Gerald Joe Moreno Responds To PhD Timothy Conway About The Jack Hawley Letter

Posted on: November 19, 2009

JH: Hysteria rises with the rumors.

TC: Yes, there is a tiny amount of “hysteria” with a few hysteria-prone devotees. But, again, we have here a strategy by Hawley to paint with a broad brush of “hysteria” all those who are deeply concerned about the ethics of Baba’s repeated acts of child molestation, rape, deceit, payment for sexual favors, etc. This strategy is an affront to all decent people who want to know the truth about what is happening, and who have a compassionate empathy for those who are being traumatized by Baba’s behavior.

Moreno’s Response: The “hysteria” belongs wholly to Anti-Sai Activists who purposely and maliciously distort facts with gutter untruths and deceptively use words like “pedophile”, “witnesses”, “testimonies”, “testified”, “charged”, “affidavits”, etc., although no court cases have ever been filed against Sai Baba in India, nor has he ever been formally charged with any crime (Ref).

Like a person suffering from “hysteria”, Timothy Conway had the effrontery to claim that Sathya Sai Baba engaged in “repeated acts of child molestation, rape, deceit, payment for sexual favors, etc.” based solely on stories he heard and read and blindly believed.

To Date: Not even one parent has claimed that Sathya Sai Baba molested his/her “child” or that Sathya Sai Baba engaged in acts of pedophilia. Therefore, the claims of “child molestation” are wholly unsubstantiated and are entirely rumor, gossip and unverifiable hearsay. Not even one Anti-Sai media organization or journalist has ever been able to independently confirm even one case of alleged pedophilia against Sai Baba in the past 10+ years. These are the type of gutter and poorly researched accusations that Timothy Conway must resort to in order to make his lamentable arguments against Sai Baba.

Timothy Conway told me (via e-mail) that his comments pertaining to “repeated acts” of “rape” were based on the stories of Dr. Bhatia, Terry Gallagher, Meenakshi Srikanth, Alaya Rahm and some stories related in Sai-related books:

  1. An anonymous account in The Findings (dubiously attributed to Dr. Bhatia) claimed Sai Baba raped a 7 year-old boy (since proven to be a ridiculous lie). Although the story alleged that the 7 year-old rape victim was examined by a doctor in Bangalore (whom allegedly confirmed the “rape”) the doctor did absolutely nothing about it, thereby engaging in an illegal cover-up by purposely failing to file a police complaint, which he would have been ethically and legally mandated to do (had it actually happened).
  2. Terry Gallagher claimed that Sai Baba raped children “as young as seven”, which was erroneously taken from the fraudulent story anonymously attributed to Dr. Bhatia (as described above).
  3. Meenakshi Srikanth (a person who leeched his Bachelors Degree off of Sathya Sai Baba’s generosity) relayed unsubstantiated, unverifiable and highly questionable stories of alleged and inferred abuse although he was never molested himself or witnessed an incident of alleged molestation himself. Srikanth repeated rumors mostly taken from Tal Brooke and Basava Premanand and inferred sexual activity sheerly through speculation, assumption and the word of others.
  4. Alaya Rahm claimed that Sathya Sai Baba allegedly attempted to forcibly rape him when Sathya Sai Baba was 70-72 years old and Alaya was 18-20 years old. Sathya Sai Baba is 5’2” tall and weighs a mere 108lbs. Contrast this with (at that time) Alaya Rahm being 6’6” tall and being height/weight proportional and in good health. Anti-Sai Activists often stated that Sathya Sai Baba suffered from frail health, stumbled often when he walked, had thinning hair, broke bones going back to 1988 and allegedly suffered several heart attacks. This is the type of frail person who allegedly has the libido of a teenager and the strength of a giant to subdue a healthy 6’6” tall basketball player in the prime of his youth. Needless to say, pivotal information has since been brought to light with Alaya Rahm’s Failed & Self-Dismissed Lawsuit.
  5. Timothy Conway alleged that various biographers mentioned (in Sai-related books) that Sai Students spent the night with Sai Baba in the Mandir. Although these unnamed and unsourced biographers never wrote anything even remotely alluding to sexual impropriety (no Sai-related book ever made such a claim), Timothy Conway erroneously viewed this as evidence of “repeated acts” of “rape”. This type of perverted and sexually-deviant reasoning speaks volumes about Timothy Conway and his bizarre sexual focus. Timothy Conway, like other Ex-Devotees, maliciously accused Sai Baba of “repeated acts” of “rape” based solely on speculation and perverse sexual inferences not rooted in fact.

Timothy Conway told me (via e-mail) that his comments pertaining to “repeated acts” of “payment for sexual favors” were based on the stories of Conny Larsson, Alaya Rahm, Meenakshi Srikanth, Jens Sethi and David Bailey:

  1. Conny Larsson alleged that from 1991 – 1999, he talked to about 25 “victims” who were paid or bribed with money for sex by Sai Baba. Needless to say, Conny Larsson (a psychotherapist turned psychic medium) did absolutely nothing about these alleged criminal acts. Conny Larsson even implied that he was a pimp for Sai Baba (supplying him with foreign men for sexual purposes), which would mean (of course) that Conny Larsson would be an accomplice in crime if these allegations were true and he would be directly responsible for the sexual abuse of alleged victims due to his two decades of silence (despite his moral and ethical responsibilities as a professional psychotherapist).

    After Conny Larsson saw a psychotherapist who deprogrammed him, he regained 39 year-old lost memories of being sexually abused as a child (which he claimed was the reason for his bi-sexuality) and realized (at the same time) that Sai Baba was a fraud and a molester. Just a few months prior to this deprogramming, Conny Larsson was sobbing uncontrollably and praising Sai Baba as God incarnate at a Sai Retreat in the USA (Ref).

    Conny Larsson is not credible because he continually changes his stories, progressing from fairly innocuous claims to highly defamatory and criminal ones. For example, Conny is now claiming (with no proof) that Sai Baba’s vibuthi is made from the ash of burned human bodies. Conny believes (again, with no proof) that Sai Baba runs pedophile and people trafficking rings by shipping Negros from New York’s ghettos to India for sexual purposes. Conny even claimed that Sai Baba’s airport was built specifically for human trafficking. Conny falsely said that the brass railings in the mandir compound are made of gold. It goes without mention that these totally unbelievable and criminal accusations have never (ever) been substantiated by any credible media or legal organization. Consequently, Conny Larsson’s claims are fraudulent and without merit.

    Conny Larsson recently accused Maharishi Mahesh Yogi of sexual impropriety although he never mentioned one word about it in 30+ years (Ref). Conny Larsson (who had been seeing psychotherapists since the age of 12) is not credible and his ridiculous claims are totally unsubstantiated, unverifiable and grow more and more exaggerated with the passage of time. Bjorn Sandstrom said that Conny’s penchant for exaggerations was well known even when Conny was a Sai Devotee.

  2. Al Rahm personally told me that Sai Baba gave $1,000 to Alaya to give to his mother (Marisa Rahm) to purchase food, saris, rent, etc. Al and Marisa Rahm stated (in audio-taped talks at Sai Retreats) that they had financial hardships and Sai Baba assured them he would help (and he did). Al Rahm claimed that Sai Baba gave $3,000 dollars to Alaya. Lewis Kreydick testified in his sworn and videotaped deposition that Alaya showed him $300 given to him by Sai Baba (not $3,000, as exaggerated by Al Rahm). According to Kreydick, Alaya told him that Sai Baba gave him the money as spending money and Alaya used it for exactly that purpose. Alaya showed Al and Marisa Rahm all the money that Sai Baba gave him and even told Lewis Kreydick about it. At that time, Alaya apparently had nothing to hide and he and his parents saw nothing wrong with the money they were given (they willingly accepted the money and spent it). Years later, the story was changed.
  3. Jens Sethi claimed that an un-named Rwandan soldier was given gifts for sex by Sai Baba. Sethi’s story is unsubstantiated, unverifiable and is sourced to an anonymous person.
  4. Meenakshi Srikanth’s story about “Nandan” is unsubstantiated, unverifiable and is sourced to an anonymous person. Srikanth even claimed that Sai Baba had “Nandan” open envelopes containing money in public for everyone to see. Why would Sai Baba give money to “Nandan” in public if he had something to hide?
  5. David Bailey was never sexually abused himself and he never claimed to have witnessed an incident of alleged sexual abuse himself. Therefore, how did David Bailey know that Sai Baba was offering various individuals money in exchange for sexual favors? David Bailey made this speculation only after he defected from Sai Baba. Why would Sai Baba give money to various individuals in front of David Bailey if he had something to hide?

It is also important to point out that Sai Baba is known to give money to male and female devotees in need. Even Hilda Charlton wrote about money given to her by Sai Baba (Ref).

Timothy Conway blindly makes his case based on allegations he read and believed but never properly researched or verified for himself. Timothy Conway’s “strategy” is to affront all decent people who want to know the truth about the allegations without rumor-mongering, speculations and exaggerations. Timothy Conway’s “compassionate empathy” was so great that he completely ignored the heart-wrenching pleas of alleged victims (who said they were willing to testify against Sai Baba) and refused to do the ethical thing and help them file a court case in India. It certainly appears that Timothy Conway’s “compassionate empathy” was lip service only.

JH: People face a crisis of faith.

TC: In the present case, if people’s faith has become an idolatrous worship of the name and form of Sai (in the same manner that esteemed philosophers, theologians and religion historians like John Hick, John Cobb, Jr., and Wilfred Cantwell Smith have accused too many Christians of idolizing the historic person of Jesus of Nazareth), then this idolatrous faith needs to be smashed open in a “crisis” that will free such persons from their idolatry and liberate them into the worship of the true, transcendent, formless God.

Now, I am aware that the formless, transpersonal, transcendent God can take a personal form — this is India’s doctrine of the Avatar, and Christianity’s idea of the Divine Incarnation of the Son. And faith in the Avatar or Divine Incarnation can be legitimate if it does not descend into narrow-minded sectarianism (always a danger for those religious-spiritual groups that worship a specific form of the Divine).

But if Sathya Sai Baba is acting in ways that seriously violate traditionally accepted notions of Dharma, Ahimsa, Prema and Satya (Righteousness, Nonviolence, Love and Truth), then our faith in Baba as “the avatar [DIvine Incarnation] of the age” needs to go through a crisis and get undone and transformed, refocused onto the formless Divine.

Moreno’s Response: Although Timothy Conway is a promoter of Hinduism, the Vedas, Gurus and the concept of Avatars, he is completely ignorant about the fact that Avatars do not live and act in the traditionally accepted norms of Sathya, Dharma, Shanti, Prema and Ahima (Truth, Righteousness, Peace, Love and Non-Violence). A few examples:

  1. Parasurama, the ax-wielding Avatar, was said to have slaughtered every adult Kshatriya on Earth twenty-one times (filling five lakes with blood) because he was filled with revenge at his father’s murder.
  2. Lord Rama was said to have slaughtered millions of human-like demons during his lifetime. Rama exiled his wife Sita (while she five months pregnant with twins) into a forest simply because someone overheard an intemperate washerman say that Rama took back his wife after she lived in the house of another man (i.e., Ravana). Rama felt that his dharma might be stained, so he exiled his pregnant wife to the forest despite her trial by fire that proved her innocence.
  3. It is alleged that the Kurukshetra War (a war that if true would be the bloodiest war in recorded history) resulted from Lord Krishna’s failed peace mission with the Kauravas. It is said that literally millions of men died within a period of 18 days (leaving innumerable wives widowed and children orphaned) and that rivers of blood flowed the carnage. Lord Krishna (a Purna Avatar) even stated in the Gita that the Kurukshetra war was a door to heaven. During the lifetime of Lord Krishna, there were allegedly numerous instances of violence, curses, demon-attacks, etc., that resulted in the deaths of many people, children and even babies (as in the case of Kamsa where he bludgeoned babies in anticipation of Lord Krishna’s birth). Krishna’s escapades with the Gopis are clearly sexual and have been immortalized in erotic painting and art. Krishna had a habit of stealing as a child and was even nic-named the “butter thief” and he often lied to Mother Yoshoda. Lord Krishna is alleged to have lived in incest with his sister Subhadra (sharing her with his brother Balarama). The Rig Veda mentioned that the “Vedic Pushan is the lover of his sister” (Rig Veda – Book 6, Hymn 55:4). There are stories about how Lord Krishna’s 16,000 drunken wives (yes, all allegedly married to one person) were ready to commit incest with Krishna’s son, Samba. As a result of this incident, Lord Krishna cursed Samba to be afflicted with leprosy and cursed his 16,000 wives to be carried off by barbarians after his death (which allegedly happened right before Arjuna’s eyes). Lord Krishna also willed the destruction of his family and accepted a curse that forced the Yadhava Clan to slaughter themselves in an orgy of bloodlust. Sri Krishna even beheaded Sisupala in public.

Needless to say, devotees interpret these strange and highly questionable incidents as being part of God’s inscrutable lila or play and eulogize these lilas through song, dance and art. Devotees argue that ordinary humans cannot fathom or plumb the depths of the Avatar. The Avatar is alleged to see past, present and future and his actions (no matter how seeming immoral or criminal) are alleged to ultimately serve a dharmic purpose. Even the numerous atrocities that God commanded in the Old Testament (including the coveting of virgins and the slaughter of pregnant women and children) are excused and explained away. Avatars (whose powers distinguish them from ordinary humans) do not always abide by the traditionally accepted norms of Sathya, Dharma, Shanti, Prema and Ahimsa. Therefore, Timothy Conway’s arguments are hypocritical and self-serving because he is a promoter of Avatars, Gurus and Hindu scriptures. Whatever justifications Timothy Conway may make for Avatars could similarly be applied to Sai Baba by his devotees.

JH: Some of them [those following Sai] leave, some stay.

TC: I would comment that there are any number of motives, some mature and some immature, why certain people leave Baba, and there are any number of motives, mature and immature, why certain people stay. We need to look at the maturity of the motive — not the bare fact that “some leave, some stay.”

So, for instance, someone who has sold all her possessions and bought or rented a home outside Prashanti Nilayam and is now 80 years old might not have the financial means to re-locate somewhere else. She might continue to spend time at the ashram canteen or darshan grounds simply because so many old friends are there and also in a spirit of gratitude for the many beautiful experiences brought by her association with Baba. Yet she might also feel the need to strongly critique Baba’s behavior among her acquaintances and call for realization of the Divine Inner Guru. In that respect, she might be staying at Prashanti yet will have maturely “left Baba.”

On the other hand, some persons may “stay” with Baba, either at Prashanti or at their local Sai Center, merely because they refuse to believe the accounts about Baba’s sexual improprieties or apologetically rationalize them away with high-flown mental gymnastics. These persons don’t have the requisite maturity to grow up and face the ethical implications of what Baba is doing to innocent youth.

Then again, there may be people who run away from Baba and become obsessive critics of Sai, because they suffer from a reactionary, immature sense of ego-betrayal, and act in puerile fashion like a jilted teen lover—filled with vitriolic rage.

Moreno’s Response: Dr. Conway’s reference to an 80 year-old woman pertains to Jeanette Ramsey, whose story he misrepresented with incomplete facts. Even as recently as 2005 (the last time I was in India), Jeanette Ramsey was still praising Sai Baba, carried pictures of him and occasionally attended darshans. Mrs. Ramsey is a staunch practitioner and promoter of amaroli (urine therapy). Therefore, it is not completely clear if Jeanette Ramsey “maturely“ left Sai Baba (as Timothy Conway would like for others to believe) or she immaturely feigns devotion and lies to others about her devotee status.

It is amusing that Timothy Conway distinguishes himself from Ex-Devotees who “suffer from a reactionary, immature sense of ego-betrayal, and act in puerile fashion like a jilted teen lover—filled with vitriolic rage”. I think Timothy Conway’s responses on this page fully support the perception that he is suffering “from a reactionary, immature sense of ego-betrayal, and acts in a puerile fashion like a jilted teen lover—filled with vitriolic rage”. My webpages about Ex-Devotees fully documents their reactionary, immature and vitriolic smear campaigns against Sai Baba.

——————————————————————————————————————

JH: How one fares in this crisis depends on one’s “capacity” (an important spiritual term for the strength of one’s faith and love).

TC: I agree. But beware Hawley’s unstated implication that those who stay with Baba have some greater spiritual capacity than those who move beyond the name/form of Sathya Sai.

Moreno’s Response: Timothy Conway obsessively attempts to convince others about moving beyond the “name and form” of Sai Baba to the “formless God”, “formless Divine”, “Divine Inner Guru” etc. What is so hypocritical about Conway’s rants is that he thoroughly promotes (in published books) and believes in numerous “names and forms” belonging to various Gurus and spiritual personalities.

As a matter of fact, Timothy Conway is a disciple of Nisargadatta Maharaj and rants and raves about the “names and forms” of Jesus, Buddha, Ramana Maharshi, Shirdi Sai Baba, Ramakrishna, Meher Baba, Nityananda, the 14th Dalai Lama and 16th Karmapa, Padre Pio, Gemma Galgani, Maria Esperanza, Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Hsuan-hua, Taungpulu Sayadaw, Ajahn Chah, Cheng Yen, Sheikh al-Alawi, Anasuya Devi, Anandamayi Ma, Amritanandamayi (Amma), Narayana Guru, Yoga Swami, Brahmajna Ma, Swami Gnanananda, Annamalai Swami, Hsu Yun, Hsuan Hua, Harada Roshi, Thich Nhat Hanh, Ajahn Chah, Shaykh al-Alawi, Thomas Merton, Henri Le Saux (Abhishiktananda), Seraphim of Sarov, Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneersohn and “several thousand other sages, saints, adepts, prophets and incarnations”.

Isn’t it strange (and hypocritical) that for someone who ceaselessly attempts to advise others on moving beyond the “name and form” of Sai Baba, he promotes, eulogizes and is devoted to the “names and forms” of others?

——————————————————————————————————————

JH: The big question, of course, is “is it true?” And the truth is that we (all of us) don’t know! Many think they know, but they don’t really know. But I do — at least I know some things (as I’m sure many others do also). I will not talk about all I know, but I can say this: It is NOT what some minds have leaped to.

TC: Notice that Hawley, in his characteristic evasiveness in this essay, never identifies the reference for “it” in his posed question, “is it true?” This is his way of covering up and keeping the lid on the serious allegations that are being made about Baba’s sexual behavior (and perhaps Baba’s alleged trickery is also referred to here — though I think the reference is primarily to Baba’s sexual activities). Nowhere in his essay does he mention any specific behavior about which the “rumors” are arising.

Next, Hawley engages us in some fancy-dancy epistemology: how do we ever know what we claim to know? Yes, epistemological concerns are valid in many areas of life, and ultimately one can make a great case for skepticism when it comes to existential truth claims. (See, for example, the ancient Buddhist master Nagarjuna’s Madhyamika Buddhist movement, basis for the Ch’an/Zen/Son Buddhist tradition of China/Japan/Korea — which urged that we refrain from fixed positions and rigid mental views, and instead abide in the “non-dwelling,” “no position,” “don’t-know” Zen mind. A similar position developed in certain Western schools of mysticism, such as advocated by the medieval British Christian author of the famous treatise “The Cloud of Unknowing.”)

But within our human society’s conventions, when we have sworn affidavits by individuals who are willing to go on record and say (and be willing to say in a court of law) that Baba has molested them as minors, and inappropriately touched their genitals (it is ALWAYS INAPPROPRIATE for an adult to touch the genitals of a minor EXCEPT IN A LICENSED, CONSENSUAL MEDICAL SITUATION) — then this evasive epistemological smokescreen put up by Hawley is unconscionable behavior. It serves as part of a cover-up, an unlawful, prosecutable conspiracy of silence.

Mr. Hawley appears to be ignorant of the fact that in most civilized countries there are “mandated reporting” rules holding that adults who know of the sexual molestation of minors MUST report these allegations to the authorities and to any persons who might become victims of this molestation behavior. Hawley’s cover-up makes him an accomplice in the sexual molestation crimes committed by Baba.

Notice here, too, the presumptuous conceit displayed by Hawley in his assertion: “Many think they know, but they don’t really know. But I do — at least I know some things (as I’m sure many others do also). I will not talk about all I know, but I can say this: It is NOT what some minds have leaped to.”

In making this statement, Hawley presumes to know more than those who disagree with him — that is, he tacitly claims to know the real meaning of Baba’s behavior. And this presumptuous attitude he maintains throughout the rest of his essay.

On this point, we should remember that numerous longtime Sai devotees have left Sathya Sai, explicitly or ostensibly over the inappropriate sexual activity by Baba. These longtime close observers obviously perceived a different meaning for Baba’s behavior than the meaning Hawley attributes to this behavior. Hawley thinks Sai’s behavior is evidence of the Divine. Former devotees apparently think otherwise. In short, there are different interpretations for this sexual behavior, and Hawley presumes to have the only legitimate interpretation.

Incidentally, I am not presuming, in my critique of Sai’s sexual activities with children and unconsenting young men as “criminal,” to have the only legitimate interpretation, either. I have sometimes thought that Sai is lustfully “taking on” (on a psychic level) the lust of humanity to clear our sexual karma. But the conventions of our society’s laws must take precedence over our metaphysical rationalizations about Sai’s molesting of children.

Moreno’s Response: It is completely true that Jack Hawley never mentioned any particulars about the rumors he addressed in his letter. Such being the case, it is be noted that Timothy Conway speculated, assumed and jumped to conclusions a priori as to what he thought Jack Hawley might have been referring to in his letter. Apparently, Timothy Conway never sought clarification from Jack Hawley first-hand and simply responded to his letter, basing his arguments on paranoia and highly subjective inferences. After forming his conspiracy theory (based on self-admitted and reckless speculations), Timothy Conway shamelessly and criminally accused Jack Hawley of being an “accomplice in sexual molestation crimes”. This type of illogic and irrationality is highly indicative of an extremist who relies on straw man fallacies to win an illusionary point. Using Timothy Conway’s logic, alleged victim’s parents are “accomplices in sexual molestation crimes” and failed in their legal duty of “mandated reporting” because there are no known “child molestation” charges, court cases or basic police complaints filed against Sai Baba in India.

Timothy Conway again resorted to his faulty “sworn affidavits” argument. This time around, however, Timothy Conway exaggerated and claimed that alleged victims were willing to go on record (even in a court of law) and say that Sai Baba molested them as minors. Where did Timothy Conway get this information from? Although Timothy Conway told me he got his “sworn affidavits” information from the India Today article and Glen Meloy (on whose word he blindly accepted), it is peculiar that Jens Sethi and Hans de Kraker were adults when they had their alleged unsavory experiences with Sai Baba (not “minors” as spuriously alleged by Conway). No one has been able to produce even one affidavit from any alleged victim. In 10+ years, no alleged victim has ever filed a court case against Sai Baba in India, thus refuting the claim that alleged victims said (and where did they make that claim to begin with?) they would testify in a court of law that they were “molested as minors”. As discussed earlier, Timothy Conway’s unsupported claims of “child molestation” have been refuted in my article entitled False Pedophile Allegations Against Sathya Sai Baba.

The main thrusts to Timothy Conway’s arguments are based on stories and Anti-Sai propaganda that he read and blindly believed. It goes without mention that Timothy Conway is a very gullible individual who is willing to go to unreasonable and unsound extremes to explain away valid questions regarding alleged victims. For example, several alleged victims claimed that while they were being molested by Sai Baba in the private interview room, he made “loud moaning sounds”, “loud noises”, “loud voices”, “loud, wild voices”, etc., while people in the adjacent room heard absolutely nothing (although the private and main interview rooms are separated by a door covered with a cloth curtain only). It is completely true that Sathya Sai Baba can be heard whispering to devotees in the private interview room from the adjacent room. I have experienced this first-hand, as have numerous others. If Sathya Sai Baba made any sort of “loud” moaning sounds, people in the adjacent room would have heard it.

Attempting to refute these facts, Timothy Conway first attempted to change the words of alleged victims by claiming what they really meant was “very soft moaning sounds, inaudible beyond the curtains or walls”. Then Timothy Conway attempted to argue that if Sai Baba possesses paranormal powers, he could easily “warp spacetime” by creating an “insular interdimensional environment” where he could engage in abuse without easy detection. Attempting to bolster this asinine argument, Timothy Conway argued that people who are abducted by aliens and who experience the “missing time” phenomenon, have been lifted, transported and relocated to other areas without their spouses being aware of anything amiss. That’s right, Timothy Conway believes that it is possible that Sai Baba molested alleged victims on another dimension, which is why it is so difficult for them to prove their allegations and why there is an abysmal lack of witnesses supporting their claims (Ref: Conway Email No. 10).

Similarly, Timothy Conway believed and endorsed the alleged experiences of Shirlи Klein-Carsh, a so-called “Indigo” (an alleged extraterrestrial alien that voluntarily incarnates on Earth) who claimed she was psychologically, spiritually and artistically guided by a cleverly disguised alien from Sirius (the star in the constellation of Canis Major) who worked as an electronics repairman in a second-hand shop (Ref).

Timothy Conway is a true believer and promoter of Gurus [3], Mystics [3], Enlightened Masters [3], psychics [1] [2] [4], levitation [5], bi-location [5], miracles [5], remote-viewing [4], elementals, meditation [2] [6], paranormal powers [5], aliens [4] [10], rebirth [1] [7], reincarnation [1] [7], karma [8], oracles [2], I-Ching [2], sensitives [1] [2], channelers [1] [2], astrology [2], astrologists [2], palm-reading [2], non-duality [9], etc. (the list goes on and on).

Timothy Conway is also of the opinion that Sathya Sai Baba has/had genuine paranormal powers, but explains away these powers as:

  • Sai Baba being a “contaminated channel” for the postmortem influence and powers of Shirdi Sai Baba (who died in 1918).
  • Sai Baba being a “highly adept but fallen yogi”.
  • Sai Baba being assisted by “elemental spirits” or other entities from interdimensional planes. Timothy Conway said, “No joke: it’s a very old, worldwide knowledge that one can derive certain powers by contacting such entities.” (Ref: Conway Email No. 8).

Timothy Conway even suggested that there is a spiritual reason behind these allegations and said:

“I have sometimes thought that Sai is lustfully ‘taking on’ (on a psychic level) the lust of humanity to clear our sexual karma.”

In the past, Timothy Conway made this same argument:

“Now, a purna avatar would, it seems, incarnate the totality of God, including the polarity play of light-dark, purity-mischief, unattachment-lust, and so on. This is a disturbing concept, but perhaps quite applicable to Baba’s controversial activity. Moreover, the sexual activity, which we now know to apparently involve considerable lust, might be Baba’s way of transmuting the very heavy sexual energy among humanity at this time on the planet.” (This comment, taken from the Sai Critic, has been confirmed by Conway to be his actual words)

Therefore, Timothy Conway’s shabby and conspiratorial arguments (via speculations, assumptions and straw-man fallacies) are indicative of his “presumptuous attitude” and “presumptuous conceit” (tones he maintains throughout the rest of his responses).
