After looking at all the pictures in this thread, I find the current Paul and teen Paul look more similar than the early Beatles Paul and the late 60's to late 70's versions. The current Paul and the younger Paul both have long faces. Beatles Paul has a round face and the later incarnations all vary.

If the pre Beatles Paul pics match the aged man now, but not the early Beatles and Wings Paul, are the young pic in circulation not the real Paul or is it the real Paul and the early Beatles version an impostor, a face for the fans and the real Paul wanted his glory and threw the fakes out?

Ethera, it's just "optical illusion". Through the late 60s and the 70s especially, Paul was either setting or following the fashions which in those days could change every month. Think about all those makeover shows on TV: all they do is give someone a new hairdo and a new set of clothes and then their friends/colleagues hardly recognise them. Throw in a "V" moustache (which makes the face appear longer), a load of different facial expressions, lighting conditions, camera angles and lens types, and a dose of natural ageing, and you get all the "different" Pauls.

This is, basically, info-warfare being waged on the internet. Some of us are trying to reveal some information that some other people would rather keep hidden. I don't take it personally. They're just doing their jobs. JMO.

While he'll probably say we're wrong because we cannot "prove" his intent, I will choose to not feed the troll, who is doing a rather lame and amateurish job of disinfo. If he really was that skeptical he'd have been out of here in a flash. Clearly the motives are of an "alternate nature".

'Getsmart' by name but not by nature eh?

Yes a demand for proof of such a claim is a rather surprising one alright.

Well, it seems that you have not yet figured out that nobody here is on trial although you seem to have taken on quite the role as public accuser? If you don't like this thread, nobody has shackled you to it.

We are also entitled to our opinions, and you've had plenty of opportunity to voice yours. Keep it, nobody is trying to convince you. Be so kind as to give us a break by ceasing to dole out grief. ATS threads are not for flame wars.

Let us now go back to our discussion about various - plausible or implausible - hypotheses or unsubstantiated insights into what may or may not have transpired.

To get this thread back on track here is a neat theory about John Lennon's death.

Note: Opponents of any unproven hypotheses (by definition a hypothesis is not yet proven) or imaginative speculation without hard evidence should stick to reading court reports rather than purposely disrupt the free exchange of ideas, abstract concepts and sometimes inspired if unsubtantiated insight.

Disclaimer: This is NOT a claim. It is, like most of the ideas tossed about in this thread, just an idea. Nobody is suing anyone over this free speech medium. We are having healthy clean fun and at the same time entertaining our intellect with controversial thoughts. We are not held to adhere to, defend or support any assertions, given they are only stated here for the above stated purpose.

Here is the link suggesting that John Lennon was not assassinated by the officially designated culprit, but was executed by express order of political interest groups which John Lennon openly denounced and vehemently opposed. The identity of the alleged assassin is unusual to say the least. For your perusal:

Brilliant! True to form there!


So there is nothing that has been presented that even makes you think "Hmmm"?, no curiousity about nose shape, eye colour, strange happenings with ears, fake moustaches, strange circumstances, just situation normal with nothing odd at all?

You see, I tend to think that there is and while I can't absolutely prove it (obviously) I feel that there is a lot of information that when compiled together as a whole does start to make me go " Hmmmm".

Yes, you are entitled to your opinion just as I am to mine and it appears that we will never agree on this topic.

but hey, this is the internet and you can't willingly choose who will reply to threads and who won't so I'm happy to go along with that. It makes for interesting reading (sometimes) and is eye-opening as to how close-eyed some people are....especially, it seems, when it comes to someone they've 'pedestalled'...perish the thought...they couldn't do it to my idol, could they?....could they?

Wow, so your idea of getting this thread on track is to start posting about a completely seperate incident and basically unrelated subject matter.

Who is this 'we' you speak of. Are you part of a specific group?

Or do you see yourself as a representative for other 'pid' believers opinions also?

Also please spare me the little speech on forum ethics when you are trying to simultaneously accuse anyone with a contrary opinion of being a 'disinfo' agent.

Everyone is entitled to their opinions as am I.

This thread is discussing Paul McCartney, if you want to discuss the
murder of John Lennon then there are plenty of threads on here for you to do so like this one for example...

I think it's so funny how pm keeps saying that, even though I've posted legal definitions of evidence over & over. I guess he missed it the 1st 20 times I posted it?

1. that which tends to prove or disprove something; ground for belief; proof.

How amusing that Faulcon chooses every now and then to ensure she responds to those she has made a point of ignoring.


Who's this they you are referring to Faulcon?
Come on now. You obviously don't miss anything on here despite pretending that you do.

No one has asked for legal definitions. You are the one claiming things which you cannot prove are true and that you know these things for a FACT.

It's quite hypocritical (and bemusing) to then try and worm your way out of this by posting definitions of evidence for some strange reason.

Yep, if the cap fits....

I don't really think you're a troll, but I don't think you are adding anything new to this discussion either...your contentions have been dealt with time and time again and just as you are accusing the PID (for want of a better acronym) of not acknowledging posts, so can the same be applied to your methods of obfuscation.

Anyway, something smells in the land of the Fab Four and I'm not sure exactly what, but something definitely ain't right.

Distraction with irrelevant posts. ... Discussion is lost in the noise...

Distraction by voluminous postings with no information by blowhards and empty name-callers. (Can be hard to distinguish from genuine blowhards.) People who wallow in the mud do not need to outdebate you; they only need to drag you down there with them...

Planting of provocateurs (and sleeper agents, etc.). These people will vary from the posters who suddenly show up one day under an alias attacking regular posters, to people who seem like regular posters themselves. They may work in teams, supporting each other and giving the illusion of popular support on the net. (Remember, net IDs are basically free, and one person can have many.) ...

Some pics of young Paul have been tampered w/ to give him a long face. It's also possible that pics of young Faul have been introduced into the mix to confuse the situation.

As far as older Faul looking more like Paul than he did in the early stages, that may be b/c of more plastic surgeries, or his "Paul disguise" improved.


You believe the candid pics of a pre-Beatles Paul have been tampered with to create a more believable natural age related morph into Faul.

When do you believe the pics were tampered with? In the immediate aftermath of the alleged replacement? Now, using current technology? Would absolutely no one have candid pictures of early Paul?

Yes, plastic surgery could be responsible for the older Faul's look, but what I am pointing out is the the Beatles era Paul is the least like the alleged before Beatles or alleged after replacements being presented.

On the topic of plastic surgery, there is no way to know if Paul had surgery prior to his Beatles era days. If the alleged car accident I have seen listed around happened, wouldn't it be logical to conclude an accident of that magnitude, if not fatal, would be disfiguring and require a multitude of surgeries, rendering the subject much different in appearance from his prior state? If the car accident allegations are true, the need for doubles, the apparent multiple doubles, and the current McCartney's apparent surgery would all be explained. As for the supposed clues left on subsequent Beatles albums, expert marketing skills, twisted senses of humor, and admitted drug abuse would be logical basis assumptions.

If the cap fits eh? Well that explains a whole lot.

What contentions have been dealt with time and time again?

How about you go back through the last few pages where I have posted some interesting link and footage of Paul which was simply overlooked.

Possibly because Faulcon jumped in with yet more of the same old images taking up half the page as a response.

You make claims about obfuscation and then end on the claim that
''something definitely ain't right'' but you don't know exactly what!

Aye, double standards alright.

Those are excellent points. Backgrounds and environments influence the interpretation of what we are seeing greatly, as you pointed out. Clothing, hair, complexion, and weight have incredible influence on our perception of a person's look.

Drug and alcohol abuse and overall lack of self-care would also have contributed to rapid and premature aging, explaining why the alleged double appeared several years older.

I can't know when the tampering took place. Some people have vintage pictures of Paul that have not been tampered w/.

Well, there are a lot of pictures of Beatle-Paul, & no sign of major injury or scarring. He had a chipped tooth & a little scar from the moped accident Dec 1965, but that was hardly "disfiguring."

Nope, because I'm bringing my uncertainties out into the open, not shooting things down with a few unverified words.
There's a difference between obfuscation and uncertainty, but I don't need to school you on grammar now, do I?

Faulcon, that's rubbish and you know it well.
You have already been shown up on here for posting pictures of Paul, and then later re-posting them and claiming there were facial discrepanies and that it was in fact''Faul''.


If you can't even get your own 'evidence' right how do you expect anyone to take you seriously, it's completely shambolic.
