Stone Tablets? Stoned Prophet.

Well, after that last post, I’m glad someone else is saying stuff you can’t say where religion is concerned. I mean, does is really surprise anyone that Moses was high on drugs? Burning bushes? Disembodied voices? Yup. Either somebody got a hold of the “good stuff” or needed to be committed. He’s not the only one either. You read Revelations and tell me John wasn’t on a really bad trip.


  1. To paraphrase a quote from a movie, how come when Moses hear voices, he’s a prophet, but if I hear voices, I’m crazy or schizophrenic?

  2. Just out of curiosity, does your hermeneutic of suspicion extend to Buddhist literature?
