As you can see, God had to be absent as he lost track of Where A & E were.
This belies what you put.
No. This is like me and you being in a three story house and you yelling from the bottom floor: "KM where are you?". This doesnt make you absent. This doesnt mean that if I sought to ask you something, that I couldnt because you're "absent". Nothing in Genesis says He left or returned to the garden of Eden. Therefore, theres nothing in the story that suggests He was absent.A & E could not desire anything without the knowledge of good and evil. They were blind and stupid before they ate and to not eat would have been the epitome of stupidity. And God asking them to stay mentally blind was quite wrong.
Do you agree?
The problem we have here is that your opening post said that Adam and Eve were punished for seeking knowledge (of course by way of the tree). Yet when I ask you why they didnt go to the Creator of everything for they knowledge they sought and not the tree, you start changing things. So I ask again, why do you think it would be smarter for them to go to the ONE thing that were told not to for knowledge, when they could have easily went to the Creator who was amongst them for the knowledge?
I dont believe they were blind/stupid either. I just think they were supposed to grow into things and not simply have it all at once..
I guess that you do not recognize God to be Omni-present as scriptures say he is.
Let's go with your view of God being with A & E all the time.
Why would God let Satan or the talking serpent tempt Eve?
Why would he let Eve give of the tree to Adam?
If a good parent, God would have certainly intervened. Right?
