Inconsistencies in the Creation Remember the story of creation you learned in Bible School God created light and darkness earth and sky water and land the sun and the moon the birds and the beasts Along with them came man Adam the man got lonely so out of Adam God took a rib and formed Eve the first woman As they lived in the Garden of Eden they were told not to eat the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge as God warned them however they were both tempted by the serpent to do so and both sinned Remembering the story from childhood and even through adolescence I always thought it was just an illustration of the story of creation a simple tale to explain the forming of the world and man However upon careful examination of the story it becomes a complex weaving of the interpretation of different authors and their view of weaknesses and desires as applied to men and women Genesis states that the serpent tempted Eve with the fruit first even though Adam accompanied her at the time In conventional society the male has always been seen as the dominant one However the fact that Eve was approached instead of Adam contradicts what would normally be expected The female has traditionally been seen as the more desiring cunning sexual being Her want for power is perhaps what made her more vulnerable to the serpents talk of being more like God Adams weakness was one of pure love and devotion to his wife once she offered the forbidden fruit to Adam he could not resist for his desire to please Eve far exceeded Gods warning The punishments bestowed upon the two by God were surely appropriate because Eve had been the first to taste of the fruit it would cause her pain through childbirth And because Eve had tempted Adam in turn she would be forced to serve under her
