    Just one little thought....adam & eve ate the fruit from the tree "of the knowledge of good & evil" other words, before they ate they did not know right from wrong...hmmmm so how can you blame someone who does not know right from wrong?

    For a crime to take place in human law you must have the act - 'actus reus' - and the guilty mind or 'mens rea' as it is termed. No guilty mind, no crime, despite the act having taken place, as in the case of a young child for example.

    How could they have a guilty mind before they knew right from wrong.

    Surely we humans cannot be more just than God, can we?!!

    since they were supposed to have been made in God's image and he must have had an idea in mind about good and bad, why did they even have to eat the fruit to gain that knowledge? and why would the fruit or the result be forbidden when you need to know what is good or not to make it? And why would you need a tree of life if you were created perfect without the possibility of dying ? (for God does not die)?

    That'll be the old "free will" cop-out.

    This is one of the ''hypocritical natured'' understandings of the Borg. Agreed, where they will argue about ''free will'' so to speak.

    Funny how god could guard the tree of life with a flaming sword (and also invented swords) but left the tree that would apparently kill them totally unguarded.

    Such a loving god.

    Diogenesister your reasoning is true. But would even a child listen to a talking snake...let alone believe it?

    All academic, IMO, since the Genesis creation narrative can't be literal history.
