Food of the Goddess: The Entheogenic Theory of Religion

This presentation will begin by discussing psychedelic plants (psilocybic mushrooms, mescaline cacti, ergot extract, ayahuasca, cannabis, etc.), how they affect the human brain, what psychedelic experiences are like, and the effects they can have on people. The second half will explain the entheogenic theory of religion, a somewhat speculative explanation of how we changed from shamanic, egalitarian, peaceful goddess worshippers to patriarchal, warmongering, religious dogmatists after the development of agriculture.
