This article is going to take an in-depth look at what really happened in Genesis chapter 3: Garden of Eden. Serpent - represents wisdom, knowledge, Kundalini, satan, dragon, beasts, animals, subtlety Fruit - By their fruits you willl know them. The Bible never calls it an apple. Be fruitful and multiply. Tree - Isiah 65 man shall live as the days of a tree, 1000 years, Just as Adam did Knowledge - knowing evil, and knowing good by relation to it. Growing out of innocence. Life - living and not dying, living forever Midst - Middle of, between two, word origin from unused root meaning to sever. http://bible.worthwhile.com/bible.ph...=3&v=0&d=3&w=0 "Of the tree which is in the midst of the garden ye shall not eat of it, for in the day ye do ye shall surely die." The woman adds "ye shall not even touch it." Titles of Jesus: Son of Adam, Son of Man, Son of God, Holy Sheep slain at the foundation of the world, First begotten of the dead. Alpha and Omega. Whose flesh is as meat and whose blood is as wine. "Just as sin came about through one man, it shall be defeated through one man." Let us first remember that God is beyond time and acts within the established parameters of his world. Even the parting of the red sea had a scientific explanation. If God wanted to destroy a city he could begin to move the tectonic plates thousands of years ago for he is beyond time. The Original Sin as Cannibalism: 1) It was not okay to eat meat until after the fall, the times of Noah even 2) All sin had to be atoned for in blood, by killing an animal. 3) Abels offering of slaughtered animals was accepted, Cains offering of the field was not. So Cain sacrificed his own brother to God who actually rewarded him. Curse and mark of Cain - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Six pointed star? 4) Mans curse was to till the ground for food from now on 5) Woman was cursed with pain during childbirth, sorrow, and subserviance. 6) The snake lost it's wings, was made lowest of animals, to eat dust. for dust thou art and to dust thou return 7) To take blood and death into ones body is to become death. Death was the error of our ways. 8) Having eaten it they become as Gods, and are then forbidden the tree of life lest they live forever. With regard to childbirth it is impossible to be pregnant without pain for the child will be kicking around inside the woman. The only possible explanation is that before the fall the egg or fetus came out earlier and grew on it's own. This would lead us to think it's easy to get babies and one who is innocent might even be tempted to eat them. Jesus also says "have I not said ye are all as Gods?" The serpent wasn't lying when he said "ye shall become as Gods," but nevertheless beguiled us to disobedience. Jesus, by sacrificing himself willingly, thereby takes charge over the entire foundation of sin. God's original plan may have been for God to be born out of man just as man was born out of God. Counter arguments 1) The tree of knowledge was present before Eve was created. It could be the actual seed of the man, or even the offspring of the serpent, but clearly it is not a child produced between Adam and Eve The original sin as MANDRAKE ROOT Mandrake (plant) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia In Genesis 30, Reuben, the eldest son of Jacob and Leah finds mandrakes in a field. Rachel, Jacob's infertile second wife and Leah's sister, is desirous of the mandrakes and barters with Leah for them. The trade offered by Rachel is for Leah to spend the next night in Jacob's bed in exchange for Leah's mandrakes. Leah gives away the plant to her barren sister, but soon after this (Genesis 30:14-22), Leah, who had previously had four sons but had been infertile for a long while, became pregnant once more and in time gave birth to two more sons, Issachar and Zebulun, and a daughter, Dinah. Only years after this episode of her asking for the mandrakes did Rachel manage to get pregnant. According to the legend, when the root is dug up it screams and kills all who hear it. Literature includes complex directions for harvesting a mandrake root in relative safety. For example Josephus (c. AD 37 Jerusalem – c. 100) gives the following directions for pulling it up: A furrow must be dug around the root until its lower part is exposed, then a dog is tied to it, after which the person tying the dog must get away. The dog then endeavours to follow him, and so easily pulls up the root, but dies suddenly instead of his master. After this the root can be handled without fear. It was a common folklore in some countries that mandrake would only grow where the semen of a hanged man had dripped on to the ground; this would appear to be the reason for the methods employed by the alchemists who "projected human seed into animal earth" Mandrake has also been called Hog apple, may apple, american apple. Lots of apple references.. hmm MANDRAKE " It is supposed to be a creature having life, engendered under the earth of some dead person, put to death for murder."-Thomas Newton, " Herball to the Bible." of their time in carving the roots of Brionie, which falsifying practice had confirmed the errour amongst the simple and unlearned people who haue taken them upon their report, to be the true Mandrakes." "The orthodox way of plucking up the mandrake was to stand to the windward of it and, after drawing three circles round it with a naked sword to dig it up . with one's face looking to the west ; the shrieks that would follow were in any case a trial to weak nerves, and at an earlier period were held to be fatal to the hearer. Philip de Thaun gives the following stratagem as the only available way of becoming the possessor of it ;-"The man who is to gather it must fly round about it, must take great care that he does not touch. it, then let him take a dog and let it be tied to it, which has been close shut up, and has fasted for three days, and let it be shewn bread and called from afar. The dog will draw it to him, the root will break, it will send forth a cry, and the dog will fall down dead at the cry which he will hear, Such vertue this herb." Plants of life, plants of death - Google Books This page actually tells us that Eve ate the forbidden fruit (mandrake in the case of the elephants?) she became big with evil, and she and adam were expelled from paradise and had intercourse which led to make a child. Was man originally PLANTED in the garden of Eden? Does ejaculating on the ground really produce mandrake roots? Mandrake root is also said to cause madness, is halucinogenic and psychodelic, and is completely capable of separating us from God and causing us to go insane. CONCLUSION It can be said without fail, that mankind is an ignorant brood of cannibals who kill their fathers, molest their mothers, and devour their own children. 1) In Science we kill our Father (all calculations done without God, to derive neutral conclusions) 2) In Magick we molest our mothers (Magick is putting ones will into nature and getting what you want) 3) In church we devour our own children (my flesh is as meat, my blood is as wine. Cannibalist Covenant) Indeed church has often been opposed to knowledge, growing, fun, especially the roman church throughout the dark and middle ages. However, I would rather be a child of God then a man of the world anyway. For God has mercy and teaches his children, but judges his adults. It is important to note that even if all this is true Jesus's holy communion is what cancels out sin. It's because he willingly sacrificed himself so that he could destroy the very foundation for sin. "Ye must become as a child again."
