It's a miracle! Psychadelic drugs parted the Red Sea!

Another lame pick-and-chooser makes it up about the Bible.

So transparent:
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
So it isn't a legend, but he, 3400 years later, has figured it out.

At least this time when we say, "Dude, sounds like you're on drugs," he'll have to answer, "Well yes, actually, I am."

There y'go.

I guess it's a step up from Freud's claim that Moses is a purely mythical figure who never existed.

Anyhow, what's new about this theory? There was a guy 30 years ago who claimed that Jesus and His followers were a mushroom cult or some such thing....

Anything to avoid affirming the existence and sovereignty of God and confessing His Son Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.

Yes, I deleted my first comment. I'd made a factually inaccurate assertion, in claiming that cognitive psychology (this pick-and-chooser's profession) is essentially Jungianism, when in fact it has a different (but equally God-denying) origin.

It's a reminder of the blindness and darkened mind of unbelievers to the things of God. We were all in this darkened state at one point in our lives - some more than others. It's also reminder how foolish that the things of God will be to the world.

He figured this out while having 160 (!) trips of his own, he said...yeah, it is this guy who's on drugs...if we cannot trust Moses becasue he was high, why trust this guy, ironic, no?
