ANCIENT teachings can be shown to be more scientific despite the attacks of sectarianism, or materialism miscalled Science.
In reality science and religion are responsible for numerous illogical theories offered to the world.
The general public, blindly accepting everything that emanates from these two accepted authorities as a proven fact, is taught to scoff at anything brought forward from spiritual or ancient occult sources.
But even great authorities, especially modern science, may often err, and their too frequent sophism of scientific dicta may be incorrect. They are against intuition and the experience of the ages, and assume that Truth is the property of their exclusive isolated world.
Theosophy consistently contrasts “the laboriously acquired knowledge of the senses with the intuitive omniscience of the Spiritual divine Soul.”
As Hermes believed so does Theosophy, says H. P. Blavatsky, that “knowledge differs from sense which is only of the physical world—”but Knowledge is the end of sense which is only the illusion of our physical brain and its intellect.” In “Is Theosophy a Religion” she wrote:
“Practical Theosophy is not one Science, but embraces every science in life, moral and physical.”

Thank you for this post. It is disheartening to see how far we have to go, how the world is so in the dark, doggedly fighting over untruths or at best partial ones! The Light of Theodophy so needed, no matter how derided and refuted…waiting patiently for us to Wake Up…and to see the profoundly ignorant ideas some our congressmen are working with, downright insulting , yet some very same ones assigned to committees overseeing, leading committees who’s focus is entirely on the Scientific! What a long hard climb…NAMASTE ALL…
Yes, thanks Monica. It appears the contrast of darkness and light is strengthening – an it may portend that a breakthrough is coming soon, where the momentum shifts back to Nature…. Namaste!!
I truly do not believe that the world will end in 2012 based on what Don Yeomans, manager of NASA’s Near-Earth Object program announced awhile back. He stated that there is no planetary alignment on December 21, 2012 and that even if there were a planetary alignment then, it would not cause problems. There are worse things that could devastate the earth and Dec 21 2012 is not one of them. For the problems that would affect us – we will hear about them in the news as we have in the past and know that Nasa is looking out for them. I base my knowledge on scientific fact and not rumors. I do not hear NASA spinning tales of fear and doom so I know that this is just a Hollywood hype.
Good reminder about the limittions of materialism. Thanks.
Thanks Joan, good to hear from you!
