funny, though, that they play with those clues even on the anthology ... in both "Free As A Bird" and "Real Love" you are reminded of the myth, maybe only if you're familiar with it. in "Real Love" you see paul play the guitar right handed and in "Free As A Bird" you see the car crash and maybe some more things. the crash returns on the "love" album. --- so someone [whoever a-hard-days-night-george-10] must be putting those there on purpose. it's fun though and keeps the legend alive. and, of course still helps sell records. ...

some of those PIDers, though, go way too far, they are really mean - not only to paul [who to them isn't paul], but also to everyone who has a more sane viewpoint. i don't know what planet they're living on. they must be deaf as well as blind. or easily deceived. those are the real sheeple. :) i just love how paul reacts to those questions, it must be the 2nd most annyoing thing right after "are the beatles getting back together?"

Maybe he finds it quite amusing as well, though? And flattered. Flattered either that people take this much interest in him, or that they think he's even more talented than the ''real'' Paul McCartney.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Isn't the car crash in the FAAB video a reference to A Day In The Life? Maybe there are two or Paul's lying underneath that one.

references always seem to be subjective ... whatever you want it to mean. it means something totally different to someone else. and, of course, no one can claim that anyone put anything there on purpose. a-hard-days-night-george-10 there are always several levels or layers of meaning to a song, that's part of why beatles music is still so successful.so, technically, you're right :)

Maybe Paul instead of being dead he has the power to talk to the dead! Like with Let It Be he talked to his mom who is not alive and how George Harrison helped Paul write friends to go from the grave.

True but then someone could claim Paul running on a wall was a clue as a brick wall could refer to a dead end and there is no greater end than death so Paul and death and you are at Paul is dead. Basically if you want to find a meaning to back up your claim you can. 

Nurse with a poppy tray. Poppies are what are used in the UK to remember those who have fallen. Paul wrote the song. Paul, fallen = dead. 

Tedious yes but so are 98% of the PID clues.

Paul is not dead. Yoko says so.

From her Q&A page

Brian Shepherd: Yoko did john ever tell you the truth if Paul McCartney was really killed in a car crash years ago and was replaced by another look alike? I doubt he did but I will ask anyhow
Yoko: I just spoke with Paul a few days ago. He is definitely alive and well. And getting wiser and wiser. Writing good new songs.

Her Q&A's are light years ahead of Paul's.

Yay! I'm glad Yoko is digging some of Paul's new songs!

 

Here's a news story about it.

Each week, Yoko Ono opens the floor for fan questions of any stripe, from her philosophy on art and outlook on life, to her music career and that of her husband John Lennon — both solo and with the Beatles. This week, she confirmed something that’s long been perculating among conspiracy theorists who think Lennon’s former bandmate Paul McCartney was killed at the height of their fame.

“I just spoke with Paul a few days ago,” Ono says, in the newly posted fan Q&A. “He is definitely alive and well.”

This particular urban legend dates back to 1967, when some believe that McCartney died in a car accident and was replaced by a body double. A few particularly resourceful sleuths even sorted out a series of clues, buried in the songs and album sleeves of the Beatles’ next few albums. The group’s press office was forced, at one point in 1969, to actually rebuke the rumors. And yet for some — though clearly not Ono — the question persists.

Ono, also discussed being a fan of McCartney’s latest studio effort, called New. She says her husband’s former bandmate is “getting wiser and wiser,” and that he is also “writing good new songs.”

From this thread I can conclude that there are several Pauls, perhaps one for every person on this planet, and they are all dead. We are now living in a post-apocalyptic nightmare filled with ghost-Pauls.

When I was like 12 I rellay began to read a lot of the beatles tory and watch interesting videos. I one day I get on that thing Paul is dead. When I look back know i feel stupid because I actually belevied for some dayes that it's was all true, all the clues were really good I couldn't argue but, I said to myself, no it can't be it's the Beatles man. They did it on purpuse, I sometimes think of if John was alive(god bless him) what would he say to the tv when we ask : did you say I buried Paul or Cranberry Sauce on Strawberry Fields Forever ? I think he'll laugh at all this stupid thing hahaha.
