Oh, indeed.  I noted *that* odd contradiction in an
earlier post.  Barry positively foamed at the mouth
when Shemp asked him about evidence for his claim of
having seen Frederick Lenz levitate, for example, but
derided those who believed in a past golden age as
recounted in the Vedas because there was no scientific
evidence for it.

But I don't think he's referring to the scientific
paradigm here, rather the TM paradigm of the nature
and mechanics of consciousness.
