Burning Shiva: Has The Soma Question Been Answered?

Chris Bennett examines the different botanical candidates that have been suggested as the ancient world entheogen known in India as Soma and in Persia as Haoma, with a focus on the main two: the fly agaric mushroom and cannabis. Chris then demonstrates that the answer to the centuries old debate can be found in the archeological remains of a 4,000 year old cannabis cult discovered in Russia’s Kara Kum Desert. Facinating pictures and descriptions of the pots and bowls used to make the cannabis infused “soma” drink that led to the formation of the Hindu and Zoroastrian religions.

Here’s what the Critics are saying about Sex, Drugs, Violence and the Bible

“Scholarly, hip, witty and extremely well documented… This book might cause a revolution in biblical studies!”
-Robert Anton Wilson, Philosopher, Author and Lecturer

“…SEX, DRUGS, VIOLENCE AND THE BIBLE is…excellent… especially in its
detailing the early history… politics… [and]the… seamy sides of
Christianity… Read Bennett before rereading the Bible!”
-Jonathon Ott, Entheobotanist, Author and Lecturer

“I love this information. Jesus used cannabis for healing and enlightenment!”
-Dana Larsen, Editor of Cannabis Culture Magazine

“The book is fascinating! There can be little doubt about a role for Cannabis in Judaic religion… there is no way that so important a plant as a fiber source for textiles and nutritive oils and one so easy to grow would have gone unnoticed, and the mere harvesting of it would have induced an entheogenic reaction.”
Proffessor of Classical Mythology at Boston University and author, Carl P. Ruck
