Re: PAUL TWITCHELL REVEALED (via Imagination)
- Hi, Ingrid . . . and Rich!
Actually, I think what Rich submitted to be posted is
okay in that it gives us all an opportunity to look at
and consider Doug's new book and its promotion.
Also, I think it is fine for anyone who wants to read
this site, and I do mean anyone, and then decides to
send a post is okay as well. Of course, it is understood
that non-members' posts have to be approved as
Prometheus did approve Rich's post and then responded
While Rich considers Doug's book a thing of value, and
we obviously don't, there is that difference of opinion.
One can read the discussions on A.R.E. to see more of
what Rich has said about Doug's book there--Rich is
promoting it as a great piece of writing that helps to
substantiate and validate PT's created religion eckankar.
However, on ESA, we have the opposite and differing view.
You are correct, Ingrid, that this site doesn't debate with
eckists in general because debating does wear oneself
out--takes a lot of energy. But presenting a different
view point or information is okay at times--the reader
is always left to decide what seems reasonable and
of importance to him or her. No one can control a
another's thinking or influence another as long as the
reader holds on to and further develops his/her own
critical thinking skills! : )
p.s. Rich, thanks for sending in the link to Doug's site--
I'm going to check it out more later when I have more time
--for curiosity's sake! I did look at Doug's pic there
already. That was interesting to see what Doug looks
like, too! LOL!

come up with this nonsense. The point now is, Doug, you are the one who has taken Paul's
work and put it in the proper perspective. Thank you so much!
