Anand: "Scientists have little information about Mars."

In my last posting to Theos-Talk, I asked Anand a series of 
questions.  I first repeat the relevant part of my questions and then 
give the relevant part of Anand's reply.  To that I give additional 

I wrote:

Anand, do you believe that on Mars there are (to quote
Leadbeater) "forests and cultivated fields, and vegetation of all

Anand, do you yourself accept Leadbeater's statement that there are
Martians on Mars and "in physical appearance the Martians are not
unlike ourselves, except that they are considerably smaller"?

Do you really believe that some of these Martians "are blondes and
brunettes, some of the people having a faintly yellowish skin and
black hair, while the majority have yellow hair and blue or violet
eyes - somewhat Norwegian in appearance"?

Are you telling me that you believe that the Martians "are very fond
of flowers, of which there is a great variety, and their towns are
built on the general plan of the garden-city, the houses usually
being one-storeyed only, but built round inner courtyards and
straggling over a great deal of ground...."?

Anand, are you telling us that this description of Mars by Leadbeater
is true, accurate, factual, reliable and ..... REAL????

And Anand in his reply writes:

Scientists have little information about Mars. Leadbeater says that
there is only a strip of 100 miles which has inhabitants. That being
tiny part of Mars, it is quite possible that scientists have not yet
reached that area in their investigation.

I assume from Anand's reply that he indeed believes that Leadbeater's 
description is true, accurate, factual, reliable and real.

Furthermore, it would appear that Anand is saying that what 
Leadbeater writes about the Martians basically applies only to "a 
strip of 100 miles" on Mars.

I ask other interested readers to compare Leadbeater's clairvoyant 
description of Mars with what science has learned about Mars.  

The Wikipedia article on Mars is a good place to start but of course 
there are many new books and articles based on the latest findings 
concerning Mars.

In this instance I prefer the scientific understanding of Mars and 
regard Leadbeater's version as unreliable and wrong and a good 
example of what the 1900 KH letter describes as a "misleading mayavic 

But other readers will have to decide the issue for themselves.
