Although this could imply the existence of other accelerated healing Islands it also could simply imply solely The Island and the The Island alone (i.e. "this place") in comparison to the rest of the islands/landmasses in the world.

I guess I'm just waiting to see how Sayids arm is.  Patchy shot him the same day (or one earlier at most) he got shoved into the bug zapper.  So if Patchy is okay, and Naomi should be okay in a day +1/2 , then Sayid ought to be running around winning every dang arm wrestling contest on the island.

semantics.....life is semantics.  you guys are being anti-semantites.

mikail first states that the wound will heal in a day.

when the group expresses some disbelief, he corrects...on this island, a day and a half.

now, this dialogue was the sum basis of this thread.

mikail, who is obviously familar with the islands and their healing properties, would only need to make such a correction if the individual islands had different healing abilities.  

if one believes that mikail was comparing this island against the rest of the world, then mikail is VERY wrong.  chest tubes don't come out in a day.

so stop being anti-semantites.  what he said, as with the rest of his dialogue, was very precise.

the issues brought up are what causes the differential healing, why is mikail alive, can you move dead people to the source and they come back to life, and is this where the others are heading?
