“Writing in the British journal Time and Mind, Benny Shanon of Jerusalem’s Hebrew University said two plants in the Sinai desert contain the same psychoactive molecules as those found in plants from which the powerful Amazonian hallucinogenic brew ayahuasca is prepared.
The thunder, lightning and blaring of a trumpet which the Book of Exodus says emanated from Mount Sinai could just have been the imaginings of a people in an “altered state of awareness”, Shanon hypothesised.
“In advanced forms of ayahuasca inebriation, the seeing of light is accompanied by profound religious and spiritual feelings,” Mr Shanon wrote.”

I knew it! The authors of the bible apparently, was on the “crack” of their day, when writing that stupid-ass book. To tell you the truth, this theory does not come as a surprise to me at all, because if you look at some of the insane things written in the bible (The following is an example):
“If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell” (Matthew 5:29-30).
(Because I’m definitely a bad person for thinking that a friend of mine’s girlfriend is beautiful)
You REALLY would expect the author to be smoking something extremely mind-altering. Like I write in my biography: “some of the things that’s written in the bible very often sounds like the writer was smoking too much marijuana, or whatever he might have been smoking! Think about it! If you’re sitting there smoking your marijuana, and writing a story, then the concept of a guy walking on water all of a sudden makes a lot of sense.”.
I seriously doubt people will ever come to realize what a load of bullshit the bible really is, my suggestion to anybody who owns a copy of it, is to use it as toilet paper and then burn it! Creative, aren’t I ?
