Take a look at the statement Joshua made, to which I agree; " Domenic, I don't mean to seem simplistic, you see, when one searches for truth, you must take first what is said in scripture, and that must mean just as it says unless directly mentioned as metaphoric or guides you to another location. You see in fact I am familiar with all of the esoteric ideas in modern culture such as magnetic levitation using vats of mercury under pyramids and past aliens and mental abilities lost over time. But you see, all of these things are chaff in the wind, they are meaningless. They make for interesting Scyfy movies, (of which I am a fan) however, if you really want truth, and want to understand what Jehovah really wants you to understand, then only take what is fact from the Bible. There is nothing we can do with worldly fantasy's... The reason I answered you with Gen 11:3 is because the scripture says they built the tower with clay bricks and tar as mortar. That is what it was built from and how it was built, nothing more, nothing less, stacking one brick on another. Why??? Because that's what the Bible says, and anything outside the Bible allows itself to be influenced by any number of external forces. " Now....what does the Bible say? "If you EAT of the fruit....you you even touch it, you will die." But, it also continues on...."If they get to the Tree of Life....and eat....they will live forever.' Clearly, the tree of Knowledge of Good and bad was not designed to be a 'tree test'....but as it did precipitate knowledge of shame, and nudity as indecent, the fruit was designed to teach lessons without having to undergo the death sentence; BUT only at God's time, and his measured doses...(perhaps). The 'breaking ' of God's command had no physical effect upon anyone; just as is true today; absolutely no effect...PHYSICALLY. Murder, fornication, drunkenness....do not bring an early death...although excesses in booze can cause liver damage...but one drink? This is explained very clearly to us; if they got to the tree of life....the condition...ie...poisoning...would be remedied. That is what the Bible says. The trees were physically powerful...not symbolic, just as in the New Jerusalem's temple...again....trees of life are eaten from, along with curative water,...which just like Eden; real trees, real water must be a consideration. Look at animals; they are devious, cunning at times,...even jealous, yet this does not 'kill ' them. Look at Satan;;;same...yet he and the demons are still alive and well. No...it is stated as fact. The tree of Knowledge was poisonous, and yet could be used possibly in the future to impart needed wisdom without the pain, if Adam and Eve had waited. Satan made a pass at Eve, which is clearly his plan, which he did carry out with his allies after the flood. He had a desire to entice her to bear HIS children, and start his own gene pool (which he did at Jehovah's allowance). God told him he would fail in that endeavor, because humankind would hate Satan's offspring due to the fact they hated humans and sought to murder and enslave them which they did, fulfilling Father's prophecy. 'Sinning'....being disobedient to father, will get you a bad judgement when Christ returns, but it is not the judgement that killed Adam and Eve and destroyed a wealthy DNA. It was a large amount of poisonous fruit, I can see, as pointed out in Genesis. Human perfection in no way MEANS they will not get angry, use immature and poor judgement, even try something God states is wrong. Some sins incur death....some don't, as 1 John says. WT taught any sin would 'break our perfection ' and cause immediate corruption; wrong. Even Jehovah God gets angry, sad, has regrets, at times...and I do believe, learns from his past creations how to go about things differently next time.That may be a big pill to swallow, sorry. We must stop thinking in such black and white terms, and achieve a balanced, realistic view of Biblical terms; 'perfection'...'sin'....and others. Babies aren't born with ability to walk, talk, reason, and never be wrong, but must learn from failure, actually. ' Perfect' Adam and Eve were just babies, that is all, and had a steep learning curve to climb. Satan brought a lie in, and they naively accepted this as truth....not even knowing the concept of 'lying'. They got duped.....Eve more so than Adam, of course. They had no idea of the ramifications of eating in total. And I don't believe Father saw it coming with Satan, as he obviously does not look into the future in time of persons he desires to exercise freedom of choice.
