Eve gave birth to the serpent (human race)

Serpents = big brained wise homo sapiens

Something about that experience convinced Eve that she wouldn't really die if she ate from the tree

Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me

wrong!

A human being can do A LOT of bad things but he can also do A LOT of good things.

There is charity work all over the world, free hospitals, food drives, disaster relief work, caring for the neighbor, being kind to kids, animals and elderly, being nice to fellow humans beings, medical research, finding cures, caring for environment, saving resources etc.

It's one own's choices whether he wants to do Good or Bad?
And in the end, we will be responsible for our choices. Simple and straight.

God declared that if they ate from the tree they would be evicted from the island (and therefore die in the sea) and they were evicted but they didnt die in the sea. They "passed over" to the other side just as God didnt die but "passed over" to the other side and was resurrected.

Eve gave birth the Cain who was the first to turn His back on God and give spiritual authority to the serpent the devil , and then Adam who ignored the Word of God and was rejected put out on the earth by God which lead people who follow and give rise the authority of the serpent the devil who ruled in the heart of man .................... Then came Jesus and took back what the devil stole from God , who now has the spiritual authority to break the devil off of people and set people free to be one with God and free indeed .....

Heh heh! You get it..

It's "Grandpa's Fantasy Story" - an ongoing web project that veers sharply away from the sources and is the type of narrative you see whenever you are reading something and you see terms such as "Planet X", "Nibiru", "Iggigi" and "Sumerians" a little too much and realize that the writer is a little out there. The Garden of Eden is a floating island in his version, Adam and Eve weren't actually humans, Eve gave birth to snakes - which were somehow humans as well, and God of course threatened to throw them off the island into the Sea.

It's a great example of extreme fanfiction - ya' gotta love it!

The best part is granp's indignant response to GoCards. As if the OP were some sort of established doctrine.

I sometimes think granpa must be an atheist purposely pointing out the absurdity of respecting all religious beliefs. I quite enjoy some of these threads.
