more to say.  Since you cannot be bothered to 
wallow in the mud (as you put it), you never saw the following article I 
posted.  It was taken from something which appeared in my local free weekly 
paper.  It was about cremation, not the Holocaust, and the experts in it 
were not (as far as they knew) engaged in defending any Holocaust "myths."  
Yet they do indeed contradict all of your alleged experts.  I have made some 
enhancements in the footnotes (which are all mine) since I first posted the 
excerpts.




     Richard Rapp stands alongside a waist-high gurney and examines its 
cargo: a human body zipped snugly into a white plastic bag and lying on a 
thin slab of plywood.  The gurney stands next to a 3-foot-square stainless 
steel door.  The door is set in the wall of an otherwise empty classroom-
size room.  The room is painted yellow and bathed in fluorescent light.

     Rapp unzips the bag several inches an looks at the body.  It is a 
wizened, old white man.  Rapp rezips the bag.  Then he turns to his nephew, 
Robert Rapp, who wears a white lab coat and heavy-duty suede gloves that 
come halfway up his forearms.

     "Is the paperwork done?" Rapp asks.

     "Yeah," Robert responds.

     "OK, then."

     Rapp steps around the gurney and punches a button on the control panel 
by the door.  The steel hatch rises at the head of the gurney.  There is a 
quiet roar, and a wave of heat washes over the Rapps and their charge.  The 
open door reveals a deep, narrow hearth that glows bright orange through the 
heat-smeared air.

     "Ready?" Rapp asks his nephew.

     Robert nods, places his hand on the edge of the plywood at the foot of 
the body, and shoves.  The sheet of wood carries its load off the gurney and 
into the chamber.  Rapp shuts the door with another punch of a button.  He 
glances at the gauges beside the door and walks away.  Robert wheels the 
gurney toward a door leading to the back room, where yet another corpse 
awaits its final disposition.

     So begins another burn-to-urn cycle in the sacred commerce conducted by 
Chesapeake Crematory Inc. (CCI) of Beltsville, one of the Washington area's 
largest cremation facilities.  Here, in a dreary landscape of warehouses and 
distributorships, Rapp and his nephew performed some 900 cremations in 1995.  
This year they will do even more.  On this bright, bitter-cold February day 
alone, CCI incinerated five bodies.[1]

[...]

     The centerpiece of any crematory is, of course, the cremation oven, or 
"retort."  CCI's retort is a Phoenix II, the 17-ton state-of-the-art product 
>from  B&L Cremation Systems Inc. of Clearwater, Fla., one of a half-dozen 
U.S. crematory oven manufacturers.  The Phoenix II runs about $85,000.

     The retort's primary chamber, currently occupied by Mr. James' body, is 
96 inches long, 38 inches wide, and 29 inches high.  That is more than ample 
to accommodate a very large person and casket.  The chamber's walls and 
ceiling are lined with heat-reflecting ceramic tiles.  The floor, or hearth, 
is constructed from alumina silica that can withstand temperatures up to 
3,500 degrees Fahrenheit.  Embedded in the ceiling, right above where the 
average corpse's chest comes to rest, is a giant blowtorch nozzle.  It is 
known in the trade as the "flame port."

     As he once again checks the gauges on the retort, Rapp observes that
this third cremation of the day is far different from the first.  Human
flesh requires extended exposure to 1,400 degrees Fahrenheit in order to
ignite.[2]  For the first cremation of the day, when the retort is just
warming up, Rapp needs to use the flame port.  It blasts the body with a
2,800 -degree gush of fire. 

     But by the time Mr. James' body enters the retort, the air in the 
primary chamber is roiling well above 1,400 degrees.  Shortly after the door 
comes down, his body is aflame.[3]

     Here is how it happens: The human body, which is 85 percent water, 
burns outside to inside in a rapid cycle of layer-by-layer dehydration and 
ignition.  The heat dries out the skin; the dry skin ignites.  That fire 
dries out the next layer of muscle and fat, which then ignites.  And so on, 
until the internal organs are consumed.

     According to B&L President Steve Looker, who designed the Phoenix II,
the average body gives off a modest 1,000 Btu per pound of meat (burning
wood, by comparison, gives off 6,000 Btu).[4] But an extremely obese
corpse - like the one Rapp recently had to burn in its casket because it
was wedged in so tightly - can run to 17,000 Btu.  "That's like burning
kerosene,"  says Looker.  The Phoenix II takes these differences into
account and carefully regulates the amount of oxygen entering the retort
to ensure a controlled, efficient burn.

[...]

     The Romans also practiced cremation.  But as with the Greeks, only 
members of the wealthier classes could afford a private cremation.  Indeed, 
calling a fellow Roman's ancestors "half-burned" was a grievous insult that 
implied that those forebears had been cremated on one of the public mass 
pyres used to dispose of the poor.[5]

[...]

     Ninety minutes into the burn cycle, Rapp checks on the corpse's 
progress.  He raises the retort's door about 10 inches and peers into the 
hearth.  It looks like a giant fireplace at the end of a cozy night.  There 
are no flames, but the chamber bed glows orange.  Small chunks of whitish-
gray debris lie in the oven.  A particularly large clump sits about halfway 
back, just about where the hip was.  Rapp closes the door and heads into the 
storeroom to take care of a couple of things while the retort finishes the 
job.  (According to Looker, much of the burn time is devoted to breaking 
down and whitening the bones, because "people expect nice white 
remains.")[6] 

[...]

     In 1983, Rapp hung out his shingle at 18th and T Streets NW.  Five
years later, he moved the operation to Silver Spring as he could operate
his own crematory.  But shortly after he opened the new location, a
neighbor began an aggressive campaign to shut him down.  In his drumbeat
of complaints to Montgomery County officials, the man claimed that Rapp's
oven was emitting nauseating smells and billows of black smoke.  County
inspectors found no evidence to support these allegations.[7] In fact, the
crematory was never cited for any sort of operating violation. 
Nevertheless, after spending $100,000 on legal fees without resolving the
feud, Rapp agreed in 1994 to relocate the crematory.

     The bitterness still lingers in Rapp.  Despite his personal feelings 
about the importance of openness, he says he understands why many 
crematories prefer a low profile.  And when the topic of complaints about 
"the smell" come up, an uncharacteristic harshness creeps into his voice.  
Such smells, he says, are in people's minds, not in their noses.  "This is 
1996, not the turn of the century," he says, almost sneeringly.  "With 
today's technology, there really isn't much odor."[8] [...]

     When the burn cycle is complete, Rapp switches off the retort, walks 
through the storeroom, and turns into the area that houses the back end of 
the retort.  His nephew stands ready with a long-handled tool that looks 
like a metal squeegee.  At Rapp's signal, Robert opens the back door of the 
retort and vigorously rakes the silvery debris into a chute that leads down 
to a stainless steel bin.  The material makes a chinking sound as it moves - 
like embers being stirred in a fireplace.  After two hours, this is what 
is left of a human body: five to seven pounds of remains, depending on bone 
structure. 

[...]

     Rapp points out several clearly identifiable bones among the cooling 
chips and chunks.  A piece of hip.  An 8-inch strip - probably a radius or 
ulna.  A ball that once fit a hip or shoulder.  In fact, the entire skeleton 
is there.  Bones are largely calcium, which burns only after lengthy 
exposure to temperatures much higher than those in the Phoenix II.[9]

[...]

     You can't give mourners bone fragments, so Robert hoists the bin and 
gently pours its contents into the pulverizer.  The pulverizer resembles a 
small, battered lift-top freezer.  A metal-screen drum slightly larger than 
a paint can sits inside.  Robert lowers the lid and hits a switch.  The 
pulverizer will reduce the chunky remains into a pile of matter with the 
look and consistency of ground oyster shells.

     "We've got another [pulverizer] that will take the [remains] down to 
something with the texture of sand, if that's what people want," says Rapp.

     It is a remarkably efficient system: a 200-pound body reduced to an 
easily handled heap of base elements in just over two hours.[10] [...]

Notes:

[1]Obviously they never heard that they could only do three or four or else 
they'd damage their oven.  After all, Lagace _is_ an expert.

[2]The article does not specify the scale; since it is for an American 
audience I presume the 1,400 degrees refers to Fahrenheit.  Mattogno claims 
that older ovens worked at only 800 degrees C, yet they seemed to do the 
job - but then, that would translate to about 1,400 Fahrenheit.

[3]Note that the writer actually contradicts himself here - in the paragraph 
before, he said that "extended exposure" was required.  Yet in the very next 
paragraph, he says that the body is aflame shortly after the door comes 
down.  But the more important point is that the article firmly establishes 
that the first cremation is different - that the flame port is used for the 
first one, but it does not have to be used for the third one because the 
oven is up to temperature.  For those who missed it, this means that the 
oven was NOT cooled down (contradicting Lagace).

[4]1,000 BTU per pound is modest, and I know that a newspaper article is 
not a technical journal, but I read this as saying that the burn _is_ self-
sustaining provided that the body is kept in an insulated environment.  Once 
the burn is activated, there is a net energy gain from each pound of flesh, 
even lean flesh.  Please ask your engineering student to stop laughing and 
start providing some rebuttal data. 

[5]Contradicting the revisionist assertion that bodies could not have been 
burned on mass pyres at Birkenau because such things could not have had 
enough oxygen.

[6]I contacted Mr. Looker by phone.  I asked him what the maximum
throughput would be if the only concern were burning as fast as possible -
say, in case of plague.  He said one average adult body per hour.  The
rating is really in terms of mass - he said ovens vary from about 100 to
200 lbs per hour.  (His model is top-of-the-line, but of course you'd
expect him to say that.) He agreed it would be quite possible to burn two
undersized and emaciated women or 3-4 small children in the same period of
time.  Without any prompting from me, he mentioned in passing that older
crematoria were quite capable of shooting out flames if overloaded, a
phenomenon he called a "candle."  True, he did not say thirty feet; his
figure was "only" eight to ten feet.  His own product is designed to avoid
this.  Even so, he allowed that if he actively tried for it, there is a
decent chance he could produce the effect as well.  This contradicts the 
revisionist "expert" claim that flames cannot shoot out of crematorium 
chimneys.

[7]Were I a "scholar" in the mold of Mark Weber or Greg Raven, I would of 
course silently snip out this sentence.

[8]In this statement I see an implication that earlier technology might 
indeed give off smoke and odor.

[9]This was news to Matt Giwer.

[10]But see note [6] above.

    Please identify this "Politburo," Ms. Rimland.  Name names.  I have not 
encountered it.  I have a fairly simple definition of heinous denial which 
clearly establishes the difference between it and legitimate revisionism.  
It is simply this: denial uses selective reading of evidence, rejects all 
inconvenient eyewitness testimony and documents as being lies and forgeries 
while embracing any convenient testimony (does Ernst still sell the 
Lachout Document video?), and uses selective quotation and distortion of 
evidence in its arguments.  Legitimate revisionism follows intellectually 
honest methods of inquiry.

>of Exterminationism.

    What is missing from this description is that the debate must be 
conducted using consistent and intellectually honest rules of evidence and 
standards of proof.  In my experience that has been missing from what you 
call "Revisionism."  Greg Raven has evaded all attempts to pin him down on 
standard of proof.  Raven and Mark Weber have made arguments based on 
deceptive quotes out of context.  So has Friedrich Berg - he ignored some 
very inconvenient sections of the same technical papers he used as his 
sources.  Robert Faurisson gave a very dishonest picture of the nature of 
the ballpoint pen markings in the diary of Anne Frank.  Fred Leuchter out-
and-out lied about his qualifications, and made up ludicrous and fanciful 
explanations of documents such as the nature of the gas testers.  
(Apparently he did not see the letter on Topf stationery, with signatures 
and enough stamps to send an elephant by airmail, which expressly mentioned 
_cyanide_ detectors for the Kremas, where Leuchter declared cyanide was too 
dangerous to use due to the risk of explosion.)  The Lachout Document was 
offered as evidence without being subjected to the same standard of 
scrutiny and forensic testing demanded by "revisionists" for any document 
supporting the orthodox history of the Holocaust.  And so on. 

    Inconvenient documents are simply read out of the record with a naked 
assertion of "Soviet forgery!"  No forensic testing is offered, even for 
documents which bear signatures (such as the letter from Bischoff to 
Kammler, file copy signed by Pollock, mentioning a "Vergasungskeller.").

    However, it seems to come from a selective reading of the evidence.

    This I dispute, at least with respect to specific individuals I have 
encountered.  When cogent rebuttal arguments and evidence have been offered, 
they did not respond, yet later repeated the same challenged arguments 
without offering any counter-rebuttal.  This is not intellectually honest, 
and it also does not seem consistent with the assertion made above.


>Fifty years after the alleged event, we are still awaiting such proofs. . ."

    One thing I have often encountered in "Revisionist" argumentation is 
that it applies the standards of a courtroom to the Holocaust, and argues 
like a defense lawyer, not a historian.  My response is this: what standard 
of proof is required, and do you require that same standard for other 
historical events, such as Stalin's crimes? 


>I couldn't have said it better myself!

    I would be most interested in your answer to the previous question,
Ms.  Rimland, especially considering your recent Zundelgram about Russian
atrocities against Germans.

    That has always been your fantasy.  And of course your reading
comprehension has often failed you into claiming that something was said
which is not physically possible, when in fact no such thing had been
said.  And of course your knowledge has also failed you frequently.

    Nice try at trying to get people to misread my statement.  You lied
about the history of the United Nations discussion.  You lied about the
history of the "bones burn" discussion.  You lied about having information
>from  Colin McGregor that Gordon McFee was Marduk.  You lied about Gordon
McFee being the one who made crank phone calls to you.  You lied about
Gordon McFee responding "Internet Direct" in a post where you wrote
"Internet Indirect" - he always used the same name you did.  You lied
about someone changing the post - DejaNews has the exchange archived.  You
lied about being confident that I was making up my explanation about your
mailbombing - or are you going to accept my wager, gutless wonder?  You
lied about not following rules that apply only to you - as you well know,
you insist that everyone else should repost things that you missed, but
you have a special rule for yourself and yourself alone that you have no
obligation to provide proof of your own claims. 

    The evidence that you are a liar grows stronger with every word you
write.

    To use a very common literary device of using an especially striking

    Do you really feel that someone who was lucky enough to have an
inheritance from a rich uncle deserves any special admiration for being

    When you knock off the one-sided application of the Giwer rule, then
you will have the right to talk about intellectual honesty.  (The Giwer
rule is this: anything Matt Giwer claims not to have seen must be reposted
or the person mentioning it is called a liar.  But anything anyone else
claims not to have seen, even if it cannot be found on DejaNews, elicits
the response to read everything that is posted and change providers if
there is a newsfeed problem.  Anything Matt Giwer wants proof of must be
supported except that books are rejected as appeals to authority. 
Anything Matt Giwer wants to claim need not be supported by anything
except Matt Giwer's big mouth and BS in physics, which magically becomes
not an appeal to authority.)

    And just think, this comment comes from the man who claimed that a 
testimony that said, "after a few minutes there was silence" really meant
that the screaming went on for "tens of minutes."

    I think Mr. Giwer does know that words mean things; he just has some
very strange ideas about what the words _do_ mean.  When they are words at
all, of course - not even my Oxford English Dictionary contains the word
"paupacy."

    It is truly amazing how much concentrated error can reside in one
person.  A brainless troller can drop his line in a bathtub.  Smart fish
can say, "Look!  Some dumb troller is dropping an obvious piece of bait
here!" 

    Let's see if the Giwer-troll is as stupid a troller as I think he is.

    That was Dr. Bilik.  The only post I saw from him on the subject did
not retract the claim, it _reaffirmed_ it.  Either quote the words that
you claim are a retraction, and give the article ID and date (or DejaNews
URL), or admit that you are an illiterate or a liar.

    Nice mantra.  When you can present evidence from the DejaNews archives
coupled with a logical argument which does not lie about the meaning of
the words used, do please be sure to get back to me.

    Well, let's revisit some history.

    There was Tom Moran's claim that the Jews had got a court to declare
the menorah a secular symbol.  After telling us to look in the Los Angeles
Times index for proof, someone finally discovered a court case, Capitol
Square v. Pinnette, which sort of resembled the case if you ignore the
fact that:

	- The court REJECTED the argument that the menorah was a
	  secular symbol, and
	- The group whose actions started the legal ball rolling
	  was the KKK.

    There was Tom Moran's claim that Schindler's List flopped.  No matter
what sort of evidence anyone put forth, Tom Moran would say, "Schindler's
List was a flop.  Splat."

    There was the time Tom Moran challenged Yale Edeiken to prove that Tom
Moran was an anti-semite.  When Yale seriously proposed to do just that,
before a member of the American Arbitration Association, if Tom would
agree that the loser paid all costs, Tom Moran ran away.

    There is, of course, more.

    If you call that winning, I for one don't call the prize worthwhile.

    I don't know, Tommy.  But here's a question for you.

    What should one make of it if someone makes charges of anti-Semitism,
neo-Nazism and/or racism, and the person charged calls for an argument for
proof according to courtroom standards, and the charger replies, "Sure!  I
will do so in front of the American Arbitration Association if you agree
to pay all costs if I win the case - I will pay all costs if I lose," and
the person calling for proof does not accept the challenge?

    What would that make the person who asked for proof, Tommy? 

    Do you remember the name of the person who demanded proof to courtroom
standards but then ran away when Yale Edeiken offered to do just that?
Who was that, Tommy?  Do you need some help?

    This is a wonderful example of a content-free statement based on false
assumptions, unstated assumptions, and handwaving.  First false assumption
is that all six million Jews were killed by gassing.  No historian has
ever asserted that - e.g., about a million were accounted for by shooting
in the Einsatzgruppen reports, and many more were done for by disease. 
Unstated assumption #1 is the number of gas chambers to be used in this
gassing.  I am willing to bet he is making the false assumption that all
gassing would be in the Birkenau gas chambers - ignoring the gassing vans
and the three Reinhard camps.  Another unstated assumption is how long a
single gassing would take.  I seem to recall that Leuchter ignored the
ventilation system and declared that it would take a week to exhaust the
underground gas chambers.


>*       The "lampshades" and "soap" confabulations have now been put to
>rest forever

    Repeating this over and over again doesn't make it so.

    Commercial production of soap I agree, though there is the question of
whether anyone ever tried it on an experimental basis (perhaps even
prompted by the rumors, at a time when Germany was feeling the raw
materials pinch).  In fact, I have pointed out that the story of the
experiment, which is the only one from people who claim to be firsthand
participants, directly refutes the rumors of commercial mass production.
(Why do experiments when you already know how to do it commercially?)

    As for lampshades, however, not so.  Despite revisionist claims that
they were goatskin, that was based on a recollection by Clay long after
the fact.  There is a U. S. army pathology report on samples of tanned
skin from Buchenwald which concludes that they were made from human skin. 
I would say that a pathologist's report at the time trumps an aged
general's recollection two decades later.  Interesting too that
revisionists suddenly decide that contrary to everything they had said
about gas chambers, for lampshades they present a non-expert
after-the-fact witness as superior to a contemporary report by a technical
expert.  Hypocrisy?  You decide.

    That being said, I have also pointed out that lampshades were not Nazi
policy, but the activity at one camp by a commandant so corrupt and brutal
that he was executed by the SS itself.

    I thought Ms. Rimland didn't like name-calling.  Is it puerile to
accept a U.  S. Army pathology report over the word of a layman twenty
years after the fact?

    In consumer protection laws this is called bait-and-switch.  It is not
impossible to produce a replica of a homicidal gas chamber - though the
cost would be prohibitive for the Auschwitz models.  However, "bringing
one across" implies getting an _authentic_ one.  Does the Adelaide
Institute seriously propose that the USHMM dig up Leichenkeller I of Krema
II (as if the Auschwitz Museum would allow it) and ship it across the sea?

    I note that even David Cole has accepted that there was an authentic
homicidal gas chamber (albeit not for extermination purposes) at
Natzweiler.  But that too is not available for shipment to the US.  If a
foreign museum wanted an authentic Mount Rushmore visage, they would
similarly find them all unavailable.  Playing off the example above, it is
like a Vatican without the True Cross.

    What's that?  You say the Vatican doesn't have the True Cross?

    Does that make Jesus a hoax, Ms. Rimland?

    Yes.  We call that the minutes of the board and executive committee
meetings and the minutes of the semiannual general membership meeting.  In
theory they are available to the membership for inspection, though I have
yet to see anyone make such a request other than an officer or board
member trying to remember just what was decided on a particular issue. 
Also the Rabbi's column and the President's Message in the newsletter.  It
is all on disk.  Very Nazi-like of us, I'm sure you'll agree.

    It is good to see Mr. Giwer agrees that your his that the plant was

expected that nobody will correct Mr. Van Alstine on a claim which even
Mr. Giwer agrees is correct.  But I fail to see how Mr. Giwer claims that
Mr. Van Alstine did not read Mr. Giwer's lie.

    It means more than that.  It means that Matt Giwer is a hypocritical
troll who will yell that the person making the claim bears the burden of
proof except when it is Matt Giwer making the claim.  Then suddenly the
burden of proof shifts.  And of course Mr. Giwer is not hesitant to

    Here is a deconstruction of a classic troll. 

    Mark Van Alstine quoted a passage from Hilberg which said that an 
ordinary SS installation received Zyklon once every six months, but due 
to its short shelf life, Auschwitz got it every six weeks.

    Giwer then said that delousing Zyklon lasts six months but homicidal 
Zyklon lasts six weeks.

    What Giwer picked up on was that Hilberg made a logical error.  It is
true that Zyklon has a short shelf life - three months.  It is true that
Auschwitz received it every six weeks.  Hilberg came up with a post-hoc
relationship between the two facts.  While the conclusion _may_
accidentally be true, it is not true of necessity.  There is a concept
known as economic order quantity, a mathematical formula which factors in
price, the overhead involved in an order, usage rate, storage costs, and
interest rates to arrive at the order quantity which gives the lowest
per-unit cost taking into account such things as the tradeoff between the
extra warehousing costs and lost interest on money tied up in inventory
involved in one large order versus the extra shipping costs and (perhaps)
smaller discounts involved in two smaller orders.

    In other words, it might have been the case that Auschwitz would have
received Zyklon every six weeks even if Zyklon lasted forever.  Hilberg's
error was not technical, but economic. 

    "So," says Giwer, "if Hilberg is dumb enough to think that shipping
frequency bears a necessary relationship to shelf life, he must believe
that the delousing Zyklon lasts six months."  But he doesn't phrase it
that way.  Instead, he phrases it in a way which can mislead people into
thinking there was actually a contradictory claim made by Hilberg, even
though there was not.  The contradiction comes from the reductio ad
absurdum, which Giwer does not phrase in the normal way above.

    Hilberg of course made no direct claim about a relationship between
shelf life and the six month interval.  And I am sure he would be able to
figure out that it merely means that a normal SS installation only needed
to do a delousing about every six months or three at the most unless they
knew that the label was worst-case (as it usually is) and continued to use
it past the manufacturer's recommended date (as people often do).  I buy
eggs about every six months, not because they last that long (I often end
up throwing most of the carton away) but simply because that's how seldom
I make a dish that calls for eggs.

    But this way Giwer gets to jerk people around while still (in his own
mind) being able to tell the truth in claiming, when cornered, "I never
said Hilberg said that."  Sort of I-had-my-fingers-crossed-when-I-said-it. 

    Not that this makes the game any less dishonest and juvenile, but I
thought people might like an explanation of just _how_ Giwer is being
deceptive here. 


>Giwer is, as far as I can determine, a troller whose only interest is in
>causing fights. [...]

    Well, no, he may also be feeding his ego by proving to himself how
superior he is to all the "holohuggers" who cannot see through his game.

    And we all know that mass _gassing_ is not mentioned in the Wiesenthal

    Please note that the discussion of sterilization starts with the
following text:

   In the course of the final solution plans, the Nuremberg Laws should
                                                                 ^^^^^^
   provide a certain foundation, in which a prerequisite for the absolute
   ^^^^^^^
   solution of the problem is also the solution to the problem of mixed
   marriages and persons of mixed blood.

   The Chief of the Security Police and the SD discusses the following
                                               ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
   points, at first theoretically, in regard to a letter from the chief
   ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
   of the Reich chancellery:


    Note that it says the Nuremberg Laws SHOULD provide, not WILL provide. 
Note that the long discussion following is apparently either the opinion
of the Chief of the Security Police or the description by that person of
something he received from the chief of the Reich chancellery (the wording
"in regard to" is somewhat vague; absent any more definite information I
prefer the latter interpretation).  Note that he "discusses" (not
announces or establishes) "at first theoretically," (as opposed to
definitely).  This long discussion is followed by: 

   SS-Gruppenf|hrer Hofmann advocates the opinion that sterilization will
                            ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
   have to be widely used, since the person of mixed blood who is given
   the choice whether he will be evacuated or sterilized would rather
   undergo sterilization.

   State Secretary Dr. Stuckart maintains that carrying out in practice
   of the just mentioned possibilities for solving the problem of mixed
                         ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
   marriages and persons of mixed blood will create endless
   administrative work.  In the second place, as the biological facts
   cannot be disregarded in any case, State Secretary Dr. Stuckart
   proposed proceeding to forced sterilization.
   ^^^^^^^^

So it is clear that the sterilization was not yet a done deal, as Stuckart
_proposed_ it.  And at the end: 

   In conclusion the different types of possible solutions were
   ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
   discussed, during which discussion both Gauleiter Dr. Meyer and State
   ^^^^^^^^^
   Secretary Dr. B|hler took the position that certain preparatory
                        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
   activities for the final solution should be carried out immediately in
                                     ^^^^^^^^^
   the territories in question, in which process alarming the populace
   must be avoided.

   The meeting was closed with the request of the Chief of the Security
   Police and the SD to the participants that they afford him appropriate
   support during the carrying out of the tasks involved in the solution.


    So please show us where in the Wannsee Protocol a final resolution of
the differing opinions was reached.  I can find no mention in the document
as to whether the sterilization that Stuckart PROPOSED was actually
ADOPTED or not.  With tentative language like "proposed," "possible
solutions," "should be," "possibilities," "advocates the opinion," all
they seem to be doing is CONSIDERING it, just as the Wiesenthal Center
said.  Please show us where the sterilization plan was formally adopted
and implemented.  Quote the words, whether from the Wannsee Protocol or
any other source you can find, that show a clear adoption of a
sterilization plan even vaguely resembling what is discussed in the
Wannsee Protocol, let alone an implementation of it.  I would be most
interested to see it.


>	It is unclear why there would be such clear misrepresentation
>unless there is a need for it.

    So we should conclude you need to misrepresent what the Wiesenthal
Center wrote and what is in the Wannsee Protocol?

    But another possibility is that you just do not have very good reading
comprehension.

    I have _proposed_ two two answers to the question of why you
misrepresented the text.  When I come to a _definite decision_ I will be
sure to let you know.

    Then why are you so obsessed with Jewish things?  You keep posting
about the Jews doing this and the Jews doing that (even when it turns out
to be the KKK doing it instead).  Face it, Tommy. You are more obsessed
with Jewish things than I am.

    The Giwer-troll does not know, or pretends not to know, that Birkenau
was a subcamp (albeit a very large one) of the Auschwitz complex and is
sometimes referred to as Auschwitz II.  The two camps together are often
called Auschwitz-Birkenau, but in colloquial discussion are simply both
referred to as Auschwitz.  Dishonest trolls who are more interested in
playing childish word games by seizing on any point of ambiguity and
pretending there is not another legitimate way to read the text can, of
course, have a field day with this one.  Wait until he hears about
Monowitz, sometimes also called Auschwitz III.

    Or wait until he hears about the stories as to where my grandfather
come from.  Some people say he came from Lemberg, while others insist that
the city he came from is Lvov.  I wonder if the 163 IQ type can tell me
how to resolve these conflicting true truths.

    You may have noticed he was a medical doctor, and doctors get officer
rank.  What you did not notice was that Klein was an Obersturmfuhrer,
while Eichmann was an ObersturmBANNfuhrer.  I would have expected someone
who can authoritatively criticize my translation of "Gaswagen" to know the
difference.  Please make up your mind which of these conflicting true
truths is true: that Obersturmbannfuhrer was the equivalent of bird
colonel, or Obersturmfuhrer was the equivalent rank.

    You probably would have demoted a wimp like Klein to a mere
Gruppenfuhrer.  Maybe all the way down to Reichsfuhrer SS.  Almost nothing
lower than that, right?

    By the way, who _was_ the head of the Gestapo?

    If my aim were to discredit any and all challenges to Holocaust dogma,
I would also tell you not to stop.  Your displays of illiteracy and
ignorance are astounding.

    When the issue is whether or not there have been people on camera

people are indeed proof that there is film of people talking about seeing
people actually gassed.  Wouldn't you say?

    Speaking of independent verification, are you claiming that you
personally read the entire Nuremberg document set and culled those
references?

    Or did you simply pull the text you cited from some website like Greg
Raven's or Bradley Smith's?

    If the latter, did you personally verify those NMT references?

    An answer to these questions is eagerly awaited.

    Oh, gee, I missed this one before.  No wonder I couldn't figure out
for the life of me what Giwer was going on about.  The SWC percentages
were of _prewar_ population, not _end of the war_ population.  There is no
"presumably" about it.  The SWC question quite clearly and explicitly
reads

                   ^^^^^^^

    It would be so nice if Matt Giwer would learn to read, really it

    Wrong.  There is a time frame difference as well.  Note that contrary
to the Giwer-troll's throwaway line that the SWC percentages allowed one
to compute the "presumably" post-war populations, the SWC percentages are
based on _prewar_ populations, for which (unfortunately) they do not give
the year they were using as a baseline.  For Germany and Austria in
particular this is critical, as there was some "voluntary"  emigration
before the war.  The Wannsee figures were developed _during_ the war.  The
discrepancy between the Wannsee figures and the SWC prewar figures would
include any leakage to areas not covered by the Wannsee document - e.g.,
the US or North Africa.  But without looking at migration figures from the
prewar period I would agree that this is very unlikely to be as much as
1.4 million.

    The biggest discrepancy I see is for the Soviet Union.  Due to the
closed nature of the Soviet regime, its official atheist stance, and the
soft squishy roundness of that 5,000,000 figure, I would imagine that
population statistics are softest for that country and a good part of the
1.4 million difference (and perhaps nearly all) is that the Nazis and the
SWC simply had different population sources which did not agree.

    So we compare the numbers.  Whee.  So there is a disagreement, by ca. 
1.4 million, as to how many Jews were in Europe "prewar" (whatever year it
is that the SWC is figuring from) and what the Nazis thought were in
Europe in whatever also-unstated baseline year they were figuring from in
areas where they had not already made their own accounts and population
"adjustments."  (Note that Estonia is listed as free of Jews in the
Wannsee document.)  Very good. Now, what is this supposed to prove except
that the population figures were estimates, something I already knew?

    Who?  I don't know.  Why?  Well, maybe they were applying Giwer Rule
2b (Israeli Constitution corollary).  If it walks like a duck, and quacks

    We can also point out that 11,000,000 was the figure for every single
Jew in Europe, including England, while 6,900,000 was the number
threatened by starvation in Europe, which doesn't necessarily mean every
single Jew in Europe.

    You dishonestly deleted the text where I mentioned that some
(admittedly small) part of the discrepancy may be due to emigration
outside Europe between the unstated year the SWC is using as a baseline
and the unstated year the Wannsee document used as a baseline.  Much more
dishonest is deleting the text where I said that the Wannsee document used
a 5,000,000 figure which was so round and squishy that it was an obvious
estimate.  The SWC figure for the Soviet Union was somewhere in the 3
millions. 

    As I indicated and as you dishonestly deleted from my post, the most
honest and simple explanation is that they were working from different
population estimates, not that there was a population increase.

    You know that.  You just lied about it.

    Any more lies you would like to tell?  I'm sure the lurkers must be
very impressed by the way you fight for the truth by lying through your
teeth.  Please, impress them some more.  You are making Tom Moran look
good, and I would not have thought that possible.


    It is amazing that Giwer cannot be a little more subtle in his
dishonesty.  He did not even wait until my article would have expired from
most servers.  Anyone can go back and see what Giwer had to delete from my
text in order to make his dishonest response. 

    One would expect a 163 IQ type to be smart enough to have started some
tedious argument about how estimates CANNOT POSSIBLY vary by that much
(Because!  I!  Say!  So!).  At least that lie would not have been so
trivial to expose.

    I did not realize that when Giwer claimed critical thinking skills he
meant his brain had suffered a nuclear meltdown.  It is not surprising
that he claims to be retired at age 51.

    Sorry it didn't work out for you, Tommy.  I understand Matt Giwer
sells his services as a Web site designer.  I think the two of you working
together could make a really interesting Web site.  Why not give him a
call and go for it?

    I think that's a false issue.  Although we like to think of Hitler as
an absolute dictator, we see that his power was circumscribed by political
reality.  Start with the euthanasia program - there was enough popular
resistance that the Nazis were forced to curtail it despite the existence
of a signed Hitler order.  Even Hitler had to bow to some political
realities.

    The discussions in the Wannsee minutes about "interventions" shows
that there was a tension between the ideal (get rid of all the Jews, no
exception) and what was perceived as achievable.  So they decided the
easier path was to give special preference to German Jewish old people,
spouses of racial Germans, and WWI veterans - there might be too many
Germans intervening on behalf of what Himmler would have called their one
"Prima Jude" and they did not want to deal with the heat. 

    The question of what Hitler personally wanted in 1933 is of course
interesting.  But even if the answer is "He really, truly wanted to kill
every Jew in the entire world," it is still not only possible but probable
that a) such an action was not politically achievable - there would have
been too much political resistance even from other members of the NS
regime who would have recoiled from such a radical step, at least that
early in the game, and b) Hitler himself would have realized this. 

    Since the Nazi regime was not a hive mind, from a functionalist point
of view, it makes sense to distinguish between what Hitler (and other key
players) _wanted_ and what the Nazi regime was actually _trying_ to do at
a particular point in time.  The Madagascar plan might indeed have been a
sincere effort at one time, even if we accept the premise that if in 1933,
given a magic red button labeled "Kill every Jew in the world instantly," 
Hitler would have pushed it without a second thought.  He did not have
that button, and mass expulsion might well have been what was considered
the best thing that could actually be achieved at that time.

    It is still, I believe, an essentially "functionalist" point of view
to say that the part of the equation most changed by the war was not the
desire, radicalized by the war, but rather the practical possibilities it
opened up.  (I seem to recall that this phrasing - "practical
possibilities" - actually appeared in a Nazi writing.)  There are some
hints of this in language - from one of the diaries, I believe, though
right now I can't recall if it's Hans Frank or Goebbels - about the war
creating an environment that would let them get away with things without
too much outside attention.

   My recollection is that you are right and he is wrong - what you said
was that it was easy to forge a header.  I challenged you to prove it by
sending me an undetectable forgery, but you never took me up.  But yes, I
do not recall you saying that _you_ knew how to do it.  (I think the topic
was whether posts and emails could be used as evidence in libel cases;
your position then seemed to be that the possibility of forgery made
_both_ of them unusable.) 

    But as I said in another post, had I absolute knowledge of one point
of Netcom policy, I would claim 100% certainty instead of 99% that
forgeries of articles from you can be done with _perfect_ headers.

    Excuse me good sir, but as you know, you were telling me earlier how
easy it was to forge email.  So not too long ago you too must have been
one of those dumbshits who could not read headers and thought no one else
could.  I challenged you to send me some forged email which I could not
detect; you never took me up on it.  Of course, I _do_ know how to read
headers - you will note that I have always been able to spot the forgeries
of your articles, even the ones from Netcom which fooled a lot of other
people.  (Rich Graves also spots them.)  If you have learned more about
headers since then, good for you. 

    Unfortunately, as for posts, I am 99.9% certain Marduk now does have
the ability to do a forgery of a Giwer post (or any other Netcruiser user)
which can in no way be detected merely by examination of the headers. 
Fortunately he has not yet figured out what he has to do to achieve this.
But unless Netcom has a key feature set up differently for Netcruiser than
for their shell accounts (and I would be amazed if they did), I do know
the steps Marduk would have to take to do perfect forgeries.  If you would
like me to tell him how to do it, so that this can be demonstrated, just
say the word.

    While this would almost certainly result in a flood of posts making
you look even more stupid than you do now, look at the bright side.  It
would give you some plausibility when you lie (as you so often do) about
not having written something.

    If you don't know that male children also scream, perhaps you are
the one who needs to answer that question.  But now you admit that some
people, at least, scream.  Very good, we are making progress.

    Now please produce the testimony which explicitly identified screams
as coming from adult male victims.  I don't recall any which identified
the gender, but I do not claim to have read them all.

    Excuse me, Mr. Superscientist, sir, but did you not tell us recently
that cyanide is one product of incomplete combustion?  And, as you know,
combustion is not perfect even in a well-tuned car.  Therefore by your own
word there should be cyanide in engine exhaust.  Therefore people should
be paralyzed right and left on the street if what you said is true.  Do
you claim that this is the case?

    It would seem that you too are using your knowledge of science to
deceive, in other words.  Of course, perhaps the problem is just that you
were lying about having any.

    This in no way addresses your claim that the SWC implied the Wannsee
minutes supported mass _gassing_.  Please explain, using commonly accepted
meanings of English words, how the SWC's words imply that mass gassings
are discussed in the Wannsee Protocol.

    Your attempt to pretend you were saying something other than what you
were clearly saying is rather pathetic.

    It means just what you think it means.  However, in my text which you
dishonestly cut out, I pointed out the reasons why I conclude that the
only honest interpretation is that the "will be" was a proposal only, not
an announcement of settled policy.  The "will be" text was immediately
preceded with a tentative-sounding "theoretically," and followed by people
talking as if the issue was still open for discussion.  Why should someone
_propose_ implementing a policy which has already been _definitely_
adopted for implementation?

    Now, do you suppose you can deal with my arguments rather than
dishonestly cutting them out and only looking at one line in the text?  AS
YOU KNOW, you took the words "will be" out of context, carefully ignoring
all the "proposed" and "possibilities" around it.

    And according to Matt Giwer, only a lying holohugger would do
something like that.

    Once again, Mr. Giwer pretends that if something is not stated, it is
equivalent to an explicit statement that it did not happen.  By his logic,
since he has never told us that he uses the toilet, he does not.

    One might think that it would occur to a self-proclaimed critical
thinker with an alleged 163 IQ that not only were the screamers either
inside a truck with the motor running or behind a gas-tight door, but that
in large part the screamers would have been Polish and Hungarian Jews
while the listeners were Germans.

    I wonder if Mr. Giwer can figure out what that might mean?

     I do not claim such a thing.  Nothing in my text can honestly be

    On the contrary, it is you who has done so.  You claimed never to have
read testimonies of threats and attempts to escape, and offered that as
evidence.

    I have merely asked you to back up a claim.  As usual, you cannot do
so.

    Of course you would not admit this until I pointed out the
ridiculousness of your position.

    You now admit that people exposed to cyanide _can_ scream until the
concentration reaches the required level.  Therefore as I said below, you
tried to deceive people with your remarks about paralyzed nervous systems.
You really are quite easy to catch in your lies.  I would expect better of
a 163 IQ type.

    Nice attempt to blame me for your own dishonesty, but it doesn't work.

    In any event, since the testimony which started this thread did not
refer to Auschwitz but to the gassing vans, your reference to cyanide was
one more attempt to deceive.  Either that, or you do not have sufficient
powers of concentration to follow a discussion.  Sorry to keep pointing
out your lies and bonehead mistakes.  Has it occurred to you that if you
would only tell the truth and stop trying to pretend knowledge you don't
have, I would not be able to do so?

    If Tom Moran quotes all text to which he is responding (as he usually
does, in fact), then the thread is available as quoted text in his posts. 
If he does not quote all the text, then by your own admission he is taking
text out of context and he is the one who lacks honesty and integrity.
Either way, you lose.

    Of course I should not be so rude as to point out that you do not
really believe your nonsense about needing every word of context.  For you
have also carped at people for excessive quoting.  Or do you admit that
you were advising people to be dishonest in their responses?

    Excuse me, good sir, but how do you know that Moran is telling the

    You cannot know this, of course.  Therefore you have, once again,

    Excuse me good sir, but if you are still getting telephone harassment

    I fail to see how Dickerson, Gray, Darensbourg, and Darensbourg can be
called "unidentifiable."  And I would also like to know how they can lie
to goyim but not to the Jewish students using their textbook.

    Of great interest too is the fact that this book is apparently in use,
despite this apparent glaring error.  I wonder why nobody caught it before
Mr. Giwer?

    That's not quite the way it happened.  Mr. Giwer tried to insinuate
that I moved an inappropriate discussion to a newsgroup I didn't know if
Netcom carried.

    I replied that Netcom carried a full feed.  Rather than checking for
himself to see if the group was there - as he should have done if he were
interested in carrying on the discussion on the topic - he challenged my
claim.  (This makes perfect sense if his purpose was to pick fights and
try to discredit me.)

    Giwer, of course, never made a claim about the status of the newsgroup
- because Netcom _does_ carry misc.taxes.  I can see posts from Netcom
when reading the group, which is how I can know that Netcom does carry it.

    And Mr. Giwer seems to have dropped the issue.  Sure looks like he was
more interested in picking a fight and trying to deceive people into
thinking I didn't know what I was talking about than he was in any factual
discussion, doesn't it?

    Posted/emailed.

    I just think it's worth remembering that Mr. Giwer originally misread
the SWC text, which explicitly said that its percentage of Jews killed
were based on _prewar_ numbers.  He thought that he was computing
_postwar_ populations.  It's quite clear to me that he thought he was
proving, by comparing the Wannsee numbers to the SWC numbers, that only
1.4 million Jews died. 

    Of course he will say he was trying to do no such thing.  And if you
believe that, I have some swampland in Florida to sell you.

    So proximity of text always implies that a logical connection is being
asserted?  That is today's true truth about how to interpret text?  Of
cousre you seem to get upset when people apply it to your text.  Just
another one of your contradictory true truths, I guess.

    Indeed, it can be, in the right context.  As I said, you took the text
in the Wannsee Protocol out of context.  Thank you for proving my point
for me.

    Indeed, it can be, in the right context.  As I said, you took the text
in the Wannsee Protocol out of context.  Thank you for proving my point
for me.

    I apologize to the folks at home, but this time I just can't resist
the urge. 

    BWAHAHAHAHA!  Better get some medical treatment for the huge bullet
hole you just put in your foot, Mr. Giwer.

    Thank you.  Your last example proves my point.  When a bill is first
introduced that is exactly the case.  Unless of course you would like to
continue this charade and try to convince people that it starts out
worded, "It should be unlawful" and "violators ought to be punished by" 
until it is passed and accepted by the President/governor (or a veto
overridden), at which point they go back and change all the "shoulds" and
"oughts" to "will" and "shall."  Or perhaps you think it is law the minute
it is introduced?

    Or perhaps you are merely engaged in a desperate attempt to salvage
your original piece of dishonesty.  I would think even a mere 163 IQ type
would realize how hopeless your position is right now, yet you keep on
digging yourself in deeper.  I would not have believed it possible had I
not seen it with my own eyes.

    It is no longer a surprise to me the length to which Matt Giwer will
go to try to defend his lies.  I really am long past the point of thinking
anyone needs me to point out that he is a baldfaced liar; I have simply
been trying for some time to see if there are limits to his ability to
delude himself into thinking he is fooling anyone (even if it's only
himself).  Few if any, it would seem - except for staking money on his
position in front of a neutral arbitrator.  He's declined two wagers I
have offered. Of course, this proves he knows that what he said is false,
and that he is a wilful liar.

    One could also make a case that there was harrassment of two service
providers by the Giwer: Internet Direct and Volant Turnpike.  Giwer had
Rack Jite's web pages censored _before_ he was bounced from Combase.  Just
thought I'd point that out.

    This should be easy to settle.  Please provide the article or email
you have with the earliest date complaining about your spamming a.r.  We
can then compare it with the date on the email indicating that you would
soon be an ex-user of Combase.

    Why did Combase give Mr. Giwer the boot, I wonder?  Did it have
anything to do with a mailbombing of users at Internet Direct?

    What were you doing with Volant Turnpike, Mr. Giwer?

    You tell me.  You are the one painting with a very broad brush.

    But let us not forget that Rack Jite was the first person here
censored.  And it was Matt Giwer who conducted the harrassment campaign
against Volant Turnpike to kill his web pages.

>>>         Who else would do it be a holohugger?

    Matt Giwer.  Ask Rack Jite and Volant Turnpike.  Or retrieve Giwer's
own posts from DejaNews where he even boasted of his successful
censorship.  It seems once more Mr. Giwer, contrary to his claim, plays a
game that applies to only one person.


    By the way, I've had a very tempting offer from Marduk, who would love
to know how to do perfect forgeries of Matt Giwer's posts.  You will note
that so far there appear to have been none.  Though a couple of apparently
genuine Giwer posts made me wonder for a while if Marduk figured it out on
his own.

    I also note that Mr. Giwer, who has publicly claimed that I don't know
what I'm talking about when it comes to the net, has not only failed to
take my wager that I could back up my claim about his Israeli mailbombing,
but has not said one word asking me to back up my claim about the
possibility of perfect forgeries. 

    I guess that 163 IQ must be good for something after all.

I would say that Matt Giwer has neither a reputation for integrity nor a reputation for being observant. I do not see how anyone who thinks "After a few minutes there was silence ... after some time, perhaps fifteen minutes, the gas chamber was opened" means that screaming went on for "tens of minutes" is in any way qualified to tackle Korzybski.

Although it is true that the Nazi definition of Jewish was slightly broader than normal, I do not think that this explains all or even most of the 1.4 million. (By the way, it really should be 1.3 million. The SWC does not cover Turkey, and you apparently are so innumerate that you think that you can divide by zero. Look at Bulgaria again.) Not every country keeps statistics on religion. Therefore it is necessary to estimate. When there are marches in DC, the Park Police and the DC police sometimes come up with different estimates. When you become intelligent and honest enough to be capable of dealing with the idea that many of the figures were estimates, and that different people can produce different estimates, let me know. Until then, stop trying to misrepresent my argument. It is dishonest. > And as you have read the "true" SWC number for the SU is LOWER >than the Wannsee number. So we are still presented with the same >problem. You would have the SU number higher because of atheism >while SWC puts them much lower. I did not offer that as the explanation. Is your problem illiteracy or dishonesty? Inquiring minds want to know. However, even if I were offering such an explanation, you have it backwards. The Nazis would have counted more people as Jews due to their racial definition which is not shared by any Jews except the Reform movement. Therefore the SWC number _would_ be lower than the Wannsee number if the definition of "Jew" were a reason for the discrepancy. Maybe I had better type this very slowly. The Nazis defined Jews by race. If the SWC defined them by religion, that would indeed be a lower number. If you do not understand that, you are not qualified to deliver any comments about critical thinking or statistical analysis. >> So we compare the numbers. Whee. So there is a disagreement, by ca. >>1.4 million, as to how many Jews were in Europe "prewar" (whatever year it >>is that the SWC is figuring from) and what the Nazis thought were in >>Europe in whatever also-unstated baseline year they were figuring from in >>areas where they had not already made their own accounts and population >>"adjustments."

Please answer the question. What is this supposed to prove except that the population figures were estimates, something I already knew? Nothing, of course. There is no problem with my argument. I was merely pointing out the problem with your argument. Remember, you originally said the SWC figures were "presumably" after the war. This proves you are an illiterate, because the SWC explicitly said "prewar." There was no need to presume anything. But clearly due to your illiterate misreading, you were offering the SWC 9.6 million figure as a _postwar_ figure. Thus you clearly believed that the difference between the 11 million Wannsee figure and the (supposedly) postwar SWC figure was evidence that only 1.4 million Jews were killed. No doubt you will lie some more and deny this. -- Mike Stein The above represents the Absolute Truth.

I don't know. If and when I find a Nazi doctor working in a prison _in this country_ which has a death row, even one who cannot perform that miracle, I will ask that question and get back to you with the answer. And we have not even considered the obvious fantasy of a last meal request. As you know, food is for the purpose of sustaining life functions. Feeding a condemned person before execution serves absolutely no real purpose. But even if we assume that some feeding is required to avoid the "cruel and unusual" clause, only a holohugger would believe in the ridiculous idea that a prison spend any effort to ask for a last meal preference, or money to provide steak and other goodies to someone who is to die for the torture, rape, and murder of a little girl.

Matt's text is ambiguous, and this time I cannot even find any compelling reason to believe it was deliberate. In addition to the unnamed "mutual friend," there are three people referred to in the paragraph: Alec, Matt, and Matt's son. According to the standard rules of English, "our" could properly refer to any combination of two or more people in that list, including Matt and Matt's son (but excluding Alec). I remember Matt dropping a major clue brick on your head about this as well. It seems to have bounced. Your first reading _was_ reasonable - in fact, that is how I understood the paragraph myself - but it is not the only legitimate interpretation of the text. Matt and Alec _can_ both be telling the truth, at least about the "mutual friend" issue. But Matt most definitely does not understand what happened with the Israeli gopher site, unless of course he is being dishonest in making his accusation that it requires root access. It did not. (I note that Matt never accepted my wager that I could prove this, despite his supposedly confident conclusion that I was making it up.) We now return you to our regularly scheduled flamefest.

You were asked to support _that_ claim. You can repost it ten times and the article still will not contain Mark Van Alstine saying he believes that people can be infected with cancer. Sorry about that. However, I certainly believe that Nazi doctors can inject people with cancer cells to see if they _could_ become infected with cancer. Not quite what the witness said, of course, but within the boundaries of normal interpretational drift. You see, I am a silly person who thinks one should read what a witness says with the purpose of trying to find the most plausible understanding of what really happened, not trying to find ways to troll.

But they have not. The files were originally on an FTP site with no thought of HTML. Of course the problem has been priorities and time. But what would a person without full-time employment know about that? Of course time cannot be used by Mr. Giwer as an excuse for his execrable grasp of the English language. He has had fifty-one years to get it right or at least up to a sixth-grade level and has failed miserably. He has insisted that "tortable" and "paupacy" are words which should be understood by all, while unable to use a dictionary to discover the meaning of perfectly good English words such as "scantling" and "muffle" (in its sense as an oven chamber). Of course discerning meaning through context is quite beyond his limited abilities even though he insists others should manage it for his own neologisms. And of course there are such hilarious episodes as his offering, when asked to cite a story about screaming going on for "tens of minutes," a testimony which said "after a few minutes there was silence." No, I am not making this up. Rather than mock people for lacking time to convert files to HTML, perhaps Mr. Giwer would be better served using some of his copious free time to enroll in a remedial English class. > The website itself is testimony to their level of intellige >and ability. Mr. Giwer's posts are testimony to his level of illiteracy and dishonesty.

It is quite true that people were shown bars of soap and told they were made from Jews, but that in fact the bars stamped "RIF" had a perfectly ordinary source. The bars existed, of course; the problem was not hallucination, but believing the rumor that circulated about the bars.

What they have all sworn is that Birkenau is for people who do not sleep where they worked. People who sleep at work were exterminated immediately, along with SS men for whom the living quarters were built. Those who were selected for special treatment worked like the Dickens in creative writing courses where they were or were not allowed to drink champagne. And do not forget the screaming that went on for tens of minutes when after five minutes there was silence. This is a true truth: Mr. Giwer swears.

You folks will NOT agree upon a number among yourselves. I was not aware that this was a requirement. You revisionists cannot agree on the number of Jews who died either.

You can add to the Russian shooting total virtually everyone shipped to the Reinhard camps - and even then, the people who died on the train trip would have been killed on arrival. Pressac believes there has been some misinterpretation of documents regarding Auschwitz-Birkenau which caused an overstatement of the number of people received and the percentage killed on arrival. From what I have seen so far I think there is decent reason to agree. >> Now, how many were killed solely because of being Jews, and how many >>killed because they were not only Jews but dirty rotten Bolsheviks as >>well? I can't help you with that one. I don't think anyone can. > > That is one of the points I am making. It's a pseudopoint. All Jews were suspected of being dirty rotten Bolsheviks. All Gypsies were dirty rotten spies. There's a better way to phrase it, though: how many Jews/Gypsies were killed with _no_ knowledge of their ethnicity? Because I'm sure there were Jews in various armies, and Gypsies who died from the same bomb or artillery shell that took out the Slavs next door. I have said before that because six million is a rounded figure taken from demographics, it is a gross oversimplification to say that six million Jews were "murdered." >And another point is that you folks don't know either. What does it matter that I do not know how many died of direct wilful active murder and how many died of what would be called "felony murder?" Not even the Nazis really knew. Goebbels merely wrote in his diaries that about 40% would have to be liquidated. Even he was estimating.

[much irrelevant material snipped] Actually, there is quite a bit that one could say. But none of this answers the question. If testimony is not evidence, then FRE Rule 602 says that evidence may consist of that which is not evidence. Your attempt to divert and evade the issue is noted but it is useless.

Not so. Proper attribution to the original author is given, and Mr. Giwer has not met that standard. But perhaps scientists think nothing of palming off the work of others as their own.

Another false John Dean-type hallucinatory eyewitness speaks of something he never saw. A DejaNews search for "regex" and "search engine" reveals no such claim from Hilary Ostrov or anyone else for that matter. The closest thing is a question asking Giwer if he knew about search engines. No claim that Nizkor had one. Psychic prediction: Giwer will never post any evidence that I am wrong.

Holy cheeze whiz, due to respect of the dead, they risked the health of the camp leaving unburnt bodies around during the typhus epidemic rather than use the incinerators. Maybe they wanted to have even more dead around to respect? >No mass exterminations. Simply a properly run camp doing exactly what >the Nazis said it was to do. Excuse me, do prisons toss executed serial rape-murderers into incinerators? Let us assume you are correct as to the motive. Where is it written that one cannot have respect for the dead of the people one executes? Where is it written that Jews were treated differently in this matter? No place? Thank you. You are arguing that they might realistically have respect for the dead to salvage your theory about the non-use of incinerators even during a health crisis. Yet you are using the groundless assumption that people carrying out mass extermination of a perceived enemy probabably would not have respect for those dead in order to be able to claim the non-use of incinerators as evidence for your argument.

He, on >the other hand and in light of where we started, wanted both 10% (here >20%) non-water AND 18% fat. Deceptive figuring. The calorie value of fat is computed on the weight with the water in it. I will type this very slowly for Mr. Giwer's benefit. If you take one gram of the white stuff from the side of your raw steak, that includes the water and all. When you burn it, you get whatever the calorie value of a gram of fat is regardless of what the percentage of water in that gram is. You are not entitled to take the energy value of a gram of fat with the water in, then pretend that this is really the energy value per gram for waterless fat. To compute caloric value, you may not reduce the amount of fat by 82%. Or if you do, you must multiply its energy output per unit of mass by 1/.18 = 5.56. Mr. Giwer is changing the definition of "fat" in the middle of the game in order to pull a fast one. Down in my refrigerator I have a package of Polish sausage. One link is 85g. Fat grams are listed as 22. Thus it is 25.9% fat. Pretending no water is introduced during the sausage making process, if this is Mr. Giwer's "waterless" fat, that makes the sausage at most 74.1% water not counting the protein, etc. Pretty dehydrated cow. Clearly this fat counts the water in it. Fat calories are listed as 190, but dietary calories are really kilocalories so we have 190,000 calories in 22g of waterlogged fat = 8636 cal/g. Call it 90% water, multiply by .1 to get 2.2g of dehydrated fat, but unless you claim the ability to burn water and get energy out of it, according to the observant Jews at Hebrew National that 2.2g of dehydrated fat still clocks in at 190,000 calories. I can not change that and neither can Mr. Superscientist. Unless he thinks those non-atheist Jews are lying to the goyim at the FDA. Or just go the easy route and take the 240 [kilo]calories for the 85g link. Now call it 90% water. We have 76.5g of water to cook off. We have 240,000 calories to do it with. I will even be nice to Mr. Giwer and let him start with a frozen sausage at 0C. Can 240,000 calories heat 76.5g of water enough to permit ignition of the non-water? No doubt Mr. Giwer will object that ordinary people aren't that fatty. Fine by me. Let's make them 10% fat. Let's see, 8.5g fat at 8636 cal per ~= 73,400 cal from the fat alone. The lean portion of the sausage clocks in at 63g and 50,000 cal = 794 cal/g of 100% lean meat. Again, those are waterlogged grams. 76.5g of lean in the 10% fat sausage ~= 60,700 more calories. Again, we have 76.5g of water and now must steam it off in only 134,100 cal. This could be a toughie. (I am hiding something. Let's see if our superscientist can figure it out.) >>> Want to go through the exercise? Even if you win the first, you >>>will lose the second.

If you >would like to start with 20% non-water and 18% of that 20% as fat, it is >fine with me. The fat must account for the heat to deal with its own water, and its entire energy output may indeed come from only 18% of its mass or even >from only 10% of its mass. Nevertheless, if its weight is measured with the water in, as demonstrated above, the .18g of waterless fat still has 100% of the caloric value of 1g of waterlogged fat, not 18% as Mr. Giwer would have it. I thank the observant Jews at Hebrew National for their scholarly nutrition label. It appears Mr. Giwer is trying desperately to count the same water twice in order to reduce the energy the corpse gives off while burning. Sorry for pointing that scam out. As he claims to be a competent scientist it is hard to explain this as anything but deliberate dishonesty and deception. No doubt he will respond to this with an ad hominem attack on me, but it will not make this very valid point go away. And Mr. Giwer knows it. This is now an exercise in Mr. Giwer's credibility as a scientist. He is now invited to behave like one and refute this point with documented sources, detailed computations, and reasoned explanation. But my psychic prediction is that we will see more unscientific name-calling and handwaving. >Because even if it is marginally correct that the there is more heat >released than needed then all of that heat has to remain within the oven >and none of it can go up the flue or be lost by any other means >including opening the door to put in another body. These are valid considerations. But until you quantify these sources of loss, you are handwaving and you know it. I interpret your introduction of these issues before your computation of the burn as an admission that you already know the body contains enough fuel to pay back what has to be invested in it to bring it to ignition, and you are now looking for someplace to run to where you can handwave and namecall and try to shift the burden of proof onto other people. I know you do not like patents as sources, but the Topf patent does have a total gross energy value (i.e., the total energy without subtracting anything needed for dealing with the water) for an average 70kg corpse. That is 160,000,000 calories (those are small calories, not dietary calories). I leave you to work out how many calories per gram that is. Until you can come up with something better, as you yourself once said, my something beats the hell out of your nothing. Would you like to work with that, or do you prefer the sausage label? >Rather the game is being played by the holohuggers to explain the lack >of enough coke to cremate the number of people claimed. > >Some time in your life you may be brave enough to face it. There was >not enough coke to cremate all of these people. You claim that. Fine. You may even be right. But as you know, YOU BEAR THE BURDEN OF PROOF. You have evaded it at every turn, making unequivocal claims as above yet insisting you do not have to show anything. Here things are computable at least as a first-order approximation - or you have the option to run the experiment a second time (I understand the British have some cows they want to get rid of). So far _you_ have avoided the work and handwaved it all. Please start by addressing the point that you cannot measure caloric value with the water in yet pretend that the waterless version yields the same energy per gram as the version with the water in. Or if you now agree that you were counting the same water twice, please proceed to burn my Polish sausage and tell me whether it can manage to heat its own water enough to permit ignition - that is, will it pay back what the coke must put into the body in order to ignite it? Since your memory is not reliable, I will remind you that this is 240,000 calories to heat 76.5g of water starting at 0C. Can you heat it enough to permit ignition of the solid part? Or use a leaner sausage if you prefer and call it 134,100 calories. Now stop stalling and get out your calculator. >That means very simply >that there were not that many people cremated. That means that the >recorded deaths from stated, non-gassing causes and the amount of coke >shipped there match. Again, I've got something that beats the hell out of your nothing. Two somethings in fact. Want to start computing with that, or would you like to find your own published, verifiable source for caloric value of a gram of fat or of corpse, which clearly specifies whether it is a net or gross value? (If it is a net value and positive, that means that the body gives off more energy than it absorbs in the ignition process.) If the body contains enough energy to pay back the initial investment in its ignition, the computations would then shift to the loss up the flue, out the door, and to other parts of the "outside world" - including the structure of the crematorium itself - vs. the gain from cremation. We would then have to figure out how much _additional_ coke per hour is needed to make up _those_ losses. Are you brave enough to face what it might reveal, Mr. Superscientist?

Here's a REALLY interesting point: if Mr. Giwer is offering an honest argument via the above, then he must believe the purpose in burning a body changes both its physical burning characteristics and construction costs for the disposal equipment. I would think that if simply getting rid of rotting bodies from a typhus epidemic was the purpose, then a common incinerator would _still_ be cheaper to build and operate, and faster. But perhaps that is just because I am (as Mr. Giwer repeatedly asserts) ignorant of science, and Mr. Giwer will now provide us with a scientific explanation for this amazing effect of intentions on physics. Until that happens, I will assume that someone simply failed to break out of the pattern of conventional thinking about how bodies are burned. After all, I cannot believe that the people running the camps were all 163 IQ type rocket scientists. If they were, they would have been at Peenemunde. >But instead they use a design that preserves the human ashes separate >from the fuel ashes. > >How strange for people with such intentions. How strange for people with intentions of dealing with massive corpse disposal problems for _any_ reason, legitimate or not. Even if you assume that they needed to have some regular cremation ability so that they could return the ashes of the ordinary prisoners to the families (they did for a fee, or at least pretended to, according to Pressac), this would not apply to the Jews. All money had already been taken from the Jews and they were not saving the ashes in separate urns pending the end of the war. Therefore it would have been more rational to build a smaller number of ovens plus an incinerator regardless of whether the intentions were sinister or innocent. >Looks like we are back to dealing with those stupid Germans again.

A tax is a mandatory fee imposed by a governmental body. I expect stupid know-nothings to think that there can possibly be such a thing as a kosher food "tax" in Canada and the US, but Mr. Ayre likes to consider himself a professional thinker. Now, Mr. Ayre, do please tell us how this "tax" was passed, why some companies seem to be exempt from this "tax," how both Revenue Canada and the IRS collect and distribute it, how it is a "scam," etc. I can give you some rather unsavory stories of "scams" where products were represented as kosher which were not. Hence the system of inspections and certifications. It is sad that this is necessary, but there are crooks in the world. Does anyone remember the fake apple juice a baby food manufacturer got caught selling a few years back? Give the tykes colored sugar water - they have no way of knowing the difference, and our profits will go up. As I recall, Sinclair Lewis gave some rather unsavory stories of products represented as safe and wholesome food which were not - which led to a "scam" of food inspection. And that "scam" is funded by _real_ tax dollars. By all means, though, save your money and avoid products with the letter "U" inside a circle. This includes all the kosher electrical products with the "Underwriters Laboratories" tag. That scam is funded by a tax demanded by orthodox insurance companies who don't want to pay fire and injury claims. Cheap bastards. (I'll bet you can find at least a few JOOS in those companies, too! What more proof do you need?) >will naturally be defended vigourously by its practitioners with >every argument at their disposal, including this nonsense epithet, >"You're an anti-Semite." There are plenty of companies who seem to escape paying this "tax" - including the ones who put a simple "K" on their products and say, "We won't pay a rabbi to certify we are both telling the truth and not making stupid mistakes without realizing it. But if you trust us to know what is kosher and what is not, and not to lie to you, this is kosher." So what is the problem here? Go buy those products and kwitcherbitchin. By the way, Mr. Ayre, got any kids? If so, did you actually _taste_ any of the apple juice you gave them when they were infants? >Once again, an anti-Semite is a person who is hated by the Jews. H.

You don't even understand the OT prescriptions, then - or maybe you don't understand everything that goes on in food manufacturing. I'll just give one example. There is at least one red food coloring made from insects. With a few exceptions, insects are not kosher and you can find this in the OT. >*My* understanding, however, is that these things were meant as camp >laws, not moral laws, and could therefore only apply to someone still >lost in the wilderness.. Ahoy out there! Leviticus 3:17 says, "It shall be a perpetual statue for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat nor blood." That seems to be quite a bit different than "It shall be a temporary statute only while you are dwelling in the wilderness." What part of this escaped your understanding? (BTW, the word for "fat" in in the Hebrew does not mean all fat as we understand it, but only fat from certain areas of the animal which was reserved for sacrificial use.) What part of Leviticus 11:44 escaped your understanding? "And ye shall be holy" sure sounds like a moral law to me. Look, just buy the products that have a simple letter "K" on them (not enclosed in a triangle or other figure), or no symbols at all. No rabbi receives any money for those products.

Actually, that is not correct - have you actually tried to use Altavista to find something on Nizkor? It will get the FAQs, but most of the Nizkor archives are still the plain text files from the old email request system (does anyone remember oneb.almanac.bc.ca?) which preceded Nizkor. Those files are accessed through the CGI, and AltaVista doesn't index those. I believe this situation will be corrected in the near future. However, I have an account on Nizkor, and I _can_ search the files by content. When Giwer claimed that there was a file on Nizkor saying that Rudenko lost one case against Hoess for lack of evidence, I did a case-insensitive search on "Ruden" and "enko" (to catch any line breaks in the middle of the word).

The total energy frm fat, you see, remains the same. But (see below) we can postpone this part of the discussion while we work on something else which should be easier to agree on. >> Down in my refrigerator I have a package of Polish sausage. One link >>is 85g. Fat grams are listed as 22. Thus it is 25.9% fat.

Thus by weight, it still contains water. Very good. You now agree that fat (in the sense of the white stuff on the side of your steak, or what is ground into the sausage, which is what the nutritionists measure) _does_ contain water. So you cannot subtract all water from the body, including the water from the fat, then compute the weight of dehydrated fat but use an energy value per gram as if it were hydrated. But once again (see below) we don't have to come to an agreement on this point right now. It can wait. >> Call it 90% water, multiply by .1 to get 2.2g of dehydrated fat, but >>unless you claim the ability to burn water and get energy out of it, >>according to the observant Jews at Hebrew National that 2.2g of dehydrated >>fat still clocks in at 190,000 calories. I can not change that and >>neither can Mr. Superscientist. Unless he thinks those non-atheist Jews >>are lying to the goyim at the FDA. > > But I can find the right inputs and then be able to make the correct >calculations. Then please do so. The amount of energy needed to deal with the water is independent of the amount of energy in the body. We do not have to agree right now on how many calories there are in a human body in order to figure out how many calories are needed. In order to answer the question of whether the body supplies enough calories, when burned, to repay the energy used to ignite it, we must compute the ignition energy. Without that, we have no way of knowing if the calories available (whatever they are) would be sufficient. Correct? So take a 70kg person as your input. Is 85% water an acceptable assumption? Compute the number of calories required to deal with the water in cremating a corpse. You have claimed you can do this calculation. Please proceed. Show all your work. After you have given your number and the computations you used to arrive at that number, I will either agree to it and we can then work on the second half - finding the number of calories actually obtained by burning an average 70kg corpse - or I will tell you why I disagree.

Greg Raven was exposed as a liar. It was repeatedly shown that he posted dishonestly and deceptively edited sources and grossly distorted paraphrases, and used invalid reasoning and arguments. Tim McCarthy was shown to have done the same thing to one particular document, and to have missed something in one of his own claimed sources that refuted his own theory. Fritz Berg was shown to have overlooked (at best) a number of issues of toxicology and misrepresented some things in his own sources. Bradley Smith was exposed as a hypocrite when he admitted he introduced the Leuchter Report even though he knew there were flaws in it, yet criticized Michael Berenbaum for not checking his sources carefully enough. Ross Vicksell simply wasn't capable of debating anything. Every time you turned around, he had to go ask someone else something. The were not driven out by namecalling. Tim McCarthy certainly gave as good as he got from the word go. They were driven out because they were exposed as dishonest and hypocritical, and realized that they were not advancing the cause any. The only difference between you and them is, you don't seem to mind be be embarrassed by being caught in hypocrisy or in a lie. That is your problem, not mine. >> So now the posting volume has increased. If that is your definition >>of "winning," then Tom Moran could have done the same long ago. >>Congratulations, you are smarter than he is. > > It is not my definition. You certainly read McCarthy's message. I got >a similar one from McFly by email. They obvious had talked it over. Yes, I read his message. I am privy to the discussions that go on. Did you know that I was the one who wrote the mantra, as you call it? (The original, not Mark Van Alstine's mutated version.) Yet I do not use it. Because, you see, there really was no conspiracy. Other people simply read it, liked it, and decided to use it. There was no advance agreement. I never suggested that it be used. I never intended to use it. I have not killfiled you. I respond to you just the same as I respond to anyone else, on my own terms, if and when I choose. I find it uproariously funny that you think it is such a revelation that you are now dealing with Nizkor on your own terms. If you have ever been doing anything but, then you are very, very, very stupid. I have not tried to silence you. I merely point out when you are lying or hypocritical. I have said that if my goal were to defend the orthodox holocaust story at any cost, I would want you posting forever, because you are a liar and easily shown to be such. But if my goal were to defend the orthodox history at any cost, then I have done some very strange things. Ask Jeff Roberts who it was who reported survivor testimony that they were held in Auschwitz unregistered, then sent off to other camps without any records being made. So you have not beaten me, because I have never played any game other than the one I have always played. You can only beat me at it if and when you start playing it. But you are not capable of playing that game, 163 IQ or no. If and when I decide to deal with you, you will be dealt with, and on my own terms. Because just as you can get this newsgroup to do whatever you want, I can summon spirits from the vasty deep, and invoke daemons by name. (And I do not even need a pentagram.) I'm sure you are suitably impressed. >> But "discussion" of revision? You have made an assertion about the >>amount of coke needed for cremation.

You were the one claiming a physics degree and the ability to do the calculations. You were the one claiming there was not enough coke. Your claims. Therefore your burden of proof, as you do not hestitate to point out to other people who make claims. Yes, I know you hare not in the least embarrassed when I point out your hypocrisy. Nevertheless, you are once again being hypocritical. Your claims, your burden of proof. Start calculating. I think you are actually bluffing and cannot do the computations - that you do not even know the correct equations. You are hoping to get someone else to do them so that you can sit back and say, "You're wrong!" without actually having to back up your claims or make any claim which can then be shown wrong by someone who really _does_ know what they're doing.

And their claims have been addressed. They seem to have given it up. The only other ones currently left on any regular basis are J. F. Beaulieu, Tom Moran, Jeff Roberts, and Al Baron.

Greg Raven was exposed as a liar. It was repeatedly shown that he posted dishonestly and deceptively edited sources and grossly distorted paraphrases, and used invalid reasoning and arguments. Tim McCarthy was shown to have done the same thing to one particular document, and to have missed something in one of his own claimed sources that refuted his own theory. Fritz Berg was shown to have overlooked (at best) a number of issues of toxicology and misrepresented some things in his own sources. Bradley Smith was exposed as a hypocrite when he admitted he introduced the Leuchter Report even though he knew there were flaws in it, yet criticized Michael Berenbaum for not checking his sources carefully enough. Ross Vicksell simply wasn't capable of debating anything. Every time you turned around, he had to go ask someone else something. The were not driven out by namecalling. Tim McCarthy certainly gave as good as he got from the word go. They were driven out because they were exposed as dishonest and hypocritical, and realized that they were not advancing the cause any. The only difference between you and them is, you don't seem to mind be be embarrassed by being caught in hypocrisy or in a lie. That is your problem, not mine. >> So now the posting volume has increased. If that is your definition >>of "winning," then Tom Moran could have done the same long ago. >>Congratulations, you are smarter than he is. > > It is not my definition. You certainly read McCarthy's message. I got >a similar one from McFly by email. They obvious had talked it over. Yes, I read his message. I am privy to the discussions that go on. Did you know that I was the one who wrote the mantra, as you call it? (The original, not Mark Van Alstine's mutated version.) Yet I do not use it. Because, you see, there really was no conspiracy. Other people simply read it, liked it, and decided to use it. There was no advance agreement. I never suggested that it be used. I never intended to use it. I have not killfiled you. I respond to you just the same as I respond to anyone else, on my own terms, if and when I choose. I find it uproariously funny that you think it is such a revelation that you are now dealing with Nizkor on your own terms. If you have ever been doing anything but, then you are very, very, very stupid. I have not tried to silence you. I merely point out when you are lying or hypocritical. I have said that if my goal were to defend the orthodox holocaust story at any cost, I would want you posting forever, because you are a liar and easily shown to be such. But if my goal were to defend the orthodox history at any cost, then I have done some very strange things. Ask Jeff Roberts who it was who reported survivor testimony that they were held in Auschwitz unregistered, then sent off to other camps without any records being made. So you have not beaten me, because I have never played any game other than the one I have always played. You can only beat me at it if and when you start playing it. But you are not capable of playing that game, 163 IQ or no. If and when I decide to deal with you, you will be dealt with, and on my own terms. Because just as you can get this newsgroup to do whatever you want, I can summon spirits from the vasty deep, and invoke daemons by name. (And I do not even need a pentagram.) I'm sure you are suitably impressed. >> But "discussion" of revision? You have made an assertion about the >>amount of coke needed for cremation. And several people have tried to sit >>down with you (including myself) and discuss it with you, getting down to >>hard numbers.

You were the one claiming a physics degree and the ability to do the calculations. You were the one claiming there was not enough coke. Your claims. Therefore your burden of proof, as you do not hestitate to point out to other people who make claims. Yes, I know you hare not in the least embarrassed when I point out your hypocrisy. Nevertheless, you are once again being hypocritical. Your claims, your burden of proof. Start calculating. I think you are actually bluffing and cannot do the computations - that you do not even know the correct equations. You are hoping to get someone else to do them so that you can sit back and say, "You're wrong!" without actually having to back up your claims or make any claim which can then be shown wrong by someone who really _does_ know what they're doing. You could, of course, prove me wrong by doing the calculations and showing your work as you claimed you could do and were challenged to do. But I predict you will not, because you are a lying fraud. That is not an insult, that is simply a fact, which I cannot change. Only you can change it. -- Mike Stein The above represents the Absolute Truth.

It seems to me the gentlemen who left admitted defeat. Contrary to what is claimed, they were met with more than just name-calling (although yes, there was some - but you provide your share). They were presented with logic and documentation (and I am talking not just about documentation of evidence for the orthodox history, but documentation that their own cited sources were used deceptively and dishonestly). Many of then explicitly said they wanted open debate. That game was agreed to. Debate is a game with well-understood rules. One of them is, you get caught falsifying your evidence, you lose.

The principle is this: if someone claims to have seen something, you cannot arbitrarily say it is false Because! I! Say! So! You have to have a reason. When I first heard the story and thought it over to decide if it _could_ be true or not, I _only_ heard about the color part. _Without_ knowing the full story behind the claim, I surmised that it might have something to do with fat people vs. skinny people. Only then did I hear that this is exactly what the person telling the story claimed. Holocaust "revisionists" claim that crematoria cannot shoot out flames. Ordinarily they do not. But I actually talked to someone who designed one of the cremation systems currently sold, a Mr. Steven Looker of B&L Cremation Systems. Without any prompting from me, he volunteered that older crematoria _could_ shoot out flames if overloaded - the phenomenon was called a "candle." He even said that while his product was designed to prevent it, he thought that if he really tried, he could get it to do the same thing. And there is a record of one of the chimneys needing repair due to a fire. >That's what I infer from all this. And how much eyewitness testimony from >the >Holocaust is similarly unquestioningly accepted, like this smoke and >flames nonsense? A surprising number of things are not as nonsensical as they first seem. Now, as I said, the person who told the story admitted it was hearsay so you may discount it on that basis.

It is of course true that Mr. Giwer has claimed that one or more people have mailbombed him. Assuming he is telling the truth, he has no idea who. Not that this stops him from trying to smear everyone with the actions of one. But then, Ken McVay was also mailbombed. The perp was caught. The story is on Nizkor. Do you see Ken McVay making a big deal of it and accusing all revisionists of trying to silence him? As for empty namecalling, I wish there were less of it and have said so, publicly, on more than one occasion. But if the people who left have not learned that sticks and stones and all that, I'm afraid I can't do anything about that. Namecalling is also free speech, or hadn't you noticed? >My impression, from reading so many of these kinds of vicious >anti-revisionist posts, >are that the LAST thing these people want is a free and open, rational >exchange of >opinions on the Holocaust. Speaking only for myself, I admit you are in a sense correct. That is the last thing I want. The first thing I want is a free and open, rational exchange of facts and logic about the Holocaust.

Yes, I am sorry to inform you that the great martyr to the cause of free speech (and I agree he should not have been prosecuted, BTW) was not above calling for the use of hate speech laws himself. What is very funny about this "Jewish people so determined to smash it" is that, e.g., it was a Jew who defended the legal right of the Nazis to march in Skokie. I've told Bernie Farber to take a long walk off a short pier when it comes to controlling content on the 'net. Just a couple of examples. No coercion was applied to force the people to leave the newsgroup. I am only aware of Mr. Giwer's claim of mailbombing - but then, the same has been directed at Ken McVay, and he did not run off screaming about how he was forced off. For the others, having seen the posts directed their way, all I can say is that apparently they did not like the free speech that was directed at them. Some of it was rude, I agree, but rude is still within the bounds of free speech. And you somehow think that this is the same thing as censorship? You are very, very confused.

I want to go back and check the full context to see if some of it is not really testimony. Carlos Porter pulled things out of prosecutors' statements and presented it as if it had been actual evidence. But prosecutors' statements (which can include rumors) are not evidence. And I know much of what Mr. Giwer has posted has come from Porter. But Giwer also plagiarizes, sometimes (not always) taking text >from web sites without giving the source so that it can be seen in context, footnotes checked, etc. If _you_ want to discuss something without the intellectually dishonest tactics Matt Giwer uses when issues are discussed with him, I'll be happy to talk to you.

You have no problem with his provable lies? You have no problem with the fact that he kept insisting I should do the computations to back up his claim (for which he bears burden of proof)? You have no problem with the fact that when I steadfastly refused, saying he should go first, he lied and accused me of deleting his computations - which he had not posted in any article to which I had responded? You have no problem with his denying words DejaNews records him as having written? You have no problem with the fact that he writes in a way as to insinuate that _anyone_ who opposes him is complicit in attempts to harrass his family, shut him up, etc.? If you have no problem with any of that, I think you have a problem, sir. >You are so blind that you have no conception of what a good Nazi or NKVD >boy you would be.

I will call things as I see them, giving credit >where credit is due on both sides, and slinging garbage to garbage slung. I must have missed your response to Mr. Giwer's garbage-slinging as I have described above. Whatever your opinion of Mr. Curtis, I defy you to find evidence that I have engaged in any of the things Mr. Giwer has accused me of. I have "conspired" to build the most effective documented case to prove that Mr. Giwer has told the lies he has told and made the errors he has made. If coordinating and consulting to document the truth is an evil conspiracy, then I guess I am guilty. But shut him up? I have not even complained to Mr. Giwer's service provider about his provable libel, complaints Mr. Giwer implies are OK to make. Yet he has called me a member of the "conspiracy." The conspiracy is not to destroy him. Mr. Giwer has destroyed himself by lying. If he doesn't like people using their free speech rights to point this out, that's tough. >What? Did you think it requires some special _skill_ to kick out your >vociferous, angry, frustrated trash? > >Maybe some day you will find some other way to get off in life other than >by engaging in stupid ad hominems on the Usenet. But I doubt it. Perhaps you should check more carefully the people you are defending. Matt Giwer has lied, and lied repeatedly, both about evidence regarding the Holocaust and about persons posting in this newsgroup, including me. You are defending a liar.

One identifiable user, marduk@idirect.com, seems to have moved over to Netcom and has not been forging articles lately. Mr. Giwer claims an unidentified person mailbombed him. (Hebrew text was allegedly emailed >from an Israeli gopher site - amusingly, Mr. Giwer insisted that the Israeli government or someone with root access did it, though in fact this is not necessary.) Mr. Giwer accuses an unnamed shadowy "them" for Marduk's actions and the alleged actions of the mailbomber. (Mr. Giwer could, of course, have manufactured the mailbombing himself to claim martyrdom. He has no real evidence other than his own word, and he is provably a liar. But I am prepared to believe the mailbombing claim anyway.) >>My claim is that Matt Giwer's intentions are to make alt.revisionism >>useless to anyone who wants to discuss rationally the phenomenon of >>revisionism and/or specific arguments and claims of revisionists... > >Some of the anti-revisionists respond to the revisionists rationally, but >most of them obviously do not.

Jumping to conclusions, and rather rude in my opinion given that you do not have a firm foundation for this accusation. >I think the last thing you are interested in is rational debate. So far you have showered us with opinions. Rational debate requires actual evidence and argument. This too has been sorely lacking in Mr. Giwer's posts. I've been chasing him on computations for energy required for cremation - to support his own claims - and all he comes back with is that _I_ should post _my_ calculations. His claim, his burden of proof. The last I saw, he falsely accused me of deleting his computations and in the bargain denied posting an unsupported figure of 30,000 kcal, a post that I could easily find on DejaNews from little more than a week ago.

Now be sure to identify the errors. And no assertion, please. You have no credentials. This article discusses the errors and deceptions contained in Friedrich Berg's "proof"[1] that it would be nearly impossible to use diesel exhaust to kill people as described by the witnesses to the Reinhard death camp gassings. The case is given in nontechnical terms, though for those who want to wade through the detailed technical arguments, they are given in an appendix which reproduces the case with full details and references. Still, people are encouraged to read all the details. One thing "scientific" Holocaust deniers like Berg and Fred Leuchter count on is the fact that many non-scientists can't follow scientific debates, and assume that if it is dressed up in scientific terms, it must be right. But there are many other scientific debates we see today - pollution, cancer, global warming, etc. - which enter into the political arena. Some of these arguments are made to support a hidden ideological agenda, and the science is dishonest. We hope that following the full argument will help people realize that just because something comes dressed up as "science" doesn't mean you should stop thinking critically about what you're being told. Berg's arguments boil down to the following: 1) Diesel engines, unlike gasoline engines, do not produce large amounts of carbon monoxide (CO) under normal operation, and it is extremely difficult to get them to produce levels of CO sufficient to cause death within the time reported by the witnesses. 2) Eyewitnesses described the corpses from a diesel gassing as blue in color - but acute carbon monoxide poisoning victims are red. 3) Furthermore, the Germans had much better ways to produce carbon monoxide than diesel engines (the "producer gas" trucks and busses), so using diesels makes no sense. Therefore (reasons Berg) contrary to the assertion of historians, the victims were _not_ killed by carbon monoxide. 4) Diesel engines normally produce a fairly high proportion of oxygen in the exhaust, so people would not die of asphyxiation in the amount of time claimed by the witnesses. 5) Even if the above were not true, if execution were to be by asphyxiation, there was no sense in running the engine - it would have been sufficient to seal the victims in an airtight chamber, so pumping in exhaust for asphyxiation made no sense. Therefore (reasons Berg) they were not killed by asphyxiation either; the whole affair is a hoax. There is a core of truth to all of the five points. Point (2) above is often true, though not always. However, as Berg failed to mention in his paper the witness, SS hygienist Dr. Wilhelm Pfannenstiel, explicitly mentioned asphyxiation as the cause of death[2]. Point (1) is not so true as Berg believes, but given point (2), it is quite possibly irrelevant. Berg relies heavily on "psychological" arguments such as points (3) and (5), the idea that the SS personnel in charge of the death camps would have done things in better ways if they had really wanted to kill people. For example, in Usenet alt.revisionism article <2vt3du$t0b@mary.iia.org>, Friedrich Berg wrote: "[Scott] Mullins should try to run a heavily-loaded 150 HP engine, that is still small, with a propeller or fan in a closed loop without making lots and lots of noise." Is Berg trying to argue that the Nazis wouldn't have committed mass murder with diesels because they would have been too afraid of getting a ticket for violating noise ordinances? In the same article, Berg also wrote, "Since the load of any fan or propeller varies non-linearly with RPM, it is still quite a trick to choose the right sized fan or propeller. Ivan with the big wrench won't know how." Here Berg is actually arguing two contradictory things at once. If this had been done, "Ivan," of course, wouldn't have done it. It was the Nazis who created the system, not the Russians or Ukranians. The Russians just built the original engine. The Nazis would have modified it. Is Berg saying the Nazis wouldn't have known how to do this? Is Berg saying the Germans had no competent engineers? On the other hand, arguing that an unsophisticated "Ivan" was responsible for the idea and the modification damages points (3) and (5), that it wouldn't have been done because it wasn't a good idea technically. An unsophisticated person would probably not realize that there's anything wrong with using a diesel engine to generate carbon monoxide. This sort of self-contradictory argument is one advanced by a defense lawyer, not a scientist. Although Berg says it's very difficult to tinker with the engine to produce high CO levels, the same technical papers he quotes in his own paper show that the authors were able to produce CO levels up to 6% by adjusting the fuel system. It may also have been possible to block the air intake to alter the fuel/air mixture. Berg cannot escape the fact that if the authors of his own references were able to produce lethal exhaust from a diesel, so would an SS technician. Still, due to the testimony about the blue color of the bodies, the one crucial point on which Berg may very well be correct is that contrary to popular belief, the people who died in chambers fed by diesel engines didn't die of acute CO poisoning. From this he would like people to believe that if they didn't die from that cause, as commonly believed, the whole story must be a hoax. However, there are many separate pieces of evidence all pointing to the conclusion that hundreds of thousands of people entered the camps of Treblinka, Sobibor, and Belzec and never emerged alive. There are records of rail shipments of people going in, and large quantities of clothing - but not people - going out. There are reports from the Polish resistance corroborating this. There are large quantities of bones. There are testimonies from the few survivors as well as many guards in the camp. To this day only two of the approximately 600,000 people sent to the camp of Belzec have ever been found alive. So if Berg is correct that the victims did not die of carbon monoxide if gassed with diesels, how did they die? Unfortunately, since the camps were destroyed before the end of the war, and the gas chambers and engines with them, it is not possible to reconstruct precisely what happened. Nevertheless, it is possible to work out the possibilities and determine the _general_ cause of death, if not the precise combination of causes. Actually, Berg had the answer all along, but refused to see it - or pretended not to. They probably did die of some form of asphyxiation, with other contributing factors. How can this be, if Berg "proved" that there is too much oxygen in diesel exhaust for this to be possible? There are a number of significant items Berg overlooks. First, diesels also produce fairly high levels of nitrogen oxide (NOx) compounds, which are also toxic. Berg only discussed the long-term carcinogenic potential of these chemicals, but in sufficient concentration they have short-term toxic effects as well - 250 to 500 ppm of NO2 or N2O4 is "rapidly fatal" all by itself[3]. While there is no way of telling if the levels were this high in the diesel gas chambers, as there are many variables involved, Berg's own principal source on diesel exhaust composition gives NOx emissions as high as 690 ppm in one test - depending on the precise distribution of compounds, possibly a lethal dose within the allotted time even without the additional considerations given below.[4] Many test run results from the paper are in the 267-448 ppm range - a significant contributing factor, even if not the sole cause of death. Interestingly, the highest concentrations were achieved at a fuel-air ratio of just under 0.03 and an engine speed of 600 RPM - a significant fact given Berg's insistence that only at higher fuel-air ratios does diesel exhaust become sufficiently toxic to kill in the half hour reported by witnesses. Second, the people in the chambers would have an elevated respiratory rate due to panic, the exertion of being run into the chambers, and high levels of carbon dioxide (CO2), and thus would have consumed the available oxygen more quickly. This aspect cannot be ignored. Third, and most importantly, the chambers were described by the witnesses as having a low ceiling, and the people were packed into the chambers as tightly as possible. This means that there was not much air per person to start with. As the diesel pumped in exhaust gas relatively poor in oxygen, high in CO2, soot, NOx (and if, unlike the fuel in the Holtz-Elliot paper, the Nazis used high-sulphur diesel fuel, there would also be sulphur dioxide, another toxin), the people would both take in the toxins and use up the available air (and load the chamber with even more carbon dioxide, causing more rapid breathing, a vicious cycle). This can be done without any tampering with the engine. However, by adjusting the fuel flow, or partially blocking the air intake, an even less oxygenated exhaust can be produced. (Again, it is not certain that this was done, but it was entirely possible.) Thus it is possible to generate lethal conditions using diesel engines, although there is not much margin for error. And indeed, testimony indicates that sometimes it was discovered that the process did not produce death in everyone, and bullets to the back of the head had to be administered from time to time. Rudolf Hoess, commandant of Auschwitz, testified that on a trip to Chelmno, where there were gassing vans, sometimes the exhaust buildup was not sufficient for killing. What about the argument that this was not efficient? This argument first of all assumes that the people choosing the diesel engines were as technically sophisticated as Berg himself. Few people know that diesels don't produce just as much carbon monoxide as gasoline engines. If they hooked it up and it worked, that was all that mattered. The producer gas vehicles certainly would have worked better, but there were two problems with them. First, the level of CO was so high that it was potentially explosive (a point Berg made in one of his own Usenet articles cited in the appendix, yet failed to see the significance of). Second, the vehicles had a more important use - as vehicles. The diesel engine came from a captured Soviet tank. There were thousands of them littering the countryside, most of them completely unusable because the Germans didn't have the facilities to repair them. Thus when the economic considerations are examined, not just the technical, the use of the diesels makes more sense. What about the argument that the people would have died of asphyxiation if just put into an airtight chamber? This argument trades on the myth that all Nazis were sadistic monsters. They were killers, yes, but they did _not_ have a policy of causing maximum suffering. The attempt to use carbon monoxide was in order to have a relatively humane execution. This was important for the morale of the SS men, as their experience with mass shooting in occupied Russia proved. The use of diesels to run gas chambers was not the best technical means, but it could (and, as the eyewitnesses testified, did) work. Eventually, at Auschwitz, a better method was found, and the diesels were abandoned.

APPENDIX Below is the relevant section of Berg's own paper in the Journal of Historical Review, plus extracts from one of his Usenet articles, interspersed with comments. Oxygen in Diesel Exhaust If the Jews were not murdered with carbon monoxide from Diesel exhaust, could they have died instead from the effects of reduced oxygen in Diesel exhaust? Such a theory would at least be consistent with the claim that the corpses were "blue." [Berg cites SS hygienist Dr. Wilhelm Pfannenstiel as one witness. However, he did not include in his paper Pfannenstiel's explicit diagnosis of asphyxiation. While Berg pretends to explore this possibility, he rushes through it while ignoring significant factors - most notably Pfannenstiel's testimony - which point strongly to a conclusion of death by asphyxiation. Omission of both Pfannenstiel's explicit diagnosis and these other factors is deceptive.] A bluish coloring to certain parts of a corpse is indeed a symptom of death from lack of oxygen. This theory, however, does not hold up very well because of the fact that Diesels always operate with excess air. [That is how they are _normally_ operated, if one wishes to run them to run a truck or a pump. This says nothing about how they could be operated if one wishes to kill people.] [Graph captioned, "Figure 6: Exhaust gas constituents of internal combustion engines.^22 The heavy vertical line at a fuel:air ratio of 0.055 has been added by the author." [This graph can be retrieved from Ken McVay's archives as a GIF.] Normal air contains 21% oxygen. In Figure 6 we see that the oxygen concentration corresponding to idle in the exhaust of any Diesel (divided or undivided chamber), shown near the top of the chart at a fuel/air ratio of 0.01, is 18%, which is just a few per cent less than one finds in normal air. At full load, which corresponds to a fuel/air ratio of 0.055, the oxygen concentration in the exhaust of any Diesel is 4%. [The graph only covers two diesels, not "any Diesel." And, as will be seen below, the graph was generated from diesels "in proper mechanical condition." Although he argues elsewhere that these are the worst numbers one finds in the Society of Automotive Engineers transactions, it should be noted that's the worst one finds for any _American_ diesel. The Nazis used Soviet diesels. (Technologies can converge within one nation and diverge between nations, as people are trained in the same schools.) And he should go to the primary source - the raw numbers which generate the graph. As will be shown below, the numbers tell a very different story.] Probably the best discussion of the effects of reduced oxygen levels or asphyxia is provided by Henderson and Haggard: SECOND STAGE. When the oxygen is diminished to values between 14 and 10 per cent the higher values of the brain are affected. Consciousness continues, but judgement becomes faulty. Severe injuries, such as burns, bruises and even broken bones, may cause no pain. Emotions, particularly ill temper and pugnacity, and less often hilarity, or an alteration of moods, are aroused with abnormal readiness.... THIRD STAGE. When the oxygen is diminished to values between 10 and 6 per cent, nausea and vomiting may appear. The subject loses the ability to perform any vigorous muscular movements, or even to move at all. Bewilderment and loss of consciousness follow, either with fainting or a rigid, glassy-eyed coma. If revived, the subject may have no recollection of this state, or an entirely erroneous belief as to what has happened. Up to this stage, or even in it, he may be wholly unaware that anything is wrong.... FOURTH STAGE. When the oxygen is diminished below 6 per cent, respiration consists of gasps separated by apneas of increasing duration. Convulsive movements may occur. Then the breathing stops, but the heart may continue to beat for a few minutes and then develop ventricular fibrillation, or stand still in extreme dilation.^23 According to Haldane and Priestley, "air containing less than 9.5 per cent of oxygen would ordinarily cause disablement within half an hour."^24 Disablement is still not death. [This makes it sound as if there's no difference between 9.5% and 0%. With 0% oxygen, death - not disablement - comes in a few minutes. Berg is trying to confuse matters here.] It is clear that there is no magic number below which death would occur, or above which life would continue. However, for any gas chamber relying upon reduced oxygen as the killing method, one would have to reduce the oxygen to below 9.5%--perhaps even below 6%. [There is no magic number, true, but Berg's argument is again misleading. What is really clear is that the lower the oxygen goes, the faster death comes. And O2 below 6% is feasible within Berg's constraints. See below.] From Figure 6 we see that to reduce the oxygen concentration in the exhaust to just 9%, any Diesel would have to operate at a fuel/air ratio of about 0.040, which corresponds to about 3/4 of full load. To reduce the oxygen concentration to as low as 6%, which would be the fourth stage according to Henderson and Haggard and would almost certainly be the condition needed to kill "all" members of any intended group of victims, any Diesel would have to operate at a fuel/air ratio of about 0.048, which is close to full load. In other words, any Diesel gas chamber relying on the reduction of oxygen as a killing method would have to operate at more than 3/4 of full load, but probably closer to full load. [This depends on exactly how Berg is defining "full load". See below.] From the above it should be obvious that over most of their operating ranges, Diesels discharge sufficient oxygen so that one can literally inhale pure Diesel exhaust and survive on the oxygen in the exhaust. From idle to at least 3/4 of full load, Diesel exhaust contains sufficient oxygen to sustain human life for at least half an hour. [notes] 22. Edward F.

Berg pays lip service to the idea of dealing with the possibility of looking at combined effects: An analysis of the combined effects of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and reduced oxygen might be possible on the basis of the research of Haldane and Henderson, but it would not give any significantly different results than what has already been concluded on the basis of reduced oxygen acting alone. The reason is that the carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide levels are just too low to make any difference. First, one can never make blithe assumptions about the combined effects of substances. If two different chemicals both have a lethal dose of one gram, that does _not_ necessarily mean that half a gram of each will be equally lethal. The two substances may work together such that a quarter gram of each is lethal - or one may be an antidote for the other! And indeed, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide are synergistic in effect. Second, there are additional effects that Berg did not look at. The eyewitness reports (as well as some reports, dismissed as forgeries by the Holocaust deniers) point out the fact that people were packed as tightly in the chambers as possible. Thus once the chambers were sealed, the people's own consumption of oxygen would be a significant factor. Berg also completely failed to look at other toxic effects, such as nitrogen oxides, soot, and heat. The most significant is nitrogen oxides. According to p. 189 of "Clinical Toxicology" by Clinton Thienes and Thomas Haley, NO2 or N2O4 concentrations of 250-500 ppm are "rapidly fatal." And the Holtz-Elliot paper shows NOx concentrations as high as 690 ppm - interestingly, at a fuel-air ratio of less than 0.03 and an engine speed of 600 RPM. Unfortunately, the paper does not break down the NOx emissions by specific compound. In his Usenet article, Berg continues: In the Holtz paper I cited from 1960, there are two extremely relevant sections which your challenge has prodded me to notice. I urge you to read them also. The first section is: 'Engine tests' on pages 68 and 69. Let's turn to that other reference that has given Mr. Berg a bit of confusion, the paper by Holtz and Elliot in the 1941 Transactions of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Vol. 63, Feb. 1941, pp. 97-105. On page 98, we find exactly the same graph referred to in Berg's note 22. But on page 99, we find some very interesting numbers - some of the raw data used to generate the graph. Engines A and B in the paper are four-cylinder four-stroke engines. Engine B is rated at a maximum 70 brake horsepower; it has a displacement of 226 cubic inches and maximum RPM of 2600. Remember these crucial words from Berg's paper: "At full load, which corresponds to a fuel/air ratio of 0.055, the oxygen concentration in the exhaust of any Diesel is 4%." It has already been noted he is on very shaky ground in claiming this was true for "any" diesel, when it's clear that this graph was generated from these two _specific_ engines. But is he right about the rest? Experiment B-12 ran the engine at 1400 RPM at a fuel/air ratio of 0.056 (one thousandth more than Berg's 0.55, but one hopes he won't argue that the extra thousandth makes a difference). Oxygen was 3.44%. The difference between 3.44 and 4 doesn't look like much, but in percentage terms, it's a difference of 14%. Is he right about full load? Well, it depends on what he means by "full load." If he is talking about maximum rated torque at the given RPM, yes. But if he's talking about full power output, no. Experiment B-12 was run with a net output of 37.8 HP. Is he right about "any diesel?" Turn to the discusson by H. E. Degler, University of Texas professor of mechanical engineering, on p. 104: "Engine manufacturers and operators have been increasing jacket-water temperatures in recent years, some as high as 212 F at atmospheric pressure, thus taking advantage of the latent-heat cooling effect in addition to the sensible-heat removal. These higher temperatures will reduce the "chilling effect of direct oxidation reactions," as mentioned by the authors, and assure ^^^^^^ lower CO, decrease aldehydes, and reduce the free carbon in the ^^^^^^^^ engine exhaust. So it seems there are some other considerations which affect exhaust gas composition. Without more information on exactly what kind of engine was used, there's no way of knowing if Soviet diesels used those higher water temperatures. Yet from two engines Berg thinks he knows what's true for "any diesel." Let's look at some text of the Holtz-Elliot paper on p. 99: Although Fig. 2 [the same graph Berg uses as Fig. 6 of his own paper] presents data on exhaust-gas composition at fuel- air ratios on the rich side, such conditions of operation are not normal and were obtained in these tests by changing the adjustment ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ of the stop limiting the travel of the rack on the fuel pump of ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ engine B. After this change the fuel injected at full throttle was increased by approximately 60 per cent. Now, these are out of normal range. But the technique used was not overloading. It was adjustment of the fuel system. And they said nothing about restricting the air intake as was done in experiments performed by Pattle et al. One must wonder what would happen if they tried doing _both_? [Berg:] In 1984 I wrote the following in my article on page 38: "For all their efforts they would have had an average concentration of less than 0.4% carbon monoxide and more than 4% oxygen." [Scott Mullins:] I'm sorry, but this is simply false. The Elliot-Davis paper that you cite _clearly_ demonstrates that diesel engines can generate CO concentrations of approximately 1.0% and O2 concentrations less than 2.0% at fuel/air ratios _less_than_stoichiometric_. For proof please see figure 4 on page 333 of the Elliot-Davis paper. [Note: "stoichiometric" means the ratio at which there is just enough oxygen to burn all the fuel completely. That ratio is approximately 0.068 for the Holtz-Elliot paper. It is also referred to as the "chemically correct ratio."] [Berg:] What I wrote is not false at all. Figure 4 shows some data taken beyond the normal operating range of the engine. From the upper limit of the normal operating range to stoichiometric, there is still quite a stretch. Read Elliott and Davis again. You can only get to stoichiometric by operating at GREATER than FULL LOAD. Read pages 334 and 335. Our old friend, Fig. 6 from Berg's paper, shows up in this reference (Elliot-Davis) as well (they call it Fig. 2). But Elliot-Davis doesn't have the raw data found in the older Holtz-Elliot paper. Let's look at that raw data, specifically experiment B-70 at the top of p. 99 in the Holtz-Elliot paper. The fuel/air ratio is 0.07 (greater than the chemically correct ratio). The speed is 1400 RPM. What is the load? Is it indeed "GREATER than FULL LOAD?" Well, again it depends on what Berg means by this. The power output is only 40.20HP (70 maximum). What is the exhaust composition? CO 0.7% - very bad. CO2 13.8% (Getting worse - CO and CO2 are synergistic, something Berg completely failed to mention in his paper.) What is the oxygen content? Oxygen content is down to 0.8%. Forget the carbon monoxide. An atmosphere with less than 1% oxygen kills all by itself. Mr. Berg has volunteered to breathe diesel exhaust to show how safe it is. One wonders if he would still willing to do that if the exhaust composition were set to less than one percent oxygen and he were stuck in a fairly small chamber so he starts using up the existing oxygen relatively quickly. (This was the situation at Treblinka, where people were crammed like sardines into the chambers). For all of Berg's claims of how difficult it is to obtain such fuel-air ratios, Holtz and Elliot seemed to have no trouble doing it. Berg cannot get around that fact. [Berg:] If you operate above the Normal Operating Range of fuel/air ratios, you produce excessive quantities of smoke rapidly. That is why I referred to the discussion by E.W. Landen at the end of the Elliott and Davis paper and why I included his diagram as well. At fuel/air ratios beyond about 0.055, the smoke "solid" line becomes almost vertical and that means, according to Landen on page 346: "short engine life." Berg still can't understand that there were literally thousands of surplus Soviet engines available. Wear and damage were not a source of worry. This engine's dead? Oh well, hook up the next one and start killing Jews again. And HOW short? Ten minutes? A week? A month? A year? Berg doesn't say. Why not? But is he even right in the first place about the amount of smoke? Again, let's turn to Holtz and Elliot, page 101: TABLE 4 FREE CARBON IN THE EXHAUST GASES FROM ENGINE B Free carbon in dry exhaust gases Fuel-air ratio Lb per lb Lb per 1000 lb per lb of fuel cu ft 0.01 0.060 0.047 0.02 0.034 0.053 0.03 0.019 0.046 0.04 0.021 0.068 0.05 0.029 0.117 0.06 0.044 0.213 0.07 0.066 0.361 0.08 0.091 0.576 Let's look at that graph on solid components of smoke Berg talks about. At a fuel/air ratio of 0.05, the graph shows 4 grams exhausted solid material per hour. At about 0.57, the graph shows above 16 grams - more than a factor of four. Is that true? Look at the numbers above. At 0.05, the middle column shows 0.029. At 0.06 fuel-air ratio, the middle column shows 0.044. That's only 1.5 times the 0.05 output, not four times! Even at 0.07, the output is only 2.3 times as much as the 0.05 output. So something appears to be wrong with the graph Berg uses. Either it was done wrong, or done from different engines than in the Holtz-Elliot paper. Scott Mullins pointed out why it was done wrong. The graph Berg cites had its units in grams per hour - that is, the total output by weight. But Berg has cackled gleefully about how it's the percentage of CO in exhaust that determines lethality, not total volume. (An oversimplification, by the way - there are other factors such as pressure.) Thus he should know very well that it is the percentage of soot in the exhaust which gives short engine life, not the gross amount - especially since his _own reference_ makes this point. Berg is _definitely_ distorting Landen by quoting out of context - another technique of Holocaust denial. Let's turn to page 346 of the Elliot-Davis paper, and see the _entire_ context of the words "short engine life." "[T]he quantities of material sticking in an engine in the form of deposits amounts to possibly 0.0001% or 0.01% of the fuel burned. The 0.0001% figure corresponds to an engine with a normal life while the 0.01% figure means short engine life due to heavy deposits." Now, this is the percentage _sticking_ in the engine, not the percent exhausted, and again it is a percentage of fuel burned, not total volume per hour. So Berg's graph is another red herring. Note that even if the amount of soot as a percentage of fuel burned were _constant_, when measured in grams per hour, doubling the fuel/air ratio will double the _weight_ of output. There are other solid components besides carbon, but on page 100 of the Holtz-Elliot paper it is shown that even at a high fuel/air ratio, carbon makes up 99.1% of the soot. [Berg:] There is some technical complexity to this subject matter, True. Berg hopes people will be dazzled by his science and take his word for everything he says, not checking up on him thinking it's too complicated to understand. [Berg:] Exterminationists who have enormous resources available to them have been too lazy--to put it as mildly as one imagine. Here is the work. Berg was right about one thing - everyone just assumed that since it was an engine, it must have been carbon monoxide. It's one of those things that "everone knows." The problem was, the Nazi killers disposed of the evidence. The courts and the historians believed the witnesses that gassing happened. They were lawyers and historians, not diesel engineers. No, things weren't up to the standard of forensics used in modern American courts. But that doesn't prove that the gassing didn't happen. All it proves is that the exact cause of death may have been a little different than what people thought. [Berg:] Before you accuse someone of murder, make sure you have a murder weapon that makes sense. Sophistry. Murder doesn't make sense period. But it happened. It happened at Treblinka, Sobibor, and Belzec. It happened at Auschwitz. It happened to the Armenians. It happened to millions of kulaks starved to death during Stalin's forced collectivizations. It happened in Cambodia, in Rwanda. The Nazis tried diesels because they were available. They probably never realized how stupid they were. It made sense to the people who did it. It worked. That's all they needed or cared to know. They were killers, not diesel engineers. [Berg:] Surely, you must agree that to make a lethal Diesel gas chamber, a lot more is involved than simply connecting the exhaust pipe of a Diesel-driven tank or truck to a closed room. Otherwise, just headaches. Surely you must agree that to make a lethal Diesel gas chamber, a lot more is involved than simply turning an adjustment screw somewhere on the Diesel engine. Otherwise, just headaches. Or asphyxiation, or death by pulmonary edema due to NOx poisoning, or some combination of toxic effects. Berg should have read the Holtz and Elliot paper, and should have done more research on toxicology as well. To make a scientific case, a lot more is involved than simply reading one graph based on two engines and handwaving through the toxicology. [Berg:] Surely, you must also agree that to make a lethal Diesel gas chamber, a lot more is involved than simply restricting the air intake to the engine. Otherwise, a barely noticeable effect. (See my tabulation from Henderson and Haggard.) Holtz and Elliot show it's quite possible. Pfannenstiel noticed an effect. He called it asphyxiation. Gerstein noticed an effect. He called it death. The Jews - well, they noticed too, but that was the last thing they ever noticed. [Berg:] The fact, which you may indeed never concede (and that is entirely up to you), is that any Diesel gaschamber method is absurd. Mass murder is absurd by any method. But it happens. After reading Holtz and Elliot, and looking more deeply into the toxicology, it becomes clear that it may not be the best method available, but it is feasible. [Berg:] Can anyone really believe the Germans would have used Diesel exhaust as a source of CO, when they had 18% to 35% CO? These were essentially the same people who built the first jet and rocket-propelled fighter airplanes, the first ballistic missiles, who also invented the gasoline engine, Diesel engine and even the automobile. Yes, but they weren't the ones building the gas chambers. Berg is dishonestly trying to slip past the idea that every German knew as much as every other German about all these technical issues. The rocket scientists were off at Peenemunde building, well, rockets. What did Wirth and Globocnik do before the war? Were they diesel engineers? Berg's argument only carries weight if the people who were trying to use diesels _knew_ that they were a bad choice. In fact, Berg argues out of both sides of his mouth. On the one hand, he tells us how terribly, terribly complicated it is to change the composition of the exhaust gas of a diesel, proving the murderers couldn't possibly have done it. On the other hand, he tells us how brilliant German scientists and engineers were, proving - they couldn't possibly have done it!? Well, no. Not quite. Berg argues they _wouldn't_ have done it, because there were better methods. His reason tells him that his way is the best, and the Nazis would have done things only in the best way, so any other story is a "dirty Jewish hoax." However, as the eminent revisionist historian Greg Raven, associate editor of the Journal for Historical Review (which Berg tells people to buy all the time) says: "It is sophistry to proclaim that something must have happened a certain way because your 'reason' demands it." With Berg's "better method" (the producer gas-powered vehicles which put out 18% to 35% CO), not only was there so high a concentration of CO that explosion was a danger (as he himself admitted with no recognition of its significance in an unquoted part of his Usenet article), but also that the vehicles in question had an alternative use, as vehicles. The diesel engines from captured Soviet tanks had no productive use - while the German army did use some captured tanks, they were hardly able even to keep up with the repair demand for their own tanks, and thousands of Soviet tanks sat in place for the duration of the war. Furthermore, diesel fuel is cheaper to make than gasoline - it's not so highly refined. So when Berg argues that there were better methods, he's only talking from a technical standpoint. When looked at from the viewpoint of an economist, suddenly it makes a _lot_ more sense. ******************************* So for all his intellectual arrogance, Berg does not analyze things completely - he doesn't look at _all_ aspects of the question. That's the scientific end and analytical end. But there's another, more important aspect. There were witnesses. Berg ignores the testimonies of Gerstein, of Pfannenstiel, of Suchomel, of Fuchs. He says they must be liars or lunatics or victims of torture or coercion. Suchomel appeared on camera for Lanzmann's documentary "Shoah" and didn't deny anything. He could have simply refused to appear. Did the filmmaker torture him? Gerstein tried to get the story out _during the war_. He told the Swedish that Jews were being killed at Belzec, Sobibor, and Treblinka. He told trusted friends that killing was going on. So how did the Soviets torture him into doing that? Pfannenstiel testified many times, and as Berg's own paper notes, his testimony always supported the Gerstein statement. Berg actually oversimplified - Pfannenstiel contradicted Gerstein on some details, but not about gassing. Because Berg has a scientific "theory" that "proves" that diesel gas chambers are "stupid," all eyewitness testimony is dismissed. Well, someone once "proved" that bumblebees cannot possibly fly. Do you see bumblebees walking everywhere? When facts contradict his theory, Berg revises the facts. He is no honest scientist. Has this paper proved that gassing did occur at Treblinka with diesel engines? No. It has only proved that contrary to Berg's claims, there is sufficient reason to believe that it is technically possible. To try to claim any more would be to engage in the same violation of scientific principles that Berg commits.

Although the Nizkor historian admits that Dr. Spanner was >investigated anent these charges more than once, and was never prosecuted, >this individual nevertheless insists on concluding -- with a question mark >-- that Dr. Spanner could well have done so. There are some inconsistencies even in the postwar history. There is a letter from the Flensburg prosecutor saying that the case against Spanner was dropped because an investigation concluded there was no soap made "at that time" (whenever "that time" is; I have not seen the letter to which the prosecutor's letter responded). But the Institute for Contemporary History says that the prosecutors were told that soaplike substances were the natural byproduct of chemical maceration of anatomical specimens. Of course, this may be the basis for the prosecutor's letter. But Mazur says the soapmaking was not accidental. >Since Mazur's testimony in >its entirety contains elements that are even more far out than the above, >and which no responsible historian accepts, I frankly consider such an >analysis a slander on Dr. Spanner's memory. It is an unsettled question. The "accidental byproduct" story may be true, or may be a convenient defense which successfully hoodwinked the prosecutors. My own position on this is that even if the story is true, and an experiment was tried, the following points should be kept in mind: - There is no evidence any of the corpses used were murdered for the specific purpose of making soap, or even murdered at all. - There is no evidence that any of the corpses used were Jewish. - This story refutes the "RIF" story all by itself, as there is no reason to do this experiment if it was already known how to mass-produce soap from human fat (apparently nobody realized this at the time). - It would appear to have been a "brainstorm" of someone at the Institute. - Given the timing, when the tide had turned against Germany, I can see this as being a desperation measure rather than a gratuitous atrocity. One myth that is used to advantage by Holocaust deniers is that the Nazis were infinitely evil and sadistic. In my study of the subject since coming here, I have learned that this is not so, that the reality is far >from the myth I learned as a child. They were murderers, yes, but even while engaging in that evil they did (officially) have a sort of ethical system about it, as contradictory as that sounds. (It might be easier to think of the parallel with capital punishment in this country, where some states kill murderers but try to do so in the least cruel way. That too seems contradictory.) Many of the most lurid stories were not official policy, but individual brutality by individual sadists encouraged by the atmosphere of the time. One could say the same of My Lai - it was not official US policy yet was certainly fostered by the atmosphere in which the war was prosecuted. For example, the tanned human skin at Buchenwald (and a U. S. Army pathology report _does_ confirm the human origin of three samples) and shrunken heads occurred under the regime of Commandant Karl Koch, a man so corrupt that the Allies never had a chance to try him because the SS _itself_ executed him for crimes, apparently including crimes against the prisoners in his care. The infamous Himmler Posen speech and the SS court judgement against Max Taubner both support this point - they contain the idea: "We must kill them, it is our duty, but we must be civilized about it." But really, that is the rule for an ordinary army. One tries to kill the enemy, but there are still limits on "civilized war." (Talk about an oxymoron!) Deniers use the "infinitely evil and sadistic" myth to pose arguments of the form "Anyone who would try mass murder must be infinitely sadistic and evil; here is a case where the Nazis were not infinitely sadistic and evil, therefore the Nazis never tried mass murder." The first premise is, of course, false. Hiroshima and Dresden could arguably be called mass murder. Were the allies infinitely sadistic and evil? Of course, this brings up another great fallacious argument I have seen on more than one occasion, one which boils down to: "The Nazis didn't commit mass murder because you did it too."

Not that a certain very prolific poster I could name has noticed, but I have tried to stay away from addressing any argument by saying, "You're an antisemite" or "You're a Nazi" even when the antisemitism was quite overt. It is a logical fallacy (check the "fallacies" feature on Nizkor). 2+2=4 even if a Nazi says so. So I have tried to stick to addressing the substance (or pointing out the lack thereof) in arguments. In my experience, there _is_ a higher than normal level of antisemitism, racism, and/or Nazi sympathy among "revisionists" than among the population at large. But I am quite prepared to state that there are those who are not, and others about whom I am still not sure - all I can say is, I have seen no evidence. So I was not thrilled with Dr. Keren's use of Milton Kleim as emblematic of "revisionism" as a whole. I side with Mr. Widmann on this one. But I have to side with Hilary in saying that they are variations on a theme, albeit one other than she intended. That theme is: inconsistency of standards of evidence and argument. It is for _this_ reason that I use "sneer quotes" around the word "revisionism." As an example: the rarity of documentation for gas chambers is cited as evidence of their nonexistence, but the rarity of documentation of the true resettlement of the Jews (railroad records, etc.) is not viewed with similar suspicion. Russians can destroy evidence but Germans cannot? Despite Mr. Widmann's (proper) rejection of the notion of painting with a broad brush, revisionist methodology - and here it is a true Johnny one-note from all I have seen - holds that since some eyewitness testimonies are unreliable, _all_ of them are, _even the ones from SS men_. (Except, of course, for those which claim torture at the hands of their interrogators. Despite the fact that genuine criminals do confess and then think better of it, claiming coercion in an attempt to get off, apparently no SS man could do that.) I've rebuked my ostensible allies both privately and in public on occasion, perhaps not often enough. I think that those revisionists who are sincere in their beliefs (and I do believe they exist) should be more willing to do the same. Greg Raven _has_ presented blatantly dishonest and distorted editing and paraphrases. Mark Weber _has_ quoted Gitta Sereny deceptively and out of context on the soap issue. I don't care how dubious you find even the story of the Mazur experiment, simple intellectual honesty demands that if you are quoting an author to support your argument, you should admit those points where the author does not agree with you. Friedrich Berg did a lot of handwaving in his work on diesel exhaust - read my writeup on Nizkor, but also look at the end where I acknowledge that I have not proved that anything of the sort _did_ happen, only that Berg made so many mistakes that he fell far short of making his case that it was nearly impossible. If I were really in the business of defending a Holocaust myth at all costs, I would not be saying what I am about to say. Because I am telling the revisionists what needs to be done to clean up revisionism to make it respectable. It's not to get rid of the antisemites and Nazi sympathizers. It's to get rid of - or at least acknowledge the shortcomings of - those who are approaching this business as defense lawyers whose purpose is to get their clients off the hook by creating "reasonable doubt" by any means possible, no matter how ridiculous the argument. (The most extreme example I know: Degrelle's letter to the Pope in which, in order to "prove" that there was not enough time to pull all the gold teeth, he claimed that it was faster to pull a tooth from a live patient than from a corpse.) I have my doubts that the numbers at Auschwitz were over a million. However, part of that is due to the testimony (oops!) produced by Mattogno that the registration records were misinterpreted, and that the number _sent_ to Auschwitz was not as great as previously believed. Lowering the death toll for this reason really doesn't lend any support to the case that there were no gas chambers. And I know from anecdotal survivor testimony that some people _were_ shipped into and then out of Auschwitz to other work sites without ever being registered there. Unfortunately, that still doesn't explain what happened to the unregistered people unable to work. I told Al Baron some months ago that catching a liar does not entitle you to claim that all those who say the same thing are liars - if it did, I could have pointed to all the lies told by revisionists and declared victory two years ago. But revisionists have to acknowledge the same thing about eyewitness testimony, and it is certainly the case that when I see so many lies (and by this I include lies by omission, the most frequent sort) I am not willing to trust anything I have not doublechecked for myself. Someone recently asked (in essence) what difference it would make if everything I believed about Auschwitz turned out to be false. Not a bit, really. What makes a difference to me is that it be established using consistent and _honest_ standards of evidence and reasoning. -- Mike Stein The above represents the Absolute Truth.

What's so hard? You need a way to dump Zyklon into the room. This is not a difficult problem.

There are two at least that I can remember. You did not notice that Kitty Hart's writing indicated the story of the baby surviving the gassing was hearsay - the way you first presented her story you made it sound as if she had made an unequivocal claim of being a direct eyewitness. She did not. The second was your reading of Bendel's testimony. You read it as being five killed by a signle bullet passing through all five. I read it as the victims being lined up in rows of five but one bullet being used on _each_ of them. At the very least, the writing is ambiguous. And I do remember that you repeated the claim of five on a bullet after I had warned you that the interpretation was debatable. I am persuaded that you don't do this intentionally, that rather you see what you expect to see, but it still creates problems. You really need to present exact quotes rather than paraphrases. -- Mike Stein The above represents the Absolute Truth.

Let's leave aside for the moment that this would only be true in the winter - in the summer, things would work very well in Kremas II and III, because they were underground rooms and the incoming air would tend to be warmer. Spring and fall days would be a wash. The most active period of gassing, according to the witnesses, was in May, 1944, when the Hungarian Jews were arriving en masse. No heating needed, and no prolonged temperature difference problems during the day, at least. The short answer is that since the witnesses reported no problems, the effects were not enough to cause problems - or they did not conduct gassings under conditions which would cause problems. Imagine if I questioned whether you were telling the truth about seeing a catcher catch a baseball because it had been thrown at 90mph. "It would break his wrist!" Do you really need to compute the force of a baseball at 90mph, the characteristics of a catcher's mitt, and the strength of the bones in the wrist in order to prove to the world that you are not lying about seeing a fastball caught? According to one theory, bumblebees could not fly. Should we revise the theory, or declare that all observation of flying bumblebees are lies or hallucinations? He did not question whether there would be problems. He made specific assertions of fact - not just that there would be certain phenomena to some degree, but that these phenomena would cause problems (with the insinuation that the witnesses were lying). Therefore he has the burden of proof for backing up his claims, and of proving that the witnesses lied. Besides, in order to make a claim, he must have certain knowledge. Therefore he ought to give an accounting of the source of that knowledge so that others may evaluate it. He is playing a very dishonest game: he demands that everyone else provide proof of their claims, but that everyone else must also provide supported rebuttal of his unsupported assertions. And then he will reject technical references as being invalid Because! He! Says! So! If you have not noticed this, you are blind. And if you have noticed this, you are aiding and abetting intellectual dishonesty. I have attempted to address claims about energy requirements for cremation. And he has weaseled, dodged, evaded, used false and deceptive computations, and then outright lied about having posted detailed, supported computations of the amount of energy needed to heat the water in a 70kg corpse to the point necessary to permit ignition. The closest he ever got involved numbers pulled from his demonstrably unreliable memory and backed up by a book that was still packed away somewhere. Sorry, that doesn't cut it. If I were to post numbers, he would simply say they were wrong Because! He! Says! So! Anything he doesn't like, he simply accuses the other poster of lying. Rich Green is a doctoral student in chemistry. Richard Schultz is a chemistry professor. Yet they have both been told by a person that has _no_ credentials in chemistry that they are wrong about a number of items - but no documentation is offered to support that assertion. Therefore I have insisted that he be the first to produce the figures he says he knows how to compute - and besides, it was his claim and he bears burden of proof for claims which he makes. Once he gives properly supported figures, _then_ it is for me to either accept them or bring equally well-supported rebuttal to show where he went wrong. In case you hadn't figured it out, he is not acting as a scientist engaged in a dispassionate search for truth. He is acting as a defense lawyer, looking for any means he can to produce "reasonable doubt." If he were interested in the truth, he would provide the computations he says he knows how to do rather than engaging in game-playing. And what about you? Are you interested in the truth? Or are you here to aid and abet intellectual dishonesty? Why don't _you_ investigate this matter if you are interested? Why is it always _my_ responsibility not only back up my own claims, but to provide proof that everyone else's unsupported assertions are false, and to do all the work only to be told that my evidence is not good enough (Because! I! Say! So!). Because, you see, that is the final bit of intellectual dishonesty going on here: like Greg Raven before him, he is surreptitiously playing both defense attorney and judge.

Well, some people's chains are pulled by intellectual dishonesty. Mine, for example. I am skeptical of extraterrestrial explanations for UFOs, but I agree with Brian that you have pulled some intellectually dishonest stunts in this discussion. There is no need for that. If you are claiming to uphold scientific standards, stick to the evidence and leave the cheap shots like allegations of drinking at home, unless you can back them up. I will affirm, however, that Brian also denied making a statement that he clearly made - that was in fact quoted in the very post in which he denied making it. (The one that McDonald _cannot_ be refuted by scientific means. Brian did write that, although he backpedaled to "has not.") Posted and emailed to both participants.

The word "likely" did not appear in your text. I will accept that you wrote hastily and meant "This _probably_ means that it cannot be rebutted," but it doesn't help.

I have repeatedly posted a couple of simple questions to Greg Raven, and he never gave a direct, unequivocal response. What standard of "proof" are you looking for?
