In order to understand something you first must know about it. Knowledge is the foundation of Understanding and if the Knowledge is incomplete there won't be an Understanding.

If you read a significant amount of the bible ( the Adam & Eve story and other stories that touch on the same concepts) you should understand (for yourself) what the story is actually about.

^^Was what I typed hard to understand?
How much exactly is a significant amount? And 'what' truth is in the Bible?

The 'truth' doesn't come from a book.

Well, the bible isn't a factual book so the 'facts' won't be found there.

Telling a person to read the bible isn't helping them. Do you not realize how many people read the bible daily and still are stuck on stupid?
