These guys are blind fantatic anti-TM fundamnentalists. They post a 
study, withoout reading it, that they think negates TM, but in fact 
is positive about TM. Then they post an study that shows that SSRS 
technique is "inferior to electroconvulsive therapy" and is no 
better than a placebo, and think this is a positive report. 

This is what disturbs me the most about SSRS people. They appear to 
blind fanatic fundamentalists with no published science to back up 
their wild claims.

And it REALLY gets their goat....when I say: Hundreds of studies 
published in peer-reviewed scientific journals, positive effects 
replicated time and time again, in double-blind studies. (which in  
their poor understanding they do not realise that this is designed 
to negate researcher bias. They think double-blind study 
means "telling the researcher be quite and telling the subjects 
to "shhh"

Lol, what a bunch of fundamentalist fanatics. They sound dangerous 
to me though. They tell people that SSRS got a degree in advanced 
physics at 17, when in fact he doesn't have any degree at all. Scary
