JERUSALEM (INTELLIHUB) — A Hebrew professor at a local university claims that Moses was on DMT (a.k.a. N,N-Dimethyltryptamine).

HigherPerspective.com reports:

According to Professor Benny Shanon at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, it’s likely that Moses’ encounter, as written in the Bible, with the burning bush and his conversation with Yahweh happened while he was under the influence of DMT.





“It seems logical that something was altered in people’s consciousness. There are other stories in the Bible that mention the use of plants: for example, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the Garden of Eden,” said Shanon. “The use of such substances, most of which fall in our contemporary Western culture under the label “drug,” has in many traditions been considered sacred.”

Professor Shanon argues that Israelites may have used acacia and peganum during religious ceremonies that involved DMT. Acacia is mentioned frequently in the bible, as it was used to construct the Ark of the Covenant.

Joe Rogan chimed in on the whole DMT/Moses debate in a recent episode of his live podcast which aired earlier this week.
