In Book of Genesis, God wasn't angry at Adam and Eve for eating the forbidden fruit, he was angry that they didn't own up to it. He didn't banish them for disobeying him, he banished them not taking responsibility or ownership of their actions, amirite?

If they did not have the knowledge of good and evil prior to eating the fruit, then how were they supposed to know that disobeying God was a bad thing?

@Madie If they did not have the knowledge of good and evil prior to eating the fruit, then how were they supposed to know...

That's always been my big problem with the story - it's like disowning your baby because they touched the stove. Yes you said "No don't touch that it's hot" but It's not like the little bugger even knows what the concept of burnig heat is.

Irrelevant to the discussion. If you don't believe in God or this specific story, it's about why the character named God punished Adam and Eve, not does he exist?

This was a quiz question in my western civilization class. The question was what was original sin (according to Genesis) and the correct answer was disobedience.
