Blobette, another thing...if Adam and Eve really didn't know there was a difference between following God and not following Him...then why did Eve at first object to eating the fruit when told to do so? If they are not at fault, why is it that she stopped and say "wait a minute, I was told not to d...

I think one difference is that a bird's nest is an extended phonetype. All birds of a species build identical nests irrespective of where they are in the world. Large brained animals like dolphins and gorillas have habits (such as communication sounds and tool use) that vary from group to group and ...

I beleive they have shown the ability, and more. However tool use in the wild is not documented for dolphins.
You need the brains and the body to use tools. Not much you can do with a flipper.

You have to understand that they would have known where the Tree of Life was. God Specifically told them that if they eat of the Fruit of that Tree you will surely Die. Now from that we know Adam and Eve know what Dying means. Yes they knew what fruit was; and they knew what death was at least as a...

To me there is no difference because I do not question his existence. Since you do question it, is it not your choice to do so? You are making a concerted, conscious decision to say, unless I have absolute proof, there is no God. That is a choice. It is of your own free will that you came to that c...

It is either or both. He gave us the right to question his very existence. We can simply choose to believe that which is bound by the discernable senses or we can go beyond that. How far we are willing to go is up to us. Don't you think there is an important difference though? I simply don't believ...

Blobbette, if I told you not to touch a live wire, and you do...it's your fault, you know why-you were warned. Doesn't matter if you didn't know what "live wire" means...so what, still your fault. Yes it is my fault. Although the clumsy electrician who left that live wire hanging around is also to ...

Easy for you because you know what "good" means. Or do you walk around naked and unashamed?

Adam and Eve did not know what "good" means. It says so in the bible.

they were told what is right and wrong. I disagree. They were told not to eat the fruit, but they were not told what is right and what is wrong. The bible makes it quite clear they would only know what "good" and "evil" are if they ate the fruit. And if they did not know what "good" is then they co...

For the purpose of this discussion, let's assume that Adam and Eve are symbols and not real physical people (just an assumption as I don't intend for this to turn into a Bible argument on symbolism). Okay. In the symbolic sense, what Adam and Eve represent is free will (that dreaded expression I ke...

Okay, but I thought they got it after eating the fruit not before. So they cannot be held accountable for what they did before eating it.

they went AGAINST God's commands to not eat the bloody apple, did they listen? No. Therefore they were punished as well as all of humanity and the like. I still don't believe you have examined the Bible with an open-mind, your statements are not valid. I didn't know Americans say "bloody". Live and...

Show me where in the Bible, God will punish His believers.
He punished Adam & Eve, and they believed in him.

And I do mean RESEARCH, just like you do with your science you study so religiously. I have had more exposure to and read more of the bible than you give me credit for. Yet I have never read any of Darwin's Origin of Species nor Newton's Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica nor Einstein's O...
