WHAT FRUIT DID THEY EAT?



February 16, 2016

*****

ADAM AND EVE FOR CRITICAL THINKERS

*****

In our present world, there is no such fruit as the fruit from the forbidden tree of knowledge of good and evil.  And, in the past world of the story, there is no talk of an apple, the forbidden fruit chuckled at in so many jokes and cartoons.  Other than the uneaten fruit from the tree of life, the only fruit implied in the story is the fig from the fig tree, whose fruit and leaves are not forbidden.  So, the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil is an unknown fruit, from an unknown tree. But, what kind of fruit and what kind of tree?  What secret fruit and tree cause so much trouble?  And, if the fruit is real fruit, and its tree a real tree, then why aren't they simply identified in the story, instead of being given such a most strange and mysterious name by our prehistoric ancestors?

AN UPHILL BATTLE:  FROM BLINDNESS TO SIGHT

The evidence in the story arouses suspicion of what really happens in the story, from the placement of both trees in the center of the Garden, the strange and mysterious names of the two trees, the sexual overtones in the obscure narrative, the talking snake of temptation, and the fig-leaf aprons of shame--five symbols that SHOUT!

Still curious?  Then read "Judge This Book By Its Cover" to solve the world's greatest mystery, using reverse engineering and Occam's Razor as models for the solution.

YOUR CHALLENGE

"Judge This Book By Its Cover" presents the only true exegesis of the second and third chapters of Genesis--an exegesis not from opinion or cherry picking, but the entire evidence in the account.  No one has ever successfully attacked this exegesis, or offered a sensible alternate exegesis. What is your challenge?  Produce a better exegesis. It has never been done. You can be the first to do it.
