The apple was unknown to ancient Israelites when they first wrote the Torah.

The account in Genesis only says fruit. So how did it become apple in the modern age?

It became apple when it was first translated into Latin in 500AD.

You see, the Latin word for apple is Mallus. But the Latin word Mallus also has another meaning to it.

That meaning is Mallus = evil.

And that's how the word apple became associated with the story of Adam and Eve.

The Latin word 'malus' means 'bad.' Also from Latin, by analogy with 'bonus' (“additional compensation”).

The Greek word 'malus' means 'apple tree'

A 'mallus' is a hammer.

This alleged god thing was a builder right? Builders generally need hammers.
Odin had one, Thor had one....who else?

So maybe this woman played with his magical hammer that he used to build the world, and he got pissed.

It's a theory...

If that were true, explain the paintings originating from Europe in which Adam and Even are with an apple? It's not an American translation.

You obviously didn't get the joke.

Another short tidbit about the word apple:

Try and say apple while holding your tongue.

Have you ever noticed....cut an apple one way, it leaves a five pointed star, cut it the other way, it leaves the shape of a woman's vagina?
