Noit sure where to put this but the other night while i couldn't sleep i was having thoughts about Fruit and whether certain Fruits like Apples &
Grapes (Green Ones)are actually bad for you? Yeh i know some people here will say 'you are taking crap and laughing but i'm serious.
All this Fruit we are being told to eat could be keeping Evil with us or out there in the World. Not just Apples but Plums too... take a good look at
these fruits the next time you are at the supermarket or buy a load of fruit, put it into a bowl and watch it... don't eat it... soon you will see
maggots coming out of the fruit... aren't they disgusting horrible looking insects? And they came out of the fruit!!
Today i had a little browse of Wiki and viewed about Adam & Eve eating from the Forbidden Tree... it was Apples they ate and it is said that this
started 'the fall of man' :
The Fall of Man or simply the Fall refers in Christian doctrine to the transition of the first humans from a state of innocent obedience to God, to
a state of guilty disobedience to God. In the Book of Genesis chapter 2, Adam and Eve live at first with God in a paradise, but are then deceived or
tempted by the serpent to eat fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, which had been forbidden them by God. After doing so they become
ashamed of their nakedness, and God consequently expelled them from paradise. The Fall is not mentioned by name in the Bible, but the story of
disobedience and expulsion is recounted in both Testaments in different ways. The Fall can refer to the wider theological inferences for all humankind
as a consequence of Eve and Adam's original sin. Examples include the teachings of Paul in Romans 5:12-19 and 1 Cor. 15:21-22.
Some Christian denominations believe the Fall corrupted the entire natural world, including human nature, causing people to be born into original sin,
a state from which they cannot attain eternal life without the gracious intervention of God. Protestants hold that Jesus' death was a "ransom" by
which humanity was offered freedom from the sin acquired at the Fall. In other religions, such as Judaism, Islam, and Gnosticism, the term "The
Fall" is not recognized and varying interpretations of the Eden narrative are presented.
If this is the case, why are we constantly being told to eat tons of fruit? I wonder if its to keep the Evil spirits here you know like the fruit is
some kind of magnet to the evil!
There is argument about which type of fruit it was:
In Western Europe, the fruit was depicted as an apple, because of a misunderstanding of, or perception of intentional dual meaning in, the Latin
malus, which as an adjective means evil, but as a noun means apple. In the Vulgate, Genesis 2:17 describes the tree as "de ligno autem scientiae boni
et mali/the wood, indeed, of good and evil knowledge" Genesis 2:17 ("mali" is the genitive of "malus"). The larynx in the human throat,
noticeably more prominent in males, was consequently called an Adam's apple, from a notion that it was caused by the forbidden fruit sticking in
Adam's throat as he swallowed, and the name has stuck. Some Slavonic texts state that the "forbidden fruit" was actually the grape, that was later
changed in its nature and made into something good, much as the serpent was changed by losing its legs and speech. The Zohar (the text of Jewish
Kabbalah) also claims the fruit was a grape. Other Eastern Christians sometimes assume that the "forbidden fruit" was the fig, from the account
of their using leaves of this tree to cover themselves (also the fig tree is the only fruit tree explicitly mentioned in the Genesis 3 context). There
are also opinions that it was a tomato (however, tomatoes are native to the American continent, thus unknown in Eurasia in biblical times) because
this fruit in some Slavic languages is called "rajčica" or "paradajz", (both words are related to paradise - "raj" means "paradise"). Some
Rabbinic traditions regard the forbidden fruit as wheat : wheat is "khitah" in Hebrew and thus is a pun on khet, "sin" . Still, many believe
the quince which pre-dates apples and native to Southwest Asia was the forbidden fruit
So, what do you think?
Is it possible that great Fruit was mimicked by the Devil or Evil Aliens to grow here just like the Opium plant?
What about the tree of life & Immortality? Can we be Immortal? Are you immortal? Anyone you know Immortal?
