RE: We suck as atheists
oh boy, those were the days!
During the hippie days I was an "acid guide". I'd stick around when people dropped acid and made sure they didn't have a bad trip. Which wasn't hard, when you notice them going on a bad thought sequence, you just change the subject of their thinking to something pleasant. That always worked, but I wouldn't recommend people drop acid without an experienced guide. People can slip into paranoia real easily, and then the guide becomes an enemy too and it's a really bad thing. A guide has to be on the ball....and know how to tell what's going on in the tripper's head.
I dropped a ton of acid in those days. It's not an addictive drug, there comes a time when it actually gets boring to do. It's super interesting in the beginning.
I have seen one person who couldn't tolerate it- he would not come down and stayed "spaced out". It just didn't ever wear off. We had to take him to get treatment... and I don't know whatever became of him.
Don't go dropping acid without a good guide who has been there many times him/herself, will stay sober for you and knows what to look for.

Acid-person: "Spiders! Spiders are crawling under my ski-"

Guide: "Bunny rabbits."

A-P: "Pretty bunny, wee!!"

A single action is worth more than the words it takes to describe it.

I don't know. I think I make a fairly average atheist. So I wouldn't say I suck. Consider

RE: We suck as atheists
A very important thing to remember is that while not addictive, LSD sucks the electrolytes and vitamins right out of your body; these quickly need to be replenished after a trip and I would even say during. Some things need sugar while some need protein so, fresh fruits & cheese along with a B12 complex is perfect or those fortified smoothie drinks will get the job done. Shit, I'd be willing to bet those drinks were probably concoctions created by former hippies!! Wink


I never, ever had a bad trip. And it feels really good to be with someone to talk them through it. I honestly think everyone should have the chance to be on either side of this experience at least once in their life. I think it can help people get into their ideas of trust and understanding and relating to others - it's quite a positive experience. Smile

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

RE: We suck as atheists




The effects of all drugs on consciousness should be more open to experiment by self consenting individuals.

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.
