You are correct! The point blazed right by me! And I still find it uncannily elusive!

Adam's parents forbade him to be disobedient. But a man must leave his parents. He will find his true father (in heaven) and will no longer need his parents to guide him. The lord will be his guide.

It's a metaphor. Why do you think Lipitor is so widely prescribed?

Someone once proposed that the forbidden fruit was actually the human brain. As in Bornian type cannibalism in which the fresh and warm brain of a freshly killed victim is consumed. Apparently it has psychedelic effects. It is still practiced in the far east, only they eat the brain of a live monkey (which dies obviously). Such a 'fruit' would indeed be forbidden!

This would imply that Adam and Eve were cannibals.

Lack of the fruit of the Spirit. In a word: overindulgence

At least "Monkey fruit" is in the trees!

Please keep in mind that only Noah and his immediate family ( wife, sons, and daughter-in-laws ) survived the Flood.

Nimrod was born ' after ' the Flood. Nimrod was Noah's post-flood future great grandson. see Genesis 10:8-10

In a sense I believe that is true. Everyone must question whatever they are taught to accept by their parents without question. And that is done with the human mind (which is at the very center of the person), so there is no way to avoid that "sin". Their parents will see that questioning of their authority as the ultimate rebellion. Or, if could also apply to any authority figure who considers itself to be "god" to those under his dominion.

That is the "original sin" which forces a person to begin to grow up and leave "his parents", or to leave whatever authority is over him. To become his own person and find his place in God's natural created universe.

Cush was the father of Nimrod; he began to be a Gibbor on the earth. He was a Gibbor hunter before the Lord. (That is why it is said, “Like Nimrod, a Gibbor hunter before the Lord.”)

I really don't know what it was, but I tend to lean on the side of meat.


But this is from a scientific view that humans became very intelligent only after they began eating meat.


At least that's what the scientist say, that human brains evolved into an intelligent people because of the protein after they started eating meat, and this implies that their thinking changed into knowing good and evil.
