I just finished watching this video The Pharmacratic Inquisition made by Jan Irvin and Andrew Rutajit, authors of the book, The Aquarius Initiation: Astrotheology & Shamanism - Revealing the Law of Duality in Christianity and Other Religions, and I have to say that it was well worth the three and half hours. The movie consists of two fellows standing beside a projection screen talking while they present visual aides. It covers a lot of topics, from the controversial origins of Christianity, to the idea that psychoactive substances were the basis of modern religions, and other diverse topics relating to the history of beliefs. Some of the authors cited are: Acharya S., R. Gordon Wasson, Terrence McKenna, James Arthur, John Allegro, among many others. It may be rehashed info for the more well versed, but they put it together smoothly and creatively all in one package, and the best part it's open source and free.

Get the Video HERE.

Below are some thumbnails from the film.

Thanks for that. I'll certainly be looking at it, especially since it covers R.Gordon Wasson and his work with psilocybin mushrooms.

If you could place those screenshots under a lj-cut please, that would be lovely. :)
