Eldon good and reasoned response.
From what you say above, your aim is more than simply understand
something of what Theosophists may think. Your immediate comparison
of theosophical groups to the Flat Earth Society shows your hostility.
Many of us who have been exposed to theosophy have continued our
association (many for a long time) with others exposed to theosophy -
whether one is formally associated with a theosophical organization or not,
is, IMHO, due to three prime reasons -- (1) theosophy encourages inquiry
and (2) keeps an open mind while there may be many presentations and (3)
has changed the lives of many due to its doctrines and ideas presented. The
continued world-wide interest in theosophy after more than a century of
its modern founding, speaks for itself; even the existence of the
maillists -- which for all practical purposes are unmoderated -- is
ascribed to the fundamental strength of the ideas presented by theosophy.
Anyone who takes time to scan through the archives of this and other
theosophical maillists would find that the range of discussions is so wide
and civil and criticisms by responders are mild compared to what one will
find in many unmoderated maillists.
