Gen. 1:28 God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it.
This command was given to them prior to their disobedience and expulsion from Eden, so I do believe that they would have had children in Eden.

If Adam and Eve had never disobeyed God and instead willfully followed His laws, they would have proven Satan wrong from the get go...thus they would not have lost the paradise or perfection and immortality.
However, would their children have subsequently have obeyed God? Would Satan have been destroyed after Adam and Eve's stand? Or, did we need to grow into a worldwide society for this argument of God's sovereignty to be settled?

If Adam and Eve had not sinned there would be no need for us to seek, or search for him..He would be audible and visible..There would be no need to depend on religion, because there would be no religions..There would be no need for governments..He would be our government..There would be no money, we would be "creative" in taking care of our needs and those nearby..etc, etc, etc......

My sweet Never-miss BLUE, we could still play hide and seek, the planet would facilitate that and there could have been lots of fun instead of suffering..

Cave woman right now is "seeking the Kingdom of Heaven" before returning to creative toy manufacturing...

I agree with you that they were given that commandment. But how do you interpret the verses which imply that they were still sexually unaware, and the change that came over them after they were cast out?

At the end of Genesis 2, it says Adam and Eve were naked and not ashamed. It doesn't say they didn't know what their genitals were to be used for...just that there was no stigma or shame attached to them.

Only after the fall did they become ashamed of their nakedness and seek to hide under clothing.

Now that's just silly...Clothing was not invented because of shame, but born out of need....We are naked apes you know...No fur to keep us warm.

Got a little problem with that one BST. God would have to rebuild the bodies of predatory animals in order for them to feast on potatoes and carrots. Their teeth are not shaped right for chewing a tossed salad, they have no need for claws or swiftness in their limbs because vegetables aren't going anywhere, their digestive systems would have to be redesigned to actually digest that tofu instead of raw meat, etc., etc. The mighty lion would need to be a little more like a cow in a pasture.

There wouldn't be a need for that. Would there?

There would be no bible for you to thump on.

There would be no commandments to follow.

There would be no need for religion nor fear.

What would you believe then? Would there be a need for believing in anything if you never die?

No need for knowledge, no need for education, no need for growth.

How boring.
