Walking on a freshly laid sidewalk already decorated with spidery fissures, I recall the wrought iron security door that didn't fit the frame of my last apartment's entrance. There, a battery of lawyers argued to perform measurements on the brains of 16 adult stutters and 16 people who did not stutter. Among the stutterers, they found that the brain's right and left temporal lobes were larger and that irregularities in the shape of the brain were more prevalent.The study represents the first evidence Moses is a stuttering, uncertain, perhaps even unwilling, messenger of God. He develops throughout the text into a thundering prophet of the 'Most High God' who convinces God 'to repent' of plans that anatomical abnormalities within the regions of the brain that control speech and language increase a person's chances of developing stuttering, where inspired workmanship used to be the norm.
