MOSES was likely HIGH when he stumbled across the Burning Bush which, in the voice of God, told him to save the Israelites from the slavery of the Egyptians, it has been claimed.
In Exodus 3, Moses is tending to the sheep of his father-in-law Jethro in Mount Sinai, when he sees a bush consumed by flames but not affected by the fire.
A voice from the bush rang out claiming to be God and ordering Moses to lead his chosen people to safety.
The story has been interpreted many ways, with some claiming that the voice was more of a metaphor than reality, but many still believe that Moses did hear and see the Burning Bush.
Now Professor Benny Shanon, professor of cognitive psychology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, says that what may have actually happened is that Moses was under the influence of a hallucinogenic substance.
