A mockery of The Fall

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.

And the LORD said, "Make them all feel guilty and they shall all repent unto thee."

--tithes, anyone? Tithes? Pay your tithes here! Who wants to pay tithes to the almighty one? Pay your tithes here! Get 'em while they last! Don't wait! One day the tithes will run out and thou shalt be like the whores whose lamp oil has leaked out.

Addenda too:

Addenda too:

Genesis 3:1-7--
"Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made.

[--Are there subtle BEASTS?] [--kinda sounds like Nietzsche's "--Soft!"] [--that is, evidently self-contradictory.]

And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

[--Ye being the plural of you]

2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden,

[--Remembering that both the tree of life, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil are in the midst of the garden]

God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

[--A question for linguists: not eat it, neither touch it; 2 its or the same it? And if 2 its, thus "also then" a ye?]

4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

[--Thus here in the very beginning of this very long and heinous tome of gore and sorrow we are told that "God is dead"; for your
eyes shall be opened and you shall surely die; and ye shall be as gods] -- [Maybe God was trying to fix his own fuck-up by
saying: "Do not divide life into good and evil, for then you shall be like us, we who fucked it all up and learned the hard way;
'cause let me tell you, if we had it to do all over again, we would not have so eaten and become gods--for it is much better to
be human and unashamed than to be a god full of shame"...(?)]

[A God Full Of Shame. Hmmm...]

6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes,
and a tree to be desired to make one wise [--ye ol' serpent's contribution; wisdom as hook],
she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked;

[--As naked as gods]

and they sewed fig leaves together

[--Read, 'wrote scriptures to justify their misdeed'],

and made themselves aprons."

[Fig-leaf aprons to cover the loins of their fig-eating transgression. (--Motherfigger!)]

It all fits together: the leaves (scriptures) of the forbidden fruit (doctrine) cover up the nakedness of the doctrine (what birth of Mystery from the beginning and all that shit); thus the deceivability of the scriptures....: and the whole damn world gone to figs because of it!
