Well, I am not religious. However, I do like this story, and I've read the bible as well as Paradise Lost.
I think that God didn't mind that Eve took the fruit from the tree. I don't know if he wanted her to, so much as wondered if he had created something with so much free will that even he couldn't control her. I think that humans are that - something free and controlling of our own fates, and I think that if there is a God, he probably loves us just for that.
Then again, I don't think humanity has fallen, either. But, I like excitement and imperfection.
Eve screwed the pooch, Adam pointed the finger, God denounced His faith in humans, more or less, and decided to show us just how bad things could be.
So He made us wear clothes, take dumps, get sick, go through labor pains, live through famines, plagues, and natural disasters, etc.
Or you could just say that the one sin was on purpose (and worship Adam as a god for it) so that Jesus could serve His purpose... if you're totally Mormon.
God is all good. If He is good then by definition evil can't dwell with him. One sin is still sin and it separated us from Him. Rest assured though Christ redeems.
i have noticed you and you are really a non-believer when it comes to christianity......i advise you pick a bible,though big and there are a lot of word......read it....will help to answer most of your questions
how has humanity fallen. even as i type this, millions of people are doing great things in this world. we are becoming healthier, smarter and we live longer then we ever did. i'll call it the rise of humanity myself.
Humanity was perfect before the one sin, but that sin separated us from God. The only way for us to be reconnected with God is through a relationship with Jesus Christ. The reason that Jesus was not born of sin is because sin is passed down through the father. And the fact that Jesus was born of the virgin Mary means that sin was never passed down to him.
