od didnt create Adam and Eve to specifically disobey Him. It was their choice, their free will.

You think we are... not ultimately responsible or our actions?
While the law acknowledges special circumstances that may reduce an individual's criminal responsibility, the various defenses of excuse, including coercion and compulsion, often elicit a range of societal responses. The compulsion defense, affirmed by individuals in extreme circumstances or states of mind, is a vague legal concept because it is not a uniformly accepted legal term. The terms duress and necessity are more commonly used to indicate the affirmative compulsion defenses but are not synonymous and distinguished with respect to the source of the external threat of harm (e.g., environment vs man-made.) The issues of freewill, assumed to be fundamental principals in the adjudication of criminal responsibility, are challenged by the advances in neuroscientific research. Specifically, the work of Dr. Benjamin Libet is discussed, among others, as an example of neuroscientific research intended to empirically measure the sequence of an intentional thought and its relationship to consciousness. Such neurobiological explorations underscore the increasing efforts at unlocking the complexities that interface between the human brain and correlating behaviour.
