Snowjob, I presented an alternative interpretation, nothing more. I did not negate or support either side of the PID issue, just presented an
alternative interpretation of the evidence presented.
Paul went from more refined to less refined. "Manly" is subjective. I don't know why Paul would want to make himself less attractive... B/c the
girls were certainly not impressed w/ his looks post 1966.
Less refined is subjective as well, yet people who have plastic surgery do so to repair a perceived flaw. While the work may appear to us, the general
public, as worse, the flaw the individual perceived is gone. Michael Jackson is a perfect example of someone who had surgery to increase his
attractiveness, in his eyes, yet failed miserably, in other's eyes.
Paul's "growth spurt" just happened to coincide w/ a change in eye color & change in facial features. To account for those changes, he would have
had to have had a series of extensive & painful surgeries, but the requisite scars aren't to be seen. Neither was his singing career impacted, which
is also extremely unlikely. This is according to forensic scientists, but the way.
People can grow over six inches in a year. I did not believe it possible until it happened to me as an adult after being told I had reached my full
height. I am not saying it happened in this case, but am pointing out, while uncommon, it is possible and does happen. An acquaintance has added two
inches to his height in his forties.
Except Paul's always looked brown or light brown, while Faul clearly has green eyes. Also, it's been documented that Paul had brown eyes, although
he himself said hazel. Either way, that's not green. My eyes are green, & they will look blue, but they would never in a million years look brown or
hazel. I understand no one wants to believe Paul was replaced, but I just don't think you can explain this away very easily:
Hazel eyes are notorious for "changing color". Someone very close to me has eyes which change color. The eyes, described as hazel by the person,
have appeared everywhere from a medium gray to medium brown, but also included bright green, gold, "solid" brown, honey, and on rare occasions,
blue. My own eyes, which I describe as brown, have been known to appear green hazel, honey hazel, orange, and in some instances red. Lighting ,
clothing color, and even room colors can enhance one shade or the other in both of us. The color has changed throughout my life and continues to do
so, just as the person who has the hazel eyes.
The points made are not to negate yours, just to point out circumstances which can and do occur.
I see you offer no opinion on the possibility the "Paul death" references could have been metaphorical. My ex best friend is "dead" to me, yet she
is very much alive and still doing horrible things to unsuspecting people. The person she was is dead and gone and the person she has become is
nothing like the former.
If anything, the pictures have shown that at some point in the sixties, there were doubles being used, but celebrities still utilize lookalikes to
distract. Britney Spears has been known to use several.
Just because there are pics of a man who certainly has different features, when scrutinized, does not mean anyone was killed in an accident or
murdered. I feel there is proof of doubles utilized at some point, just not proof of the why
and when that is proven, the how
Here's another out there possibility. Do I believe it? No. Could it be possible? Yes.
Out there, but possible, theory: The real Paul had an incredible talent, but was shy. A lookalike was used to stand in in the Beatles early days,
until Paul could become comfortable in the spotlight. When the real Paul was comfortable, the rumor was spread and they stopped touring to bring the
real Paul in.
