    What would life be like on earth today if Adam & Eve had not sinned by eating of the fruit?

    If Eve did not eat us out of paradise, all women would still be slim.:'(

    This question is very like this question:
    "What would happen if Kal-El was not sent from Krypton to Earth?"
    or
    "What would be the future if Gollum didn't find the ring?"

    And the answer would be very like too: ...

    Not if R. Crumb's version of Eve is accurate.

    Paradise? Really? I think I know where you are coming from in theory but how do you think that would work in reality? Dont you think that good and evil need to coexist for people to learn?Hmmm.....

    in my view, adam and eve eating from the tree of knowledge (they both ate, they are equally to blame) is an allegory for the awakening of the human race. no longer animals, now they have knowledge. and of course now they "start" dieing because they actually live.

    so to humor you, life on earth would have pretty much been in my opinion what brooke shields and the nameless dood had in the blue lagoon.

    if you'd rather have that than what you have today i guess it is a matter of mentality.

    So the hard life most humans have now you'd rather have then a simpler and better world where life would be better?

    how do you define better life?

    is it lack of hardship? a life where nothing happens to you is preferable to a life where good and bad happen, even if the bad happens more often?


    what did adam and eve get to do in the garden of eden? they had a naming ceremony of all the plants and animals and that was about it. sitting in the sun, eating fruit. taking a dump, eating some fruit. sleeping. eating some more fruit. sitting in the sun.


    the act of defying god and eating from the tree of knowledge represents mankind defining trait: thirst for more, for progress. adam and eve symbolic act represents mankind renouncing an easy life of just laying around and adopting a life of hardship, but filled with satisfaction.

    sure, most likely that is not what the authors of genesis had in mind. they mostly emphasized adam and eve's disobedience. i am just saying that we being more enlightened than those shepherds(or so we claim) we can find new meanings to this story.

    so said he right before pressing the post button in his web browser. after that he took a good look at his 19 inch monitor and went to microwave a pizza. he ate his pizza in front off his plasma tv watching a rerun of seinfeld and because it was cold outside he turned on the heat a notch. he then took a nap on his 10.000 orthopedic bed.

    all the while sighing for a better, more simpler life running naked in the woods, eating berries and sleeping on moss and leaves. if only adam and eve didn't eat that damn apple.
