I am the OP.
Yes, I have certainly been aware of John Allegros excellent work and have been an artist and entheogen lover for many years!
However, when you research the former luciferians and satanists, they say it is a luciferian trap--in fact the entire new age is just a deception.
I have gone back and forth on this, but I think it is quite telling that even Lou Baldin aka "sleeper" is raising his children as Christ followers. He even says it can't hurt, as his explanation. I would postulate that he may have doubts.
As for NDEs--the operative term is "near death" and we cannot know until we see it for ourselves, but based on personal experience and research, I think, like Lou himself, it is safer and smarter to follow Christ.
Another great link on debunking Evolution is Professor Walter Veith, former evolutionist turned creationist. You would have to be worse than the worst never read a book, let alone the bible, zealot, to believe in the faith of evolution. Veith makes wonderful biblically-based arguments using science's own absurdities. Doesn't surprise me, as most supposed experts are on what I call a "demon tit" of grants, tenure and do what they told.
