I agree on all this.
Sure, ordinary Science is ordinary science, but when an author call it theosophy, and tends to picture most theosophists as aggressive, I will have to disagree. Especially, when the content of important parts of the authors litterary output to such a degree - either conscious or unconscious is a nasty unjustified attack on H. P. Blavatsky and the theoosphical teachings. And when it is something already proven by others as you say.
When people parade as theosophical authors or promoters and fail to recognize the truth when it is proven to them - how on earth can they honestly claim to aim at creating a universal brotherhood when being a member of the forum Theosophical Network? That baffles me. On top of that some appearntly - special members - are disallowed being criticized.
If all authors at a theosophical group are allowed to claim they are theosophical no matter what kind of smearing and blunt lies they perform, where will such a theosophical group lead humanity?

I neither have time to write more about this case. Morten, I think you have good points, and many people agree with you that some of K. Paul Johnson's conclusions are too daring. Daniel and Govert, for example, have written well, supporting you. Just remember that science can't uncritically assume that all statements about the Masters in theosophical literature are automatically true. Historians have the right to speculate on more rational and more human reasons for events.
