Adam And Eve - Right And Wrong

One day I started thinking about Adam and Eve. Thinking about right and wrong. Now, I asked myself a question:

Didn't Adam and Eve know the difference between right and wrong when they were told by the serpent to eat the fruit off the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil?

This leads me into the next question is just thought of:

Were they that easily influenced that they ate the fruit off the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil without thinking twice?

God did tell them specifically not to eat the fruit off the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

Genesis 2:16-17 says:

"16And the LORD God commanded the man, 'You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17but you must not eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die.'"

See God explicitly says not to eat the fruit off that tree, but they did anyways. Did they know the consequences of their actions? Sure, as God said point blank what would happen. But they did it anyways.

Was the temptation of seeing if they could get away with it too strong that they thought they would do it anyways?

It seems as though Adam and Eve trusted the serpent because he seemingly pitched a good deal to Adam and Eve.

In Genesis 3:4-5:

4"You will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman. 5"For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."

Was being able to see the reason that why they trusted the serpent?

Some signs point to yes. But was it truly worth it? Did disobeying God make them feel like a badass? I doubt they thought: "We are sure showed God!"

S0me signs point to the fact that they didn't know what they were doing is wrong as they didn't have knowledge like we do now to make the connection and see what we are doing is wrong. But you always here about Adam and Eve having the freewill to choose. If that is the case wouldn't the have just chose to not eat that fruit off the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Didn't the consequences of God's wrath pop in their minds be a factor in deciding against eating the forbidden fruit? Afterall, God in the Old Testament was more wrathful than in the New Testament or now.

This something I have been thinking about. Maybe someone can make sense of it all.

Feel Like Recording

I haven't done recording in a while and so I got the urge to do some recording. I will keep you posted as to what I got done. Maybe I might record "What People Do For Beauty" or "Try" or "I Remember" or "Irish Spring." But keep watching my MySpace page for new songs posted.

Is St. Patrick's Day Pointless?

Most people who are non-Christian make a big deal about St. Patrick's Day. They feel they have to get drunk whether they are Irish or not. I myself have never seen what the big deal is with St. Patrick's and the fascination with getting drunk? Do most people not realize that St. Patrick is a religious figure in the realm of Christianity.

I find it ironic they are using a Christian's saints birthday as an excuse to drink and get drunk. There are plenty of other days that people can do that on. Why does it have to be one specific day. Plus he is not even Irish. St. Patrick is Welsh. But most don't see that.

People go out, get drunk, than have a bad hangover the next day. Sure I like to drink every now and then, but some people make a big deal about having to go out on St. Patrick's Day and a get tanked. Again I ask, why do you need a certain day to go out and drink?

I feel as though aside from the Christianity aspect of St. Patrick's Day, is using this day as an excuse to drink is pointless? I guess maybe I don't get it. But I feel it is pointless. Maybe someone can explain to me the whole point. Is a hangover worth it to drink on one day? Isn't that what Fridays, Saturdays, birthdays, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve, New Years Day, Thanksgiving, and other such days for?

Andrew "Test" Martin Dead At 33

I am sure most wrestling fans and people browsing news in general have heard that former WWF/WWE and TNA star Andrew "Test" Martin has died. According to reports, Test died in his Tampa, Florida condo. The reports didn't say how he died when the story first broke and the death has yet to be confirmed at this time.

I am going to say that I was never a Test fan, but to say this isn't fucked up is a mistake. But people are blaming Vince McMahon already based on the fact that McMahon has been associated with steroids in the past. That is bullshit because we don't even know if steroids were even the cause Test's death. Sure steroids were the cause of many wrestlers deaths, but that doesn't mean that is the case with Test. But people are going to assume that based on his size. That is bullshit and like someone in a chatroom named Scott said that maybe Test actually worked out.

That is sad the mentality of a lot of pro wrestling fans, especially the hardcore, unknowledgable, WWE marks or fans if you will. I am a WWE fan, but I not a dumb WWE fan. I don't play into the bullshit that Vince McMahon throws at you. I don't automatically assume that Vince McMahon is behind all deaths associated with former WWWF/WWF/WWE talent. Some die from heart attacks with being too obsese such as Rodney "Yokozuna" Anoa'i. Some have died from dieases like cancer such as John "Earthquake" Tenta. But again people automatically assume a drug, alcohol, or steroid related death.

If this does turn out to be a steroid related death, this will give more fuel to Colin Cowherds' fire. If you remember, he ripped on Eddie Guerrero on his radio show "The Herd with Colin Cowherd" on ESPN Radio because steroids played a part in his death.

A fews final thoughts about this. Here is a sobering thought, over 60, give or take, wrestlers in the last ten years have died before they reach the age of 50. Test just adds to the growing number. Finally Test was only 33. Sure a lot of people at that age did, but Test had a lot of life left to live.

Yes I have been inspired to write a song. Thanks to Shawn, someone who I went to college with, was the source of this inspiration. He wrote a note on Facebook which inspired me. The song is entitled "I Remember." I am still working on the lyrics. So stay tuned for that.
