Not wrong, but unnecessary. Mushrooms are simply a tool which can be used for good or bad.

worship? depends what you mean.,

i find if i aproach the mushrooms as a sacred teacher, a divine source of wisdom, a spirit if not a god, then the trip itself has a far more spiritual feel to it and there is far more revelation going on.

i even pray to the shroom whenever i dose. i dont worship it in the monotheistic sense tho,

Worship the quality of your shoes and rays of the Sun, not some fungus with interesting toxic qualities.

Teonan?catl is Nahuat for "Flesh of God(s)."
It was the name given to psilocybian mushrooms by the indigenous people of Mexico.

When the Spanish came to conquer the new world they were appalled by the religion of the Aztecs with its bloodthirsty human sacrifices. In many ways the Aztec religion was the antithesis of the Catholic Christianity of the conquerors. A central tenet of Catholicism is the doctrine of the real presence of the Body and blood of Christ in the Eucharist. Catholic Christians believe that during the Mass when the priest blesses the bread and wine it actually becomes the body and blood of Jesus who is the incarnation of God. When the priest then distributes communion to the faithful he tells them what it is; "The Body of Christ." The faithful reply "Amen" indicating they believe this to be true. When the Spaniards learned that these human sacrificing Aztecs were referring to the Mushroom with the same title given to the Christian sacrament they saw it as the worst type of sacrilege and made its use illegal, punishable by death. I suppose you could say the war on drugs started in 1500AD with the the outlawing of the mushroom.

Back to the question. "Is it wrong to worship mushrooms?"

Yes, it's wrong; the mushroom is not God.

Now I'm sure the pantheist will jump in here and say that everything is God, well if you believe that then go ahead, but don't forget to also worship the pile of shit from which it is growing.

When I read Paul Stamets' "Psilocybin Mushrooms of the World" I came across a certain paragraph where he talks about how he likes to 'caress the mushroom' and compliment it on it's 'beautiful form' or something like that. When I read that my initial reaction was, 'dude, this guy is a crackpot', but I have respect for Paul Stamets work so he's obviously not a total crackpot. I think worshiping the mushroom is, in a sense, worshiping the messenger. Is it not more fitting to worship of the author of the message?

In my mind I havent even thought of worshipping the mushroom. Its just a mushroom. But with natural, mind tripping powers.

It's not wrong to worship mushrooms--it's merely stupid.

See the mushrooms as an eternal key.

Would you worship the key or the door way it leads?
