Steve Stubbs' Assessment of the Testimony of Henry Olcott about the Mahatmas

". . . the only proof we can have of the masters' historical existence is testimony from a qualified witness, and we have that from Olcott. . . . Olcott's testimony is sufficient in my judgment to establish their corporeal existence as legal persons. . . . I cannot agree with anyone that they were fictions, fantasies, imagined beings, trance personalities, or any such thing as that unless the Olcott evidence can be satisfactorily disposed of.  I raised that question some time ago, and no one has ever addressed it, so for that reason I remain stubbornly convinced that the mahatmas were real men as they were claimed to be."  Bold added.  Quoted from:  Theos Talk message 5195
