People want to be their own gods. Is that good or evil?
The real Original Sin, then and today, to most Christians, is based on this quote.
“For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil" (Gen. 3:5).
Jesus seems to have wanted this to happen, as that would make us his brethren.
Here is the real way to salvation that Jesus taught and that Gnostic Christians have embraced.
Matthew 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
Allan Watts explain those quotes in detail.
If Jesus wants us to know of good and evil, as a prerequisite to being born again as his brethren, it goes well with Jesus’ prediction as quoted above.
That may be why Christians sing that Adam’s sin was a happy fault and necessary to god’s plan.
I am not a literal reader of this myth, but this seems to make sense. It follows then that it makes sense for Adam to ignore Yahweh’s command not to gain an education.
Version 1: The children became judgemental and forgot how to love uncondtionally
Version 2: If you have a trouble pupil, make knowledge a taboo
Version 3: Now with the knowledge but still without intelligence humans set forth invoking technology and machines which destroyed them and their world
Version 4: They no longer had access to life now with the knowledge that they were fake.
Myself: I don't want to be a god; I just want clear and uninfluenced access to my instincts and intuition which might be borrowed from a higher intelligence.
Institutions and organizations will always have agendas that defy a higher wisdom (ie; Christianity back-handedly promoting conditional acceptance, elitism and encourages it's participants to ostracize those whom don't subscribe.)
