Is There A God?
No. People create gods and goddesses. We switch from one god to another over time. At some point in time no matter how big a religion is and no matter how certain people are that their god is the only god that should be worshipped, some other religion and some other god eventually overthrows it.
One of the reasons we create gods and goddesses is to motivate us to be good. Without a god, we feel we have no reason to be good. Being good just for the sake of being good is not enough for us. We need to be motivated and so we create a god who punishes us for being bad and rewards us for being good. Without the fear of god's wrath or the expectation of heaven motivating us to be good, deep down we don't believe we would be good.
The other reason people create gods and goddesses is because we need to believe there is more to life than there is. No matter what god we choose to worship, they exist to remind us that this life is temporary and that we will continue to exist after death whether it is in a heaven or a hell, our life will go on.
The story of Adam and Eve is a warning to women. The story of Adam and Eve is a very important story in human history. It is a myth but it is an important myth.
God created Adam, god forbade Adam from eating from the tree of good and evil. God created Eve. God did not forbid Eve from eating from the tree. When Eve said the fruit was forbidden, she was retelling what she was told by Adam. The Serpent tells Eve the fruit is not forbidden because it was not forbidden to her. It was only forbidden to Adam but Eve in her weakness, shared the fruit with Adam. After she did this, God appeared and punished them. Eve ate from the fruit but God did not appear to punish her. It was only after she shared the fruit with Adam that they were punished.They were driven out of Eden, never to return.
This myth is an important one because it tells the story of Eve's submission to Adam. It relates how women gave their power to men and as a result were forced to leave Eden.
