Oh I love what Thomas Canada has posted to Bob Thurman. They are wonderful!! And I also like the fact that Robert Thurman did not reply to any of them and what is even odder are comments down below that praise thurman, ignoring completely Canada's comments. To me, it does seem that either Thurman had rallied one or two of his friends to comment, or that the few commenters there just wanted to complement Thurman's writing (um, if i were them, id really read the comments first before putting my comments there, but there are a lot of interesting people in the world, so i'd rather not want to figure out what are they really up to). But those comments will make people think what is really going on with bob thurman and why is he supporting a cause that oppresses another group of people. The fact that bob refuses to answer, or at least acknowledge shows that he does not know enough or is unable to answer all the points given. Somehow it is amusing to see such a scholar being defeated by someone on the internet.
As a scholar, thurman should really be more neutral in his stance, instead of going all the way to the Dalai Lama's camp and then passing off lies and distorted truths as facts in his material. I wonder what kind of negative karma will people like that accumulate as each person misled by them into a pit of wrong views would have their negative karma attributed to thurman. I wonder if we can prove that Thurman has been distorting Tibetan history to the deans of the universities, will his doctorate be stripped? Will he be dismissed and ignored and thrown into a pile and declared a fraud and fake? hmmm.
