"That Newton took seriously the idea that Moses had understood the true scientific cosmology is apparent from his widely-cited cor- respondence with Thomas Burnet "

(Make sure to read the original text, not modified copies where all is lost in translation, and Newton never introduced or used G)

I thought Moses was more into social sciences (the tablets with 10 commandments).

To claim Moses knew SABR and HESTON (= social "sciences") one need to have wild fantasy when reading between the lines! 

Moses knew Mosaic (theory) (quantized)

Moses had a younger brother named Aaron, who was a vegan. Moses hated and boolied him and his vegan friends.
In the picture a group of vegans celebrating their love and respect to non-human animals during Animal March Jerusalem 1263, and Moses crashing the party.
"He took the calf which they had made, and burnt it with fire, ground it to powder, and scattered it on the water, and made the children of Israel drink of it." - a completely derailed person...

That's why I don't like the new post edit time constraint. "Bullied" not "boolied". Too much Python...

sad for the man, but a different version would also be interesting:

I don’t think a horde of cicadas sounds right. Swarm is better. A plague of cicadas would not be inappropriate.
