Adam & Eve Revisited

[This is one of my more recent blog entries. I'm placing it on Conspiracies in Religions (rightly or wrongly) because I believe religions - particularly Abrahamic ones - themselves by nature are conspiracies against knowledge/science/objective truth].

How much time did Adam and Eve have to develop their minds? How child-like or adult-like were they when they ate the apple(s)? Regardless, is it safe to assume that they weren't as intelligent as their alleged creator?

If there's even the tiniest grain of truth to the ancient story, the person or being who was the superior (if not creator) of Adam and Eve was either incredibly stupid or incredibly diabolical. My money is on the latter... Assuming the 2 innocents were actual humans capable of their own thoughts and actions, we can assume they would eventually develop natural, normal curiosity about the forbidden fruit even without the assistance of some kind of alleged Serpent. They certainly would've eventually wondered why, if the apple was so dangerous, their keeper or master would even have the tree around them. Left to their own perception or imagination they could easily have come to the conclusion that their being warned against the fruit was actually a TEST of their courage or independence, maturity. After all, if the "Wise One" who surely loved and cared about them really did, he wouldn't leave anything TRULY dangerous in their midst. Right?

There's no other reasonable conclusion that the keeper of A & E fully INTENDED for them to eat the "fruit"... or probably whatever kind of drug that would make them see differently. (I don't believe it possible to represent the literally first 2 humans, but it's conceivable that A & E represent a transition from a Paradisical society to the world as we've known it). And what better way is there to ensure a fearful slave race than to convince the subjected that it's THEIR fault for being the descendents of those who dared disobey orders? You are born and shall always remain scum, or perhaps only if you conform properly to the church's strictest, most narrowly doctrinaire/dogmatic lifestyle will you have a chance at righteousness. Christ, how's THAT for a psychotically literal Hell of a paradigm?

Anyway, the apple-baiting, if at all true, was the originally vampirically dirty trick. Or it's one heck of a burden of proof otherwise... How many of us are able to see that mesmerizing, seemingly plausibly "magical" (science fiction) writing occurs in ALL ages or eras of humankind? (1/20/08)

the tree of life was also in that garden, and yet, they bypassed that one and it's promise of everlasting life (not sure if they knew of that promise though), and instead opted for knowledge. not sure what to make of that one....

Sorry I have trouble understanding how the effects of the fruits of trees on the human body would be any different way back when than they are now. Sure, they were supposedly "special" or "magical" trees from "God." Yes, I realize the inability to readily accept the basic premise can make for some heated exchanges. I reckon I'm able if necessary.

who knows, maybe it was a giant magic mushroom, and God's a tripping drug addict, and we're all his hullucination....and well....I imaging he would have one heck of a trip if his hullucination began to hullincinate....

I'm searching...quite unsuccessfully for something.
I ran across a good article online a few years back that put all the symbolism together in the story and well, basically claimed that the story is just a peice of ancient war propaganda for when the followers of the God began to sweep through and clear out the goddess worshippers and their groves (gardens)..

I'm more inclined to believe something like that...
