The head of the Department for external Church relations of the Moscow Patriarchate Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk, criticized the attempt by American scientists to study religious experience with hallucinogenic mushrooms.

Previously, scientists from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore announced the beginning of the experiment, during which they intend to give dozens of different religions with two powerful doses of psilocybin. This substance found in hallucinogenic mushrooms. The experiment is conducted in order to assess the influence of psychedelics on religious experience. In particular, psychologists want to find out whether they will make religious leaders more confident in their work and will change if they have religious thinking.

«This has nothing to do with religious experience, even if in this experiment involved a priest, and experience, in turn, has nothing to do with a hallucination. There is a certain difference between the way old Testament prophets received revelations from God, and sensations from the ingestion of hallucinogenic agents», — said the TV channel «Russia 24» Metropolitan Hilarion.

He added that he does not understand the essence of the experiment and is not possible results. According to him, the Orthodox understanding of the religious revelation, the initiative of scientists will have no effect.
