Moses was on psychedelic drugs when he heard God deliver the Ten Commandments, an Israeli researcher claimed in a study published this week.

Moses was high on drugs: Israeli researcher

the-burning-bush I spotted this during my lecture yesterday on intestacy, and its the most surreal thing I’ve seen all week.

The article, its a short one, says that Moses was high on drugs when he talked with God and saw the burning bush.

He was high, because the researcher can’t imagine any other way that the stories of Moses are true because the researcher has only experienced this kind of thing when he was tripping himself.

I think we can all see the flaw in that reasoning.

Its utterly absurd.

    This researcher is essentially arguing the “burning bush” and other things in Moses story are not real because he does not believe they can be real. Unless he is God himself I wouldn’t count that as credible evidence.

    But the more important question is, how did he become a researcher in the first place?
