I have read the authors of the bible were under psychedelic substances?

Do you have any more information about it?
Every time I post this question, before I can even read the information provided it gets reported.
If you decide to report, because it is damaging for your belief, I will re post again. I have also closed this account to contacts, some religious people, I will let you guess which religion, likes to censure anything that PROVES their religion wrong.

I don’t know why but they keep reporting me too.
I have posted this information for them to verify.
They can read for themselves, the answer is YES.
There are literally HUNDREDS of books that talk about it, yet the Christians have decided to ignore the evidence.

In “The Mystery of Manna”, religious historian Dan Merkur provided compelling evidence that the miraculous bread that God fed the Israelites in the wilderness was psychedelic, made from bread containing ergot–the psychoactive fungus containing the same chemicals from which LSD is made. Many religious authorities over the centuries have secretly known the identity and experience of manna and have left a rich record of their involvement with this sacred substance.

This is another one that talks about the psychedelic substances used by the authors of the Bible.

This Book “Astrotheology and Shamanism: Unveiling the Law of Duality in Christianity and other Religions”
http://www.amazon.com/Astrotheology-Sham…
explores the hidden symbolism in religions and cultural traditions, analyzing the representation of celestial objects and hallucinogenic plants and their role in religious rites and traditions. The authors do an excellent job examining the symbolism of astrological ages and of the solar deities, such as Jesus/Christ. Clearly, Christianity is revealed as a distorted exoteric religious model which contains hidden vestiges of the esoteric shamanic wisdom and “pagan” traditions from which the new piscean age religion had been developed. The Christ character is exposed as non-historical, a composite of sun god symbolism and mushroom symbolism, and although the issue is not significantly addressed by these authors, I would suggest that the New Testament era Christ also includes aspects of multiple minor historical personages (initiates) whose historical background got woven into the timeless symbolic stories. This book contains a wealth of fascinating information and pictures and cuts through many religious secrets and deceptions.

These two books by “John Marco Alegro” are very interesting as well.

  1. The archaeological evidence (prior to my own study, of mushroom symbolism in pre-Columbian art), suggesting a pan-Mesoamerican mushroom religion was based primarily on my father’s research, Dr. Stephan F. de Borhegyi, of Maya mushroom stones and pottery mushrooms that were found in areas throughout Central America, and in particular the Olmec influenced Maya region ( Borhegyi, 1957, 1961, 1963). The native population of Mesoamerica prior to the arrival of the Spanish considered hallucinatory mushrooms to be holy and divine, compared to their modern status, particularly among North Americans, of being dangerous, offensive, and illegal. It is noteworthy that almost four centuries elapsed between Spanish chronicler Fray Sahagun’s description of narcotic mushroom rites and the rediscovery of this cultural phenomenon in the 1930’s. My intention in creating my research site at mushroomstone.com is to present convincing, never previously noted, visual evidence from the prehistoric art of the New World to the effect that mushrooms are not only frequently depicted in pre-Columbian art, but that in Mesoamerica in particular, hallucinogenic mushrooms played a major role in the development of indigenous religious practice and ideology. By bringing this encoded mushroom imagery to the attention of those who have an interest in this fascinating subject, by so doing, I hope to correct a lamentable gap in our knowledge and understanding of the past.

    Any one have any idea what graffitti artists were saying when they sprayed faces in the nativity scene black and painted a mushroom next to it?
