No. The answer is that it makes no logical sense, whether you believe the stories in Genesis or not.
Genesis calls it a serpent, then clearly God curses whatever it was into a snake.
It makes no sense whatsoever to curse something to be what it already is.
Imagine if God cursed you to be a human.... You'd be like "Oh gee, God. Damn, that sucks."
Actually, he did, did he not?

Worldfamous is the one of the boy with the finger in the dyke.
Another one we learned in history was that the shore was inhabited by the Kaninefaten, blokes dressed in rabitfur. konijn-kanin-rabbit.
Well they never existed.
Maybe those incongruencies teaches a person to be cool-headed when it comes to any information handed down of yore.
But Mac if we had had any of those Kaninefaten i'll bet they lived on periwinkles...ooh and rabbits ofcourse with a bit of seasalad.
Hehehe.

Yes, all of Western Europe has a lot of myths.

We have the Tuatha de Dannán, the Fir Bolg, the Fenian cycle, the Ulster cycle - I'm possibly the last generation that grew up with them.

Shame, that.

All that is said is buffoonery
1. Abiogenesis! I ask for an explanation of how it worked and might get the we don't know, but we know it worked answer. That's not science ,that's faith, but it has to be since nobody has a clue, yet that sure doesn't slow down the lies told to try and defend it.
We have the discovered the key to life, Aura
we know how life began...Sucking bone
life is simple chemistry.. Dude
and there are many more!
on and on ,nothing but lies. Why?
to defend the indefensible. That's why
OK, you have officially claimed the Stupid Crown from Jim Ryan.

As you have been told before, whether god, aliens or simply nature was the cause, once the was no life and then there was. Even the bible agrees with this. Abiogenesis. Or biopoiesis, if you prefer. Simple concept but evidently still to complicated for your tiny intellect.

Keep it up. You can still take the Village Idiot title away from him.

No, you misunderstand. Satan himself was not cursed, whatever the creature was that Satan was posing as was cursed - into a snake. As a reminder to us all of the treachery that Satan is.
that doesn't say that that was the serpent in the garden of eden...

why would your god punish an animal when it wasn't its fault?

oh yeah, the god of the bible is a huge prick, a jealous, vindictive, petty asshole...and you worship the jerk that would be in jail if he actually existed in today's world...

that's hilarious...

Yah, where I live, we have an infestation of Cane Toads (Bufo marinus) which pack toxins in glands under their skins. These toxins can be fatal if ingested. Kills dogs and cats - and some kids have been getting high by licking the things.

You do realise that none of your explanation is actually in the Bible don't you?

Nice to see you accept the serpent was a snake.

i thought that was a myth...wrong species of Bufus, and you have to dry and smoke the toxin they give off to get high, and you get very, very high off it. it is a desert variety of the Bufus species, according to Wade Davis, the ethnobotonist who wrote "serpent and the rainbow"....

As always you thought wrong. The cane toad has poison glands, and the tadpoles are highly toxic to most animals if ingested.

Oh and it is a member of the genus Rhinella but was formerly in the genus Bufo.

have you read any of Wade Davis? in shadows in the sun he explains why Bufus marianus cannot get you high by licking it, but he heard of some guy out in the desert of Arizona that 'smoked toad' so he checked him out. he dries the secretions off the toad, then smokes it.

davis described it as off the earth into the black sun kind of high....not for the inexperienced or weak of heart and mind, he said...

Even the oldest of mountain ranges that we see on the Earth today are much younger than the Earth itself. In fact younger on the order of 4 billion years. Now there may be some roots of ancient mountain ranges left, but the actual ancient mountains have long ago been eroded back to the sea.
Yes I agree. But the theory still stands that rains in the earth's infancy globally flooded this earth and we have no evidence of it. But scientists are more than sure it took place though their is no evidence.

the bible says it didn't rain until the noachian flood, so we know that can't be true...
