    Like assassinations and moon landings......... if it's other than the official conclusions drawn, then prove it!

    Just becasue it is the official conclusion - does not make it right either.

    Remember - it was the Russians who (supposedly) found the body of Hitler which then was burned.

    Now, I am not suggesting that Hitler actually made it to South America, but this is a possibility.
    This link has some things to think about

    I'm not suggesting that Brutus et al killed an imposter posing as Julius Caesar and that the real one escaped and made it to what would later be called South America... but it's not absolutely impossible.

    I recently watch a long drawn out program on this same question they looked under every rock and looked into every cranny, examined all the evidence and after all that say, it is very possible that he did escape... There is only one thing that we know for certain, he is not here now!... Brother Glen:)

    I've watched that Hitler series on the History Channel and found it a lot more interesting than I thought it'd be. It seems to me he may very well have for it seems many of his top generals did so why not him. None of this I guess matters now but it would demonstrate how population in mass could believing something that never was the case and that's the more interesting part of the story.

    We also can be confident that God judged him for his crimes against Humanity!

    I watched the first part of the show. However, they lost me when one of their "experts" posited H living int to the 60's. From all accounts, H was in failing health in '45. He was drug addicted and had problems from the failed bomb assassination.

    If he made a "deathbed confession" of his great evils and said he believed in Jesus, is he saved?

    Hitler would be almost 130 years old if he were alive today. (Born Apr. 20, 1889)
    And, I believe, had he escaped, the world woulda soon known, as it was not in his nature to keep a low profile. That's how Frank Sinatra responded to the argument that Elvis was still alive & staged his own death to escape from the public eye.

    And many of Hitler's homies had tried to get him to leave berlin for safety before it was surrounded.

    OTOH, Martin Bormann liked working behind the scene. He was a more-likely candidate for escape. while the rumor he'd escaped persisted for years, his body was found in 1972, and its ID was later confirmed by DNA testing.

    One nazi who DID escape successfully was Josef Mengele, the evil doctor who performed deadly experiments on prisoners. He drowned off the Brazilian coast in 1979 after suffering a stroke while swimming. His remains were positively IDd by a forensics team in 1985.

    There were likely many lower nazis who escaped justice, but almost all are dead now. I think even the govt. of Israel has ceased spending money trying to find any more of them, due to the passage of time.

    Yes, but he almost certainly didn't, as in the last note attributed to him, he blamed the Jews for starting the war (an outright blatant LIE!) and the loss of the war to a Jewish-Bolshevik coalition.

    He could have made it to the 60s. His crazy doctors were 99% of his problem.

    He believed in Jesus, but he never submitted to His Lordship.

    If he sincerely repented, yes, he would be saved.

    Is God mighty to save or isn't he?

    I think the low-down dirty rat died as the sniveling coward that he was.
