Originally, The Pope was a magic mushroom worshiper. Zionists and whoever else took it over and perverted it. These mushrooms are at the root of many religions, including early Christianity. The mushroom was seen as the gateway to understanding God.
It is possible that magic mushrooms were a key factor in the birth and development of Christianity (maybe even a driving force), but this idea is still within the realm of speculation. But that would be pretty awesome if true.
the mushroom and its powers were a secret, so they had to be written down in the form of codes hidden in stories. This is the basic origin of the stories of the New Testament. They could've been a literary device to spread the rites of mushroom worship to the faithful.
The fresco in 13th century chapel in France clearly shows Adam and Eve next to a tree made of large Amanita muscaria mushrooms. The serpent can be seen coiling around the tree. It seems strange that this mushroom would be depicted in arguably the most famous story in the Bible.
The fruit which Adam and Eve ate from was a symbol for a psychedelic mushroom since it gave them “knowledge” (e.g. that they were naked) which they didn’t previously have.
Evidence of Mushrooms in Judeo-Christianity. For example, a 16th century Christian text called The Epistle to the Renegade Bishops explicitly mentions and discusses “the holy mushroom”.
examples of mushrooms in Christian art:
it’s not such a controversial idea that religions could be based on the use of psychedelic plants and then perverted into something more sinister. It’s been said that other ancient cultures have used psychedelic plants as well in their religious rituals.
In Book 9 of the classic Hindu text, the Rig Veda, a “pressed juice” called Soma is mentioned as something drunk by priests. Some sort of visionary state is reported:
“Make me immortal in that realm where happiness and transports, where joys and felicities combine, and longing wishes are fulfilled.”

Some say that Soma could have been a psychedelic mushroom, maybe the Amanita mushroom –
A more likely candidate for Soma, due to its better efficacy at inducing psychedelic states, is the Psilocybe cubensis mushroom. This mushroom can grow in cow dung in certain climates, which may explain why the cow has gained such a sacred status in the Hindu tradition.
However, others claim that Soma was cannabis. In addition, the blue lotus flower was worshipped by the ancient Egyptians and it is now known to have some psychoactive properties.
The Eleusinian Mysteries were initiation ceremonies held every year for the cult of Demeter and Persephone in ancient Greece. A drink called kykeon was consumed which the Illiad says was made up of barley, water, herbs and goats cheese.
In the Odyssey, however, the character Circe adds a magic potion to it. Some speculate that the barley used in this drink was parasitized by ergot (a fungus) and that the psychoactive properties were responsible for the intense experiences that people reported at Eleusis.
Ergot contains ergotamine, a precursor to LSD – this is why Albert Hoffman used ergot to synthesise LSD.

‘Mushroom cults’ in Mesoamerica date back to at least 1,000 BC, indicated by mushroom stone effigies found in the Guatemalan highlands.
In addition, frescoes from central Mexico dated to 300 AD show signs of mushroom worship. ‘Sacred mushrooms’ feature in Aztec texts as well – the Codex Vindobonensis, for example, visually depicts the ceremonial use of psychedelic mushrooms.
The Aztecs called these mushrooms teonanactl which literally means “flesh of the gods”. Christianity is just one more example of a religion which at its core involves the use of psychedelic plants as way to access the divine.
Mushroom statues indicate the presence of ‘mushroom cults’ in ancient Mesoamerica.
