"Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?" — Epicurus
It would be interesting to see if these cases involving spontaneous combustion were diabetics where ketones could be in a higher concentration. Acetone is extremely flammable, has low flashpoint and can explode at at relatively low concentrations. So, this theory seems plausible.
All they did is identify one possible material involved in SHC, not even the method that made it happen as they had to set fire to it first!
I agree with you on that .
I have one theory for this because I really thought at the time I might be burnt to toast!
Who knows there may be many triggers if the person's make up is is like this researcher said ?
I experienced something that might be what is called ball lightning in 1981. I don't know , but I was amazed whatever it was. I just moved to the country and there was a lightning thunder then a small storm which ended up with a beautiful sunset and rainbow that evening. I walked in the door from work and left the screen open since the air was so fresh from the rain. I was surprised when I saw a ball of light come floating and stopped in the living room for about 40 seconds or so. It was white like a florescent light and a little bigger than a basketball. I assume it came through the door but I didn't see where it came from since I was too busy just coming home to notice. It moved toward the large bay window but it popped as it went to a lamp I just turned on ! It flashed like an old time big flash bulb even the same kind of sound but sort of like a small clap of thunder. It smelled like an electrical fire after but there was no fire. The lamp shade smelled and had residue on it because there was some smoke when it happened. When it happened, it was just raining and part of the sky seemed to have a strange yellow hue but it was just before the big lightning and downpour part of the storm. It was part of the storm obviously.
I always wondered if ball lightning is an answer to the mystery of unexplained spontaneous combustion after that.
