Srila Giri Maharaja – “Another fake challenge from Steve Deace?”

Date: 8/3/18

Mr. Deace,

Hare Krishna.

During your Podcast Ep. 338 you presented the following challenge:

@25:11 “because the only worldview The only one; pester me, bring me your emails, bring me your best arguments; i’ve held all your positions over my 45 years on this planet, and I frankly probably know your positions better than you do. So, bring them to me. Flood the inbox at [email protected] Show me another worldview that can adequately explain why the world is the way it is, why we as a species, as human beings are the way we are, and what the solution to it is.”

You then say: “Let me repeat that.”: (paraphrasing) Why the world is the way it is etc., and you repeat the challenge adding “show me another worldview outside the worldview of the Bible that answers those questions. There isn’t one.” @26:03

My spiritual master Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami, the founder of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness aka the “Hare Krishna Movement”, is widely respected for bringing Krishna consciousness to the Western world. If you will read his book Bhagavad-gita As It Is under the guidance of a bonafide teacher you should be able to understand there is “another world view outside the world view of the Bible that answers those questions.”

I will be happy to discuss all the relevant points with you to your full satisfaction, if given the chance.

You have ignored my previous responses to such challenges as the one currently under discussion. Is this another fake challenge, where you pretend to invite an argument and then ignore it when it comes? If it is a real challenge and a real invitation I will only believe it if you respond to this email and invite me to do what you have challenged me to do, present “another world view outside the world view of the Bible that answers those questions.”

I pray this finds you in good health and spirits.

Respectfully,

Swami B.K. Giri

Flood the inbox—
I humbly invite all the preachers of Krishna consciousness to do as Mr. Steve Deace invited you to do: “Flood the inbox at [email protected] Show me [him] another worldview that can adequately explain why the world is the way it is, why we as a species, as human beings are the way we are, and what the solution to it is.”
