Not to mention what is curative about the island (the black woman and her cancer? Locke?)????
My theory is that Locke and Rose were pre-Dharma island babies, not Jack. They leave the island, they get sick; they return to the island, their health is restored. It would explain why Locke's father needed the operation from Locke specifically (and why he was a big game hunter), and why they were estranged.
As for the yacht, I'm sticking with my theory that Whitemore via Libby set Desmond up, and the yacht's hull is magnetized to be attracted to the electromagnetic anomally.
I don't think Jacob's list is the same as the list given to Michael (Jack was on that list). Jacob is probably a higher-up, maybe the eyepatch guy. Jacob is also a biblicial reference (Jacob/Isreal, son of 12, last son's name is Benjamin, etc).
Fuck I'm a loser.
