Serpent vs. Snake

And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

(Genesis 3:14-15) KJV

There weren’t any snakes before the fall of man. It’s a logical conclusion which is deduced by the application of cause and effect, logic and reason. Look at it this way, you can’t curse a snake to be limbless, it already is.

One way to deduce things about the serpent in the garden of Eden is to look at the curse which was placed on it. If the serpent was cursed to go on its belly, then it can’t have been on its belly before the curse. We discussed the possible nature of the Eden serpent on June 26th.

What was the serpent in the garden of Eden? We propose that the serpent in Genesis 3 was a bipedal reptilian humanoid.

Why was putting enmity between the woman and the serpent a curse? Was the serpent formerly attractive and beautiful such that Eve sought her out to have a conversation? Enmity would cause the opposite: the woman would now avoid any contact with serpents.

July 1st – The Fall

The fall of man was an effect. The cause was disobedience. We can harmonize scripture with science using cause and effect.
