Yes U-raven he told them they would die on that day. THEY not all of their descendents. They didn't even have kids at that point.
He told them the short of it, that to me that is not the small print, the small print comes after they ate Gen 3: 16-24.
I see all my friends who have kids especially little ones who constantly make decisions based on their kids. (too often if you ask me) but point it, as a parent is normal to think and want the best for your children, to sacrifice your needs and wants to fulfill theirs. I wonder if Adam and Eve would have had a family at that point instead of being just two of them and knew the real consequences of disobeying, would have they done something different? One reason out of many why this story stinks to me, always has. Because if we...with technically 6,000 years of imperfection on our books since this supposidly happen can think and have instinct in protecting our kids in such manner wouldn't two people who were perfect think and feel even more than us? Imo they would.
