Now I'm totally confused, are you saying we are suppose to have supervised sex only? As in a 3rd party watching? I have three kids, its pretty straight forward and never needed any help, what gives here? Now on one hand you could say they aren't alone as they have each other. I just fail to see the need for the third person, oh sure it can make things funner but by no means is it necessary.
it wasn't a fruit, it was unsupervised sex
There is something just a little to odd and hard to believe about this, do you have something to back up why your believing this? I would like to read it too. And what about all the plant life as well, were they forbidden from having sex as well? And why the cover up for the act of sex in this part of the bible when its more than clear later on, like how a man shall not lay with another man in the same way that he does with a woman. In a sense they are even teaching you at this point, at least that you lay to perform the act.
reproduction was only selectively allowed between the creatures in the garden. Enki taught humans the joys of spontaneous sex. which in turn made Enlil expel our kind from the garden of life.
I'm assuming this was from directing them that eating from the tree would not bring death to them. And why is the term eat or eating in this section non functional like it is in the rest of the bible. The surley aren't talking about sex durring the rest of the times they mention eating?
over time Enlil became known as the envious god from the old testament and Enki was turned into the snake in the story.
But the book doesn't say anything about the idea of shame being developed, it appears to happen in an instant after eating from the tree. There is nothing inbetween.
creatures where naked, so catching the transgressors to enlil's law wasn't such a hard job. and that's why the concept of shame was developed and the beast started wearing clothes.
So are you saying that the reason why these sections don't appear to make sense is becasue of the editing? And whats so impossible about virgin births? We do them today it's called artificial insemination, and yes you can both be virgins.
christianity stole from every other religious text merely editing the sex parts out and creating bogus concepts like virgin birth.
It is perhaps the most natural thing in the world, but its as though your either trying to say it's not suppose to be natural or that it was suppose to be controlled.
nope sorry you religious zealots can pretend all you want but all of us here, we're here due to our progenitors having in fact engaged in a sexual act.
I'm still lacking the connection between eating from the forbidden tree, and sex. And why would the term eating be used, unless it was in the context of oral sex, but I find that hard to believe as well.
in case anyone didn't notice that's what separates the abrahamic faiths from other religions, sexual repression
I understand that you are looking for the physical evidence of the Garden of Eden.
The APPLE was most likely a POMEGRANATE as Apple Trees did not grow in the area that was between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers which was the area that was described as the Garden of Eden.
Meh Split you might be right but you forget about the infinite divine grace.
It is IMPOSSIBLE for only one Man and one Woman to populate a Planet as two people do not have enough Genetic Diversity to create our current population. After two Generations the Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren would have children with Birth Defects as well as those children most likely being STERILE.
Indeed it is a request.
What if man asked her to make him a sandwich I mean, for the apple? Then it's a request and not temptation.
That also might be true.
What if she was holding out on all the apples and he just wanted one?
Death is not the end of the road.
One thing is for certain. When a person dies...if a person has a Spirit and I believe we do...once a person does leave the constraints of the Body...that Spirit no longer has any concerns of the Body. This means that the idea that you die and exist just as you were when living except you reside in some Mansion in Heaven...is not consistent with the concept of a Spirit
