Mehta must repair his intellectual infirmity

[Larval subjects Says: April 3, 2012 at 10:45 pm Whether we’re talking about teleology as a ground of individuals or organs, the problem is exactly the same and equally illegitimate in contemporary biology. Matthew David Segall Says: April 3, 2012 at 11:30 pm Contemporary Intelligent Design comes out of William Paley’s natural theology, who not incidentally was a big influence on Darwin before his trip on the Beagle.]

Sri Aurobindo alone, through his Judeo-Vedic concoction, has resolved the age-old ontological puzzles with a scientific flourish. Mehta is terribly wrong on Sri Aurobindo and his students by assuming that they are wallowing in confusion. Heehs has tried his best to subvert the reputation of Sri Aurobindo, undermine his supremacy in knowledge, and destabilize his followers' base. Instead of believing him, Mehta is invited to study The Life Divine with me and repair his intellectual infirmity before age catches up with him.

Mehta's borrowed assertions, ironically, prove the very apprehensions expressed by those opposed to the book. Heehs provides a ready collection of adverse tidbits with evidence which can easily be used by the enemies of Sri Aurobindo against him. A product of his forty years’ skill and ill-will, no doubt.
