Did the curse on the serpent happen immediately, or did it occur in the first generation of offspring? Since we don't know for sure let's consider what God said to Adam about the tree of knowledge.
God cursed the serpent to go on it's belly, therefore it can't have been on it's belly. However, did it's legs immediately disappear? Probably not.
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.
An outcome of the theological spaghetti syndrome is that Satan gets the blame for everything, even when it's physically impossible to have been at the crime scene. The anointed cherub is a good example.
We (that's me and the Holy spirit) refute the widely held belief that Satan was in the garden of Eden and that he brought about the fall of man. It fails to take into account the relationship between cause and effect.
Christians don’t like Matty’s Paradigm because we have to refute some things that they believe about the Bible, and show how modern theology is a product of spaghetti syndrome.
The fall of man was an effect. The cause was disobedience. We're going to develop a coherent narrative around the harmonization of scripture with science because we understand the relationship between cause and effect.
