I do not think I’m the only human on the Earth who has often wondered if, without the divine ban, Eve would have bitten the forbidden “apple”?
Probably not, definitely not! This fact it proves brilliantly that an imposed happiness is less than a chosen misfortune!
And going further, in Latin, the words for “apple” and “evil” are similar. “Mālum” is the word for “apple;” “mălum” is the word for “an evil or a misfortune.”
As a result of the apple’s association with Adam and Eve’s story, it has become a loaded symbol that represents, among other things, temptation, sin, immortality, seduction, the forbidden, and knowledge.
Now comes the question: Did we blame Eve for her culinary excess or because she wanted to overcome her ignorance status?
Whatever the answer, I find it terribly indecent.
