Aaahh... nice beat-around-the-bush answer Bart <she chuckles>.
Guess you just couldn't answer the question, uh? Hmmm... one then
has to wonder.... who IS the real bigot here, hum?
To get my point across, let me say this Bart... when I see your name
and words, my vision is thus, a man with a beard, wearing army
fatigues, an ammunision belt, holding a machining gun and a label on
his shirt that says 'Blavatsky Fundamentalist/Terrorist'. <g> Sign
of the times, huh? Maybe... just maybe, I got this view of you
because I only know bits and pieces of the whole gist of who you are
and what you represent. Now, you may be thinking this is totally
irrelevant, but ahhh, not really, my friend 'cause I want to know
EXACTLY who that person is that is interpreting anothers persons
words and thoughts and why I should believe them. Get the picture?
(Now I think I know why women don't post their thoughts here... they
are totally above all this pettiness and bickering. <she chuckles>)
Btw, for the record, I am not a HPB fundamentalist nor am I a AAB
fundamentalist... I do believe in fairness, and the telling of the
whole story and not just bits and pieces of the story. As the
subject line suggests (and, is the title of the AAB book)'Problems of
Humanity', any problem here is everyone's problem as a whole.
