    I'm googling it and either it's too late for me to be googling it because my brain is asleep or it's just WEIRD and confusing. I've found a few things about it but wondered if anyone knew anything about it.

    Man, Christianity is SO much easier!

    What I read was certainly weird and confusing. I was thinking the same thing as you. That stuff is too complicated. I can't figure it out. I'm so glad that God has made it simple for us to understand.

    well, I have an opinion about this, just not sure what to say, ever have those moments?
    this sounds about as anti christian as you can get, certainly a 'religion' of satan, make people think they have evolved past the need for antiquated Christianity. The world ahs bencome more modern, man has become more modern, religion should too. yep, satan alright.

    I knew some Anthroposophists in Atlanta when I was in the New Age. In fact, my son attended a pre-school taught by a woman who was in the local Anthroposophical Society.

    It was founded by Rudolph Steiner (Rev Mitchell posted some info on this), who had been in the Theosophical Society (a group founded by Mme. Blavatsky and largely based on Hindu beliefs along with other stuff mixed in). He left the Theosophical Society and started this group.

    I would describe Anthroposophy as an early forerunner to the modern New Age Movement, mixed in with a gnostic form of Christianity. Some of its beliefs seeped into the New Age. The New Age has a lot of gnostic roots, as well as Eastern ones.

    Steiner had a philosophy about education and the Walden Schools were founded on his beliefs. These schools exist in the U.S. and there are quite a few of them.
