Yeah, I did LSD, too, Sammy. But I threw away all my drawings and writings from that period in my life after I experienced the living God on a perfectly drug-free day and spent the next six years intensely searching for answers to who this God truly was. And he showed up again and again, as plainly as the stupidity on your face. (I see you.)
This search brought me into a monastery and into a degree of contemplation that demanded the purest mind and body I could muster.
It seems polluting yourself with drugs, and steering your children in that direction, is your answer to living a profound life.
Any time you wish to debate me, someone who has actually met God in a way you have never witnessed before (you know, the St. Francis and Paul of Tarsus way), set it up. I am no religious fool. In fact, I am not religious in the least. I have an understanding and a knowledge of God given to me by God himself. It will be God, the Holy Spirit, who will come along, too. I don’t think you’ve met him on a profound level as of yet.
You and your friends like Bill Maher look to the fringes of religion to find support for your atheism and for people to debate. No wonder you only find crusty bread and over-cooked meat. Meet me in the middle and then see how firmly you can stand your ground. Who knows, you may be able to actually sell some books.
Oh, and don’t worry about my credentials, for I know you value human learning. I, too, have a philosophy degree and an advanced degree.
