Understanding The Knowledge Of Good and Evil

Updated on March 19, 2017

What is the justification for calling anything good or evil? What concrete evidence sustains such judgments? If based on the Bible’s “Knowledge Of Good And Evil” it requires analyzing to justify those judgments.


Before we can understand the concepts of “good and evil” the man specie has to be understood. That is only be done by understanding the spiritual meaning for man and its divisions.

Man mean, “minds able to comprehend all things” with a lesser aspects meaning, “mind unable to comprehend all things” written human and woman although they have different prefixes. The prefix “hu” means “hewed by blows…” while the “wo” prefix means “woven from…” and what make them lesser aspects. [The Bible’s metaphor as interpreted below reveals why.] With man and the lesser aspects being the specie our divisions for pre puberty man are babies, children and adolescents or pre adults, and pubescent man are girls and boys.

Therefore, I use man as the plural specie and also woman.

Food For Thought

Moses was to tell Jacob’s descendants I AM THAT I AM sent him because after living 400 years in Khemet ISIS would be the name of god they would recognize and both meanings are the same. Those names suggest god is the founder and producer of all things, that from god came everything, unto god all things returns and god do everything ever done as Isaiah 45:7 reveals.

Yoshua the Christ said a single tree does not produce “good and bad” fruit that should make us understand having a “tree of good and evil” allows neither to have a recognizable foundation, that it requires one tree to produce good and another evil for them to be recognized by everyone alike. That invalidates Adam and Eve’s eating “the knowledge of good and evil” made man to fall out of favor with god.

“Man” is synonymous with god is why Yoshua often himself “son of man” and “son of god” interchangeably when talking about himself. God is what man become once we complete our learning for leaving earth.

Understanding "Tree" and "Knowledge"

Trees are plant kingdom beings of two primary types, evergreen and seasonal, which are symbols for man to understand something about life. The names of their types are symbols, evergreen for “everlasting life” and seasonal for “reincarnation.” They each grow more each year and after fruit bearing age they produce more fruit each season, thus, the reason for using tree as the producer of good and evil.

Knowledge” is a title given to something by man; trees for example, and usually are recognized by the names of their reproductive properties or fruit, so to send someone who has never seen, for example, coconuts to get some would not know what to look for. Example.

I was born in Louisiana and raised in Texas where the only thing I knew about coconuts was the inner hard shell. My trips to Vietnam did not bring me in contact with them on trees or in its outer shell. I became a nomad at age 31 and went to Florida and asked someone what were those things on a tree. I was so surprised when he opened the outer shell and presented me the hard shell I knew as cocoanuts. I had knowledge of cocoanuts but nothing of the outer shell or appearance on a tree. So knowledge only means to have heard of, seen or something else relative to it but it does not mean having details concerning it. So how can we determine what is good or evil by reading how someone ate from the tree of it without seeing the tree, its fruit and other property? We cannot.

Interpreting The Good And Evil Metaphor

NOTE: Written without gender pronouns until the second person is present.

EVIL; “that which the physical senses determines man disapprove of.”

GOOD; “that which man’s physical senses determines is approved.”

KARMA and REAPING WHAT WAS SOWN; “an actions performed by every living being, defined as IT IS; and the act one imposes on another will be or has been performed by the life force of the receiver or giver of it.”

OBJECTIVE; “recognizing all things have purpose and resolving to determine their purposes regardless of sense perception: the Bible calls it ‘the narrow way with a straight gate’ and the Buddha calls it ‘the middle path’.”

TIMELINE; “the set sequence every life force incarnate as every attribute and behavior of all species of earth.”

To make sense of the “tree of the knowledge of good and evil” we must find a logical explanation by analyzing what is and is not written in Genesis 1-3. I’ve determined man lived ecologically without fire, shelter or clothes except hair like the other animals during those 7 days (Daniel 4:33) I consider millenniums between this civilization and Revelation 21’s.

On the sixth day both genders of man were made with dominion power or the ability to exceed all life and, with the Bible written about a cycle, I suggest they then began eating and procreating to replenish the earth. They were instructed to eat from every seed producing plant that the seeds reproduce the plant.

After the seventh day of rest came the announcement “these are the generations of the heavens and earth when they were created” without rain or plants although plants were produced on the third day. From the dust of earth a single man was formed and a garden planted for its place with fruit trees of many types, including “the tree of life” and “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” eatable for man mingled among the others but instructed eat not “the knowledge of good and evil” to avoid dying.

The birds and animals are then produced from the earth for naming although they were produced on days five and six. Man’s naming them allowed witnessing their group living and reproducing that induced the desired in Adam, so it was reasoned, “it is not good for man to live alone” and a “help meet” was made to accommodate it. With the wording saying a deep sleep overtook the man it suggests man did not know it before it happen.

Adam’s statement “this is now bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was [woven] out of man” is not agreeing with the writing suggests a dream. Being a dream means Adam renamed both of them and everyone born to them woman because what is woven out of and what was woven from are both incomplete. The reading “therefore shall a man [meaning to become man again] leave [their] father and mother, and shall cleave to [their spouse]: and the two shall be[come] one [in their] flesh” proves all are woman.

Adam and Eve and their descendants taught girls don’t do boys things and boys don’t do girls things to keep the genders from developing attributes different from their bodies’ designs, girls have the feminine design and boys the masculine, makes the statement to mean both are to “become whole man” upon leaving parental teaching and developing both gender attributes in themselves.

They did die after eating the knowledge of good and evil, the spiritual death of being unable to comprehend all things, but not the physical death. Since written is “it is appointed unto man once to die and after that the judgment” it is saying man’s becoming woman is a death, including everyone killed in the great flood. That means “the judgment” is woman metamorphosing back into man for entering everlasting life the writing called eating from the “tree of life.” Their eating from the “the knowledge of good and evil” was a metamorphosis. Thus, what is generally called “death” is discarnating or the shedding of one body and personality to prepare to incarnate into another body and personality. After the New Birth metamorphosing man remember the experiences of their previous incarnation and obtain “dominion powers” as “sons of god.”

The Explanation

The writings only tell us a serpent persuaded Eve to eat the knowledge but not what happened, so reason with me.

It is written, “be wise as a serpent and as harmless as a dove” so the serpent was a wise being instructing Eve to recognize the opposites. Had she been objective she would have eaten from “the tree of life” and sought understanding for their purposes, instead, she made judgments and like or dislike things based on sense perceptions that produced judgmental adjectives. So we have good and evil without concrete evidence to support their existence and as long as man and their off springs use those terms we are woman eating “the knowledge of good and evil.”

By reincarnation and because dominion means, “to exceed the ability of,” every man life force has incarnated as every life type on earth. The days of creation gives us a glimpse of the “timeline” sequence all life forces evolves through every earth bound life type before becoming man. Each specie have a multitude of attributes called personalities which life forces must incarnate as before evolving to another specie. Each species survives by consuming others or something of other species. Because of judging good and evil man have “emotional baggage”, which also appear to be in domesticated life, causing problems in life. We don’t remember past incarnations allowing the life force to experience the exact opposite “karma” so the life force will know both sides of the experiences, thus, remembering that all man life-forces will become man again to regain “dominion powers” prior to leaving earth.


I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things” is written in the present tense. There is a cycle governing man consisting of a spiritual civilization (Revelation 21) and this material one that biblical and other metaphors suggest is 182,000 years divided by two 7000-year transitions without a beginning or end. The foregoing interpretations explain the foundation that began today’s civilization and others foretell its termination. What is written above reveals no life forces are lost because it is done by what is called god through us, so be not discouraged, your day to survive it will come.

      Does truth pertain to only one religion?

      No! Religion by "spiritual" definition means "the way of life which teaches one the purpose of life" and is not a belief in a "supreme being" overseer. If it is the truth then it is the truth of the concept which is important, not the religion it came from.

      Have you seen any concept that everyone will agree is good or evil? I doubt if you have, therefore, good and evil have nothing concrete to cause everyone to recognize the same things good and the other evil. Take rape for example, those who are raped or likely to become raped will call it evil, those who rape and are likely to do it will call it good instead of the fact that it is rape. The word "karma" has the definition of "it is" which suggests it is neither good nor evil, it is rape without any need of a judgment.

      When we know "karma" means "everything you do to someone else will be done to you exactly the same way" and we accept reincarnation as a fact then we can comprehend what karma says. It is saying "the person who did the rape in a past life or will in a future life incarnated as the exact person who they raped to feel the emotions the raped person felt; the one that was raped will or did incarnate as the raper to feel the emotions of the raper." Then doing the incarnation they become Buddha those memories will be revealed and they will integrate the two emotions into one for "the ultimate retribution" of all of our incarnations since every action has to have the "opposite retribution" imprinted in the life-force in that way.

      So, once one comprehend Cause and effects there is no reason to ever use good/evil, god/devil, right/wrong, pretty/ugly nor any of the other "judgmental adjectives" man use all the time preventing them from seeing the purpose behind every action known to man.

      Are you aware that "The Garden in Eden" story is what the story of "Siddhartha Gautama" the Buddha did at 29 to correct that in his life and is a metaphor of what everyone who survives civilization's end will have to do? IT IS what is required to survive civilization's end.

      The "hu" in human means "incomplete" just like the "wo" in woman means "incomplete" that's why the Holy Spirit told me to write these things to bring understanding where there has not been one. I have seen no dictionary explaining what "hu" in human or "wo" in woman means and god wants people to understand what they are meaning. What I've written is what god said they mean to him.

      Galatians doesn't say there are no gender when we are in christ, what it is saying all man are equal "help meets" they were made to be. Girls and boys will still continue to be as long as we are hear on earth anyway, we have tho replenish (Rev. 20:4-5) the earth for Revelation 21's civilization.

      When I prove with scripture, as the entire Hub does, you contradict what god told me to tell people what it say, so, where you are concerned people waste their time even providing you scripture proof.

      "What people call "sinful man" are "woman" who see only half of everything because of eating "the knowledge of good and evil;" man are people who see everything as a whole rather as some division of it therefore "woman become man." to become man is to become god."

      "Man" means "human" to GOD (Spiritually); not genders, if "in the Spirit!" Why do you "insist" there are "genders" in the Spirit? Why do you think one spirit (woman) sees less than another spirit (man)? Both "genders" are man "in the Spirit!" John 14:26 says "He (Holy Spirit) will lead and guide us (Both genders who are now "Spirits" if "born again!") into ALL truth!" What Scriptures says woman is half human in their thinking? Did Adam not eat of the tree? GOD told him FIRST! Why is he not half brained? What Scriptures say she has to become "man?" Where do you get this from? Provide Scriptures or only "your opinion!"

      Galatians 3:28 says "IF" IN THE SPIRIT "There are no genders!" It doesn't say woman has to become man, but Spirit! Romans 8:8 says "Flesh cannot please GOD" so why would one want to become "man?" We MUST "Worship in SPIRIT and in Truth," not in "man" and untruth! Romans 3:4 says "Let GOD be true and EVERY MAN a liar!" Why then should anyone become "man" who is a liar? Your analogy doesn't make sense!

      "Worshiping in Spirit and in Truth" means "WAITING" for the anointing of the Holy Spirit who "reveals" truth in His Word and not to voice "your opinion" or something that you don't have Scripture to back up!

      GOD doesn't contradict Himself but you say things that He has not said, i.e., "Women are half brained!" You top the cake! You REALLY hate women, don't you! If not, give Scriptures that say "Women are half brained!" REMEMBER, Adam was told FIRST not to eat of the tree, so why didn't he say "Woman GOD told us not to eat and I'm not doing it!" Why is he not half brained?

      I Thessalonians 4:13-18 speaks to "ignorant" people not knowing what happens to them when they die (physically)! (v14) Jesus "died" (in the flesh) but rose Spirit which we will do as we "IF" "in Christ!" However, we (spirits) will "sleep" until (v16) "in Spirit" to join HIM! It doesn't say another about "genders" for "Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of GOD" (I Corinthians 15:50)!

      Provide Scriptures (I Peter 3:15) or all "gibberish!"

      What woman did you like this?

      What people call "sinful man" are "woman" who see only half of everything because of eating "the knowledge of good and evil;" man are people who see everything as a whole rather as some division of it therefore "woman become man." to become man is to become god.

      Galatians 3:28 is what I'm saying, men/women and female/male are derogatory or belting terms when born again.

      To "worship in spirit and truth" is to know the spirit [intended understanding of and living] the words, not just telling others about them. That's why "the truth 'makes' you free," saying free isn't free' being able to live like the Genesis 1 man did prior to the descendants of Adam marring them (Gen. 6:1-4) is being free.

      I Thessalonians 4:13-18 is saying the same thing I'm saying but your "tunnel vision" doesn't allow you to see, ask spirit to show you. Until you learn spirit reveals in metaphors, allegros, parables and symbol-types and have it woking in you to bring you into understanding there is nothing I can do to assist your understanding, the other group of people doesn't seem to have your tunnel vision impairing their comprehension. I'm throwing up my hands and zipping my lips where you are concerned. You have no "vision" to prevent your perishing and that can only come from spirit.

      "Come to man again...?" What are you talking? Come to sinful man? GOD wants us to come to HIM, not sin ("man")! Yes, if worshiping "in Spirit and in Truth," the word "man" should be eliminated from our vocabulary if a Disciple of Christ! Why then would we want to "come to him ("man")?" Again, GOD wants us to come to HIM and worship HIM "in Spirit and in Truth!"

      "IF" one is "IN CHRIST," there is "neither male nor female" for we are ONE SPIRIT or "ALL ONE in CHRIST JESUS" (Galatians 3:28)!

      John 4:23-24 says {Paraphrasing} "GOD seeks TRUE WORSHIPERS who will worship in Spirit and in Truth!" However, "men" have turned the worship of JESUS into a "gender" thing when It's ALL SPIRITUAL!

      Do you really think I Thessalonians 4:13-18 LIED? It says "we sleep" until Christ's return and then "the dead (physically) "in Christ" (Spiritually) shall rise first..." Why "interpret" otherwise? Your analogy says while "sleeping," we get up and "reincarnate" turn into male and/or female (physically?) although spirits! If you believe this, you call Scripture A LIE!

      "Woman are incomplete because in being incomplete they think only in 180 degrees because of judging half of everything; man think in 360 degrees . John 14:16 & 26 are explained in the Hub."

      Where in Scripture does It say (Under the New Covenant where we currently live.) "women are incomplete...?" John 14:16 and 26 tells us JESUS will "send us (Both genders!) a Comforter" (Holy Spirit) to HELP US! HE didn't say HE would send the Holy Spirit to a "man" only! This is A SPIRITUAL Thing, not a "gender" thing!

      Adam KNEW what GOD told him! He didn't have to "eat of the fruit" but allowed persuasion by female and disobeyed. Yes, Eve persuaded, but Adam disobeyed and why Romans 5:19 says "For as by ONE "MAN'S" disobedience many were made sinners..." So why do you blame "woman" saying "she" has only half the capability of thinking? I'm not following your "gibberish" at all!

      "The "death of man" is the loosing either their femininity or masculinity and become a woman, what happened to Adam and Eve upon eating the knowledge of good and evil." NO! The "death of man" (spiritually) was being disobedient to GOD and sinning as evidenced in Romans!

      "The thing in the environment showing what the "new birth" is is the metamorphosis, it was a metamorphosis which caused man to loose femininity or masculinity to be left a woman so once woman have finished living the incarnations of each of the various personalities within every man they metamorphose back into man."

      Now this is "gibberish!" The "new birth" is ALL SPIRITUAL! " be left a woman...?" "...each of the various personalities...?" "...back into man.?" What are you talking?

      Once we (physically) are "born again" (Spiritually), It becomes ALL SPIRITUAL (Or should for those "IN CHRIST!")! Why would we want to return to "sin" or "man?" Romans 8:8 says "So then they that are in the "flesh" CANNOT PLEASE GOD!" Why then would we want to return to "flesh?"

      Who told you this? Why are you so "twisted" in your interpretation of Scripture?

      Under the New Covenant (Where we CURRENTLY live!) Colossians 2:16 says "Let NO MAN therefore judge you in meat, or in drink..." Why do you think otherwise?

      If I hated woman I would not be working to encourage them to be come man again, no I do not hat woman. [the use of "men" under all circumstances should be eliminated out of our vocabulary.]

      I was expressing what man was told their diet was to be, not that anything was clean off unclean.

      Woman are incomplete because being incomplete they think in 180 degrees because of judging half of everything; man think in 360 degrees . John 14:16 & 26 are explained in the Hub.

      "Male" means man and "female" means "the price paid to man" as in fee because boys worked to obtain a wife at one time. Do you hate girls so much that you would call them "a commodity to work for"?

      The "death of man" is the loosing either one's femininity or masculinity to become a woman and is what happened to Adam and Eve upon eating the knowledge of good and evil.

      The thing in the environment showing what the "new birth" is is the metamorphosis, it was a metamorphosis which caused man to loose femininity or masculinity to be left a woman so once woman have finished living the incarnations of each of the various personalities within every man via reincarnation they metamorphose back into man.

      The rest of your gibberish I will not even address.

      WOW! Do you hate "women" that much or "me" giving the WORD of GOD? This HUB "defies Scripture!" I will provide WORD that confirms:

      "Then why do we believe because Adam and Eve ate from a single tree producing them both all man have fallen out of favor with god?" Romans 5:12 says "Wherefore, as by one man (Adam) sin entered into the world, and death by sin, and so death passed upon ALL men, for that have sinned:" Is it not sin that causes us to "fall out of favor with GOD?"

      Understand also, “man” means “minds able to comprehend all things” and is the same as god is why Yoshua often called himself interchangeably “son of man” and “son of god” when talking about his father. God is what both boys and girls will become once we complete our learning process which extends far beyond earth. “Woman,” on the other hand, means “woven from man” saying they are “minds unable to comprehend all things because of being incomplete" Why would you say "woman" have "minds unable to comprehend all things because of being incomplete?" when Scripture says JESUS (aka Holy Spirit) would "lead and guide us (Not only "man!") into ALL truth" (John 14:26; 16:13)? GOD calls Himself "son of man" because HE came to "serve man" (Matthew 20:28) as sons do their fathers and HE was born of a "man" (Galatians 4:4)! What gave you these "twisted" ideas that are against Scripture (I Corinthians 10:21)?

      "...while eating a raw diet (fire wasn’t provided them) from every seed producing plants with its seeds producing the plants, in literal terms, berries, grains, fruit, nuts and vegetation." Although, possibly a much healthier diet (I wouldn't know!), JESUS told Peter in Acts 10:15 "What GOD hath cleansed, that call thou not common."

      "Since it is written “it is appointed unto man once to die and after that the judgment” death is the elimination of man’s wholeness to become woman." This verse alone disproves your theory of "reincarnation! I don't know what you mean "…death is the elimination of man's wholeness to become woman" because HE made them male and female but "born again" on earth "in his likeness" as Spirits; not genders, but Spirits! Then we die or "sleep" (I Thessalonians 4:13-17) awaiting to rise in Him as Spirits; not genders!

      "That means “the judgment” is woman’s metamorphosing back into man to enter everlasting life. Thus, what is generally called “death” is discarnating or shedding one’s body and it’s personality in preparation to take on another body’s personality. Metamorphosing brings to our remembrance our many previous incarnations (John 14:16 & 26). What makes you think "woman will metamorphosize back into "man" to enter everlasting life?" I Corinthians 15:50 says "...flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of GOD..." Thus, how can she "enter everlasting life?" Man, the only "death" on this earth is "dying to sin" after being "born again," then he/she becomes ONE with CHRIST in Spirit. Then we "die" physically ("sleep") awaiting His call (I Thessalonians 4) and our Spirit (not flesh) go with Him! Being "anointed" with the Holy Ghost "brings all things (WORD) to our remembrance (John 14 & 16), "not memory from reincarnations!" How do you think I can answer this senile HUB? He "brought all things to my remembrance" from His Word, not from a previous life!

      "The reason tree was used in “the knowledge of good and evil” metaphor is trees produce more fruit each succeeding season making the metaphor mean that as woman’s knowledge increases more “judgmental adjectives” will be developed." What are "you" talking? This is your pride and ego talking, not Scripture! "Trees" are a sign of "men" in Scripture (Mark 8:24) and once they ate, died spiritually because of disobedience and/or sin! Why do you keep referring to “woman” when “GOD is no respecter of person (Acts 2:34; Romans 2:11), yet you are? Is this not your pride and/or ego talking versus the WORD of GOD? Acts 2:17 and Joel 2:28 GOD said “in the last day, He would make your sons and “daughters” prophecy,” yet EGO TRIPPING MEN deny HIS WORD! I Corinthians 12: 7 says “But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to EVERY MAN (Woman too!) to profit withal.” Why then do you “men” keep saying “GOD said “Keep silent in the Church” when HE in fact said “Keep SILENCE (“Disruption” from occurring!) in the Church?” How can a woman “prophesy” in the last day if she keeps “silent?” How can she praise GOD? How can she “teach?” You guys are not in the Spirit but in the flesh! Who do you think carried the “FIRST MESSAGE” after Christ arose from the dead? If you don’t know let Scripture tell you – “A WOMAN!” Jesus told Mary Magdalene to “…go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father, and to my GOD, and your GOD” (John 20:17)! Did HE say “I need a man I can’t tell a woman nothing?” Get real, you “prideful” hypocrites! Galatians 3:28 says “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, NEITHER MALE NOR FEMALE: for ye are ALL ONE “in Christ Jesus.” So where does that leave you guys? Outside of Christ?

      “…the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” is a metaphor explaining as woman increased in knowledge they would judge more and more things good and evil. It was designed to cause woman to become mentally dead [unable to comprehend all things] and enter such a state of pride leading to their own destruction to fulfill the prophecies.” Yes, women (and men) are to “become mentally (Proverbs 3:5) dead,” and “Worship GOD in Spirit and in Truth” (John 4:23-24)! Until YOU learn to do that, who do you worship? If you continue in “your twisted thinking” a “state of pride will lead to your own destruction to fulfill the prophecies!”

      Proverbs 16:18 “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall!”
