Greetings, I know this isn't really a conspiracy but it doesn't fit in the other sections.
I'm discussing the holocaust with someone on youtube, however I have next-to-no knowledge on the subject and don't want to let emotion get the better of me.
It's been over 70 years and I want to know what advancements have taken place to prove scientifically that:
The buildings were used as Gas Chambers.
Where the 6 Million figure came from and how we know it exists.
How we know it was government policy to exterminate just Jews.
This person's argument is:
Typhus epidemic and other diseases killing tens of millions throughout the war.
Allied bombing destroyed Germany's infrastructure so no food got to the camps.
Why would Germany destroy their much-needed slave work force.
6 Million figure biblical, apparently it would discredit the Jewish religion if the state of Israel was created without that text coming true.
6 million figure used during World War One during Jewish fund raising campaigns in America and during Roman times. (so the number has significance?)
Lack of real scientific evidence to support the holocaust claim, eye witnesses that recanted their story in the 1985 trials in Canada.
Soviet Archives having the Auschwitz registry logs after it was claimed they had been destroyed by the Germans.
I've browsed through Wikipedia but it's very biased. I need someone with a scientific mind and knows the facts.
