I never said that HBP was right and "science was wrong" that is a
complete misreading of and misrepresentation of what I said, what I
did say was :
"While the theory put forward may not be correct in view of modern
science, in my understanding it would not constitute as being fraud.
I am sure that there are other examples in HPB's writings of ideas
that may be untenable according to modern scientific theories and
Quite the opposite of what you suggest !
As said in the article by J. Michael McBride "Unknowingly the Occult
Chemists left quantitative evidence suggesting that, from the
beginning, at least Leadbeater or Jinarajadasa, and perhaps Besant or
all three, cynically intended to deceive."
As stated before deliberate deception and dishonesty are quite
different to simply being wrong.
