I wonder whether such a show, if concerned with denial of the holocaust of world war II, would have been conceived?

  1. It is science that that refutes the climate change deniers. It is also science that
    Holocaust revisionists use that so easily refute the wild assertions of so called "eye witness" survivors. There is forensically verifiable documented evidence that confirms the names, the age, the race, the gender, the crimes for which capital punishment was imposed, the date and the place of 587 men and 7 women who were executed in homicidal gas chambers in the U.S. No one has ever provided forensically verifiable documentary evidence of the name of even one person executed in any alleged gas chamber in Auschwitz. Not one. Give that some serious thought




    give that some serious thought

  2. WTF kind of irrelevant and utterly ignorant comment is that?! The evidence that cyanide was used in those gas chambers is all over the internet, and suggesting that poor book-keeping by the Nazis proves otherwise is not skepticism.
