the books I had read about Alantis and the other lost continents being true

HPB was wrong and he was giving a talk on that at next meeting he had. The
members newsletter put me in touch with the New Zealand theosophy society
groups newsletter of scientists, put out by Hugh Murdock. The last
newsletter was an attempt by them to sort out the age of man and plate
tectonics. It was to reconcile theosophy with science and present a unified
front. There is slow change at Adyar.
