    It is possible, given any solution, to find clues that appear to point to that solution.

    History is littered with people, both well intentioned and bad, who started with a premise and then carefully selected stuff from the bible/koran/whatever as evidence. Symbolically rich texts can be interpreted to say anything.

    So, while I could point out things that I see as being relevant, I'd rather not for a few reasons: (1) they could very well be wrong, (2) many of them are very subtle and would result in most people saying "uhhh, that's not a clue" (maybe they're right!), and (c) if they are right, then they are almost certainly helpful in deciphering clues for other chapters, and I'm sort of in the mood right now to win an eagle. As I peer across my desk, the "eagle spot" in the corner is still missing an eagle. So sad.

    It has been quiet lately. Are people busy thinking about things, Keeping new revelations to themselves now, Too frustrated by the hunt and the "clues", or just plain losing interest? Hopefully not the last as Ron states that he can cancel the hunt if there is not enough interest maintained. For my part, our team is also working on Chapter 5 lists of keys (If we solve chapter five first, it will put this entire 'solving a chapter without Facebook clues' discussion to bed).

    I think people are mostly keeping things to themselves, which is to be expected. The first three winners never really posted here much, if at all, so for every person that posts there are a bunch who are working on this thing in the background.

    I'm feeling good about C4 - I have found a tremendous amount of stuff. It's my goal to win it and explain how it was done using no facebook clues.

    Time will tell whether I'm on the right track, or completely out of my mind. It wouldn't surprise me at all if I had zero keys correct too.

    Just submitted a sequence that fits everything, including a whole set of validation hints. Fingers crossed.
