I think that when a small child is brainwashed with the concept of spirituality it is almost impossible for them to think any differently.
Any knowledge that contradicts this belief that they have been brainwashed with seems wrong to them because they think they know the truth.
I guess, the fact that they have been brainwashed with the concept of spirituality and also brainwashed into believing that anyone telling them any different is a liar is the cause.
"Why is it so hard for people to believe in Jesus Christ?"
If you ask me, because over the last 2000 years, so many things have been said and done about it. People have been murdered, abused, lies...
More than anything, I believe that there is a lot of confusion out there. Every church claims to be "the one who has it right" and people are just sick of it.

That is God's responsibility, not mine.

I do believe that smoking, or ingesting marijuana has led me to be more spiritual. Not, however has it been the sole contributor. I see life quite a lot different over the years, and I see humans in need of change. People all to often need to be led, because without guidance from an external...
