Could It Be…?
Check out Newsweek, June 8th, 2009 edition. Talk show hostess Oprah is on the cover; article about her on page 54. The slant? Crazy talk with Opie, taking her to task for promoting wacky cures. (Online version here.)
For example, 62-year-old actress Suzanne Somers was on the Oprah show one time, talking up estrogen products: cream on her arms, a shot into her vagina. She also swallows a lot of other stuff, like 60 vitamins and other preparations daily.
Why? To stay healthy and live long. The goal: to see her 110th birthday.
So let’s say that Suzanne does live to see one century plus a decade. That would really p.o. the skeptics. But if she makes that goal, what could be the explanation? Among the possibilities:
1.] She was born with good genes, had access to good traditional health care, and all the extra “wacky” stuff didn’t make that much difference.
2.] Her genes were average but the “wacky” additions were very beneficial.
3. ] Good genes, health care and the wackiness worked together to allow her to live to be 110.
But could there be another explanation?
How about a transdimensional prankster who bestows a bit of magic that trumps science? The Chaos Purple Elephant who likes to thumb the collective nose of skeptics. Invisible, intangible, he’s beyond the reach of science. Beyond disproof.
Hey, just as sensible as a syringe of estrogen injected into a vagina.
