Nutria,  Great post,  certainly a lot to think about,  but as far as number
three I would have to disagree in regard to man becoming bestial; It seems
more the opposite;  by eating of the fruit of knowledge,  humanity separated
itself from the beasts,  and the paradise of ignorance and innocence that
they live in.  Of course, this abandonment of innocence is what allows  the
potential for both good and evil.
