The discovery of a 2,000-year-old toilet at one of the world's most important archaeological sites is focusing renewed interest on a question that has preoccupied scholars for more than half a century: Who ... Full Story

OK. Not quite a 'worst job in science'

but I can think of better laboratories to work in.

Let me get this straight, archaeologists can find a toilet from 2,000 years ago, but they can't find the toilets at Treblinka, or anything else, much less the alleged huge mass graves where 870,000 jews were supposedly buried 65 years ago?(even with a $200,000.00 reward to help motivate them!) Look at the nafcash site and ask yourself, what's wrong with this picture?

Only on Topix is it possible to take a noncontro-
versial subject like this thread and, by inserting
one's own political ghosts and goblins, transform
it into a conspiracy thread. Nice try, anyway,

I heard they also found an elderly gentleman's skeleton nearby with several bottles of cologne and some hand towels. His hand was actually positioned as if he was accepting a tip.

That's a good one comncents, where did you "hear" that froM? Did you find it here?

http://www.historiography-project.org/nonsens...

asitis, just how long does it take for bone fragments to turn to dust? How much harder is it to find huge mass graves filled with bone "dust" than it is to find huge mass graves filled with crushed bone?

by the way asitis, if "the proof is there," then why haven't you won the Treblinka Crime Scene Investigation Challenge? Don't you need the money?

So what your saying then is no 870,000 died and according to the site you have furnished it says Auschwitz death toll too was exaggerated. Then if this is true no 6 million Jews were extreminated in the holocaust and that would mean Israel is and illigally being occupied by Jews because it states they need 6 million plus killed in a holocaust order to have to right of return. Therefore the land really belong to the Arabs and the jews should give this land back.

Is this what your trying to tell us? I say this because the site you supplied seems to think along those line too, it's just another Holocaust denying site plain and simple. Then why doesn't the site you supplied take the evidence it has and take it to the UN to have Israel returned to the Arabs then if the Holocaust is a hoax?

asitis, first, you can't deny something that never happened. But if you do beleive that the Treblinka holocaust happened, do you deny that the alleged Treblinka holocaust could very easily be scientifically / forensically proven? Have you ever heard of something called archaeology? How about forensic science? How about the scientific method? I repeat, if the proof is there, then why haven't you (or anyone else) won the Treblinka Crime Scene Investigation Challenge?

And second, I ask you again, just how long does it take for bone fragments to turn to dust?(according to you, it's less than 65 years) And just how much harder would it be to find huge mass graves filled with millions of pounds of bone "dust" than it would be to find huge mass graves filled with millions of pounds of crushed bone?(and lets not forget about the alleged tens of millions of teeth and tens of thousands of bullets and shell casings)

And for the record, I'm skeptical of the asinine claim that the Nazis not only committed the perfect crime at Treblinka, but also did it while allegedly murdering 870,000 people.(Thats the aprox. population of MT.) Do you believe you could kill every man, women and child in MT and not leave a trace asitis? Is this what your trying to tell us?

Oh, and one more thing asitis, the original claim was that 4 million people died at Auschwitz, but now the official claim is 1.5. I call claiming that, at the very least, 2.5 million more people died than actually died an exageration. Does that make me a "denier?" Do you believe that 6 - 2.5 = 6 asitis? I know you talk different up there in Montreal, but I always figured your math was the same. Here in America, 6 - 2.5 = 3.5. Go figure.

Oh, ok, I see. It's ok to exterminate 1.5 million people. Because the numbers were exagerated the Nazi's are cleared of wrong doing. LOL, I love the way you think

Dusty, how where you able, in that little mind of yours, to twist my words around so that you believed that what I said was that it was OK to murder 1.5 million people? Or that my stating the fact that the treblinka holocaust has been scientifically proven to be a fraud and that the auschwitz holocaust was, at the very least, fruadulently exaggerated by 2.5 million people, somehow cleared anyone of wrong doing? What kind of mental gymnastics routine was required for you to make such an illogical deduction? And what is so wrong about stating the fact that 6 - 2.5 = 3.5?And you mockingly say that you love the way I think??? Mmm, something tells me that you do more than just laugh out loud Dusty.(You don't happen to be a blond, do you?)

You need to educate yourself on why the jews refuse to accept any number lower than the sacred six million. You see dusty, you don't have to say that the holocaust didn't happen for the jews to brand you a "holocust denier," all you have to do is state the obvious fact that the sacred 6 million figure is a gross exaggeration. So, one more time, to help you all get this straight once and for all, 6 - 2.5 = 3.5 -.870 = 2.630. So Dusty,since asitis refused to answer me, I'll ask you, does it make me a holocuast "denier" to know math? And by the way Dusty, I'm not LOL, but I am laughing at you.

I'm sorry Kim, I never ment to question your math abilities. What I am questioning is your reasoning that because the numbers may have been exagerated and that it has been "proven" scientifically that Treblinka exterminations are a myth. Nothing has been proven or disproven. Maybe the numbers have been exagerated but does that change the fact that "millions" were exterminated? And...laugh all you want, we all are too.

Uh Dusty, I have some news for you. It HAS been proven that the Auschwitz gas chamber is a fraud. Please view this vidio (it was shot by a Jew by the way)

http://www.reportersnotebook.com/video/david_...

And it HAS been proven that the Treblinka Holocaust is a total fabrication. Please view this vidio

http://www.codoh.com/video/treblinka.mpg

And Dusty, I'm affraid Kimo was right about your poor logic. There is nothing wrong with her reasoning or her facts. It is you who needs an education in history and logic. I'm laughing at you also Dusty, because if as you say, nothing has been proven about Treblinka, then what is the basis for your belief in the Treblinka Holocaust?

Uh Dusty? You really shouldn't be questioning anyone elses reasoning abilities. I'm laughing at you also. If, as you say, nothing has been proven or disproven at Treblinka, then what is the basis for your beleif in the Treblinka Holocaust? But not only is your reasoning faulty, your "facts" are wrong also. Please take a look at this vidio

Looks like I'm the one being laughed at now. I guess I need to learn to wait and see if my post gets put up befor thinking it didn't go through. As long as I'm here, let me share with you all another great vidio that exposes the Treblinka myth

I'm sort of confused--how did a topic on a 2000 year old toilet turn into a discussion on the validity of the Holocaust?
