    Japanese War Crimes Denial?

    I stumbled upon this (which has a lovely touch of Translation-ese): "Society for the Dissemination of Historical Fact" Society for the Dissemination of Historical Fact From what I can gather they are trying to re-alight a religious fervency in support of the emperor and are trying to deny many...

    Here is why Hitler wasn't evil(No holocaust denial)

    Everyone says Hitler was evil. Everyone says Hitler was a sociopath, or a psycho, or sadist. I think Hitler was none of these things, and I'll tell you why(without justifying what the Nazi regime did) Who was Hitler in the first place? Hitler was an Austrian man who was born in a rural village...

    Turkish denial of genocide

    I don't like that this issue often gets brushed to the Wayside. It's basically as if Germany denied ever committing the Holocaust. The Turks murdered millions of Greeks Armenians Assyrians and other Christians, yet they deny what they did was genocide when basically the entire world knows that...

    Hoover's denial of the Mob

    Why for decades did J Edgar Hoover keep denying the existence of the Mafia? Surely he must have heard of Al Capone and his organised crime network in Chicago? He headed the FBI at the time. Didnt the FBI have officers there? Did they work with Elliot Ness and the US Treasury which nailed him...

    Chinese denial of the world's roundness

    China did not learn the world was round until the 17th century when they learned it from Jesuits. Now, there are two reasons for this. Either A: China was two thousand year behind Greek astronomy (I don't buy this) B: China was in denial of this for political reasons (it defies the notion...

    Arguments against Holocaust Denial

    So I've recently met someone who is intent that the Holocaust never happened. I would like to here everyones reasonings on the subject (along with sources). If you support Holocaust Denial, you probably don't want to read this thread, as it's doubtful you will be able to survive the site of...

    Knowledge of 1916-1922 Greek/Armenian/Kurdish/Assyrian Genocide, verse denial of it.

    Just how many people on this Forum, and, (if we can find out), throughout the world in modern day times, actually believe the following, and how many people deny it, or don't believe it happened at all. That the 1916-1922 Genocide of Greek, Armenian, Kurdish, and Assyrian Christians by the late...

    Holocaust denial question

    Holocaust laws and freedom of speech

    There is an interesting discussion related to the Holocaust (killings of Jews during the World War II) and the right of people to say what they think. Unfortunately, in the previous thread, this discussion got mixed up with the Holocaust denial. This has confused the poll questions to the...

    The Denial of Athenian Naval Manliness

    During the Period of the Peloponnesian War the rower began to see increasing importance over the mainstay of Greek Warfare, the hoplite. Aristocratic sources even seem to confirm this. (Old Oligarch) They were said to deserve political power because they were more important in enforcing and...

    Denial of faith during times of persecution

    In the 3rd Century CE a knotty dilemma arose for the leaders of the Christian Church in the Roman Empire - what to do with believers who had abandoned their faith in the face of persecution, but were now trying to rejoin the Church? During the successive persecutions of the emperors Decius...

    Holocaust denial - what's the point?

    I live in a fairly obscure part of an obscure American state...yet I am personally acquainted with several Holocaust survivors. I have the grandson of an Auschwitz survivor in my speed-dial. Now it seems to me that it's pretty much a historical fact, impossible or very nearly so to sanely...

    The Denial of History

    I am interested in compling a list of historical facts that are denied by revisionists and labeled with pseudoscience. I've been told by Pericles that Atlantis is not history even though it is: http://classics.mit.edu/Plato/timaeus.html "The greatest mass of an iceberg is hidden unseen...
