Why Did She Have to Eat the Apple?

I often pondered not only why Eve ate the forbidden fruit, but what actually happened in the moments immediately following The Fall.  All religions, monotheistic and polytheistic alike, have oral and written traditions on humanity’s separation  from the Divine.  Most of the ancient civilizations like the Sumerians, Egyptians and Babylonians told stories of man’s creation…

Stop Projecting!
