To put not too fine a point on the matter.
Nor to let *facts* get in the way of one's ignorant putdowns, either. Anybody who's paid attention to Lawson's posts over the years is aware he's extremely well versed in brain-wave research (and not just TM's research, either). Plus which, recently he's been working closely with Fred Travis, one of MUM's much-published (in independent journals) experts in EEG and related research on TM-- http://www.mum.edu/cosmic/faculty/travis --to develop a computer animation of brain-wave patterns in TMers. None of this necessarily means Lawson is competent to interpret EEGs on his own--as opposed to reporting research findings--but then he hasn't claimed to be able to do that, has he?
