"I'll Be Back."

Dear readers and friends,

As you may already know, this blog has not been updated with any new articles in several months. The main reason for this is that I am now at a sensitive stage in my personal life that requires more time and commitment than I can presently afford to update this site. I would like to thank those who have written to me in support and encouragement of my efforts to expose Sathya Sai Baba and his massive deceptions, and also to enquire about my whereabouts. I am still largely unavailable via email and such although comments to postings will continue to be published.

I also need to consider the fact that spending a a significant amount of time on Sai Baba topics tends to overtake other hobbies and interests of mine, so it is beneficial every once in a while to take a well-earned break. Please feel free to read and review the archives; there is much to read, discover and expand upon, even I look to them occasionally to gain inspiration for a new topic. You may also like to look over a new blog run by Barry Pittard that is updated regularly with fantastic articles:

I will certainly return to this blog when I have gathered up even more energy and resources that are needed for this task, and to present a whole range of hard-hitting exposés that will continue to display Sathya Sai Baba to the world as an utterly hopeless conman, cheat, fraud, liar and deceiver.

You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet! ;-)

Sai Baba Slammed By Newsweek

Although I just said I'm too busy for these matters, I found this gem that is too good to pass up. Enjoy!

Samuel H. Sandweiss, M.D. published his first book about his experiences with Sathya Sai Baba, entitled: 'Sai Baba: The Holy Man and the Psychiatrist'. It has since remained a favourite in Sai literature and a staple product in the Baba's own ashram bookshop. Apart from a graphic description of the Baba's fraudulent miracles personally witnessed and rationalised by Sandweiss, I noticed an observation near the end of the book about how Sandweiss spotted a photo of Sai Baba in Newsweek magazine. Well actually, it was a photo of a yogi, and a picture of Sai Baba just happened to be in the corner of that yogi-picture. Sandweiss chuckled to himself as he mused over that extent of the Baba's media exposure to the West, and how he believed it was all in the Baba's hands.

That was in 1976.

It took until April 2007 for Sai Baba to earn a mention in Newsweek, and which is still generally a passing mention and not a public and positive article about him. Rather, a recent article entitled 'The God Debate' features a discussion between atheist Sam Harris and Christian pastor Rick Warren. You can guess what they argued about - the existence of God. Quite a profound subject for some people where you wouldn't normally expect someone like Sai Baba to get a look-in. But there he is, mentioned right there smack-dab in the middle of the debate, in a key point by Harris about the authenticity of Jesus Christ's miracles:

Harris: Now, there are many testimonials about miracles, every bit as amazing as the miracles of Jesus, in other literature of the world's religions. Even contemporary miracles. There are millions of people who believe that Sathya Sai Baba, the south Indian guru, was born of a virgin, has raised the dead and materializes objects. I mean, you can watch some of his miracles on YouTube. Prepare to be underwhelmed. He's a stage magician. As a Christian, you can say Sathya Sai Baba's miracle stories are not interesting, let's not pay attention to them, but if you set them within the prescientific religious milieu of the first-century Roman Empire, suddenly miracle stories become especially compelling.

Oh dear. Yet another major media source lambasts Sai Baba's extremely poor and pathetic magic show as an excercise in futility and showbusiness. And this time the humiliation is greater as it didn't even require a dedicated article to make the point. What is only necessary to observe is how Sai Baba's "miracles" are now openly derided and mocked as uninteresting and stage-managed, things we have been saying all along. It's about time the world was informed about the Baba's cheap parlour tricks through responsible news media like Newsweek inasmuch as serious allegations of child sexual abuse perpetrated by him are now being documented for posterity in college textbooks.

Isn't it time that the old goat takes the hint and buzzes off? He can ride off into the sunset on his wheelchair, incoherently muttering some inchoate and senescent ramblings before looking back, displaying two fingers to the camera before breaking into maniacal giggles.
