How was the Garden of Eden paradise, when it had a demon in it?


Can you really consider the Garden a paradise? In the bible, God never warned his children that there was evil in the garden. It is like saying to a child don't touch the stove, and not tell them about the very hot burner. Of course the child will be curious and like most children will find out the hard way. A good parent will also look out for the children while they are young to train them. God didn't do anything of the things. Would a human parent put a cobra into a children's sand box? You would expect a higher intelligence from a God. What does paradise look like from that Goc?

    The bibles are only stories at best. And a snake doesn't talk, and the tree didn't have any knowledge, as Adam and Eve weren't any smarter after eating the apple. People are basically evil, and nothing in history has shown any change.

    Believers think the stories are literal, so it makes sense to demolish them in the literal sense; there's no fun in simply saying "It's just an allegory," because as true as that is, it doesn't give me the satisfaction of watching them squirm.

    Are you saying that if you told your new to the world child not to touch something that would be good parenting? That it is the same thing as teaching your child?

    The Serpent posed a real threat, the loss of paradise. How can paradise include the serpent?

    As far as science, the BBT is just a theory, and it really doesn't matter how the universe started because we can't change it.
