God responds by punishing Adam and Eve but God also punishes the snake, why????
The snake was possessed by Lucifer (in the story) so why does God take away. Not only the possessed snakes legs off but also, the legs every other
snake on Earth???
What did all the snakes on Earth do wrong???
You remember reading about the Scope's Monkey Trial, right? Scopes was a schoolteacher who taught evolution in the schools and was brought to trial
over it (This was planned, btw). William Jennings Bryan was the prosecutor and Clarence Darrow was for the defense. Darrow was asking Bryan if he took
the Bible literally, and Bryan admitted that he did. Darrow asked Bryan if the Adam and Eve story were true, and Bryan allowed that it was. Darrow
asked if it were literally true that God punished the snake by removing the legs off all snakes. Again, Bryan said it was a literal story. So then
"How do you suppose the snakes got around in the first place?"
which was greeted by laughter in the courthouse. The reason being, since apparently you need it spelled out for you, snakes have never had a problem
getting around and have never had legs in the first place. God did no such thing. The story is not even meant to be taken literally.
Bryan was completely humiliated at the trial, where Scopes actually got off on a technicality, and Bryan died just a few days later of "exhaustion"
and complications from diabetes.
Scopes actually wrote a book about the trial, which I have read, where you can get some details about the trial not found elsewhere. It's called
Center of the Storm
