Hi Paul (and Mark) -
You're absolutely right. Besides David Hatcher Childress's operations in Katmandu, you also have Doug Kenyon and his Atlantis Rising magazine part of this ring. Think Falwell's "Moral Majority" had bad effects? Imagine the effects on BJP/National Party politics in a nation of over a billion population armed with nuclear weapons. A "minority" of a billion is a large number. (Mark, you're absolutely right about the money.)
Of course "theosophism" was simply an attempt to wed re-incarnation with western religions, so its a natural fit.
As for the current confusion, Sterling, do you want to tell Paul about the Apollo film stock again?
Paul, if we could only agree on the comet impacts at the YD, and the total cometary impact threat as easily.

> For example, this web page states:
> "The Vedic account of our planetary system is
> already researched, concluded, and perfect. The
> Vedas state that the moon is 800,000 miles
> farther from the earth than the sun. Therefore,
> even if we accept the modern calculation of 93

> the sun, how could the "astronauts" have traveled
> to the moon-a distance of almost 94 million miles-
> in only 91 hours (the alleged elapsed time of the
> Apollo 11 moon trip)?"
> Further down it, the above web page states:
> "Another important reason why the manned moon
> landing must be a hoax is that, according to the
> Vedas, each planet has its particular standard of living
> and atmosphere, and no one can transfer from one
> planet to another without becoming properly qualified.
> This means that if someone wants to go to Mars, for
> instance, he has to give up his present gross material
> body and acquire another one suitable for life on
> that particular planet."
> Other revealing web pages are:
> The Apollo Moon Landings are Science Fiction
> The Moon Missions: Oh Ye of Little Faith
> Moon Mission Web Pages
> As in case of the antievolution fervor of various Young and Old
> creationists, I personally suspect that a significant force behind
> the arguments behind the claims that the Moon Landings were
> a hoax is a religious one. I also suspect that unlike the creationist
> antievolutionists, the promoters of the Moon Landing hoax have
> been for the most part, but not always, been careful to hide their
> religious motivations behind seemingly secular web sites. Of
> course as in case of antievolution, there are also a number of
> conspiracy fans, who for purely secular, nonreligious reasons,
> advocate and promote the fiction about there having been a
> Moon Landing hoax.
