Basically, yes--and the story is largely written from the POV of the observer--neither from Adam and Eve's view, nor God's--not even the serpent. (though I couldn't say who it was--but you know what I mean)
God commanded Adam and Eve not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. But, until they had eaten from it, they did not understand that they should obey god, because they had no knowledge yet of good and evil.
How then can god hold them (and more bizarrely, us) accountable for disobeying, when they did not yet have the capicity to understand that disobedience was wrong?
