Shrooms Are Like God

The Independent is reporting that researchers at Johns Hopkins University have demonstrated that there is no difference between drug-induced mystical experiences and spontaneous religious experiences.

In more than 60 per cent of cases the experience qualified as a "full mystical experience" based on established psychological scales, the researchers say. Some likened it to the importance of the birth of their first child or the death of a parent.
