William asks…

After adam and even apparently failed God, then what was the point in letting humanity continue on anyway?

For amusement? I wonder if it’s amusing to watch humanity try to attain perfection or a ‘sin free’ godly type of state of being when it was never possible for us to begin with, seeing as we’re innately inclined to things like imperfection and ‘sin.’

Does God require ‘sinful,’ imperfect epigones to look down upon in order to somehow feel greater? Did he expect us to somehow cast off our mischievous ways at some point down the road, so that we would again be satisfactory to his wishes? What is the point in fostering an innately and naturally imperfect and ‘sinful’ being? Was god curious to discover how long it would take us to invent the atom bomb, and then perhaps destroy the earth? Our existence doesn’t make much sense when a perfect, omnipotent being is brought into the picture as the cause of it. It only makes sense to me if everything is more or less random, where there is no creator.

The Expert answers:

The Adam and Eve story was a myth that tried to explain how death, toil and other woes came into the world; and like the Greek Pandora myth, a woman is blamed (and by extension, in a patriarchal society, all women).

The first man and the first woman live in a state of primaeval leisure and innocence in the garden of Eden until, tempted by the serpent, they eat the fruit of the “tree of the knowledge of good and evil” in defiance of God’s wishes. It was one of two trees in the garden, the other being the “tree of life”.

These trees are thought to represent two originally separate traditions which the biblical author has brought together to express his view of the origin of the human condition. The first tree belongs to a distinctly Israelite tradition. The “knowledge of good and evil” probably means the capacity for rational and ethical judgement. This attribute belongs supremely to God, who forbids humans to acquire it. After the first human pair has defied his command, God condemns them and their descendants to a life of toil and pain.

He drives them from the garden in order to deny them the fruit of the tree of life, which would bestow the other divine attribute, eternal life (Genesis 3:22-24). Thus humans are like God in one respect but, unlike him, they die. In this distinction lies the vast potential but also the limitation of human existence.

A sacred tree that confers eternal life occurs in many mythologies and is common in Near Eastern iconography. Numerous myths of the region explain that humanity is mortal because one person failed to eat a magical food that would have made them live forever (one example is found in the Mesopotamian epic of Gilgamesh). But the story in Genesis is alone in stressing that humans continue to suffer death as a direct consequence of their disobedience to God’s command.

Mary asks…

Here’s a thought, what if Adam and Eve never gained knowledge of good and evil?

People have a sense of right and wrong but in 99% of people their sense of right and wrong is flawed…

Only the chosen few have sincere, genuine and honest discernment between what is good and what is evil… and knowledge of good and evil must be earned through either sacrifice, humility, suffering or obedience and righteousness.

In eating from the tree of knowledge, they were given the opportunity to discover good and evil, but they still had to suffer to gain that knowledge and the one who fail to live up to their potential, fail to get knowledge of good and evil.

The Expert answers:

The world would be dull and boring. The Jewish sage Miamonides suggested that it was actually God’s plan that humanity transgressed so our evolution could continue. What progress can be made in an existence like Eden?

Ruth asks…

if the lord already knew adam and eve will fail th etest then why…..?

he still want to test them to see if they willl obey him not to eat the fruit or not

my point is if you already knew somethinq you don’t need to check and test and see it. for example,

if you already knew your son is a male, do you still need to take off his pant to see if he has a male orqan or not……..no rite, you don’t need to do that, because you already knew he’s a male, so he must have a male orqan, not a female orqan, correct
if the lord already knew, and all knowinq, then he doesn’t need to test them to see if they will obey him or not.

John asks…

if the lord already knew adam and eve will fail th etest then why…..?

he still want to test them to see if they willl obey him not to eat the fruit or not

my point is if you already knew somethinq you don’t need to check and test and see it. for example,

if you already knew your son is a male, do you still need to take off his pant to see if he has a male orqan or not……..no rite, you don’t need to do that, because you already knew he’s a male, so he must have a male orqan, not a female orqan, correct
if the lord already knew, and all knowinq, then he doesn’t need to test them to see if they will obey him or not.

Paul asks…

After adam and even apparently failed God, then what was the point in letting humanity continue on anyway?

For amusement? I wonder if it’s amusing to watch humanity try to attain perfection or a ‘sin free’ godly type of state of being when it was never possible for us to begin with, seeing as we’re innately inclined to things like imperfection and ‘sin.’

Does God require ‘sinful,’ imperfect epigones to look down upon in order to somehow feel greater? Did he expect us to somehow cast off our mischievous ways at some point down the road, so that we would again be satisfactory to his wishes? What is the point in fostering an innately and naturally imperfect and ‘sinful’ being? Was god curious to discover how long it would take us to invent the atom bomb, and then perhaps destroy the earth? Our existence doesn’t make much sense when a perfect, omnipotent being is brought into the picture as the cause of it. It only makes sense to me if everything is more or less random, where there is no creator.

The Expert answers:

The Adam and Eve story was a myth that tried to explain how death, toil and other woes came into the world; and like the Greek Pandora myth, a woman is blamed (and by extension, in a patriarchal society, all women).

The first man and the first woman live in a state of primaeval leisure and innocence in the garden of Eden until, tempted by the serpent, they eat the fruit of the “tree of the knowledge of good and evil” in defiance of God’s wishes. It was one of two trees in the garden, the other being the “tree of life”.

These trees are thought to represent two originally separate traditions which the biblical author has brought together to express his view of the origin of the human condition. The first tree belongs to a distinctly Israelite tradition. The “knowledge of good and evil” probably means the capacity for rational and ethical judgement. This attribute belongs supremely to God, who forbids humans to acquire it. After the first human pair has defied his command, God condemns them and their descendants to a life of toil and pain.

He drives them from the garden in order to deny them the fruit of the tree of life, which would bestow the other divine attribute, eternal life (Genesis 3:22-24). Thus humans are like God in one respect but, unlike him, they die. In this distinction lies the vast potential but also the limitation of human existence.

A sacred tree that confers eternal life occurs in many mythologies and is common in Near Eastern iconography. Numerous myths of the region explain that humanity is mortal because one person failed to eat a magical food that would have made them live forever (one example is found in the Mesopotamian epic of Gilgamesh). But the story in Genesis is alone in stressing that humans continue to suffer death as a direct consequence of their disobedience to God’s command.

William asks…

Here’s a thought, what if Adam and Eve never gained knowledge of good and evil?

People have a sense of right and wrong but in 99% of people their sense of right and wrong is flawed…
