William Bill Aitken’s base attacks on serious critics

Posted by robertpriddy on January 7, 2008

The Sathya Sai apologist William McKay Aitken (Bill Aitken) excelled himself with patronising wisdom in ‘This Week’ when he wrote:
“…no amount of reasoning is going to take you nearer to the meaning of life and understanding of the pre-eminence of love. We are born to find this liberating truth in ourselves. (Finding fault in others is not so urgent!)”.

Let us consider the last part here [on urgency in exposing faults]. It would seem that Aitken wants to put down those who have truly found many faults in Sai Baba. Evidently, he does not think it ‘urgent’ that he finds fault in Sai Baba, even though it is the simplest matter to do so if one is an open-minded researcher. But then – as if in the same breath – Bill Aitken hastens to write plenty about the faults of others who do  with many excellent reasons find fault in Sai Baba. One can view Aitken’s lengthy fault-finding rant here

The self-imposed suppression of facts in self interest

Aitken would seem not to find any fault in Sai Baba or anything around him, which he surely does, judging by comments about scepticism he has made in the past and knowing what any long-term observer finds it impossible to avoid or rationalise away. This lapse is easily explainable… he would soon find he would no longer be able to visit the ashrams (where he no doubt has VIP status, having written his hagiography). No criticism whatever is tolerated by Sai officials, and absolutely not by Sathya Sai Baba himself. So Aitken has to compromise his integrity and toe the line through self-censorship, which is part of the doctrine too and soon becomes an ingrained attitude (i.e. ignore everything about Sai Baba which is not fully affirmative). For him wilfully to remain insulated from the grave facts which have emerged since 2000 is pitiful!

Aitken propagates provable untruths about the detractors of Sathya Sai Baba He calls the detractors of Sathya Sai Baba “a violently vociferous lobby” and emphasises that some paint him as the ‘Anti-Christ’. This is all in Aitken’s fervid and wilfully wild imagination… there is not a violently vociferous lobby, for those who are activists against Sathya Sai Baba represent a very wide range of positions. Those who consider Sai Baba as an ‘Anti-Christ’ are few and wholly peripheral to the main body of the disaffected. Such people are mostly found on disreputable bulletin boards and are given very short shrift by the main websites which present the massed evidence and extensive documentation against Sathya Sai Baba as follows:-;;;;

To demonstrate the lies and massive abuses of faith by a self-proclaimed Creator of the Universe and God above all gods from his own plethora of published discourses and writings is not to “vilify” Sai Baba, as Aitken calls it. He who calls others ‘vilifiers’ should look into himself! It is natural for those – like myself – who have been deceived so thoroughly by such cunning deceits and claims which proved empty and void due to the very actions of Sathya Sai Baba, to write about all these negative facts and display their hypocrisy and the criminal involvements alleged by so many people. The enormity of Sathya Sai Baba’s abuse of faith deserves the soundest and most thorough of refutations, and he has indeed brought this down upon himself.
