I have been sick recently, and during my sickening stupor I was thinking about Adam and Eve (and even the myth of Lilith being before Eve, and an equal to Adam), and the "Tree of Knowledge". You know, just going over the stories in my head, and thinking about the whole "original sin" stuff - and then it hit me, like a bolt of lightning (ok, maybe not that dramatic, but you get the idea).
God told Adam, and Adam told Eve, not to partake of the Tree of Knowledge; and if they did, they would not be immortal, and would have to "work the earth" to grow food, and would be cast from Eden.
So, basically God was saying that KNOWLEDGE IS EVIL. Being intelligent and informed is a "sin". Simply put, "ignorance is bliss".
There it is, right there in the first (two) books of God's Word. Knowledge is evil. Being smart is evil. You need to be an ignorant, pliant, sheepish fuck to have god bestow blessings on you. Get too smart, and God gets pissed, and casts you out of paradise.
So, God hates an informed populace. God hates smart people.
Glad he's a myth, or we'd all be fucked.
(BTW, is this like a "duh!" thing, and I just failed to make the connection? Or have I maybe thought about this in a different way? Just curious...)
