The Disaster of the ‘Miraculous’
Some Devotees Silent On Miracle Topic
Devotee Intelligentsia Can Fear
India A Fast Breeder of Rationalists
Silence Motivated by Spiritual
‘Miracles’ Are More Than Sai Baba’s
Endemic Devotee Exitability
"Sai Baba makes a belated pretence
at downplaying his so-called miracles, yet boasts of them
constantly and performs these apparent feats often - although
falling back on legerdemain. His very denial of the importance
of the miraculous is lost in his behavioural performances, just
as his very denial of sex is lost in his having of it with boys
and young men, and his emphasis on not collecting funds by his
Organization is lost in ‘backdoor’ methods of fundraising".
"In passing, I would note that in
India (where I lived for several years) for a respectable Indian
intellectual to hold that supraphenomena can exist is nowhere so
difficult as in western countries. This fact makes India a fertile
ground for rationalists. In my years there, I was struck by how
aware were wide cross-sections of educated India of rationalists
such as (late) A.T. Kovoor, (late) Professor H.Narasimhaiah, Basava
Premanand, Professor Narendra Nayak, Prabir Ghosh, and others. This
was no sleeping issue".
