Garden of Eden absurdities.
There was a talking serpent in the Garden of Eden. Animals can't talk.
There were magic trees in the Garden, one which somehow gives you knowledge
of things or eternal life.
Why would Eve commit any sin if she was created with a perfect sinless
nature and had no apparent ambition or grievance? If she sinned it must
have been part of her nature, which God created.
So it is at least partly his fault or extension because he's the source of
The free choice/will doctrine doesn't work because God is a free will
individual who apparently never sins as it is against his nature, so free
choice/will alone is not a sufficient condition or cause for sin and
rebellion, let alone suddenly turning evil.
Eve would not have sinned unless she was created with a sinful nature, and
she wouldn't acquire a sinful nature because she wouldn't have sinned in the
No matter how you square it, God is the source of errors (sin) because
everything including 'nature' came from him, there's no other source.
Tendencies/desires etc. are either acquired through living, or must be
inputted from a source.
There's no other way. Human children acquire these either from their
parents, or by influence from piers, or school. This severely limits Adam
and Eve's options. Teaching these values along with teaching resistance to
bad influences were God's responsibilities. Where was he?
These should also logically apply to Satan who could not have rebelled
against God solely because he had the "free choice/will" to do so but must
have done so because of his sinful nature, which came from where exactly?
Alternatively, God can be blamed for having a pair of creations with the
naivety of a child as can be deduced from the above points, unless the snake
got a lucky roll on its Diplomacy check. Again, where was the
Father/teacher/role model to make all this unfold properly?
This doctrine, combined with the Crucifixion, means that the central tenet
of Christianity amounts to - God demanded a human sacrifice to allow himself
to forgive us for something we weren't responsible for because of his bad
planning and lack of foresight. And apparently we're not even sovereign
beings, so why condemn mere peons to eternal torture as if we're all
sovereign and responsible at least for a reasonable portion of creation? It
makes no sense.
But maybe this was all planned by an evil god of this world pretending to be
the Creator of all. That makes a lot of sense with all the horrible
suffering and death of innocents that has happened for millennia, plus how
well things have been going for the evil ones in this world. Evil gets more
privileges and resources in this world than the innocent and needy. That
virtually proves it.
The golden rule with food - if it smells strange from the fridge then throw
it in the bin. With Christianity, if it sounds strange and it's from the
Bible then you must embrace it as the word of God.
A question to all Christians: Was the Bible inspired or dictated? Because if
it was just inspired then it can't be called God's word.
