If Humans Had Obeyed In The Garden Of Eden…

This NSFW video from DarkMatter2525 makes a ton of absurdities from the Garden of Eden story clear: I have also written, albeit much less entertainingly, a lot about my own thoughts on what is wrong with the Adam and Eve story, even were we to read it non-literally, like many theists who would just wave [Read More...]
