Historical correctness

A little further reflection.

I doubt we as a group will ever totally agree on what the historical
reality of theosophical origins are. It's just too charged a subject.

There will always be those who have reviewed various charges and also
read the answers presented against those charges and have concluded that
those charges have been sufficiently answered. Others will read the same
material and come away unimpressed by the answers.


Did O.J. Simpson commit murder?

Who killed John Kennedy?

Who really won the recent presidential election in Florida?

Each of these questions is a highly charged historical mystery. For some,
the questions remain open and for others the case has been closed. All
depends on mindset. And none of these questions involves anything
paranormal, spiritual, or otherwordly in the slightest.
Yet the questions we are presented with do involve belief/unbelief in
things beyond the material. Maybe we have to really be content to agree
to disagree.

Bill's recent posts reflecting on the Karmic ties within this group are
really something to ponder. There certainly does seem to be some threads
that bind us all. I had only heard about this discussion through some
crossposts to BN-Study, but for some reason felt compelled to be here.

One other thought and I'll quit my stream of consciousness rambling. I
found it helpful for everyone do share their background. Would it be
equally helpful to state a current mindset? Why are we here (on this
list) What do we hope to get out of it? What do we hope to accomplish
with what we contribute? Any takers?
