whats with people becoming christians
    #1071503 - 11/20/02 09:58 PM (14 years, 21 days ago)

what the hell is with people taking LSD or shrooms or just doing alot of misc. drugs and becoming bible thumpers? my friend has recently devoted his life to god, and has a giant poster of jesus in his room (its like 3 feet wide by about 7 feet tall). last few times i talked to him he starts talking about god and jesus, etc and the last time i talked to him he started reciting quotes from the bible. i had to hang up on him. plus he;s got this little shrine thing going in front of the poster with candles, his fancy leather bible (looks nice actually, not those cheap ass ones they give you in school). plus ive read trip reports of people suddenly becoming religious. any thoughts on this?
i went to a catholic school until grade 8, then switched to non religious public schools. i always felt that the teachers were brainwashing the students, personally i think god is a load of crap myself.

also this friend has only done LSD a few times and shrooms a few times. some pot, and barely any alcohol. as of right now he is somewhere in australia on some sort of jesus quest thing. we both live in canada. this "change" happened within a few days right after we ate 6 grams of homegrown equador shrooms.

I think that sort of thing happens to people who can't cope with having control over their own lives, so they suddenly relinquish control to "God" and sit back and enjoy the ride.. not my kind of ride thanks.

It's easy to see why it happens. When you trip, you sometimes look up at the stars and feel like there's really something up there, and you're on the same level and communicating with Him. That's all nice, but not for me.

One time me and this christian chick smoked some DMT, it destroyed her entire religious belief and was depressed that she wasted so much time with christianity. She never called me back though.

As long as I can remember I never believed in god, and as I got older christianity seemed more ridiculous and is a big crock of shit. After doing mushrooms and LSD, it really enforeced that christians are wasting their time praying to something that doesn't exist.

I think the problem might be that they're fucking stupid.

this happened to an old friend of mine after he was found naked sleeping in someone's driveway 3 days after eating a bunch of datura.

Maybe it's because of fear. If they have a trip, and become scared of death, they might become Christian so they will have the self-assurance that Jesus will save their souls. I don't believe in it, but who am I to say if there's a God or not? :smile:

I've seen it several times in people who used drugs destructively. They're looking for help in drugs and they're looking for help in religion.

Hope they find it someday, the sorry bastards!

Maybe if God turned out to have a nice big pair of tits and a hot ass, i'd feel differently, but I think the religious nuts should be jetisoned into space, after they are shit upon, of course. There's one fuckin' God show on my system on weekends where this dickless jesus wad eater touches people on their foreheads and they collapse to the floor, like retarted turd bacteria. Amazingly the venue that this shit is going on in is filled to capacity. What the fuck, how fucking stupid are people, what fuckin' conformity, no questioning of anything, fuck, fuck, fuck. I wish there was a turd buffet where I could go into, where Christians are strapped down, and onto which I can release steaming corn turds.
