Agreed.

But my point here was that there needs to be a theory that synthesizes available evidence. The idea that Emilie never existed, and is just her "sister" at a different stage of development, seems to explain a few things.

It explains why she seems to appear in the photo with Obama, and is identified as her "sister." It's probably verifiable that the girl with Obama is the "middle" sister, because the "middle" sister, unlike Emilie, is a real person(I mean, under this theory).

It explains why immediately family members don't produce tears or have runny noses or swollen eyes. There was never anything to cry about.
