Everybody should take LSD at least once or be regarded as an intellectual infant.

Think you know what’s going on in the world? How can you be so sure? You may not even know what going on in your own mind. Step outside of the big box in your skull and have a good look at yourself in the mirror of your own psyche by dropping a tab or two.
CS Lewis once wrote about perspective by examining a beam of light in a dusty barn. If one was born in the beam of light then light is all they would know about reality. Unless this one steps out of the beam and examines the context, they may never know that they are in fact in a barn. Looking at the light from within the beam and looking at the beam from without are fundamentally different experiences. One may be on the precipice of a paradigm shift.
We read a lot of different opinions on this site but I am inclined to disregard any perspective that is one dimensional. A new criteria for the serious consideration of any opinion is that the opinion is form by an experience both within and without any given beam of light. That goes for everybody; theists, atheists, agnostics, working class heros, politicians, talk show hosts, unless you have done LSD or some other mind altering, paradigm altering drug then your opinion is one dimensional, limited, stunted and in need of revision.
…or this could merely be the rantings of a acid taking crazy man. Either way, Im proud of having the courage to enter the great unknown. Death, where is your sting?
