You have some good thoughts in that post. I do appreciate your attempt to create a more optimal Google search result for that auto-complete search, thank you. Here is my perspective.
As Tom repeatedly says in the book, we should approach his model with open-minded skepticism, scrutinize it, and develop our own model through our own experiences. To me, this is a sign of his authenticity: he exhorts us to use the information in the book as merely a stepping stone, not as a definitive or authoritative scripture, nor as a set of lifestyle choices that must be slavishly obeyed in order to attain something.
In my view, MBT is full of astonishing claims that we should interrogate and be (open-mindedly) skeptical of. The very bedrock of the model is shocking--that consciousness is fundamental--a dynamic, evolving system developing learning labs in which its individuated parts can become more organized and therefore continue the evolution of the whole. Add to that the existence of multiple physical and non-physical realities; the continuity of consciousness across incarnations, retaining only the "accumulated quality;" accessing past and future databases; modifying physical reality with focused intent; and many more astonishing claims. It is no wonder that people might be taken aback!
Furthermore, the predominant paradigm of most people alive today is scientific materialism, positing that nothing exists outside of objective physical reality, the universe came out of nothing from nowhere, and there is no underlying, metaphysical reason for human existence. As Tom says, scientists are the "high priests" of today's society. So, since MBT challenges these beliefs, believers will seek to "debunk" it, in the same way that religions have attempted to "debunk" science that challenges religious beliefs. Some people will be completely closed-minded, refusing to even consider any of the model and debunking it solely on the basis that it is not scientific materialism. Others will be open to parts of the model, but drop other parts that do not make sense to them or that they cannot verify. All of this is fine, and even healthy.
Through observation and experimentation, scientific models have developed providing evidence that, for instance the earth is neither fixed, nor the center of the universe, nor is the sun pulled across the sky by Apollo's chariot. Multiple data points are collected (telescopic observations, mathematical calculations and analyses, etc.), and a heliocentric model emerges which explains the data better than a geocentric model. The old beliefs are let go--sometimes gently, sometimes after persecuting and trying to silence and shut down the heretics. In any case, as knowledge displaces ignorance, we study the old beliefs fondly, as indicators of the evolution of human understanding.
MBT provides a coherent, thorough, comprehensive, and deep model for reality. It draws on Tom's own experience, and builds on mystical insights from ancient religions and modern scientific understanding, and can be a more accessible and complete account than either of those things. It is really not our business here in the MBT forum to force a great awakening on the people. Everyone is on their own path, as a flower bud blooms in its own way, without being forced. So as Sainbury said, we do not worry about people "debunking" Tom or MBT. We are more concerned with presenting clear information about the model, and providing assistance in interpreting the model to people who are ready to bloom.
