Serpent could mean reptillian or snake, as in traitor. Traitor because he went 'astray' from the plan for the Earth mission; they were to fashion slaves in their likings but to keep us dumb so that we remained slaves, and Lucifer wanted to enlighten us
Right on! I have often thought this. People tell me Lucifer is the Father of all lies, and the Devil, and is the enemy of God almighty, etc, etc. I have read the Bible, in fact, several of them. I even have a copy of the Koran, and the Kabbalah. I have never read of one instance when Lucifer/Satan harmed, lied to, killed, or stole from even one human being. In the Edin (correct spelling) story, the Serpent "deceives" Eve, and uses his wiles to get her to eat from the Tree. I don't see it that way at all. The "Tree" they are talking about I believe is the Lotus Plant.
Lotus - plant profile Names Lotus, sacred lotus, Indian lotus, Chinese water lily, Egyptian bean (English) Kanwal, kamal (Hindi) Ambuja, padma, pankaja, kamala (Sanskrit) Padma (Bengal) Suriyakamal (Gujarat) Ambal, thamarai (Tamil) Botanical name: Nelumbo nucifera Family: Nelumbonaceae. Nelumbo is the only genus in this family.
The Island of the Lotus Eaters
Psychedelia Past, Present and Future
In any case, the Serpent did not tell a lie, God did, in fact. God told Eve and Adam that they would Die if they ate from the tree. they ate, but did not die. who then is the liar here? Mankind was not made to be anything but a slave. Original man, the Adama, could not interbreed, could not even communicate with each other. I believe it was Inanna, and Thoth who brought knowledge to man/womankind with the ME devices, which I take to be computers of some kind, digital storage devices. All roads lead to Ancient Sumer.

Well that was a vague reply in deed. Care to elaborate on that thought?

Sadly .AutoWrench that will not happen. Humans have been fighting over religious beliefs for who knows how long. Wars fought in God's name.....So much killing and murder to vindicate their belief. Even the writers of the Bible let their biased opinions get in the way of their hatred of their enemies.This verse is a very good example of that.
I Samuel 15:3..
Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not: but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.
That is an extremely disturbing paragraph. This verse could bring you to tears, because it says that God only loved a certain group of people and cared none for the other children. And a God who doesnot care for children, but go out and slay them all? Does that sound right to you? And there are many more that are equally stressful to read. Yes, I have read the Bible and other Bibles too.
Does God need anyone to fight his battles for him? Then if God loves all his children, does he tell one child to go out and slay the children of another? I think not.

Context: go find it.
Read the Bible and see what the Amalekites did to the Israelites. I'm tired of doing research for lazy people.

You've got to be joking if you're asking that question. John 3:36 comes to mind, along with dozens of others.
I tell you what, do your own research. here, go and search simply the word life here and read it yourself.
Better yet, where does Christ teach in multiple lives besides the one you have now and the eternal one after?
