Did you know that most science is based on math? Yeah math that hated subject that appears to be the key to the universe. Math is responsible for may great things like when Milton Friedman proved mathematically that capitalism in its purest form is by far the superior economic system helping many more people than socialism or communism every could hope to do. He actually received a Nobel Peace prize in Economics. Not bad for a mathematician.
The point I’m hoping that most of you are getting here is that most of the universes truths has been and can be discovered by mathematics. If we can agree on that (and unless you’re a complete moron you must) we can move forward.
One of the most controversial issues is the so called Jewish Holocaust. Some believe everything they have been told while others claim that it is a complete fabrication claiming that not only did 6 million Jews not perish in German detainment facilities, that 6 million Jews didn’t perish at all.
Now we can do the whole he said she said nonsense but all of that is subjective and almost entirely based on hearsay. There is a reason why American courts and juries take eyewitness accounts with a grain of salt and totally dismiss them if the math and science don’t add up just like with the Michael Brown case in which dozens of people came forward claiming that Brown had his hands up int the air trying to surrender when the cop shot him to death.
So let’s look at the 6 million Holocaust claim from a mathematical point of view.
First of all 6 million Jews would have represented roughly 1/3 of the entire worlds Jewish population at the time. To date, no one, group or organization has been able to show any real drop in the world wide Jewish population during WWII. You’d think someone might have noticed that and recorded it but to the contrary the Jewish population actually increased.
But let’s get right to the elephant in the room Auschwitz.
The original claim was that 4 million Jews were gassed or shot at the Auschwitz detainment facility. To any thinking person this would be an insane claim and this number has been modified to 1 1/2 million Jews and yet the overall number of Jews killed by Germans in detainment facilities did not change. Mathematically this looks like this (using m for millions) 4m-2.5m=4m and 6m-2.5m=6m. If you showed these figures to your algebra teacher you would fail the class. But this isn’t the only math that doesn’t add up.
Auschwitz had 52 cremation ovens at its peek. Cremation in modern high tech crematory ovens takes 2 – 2 1/2 hours on average. Using these figures each oven at Auschwitz could cremate 9 bodies per day which equals 3,285 people per year or 16,425 between 1940 and 1945 per oven. That is a total of 854,100. The 854,100 is assuming that the ovens at Auschwitz were every bit as capable as modern equipment and that the ovens were working around the clock nonstop for 5 years. Clearly that would be impossible.
As much as I would like to go into the details of why anyone would make such a claim and even more why people swallowed and obvious impossibility that is not what this Op-ed is about. We are simply dealing with one piece of the truth puzzle here which is that the math doesn’t add up.
