I myself was raised catholic, but throughout junior high, as well as high school, I rode the fence between religion and science. I wanted to believe in evolution but I had this deep underlining feeling that God was real and I needed to defend and honor him. When topics of God and religion came up in GT classes, I was always on the defensive, tirelessly fighting against rational arguments. Then came college.
Freedom yet still some anxiety, went on a couple years until I found myself taking these "trips" once a month. But instantly after that first try, all those deep emotional feelings and obligations of god just melted away. I even tripped at a catholic mass once, a last ditch effort to become Christian again, thought I might see god and angels... Instead, an extremely scary and insufferable place, full of chants and rituals that made me think I was taking part in a cult. (Which I was... Lol)
I have read about such recreational activities relieving people of brain washings and certain psychological conditions. I'm just curious if anyone else has had similar experiences, and thoughts about if this is a possible cure for theists?
