Believing in mythical people from millennia ago is rarely a good thing...
Especially in this case, where one teaches that we are born into sin... Thus babies who are innocent and pure are made to be evil because of said mythical persons...
fully disagree with you
Have you ever wondered what someone might take away from such a story who had not been indoctrinated into it?

I don't take it literally... I think of it as a really good story
Similar to humpty dumpty...

Come on you should know I don't believe those stories are anything other than stories meant to teach some kind of moral. Like the boy who cried wolf or goldilocks. The stories can still have meaning, but they don't have to be what some empire has said they mean.

I am just attempting some light conversation.edit on 6-3-2014 by Grimpachi because: (no reason given)
Original sin is not a good thing in my opinion. It teaches people that sin is unavoidable and that it is always destined to be that way. Why would you try to avoid doing it if it's inevitable anyways?
