The gathering was a religious gathering of 6000 Christians. They
recognized Him (IN THEIR HEARTS!!!) as Jesus (Christ). They weren't
looking at the color of His skin or whatever. They knew it in their hearts
and were proclaiming it.
Later, Ben confirmed that the man, in fact, was Maitreya. And many stories
since and after have corresponded to this, apart from Ben. The people in
the crowd did not know Him as Maitreya, which is His personal name. They
recognized him as Christ (or Jesus). People from other faiths have
believed Him to be Krishna, or the Imam Mahdi or whatever is their
representative. They see Him as their Divine Representative.
I note a specific air of condescension in your letters Bart. If you're
really not serious about it, or you feel you need to work your karma out on
me, then I would prefer we just drop it and change the subject.
It is sometimes difficult to contain all of the details of a story, that
has stretched over 20 years, in the span of one or two e-mails. There
will, of course, appear to be inconsistencies. It takes effort to search
out all the details and get the full picture. It is true that this story
*could* turn out to be a billion different "what-ifs". If you are simply
bent on pouring out streams of suspicion and speculation without *really*
looking into it then what is your point? Please save your energy.
