Would you say the Ten Commandments are to be taken literally?

“Would you say the Ten Commandments are to be taken literally?”

I would say the Ten Commandments are a great moral philosophy to live by. Whether or not there was a historical Moses and whether or not God literally gave him those orders is really inconsequential. I believe there is enough evidence of the Arc of the Covenant’s existence to give credence to the story, and the historical event would have happened around 1500 BC when records would have been easier to keep after technological advancements as opposed to during say the Biblical flood period, but if it turned out to be a myth it would be inconsequential to my belief in Christianity.
