    and for the record, ive been to and studied all the major sects of christianity. they are far more similar than they are different. and frankly i find their quibbling over minutia trivial and full of superstition
    Huxley was a drug addict who thought he was able reach a spiritual plane by experimenting with hallucinogens and LSD. He also said he chose to not believe in God because it made it easier to not have to be moral.

    “I had motives for not wanting the world to have a meaning; and consequently assumed that it had none, and was able without any difficulty to find satisfying reasons for this assumption. The philosopher who finds no meaning in the world is not concerned exclusively with a problem in pure metaphysics. He is also concerned to prove that there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do. For myself, as no doubt for most of my friends, the philosophy of meaninglessness was essentially an instrument of liberation from a certain system of morality. We objected to the morality because it interfered with our sexual freedom. The supporters of this system claimed that it embodied the meaning - the Christian meaning, they insisted - of the world. There was one admirably simple method of confuting these people and justifying ourselves in our erotic revolt: we would deny that the world had any meaning whatever.” ― Aldous Huxley, Ends and Means


    Belief in a divine Being is accompanied by a sense of accountability to that Being. So, to escape the condemnation of conscience, which itself was created by God, some simply deny the existence of God. They tell themselves, “There is no overseer of the world. There is no Judgment Day. I can live as I please.” The moral pull of the conscience is thus more easily ignored.

    just curious, why do you say huxley was an addict? is it bc he used peyote in an experiment that he then documented in the book The Doors of Perception?
