Some research out this week suggests that Moses, talker to burning bushes and deliverer of the Israelites, was whacked out of his gourd when he 'received' the 10 Commandments.
The study, published by Israeli Professor of Cognitive Psychology Benny Shanon, suggests the now-famous tablets were written in a narcotic fog, induced by plants common in the religious rites of ancient Israelites. Said Shanon:
"As far as Moses on Mount Sinai is concerned, it was either a supernatural cosmic event, which I don't believe, or a legend, which I don't believe either. Or finally, and this is very probable, an event that joined Moses and the people of Israel under the effect of narcotics."
Cool. Although, I am a little miffed. Had I known Moses was blitzed off of Acacia bark, I wouldn't have spent all this time deliberately not coveting my neighbour's ass, as specified in Commandent 10.
