There isn't much originality in the bible. Check out the story of hercules and compare it to the story of jesus.


Yah...I think that most of the old testament was people realizing that they could preserve knowledge beyond a single generation by writing. That's why there are so many begets and strange common sense.

And the Hercules story shares an amazing number of similarity for earlier Mesopotamian myths. As for the whole garden of eden bit, gardens, snakes, trees and choosing funny apples is even more common.

Does the bible not only say fruit? i don't remember reading apple although that seems to be what everyone talks about.

Snow white revolved around an apple too and some how everybody knows that it's a fairy tale.
