Don’t be sorry, I only remember it from a horizon (I think) program a couple of years ago and had to look up ‘immortal jellyfish’ to get the name. I pulled ‘Turritopsis nutricula’ from the first result. Had I looked to the right of the google page I would have spotted the classification.

Why would it be so hard to believe that there was once a tree that would have had fruit which would let humans live forever, if they ate it? The tree of life must have been a real tree.

because there has never been such a tree. there has never been such magic, there has never been such a break with the physical laws of the real world.

because your god has been proven false. because the bible stories are just old parables told by cult leaders.

any other reasons you need why it couldn't have been?

now can you show one credible reason why anyone would believe that proven myth?

"Must have been...?" You only say that because you are --->DELUSIONAL<-- and despite every mountain and mote of evidence you somehow still believe there "must have been" a tree of knowledge in a "must have been" garden of eden.

We have already talked about some of the known ones. There are some trees and the jellyfish that may be immortal.

Read Genesis. There was two trees, and one was a tree of life and the other one was the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

This old earth will burn and pass away, but a New Earth will have the tree of life which will be planted by a river.

is that the one that says toast will always land spread side down?

or is that the one that says "a small hole will quickly drain even the largest container...unless it was put there for drainage, in which case it will clog."...?
