The picture of Adam & Eve with the Serpent can be misleading unless you have done some research. Most people would look at this picture and think
that the Serpent is Satan, when in reality it represents God. It was God/Ea who wanted to teach the truth and it was Satan who wanted to prevent the
human race from recovering spiritually.
As long as Mankind accepted their servant status, and obeyed their "masters" all of their physical needs would be met and they would be
permitted to remain in their "paradise" indefinitely.
The Latin word for "apple" and for "evil" are identical (malum), the apple came to represent the forbidden fruit (Knowledge) of the Garden
of Eden. It is therefore often used to symbolize the fall into sin, or of sin itself.
The bible says that God commanded Adam & Eve not to eat of the fruit. The fruit is symbolic for knowledge. Eve eats the fruit, then she and
Adam eat it. Was it Satan who told her to eat of the fruit? Certainly the story suggests that! But again, it is a misunderstanding. The
Serpent is Prince Ea.
After EA created the human race he wanted to teach humanity truth in spirituality. But the other "gods" wanted to remain in control of the
Adam. EA formed an organization called "The Brotherhood of the Serpent/Snake." Its original purpose was to educate the human race in spiritual
The other "gods" didn't want the human race to be free, all they wanted is to control the human race. So they taught falsehoods regarding
Prince Ea. They taught that Ea was evil, calling him Satan, Prince of Darkness, evil encarnate etc etc, a bunch of lies! Ea was against the
harsh treatment of the human race, he even spoke out against it.
Here is the pivotal moment in the history of mankind. Satan overthrew God/Ea and took control of the human race and spread lies, turning the
Brotherhood of the Serpent against Ea. Satan fooled everybody and switched places with God. So the correct way of looking at the above picture is
to see God in the tree as the Serpent and God, who had forbidden the learning of knowledge, as Satan. There is only one of the two, either God or
Satan, who would lie or withhold information.
Just anotherof the many theories, and it is MY personal belief that
ORIGINAL SIN? IT WASN'T SEX!
The old testament tells that as long as Adam & Eve obeyed and stayed at a servitude level, all things would be provided for them. there was certain
knowledge they were not to try and obtain. Those forbidden forms of knowledge are symbolized in the story as as two trees, the tree of knowledge and
the tree of life. The "Tree of Knowledge" well ever notice how throughout the bible the word "knowing" is used for sexual activity; and Adam
"knew" his wife Eve and begat....man was not originally meant to procreate (I can hear you saying, "oh no the bible says"....I KNOW what the
current version of the bible says)! The "Tree Of Life" represents the spiritual side. Human kind was also not meant to achieve the spirituality of
his creator, the immortality of reincarnation of the spirit:
"And the lord said, Look, the man has become as one of us, knowing good from evil: and now, what if he put forth his hand, and takes also from the
Tree Of Life, and eats, and lives forever?" Live forever meaning reincarnation....in "that"sense we are as Gods.. As you can see, I don't hold to
the standard bible facts, as many here don't...
