No one is denying that those people died in those camps. No one is denying the numbers. But you have to accept that the only evidence we have is Hossler, survivor testimony, and allied photos after it all happened. Those links are photos of after it all happened. Those are not Nazi photos taken as the killing or death was going on.
The Auschwitz camp shown to tourists today is for show. The Poles admit that. Much of the camp was severely damaged. They admit it's a 1948 reconstruction, and it's a very poor reconstruction at that. The chimneys are ridiculously short. If they gassed people in that manner, even people standing around outside the gas chamber would've died.
You can't seriously be suggesting the plethora of photos were all, each and every one of them, staged. That's ridiculous.

This series is taken after liberation - so you're correct - are you suggesting the Americans imported starving actors to pose as prisoners who had to engage in forced labor with not enough calories?

Actually, no... what you described was more naïveté than ignorance.

Why are you under the impression that others are under the impression that we know all there is to know?

Nah. While there are some really great principles, I don't particularly like nationalism or socialism in general. I'm more for federalism and capitalism.
But I assume you meant that as some kind of insult, to call me a Nazi. This is the mentality nowadays. One has to believe the most sick and heinous version of the story, and if one believes anything less then they are branded neo-Nazi or holocaust deniers or whatever else.
You're basically denying history and writing propaganda for Nazis, hence my words. It sounded like you were talking about all the high points of the Golden Era for Nazism.

Christian doctors have been known to rape women. God was a much bigger mass murderer than Hitler. And if "children" means anyone under the age of 18, then I can assure you they are having sex.

How do you explain underage abortions if children are not having sex?

Yes, but not a very funny one.

How about this?

Four nuns all died at the same time in a car wreck and next thing you know they are standing in line at the pearly gates waiting for St. Peter. When St. Peter arrived he asked the first nun if she had ever sinned. And she said yes, she had once seen a man's penis. St. Peter told her to wash her eyes out in the bowl of holy water and enter through the pearly gates to heaven. The second nun stepped forward and confessed she had once touched a man's penis and St. Peter instructed her to wash her hands in the holy water and enter heaven. The fourth nun pushed the third nun out of the way and said, I can see where this is going and if I am going to have to gargle the holy water I want to do so before she [the third nun] has to wash her ass in it.

Good point, RR won't because he can't, exactly right. He falsely believes he has free will and decides his thoughts, feelings, indeed everything that he calls his life, but he is a prisoner and a slave to his upbringing and he does not know how to escape from it. Not that anyone can escape from their baggage, but one can see it for what it is and stop manifesting from it, stop believing hearsay is indisputable fact.
No. microwave popcorn is poison.

http://health.howstuffworks.com/diseases-cond...

Just take a half cup of regular popcorn, put it in a brown paper "lunch" bag, roll the end over twice, seal it with tape, put it in the microwave, set it for 2:30 and watch it. Stop it when the popping slows so it doesn't burn. Add as much or as little salt and drawn butter as your tastes require. Boom. Non-toxic microwave popcorn, more delicious, and a bargain, to boot.

Zebras didn't/don't "know" to evolve stripes. Evolution isn't an intentional, willful act on the animal's part.
Every once in a while, an animal is born a trait that makes a little different from the rest.
If that trait gives the animal an advantage over the rest, then the animal's chances of living long enough to mate and pass on that trait are increased.
If the trait is disadvantageous, the animal is more likely to die before mating and passing on that trait.
Give the process time to repeat and we wind up with animals that are well suited to their environment... like Zebras are to the African bush.
Hmmm.....time.

Let's say 2 billion years since the first multicell animals.

Let's say 2000 years, quite arbitrarily, for recorded history. BC/AD thing.

I will be the first to say my math skills ain't real developed, so if someone can verify, I would appreciate.

2,000,000,000 divided by 2000 equals 1 million, right?

So, just using more or less our recorded history of the historical Jesus, that time would be only one millionth of the time since the first multicell organisms evolved. Right?

Now, if we say modern man is 20,000 years old, then that would be 1/100000th of that same time. Right?

Those are much better odds than winning Lotto.

Correct me if those numbers are wrong.

Wow, evolution sure works fast, doesn't it?

A lot can be said for what Hitler did for Germany before the war. Yes, he eradicated unemployment. Okay, it must be said that this was done by building bombs, tanks and guns. It would not be so easy to step into a country like ours and accomplish the same.
So the people of your country are smarter than the German people listening to Hitler? In America there was no unemployment on the plantations in the south, but that is hardly a good thing.

When German prisoners of war were in America they played football with white American soldiers in the camps. Black American soldiers could not play football with white people but German prisoners of war could. Sometimes these German POW's were taken from the camps and driven into town to watch movies with their guards in movie theaters that were off limits to black Americans. German pow's could enjoy white America but black American citizens could not.

I was referring to people in the 1200's, as an example - you can pick a different century, as far as their ignorance was comparred to ours. We see things like TV's, radios, lighters, kitchen cabinets, cars, etc as regular, everday things. I think a person from the 1200's would see those as amazing, mystical and probably even magical.
No. You were talking about 13th-Century ignorance, and saying that ours was somehow equivalent.

Why do whales have pelvic bones?
If (in an elementary sense) evolution is right and life started in the oceans, then at some point a fish grew some legs (and eyes, skin, lungs, et to live on land) then later that creature decided living on land wasn't so good so it went back to the water but kept its pelvic bone and lungs.
O_o
The answer is here:

www.talkorigins.org

I've pointed out this wonderful,resource to you many times, yet, you cling so shabbily to your mythology as to be laughable.

Why did your "designer":

1. Allow an ovum to adhere to any part of the female reproductive system, not just the cervix, leading to ectopic pregnancy which, without modern medicine, can kill the mother along with the baby?

2. Allow for the head of the fetus to be occasionally too large for the pelvic canal? Prior to C-sections, this invariably led to the death of mother and child.

3. Have the testes form in the abdomen of a male which later descend into the scrotum, leaving two very vulnerable points in the abdominal wall where hernias frequently develop? Prior to modern surgery, death from things such as gangrene and intestinal blockage were a common occurrence with such hernias.

4. Give ostriches wings?

5. Make the retina inside out on a human eye, leading to blind spots?

6. Tie the autonomic breathing response not to a lack of oxygen but to the presence of carbon dioxide, leading to very dire consequences of oxygen deprivation at higher altitudes?

7. Make plants green when black plants would more efficiently store energy?

8. Not anticipate the extinction of 99% of species that have ever existed?

9. Put the sewer next to the playground?

The list is endless.

Before you try to lamely argue that evolution couldn't account for these seeming "mistakes", evolution is not guided nor is it "survival of the fittest". It is simply the change in alleles over time and is influenced by many variables, enviornment being only one.

Your argument from ignorance is a failure.
