How can what I've posted make any less sense than Eve talking to a snake and eating an apple from a tree where she gains all this knowledge of good
and evil? Since when does fruit make any of us wise to what is good and evil?
Wow, first of all I must congradulate you for such an interesting topic of discussion and for your creative interpretation.
However, its hard for me to agree with you on this. The reason being, religion requires faith. You said yourself that you dont believe this story that
you came up with, thats just your own interpritation of it. Tho the story of a serpent seducing eve into eating an apple that makes her aware of good
and evil sounds really farfetched, that is what we believe happend. We have faith
in that story. Many things in the bible are compleatly out
there by todays standards, and we may never know weither or not these things truly happend, but we believe it to be, that is our faith. Most religions
require you to let go of possiblilitys, probabilitys (spell), the possible, or the impossible. I mean, thats what a miricle is all about. If you have
faith in what you believe, and you believe these things to be true, than to you they are. Everyone is diffrent tho, and have diffrent beliefs.
