When the alleged "spiritual sciences" produce something as useful, life-changing, life-saving, and enduring as the physical sciences have in the short time they have been active on the earth then you might have something to crow about.
Helena P. Blavatsky! Great guns. The depths of that woman's nonsense knows no bounds. "Divine wisdom" my patootie.
