The result is predetermined, ie convinced Paul is dead, so clues appear to match what you’re looking to prove. Fitting the scene to match what you want to find, something Grissolm talks about in CSI. I watched the first bit where they drew the name of a cemetery, I’m pretty much I could find ”Paul is dead, he really is. It’s true, I tell you, he really is. Sorry. All our love, John, George and Ringo.” if I looked hard enough.

Thanks for watching snips of it, hasn’t been watched in full yet though, youtube provides realtime data these days!

 

The new clues are the name he was buried under, the cemetery he was buried in…along with a few more clues.

 

The name has been checked with official records of Pleasington cemetery in Blackburn Lancashire, and clearly show that he was buried there, and exhumed in 1996..

 

Disagreeing doesn’t make it untrue, unfortunately.

So you found the name of some random guy who was buried in some cemetery in 1966 and decided he was Paul McCartney and to include his name and where he was buried in an hour long YouTube video? I’m all for being creative, but I find that super disrespectful. You don’t just go around making up weird stuff about random dead people.

LITTLE PIGGY DRAGON GUY: “So you found the name of some random guy who was buried in some cemetery in 1966 and decided he was Paul McCartney and to include his name and where he was buried in an hour long YouTube video? I’m all for being creative, but I find that super disrespectful. You don’t just go around making up weird stuff about random dead people.”

 

If that’s the shameful conclusion you’ve drawn after watching the video then shame on you, I take some offence to that statement, but its more of a reflection of your own mind than mine. Worth noting, you’re the only person in all the comments I’ve ever received (from whatever side) to suggest such a decrepit thing. Anyone who watched it couldn’t possibly draw that conclusion unless they were so fearful of the truth that it made them warp their senses. Get a grip.

 

You’d previously asked why you couldn’t see the “L”…. How could i, or anyone else for that matter, know the answer to that? Some folk have the eyes to see, some folk don’t…..Im guessing you fall into the latter bracket.

Isn’t this going to be one of those discussions where anyone who disagrees will be told they are unable to see the truth and so quickly dismissed?

Nothing wrong with disagreeing surely? Besides, one’s personal ability to comprehend such things versus another’s lack of comprehension will ensure that disagreement exists.

I just got this little number off of amazon.  This movie was my introduction to the PiD conspiracy.  I figured it would be fun to own a physical copy.141705606_123519776288141_6018670694870838411_n.jpg

Hey, @William Shears Campbell, is William Shears Campbell a real person, or made up? I’m not that familiar with all the elements of this conspiracy theory.

Good question.  It’s been a few years since I really dug into the PiD conspiracy, but I do recall seeing a few places that said William Shears Campbell was a real person giving him a birthplace and date.  However, that can easily be made up.  I don’t believe he was actually a real person because I’ve also heard that William Campell was a name made up when the original joke article was written.  The name was a play on Glen Campell, which is the name they were originally gonna use, but they figured that would be too obviously fake.  Then Shears comes in beause of Billy Shears from Sgt Pepper .

Interesting. I came across a recent interview someone did with William Shears Campbell.

I will give my opinion on this **** once and for all. (Censored for younger users)

This myth is awful. 

Reasons why it’s rubbish: 

1. Why would they cover up Paul’s death? Well, I guess they could cover up his death, but why leave clues?

2. The clues make no sense. What does “Turn me on, dead man” have to do with Paul? That sounds like something John would say to Peter Fonda when he wants more pot. The people who looked for clues tried to make excuses out of every damn thing the Beatles did.

3. The “replacement” Paul wrote the following: Hey Jude , Let it Be, The middle of A Day In The Life , Hello Goodbye , The Long And Winding Road , Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da , Blackbird , Helter Skelter , Penny Lane , She’s Leaving Home , and Many More! So, that means the new Paul is also a songwriting phenomenon. 

4. Replacement Paul looks, sounds, acts, and writes just like Paul!

5. How would Paul be able to answer all of these questions?

6. “Billy Shears” is Ringo’s alter ego. Not some Canadian police officer. By the way, I’m honored that Paul is representing Ontario on his Sgt. Pepper suit. 

7. Even with plastic surgery, no one can look exactly like Paul. 

8. If Paul was dead, The Beatles wouldn’t carry on with their career. They would be nervous wrecks.

9. Fake Paul would have done SOMETHING to prove he’s fake by now, which he hasn’t done. BECAUSE HE’S NOT DEAD!

10. The last reason is the main reason I hate this conspiracy: People believe it. Yes, real people actually think Paul died, and someone replaced him.

I don’t get it.

Paul is alive, ok?

Elmore James' got nothing on this baby!

But John said the freaks were right when they said Paul was dead.

The only way to find out the truth is to cut Ringo open, something that is attempted in Help !’ (Tho obviously we cannot and should not be doing that). Everyone knows that the way to count a tree’s age is to count the rings and ringo is called ringo because of the number of rings he wore. All the clues to this are there and if you think this is dopey please google the witch scene from ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’ and no one should need to have that link explained.

It’s obvious that the Beatles is just Ringo moving really fast. 

But for real, this myth is, if I recall correctly, one of the earliest conspiracy theories of the modern age? However, unlike the assasination of John F. Kennedy, which has many of loose ends to cast reasonable doubt, the “Paul is Dead” theory has been debunked in like… less than a year time ever since it hit the mainstream. It makes no sense, it has no logical meaning behind why would someone do something like that, and it’s easily debunked. I’m honestly surprised that the myth is still going on. 

It’s all worth it for the memes, though. Oh, and it was free publicity for “Abbey Road “, I guess. 

We do a little trolling

I don’t know. There’s just something about it that rings true.

”Rings” true.
