|The prohibited fruits of Eden in the Book of Genesis of the Bible|
Some Cartoons for today, Saturday/Sabbath...!
...the God of the Bible [chauvinist-male-masculine/no wife/with a son], rested after a 6day creation ordeal on the 7th day!
[-] Nobody knows why this day became Saturday=Sabbath! Genesis does not identify actual days!
[-] The Jew Levitical Law establishes Saturday as the Sabbath day of "absolute" rest!
[-] This makes a big contextual problem with Genesis and the rest of the Bible!
...My book explains that: 6 days of Creation were "too quick to prove much anything"!
...My book explains, that for this God to actually rest, is a literal misnomer, as no God gets tired! To declare what this God had made as good, is too much self pep talk!
Simply absurd ideas of ancient minds writing a Book made "holy"...!
AS TO NEW IDEAS:
[-] Nobody says, WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED OF EVE & ADAM had not eaten of the 2 prohibited fruits...!
(a) One fruit was that of being damned to sin, death with the ACQUISITION BY MAGIC OF EATING, "the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil"...!
(b) The other fruit was the tree of life, that of living for ever!
17 But to Adam he said, "Because you obeyed your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, 'You must not eat from it,' cursed is the ground thanks to you; in painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life.
22 And the LORD God said, "Now that the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil, he must not be allowed to stretch out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever."
24 When he drove the man out, he placed on the eastern side of the orchard in Eden angelic sentries who used the flame of a whirling sword to guard the way to the tree of life.
[-] Would Eve & Adam have stayed in the nude as children and not knowing how to procreate in "innocence"...? They could talk, but what was that "innocence" level or degree?
[-] It seems that the story really means that they had to eat one of the trees, and IT COULD NOT BEE THE ONE OF THE TREE OF LIFE...!
THE SERPENT MADE SURE OF THIS BEING SO!
[-] So what is worse, is that Genesis, lacks the teaching or invention of a Heaven and Hell...! Thus there was no gift/present/prize, offered if they did not eat of the forbidden fruits! Only that they had everything else to eat in the Garden!
Thus the incentive to not do so, is not recompensated, with an obvious "knowledge" of something better for them, or a prize to be given!
RATHER THE DAMNATION IS GREATER THAN ANYTHING OFFERED IN TRUE UNDERSTANDING IN THEIR INNOCENCE TO A MERE COMMAND...!
A normal trial, which is what these fruits are, and why I do not understand!? They had to be tried as Innocent ignorant beings? Why doesn't this God try anyone of us as fully knowledgeable adults...?
To convince me to not disobey, you do not give me fruits for fruits, or other food and water! YOU GIVE ME SOMETHING WAY BETTER in exchange, to obey and convince me...!
The "Gods" did not want them to live for ever "in sin"! Though they had become as the Gods somewhat "knowing good and evil"...!
THE LAST IDEA I DO NOT UNDERSTAND IS: How can an "innocent" being, "not knowing good from evil", KNOW THAT EATING WHAT WAS PROHIBITED TO BE WRONG...???
VERY QUESTIONABLE LOGIC! NORMALLY IF YOU OBEY BLINDLY A COMMAND, YOU WOULD KNOW TO DISTINGUISH THE CONSEQUENCES WHICH IS EXACTLY THAT: "the knowledge of good and evil"...!
THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL WAS WRONGFULLY EXPLAINED BY THE SERPENT! And lightly explained by this God...! Thus it became too big a temptation to willfully oppose with a better knowledge of consequences!
GENESIS is a book that ignores the logic of "knowledge of good and evil" and INNOCENCE...! A child in innocence of up to a few years old before much speech, associates generally a command with something, like smile, scoff, small pain, prize!
[-] LAST BUT NOT LEAST AND AS WORSE OR MORE WORSE!
We have the chauvinism, of declaring that the WOMAN was the one tricked and tempted, and first to blame! Making her as inferior to man, more than a more fragile gender!
To this day women in a lot of Bible Theology, occupy lesser positions of authority, and even in Governments, etc...!
Both Orthodox Jews and Orthodox Evangelicals do not accept public participation of female preachers or elders, as to reasons of literal Bible principles and rules!
Finally THE BIBLE is so absurd and yet the most sold BOOK and used, in English University Theology ACADEMIA, and in English and other World Governments...! THAT IS HOW ANCIENT MINDED TODAY'S HUMANS STILL ARE!
But generally Cognitive Science and Academic Psychology is correct in Academic Studies!
Aren't these Cartoons so funny and meaningful...?!
