Is Anti-TM a New Religion? Well, if we consider religion to be a pointer to something it no longer contains, Isn't that a bit self-confirming? Who - apart from you - ever used that as a description of religion? then the answer is "yes". Just as those who go to church regularly because it strengthens their beliefs, so do these naysayers regularly repeat themselves, feeling "safer" inside the boundaries of their "important discoveries". Taking on something like the obvious corruption within the TMO by posturing on forums is another way of saying, "I don't have a life", writ large. So, depending on the degree of obsession, I would say that "Anti-TM" has become a de-facto religion for some. If I was interested in being "safe" I wouldn't come here and raise the issues would I? I'm actually interested in debate and trying to work out how things work (or not) and why people continue to believe them when it's obvious they don't. Your "shoot the messenger" posts are an interesting example of defensive tactics, You disagree with me so obviously you don't have a life. Step outside yourself and see how reasonable a statement that is. I tend to be wary of those who are either always extolling spiritual and religious experience, or always knocking it. Both are somewhat unbalanced, as I am sure their daily lives indicate. Why are you sure? I think you're projecting how you'd like people to be but you seem rather religious to me btu I know I'll hear that old lecture about how TM is superior, I was never convinced but give it a go and I'll try a counter argument. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony2k5@...> wrote : Is Anti-TM a New Religion? Ollie, Interesting observation you are making here about the Anti-TM’ers. Salyavin’s consistent content as criticism here is honed and well stated within the Yahoo-groups guidelines except for the default to the ad hominem, the interesting thing in general is how the anti-TM’ers have come in to cohort as what seems like the a non-theistic religion of anti-TM, The Religious Cohort of Anti-TM,, Federal Court opinion on what makes a religion.. ..“Indica” of religion: 'Ultimate ideas', 'Comprehensive', 'Structure'.

These people have become bitterly disappointed at their experiences regarding TM, and so, "attempt to spread the truth about TM and the org behind it" and "save" others. There is not a nickel's worth of space between that expression and the Christian fundamentalists - same psychological mistake; transference. They cannot accept that they didn't get it, and so turn on those who are experiencing a benefit, blind to the fact that any issue is with themselves, and not the TM or TMO, or practitioners of TM. This is in no way a defense of the TM Org, which has a lot of issues. But there are ways of tackling a problem productively, and there is empty complaining. As you say, we are all adults, and nobody appreciates a bunch of blowhards trumpeting the same hollow message, that they know the real truth about TM and the TMO and are here to enlighten the rest of us. What rubbish. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <steve.sundur@...> wrote : Strange, ain't it. Someone, in this case, Salyavin, feeling they need to save someone from themselves. As if there is not abundant information to peruse with regard to the TM movement such that Salyavin feels the impassioned need to take on the role. What becomes a little weird is that there is no difference from this attitude and the fundamentalist attitude that "they" (the fundamentalist) knows what's best for another, and therefore makes it a mission to convert "the other". And then, you must ask, where does it end.

But can they decide? When you're embroiled in a cult you can really start to believe what they tell you as I'm sure you're aware. Obviously it's up to people to become scientifically aware and think their way out of the stupidity before it bankrupts them or they end up moving to a town where this sort of excuse for thinking is taken so much for granted that it becomes a given rather than the utterly astonishing load of pseudo-scientific nonsense that it actually is. Grown ups can believe anything they like, but if people you know are habitually throwing their money into a hole in the ground - or in this case real estate in Florida - when they think they are creating some sort of peace creating group of Indian chanters the we owe it to them to darw it to their attention or we aren't very good friends. If you knew someone who was being scammed by a devious pension plan wouldn't you tell them if you knew? Yet the TMO gets many millions from selling prayers and all the while setting up a pseudo-scientific justification in the shape of Marshy's crap lectures about the unified field and continuing with John Hagelin's equally crap videos about string theory. It's a deliberate attempt to mis-sell something. The funny thing is they claim to be interested in science and yet they never put any of the more dubious products on the TM price list under any sort of serious scrutiny. Now, this discussion about Nader and how he could possibly have so much money (how much does he have? ) seems like many are jumping to conclusions about his guilt with regard to the Movement handing over millions of dollars to him for some reason. Why would they do this? Is he worth that much to them? I don't know Nader from a hole in the ground other than, I believe, he possesses a gold outfit complete with crown in his closet. I suggest people get some hard facts before proclaiming his guilt from the rooftops. BTW, where did you get your information? Judy seems to think that is important and you didn't answer that question in your response here. Judy has consistently demonstrated that she is an idiot to the extent that I never read her posts. She knows as well as I do where all this information about King Tony comes from. Is there another explanation for the wealth of the Nader family other than the TMO setting him up as some sort of world leader in waiting? If there is I haven't seen it, as he's a public figure appointed by Marshy to be the hereditary ruler of his domain I think we are owed an explanation. But I don't trust the TMO about money for the reasons I have stated.

Soliciting donations for it's "world plan for world peace, bringing enlightenment and prosperity to all nations" and then spending it all on real estate. They have big plans you see, the idea has always a world wide network of palaces and embassies for the "rajas", but no one would pay for that directly so they get you with the old "pundit program" scam, it still seems to work, get a maniac like John Hagelin to make it all sound scientific with a video about string theory, and everyone will think it's valid in some sort of demonstrable way, Before you know it the millions are rolling in from the hopeful flock who have been brainwashed for decades with crap about vedas and physics and now vedas and physiology. I do remember them saying that they'd give refunds in future if the "peace creating" pundit groups didn't happen. Well they didn't happen, not even slightly. This recent layout of funds on big houses for the bigwigs gives the lie to that. It should be obvious that not even they believe all that "coherence creating" bullshit, the question is: What are TMers going to do about it? I'm sure you all received the letter I did recently, about doubling your monthly donation for the yagya programme? Bet you didn't think it was going on flying lessons for the King, expensive jeweller for his wife, or expensive - and non TM - schools for their kids.

I would guess his family has money, especially if he's a doctor and hung out with Maharishi a lot. I doubt he has had to spend much time in an emergency room or maintain a practice fixing up people to pay off student loans. It is very apparent that the guy has money, and it makes sense to me. Why wouldn't a highly educated medical man have made a decent amount of money and has anyone (imagine!) considered that perhaps his wife has a good job? Or maybe there is family money as well. As for some of these other people who became rajas and ranis, I've heard at least one and maybe more had to virtually beg for assistance to pay the million dollar fee. The TM movement is and always been full of idiots. I have my doubts as to whether many could have made it in the real world. I know for a fact they couldn't and didn't. There are so many airy fairy neurotics who crowd into the lineup to see their current favorite guru or who run, feverishly, to jump on some bandwagon that sounds like the next greatest thing. There are many "misfits" and just plain strange human beings on this Earth and we have a small proportion right here on FFL (not to mention over at number 2) who fell into that category and who still appear (as of my last viewing of them before the Great Divide) just as obsessed as ever with the Movement and what it's up to or how they can work out their unresolved feelings about having been screwed by MMY and those who were his "henchmen". You really have to wonder what it would take for many of them to simply move on and make an effort to unencumber themselves from it all. Personally, I sense a kind of addiction - as twisted as it actually is. The irony of it all is many of these obsessors think of themselves as unattached just because they have a negative opinion. It doesn't matter whether one's opinion is negative or positive; as long as you keep obsessing and showing interest you're still very much involved. From: "awoelflebater@...
