Satan encourages man to disobey God and he does.

He has chosen satan as his master.




He is given another chance.

Live under God's rules and be rewarded.

Live under satan's rule and be punished.

Last chance.



Rejecting intelligence had nothing to do with it.
This is a very shallow interpretation based on face value of the story. There are metaphors that are contained within the adam and eve story that the author explains.

Why call it the tree of knowledge? The bible could have called it the tree of anything else you can possibly think of but chose the word knowledge. Why do you think that is?

What is the meaning of the story? Not your 'meaning' the author's meaning.

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?
