Sathya Sai Baba fundamental(ist) confusion about goodness

Posted by robertpriddy on September 15, 2011

“According to Moore, the mistake of thinking that goodness is some natural property of things,
such as their capacity to produce pleasure.” The Cambridge Encyclopedia

Sathya Sai Baba commits this fallacy of confusing ‘is’ and ‘ought’ or facts and values time and again. This is a throwback to the less sophisticated attitude in religiously-dominated society where values are actually treated as facts (for example, thinking that e. ‘Thou shalt not kill is a fact”). Because of this confused doctrine, Sathya Sai Baba is guilty of the fallacy of  anthropomorphism, which is attributing a human personality or character traits to impersonal entities. In his views on nature it runs entirely wild.

Sai Baba applied mental, psychological or spiritual qualities of human being to animals and even objects. (note: trees that provide shade, exemplar crows, peaceable lions, devotional dogs, spiders, ‘weeping saris’ and much more – even Bhoomidev as Mother Earth (‘who’ reacts karmically against human sins with earthquakes, tsunamis, withholding rain, droughts etc.) Sathya Sai Baba’s cheapest aphorism is ‘Nature is the best teacher’. This has the ring of a bad ‘penny proverb and is typical of his deeply flawed imaginings about animals and nature.

Nature as the best teacher – Sai as a bad one  Simplistic ideas about human intelligence and the nature of animals.

All wild animals gentle, but for man’s influence (said Sai Baba) An  inane account of his encounter with wild animals in East Africa by Sathya Sai Baba delivered to an adult audience 22-8-2007. His increasingly senile Divine wisdom poured out. Apparently devotees sat agape while learning that elephants liked bananas and wanted more…  Sai Baba never mentions dinosaurs, but we must assume that – since they were animals too – he would have thought them peaceful and harmonious, since there were no human beings then to ‘pervert’ them!

In his discourse of 6th May 2000, Sathya Sai Baba said.“Why does water scarcity arise? When there is a decline in Sathya (Truth) and Dharma (Righteousness), the level of water in the earth also declines. As compassion and love have diminished in human heart, water has become scarce. This problem is not due divine fury as some people may imagine. It is because of the rise in evil qualities in man. If people strictly adhere to the path of truth and righteousness, there will never be water scarcity.” (Sanathana Sarathi, v.43, June 2000, #6, p.165) Sathya Sai Baba explains water scarcity cause.

 Good and evil – the dual teaching of SSB shows the basis in his teachings of his confused and confusing ‘teaching’ on the true nature of good and evil, neither of which he also contradictorily says really exist!
