Isis Unveiled: chapter I (an axiom of hermetic philosophy)

“This method of calculating by the neroses, without allowing any consideration for the secrecy in which the ancient philosophers, who were exclusively of the sacerdotal order, held their knowledge, gave rise to the greatest errors.

 
It led the Jews, as well as some of the Christian Platonists, to maintain that the world would be destroyed at the end of six thousand years.

 
Gale shows how firmly this belief was rooted in the Jews. It has also led modern scientists to discredit entirely the hypothesis of the ancients. It has given rise to the formation of different religious sects, which, like the Adventists of our century, are always living in the expectation of the approaching destruction of the world.”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
