No evidence but the "will" to believe, plus fairy tale "stories."

      People like Dallas the Broek (Dalval) or Daniel Caldwell do is shower
      people with outdated Theosophical propaganda material. It is like with
      Jehovas Witnesses (have you ever seen someone try to get you to "look"
      at The Watchtower ?), well they know that once reading the stuff many
      people often do join. The same on this list, Dalval often answer a
      question with one sentence, but then slips half a book of literature in his
      post totally non-related to the subject, "here read this" and so does
      Caldwell just post tons of material ("just read this" the same material
      over and over) without ever answering a single question. Were is the
      proof the source of The Mahatma Letters is what Dalval and Caldwell
      suggest it is, including the (secondary) claim that they would be
      magically produced out of thin air.(Precipitated they call it among others,
      plus letters appeard from the ceiling and so on)
      The reading of a telegram from some mysterious and unnamed source
      ordering the re-appointment of Mrs. Kingsford to the Presidency of the
      London Lodge, closed for a time the rift in that body's ranks between the
      Hermetist and the Buddhist sections. Although the message came
      through "Koot Hoomi", a letter from him to the members declared it to
      be "the express wish of the Chohan himself" (M.L., P. 398).

      A month later the advice of the telegram was admitted to be
      an "unusual, not to say arbitrary interference with the reserved elective
      rights of a Branch" (M.L., P. 4o6), and a decision by ballot was
      recommended in its stead. Nevertheless, the precedent of the telegram
      was remembered and followed in a later crisis' when the Presidency of
      the parent society was involved. In 1908, Colonel Olcott, Madame
      Blavatsky's successor, lay paralysed and awaiting his end.
      The Master K.H. ,so we have it in the words of Annie Besant appeared
      at his bedside of Olcott and "ordered him to nominate me to the
      Presidency". This alleged visitation took place seven years after the
      death of Madame Blavatsky.
      One begins to see that there is scarcely a limit to what a mythical
      Master can do, so long as it is something that his credulous disciples can
      desire and believe.


      Another example promulgated on behalf of the Maha-Chohan at
      Kensington Town Hall on October 12, 1925, the that time President of
      the TS announced ; "In the realm of psychology, the doctrine of
      the "Seven Principles of Man". first educed with tortuous efforts from
      ancient Indian books, and passed on for publication to Mr. Sinnett in the
      flimsies of the 'eighties, finally became the stock-in trade of later
      teachers. Although the early Upanishads and philosophical Sutras of the
      Indians had speculated on the septenary doctrine for centuries"
      But it was not to them that Theosophists turned for support, but to the
      petty plagiarisms of the Letters, afterwards condensed into the shilling
      Manuals of Leadbeater, Annie Besant, and many others since.
      In regard to Theology, later Theosophical writers have followed the
      Mahatmas' lead into a stifling fog of contradictory metaphysics.
      Beginning as Buddhists, they denied God; continuing as Hindus, they
      affirmed Him as the Parabrahm of the Vedantins.

      Today (Nov.14, 2002 ) the TS also states,,, in the name of the Masters
      and by their orders, a Theosophical Liberal Catholic Church, in which
      they celebrate the Mass and recite the Apostles' Creed.
