Sterling Harwood on “Paul Is Dead,” “Moon Hoax,” and Other “Outrageous Conspiracy Theories”

Listen HERE

Philosophy professor Sterling Harwood, another academician who isn’t afraid of controversial topics, discusses his excellent book The Greatest Mystery of the Beatles: Critical Thinking on Paul is Dead & the Skeptical Sixties. Is there really any evidence suggesting that Paul McCartney died  in 1966 and was replaced by a look-alike (of equal or greater talent and able to play left-handed bass while singing Paul-style harmonies?!) The surprising answer is yes, there is actually some interesting prima facie evidence…in fact, a very long list of clues, some of them more interesting than others. So what is the best explanation for the existence of that evidence—as well as the strong counter-evidence that the original Paul is still alive and well?

Professor Harwood’s book also debunks the Bugliosi/Warren Commission version of the JFK assassination, and considers purported evidence that the Apollo moon landings were faked.
