If God did not want human sacrifice then why did he require the human sacrifice of his Son on the cross?
The lesson being taught by the story of the Garden of Eden is that obedience is missing.
So that is something which he still wants from us.
Then the LORD God said, "Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil; and now, he might stretch out his hand, and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever "-- therefore the LORD God sent him out from the garden of Eden, to cultivate the ground from which he was taken.

We've been through this. There's nothing in the Garden of Eden story to validate your theory. Adam and Eve were kicked out of the Garden for becoming like their creators, "knowing good and evil". Not because of disobedience, not because of "original sin".
So expelling them for that is expelling them for disobedience.
Then the LORD said to Cain, "Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? 7"If you do well, will not your countenance be lifted up? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door; and its desire is for you, but you must master it.
And before then, he said to Adam "Because you have...eaten of the tree of which I commanded you 'You shall not eat of it...".
Your first post in this thread was your substantive argument.You don't want to obey God, so you are looking for reasons not to obey him.
