For those who don't know, when the Dead Sea Scrolls were uncovered a team of theologians was put together to read through them and translate them. The Catholic Church itself sanctioned these men to do their work. One of the men, a theologian by the name of John M. Allegro read through the scrolls and instead of telling the Roman Catholic Church some made-up story about what they wanted to hear, Allegro published several findings about how he believed the Dead Sea Scrolls actually imply that Christianity was created all by the use of hallucinogenic mushrooms.

Allegro's own belief that (Jesus) Christ was a metaphor for a mushroom, the ultimate trip into a world of bliss. Allegro translated "Christ" from the word chrism which means ###### (seamen) anointing," this, Allegro inferred to believe that "Christ" came from the seeds (rain) that impregnated Mother Earth causing her child (the mushrooms) to go. 

The metaphorical context is all extremely interesting, I've been trying to acquire a copy of this book for a long time.

The discovery of the dead sea scrolls is interesting for me altogether, not just the hallucinogenic mushrooms part. The scrolls they found on 'cave 4' were actually said to explain the bible. Most of the things I read was discovered in the scrolls were related to a Jewish cult/religious group. I have my doubts to Allegro's belief that Christ actually means mushrooms. I'd like to read some of them at least ... but I doubt that'll happen unless I go to Canada. 

You can't choose what stays and what fades away.

He's wrong on the translator part, while you on the other hand are runarounding, but thats okay.

I'm pretty sure we've proved the Vikings got hopped up on mushrooms before battle which caused them to see these glorious visions of Valhalla and their own Gods, so I place no doubt in this theory either.

Just remembered someting, if that would be true, then Jesus would have ben a folklure, we have scrolls from the same location that tell otherwise.
