Subject: An Appeal to "redrosarian" (MNS) & others about comments
on Brigitte M.
MNS, you wrote to Paul Johnson:
"Although Brigitte has been extremely anti-Blavatsky, that hasn't
changed my opinion of HPB. Her opinions carry very little weight
considering her reputation as a biased, narrow-minded historian."
MNS, could all of us try to focus on the historical issues rather
than the personal issues? Whether Brigitte M. is or is not what you
say she is, the historical material she brings up is worthy of
For example, the material Brigitte M. brings up at:
is worth considering. The cases she mentions are historical material
that was published before Brigitte was even born. Brigitte's
apparent view about Olcott's credulity, etc. are issues that were
discussed even during Blavatsky's lifetime. A thoughtful inquirer
would want to carefully study and think about these things before
accepting or rejecting the theosophical claims.
Let us all drop the ad hominem comments as much as humanly possible
and instead focus on the issues that are there regardless of the
person who brings them to the table to discuss.
