Genesis 2:9 says--
“And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.”
[Note that both the “the tree of life, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil grow out of the ground (which the Lord hath made)”.]
and Genesis 2:16, 17 says--
“And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”
So the tree of knowledge of good and evil is death, and the tree of life is life, both in the midst of the garden: thus the garden of life and death.
Doesn't sound like an Eden to me...
So the knowledge of good and evil (most probably some political philosophy of an earlier Age than the newer Age of 'Adam and Eve' signify) is death; --what ironic soilence.
Hence “are all born under sin,” seeing that religion is the mandated education of what is good and what is evil.
But the knowledge of good and evil is death; there-fore- religion is death; because, then, one is divided within oneself, and cannot stand, which falling is the result of the original sin: the partaking of the knowledge of good and evil.
--The religiously scripted proposal as to the cure of which is even worse than said original sin, it being itself the unforgivable sin: to take the beating, the lacerating torture, the excruciating suffering of another, of the innocent whipping boy, of the guileless scapegoat, to cover one’s own ass concerning the very sins religion promulgated in the first place.
Religion is therefore the paragon of business, with its ruthless principle of Supply and Demand.
And yet--No supply, no demand.
--But, O My God!--then we would be naked and unashamed.
And we can’t have any of that.
