So how did Eve disobey God if she didn't yet know what evil was? Isn't disobedience to God considered a sin?
One might say that she was ignorant (like mentioned in a previous post), but that's certainly not fair. What psycho would punish their child for doing something wrong out of innocence?
Especially since god is all-powerful and all-knowing. There is no way he can also be considered loving or caring, after what he did to Adam and Eve. Did he have to put that tree in the garden to "test" his new creations, knowing they would fail?
That means god: a) set everything up in advance so Eve would have no choice but to disobey him, b)knew in advance that she would disobey him, and c)imposed a newly invented punishment that was horribly unfair and way out of proportion to the misdeed. None of which he had to do if he was really all-powerful.
It's like betting a friend $100 that he will not say any curse words for one hour, and then tricking him into walking barefoot across a dark room with tacks all over the floor. He steps on the tacks and yells, "SH!T" at which you jump out and say, "Gotcha! Gimme the hundred bucks, plus the $500 cost of cleaning your blood off my carpets!" Any reasonable person would say that, even though you technically won the bet, it was an unfair setup and that you were a big, fat, evil, scheming, psycho a$$hole.
So, yes, god is either one big, fat, evil, scheming, psycho a$$hole.
Or better yet, he does not exist.
