Well, first off, I was raised without religion or spirituality, and I have taken a strong interest in them, almost obsessive, in the past few years, so I didnt really grow up with a religious bias. Anyways, regarding the story of adam and eve, it makes a lot more sense if you switch the role of god and the devil in that story. Think about it, god is not the author of confusion, why would he withold the knowledge from us? So we can never die and be mindless drones? Im sure thats why god created us. It would make more sense if the devil didnt want us to hold that knowledge, of our spiritual nature, to keep us from having a personal relationship with god and learning what we can do. If all the core teaching of every religion is that we are divine beings, then why does almost every religion tell us not to dabble in the spiritual? People just dont want to lose their power... you cant rely on other people to bring god to you, you have to bring yourself to god

I accept this debate.

Definitions

The story of Adam and Eve- Genesis 1-3 concerning Adam and Eve

Backwards- opposite to the correct way of thinking or doing something

In this debate I shall argue that it is not the story that is backwards, but rather people's interpretation of the story that is backwards.

I look forward to an interesting debate.

Well, Pro obviously has the BoP here, so until he makes a proper argument and refutes my point that it is not the story that is backwards but rather the interpretation, the resolution is negated.
