I think it quite ironic that God, who tells us to reproduce as his first commandment to man in Genesis 1, does not give us something to reproduce with till Genesis 2; 18.
Are you sure that God was speaking directly to Adam in Gen. 1 and not in a more general sense giving some marching orders to all the animals that had just been created?
God never tells Adam why he is being chastised.
Well God did ask Adam if he had eaten the forbidden fruit and Adam answered in the affirmative, so Adam, given some Reasoning faculties by God probably figured out why he was being chastised.
As a man, I am not pleased that God has cursed my fellow man to have to suffer ruling over women. To rule over women is to be responsible to them and their demands. I think we should stop being slaves to women and give them full equality.
Well us Christians also have the option of joining an all male monastery!
They should collect all the pedophile priests and have them do just that.
If Adam was to reproduce, he would have to know about sex. Sex has both good and evil aspects and without the knowledge of the tree, Adam could never follow God's first command to reproduce and yes, it was to A & E and not just the other animals.
That is what I meant when I say that Adam and Eve had no sexual desire till after they ate and recognized that they were naked. God was out of line and unjust for placing A & E in that catch 22.
