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.
