Pharmakeia, is, of course where we get our word "pharmacy" and all of it's derivatives (pharmacopeia/pharmaceutical/etc.). T Greek word as used here and throughout the New Testament is related to drugs or more precisely substances that alter the spirit or state of mind as we would think of such today. In biblical times many natural/herbal medicines were well known and used as necessary such as hyssop, lavender, oregano, garlic, myrrh, frankincense and many others. Yet here in Rev. 18:23 and elsewhere throughout the new testament pharmakeia is translated as sorceries and as witchcraft (see: Rev. 9:21, Galatians 5:20). It is here that one must search and reference relevant profane sources for a more complete understanding and meaning of pharmakeia as used in biblical passages.

In ancient times ~c. 1400 BC there was a cave on Mount Parnassus where a shepherd discovered the sheep were "getting stoned" by wandering into the cave and emerging intoxicated. The shepherd checked it out and he got stoned too. Word spread and it soon became a regional then national party then all around the Mediterranean. It became the place called Delphi which is where the Delphic Oracles were found and from where the Delphic Oracles prophisied their false prophecies. At that time and place whatever gods one worshiped was irrelevant as all people worshiped different and/or many gods. So the oracles would go into the cave, huff some gas, come out stoned and then prophesy, and folks thought they had something useful. This is the understanding of pharmekeia. This is also why I derisively refer to the members of the US Supreme Court as "the Delphic Nine" because due to the case called Marbury v. Madison USSC 1803, the supreme court usurped authority NOT granted it in the US Constitution making themselves the arbiters, the "deciders" of ALL things constitutional. False prophets of both the constitution and of law they are.

Anyway, a search on "oracle delphi" will bring up images and several blurbs/essays on Delphi and the oracles.

You post some great stuff here. That’s fascinating. Do you know what the gas was?

At one time I did but I really don't remember any more. I keep thinking it was a methane mix of some kind but am not certain. It would probably show up in several search results involving an archaeologist and Delphi since it's not really a secret just more of a minor detail.
