Dangerous Minds focused on a conspiracy website called The Beatles (as they were presented to us) Never Existed:

So yeah, The Beatles were a series of individuals imitating personas. It’s theorized that this is because four lone human beings couldn’t possibly produce the work of such a prolific band, much less meet all their social/media obligations. The blog concedes an uncanny resemblance between various Beatle bodies, but suggests that clones might have been used to keep up the charade (Clones! of course! Why didn’t I think of that?). Clones, the site argues, would only be “95-99%” identical to their source body, which accounts for the slight discrepancies in photographs.

I couldn't find a conspiracy thread that pertained to all four (as opposed to Paul being dead), so I figured I'd start one.

Have humans been cloned?

Despite several highly publicized claims, human cloning still appears to be fiction. There currently is no solid scientific evidence that anyone has cloned human embryos.

In 1998, scientists in South Korea claimed to have successfully cloned a human embryo, but said the experiment was interrupted very early when the clone was just a group of four cells. In 2002, Clonaid, part of a religious group that believes humans were created by extraterrestrials, held a news conference to announce the birth of what it claimed to be the first cloned human, a girl named Eve. However, despite repeated requests by the research community and the news media, Clonaid never provided any evidence to confirm the existence of this clone or the other 12 human clones it purportedly created.

In 2004, a group led by Woo-Suk Hwang of Seoul National University in South Korea published a paper in the journal Science in which it claimed to have created a cloned human embryo in a test tube. However, an independent scientific committee later found no proof to support the claim and, in January 2006, Science announced that Hwang's paper had been retracted.

From a technical perspective, cloning humans and other primates is more difficult than in other mammals. One reason is that two proteins essential to cell division, known as spindle proteins, are located very close to the chromosomes in primate eggs. Consequently, removal of the egg's nucleus to make room for the donor nucleus also removes the spindle proteins, interfering with cell division. In other mammals, such as cats, rabbits and mice, the two spindle proteins are spread throughout the egg. So, removal of the egg's nucleus does not result in loss of spindle proteins. In addition, some dyes and the ultraviolet light used to remove the egg's nucleus can damage the primate cell and prevent it from growing.

Is this another instance of them being ahead of their time?

I like this conspiracy theory - like many of them it is more unbelievable than the actual events.

I like #2 because it almost sounds like The Beatles were like Menudo - replacing members as soon as they reached a certain age.

If anyone is interested, the link in the above post probably goes to this website. Project Walrus and the Murder of John Lennon

The mods didn't think the page had anything to with "Did Yoko love John?" so we moved the post out of that thread to this one.

Well, in a way they were. The ultimate Boyband in my opinion. Not just that, though.

I skimmed it looking for any references to Yoko since it was originally posted in the Did Yoko love John? thread. The little I read convinced me it belonged here.

Any amount of time spent learning about their early days will clearly illustrate a rock band with an attitude.

Not a boy band.

Yes, the original Beatles created a bunch of different accounts are are perpetuating mad stories about themselves (and their fake counterparts)...paul-mccartneya-hard-days-night-george-10

I kind of agree with @Oudis because they cleaned up and became somewhat under control. I will not deny that they are different from all of the other boy bands, thanks to that attitude, which is why they are the Ultimate Boy Band.

Why can't they be both a rock band and a boy band.

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr
