Fascinating. I was under the impression that Yahweh created everything, at least in the beginning. So I'd supposed he created Adam, Eve, the serpent, and Eden, for definite.
Yes, and then he rested from creating. Nothing is said about him creating every thought and desire. What you are saying is that they were programed like computers from start to finish. Only pure speculation can cause one to draw that conclusion. Please tell me when Jehovah created desire and what evidence do you have?
So Yahweh did NOT create their desires? So please tell me where they came from?
But that's not the point. Yahweh set up every starting parameter. Every variable in he environment, every twig, every leaf, every stone, was as HE set it. The thoughts in Adam's head when he first awoke were the ones Yahweh put there, his level of hunger, his wishes, his dreams, all were set one day 1 preceisely by Yahweh......unless you suggest they are not?
So tell me, Jst. In an environment where every pebble was placed specifically by Yahweh, where every condition was set by him, where man's first thought and nature was laid down precisely by him.....how could their desires go in any direction BUT ones that followed from the way he set things up?
Or turn it the other way, if you prefer. Take the first "wrong" thing that happened, and trace it back. The first "wrong" came from a thing, a being, and event, that was cause by the event before that, and the event before that.....and we can trace it all back to the way Yahweh set things up. Effect follows cause, does it not? So by all means, tell me where the "wrong" desire sprang from, in a world createdentirely, carefully, and specifically, by Yahweh?
