Let me say CLEARLY as preface to what follows that I neither attack nor defend
this subject. I am NOT attracted to either identity xtians or Nazis. I know
virtually nothing about the former and would welcome more info as I am always
interested in learning.
Two things are very unpopular in any mass society: (1) questions directed at
majority views and (2) attempts to discuss minority views that may discredit
the status quo. Galileo narrowly escaped burning by doing both of these
things: (1) questioning the catholic church's concept of the earth as the
center of the universe and (2) attempting to discuss the possilibity that the
earth might revolve around the sun rather than vice versa. Other people were
less fortunate, e.g., Galileo's contemporary, Giordano Bruno, WAS burned at
the stake for the same heresy as were others. Galileo escaped because he
recanted his heresy....
As to whether gas chambers existed in concentration camps, I offer the
following. The Leuchter Report consisted of analyses of forensic samples
taken from the walls of alleged gas chambers at Auschwitz, Birkenau and
Majdanek. Control samples were taken from the fumigation cubicles at the same
camps. These cubicles are known to have been used solely for fumigation of
clothes and objects. There were 1,000 times more residues of Zyklon B in the
fumigation cubicles than in the alleged gas chambers.
The work was done by Fred Leuchter Associates in Boston, while the chemical
analysis was done by the Alpha Analytical Laboratories in Ashland,
Massachusetts. Mr. Leuchter has a "reputation as the country's leading
specialist in prison execution machinery." Leuchter is now under vigorous
attack because, e.g., he allegedly has only a bachelor's degree in history.
(Let's face it: degrees may or may not be a measure of competence, but that's
another topic for discussion.) Sources: The Boston Globe (October 1, 1990)

My point again is to discuss things with as many facts as possible. Another
example: I read, see and hear many of Bob Larson's diatribes. I don't agree
with much of what he says, often because it is factually unsupported. But
some of it is well done, e.g., his "First Family of Satanism" video with Zeena
LaVey and Nikolas Schreck, and I always learn something.
Now on to find the book(s) with the identical, side-by-side photos of
atrocities allegedly by the Nazis but which really MAY have occurred at the
time of the Russian Revolution. Hey, I wasn't there, so I'll never know for
sure, but learning is always interesting....
