Keith: I get the general drift. Yes, it would be a good idea to kindly
state references when they would be helpful or if someone requests them.
Some would want only a scholarly type of debate ie. HPB said this on page
... of the SD and I am standing by it etc.
Yet, like I said in the Proem she say clearly not to accept her words, but
to test it for oneself in a "scientific" type of manner. I believe this is
the only way possible for the modern person. Accepting things on faith or
based on "AUTHORITY" and finding them ridiculous, is what got mey interested
in theosophy. By the way the kabalah stuff is from the Bnei Baruch website.
I understand they are Russian kabbalists that are now living in Israel.

the page :) >) CHESHIRE :)
