Re: Research Article: Wikipedia’s Intentional Distortion of the History of the Holocaust

Grabowski et.al. realize this gas chamber in the Warsaw Concentration camp was phony*, now it’s time for others to point out the absurdity of the other gas chambers. * https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warsaw_concentration_camp#Discredited_extermination_camp_story 61EDBC81-A8FF-4477-BAC3-BEECF44FDF30.pn...

Re: Should Humanity go extinct?

Overpopulation is a MYTH. We were supposed to peak at 14 billion (or higher!) people, then they revised down to 12 billion, then 11, now 10.4. They may soon revise it down even lower. Atmospheric pollution is currently the lowest in decades in most developed countries and global pollution is stayin...

Re: Should Humanity go extinct?

I’ve been a doomer since 1973, read “The Population Bomb” (my mom bought the book) and “Limits to Growth.” Extinction will come from overpopulation, peak oil and pollution (climate change). Don’t believe there are other planets with intelligent life. Earth is unique. Read this book too: https://en....

Re: Research Article: Wikipedia’s Intentional Distortion of the History of the Holocaust

It’s an inquisition into “reliable sources.” A cabel of editors got together off-wiki and bullied their POV into the article. I’m not sure what tipped the Revisionists off, maybe the phony, impractical gas chamber at the Warsaw Concentration camp article. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warsaw_concent...

Re: Research Article: Wikipedia’s Intentional Distortion of the History of the Holocaust

Haha, this “Holocaust in Poland” incident is potentially being arbitrated: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case#Holocaust_in_Poland Reliable sources (revisionists, aka Holocaust deniers) proved the gas chamber there was phony. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warsaw_concent...

Re: Research Article: Wikipedia’s Intentional Distortion of the History of the Holocaustsens

The part about the gas chamber in a railway tunnel made a lot of sense. The theory, refuted by mainstream historians, contends that KL Warschau was an extermination camp operating a giant gas chamber inside a tunnel near Warszawa Zachodnia railroad station and that 200,000 mainly non-Jewish Poles we...

Vast majority of users are on mobile devices; desktop users can adjust margins, complainers don’t know how to adjust?
