    I watched Graham Hancocks video on TED and I have to say his description of Ayahuasca scared me. I began exploring spirituality/philosophy about a year ago as I wanted to find something to believe in/meaning in life. Religion always turned me off as it promotes fear and judgement. The idea of a Devil tempting us/waiting for us after death seems stupid, frightening and irresponsible to me. Graham seemed to declare that The Devil is real and that taking Ayahuasca will tell if you are headed towards heaven or hell? Maybe I have misinterpreted his talk?

    This is a very good point. Even God says to Neale that it will take a few hundred or thousand years before people see the CWG series as credible. Religious people get very touchy about when others speak of God in a spiritual sense. The fact is this is fear. No one wants the whole concept of what they believe life is about to be challenged. I know myself that I become very sensitive even defensive when people challenge my beliefs. This is something I am working on. Its that fear of losing faith in what you believe in, when you lose faith, you lose hope and who wants to feel hopeless. That’s why people come together and form religions so they can be reassured by one another that what they believe is true. It takes courage to hold onto your beliefs amidst those with opposing views. To not need anyone to reassure you that you are right.
