Inheritance From God

Eve’s innocent bite

Made bad apples of us all

For generations

“Original thought is like original sin: both happened before you were born to people you could not have possibly met.”

Fran Lebowitz

Eve and Adam disobeyed God and took that luscious bite out of an apple that created the first sin in this world. But how did they know that disobeying God was good or evil without taking that first bite? And didn’t God have a little evil within himself to test his first ignorant humans like that? Dirty little devil. Maybe we got it wrong, and God created Original Sin.

All We Are Is Dust In the Wind

A dust in the wind

Naming all of god’s creatures

A pain in the ribs

The Lord made Adam, the Lord made Eve; he made ’em both a little bit naive. 

Yip Harburg

God created Adam from the magical dust of the ground. Before God created his helper, he told Adam to name all the creatures on the planet. Can you imagine naming all the animals on earth? It wasn’t until he completed this monumental task that God tore through his chest, pulled out a rib, and created Eve.
