David Christopher Lane (born April 29, 1956, Burbank, California) is a professor of philosophy and sociology at Mt. San Antonio College, in Walnut, California. He is most notable for exposing Eckankar as a cult and its founder, Paul Witchell, as a plagiarist in his book The Making of a Spiritual Movement: The Untold Story of Paul Twitchell and Eckankar. He is also notable for spotting the most radical and controversial Sage of India, Baba Faqir Chand, a great exponent of Surat Shabd Yoga. He edited and published a book with the title 'The Unknowing Sage:Life and Work of Baba Faqir Chand'. The preface of this book explains the scientific aspects of inner experiences of Surat Shabd Yogis. The book also contains Faqir's interview taken by Mark Juergensmeyer which contains almost all important aspects of Faqir's philosophy.[1] Contents 1 Education 2 Religious criticism 3 Bibliography 4 See also 5 References 6 External links Education Lane has a Ph.D. and an M.A. in the sociology of knowledge from the University of California at San Diego.

Lane has also produced a number of short films, including Vertical Geometry, Moving Water, Liquid Air, and Digital Baba.

He puts some of his discussions on The Neural Surfer, the Mt. SAC philosophy department web site which also contains Lane's online diary and essays of a satirical nature on religious topics.
