I believe that the creation story (well, if you look closely you'll see that it's really two) is a parable of some sort, and that God allowed it to have numerous logical fallacies like this one so that we might realize that it's a parable.
Riddle me this: God created Man. Yet Man is Evil; but God is good and therefor cannot be the author of anything antithetical to that: not without at the very least perfecting said creation, using its experiences as a means of realizing wisdom and empathy. But 'thou shalt have no other gods before me' for 'none is perfect save God': so to make any human useful on a cosmic scale would make God a liar. In summation, God could not even make a perfect creation if he wanted to; because it make God fallible and then the director's cut of 'Dogma' would happen.
Why the fuck even be God? Why create any sentient beings at all? Why not just allow inanimate matter to grow, corrode, and explode as it pleases?
You forgot the talking snake! Why the hell a snake would talk? Did the snake knew right from wrong? Did the snake ate the fruit first? So why the snake was cursed after Adam and Eve? Did the snake stealthily ate the fruit without an omniscient god knowing? And how the hell a couple that have only three male sons gave origin to all the 9 billion humans? Did Set or Kain fucked Eve? Or did they fucked Adam's ex-wife Lilith? Or did they fucked the snake?
The 'snake' was not a snake, in Genesis the word 'serpent'is used, and the serpent, was NOT a snake! The serpent knew good & evil & did not need to eat the fruit to know it, it already knew evil. The serpent was cursed for tempting Adam & Eve, for lying to them, for having a part in their fall. Adam & Eve did not just have sons, they had many children. Cain murdered Able, and ran off, from his family. The Bible clearly states that he joined the pre Adamite peoples. Adam & Eve never had a child called 'Set'. 'Lilith' never truly existed, and is just a Jewish story begun around the 1500's I believe. This Lilith is not mentioned in the Bible, nor any Judaic books of the Bible O.T. If you are going to criticize something, then study & learn it so you can at least criticize with some knowledge. You have none.
Oh, of course, great sage of wisdom... If the snake is not a snake, what it is? Why did it "knew evil"? Was it evil to grant knowledge to humans? Is ignorance and blind obedience better than knowledge?
And pre-adamite people? Created by who? They appeared from the void?
And about Lilith and Lilum, they are quite older than 1500's, and many academic writers can tell you how they appear in old legends.
Bible is just a bullshit of old legends and tales stolen from bronze-age nomads, nothing there "really exist"...
Thinking about the fruit and god's order... it's a little bit like telling your kid he is absolutely not allowed to pull the pin on the hand grenade you keep in the other room, but not telling him it's going to blow up in his face if he does.
Hmm now there's an idea . . .a member of my facebook page came up with the idea that instead of giving to the church religious people should throw their money into the air and let god take what he wants
