Alex the African Parrot could talk and reason. Sorry to have deflated your ego. I just goes with the territory.<quoted text>
This is the response I get? You are comparing a talking serpent, speaking in a language understandable by a human, telling a human to do something that the human was told not to do - although the human in question did not know right from wrong so why she got the blame for eating the fruit without having the knowledge that what she was doing was wrong is beyond me...I think it was a set-up. But that is for another time.
So your example of a modern primates being taught sign language and birds mimicking humans is your final answer?
And a salt formation as well?
Please don't even think my words above are to be construed that I have any belief whatsoever that a talking snake or Eve ever existed but for in a book of fiction.
Have a great evening!
