And every intrested mind, with integrity, should also be able to
challenge the testimony of "Masters of Wisdom" - including their claims
to be such - and ask for evidence to support their claims.  Why? -
because there is no religion higher than truth.

But - as Pilate is quoted as saying - what is truth?

In other words, if we are asked to accept a teaching, we should have
the right to apply the scientific method and ask for the evidence and
experiential methodology to verify it for ourselves, and even, perhaps,
to discover new things.

.... and what do the "Mistresses of the Wisdom" have to say?
Ashtaroth was around long before "Jehovah" became fashionable!

Methinks we need "third object" training for some of this!
