the purpose of putting the tree of wisdom in the garden was because God gave us free will..
he wanted to see if we would obey him of our own accord..
he could have made us mindless robots that just did whatever he said, but he would rather give us a choice so we could live our own lives, and if we chose we could live for ourselves or to glorify him..
but had eve never eaten from the tree of wisdom life would have been perfect..there would be no sin, no wrong, no evil..the earth had two paths laid out from the get go
path 1 - not eating from the tree = utopia on earth
path 2 - we chose this one..led to a crappy evil world..
