    No one ever seems to bring up the fact that Eve evinced no surprize that a snake was talking to her! The Aid/Insight book suggested that she observed the snake eat the fruit and start talking, which fits the idea that the tree was magical ( and makes more sense).

    And ya know, no one questioned why Snow White was living in the woods with seven dwarves...

    And the exact nature of the problem is?

    So you believe it is perfectly fine to mistranslate Bible verses when they don't mesh with your preconceived theology?

    In that case, no problem whatsoever!

    angel eyes:

    The tree did impart knowledge / insight.

    ... for God knows (yd`) that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God / the gods, knowing (yd`y) good and bad." So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew (yd`w)that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made loincloths for themselves.

    (...) Who told (or revealed, hgyd) you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?

    (...) See, the man has become like one of us, knowing (ld`t)good and bad.

    Jehovah knew they had eaten from the tree,yet he asked because he wanted to see how they would answer.Only Jah has the power,yes the tree would have imparted knowledge but by Jah giving the power. Jesus raised the dead and healed people becauseJehovah gave him the power,he likewise gave the other apostles the power, thats the point im trying to get across but obviously its not being seen that way.So hard to say all you want to in writing...easier in spoken word.

    Genisis 3:22 "......and now in order that he may not put his hand out and TAKE from the Tree of Life and LIVE TO TIME INDEFINITE, --- 24...so he drove man out of the Garden....posted...the Cherubs and the flaming blade of a Sword....."

    A bit EXTREME considering the tree had no power??????? He employs heavenly security to protect the tree???? Not just symbolic!

    Allegory does cause confusion when it is interpreted literally.
