The Bible is Wrong About “Original Sin”

There are three ways to prove that the Bible is Wrong About “Original Sin”. First, let’s look at the essence of the story of Adam and Eve.

The Back Story

The Lord God creates the ” Tree of Life” and “The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil”  and places them in the Garden of Eden. Ex 2:9

The Lord God put Adam in the Garden of Eden Ex 2:5.

The Lord God tells Adam he may not eat of the “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil” for in the day that thou eatest thereof, thou shalt surely die. Ex 2:17

The Lord God makes Eve out of Adam’s rib. Ex 2:22

The serpent asks Eve if God had said “Ye shall not eat of every tree in the garden“. Ex 3:1

Eve acknowledges that neither she nor Adam should eat of the “tree which is in the midst of the garden“. Ex 3:3
(How in the heck is Eve supposed to be able to identify the forbidden tree if all she has to go on is that it is “in the midst of the garden”?)

Wrong By Evolution

If you acknowledge that evolution is the process by which we came to be, then there was no Adam and Eve and there was no Garden of Eden and there was no eating of the forbidden fruit. Thus, there was no original sin.

Q.E.D.

Don’t Acknowledge Evolution? then…

Wrong By Critical Thinking

OK … thinking about the back story; let’s apply some critical thinking here. You know, that thing that colleges brag about instilling in their graduates.

Fact: Eve has not yet eaten from the “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil”. Therefore, she has no idea of what is good (God, Adam)  and what  is evil (serpent).

Fact: A strange looking creature (no breasts, puny nipples,  penis, facial hair, bigger and more muscular than she) said something called god said she would surely die if she ate of the fruit of the  “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil”. Eve has no reason to believe this second-hand  “hearsay”  from this strange looking creature (Adam) because she had not yet eaten from the  “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil”.

Fact: Another strange looking creature (serpent) tells Eve, face to face,  that she WILL NOT surely die if she eats of “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil”.

Fact: Since Eve has not yet eaten from the “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil”  she has no basis for evaluating anything said by either the serpent  or Adam.

Fact: Eve having not yet eaten from the “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil”,  “saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.” Ex 3:6

THINK

And why shouldn’t she eat the apple? She wanted to be wise and “the tree was good for food”. What is wrong with that? Adam said “God said, Don’t eat the fruit”; the thing in front of her, the serpent, speaking to her at the moment, said “Do eat the fruit, you will not die”.

Having no ability to distinguish good from evil, Eve did what the last strange creature to talk to her told her. When she ate and saw that the serpent was right, that she did not die, she then had reason to believe that the serpent was the truthsayer and god (whatever ‘god’ is) through Adam, was wrong. From Eve’s perspective, the word or concept “god” had no meaning.

Eve now felt free to give an apple to Adam, knowing that he would not surely die either and that that thing, god, was wrong.

Eve cannot be faulted for selecting fruit from the “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil” when all she had to go by was that it was “in the midst of the garden“. She could not know that a particular tree of the many in “the midst of the garden” was THE TREE. All she knew, for she had not yet eaten from “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil” was that she saw  “a tree that was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes”.

Conclusion

There is no way Eve could have known she was doing evil because she had not yet eaten from the “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil”.

Wrong By Biblical Proof

The flood killed all those who were infested with sin. Only perfect Noah and his family survived. Thus, just as sin was propagated via Adam and Eve’s progeny, freedom from sin was propagated by Noah’s progeny.

Wrong By Fact

Evolution is how we came to be. Thus there was no Adam or Eve.

Wrong Due To  Christian MisUnderstanding

In Genesis 3:22  we learn that God is not concerned with Eve’s “sin”;  does not care that Eve ate the apple. It turns out, the “Lord” is afraid that man might live forever. That is what upsets God

3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
3:23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.

Scream of Incredulity

WAIT! Let’s look at that again. God is afraid that man might get a chance to eat from that OTHER tree (the tree of life) so God sends him out of the garden of Eden! Not because Eve ate from the apple but because GOD IS AFRAID that man would eat and live forever.

Conclusion

The concept of “original sin” is without merit and totally discredited. Eve is absolved from creating original sin. She got a bad rap.

Questions

If there was no original sin, what is Jesus saving us from?

How is it that we inherit the alleged “sin” of Adam and Eve?

Why would the Lord God want to prevent his beloved creations from gaining wisdom?  Jesus, later on, asks his followers, Does not the Father know what you want and does he not provide? The answer is NO – He does not provide. In fact he sentences most of humanity to eternal torture because he prohibited the acquisition of wisdom; i.e. failed to provide.

Was Adam a Jew?

Was Adam circumcised?

What made Adam, Eve’s husband?

Who performed the marriage ceremony?

When was the marriage ceremony performed?

Was the marriage consummated? If not, they were not married.

When did snakes stop talking?

Why did all knowing God have to ask where Adam and Eve were hiding?

How can anyone believe this cockamamie story?

    Emmanuel states, “There is more to God than the world knows”.
    Translation: “Humans can imagine things they cannot explain”.

    Emmanuel states, “blah blah God blah blah repent blah blah faith”.
    Translation: “I am an easily brainwashed person, brainwashed from birth and making no attempt to break free from that brainwashing”.

  2. Zira237 says:

    Actually I think in the Bible God himself united Adam and Eve. That’s probably the most possible.

  3. That is a poor explanation. Don’t assume you know what Eve knew before she disobeyed God. Don’t assume she would not learn about a wide variety of wonderful things unless she disobeyed God. You cannot conclude that she had no frame of reference to be able to distinguish between good and evil. Just because you don’t believe disobeying God is evil, does not mean you are right.

    Take a good course, a basic one, like introduction to the old testament before you continue making error after error after error. Practically not one point you make is valid, no matter how much you wish you were on target.

    • Jim Parker says:

      Gadarenetoday states, “You cannot conclude that she had no frame of reference to be able to distinguish between good and evil.”

      Translation: “God was either lying or confused when he called it ‘the tree of knowledge of good and evil’, because Eve could already tell good from evil before eating from the tree. Either that or Gadaren is just a tard xtian who doesn’t even know how to make up believable apologetics lies.”

  4. Spearwolf says:

    Not only did Adam & Eve not have a knowledge of good and evil, they also had no concept of death because nothing died. Also their temptation to eat of the forbidden fruit was perpetrated by the once super archangel the cherub Lucifer. He was able to turn one third of the angels in heaven against god. How difficult would it have been for him to convince the naive Eve to disobey god? Why did god allow Satan in the garden of Eden knowing his intentions? It is as though god wanted man to sin and made sure that it occurred by not giving Adam & Eve an awareness of what is good or evil. They could not differentiate between good and evil so it was easy for Satan to deceive them. It’s like giving someone who doesn’t know anything about math a math test and when they fail they are punished for failing the test.

  5. Emmanuel says:

    Please do not address God as something every again cause even a 5 year old child wouldn’t address him in such manner
    whats your understanding of death ?
    because I know it as a state when on is separated from one form to another, so in the case of Eve and Adam they died because they were separated from God by sin.
    Also God is not afraid of man he didn’t want a sinner who will not be able to redeemed for redemption was gotten from Jesus Christ so just imagine man not being able to die how will redemption be attained
    remember God didn’t stop man from eating the tree of life so he wasn’t afraid man would live forever
    the serpent was the bad guy here for he motivated Eve and Adam to cause a separation between them and God
    please if you are not sure of something in the bible please ask the Holy spirit so you don’t perverse the Gospel

    • Jim Parker says:

      Emmanuel states, “please if you are not sure of something in the bible please ask the Holy spirit so you don’t perverse the Gospel”

      How does somebody ask questions of a fairy tale creature? How do you perverse a gospel that perverts itself?

  6. Eyeconoclast says:

    Actually, the serpent is the good guy because he tells Eve the truth: she didn’t die. This is a polytheistic tale in which the gods kick Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden so they won’t overrun the other gods with their progeny.

    The truth about this story is SO much more interesting than the infantile nonsense spewed by Nicholas and his ilk. Nicholas: time to let go of your kindergarten views and open your eyes to the fascinating world. I’ll refrain from the Willie Wonka spoiler; one can only take so many shocks to the system at one time.

  7. Nicholas says:

    To eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil…means taking on value systems. God did not want us to take on value systems. We have no right to judge anything as right or wrong, as good or evil because everything that takes place on planet Earth is in Divine Order, no matter how wonderful or terrible it may seem to us. To understand this a little better, it must be realized that all mankind is the incarnation of God, not just Jesus. God is literally everything and everyone. All of existence is God’s three-dimensional fantasy. Whatever happens to one of us is happening to an incarnation of God. It is an incarnation of God that is being done to. When you make someone wrong you make wrong an incarnation of God. That separates you from the oneness of all things…and you fall from God’s grace.

    • Oh My God…. where did you get that shit?

      “We have no right to judge anything as right or wrong, as good or evil because everything that takes place on planet Earth is in Divine Order”. Do you really believe that? Do you live your life judging nothing, no one? I am going to use that stupid quote and mock it where ever and when ever I can. So in your world, you have no opinions? You are telling me that you would watch and give that christian shit-eating grin while you watched a young girl be sold into slavery and used as a sex toy by big swarthy hairy men? And you would see that as God’s divine order? What if it were your daughter? Or how about Catholic priests molesting little boys? No judgement there? All part of God’s devine order? What if it were your son? Same “god’s divine order” bullshit? Please god – I pray this guy posting on my website has no children. They would probably end up as simple as he is.

      Who says what you said is true? How do you know that? Did you just make that up? Why is it that there are 10,000 religions extant and maybe 10 of them could come up with what you just said?

      Which god are you talking about? Zeus, Jupiter, Ra? Apollo? or is it the one in Deuteronomy 10:17 “For the LORD your God is God of gods” wherein even your God admits that there are other gods. He just claims that he is the god of gods but gives no evidence.

      I don’t give a “Rat’s Ass” if I fall from God’s grace.There is no God you pontificating simpleton.

      • Emmanuel says:

        I know understand why some people never change you are blinded by your own knowledge
        you claim this and that check Ps82:6 and don’t be destroyed by your own knowledge
        Repent from your foolish ways and stop being wise in your own eyes there is more to God than the world knows .
