Moses was high on drugs: Israeli researcher

Quote:
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.
. . . . .


This sure would explain how Bush heard God telling him to invade Iraq.

I always thought Moses looked like a Hippie. :lol: Image

And this is what Bush does see when he looks in the mirror :roll: Image

Pope fears Bush is Antichrist

Catholic New Times, May 18, 2003

WASHINGTON DC -- According to freelance journalist Wayne Madsden, "George W Bush's blood lust, his repeated commitment to Christian beliefs and his constant references to 'evil doers,' in the eyes of many devout Catholic leaders, bear all the hallmarks of the one warned about in the Book of Revelations--the anti-Christ.".....

If you read the histories of most religions, it's certainly reasonable to believe that there had to be something "mind-altering" going on among the founders, and I don't believe any of it was "divine" in nature!

Revisionists sometimes irritate me. 230 years after the fact, we suddenly "find" that Jefferson was beyond redemption and Adams was a patron saint.

Jefferson killed the central bank that Hamilton set up. Adams did the infamous Alien & Sedition Act.

Latter day tyrants/dictators employ some 'history hitmen'.

I am related to John Adams and I admire the guy a lot. However, he stands in the shadow of Jefferson in my opinion.

I just got "Adams vs Jefferson...The Election of 1800" yesterday.

One of the newer FICTION titles that caught my eye, "Eleanor vs. Ike," where Eleanor runs as a last minute replacement when Stevenson dies before the election. Eleanor is probably the only legitimate historical figure that would have had a chance against Eisenhower.

Adams and Jefferson show the power of compromise: Both sides were left being pissed off at not getting their own way. This is one of the War Chimp's biggest failings, he can never arrive at any compromise.

Does anyone else suspect that Bush has absolutely no idea what a horrendous prez he has been?

I'm still not sure the nation will survive his tenure. I have long predicted it would be nip and tuck.

Only somebody sitting in the pockets of the central bankers could still be in charge with such absolutely horrendous leadership.

Listening and watching his stand up routine during the McKill press conference today proves he has no idea. He talks about sprinting to the finish in one sentence and the next being in Crawford with his feet up. He jokes about being careful about whom you put in charge of finding a running mate; they might pick themselves, like Cheney. He is so delusional that he talks about continuing success in Iraq & with North Korea and Iran. His handlers really, really need to monitor the dosage of his anti-manic meds.

I think his handlers want to see him assassinated. It would be a free ticket to the next ride.

:P :P :P
