Head in the sand pie in the sky - whether you put your heads up or down you wind up in the same place, buried in denial of the facts. Some of us "naysayers" do the world a service by informing people who innocently are curious about TM to warn them of getting involved with a bona fide cult.

They could be doing so much better, with their lives, and loved ones, if they would spend less time denigrating, and more time seeking. From what I can see of the three of them, they do very little in real life. Perhaps slinging all the insults is the best they ever feel. Definitely true of that Barry character, who only seems to stand tall, on the backs of others.

I thought it was a really good post, I gave it two stars. Not too shabby, especially as I've got a stinking cold. Maybe double-edged would be a better description than sarcastic. I was serious though, even though I don't believe in it I think it's good that it's being tested again and with so many that it will leave us in no doubt. I can't imagine what the TMO will do when they don't have a leg to stand on regarding the Maharishi Effect. I know they'll just carry on regardless but they should take heed that we'll always be able to point to this and say "what about...".

While having the ME completely disproven might deter some people, my suspicion is that any TM True Believer still gullible enough to still be a TB at this point would just put on their big boy pants and tough their way through it, finding an infinite series of loopholes to show that the prophecy of world peace really DID happen, if you just look at it the right way. Or that it was delayed as part of a larger plan for world peace. Whatever... Yes, you could be right. Hopefully we'll see. Maybe we'll get some more gems to add to the list of reasons why things don't work. Good book that, one of my favourites. Most interesting and I remember feeling sorry for them when the UFO didn't arrive, much as I'll feel sorry for Nabby when Maitreya doesn't. Not that he'll care or even notice...
