Start Your Own Religion
The articles in Start Your Own Religion, written at the height of the psychedelic era, embody Timothy Leary's core philosophy — unlimited personal freedom. Encouraging the youth of the 1960s to return to the temple of God — their own bodies — and live consciously in the here-and-now, Leary's ideas, including urging people to turn on, tune in, drop out, brought him legions of devoted followers and a host of enemies in the American government. Irreverent yet thought provoking, the ideas that revolutionized an earlier generation remain motivational principles.

Page 26 - And the Lord was sorry that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart. So the Lord said, "I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the ground, man and beast and creeping things and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.
Page 14 - The Ethiopians say that their gods are snub-nosed and black, the Thracians that theirs have light blue eyes and red hair.
Page 10 - We do not need a new religion or a new bible. We need a new experience— a new feeling of what it is to be "I."
