So Adam and Eve ate an apple is NEITHER true NOR false since we don't know what it was.

So, anything new? The Armenian Bible, which is one off from the original Greek says that "The Apple" was a pomegranate. Also, it bust the myth of wearing "fig leaves". Anyone who has picked figs will understand this. If they used fig leaves, they would have scratched their "junk" till they bled out. It was banana leaves. Logical.

I still like the horns on the Viking hats even if they aren't factually correct! I knew about alcohol, toads, Napoleon and the apple.

If I remember correctly, according to Jewish scholars the fruit that Adam and Eve are were figa. They are the fig and immediately realized that they were naked and used fig leaves to cover themselves.

Re: Goldfish memory. When did you speak to a goldfish and determine this lack of memory? Re: People only use 10% of our brain. The fact of the matter is ultimately, we do not know what many parts of the human brain do. We the human race have NOT conquered the knowledge of knowing the answers to everything Also, let's face it. a great many people don't use even 10% Look at Donald Trump, he doesn't use any of his brain!

To Irma Rivera: I thought I read that Adam & Eve lived 900 hundred years and had many, many children. I copied the story off the internet a few years ago.

Hmm!! Somewhere along the line the thought was the forbidden fruit was an apple. In fact people thought that the bible mentioned the apple...?

John Platzer like the explanation say and I as a Bible reader can confirm , the Bible doesn't specified what kind of fruit Adam and Eve ate...it just says the forbidden fruit! God warned them that if they would eat it they will die...and God doesn't count days of 24 hour like human beings do, for Jehovah God a thousand years is like a day therefore Adam died writhing God's time frame.
