THE PHARMACRATIC INQUISITION


Fly Agaric Amanita Muscaria mushroomI've been waiting for the right time to post this amazing monumental presentation regarding the occult and esoteric pagan history behind religious symbolism in relation to Jesus and Sun cycles, amanita muscaria mushroom (fly agaric) and the divine experiences of altered states of consciousness through entheogenic drugs. Happy Holidaze...

Thousands of years ago, in the pre monarchic era, psychedelic/entheogenic substances where publicly known world wide and were respected for their ability to bring forth the divine, Yahweh, God, The Great Spirit, etc., by the many cultures who used them. Often the entire tribe or community would partake in the entheogenic rites. These rites were often used in initiation into adulthood, for healing, to help guide the community in the decision process, and to bring the direct religious experience to anyone seeking it, that might take these psychedelic sacraments properly.

In the pre literate world, the knowledge of psychedelic plant sacraments, as well as fertility rites and astronomical knowledge surrounding the sun, stars, and zodiac, known as astrotheology, were anthropomorphized into human/god like beings so their stories and practices could be passed down for generations. Weather changes over millenniums caused environmental changes that altered the available foods and plant sacraments available in the local vicinity. If a tribe lost its shamanic El-der (El - God), all of the tribe's knowledge of their plant sacraments as well as astronomical knowledge would be lost.

Genetic Engineering Human-Cow Embryos


Human-CowIn an attempt to create cheap and safe stem cells, several researchers applied yesterday to mix human cells with rabbit, goat and cow eggs.

Researchers hope that the radical technique will offer them the chance to avoid using human eggs.

Scientists believe that the resulting hybrid embryos would be 99.9 per cent human and 0.1 per cent animal, and that the experimental embryos would be destroyed before they turned 14 days old.

However opponents of stem cell research labeled the human-cow hybrid plan “abhorrent.”

British laws prevent scientists combining human and animal eggs or sperm, but there have been exceptions in the past.

The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority will assess the applications.

Plan to create human-cow embryos
By Fergus Walsh - BBC News, Medical correspondent

The Newcastle team is pioneering stem cell workUK scientists have applied for permission to create embryos by fusing human DNA with cow eggs.

Researchers from Newcastle University and Kings College, London, have asked the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority for a three-year licence.

The hybrid human-bovine embryos would be used for stem cell research and would not be allowed to develop for more than a few days.

But critics say it is unethical and potentially dangerous.

Liberal Democrat MP Dr Evan Harris - a member of the Commons Science and Technology Select Committee - said: "If human benefit can be derived by perfecting therapeutic cloning techniques or from research into subsequently-derived stem cells, then it would actually be immoral to prevent it just because of a 'yuck' factor."

Stem cell research is one of the most promising areas of medical science.

Stem cells are the body's master cells and five-day-old embryos are packed with them - each with the potential to turn into any tissue in the body.

It is this ability which scientists want to harness to treat diseases such as Parkinson's Disease, strokes and Alzheimer's Disease.

To do that, they need to have access to thousands of embryos for research.

Short supply

The problem is that human eggs for research are in short supply and to obtain them women have to undergo surgery.

That is why scientists want to use cows' eggs as a substitute.

They would insert human DNA into a cow's egg which has had its genetic material removed, and then create an embryo by the same technique that produced Dolly the Sheep.

The resulting embryo would be 99.9% human; the only bovine element would be DNA outside the nucleus of the cell.

ChimeraIt would, though, technically be a chimera - a mixing of two distinct species into one.

The aim would be to extract stem cells from the embryo when it is six days old, before destroying it.

Lady Loses Sense of Taste & Smell After Using Cold Medicine


Zicam causes loss of taste and smellABC7 in Denver, Colorado brought media attention to the potential side effects of Zicam when it reported on a station employee who lost her sense of smell after using Zicam to treat a cold. The employee was diagnosed with anosmia, a condition that likely will result in the permanent loss of her sense of smell.

The station received an outpouring of user feedback following its report. ABC7 reported that within a week of running the story, they already had received 80 reports from people injured by zinc nasal spray. Most of those experiencing serious side effects had used Zicam. The others had used Cold Eeze.

Below is an email I recieved today:

Marijuana Prevents Progression of Alzheimer’s Disease


marijuana-1.jpgNew research from the Scripps Research Institute in California shows that the active ingredient in marijuana, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), may prevent the progression of Alzheimer's disease by preserving levels of an important neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh) which is responsible for learning and memory as well as muscle contractions. The THC found in marijuana works more effectively at preventing the break down of ACh on those with Alzheimer's disease as opposed to the other pharmaceutical drugs currently available on the market for patients.

THC is also more effective at blocking clumps of protein that can inhibit memory and cognition in Alzheimer's patients, the researchers reported in the journal Molecular Pharmaceutics.

The researchers said their discovery could lead to more effective drug treatment for Alzheimer's, the leading cause of dementia among the elderly.

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive and irreversible brain disorder characterized by gradual deterioration of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Those afflicted suffer memory loss, impaired reasoning, diminished language, and physical functioning. The ultimate cause of the disease is unknown, though believed to be hereditary.

Possessing marijuana for recreational use is illegal in many parts of the world, including the United States, though some states allow possession for medical purposes.
