also controversial for offering new ideasabout religion and science over their long careers.Hurtak’s detractors, like Galileo’s critics, havebasically the same complaint that Hurtak’s ideasappear at odds with the religious orthodoxy andworld view as if Scripture should be immune tointerpretation. In 1609 Galileo was determined notto be in violation of any laws but still he was heldto be at variance with Scripture a quasi crime if notan actual criminal offence. It wasn’t until about1632 that the Inquisition actually convicted him forheresy and punished him with house arrest.

Hurtak’s critics, fortunately, do not have theInquisition available but they do have the internetand Hurtak’s heresies are widely attacked withinquisitional passion if not inquisitional authority.How do you attack a Philosopher and Scholar?Philosophers and Scholars are idea people who tryto get you to look at things from anotherperspective. Scholars remind people not to forgetor ignore the past lest they repeat the mistakesand evils of the past. Scientists are engaged insimilar inquiry as they root out reality’s secretsusing their scientific method.Hurtak and other scholars throughout historyhave been forced to defend their ideas. OmarKhayyam, another philosopher/scientist, wassystematically attacked and ostracized by thepolitical and conservative religious establishmentfor trying to mathematically prove and rectify amathematically and astronomically correctcalendar.
