What you fail to mention is that Ananda tried to get the sexual harassment lawsuit struck out on the grounds that it was a malicious prosecution and a conspiracy with SRF. These claims were rejected by the court. Ananda filed a counterclaim which alleged involvement by SRF. This was dropped when the action started, and Ananda's lawyer stated in court "If I may, your honor, as far as I am concerned, the whole SRF thing is dead".
Much like the airplane incident, which you initially denied existed, the story of SRF's involvement in the sexual harassment lawsuit against Ananda is well documented.
If, as you say "the story of SRF's involvement in the sexual harassment lawsuit against Ananda is well documented" then show us this documentation. The fact is that you cannot. There are plenty of allegations flying around but when it comes to evidence there is none, just quotations and references to a website which itself contains no evidence.
I did not deny that the aeroplane incident occured, I just pointed out that no reasonable evidence had been produced. When I found out about the newspaper article I was happy to point out it's existence.
12 years of copyright lawsuits, a sexual harassment lawsuit, claims that Kriyananda is 'the anti-christ', bombing 9 year old children with sexually explicit leaflets, and a whole lot more- and you believe that this is simply a 'mythical conspiracy theory' and a 'paranoid atmosphere'?
12 years of copyright lawsuits. True. Ananda has used every available legal means to drag the litigation out and justify it's copyright infringements.
A sexual harassment lawsuit. Brought by a former Ananda member. Nothing to do with SRF.
Claims that Kriyananda is 'the anti-christ' Heresay evidence about a couple of individual monastics expressing their private opinions, probably in response to questions. Big deal.
Bombing 9 year old children with sexually explicit leaflets. You have yet to show any evidence that SRF was involved or that the leaflets were sexually explicit.
Conspiracy theories are called theories because they have no documenting evidence. For a great deal of evidence that supports the above claims, spend some time at the www.yoganandrediscovered.com website.
Many conspiracy theories are backed by a great deal of evidence and research. Check out the many theories surrounding the assasination of US President Kennedy to see how much evidence the proponents can produce. However even strong evidence does not make something true.
Anyone who cares to look at "Yogananda Rediscovered" which is quoted so often here would see that the site contains virtually no evidence. Accusations are there in abundance, but supporting evidence is almost non existant.
I am fed up with Ananda supporters coming here to make allegations which are not supported, except by references to a website which also contains insufficient evidence. Something is not necessarily true just because it is written on the internet. Ananda and it's followers should either put up or shut up.
