ya I was gonna say, sounds like youve been reading Mckenna. I really like the whole ufo/ alien contact idea, but Ive never seen a ufo or contacted the Logos, or aliens or anything. I do see birds, trees, leaves and fractals. Also, once a huge mysterious machine, which I found out later is a common mushroom archetype.
The books of every religion record miracles of healing, and other great powers, worked by God or the prophets. The belief in that power underlies and upholds the religion. And the modern-day theologians don't have that power. And they look at science, with doctors who can heal the sick, and physicists who can destroy cities, and engineers who can put people on the Moon, and they see science as a competing religion. Hence the conflict. And yet, there's no such thing as science. Knowing how to make an atom bomb is absolutely no different from knowing how to drop a rock, and it is nothing more to marvel at.
