Having read David's most recent book I wanted to try and make some connection in regards to what he is saying, and what the 'fall' of man actually was.   According to the biblical narrative Man was in Eden and 'fell' by yielding to the temptation of the Serpent, representing the Devil, who told Eve that if she ate of the forbidden fruit she would become 'like the Gods' knowing the difference between good and evil.   This is an analogy that needs a lot of unpacking and clarify
