Oops! Apparently Sai Baba DID appear on the moon?

Posted by robertpriddy on October 24, 2007

While one fanatical apologist who was nowhere near India at the time claims that Sai Baba never even said he would appear on the moon, others claim that he actually did! Funny, though, how 20,000 people or so (some report 14,000, but no one really counts these crowds) rushed to the airport if no one had said a thing about a moon miracle? There’s something wrong somewhere.

Vivek Kumar wrote on his blog:-

“Yes it happened last night—Sri Sathya Sai Baba did appear in moon last night, and my friends have reported to have seen Him at around 11:00 PM (IST). Yes dear friends, after the earlier declaration that he would show his Vishav Virat Roop (Cosmic Form) to the crowd at the Puttaparthi Airport, it has been done last night. Many people were agog with the words that “Sai Baba’s Moon Miracle Failed”. However, it is been done now and we can revel the mystery of this Avatar.”

And there were 3 comments too!

1) vikiiiiiiii said… Even my parents and friends told that they saw saibaba in moon…every one was wonder stuck
2) Anonymous said… Swami has appeared in the moon tonight as well around the same time as Monday night. Amazing.
3) Rajavelu said… Yes we too have seen this in Abudhabi too.

It’s interesting how the Sathya Sai Organisation, Radio Sai and all the official and semi-official Sai websites avoid the issues with the veritable “silence of the grave”. Wonder why? Not a word to confirm or deny anything! The failed moon miracle issue is very prominently reported in Indian press reports and on many websites and blogs.

This ‘personal religious experience’ of miracles is not confined to Sai Baba followers, however, for Mohammed is said to prevailed on God have ‘split’ the moon into two halves so as to cause some people to believe!
See, for example, NASA Photos Prove Splitting of the Moon, Prophet Mohammad’s (PBUH) Miracle

How can these ‘miracles’ occur, but only for a handful of people, while astronomers around the world see absolutely zilch? (I can almost ‘hear’ some devotees thinking “Astronomers and star-gazers are unworthy people who are therefore not granted this blessed darshan”. But then again there were the 200,000 devotees at the airport who did not get it either).

Sam Harris excerpt

Richard Dawkins has some pertinent comments on how ‘personal religious experiences’ come about which the ‘blind believer’ should learn:-

“The human brain runs first-class simulation software. Our eyes don’t present to our brains a faithful photograph of what is out there, or an accurate movie of what is going on through time. Our brains construct a continuously updated model” and….
“Constructing models is something the human brain is very good at. When we are asleep it is called dreaming; when we are awake we call it imagination or, when it is exceptionally vivid, hallucination. As Chapter 10 will show, children who have ‘imaginary friends’ sometimes see them clearly, exactly as if they were real. If we are gullible, we don’t recognize hallucin­ation or lucid dreaming for what it is and we claim to have seen or heard a ghost; or an angel; or God; or – especially if we happen to be young, female and Catholic – the Virgin Mary. Such visions and manifestations are certainly not good grounds for believing that ghosts or angels, gods or virgins, are actually there.On the face of it mass visions, such as the report that seventy thousand pilgrims at Fatima in Portugal in 1917 saw the sun tear itself from the heavens and come crashing down upon the multitude’, are harder to write off. It is not easy to explain how seventy thousand people could share the same hallucination. But it is even harder to accept that it really happened without the rest of the world, outside Fatima, seeing it too – and not just seeing it, but feeling it as the catastrophic destruction of the solar system, including acceleration forces sufficient to hurl everybody into space.” From ‘The God Delusion’ by Richard Dawkins, p. 115.
This moon madness episode – incredibly bungled deception propaganda – is the latest in a lifetime of deceits by Sathya Sai Baba, as can be studied at leisure here.
