"You do know who David Icke is don't you, I wouldn't believe a single word of anything he has had anything to do with."

I've read Icke's website, I don't know of many people who he DOESN"T think is a child molester, on his list of molesters he's got such diverse people as Bob Hope, Boxcar Wille, and the Bush & Clinton clans!

Hi Amen Moses,
I thought he had the catchiest title. If you want more credible confirmation about Sai Baba, it exists on the web and is pretty easy to find. Either way, it is not of much interest to me. Now the kids parents and Indian authorities it should be!!

Like I said, this site has lots of good information about Sai Baba, including personal testimonies from ex-devotees about molestation, and the possibility of a covered-up murder as well.

However, there were a few skeptics here and there in past centuries whose writings survive, such as Lucian of Samosata, whose account of Alexander of Abonutichus is absolutely priceless.

Lucian did not live in Palestine in 30 CE; he lived in Anatolia over a century later; it would have been nice if he had had a chance to see the historical Jesus Christ in action, if there had been a historical Jesus Christ.

As it was, his opinion of early Christianity was that it was an oddball cult.
