    ...can't dismiss anything that they've experienced as just some fantasy.

    That said, there are just a fuckton of people out there who believe in God without ever experiencing God.

      I can mess with your experiences in some interesting ways by applying electricity at the right spots in your brain, or using drugs. What you've experienced always has a reason, but it's not always the reason you'd like it to have. What you might misinterpret as a vision of holiness, an autopsy might reveal to have been a tiny stroke in the right area of the brain.
