The Pharmacratic Inquisition DVD Part 1 of 12
The amanita mushroom plays a central role in this film and is presented as the basis for the shamanic elements in Christianity. Amanitas have a long history of use among northern European and Siberian shamans – the very cultures from which the term “shaman” originates. Within these cultures, “shamanism” was synonymous with amanita use and knowledge of its psychoactive properties were well known throughout that region of the world. That the shamanic use of the amanita might influence Christianity should therefore not necessarily be a surprise, but the argument that Jesus actually is an amanita, and not a historical figure, is probably a surprise to most.
Excellent documentary mostly about astro-theology , Shamanism and the Aminita mushroom.
Here's a non-youtube link to watch the whole movie:

MushWorld had invited RSTDC to go to Korea on mushroom & edible fungi conference and training on modern techniques in mushroom cultivation. Tawat Tapingkae and Wanchai Palee took that opportunity and gained back a lot of knowledge and experience for improving Thai mushroom industry.

Gary talks about the fact that Euro pharmacies can ID mushrooms for folks--not what you'd get at your local Walgreens! This from the Saturday early Foray at 2009 Telluride Mushroom Festival!

This is a short video about the different forms this species can take on. Note the two specimens @0:05, they are both the same but from different areas. The rings around the base of the stipe (stem) are weak, they are worn away with ease by the elements or rough handling if one is taking herbarium specimens for further study
