A Christian site, yes, but 'deprogramming?'  
Definitely not.  See:

http://www.dci.dk/en/mtrl/what.html

Their stance is actually quite sane, given 
the source.

That said, what about the question itself?
Does *anyone* here know whether Maharishi
spent more than a couple of years in his
studies, whether he ever took exams, and
thus whether widespread claims of him being
a 'scientist' were ever true?

I would suggest that if no one does, the
actual point brought up by this website is
a valid one, that he's gotten away with a
"host of absurdities" because almost no one
ever bothered to question what they were
told.
