Is the story of Adam and Even real...or allegory?
Still boils down to Voltaire (who did not, historically, repent on his deathbed):
If there were no God, it would be necessary to invent one.
If someone leaves a peach pie.......
No you have not!
The only difference in this scenario is that your friend doesn't know you actually will eat the pie. God knew Adam and Eve would eat the fruit. BUT if He had removed the tree he would have removed their CHOICE to decide what they wanted. If He had removed the tree He would have made them virtual robots. They would have no choice. They would have just as they were. Naked and walking in the garden with the animals and that's pretty much it.
YES! I HAVE!
