    I think every time you read or hear this scripture read the blame always fall on Eve, I don't believe that the serpent could have gotten close to her if Adam was around more and I think that the serpent came around daily charming her til she fell for what he was saying yes I agree she was wrong. The same way the serpent charm Eve she did it to Adam and I don't believe it was done in one day

    All languages were created by God. There was a time when mankind spoke only one language. It wasn't until mankind became too curious about God and heaven. Mankind's decided to build a tower towards heaven. God saw what man was doing, God said mankind should not know everything. So God broke up the languages. Mankind separated to different parts of the world. Read- The Tower of Bibel

    Psalms 104:29 Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust. Ecclesiastes 3:20 All go unto one place all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again. Ecclesiastes 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. Jeremiah 32:27 Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
