The Tree of Knowledge

But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

(Genesis 2:17) KJV

Creation was corrupted before Adam and Eve sinned in the garden of Eden. It was created in a corrupted state in order to manifest free will. We can prove it using a process we call deductive questioning.

We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.

Matty’s Razor

Deductive Question 1

  • Question:
    • IF God created a perfect world which got ruined by accident,
    • THEN why was the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the garden of Eden?
  • Answer:
    • God didn’t create a perfect world.

The opposing natures of light and darkness, good and evil, begins with protons and neutrons and nucleosynthesis on the first day, it has nothing to do with Adam and Eve’s disobedience. Here’s another question:

Faith is believing in something that you can’t see, because of evidence.

– Faith, definition

Deductive Question 2

  • Question:
    • WHY did God put the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the garden,
    • IF he knew that eating the fruit would ruin his creation?
  • Answer:
    • Eating the fruit didn’t ruin God’s creation.

Adam and Eve were the first to sin, that means disobey God, but their ability to sin was part of their nature. That’s why there was a tree of knowledge: God was being honest, true to his nature.

In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

(Titus 1:2) KJV

This third question establishes our premise that the world was created in a corrupted state.


  1. Call upon the name of Jesus Christ,
    • believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
  2. confess your sin.

Deductive Question 3

  • Question:
    • IF God’s perfect world wasn’t supposed to be corrupted, Plan A,
    • THEN was Christ’s death on the cross Plan B?
  • Answer:
    • God didn’t create a perfect world.

Sin isn’t an accident. The plan of redemption isn’t a contingency. The redemption of mankind isn’t Plan B, it’s the purpose of creation. Corruption is an inherent property of the material that this world is made of. It’s the reason why there was a tree of knowledge.
