Are "Revisionists" Holocaust deniers?

Attempts to Resolve the Contradiction Through Communication: Greg Raven

Mr. Raven, arguably the most blatant self-contradictor, has been presented with this logic many times before, and has refused to elaborate on his reasoning. Here are several attempts to contact him:

  1. August 1996
  2. September 1996
  3. October 1996
  4. November 1996

Greg Raven's reply to this last attempt was received a few days later.

Of course, it is his definition, as seen above.

Mr. Raven also included a copy of his essay, Defining the 'Holocaust': a Proposal, which is little more than an attempt to reverse his 1994 definition and to insist, now, that the term should refer to all mistreatment of Jews, by the Nazis and all other combatants, 1939-1945.

Mr. Raven presents a case that this is what the word should mean, but in doing so, he quotes numerous sources which affirm what the word does mean. Look at the accepted definitions he cites from dictionaries, encyclopaedias, scholars, Jewish organizations, historical organizations and numerous unnamed sources:

Mr. Raven's essay has made it more clear than ever that, when one uses the term "Holocaust," the understood meaning is that of the systematic murder of six million Jews by the Nazi state.

And, as seen above, this fact of history is something which he and his colleagues deny.
