Dr. Michael Nobel’s failed ‘new’ Nobel Prize

Posted by robertpriddy on December 15, 2011

In 2007 Dr Michael Nobel (born as Michael Oleinikoff), a great grand-nephew of Alfred Nobel, attempted to start a prize – the so-called ‘Dr. Michael Nobel Award’. Interesting that his name was changed to emphasize his distant relationship to the world-famous Alfred Nobel, a name on which Dr. Michael has repeatedly tried to capitalize since then – and most recently in a published attack on the Norwegian Peace Prize Committee. He evidently think his blood line makes him a person of considerable consequence and that his name puts him in a superior position to criticize, as well as having an axe to grind due to his removal from leadership of the Swedish Nobel Family Society, “mainly because of his unauthorized activities and involvement  in the name of the Nobel Family Society”. He is no longer even a member of that Family Society.

Michael Nobel is a great grand-nephew of Alfred Nobel, who would most likely not have felt too pleased about his distant descendant, who has been repudiated by the Nobel authorities. He is behind the setting up of one of Sathya Sai Baba’s many hugely expensive and major Sai propaganda efforts Sai Global Harmony via WorldSpace International Satellite Radio Service of which he is a director. Sai Radio broadcasts 24/7 to many countries. Contrary to long-uncorrected statements (in Wikipedia and in various promotions) by Sai Baba activists, Dr. M. Nobel is NOT the son of the Nobel Peace founder Alfed Nobel – who died in 1896!
Michael Nobel extended his international satellite broadcasting corporation to send Sathya Sai Baba propaganda across the air-waves of the world. Sai Radio broadcasts 24/7 to many countries. 

Referring to his ‘achievements’ in obtaining an (almost unused)  airport funded by the poor Indian taxpayer (from the Minister responsible, his devotee, Mr. Kaw), and a donated hospital, Sathya Sai Baba said concerning the Nobel Prize personnel and process:- “Aerodrome has come. Super Speciality Hospital has come. These things are not even in big towns. More, more, more, more will come. To show this to the whole world, it (Sai Global Harmony Channel, a satellite digital radio channel set up to broadcast Swami’s discourses, bhajans, etc.) begins within this month. To bring about these changes, numerous people will be involved. I am also telling you a few names.”

…things like these are seen, all sorts are coming here. No one has invited them at all. No one is giving them (a special) welcome. Yet they themselves are coming. What is the reason? That Chaitanya Jyothi (meaning Swami Himself) is here and It (He) is pulling them!” (Applause) [From Premsai translation of Discourse in 2001. The bracketed words are editorial clarifications made by the Premsai students]

See also Sathya Sai Baba’s hunger for international recognition – and the Nobel Peace Prize. Claiming to have incarnated to save humanity, Sai Baba claimed that he has instituted world peace, a fact of which Dr. Michael Nobel cannot be unaware. Considering his praise for Sai Baba and his works, would it be strange that he would like to have seen him so honoured, since he attacks the ‘politicians’ who are elected to award it for often giving it to the wrong people.

Contrary to long-uncorrected statements (in Wikipedia and in various promotions) by Sai Baba activists, Dr. M. Nobel is NOT the son of the Nobel Peace founder Alfred Nobel – who died in 1896! Dr. T. Nobel was badly misrepresented by Sai Baba and also by his official webmaster, Dr. G. Venkataraman, head of Radio Sai (which M.N. himself funded), to whom he wrote a request for correcting a serious error (see below). The supercilious Venkataraman has to this date not heeded the request!

Michael Nobel praises Sathya Sai Baba but is badly misrepresented

Posted by robertpriddy on October 10, 2009

Dr. Michael Nobel is the great grand nephew of Alfred Nobel who founded the Nobel Prize. Dr. Nobel is also the Chairman of THE APPEAL OF NOBEL PEACE LAUREATES FOUNDATION. Below are extracts from a TV interview he gave to an Italian producer.

The above is stated on the web page However, Dr. G. Venkataraman chose NOT to heed the plea which the writer of a comment (Umberto Frascati) makes – on behalf of Dr. Michael Nobel – to remove this false statement! See here:-

To G.V. Venkataramam from Umberto Frascati Milano Italy SAI RAM.. please read the message from Dr, Michael Nobel requesting the correction as in his text…
I am urgently requires your help as you have an important position in the Sai Baba movement. Looking at the following address: you see I am listed as the Chairman of THE APPEAL OF NOBEL PEACE LAUREATES FOUNDATION. This is a complete inaccuracy and causes me a lot of ill will. Please do me a great favour and have the webmaster of the Sai Baba organization remove this as soon as practically possible. If necessary (which I do not believe) he can replace it with “chairman of the Nobel Charitable Trust”.Thank you in advance for your valuable help in this matter and please let me know the outcome of your contact with him or her.Best personal regards
Michael Nobel

Comment: The “valuable help” was not forthcoming and the advance thanks were misplaced.

Not only that, but Dr. Michael Nobel was presented by Sathya Sai Baba – the self-appointed “omniscient” God as the man who awards the Nobel Peace prize was visiting him! See here: Sathya Sai Baba’s hunger for international recognition!!

SAI-SinghThis year again there is no mention of Sathya Sai Baba as one of the candidates, but we may rest assured that the Prime Minister of India – Manmohan Singh, who is a longer-term foot-worshipping Sai devotee, ensured that his name was submitted as in past years by former P.M. Vajpayee.

Sathya Sai Baba followers in education and science

Posted by robertpriddy on January 19, 2009

Much is made of Sathya Sai Baba followers who are said to be ‘educationalists’ and  ‘scientists’, and not a few of them – especially the Indians, who are the clear majority in these categories, always add a string of letters after their names. In Sai Baba literature and lectures they are often called ‘prominent’ , but their prominence is invariably limited to Sai Baba circles and not the world scene, where none have high profiles – if any at all.  In short, no world-class or genuinely famous scientists nor any major figure in the humanities or even literature have declared their faith in Sathya Sai Baba. Former science workers who still support him are more likely to adhere to the ideological misconceptions Sathya Sai Baba promotes as ‘Saience’ (to replace ‘science’)  rather than world scientific consensus (such as his main propagandist today, the former physicist G. Venkataraman (see links at foot of page).

Why is there a total absence of scientific or pedagogic discussion – let alone peer reviews – at anything like a professional level in any of the publications by these known followers of Sathya Sai Baba? Why are no references ever made to international educational bodies’ findings or official governmental reports, academic studies, or the work of any known and respected professional pedagogues and educationalists worldwide? Further, why are there virtually no names of scientists or educationalists genuinely well-known and regarded as authorities in their professions outside the circle of Sai Baba devotees? The answer, Sathya Sai Baba is the infallible source of all knowledge and wisdom for all followers and no other information is needed! But his is highly fallible and repeatedly demonstrates crass ignorance of science, history an even religions.

Not one head of any independent University in the world has endorsed Sathya Sai Baba educational ideals or programmes, and – as is well known – a branch of UNESCO withdrew from a planned educational conference under the auspices of Sathya Sai Baba at Puttaparthi once they had investigated what this involved. (See UNESCO’s warning on Sathya Sai Baba here)

Not one Nobel laureate is known to be a follower, as far as can be discovered. Incidentally, Sathya Sai Baba has been forwarded as a candidate for the Nobel Peace prize by the Indian Government, obviously without result, of course. He made clear his  hopes that he would receive it from Dr. Michael Nobel, a grandson of Alfred Nobel, but a person who the Nobel Committee has denounced. See Sathya Sai Baba’s hunger for international recognition

One name formerly brandished by Sai followers was Dr. Bhagavantam, because he was a developer of the Indian atomic bomb, though he is not a noted discoverer in world science. However, even Dr. Bhagavantham  left Sathya Sai Baba after two decades of being one of the guru’s right-hand men. The reasons for his departure have been obfuscated by present followers, but he became critical and went of his own accord years before his death, never to return.

Sathya Sai Baba’s hunger for international recognition

Posted by robertpriddy on November 20, 2008

Dr. Michael Nobel - black sheep of Nobel Prize

Dr. Michael Nobel - black sheep of Nobel Prize

Among various attempts by Sathya Sai Baba, his organization etc. to get him international recognition and awards, are two most embarassing incidents, embarrassing for a person who claims to be the Omnipotent Creator of the Universe and MUCH MORE TOO! These incidents were:-

1) Sai Baba’ own announcement that the man who awards the Nobel Peace prize was visiting him! (See extensive coverage of this below here)
2) The failed attempt to sneak a Duke of Edinburgh Award for Sathya Sai Baba – much publicised by his chief propagandist Dr. G. Venkataraman see here.

Sai Baba used a known imposter to pretend he’d get a Nobel Peace Prize!
Sathya Sai Baba ill-concealed desire to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize was backed by Prime Minister Vajpayee’s Indian Government!  The hope for this was strongly hinted at by the Sai Baba himself, saying: in his 18 November 2001 Discourse “They are giving the Nobel Prize to many people. The man who gives the Nobel Prize is coming here on the 22nd November. The ones who will show this to the whole world, TV people, are all coming here on the 22nd.” How could Sanathana Sarathi publish such embarassing ignorance? Doubtless because the editors do not yet realise to what extent Sathya Sai Baba has – due to his own words and actions – become notorious in wider world, not famous.

Sathya Sai official webpage promotion of imposter Michael Nobel

The Times of India reported (24-11-2001) making massive factual errors: “Dr Michael Nobel, Head of the Nobel Institution and Director, Worldspace, told the Times of India, the things that Baba has done is simply amazing and this channel will spread his message to the world. He said there would be an explosion of his teachings. I am confident it will have a lasting impact. Dr Nobel said the channel now offers the reach to take his message to billions in the world.”

The imposter “Dr. Michael Nobel”

Michael Nobel is neither the son nor the grandson of Alfred Nobel but is his great grandnephew. He is not the Head of the Nobel Institution – was actually an executive of a foreign company contracted by the Sathya Sai Organization to set up the ‘Sai Global Harmony’ satellite radio station! In short – he was in the pay of Sai Baba. More than that, he has been rejected as an imposter by the genuine Swedish Nobel Foundation (see Wikipedia) quote: “Michael Nobel was born as Michael Oleinikoff. Michael’s father Sven Oleinikoff changed to his mother’s maiden name Nobel, and subsequently, so did Michael. Michael has (as of June 2008) not abide by the advice of the Nobel foundation and the Nobel family head, but continues his efforts to establish a new prize in his own (taken) name. Furthermore, on the 10th of October, 2008, Michael Nobel gave a talk, where transcripts of his speech falsely attributes him to be representing the “Nobel Peace Foundation”.

But despite this billions of the world population remain in blissful ignorance of Sathya Sai Baba and his message today, as can be seen by the virtual total lack of coverage in current serious – or even popular – media [outside India, where Sai devotees actually rule the country]. Dr. Michael Nobel is involved with the administration of an appeal body supported by some Nobel Peace Prize Laureates. to collect funds for peace purposes. This is in no way connected to any Nobel Prize-giving Committee. Dr. Michael Nobel and the organization he promotes received a hard rap over the knuckles as follows: “…the organizers received a disturbing fax from The Nobel Foundation in Sweden. It advised them that Mr. Nobel had been voted out as head of the Nobel Family Society at a meeting in August of 2006 “mainly because of his unauthorized activities and involvements in the name of the Nobel Family Society.” And it threatened legal action against those involved in creating “The Dr. Michael Nobel Award”, as Mr. Nobel had indicated it was to be named.” (The Nobel Prize that Wasn’t – New York Times)

No ‘man gives the Nobel Prize’ – only the Norwegian Nobel committee does
The Nobel Peace Prize award is the sole preserve of the Norwegian Government. Famously, the cosmopolitan Alfred Nobel would not trust his countrymen (the Swedish authorities) with such a task and ensured that a Peace Prize Committee was to be elected by the Norwegian Government, their decision being final. Norwegian professors of philosophy are the only persons allowed to forward a candidate (apart from national States). The Norwegian Committee have been informed privately about the dark sides of Sathya Sai Baba and his shady involvements, and the 1 hour Danish documentary ‘Seduced’ about Sathya Sai Baba’s fraudulence and the sex abuse allegations was shown three times on prime time on Norwegian National Television (NRK).

The moral standing of anyone who may receive the Peace Prize must be beyond suspicion and crispy clean to a degree which Sathya Sai Baba is most certainly not (involved in murders and their cover-up, widely accused of sexual abuse of young men and minors. Further, how could the Norwegian Nobel Committee award it to anyone who supports those of the Indian Government who vastly increase militarism in their arms race with Pakistan and China and are developing their nuclear arsenal? Sathya Sai Baba’s patronage during 20 years in his ashram of the ‘father’ of India’s atomic bomb (Dr. Bhagavantam, deceased) and his warm personal and public support with the designer of the latest nuclear delivery missiles are disqualifying facts in themselves.
