As far as I am able to search Tom has never commented on Blavatsky.
You cannot search inside a fireside chat since it is in a video, you will have to listen through it to find it. I'm 100% sure Tom did discuss Blavatsky & the Theosofy movement. However I don't remember exactly what was said, I will continue to try to find it and post it here if I do.
As far as I can tell they are just making all this stuff up. There is no scientific evidence to back up anything that they are saying. And also this completely ignores scientific evidence that first man was African.
HP Blavatsky says that she did not write any of her books herself, instead she stated that they were channeled from entities, adepts & masters from Tibet that she visited earlier in her life, and from the astral plane/akashic records.
So this really smacks of racism. No where is the black African man mentioned at the beginning. It's all the white race as far as I can see.
No, not at all. There's nothing racists in her books. Blavatsky claimed that all of man today is part of the same race, the aryan race, that consist of subraces. She does critisize all religions, not just Jewish religion.
And also to answer about how do we know man evolved from apes. Man didn't evolve from apes.
I think you misinterpreted what I wrote, in the documentary they claim apes evolved (or rather de-evolved) from man, and not the other way around.
And we know this from a history of fossilized bones. This is science not belief.
Do you know that for sure, or have you just decided to believe it to be true. And are there no incentive to lie about our history? Should we just accept what "the scientists" tell us. I don't believe in what is said in the documentary, I'm open to the possibility that it could be true (or parts of it). If it is true or not I will never know, but if Thomas Campbell really do talk positively about Blavatsky the chance of it being true rise dramatically in my mind (since I have his judgement in high regard).
Blavatsky is like a lot of other people who saw glimpses into a larger reality. But not able to really explore that larger reality she really grasp at ideas to try and explain reality. And she fell short of coming up with any kind of TOE. It seem to me that she keep struggling with ideas that don't quite lead to the Larger Consciousness System. And also she came from a purely PMR point of view that in the end crippled her understandings.
Do you really know the was not able to explore the larger reality? She did in fact travel to Tibet to learn about buddism, back in the 1800's, how can you be so sure?
Did Blavatsky even trie to create a TOE? Where did you get that idea? Have you read hear books or researched her history?
The book has also been accused of antisemitism and criticized for its emphasis on race. Historian Hannah Newman has noted that the book "denigrates the Jewish faith as harmful to human spirituality". Historian Michael Marrus has written that Blavatsky's racial ideas "could be easily misused" and that her book had helped to foster antisemitism in Germany during World War II.
Yes, does anybody who criticize the jewish religion not get called antisemite, seems to be standard practice does it not? She also criticized Islam, the Cahtolic church, Jesuits. So no wonder she was accused of this and that. If you actually read her books you will find out there's no rasism or antisemitism, just criticism.
