Or we could just accept the fact that it's nothing more than a story, and it's not even a good story.

8 All who ever came before me were thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them.
Notice how he says that ALL who came before him. All includes Yahweh, which is why he never mentioned him by name.
Or will you spin it a certain way to where "all" only means "some"?

Yeah. Well, I myself have similar thoughts every now and then. eg. there may be a higher power than God, or that satan is trying to do the right thing (or more precisely, what he believes is the right thing). But saying that God in the bible is actually satan... How does that work? In my opinion the OP posted some weird ideas, and started discussing it with people who made silly comments, he never actually replied to a post that would, in my opinion, have contributed to the discussion.
And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. 9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? 10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

I fully agree with the OP in his/her opinion, except I dont beleive any of those humanized dieties exist so kinda take a different stance, but I agree with what was posted.

Can you explain then, why did the actuall God (masked in serpent), according too you and OP's theory made Adam and Eve feel ashamed and afraid?
