Jordan Peterson and Matt Dillahunty debated / discussed psychedelics, specifically magic mushrooms containing psilocybin, in a conversation hosted by Pangburn Philosophy back in May. Ultimately, Peterson cites that supernatural experiences induced by psilocybin cause smoking cessation, which in turns provides evidence of the supernatural. Matt replies, saying that science can’t do that (unless you misrepresent it), and he’s right. I feel like if you put the weirdest parts of Joe Rogan, Sam Harris, and a bible in a blender, you’d get something similar to Jordan’s point here.
