Yes, between the three, I would probably have a better
chance with the bomb. :-)

That would be a verrry long list. :-)

Yes, and it concerns me that many responses on this net
concerning source teachings keep retreating back to doctrinal
viewpoints that ignore the historical facts and only serve to
justify the various society's claims to superiority over the
others. Historically we have originators and commentators. The
commentators cannot be the originators, unless we want to count
them as originators of new theosophies. If so, that's fine with
me. We have Platonism and Neo-Platonism. Using the same
guidelines, we have Theosophy and Neo-Theosophy.

Sorry, I was in the middle of writing a paper at the time.
I think however that you chose a difficult article. In our
classes, students usually read and discuss this article at least
three times before I'm satisfied that they have grasped the

Perhaps John will set up a theos-christ for those who wish
to discuss fundamentalism and theosophy? :-)

Why not? They referred to themselves as students.

Or once the teachings get confused enough, we can all go out
and dig our own tunnels.

I'm looking forward to it. Thanks in advance.

Yep. One orthodoxy meets another.

Spoken as one who is inspired by the Maha Chohan. ;-)

Can I have one too? I want a propeller on mine.
