"And don't tell the Romans and Greeks they were 'wrong'. They were just as 'right' as xtians or muslims or any other flavor of religion is today! It's all make believe!."- tele
Make believe? It is an attempt to make logic of stuff there is no logical explanation of. Someone fits the pieces together and comes to a different conclusion." - lowstudent


All religions evolved out of near death experiences, death bed visions, mystical and transcendental experiences, and hallucinogenic - psyllocybin mushroom - ergot from rye experiences.

Near Death experiences are nothing new. Plato talked about one in his book "The Republic" about a soldier "Er" who had been dead for 10 days and then woke up talking about where he had been and what he had been and what he saw. It was a typical NDE experience.

Religions have a kernel of truth to them that became highly embellished and out of sequence and what we see two thousand years later is this religion that if you look between the lines that original story is still there.
