I have to tell one of the biggest misconceptions that we have just
forgot about is the first world war. I'm not talking about the world
war you learned about in school, because that war was from a western
perspective. The war I'm referring to is the first recorded war
between the first Man vs the serpent, talked about in the first
book of the bible.
The Fall of Man
1 Now the serpent was more crafty than
any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He
said to the woman, "Did God really say, 'You must
not eat from any tree in the garden'?"
2 The woman said to the serpent, "We may eat
fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, 'You must
not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden,
and you must not touch it, or you will die.' "
4 "You will not surely die," the serpent said
to the woman. 5 "For God knows that when you eat of
it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good
6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food
and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom,
she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who
was with her, and he ate it. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were
opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves
together and made coverings for themselves.
8 Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he
was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from
the LORD God among the trees of the garden. 9 But the LORD God called
to the man, "Where are you?"
10 He answered, "I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid
because I was naked; so I hid."
11 And he said, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you
eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?"
12 The man said, "The woman you put here with me-she gave me
some fruit from the tree, and I ate it."
13 Then the LORD God said to the woman, "What is this you have
The woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."
14 So the LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done
"Cursed are you above all the livestock
and all the wild animals!
You will crawl on your belly
and you will eat dust
all the days of your life.
15 And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring  and hers;
he will crush  your head,
and you will strike his heel."
16 To the woman he said,
"I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing;
with pain you will give birth to children.
Your desire will be for your husband,
and he will rule over you."
17 To Adam he said, "Because you listened to your wife and
ate from the tree about which I commanded you, 'You must not eat
"Cursed is the ground because of you;
through painful toil you will eat of it
all the days of your life.
18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
and you will eat the plants of the field.
19 By the sweat of your brow
you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,
since from it you were taken;
for dust you are
and to dust you will return."
ok now, what I'm about to say is going to really upset some people
but I'm going to say it anyway. The Serpent mentioned in the last
passage is a really snake. But obviously it held a different form
when it was originally designed. It looked different than the snakes
we see now. First of all it could talk to humans, so that means
it had advance mental capacities and vocal chords. Next, in the
KJV translation is was referred to as a beast of the field. Bad
translation. For the purpose of making sense, let's just say that
the serpent was reptilian man.
It's possible that the serpent looked something like this. In any
case he originally didn't crawl because crawling was a condition
he acquired after the curse.
not using this picture to scare anyone. I'm just attempting to portray
the truth as it seems to me. If I see smoke, I don't call it stream
or gas. If I see smoke I will I wall say "fire". I look
at things from a critical reality. Nothing more, nothing less. If
the the top selling book in the history of man says the serpent
could talk, well I'm going to assume it could. Why would I doubt
it? Do you know of any other trusted resource I could use. If so,
I would galdly read it as well. We shouldn't be afraid of the serpent
anyway. He was cursed above everything else on the planet to crawl
on his belly and eat dust. That doesn't sound very scary to me.
Oh yeah, plus we have the right to crush his head. It's sounds like
to me the serpent needs to be scared of us. Enough of the stupid
serpent. Let us move on.
