Despicable world? Why focus on the negative? There are so many more good people than bad. There are countless acts of kindness each day. This world is the best place we know.

The world is far from despicable...the world is beautiful. There are some despicable things being done by a minority of the people who inhabit this big Blue Marble, but as far as I can tell from 61 years of life and countless travels at home and abroad, most people are really pretty darned kind (if given the chance).

As for poor Eve...she has had such a bad rap in all the stories and myths. So has Mary Magdelin, so have lots of historic women...but well-behaved women rarely make history

I guess we always have to find somebody to blame for our mistakes instead of taking responsibility for ourselves. If I'm not mistaken I believe the Christian Bible was written by men not women and they have been blaming women for all of the things that have gone wrong in this world instead of taking responsibility for their own actions. Just my opinion.

It was part of gods plan. He knew satain was there and she would be tempted. If adam did not take part after the fact they would not have been together after that. Eve would have been cast out of the garden. How would man become if they were not together.
it was part of god's plan to introduce war and famine and poverty and sickness and death to the world? to use "hell" as a threat to make us love only him and worship only him and give god the glory and feed his ego?

How handy! To blame women for all negativity. What a nifty way to avoid taking personal responsibility for anything!
