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

Such mind-altering substances formed an integral part of the religious rites of Israelites in biblical times, Benny Shanon, a professor of cognitive psychology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem wrote in the Time and Mind journal of philosophy.

"As far 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," Shanon told Israeli public radio on Tuesday.

Moses was probably also on drugs when he saw the "burning bush," suggested Shanon, who said he himself has dabbled with such substances. ...

"It's thin air up there on old Sinai."

"Comical" is funny all right. Airliners are pressurized to an equivalent of 8000'. Mt. Sinai is about 7400', & I bet Moses was a pretty healthy guy for his age - all that walking.

Anyhoo, it is one heck of a drug screening test that can find opiates that are thousands of years old. People who don't believe will rationalize a miracle with anything that makes them feel more comfortable including drug abuse. Why not blame it on mild heat strokes produced by the desert heat? it would make just as much rational sense without calling Moses a drugged out hippie. The Bible will always seem like foolishness to those who will not believe, but why be surprised? God says it is the fool who says there is no God.
Not to mention the altitude. It's thin air up there on old Sinai.

I have to admit, I think it's comical how people here slip into King James English when they decide to rebuke or reprimand someone.

Josh,

What is more amazing is the amount of rationalism that came out of the mouth of man they say was on drugs! Whatever they say he was taking might help them to make more sense. They certainly couldn't become more irrational.

And to think, our nation is pouring millions into this country to assist the propagation of such non-sense!

Quite right, gentlemen. The Jews always have had their deniers and mockers, and those will suffer eternal damnation for doing so.

2Peter 3
3. knowing this first, that there shall come at [the] close of the days mockers with mocking, walking according to their own lusts,
4 and saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for from the time the fathers fell asleep all things remain thus from [the] beginning of [the] creation.
5 For this is hidden from them through their own wilfulness, that heavens were of old, and an earth, having its subsistence out of water and in water, by the word of God,
6 through which [waters] the then world, deluged with water, perished.
7 But the present heavens and the earth by his word are laid up in store, kept for fire unto a day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.

Proverbs 14:6
6. A scoffer seeketh wisdom, and [findeth it] not; But knowledge is easy unto him that hath understanding.

'Moses was probably also on drugs when he saw the "burning bush,"
suggested Shanon, who said he himself has dabbled with such substances.'

This guy is trying to project his own experiences onto a historical figure!

Problem I have with his argument is that I've been told that those who
indulge in psychedelics often feel extremely empowered (able to perform
super-human tasks like flying, etc.); but Moses was VERY TIMID regarding
God's commision for him to confront Pharoah while seeing the burning bush.

Baalam may have used drugs to achieve his "trance state" while prophesying,
and apostate israel may very well have used drugs while worshipping on
"every high hill" and "under every green tree", but to automatically impune
the more faithful Israelites of what the Bible calls "sorcery" is just plain unfair.

Anything and everything that burned in the temple/tabernacle (sacrifices,
incense, oil-burning lamps, etc.) was made of standard substances, not drugs, according to Biblical accounts.
