Of course those words weren't directed to you, they were in a message to
someone else. If you chose to take them personally then it's strictly your
problem because they weren't directed to you. Now let's get one thing
straight. When I use the words "Core Doctrines" I am using them in the sense
that people like John Algeo do, and that refers to a body of unquestionable
doctrines that one must accept or be considered something other than a
Theosophist. What I am protesting is a body of Doctrines that are being
given the force of Dogma. As to figuring "simple mathematics" on my
own..wanna bet? I was reading when I was three.

Sarcasm sometimes relieves one of the responsibility of being actively
hostile. As to you chris, no I respond to what you say, but I man NOT
respond to what you may have MEANT to say. That is why when your trying to
talk to me, absolute (there's that word again)precision in language is
required. I will respond to say, I refuse to attempt to ascertain what you
meant to say if the two things differ.

 Once again I'll insert myself before the commercial. I have to assume that
your last comment was intended to be humorous and I will accept it as such.
Otherwise, I really don't understand it's motivation or inspiration.
