True, there is that. But why take a chance? The gal said that they were extremely selective about who was chosen to receive the surgeries.

Makes me wonder what the criteria for being chosen was exactly.  ;)
I show affection for my pets by holding them against me and whispering, "I love you" repeatedly as they struggle to break free.

It sounds like wigglytuff really wants to believe and is looking for
someone here to validate it for him.

Or has a hard time believing someone would *gasp* LIE!

Wiggly - I haven't watched the video. Having seen this kind of crap debunked by the Amazing Randi (amongst others) is enough for me. If it's supernatural, it doesn't exist except in the minds of those who push it on people.

E.
well its just that this story with this woman sounds so messed up to me...and combined with other people who claim they saw this surgeon do stuff well, it kinda bothered me, and i just wanted to talk about it :)

Wiggly--a good place for you to go for more discussion would be the Skeptic Society Forum.  They have whole sections devoted to Healthcare AND Scams both of which would be a great place for more debunking.  Hey, I'm not saying the folks here on WWGHA aren't good for this--they are--but the Skeptics Forum is designed to debunk this kind of ridiculous crap.  And, unfortunately, there is a lot of ridiculous crap out there designed to get money from desperate sick people.

It's true, though, because people are making up more evidence. It's just not particularly strong evidence, or even true evidence. If someone purgers in court, it's still evidence, until someone finds out that it was untrue evidence.
