I’m a little surprised (OK, really surprised) that when I posted the video of my lecture on the Gospel of Judas Iscariot two days ago it didn’t generate more (a lot more) discussion on the blog. Not because of the lecture, but because of where I gave it, the Ramtha School of Enlightenment. I expected that to spark a lively response. It didn’t. And the most common response that I did receive (on the blog or privately) was some surprise that I would lend my name to such an institution to give them greater credibility.

So I should say something about that.

To start: a number of people asked me if I would have given the talk if had known that it was not the American School of Gnosticism but was, what it was, the Ramtha School of Enlightenment. I think the answer is probably no. I had never heard of the school before, or or Ramtha, or of JZ Knight. But given what is said about it on the internet, I would have said this is just too crazy by half, and I don’t want anything to do with it.

So I agreed to give the talk more or less out of ignorance. But when I did read up a bit on the school and its beliefs, I didn’t think about backing out. My view is that if my message is worth hearing among people who agree with me, it is worth hearing among people who disagree with me. Did I lend any credibility to the school by giving the talk there? I have two responses to that question.
