Trippin Out on Mount Sinai?

Reuters reports:

JERUSALEM (Reuters) – The biblical Israelites may have been high on a hallucinogenic plant when Moses brought the Ten Commandments down from Mount Sinai, according to a new study by an Israeli psychology professor.

The thunder, lightning and blaring of a trumpet which the Book of Exodus says emanated from Mount Sinai could just have been the imaginings of a people in an “altered state of awareness,” Shanon hypothesized.

“In advanced forms of ayahuasca inebriation, the seeing of light is accompanied by profound religious and spiritual feelings,” Shanon wrote.

Either that or there really were talking burning bushes, walking zombies, thunderous voices coming from the clouds, and people turning into salt and animals.

You decide.
