If Jesus of Nazerath did exist, and did not die a physical death on some piece of wood, but died of old age in some country such as India, did the Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church dupe every…Continue

The use of hallusagenic mushrooms played a role in early Christian thought. John, "the loved disciple" of the crucified man that lives somewhere in Earth's atmosphere, wrote the book of Revelation on…Continue

"Once I learned that hallucinogens were in use in biblical times, I thought that explained a lot.  Certainly Revelation, but chunks of the old testament as well."

"Jesus of Nazerath is what the bible says of his birth place, but that town did not exist at the time he was supposed to have walked the earth There's archaeological evidence that Nazareth existed at the time of Jesus."

"I would love to believe such a thing, because crucifixion is abominably cruel.  The image of Jesus off studying with gurus in India is sweet.  But being soothing and sweet is one reason why it's so dubious. "

Luara replied to L. Alcorn's discussion Early Christianity
"There was so much suffering at the time, and suffering tends to make people hallucinate and become other-worldly.  And, the culture of the time was much more accepting of the supernatural. So if someone said things like Revelations nowadays, we…"

Hi -doing good - just unpacking and getting settled in.

I hope you have a nice weekend.

Yes, Your cat is lovely. I am doing very well, thank you for asking. Spent seven hours in the garden today and feel wonderful!

How about you? How are you feeling?

How about sending up some southern Indiana warmth? Yesterday, while it was 70 in your parts, it was only 50 here. Big disparity. I'm sick of it. How you doing? Find that house in the Hoosier Nat. Forest you're looking for?

At 8:46am on March 17, 2014, Randall Smith said…

Ah, a fellow Hoosier! I happened across your reference to growing bean sprouts. I am in the process of trying it for the first time, using soybeans. It's working. I'm just afraid to eat them--maybe it's the smell that turns me off. Any suggestions?

Thanks!  I imagine there are a lot of people with the same name.  I've only come across one other.  Still, there is probably a distant connection.

The beans sound good.  We are getting into gardening season here too.

Welcome to Nexus!

I wonder how many Alcorns there are?  My mothers' last name was Alcorn.  Scattered through her family tree there were multiple "George Washington Alcorn" and "John Rain Alcorn".  They migrated westward, I think from PA, and wound up in western Illinois.  Maybe they left a few relatives in Indiana!  Her uncle, I think, was Loren Alcorn. There are no relatives remaining who I am aware of.

Anyway, welcome again to Nexus.  Here you find many who are not tied to religious dogmas and fantasies.  Down to earth and friendly.
