    That would not have been his first mistake as he had already created Satan in heaven and created Adam with a penis but forgot to create a suitable female body to put it in. He had to say oops, put Adam to sleep and then create his rib woman.

    God says oops a lot for a perfect God.

    Your view is quite simplistic.

    No apple tree, no sex tree. A knowledge tree.

    You say A & E had free will.

    The tree of knowledge of good and evil is the tree of all knowledge; as all knowledge is subject to being good or evil.

    A & E had no knowledge of anything and without knowledge of something no choice can be made. The desire to choose cannot be there as they did not have options.

    Right?

    That is why I think your statement to be incorrect.

    This Rabbi speaks to this in the last 1/2 of her insighfull but boring presentation.

    Yes, I know. . .but too many people do not believe this to be an allegory. . .they take the Bible word for word. . .or at least when it fit their needs!

    That's true. It's too bad more don't take literally, "love thy neighbor as thyself," and "do unto others as you would have them do to you."

    Eve could not talk serpent. Serpent could talk human in this myth.

    The serpent is a female animal and rendition or representation of Satan.


    Satan is a female and the epitome of temptation.


    Satan is the personification of evil and female because women are the epitome of temptation to men.


    This follows the original Jewish thinking. Christianity is based on Jewish thinking and is a Jewish religion and we should use their thinking in analysing what Christianity is.


    This is why Jewish men have a morning prayer thanking God that they are not female. Women, like it or not, are the epitome of temptation of both men and women. Most sins in the world are generated by women, not by their desire or design but by natures design.

    All we can do for the mentally deficient is try to correct them.

    Their delusional thinking is not their fault. It is the fault of the lying priests, preachers and imams, who have taken advantage of the human penchant of believing that there is someone greater than themselves.

    If religions offered good and moral Gods the way Gnostic Christianity does, this would enhance our belief in someone greater than ourselves. The mainstream religions have corrupted our natural desire to find that greater being by making theists believe that a genocidal slave wanting God is good.

    It makes more sense to think of god, the creator of life, in the feminine.

    If you look at the Eastern God as well as the original Jewish God, you will see that they are androgynous.

    Christianity did not like the feminine to be associated with their misogynous God of war so they wrote the feminine out of most of the bible.

    I think it makes more sense if you think of the serpent as a trouser snake

    Eve was probably eyeing it and comparing it to Adam’s tiny appendage and thinking its head is very similar to this juicy apple

    And all white men have since lived in a state of immense insecurity which they blame on women

    The Jewish men who pray a thank you for not being women are closet homosexuals who secretly envy eve in her capacity as the world’s first size queen

    Methinks you are showing your insecurity.

    Discrimination is not a good thing unless it has a just cause.
