Two weeks ago I visited an 85-year old lady in a hospice who was dying frim a flesh eating disease. She died the next day. When I saw her, she was unconscious and heavily narcosed. Her feet had already "died" and displayed a slightly brownish, medium grey color over most of both feet. This is important for this discussion because I am sure from my own experience as a photographer that if I had photographed those feet in color, even with a modern digital camera--the resulting images could have easily appeared somewhat "bluish." That is what happens all too easily with many types of photographic images as demonstrated by the photo from Wikipedia posted by Occam's Razor--even without any Photoshop enhancement.
But, but, but--when one sees the actual subject in reality--with reasonably normal eyes in normal light--there is NO confusion: there is NO blue or bluish coloring at all.
It used to be much worse in the good old days of color fllm and the images in Gresham's book are good examples of that. " Balancing" the color with the use of a "neutral gray card" was an important requirement for making reasonably accurate color photos.The next time someone talks about "blue" veins or whatever--look closely if you possibly can at the actual subject--and you will see that there is nothing there but "gray" or an an absence of coloring. The blue is NOT really there in women's varicose veions either. Nonetheless, it is a fact that people often interpret such subjects as "blue" without necessarily being outright liars. It is a purely psychological phenomenon that comes into play when the object is small like a fingernail. If the object is large like an entire body, the illusion does NOT occur and that is why there are NO photos that appear to show "blue corpses." I think doctors understand this generally but also realize how important it is to give a name to this extremely important diagnostic phenomenon--and that is the basis for the continuing use of the terms "cyanosis" or "cyanotic." It is used to describe things that are essentialy far more colorless and pale or grey than normaL.
In a similar way, hydrocyanic acid is called "Blausaeure"
in German ("blue acid" if translated literally) even though the acid itself is totally colorless and so is the gaseous form. For some holocaust liars, however, including so-called "holocaust scholars" these simple facts are unknown and so they trap themselves with their gross ignorance as to the historic origin of the word.
There is absolutely NO real "BLUE" coloring present in cyanosis at all. For all his interesting info in his posts above, Occam's Razor provides absolutely NO reason technically or chemically for why the coloring of oxygen-poor blood should appear "blue" through the skin. The skin is NOT some kind of blue filter. The arguments of Charles S. Provan about "blue corpses" are pure bunk just as his insistence that the entire universe was "c-r-e-a-t-e-d," by you know who, about ten thousand years ago are also pure bunk. In typical "creationist" fashion however, Provan was able to disguise his specious arguments with references to some examples of serious scientific literature. He also tweaked the meaning of some keywords just as "holocaust scholars" tweak the meaning of "Endloesung"
to mean "extermination."
But it was never anything but pure bunk, nonetheless. Shame on everyone who fell for him.Friedrich Paul Berg

Nazi Gassings Never Happened! Niemand wurde vergast!
The Holocaust story is a hoax because 1) no one was killed by the Nazis in gas chambers, 2) the total number of Jews who died in Nazi captivity is miniscule compared to what is alleged.
