If I make an observation. From the historical evidence US Army
and others at the time I believe that a holocaust happened. That
being said let me ask this question: Did the allies actually and
in fact recover/retrieve 6 million bodies or was the number even
higher and this was some kind of an estimate? I guess my
question is what does the evidence show?

I ask this because somewhere in my education, I recall somebody
put out the number 10 million. What I find is the popular number
is 6 million and now some articles allegedly based on
excavations around the camps, not to mention historical records
allege that the total number of people killed during the
holocaust may be no greater then 2 million. Does not change the
fact it happened, just that the popular numbers everybody quotes
were allegedly wrong.

The theory that the moon landing was actually some giant hoax is
just as bad as the notions about ET going to land on a mountain
top in Arizona in December of 2000 and the alleged Mars photos
allegedly downloaded off of some server in Arizona that were
apparently manipulated coming and going. Just another theory.

Robert
