You probably should have said this in your OP so that we wouldn't expect you to actively participate in your own thread.

You and I have different definitions of evidence. It sounds to me like you are evaluating the past with the future. For example, whatever happens in Germany 1000 yrs from now will be evidence of the original function of the gas chambers. If the ovens survive that long, whatever the country does with them in 1000 years will decide their original function. If they become planter boxes or are absorbed into a sewer system, whatever value Germans attach to them in the future will decide how they originally functioned. It is very difficult to follow this line of reasoning.

It is not surprising your opinion changed since you were 16, most don't hold the same opinions as they mature. I could almost guarantee your opinions will change again in the next 20 yrs. You may think you've reached the pinnacle of your journey, but if you will look back on that 16 yr old, you will understand how young your opinions are in my eyes.
