Sathya Sai Baba vs. Richard Dawkins

Posted by robertpriddy on August 25, 2008

Sathya Sai Baba has constantly denigrated reason, science, logic and scholarship in favour of faith, especially faith in himself. However, he has proved that he cannot be relied on at all in any way. With his deeply flawed logic and demonstrated ignorance of scientific fact and logical thought, he cannot face up to any rational discussion and to avoid it happening he has surrounded himself with servitors who cast out anyone who raises the slighest question to doubt or criticise him. He and his so-called ‘teachings’ are among the many obvious targets for the general criticism by world-famous Professor Richard Dawkins, some of whose words I quote here:-

There are two ways of looking at the world – through faith and superstition or through the rigours of logic, observation and evidence – in other words, through reason. Reason and a respect for evidence are precious commodities, the source of human progress and our safeguard against fundamentalists and those who profit from obscuring the truth. Yet, today, society appears to be retreating from reason.

Apparently harmless but utterly irrational belief systems from astrology to New Age mysticism, clairvoyance to alternative health remedies are booming. Richard Dawkins confronts what he sees as an epidemic of irrational, superstitious thinking…

He explains the dangers the pick and mix of knowledge and nonsense poses in the internet age, and passionately re-states the case for reason and science. See
