Hello Paulji teen and All,
Klemp gives PT's birthdate as Oct. 22, 1908
and we know his death (translation) was
September 17, 1971... or was that Sept.
19th... I forget?
Anyway, I think that we can all agree that
Twit did die and isn't still "living" somewhere
in Sedona, Az., or in the Outback... or Vegas
for that matter! LOL! Now, did Paulji reincarnate
as an ATOM-doer? Nah, I doubt that too!
Still, it's interesting that Klemp makes all of
those grandiose claims for the Mahanta (himself),
and, yet, is incapable of speaking to a former
Mahanta (Paul) on the "inner" in order to "know"
what the facts are!
HK even claims (on Eckankar.org) to have sent
a team of ECKists to India to do research on
Sudar Singh (aka. Kirpal Singh) who was,
supposedly, the 970th LEM! Why wouldn't
Klemp (the "Inner Master") be able to contact
Sudar on the "inner," as well as, Paul (Peddar)?
See, it doesn't make sense! This was just one
more nail in the EK coffin when I was a member.
It was more proof that Klemp wasn't delivering
on what he claimed to have powers over...
As to why you can't find Paul's death records...
I don't know, but Ford Johnson found them.
I had/have a copy of Paul's death certificate
that I copied from Ford's, now defunct,
General Data Base on the Truth-Seeker
site. But, I can't seem to locate it now. I,
do, have a copy of Paul's sister's (Kay-Dee)
death certificate and a copy of Paul and Gail's
marriage certificate. Maybe you'll have to
write or call Cincinnati's or Ohio's Vital
Statistics Records department and have
them mail you out a copy for John Paul
Twitchell, died 09/17/1971.
Didn't you say that you were there at that
seminar? What was that like? What did your
parents say about it? Did you see and speak
to Tom Flamma or Anya Foos? I wonder what
she's doing now? BTW-I can't remember when
Tom Flamma translated... does anyone know?
Re: And Why Doesn't the M/LEM "Know" More About PT?
According to Wikipedia, Paul Twitchell was born "John
Paul Twitchell", so I went back to the SSDI to see if there
is a listing for a John P. or John Paul Twitchell. John P
turned up nothing. John Twitchell turned up 16 listings,
none of which matched our Paul.
I wonder why Paul isn't listed in the death records...?
