GUEST,Alan BS: Adam and Eve, the Real Story (116* d) RE: BS: Adam and Eve, the Real Story 15 Jan 11

Nothing like a forum commenting on creationism for seeing straw men being so authoritatively knocked down!

Going back to the original post, if you actually read the relevant passage it's pretty obvious that God had no objection to Adam & Eve's nakedness. In fact, He sounds pretty miffed when they say they hid because of it. "So - who told you you were naked?" Look around - ain't no one but the serpent could have said it. Whether they were were real or just symbolic, the serpent was no friend to the couple. Can you trust what the serpent says about clothing?

So from God's viewpoint, nakedness is fine. The problem is that mankind has swallowed and passed on the serpent's viewpoint that it's dirty, immoral, etc etc, and to their shame pretty much every religious body has outdone each other in agreeing with the serpent rather than God.

As someone said, "if we were meant to go about naked, then we wouldn't be born with any clothes on."
