Within the Garden of Eden, at its center was the tree of Wisdom. Why then was the eating of the apple the form of original sin? IF God created the Garden, then therefore he could put whatever he wanted in there. So why would there be a tree of wisdom if we were not to eat from it? Was it Gods plan that we remain naive? Perhaps in naivety we are more easily ruled, but if that is the case, then why the tree of Wisdom?

In the beginning the only law we had was about food, and there was a death sentance for eating from a certain tree.

Heres a thought. There was also a talking snake in the Garden.
That's right. A Talking Snake.
A tree of wisdom, and an apple, one apple, you can't eat.
This sounds like a pretty crazy garden.
A talking snake, one apple, a wise tree. This seems like a pretty psychedelic place.
I respect people who admit they need religion to structure their life, cause not everyone can do it on their own, but I just want to remind everyone that they are talking about a make believe place that was written about in a FICTIONAL book.
Maybe Zenu will come back and take away our thetans.
C'mon, lets be logical for one minute. Seriously.
