You're as far offbase as anyone could ever be. Why should I believe in reincarnation? Why should I believe that it was ever possible to cremate 6000+ bodies on a daily basis at Auschwitz using at most 46 cremation muffles each of which is capable of handling at most one body per hour? They're examples of mysticism. If you want a better example of something close to astrology you might open up Rabbi Benjamin Blech's book THE SECRETS OF HEBREW WORDS to page 214. Blech discusses some ancient Hebrew prophecies of "ye shall return" about returning to Israel and informs that the character "vav" is missing from the correct Hebrew spelling of "ye shall return." He then goes on to explain that in numerological terms the character "vav" has the value of six and that this omission of the character with the value six was a prophecy of the alleged Holocaust. Now that's mysticism akin to UFOs.Chris OConnor wrote:I'm sure you believe in some of the above or maybe in UFO's, astral projection, astrology, ESP, reincarnation, telepathy, and other such extraordinary claims. Am I hitting the nail on the head?
In fact as early as 1900 Zionist organizations were carrying the number six million. Go back to the NEW YORK TIMES of June 11, 1900, and read the report on Rabbi Stephen Wise's address from the previous day:
"There are 6,000,000 living, bleeding, suffering arguments in favor of Zionism."
The six million number was being circulated by Zionist groups for some decades before Hitler even came to power. In the context of WWII propaganda that number was converted into the basis for a story of atrocity-mongering. UFO believers might tell you that Wise was seeing the future as a prophet. I'm simply pointing out that Wise made this number up based upon the kind of religious mysticism which Blech finds in the missing "vav" character.
