One can make the case that just about anything can be a tool for evolution,
depending upon how people experience it.  The question is how they were used
in the context of th TS.

My feeling is that if the people running the TS at that time were inititates
then the system is really in serious trouble and the lords of karma should be
fired.  Looking at them and their behavior the immediate question becomes
"Initiates into what?  The Ancient and Royal Order of Congenital Loonies?"
 These people are not to be taken seriously except as a cautionary example.

When it comes spiritual matters, as in everything else, I am a firm believer
in the law of nature that says "whatever works is right."  The LCC is not my
glass of beer for lots of reasons, but if it works for you, then good for it.
 Just like Gerda and her masonry, which you couldn't pay me to join.  By the
same token, I don't expect everyone to be enthused about what I do.

We each find our own way around these things and gravitate to that which
suits us.
