Book: Alternative Genesis by Yosef Albriccategories: Book, Christianity, Alternative, Religious Comment, Enoch, Adam Eve, Genesis
Yosef Albricabout this book: What happens if we remove religious judgment from story of Adam and The Woman in the Garden of Eden? What we are left with is 'Do not eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil, an instruction not to judge.
There is nothing in Genesis about original sin or any other religious connotations. Genesis continues with if use judgment we become as Gods, and this is perfectly correct. As soon as we bring in judgment we set ourselves up as God others.
This becomes a major problem because we all become Gods with our judgment and the result according to Genesis is that we run around saying 'It wasn't my fault, it was his/her fault.'
As a last resort we can always blame Snake (The Devil made me do it).
Alternative Genesis contends that the incident in the Garden of Eden has nothing to do with religion. Remove the judgment and it becomes a warning about what happens when we introduce judgment to our way of thinking.
Alternative Genesis also gives a commentary on The Book of Enoch.
