Bill,I don't think anyone is pretending. These are significant issues that
each person has the right and obligation to determine for themselves.
Anything less, will eventually create another religious heirarchy where
the "leaders" will do the thinking for the "followers." It is the
easy road to accept others conclusions and fit them comfortably into
one's world view. It is the path of least resistance and the one most
travelled. As an example, Bruce recently caused me to begin testing and
verifying my own previous comfortable thinking concerning the holocaust.
Previously, I had mistaken others opinions for facts. Now, I am
looking for the evidence myself.
H. S. Olcott, H. P. Blavatsky, every theosophist in the 19th century, and Vernon Harrison and other SPR members in the late 20th century have said loud and clear that Soloviof's and Coulombs's accusations against HPB were, and are, FALSE.
So, why pretend they "may be true"?
As much as I find myself at odds with Daniel's methods, personally
preferring those of Morten, Bruce, or Eldon, I see that their
intentions are generally the same: To wake people up from their
group-think positions and DEMAND that they think for themselves. In my
opinion, it is not theosophically possible to hold the right position
for the wrong reasons. The wrong reasons always include reliance on
someone else's hard work. We each must do our own hard work, writing
our own Secret Doctrine in the process. That is the essence of
theosophy as I understand it.
Give your brothers a break.
