What concerned me, in discussion of the Vedic studies program, is  
that what they are saying is simply not true. Much of what they are  
describing is simply NOT "Vedic"--a word very loosely bandied about-- 
or is simply insupportable. Now if any of these poor people enter the  
Vedic study program and move on to other institutions they're going  
to be in for a shock, because they are going to find out they've been  
fed a bunch of lies. It's like doctor Pete has described where they  
cut-and-pasted lectures of visiting scholars *so much* that it  
reverses the message the person was conveying. Imagine a curriculum  
based on that type of environment and that is what I expect these  
poor kids will get--peppered with a lot of quantum bullshit. Very  
slick presentation though!

I remember when institutions of "higher learning" actually tried to  
teach the truth.
