Anyone care to speculate on what life would have been like if Adam and Eve had ignored the serpent or better still, crushed him like a bug? (Although, was the serpent on the ground originally - or cursed to slither around only after he’d tricked Eve?)
Adam and Eve would have had no knowledge of good or evil. Would all of their children lived in Eden? Or at this point, they were supposed to be fruitful and mulitply the whole world. (And would God have continued to “test” them periodically?)
Would a 10 Commandments have been necessary? How would the people have known right from wrong?
Did God give mankind the ability to read and write, or would they have had to develop that on their own? When would cities have sprung up,e tc.
