Does Anand, Govert and Daniel believe in Koot Hoomi?

In September of last year, I wrote to Anand on
Theos-Talk starting my posting with the following:


I am going to try to see where the two of us agree and disagree.

I assume that both of us believe in the existence of the Master Koot
Hoomi. Am I right?

But it would appear that our beliefs differ significantly in many
other aspects concerning Theosophy.

Therefore this posting is Part 1 of a series of postings in which I
am going to try to ascertain where the two of us agree and disagree
and more importantly I will try to determine what our thinking
and reasoning on these issues are.

The rest of that posting to Anand can be found at:

As far as I know, Anand never responded to that posting
at least not in any detail.  Therefore I did not
pursue this line of thinking any further as I had originally hoped
to do.

So now that Govert has entered the "arena" so to speak,
I ask Anand once more and Govert the following:

Do the two of you believe in the existence of the Master Koot Hoomi?

Do the three of us believe in Koot Hoomi?

Richard Hodgson (basing his "findings" on Emma Coulomb's testimony 
and his own "research") stated his conclusions as follows:

"....Koot Hoomi is a FICTITIOUS personage....[and the] 
supposed "astral forms" of the Mahatmas were confederates of Madame 
Blavatsky in disguise --- generally the Coulombs....[The] alleged 
[occult] phenomena --- some of them in connection with the so-called 
Shrine at Adyar --- were ingenious trickeries, carried out by Madame 
Blavatsky, with the assistance chiefly of the Coulombs....I must 
express my unqualified opinion that NO GENUINE psychical phenomena 
WHATEVER will be found among the pseudo-mysteries of the Russian lady 
alias Koot Hoomi Lal Sing alias Mahatma Morya alias Madame Blavatsky."
caps added.

Do the two of you agree with Hodgson that Koot Hoomi is a fictitious, 
imaginary, non-existent person simply made up by H.P. Blavatsky as 
the "evidence" presented by both Emma Coulomb and Richard Hodgson 
would lead one to conclude???

And if you do not agree with Hodgson's conclusion and believe that 
Koot Hoomi is a real person, then what SPECIFIC evidence and 
reasoning convinces you of Koot Hoomi's existence?

I am trying to see if at least on this one point, the three of us can 
agree on something and I would like to sincerely know your views and 
as I said what convinces you that you conclusion is correct.

Later I will try to further the discussion by following up on some of 
the material about Mr. Sinnett's belief in Master KH as given in the 
above posting that I wrote to Anand back  in September.
