Q.

While predicting German defeat in the WC Octopus Paul proved his honesty. Do you think a human being would have dared to do the same thing if he were staying in Germany? Your views?

The great soothsayer octopus Paul was born in Weymouth, a town on the south coast of England his country of birth ) and later moved over to Germany (his ountry of adoption ). Eversince, he was fed his favourite food (as is the case with all Octpuses ), the mussels, plenty of them, by the caring and loving Germans. It is reported that this pampering of Paul has made him so dependent on mussels placed before him in a "platter", because he doesnt know how to hunt for the mussels in the sea. :). Now consider the case of a hguman, seeking asylum in a favoured foreign country, under some pretext, and living off the host country's mercy and sympathy. He will never predict anything against his adopted country's interests, if he knows that this country will be the loser in a game or something like that. He will be intelligent enough to smell an impending deportation to his country of birth which he fled for reasons known to him. The Survival instinct is much more

Super natural phenomena do happen all the time all over the world through human and other media . It is well known that rats jump off the ship when destined to be sunk before others are aware of it . It is reported that US police regularly seek the help of clairvoyants to solve crimes . Here now an octopus is the media . It has again predicted Germany as third and Spain to win the finals . SO BE IT . But a sooth Sayer in Germany if approached would have also predicted it without any worry at all . Nostradamus , being called as a witch was about to be killed for his predictions but from then on he wrote his predictions in such a style neither the place nor the time can be easily found . Still researches are being done on his predictions . So sir i feel a person endowed with God's grace of such super natural powers would say his mind than being afraid of human threats .
