“Either they had ethical knowledge prior to eating the forbidden fruit, or they did not.

      If they did, then it doesn’t make sense why it would be called the tree of knowledge of good and evil; and the story fails to explain the origin of RESPONSIBILITY.

      If they did not have prior ethical knowledge, then the name of the tree makes sense, and the origin of responsibility is explained. But it doesn’t make sense that Adam and Eve should be punished. They didn’t know right from wrong until after the fact, so they were not RESPONSIBLE.!”
