THEOSOPHISTRY AND FALSEHOODS

Jul 26, 2006 07:59 AM

Friends,

If one does not play with words and does not use Sophistry tactics, it is clear that contacts between the theosophical movement and the Masters in the period 1875-1891 cannot be described (as Daniel did) by  saying that "HPB claimed to have contact with Masters".   

If anyone who studied History writes that, this person is saying a LIE in disguised form.  This is because the evidence of contacts with Masters was  independent from HPB and included DOZENS of persons, in a public way. 

Among them Damodar, A. P. Sinnett, H. Olcott, Mohini, the Gordons, Subba Row, F. Hartmann, Mohini, Ms. Holloway, Countess of Wachtmeister, Isabel Cooper, Laura Cooper and many others. 

Researchers have respect for facts.  

Best regards,  Carlos.
