The talking serpent was Satan, not simply a "talking snake" as the athitards want to make it out to seem.

The babble says a snake, what do you say?
The Bible says serpent, not snake.

Either way, this serpent had intimate knowledge of Creation that even Adam & Eve didn't know. The serpent was Satan.

Deal with it.

Genesis isn't talking about a literal snake. It is Satan in the form of a snake, which is why the serpent has knowledge that God has.
Satan is called a serpent three times in the book of Revelation, 12:9, 12:15, 20:2.

Jesus also calls the pharisees serpents and snakes. Want to know why?

SERPENT WAS AN INSULT WHEN THE NEW TESTAMENT WAS WRITTEN.

The Bible not once says, "The serpent in the Garden of Eden is Satan." Any assertion that it does is false.

Yes, I'm pro-gun.

Guns aren't bad, people are.

If you're gonna blame guns for murder, then you better be ready to blame a pencil for the misspelled word.....

This conversation is crazy.

Think about it. Snakes dont talk.

The OT has been disproven for at least 150 years. We all know there was no garden of eden. This jewish creation and flood myths are exactly that, myths.

Lets live our lives as sane people without the need to believe in fairy tales and superstition.

Revelation 12:9 (again)

Revelation 12:9 (KJV)
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

You are correct, snakes don't talk - Satan does, in whatever form he's in.

Nothing in the OT has been disproven, nothing. You are mistaken.

So satan is a shape shifter.

And he can transform into a snake.

With vocal cords.

And this makes perfect sense to you.

Did you read what I said?

When the NT was written, "Serpent" was an insult. Jesus himself calls the pharisees serpents. Does that mean they were in the Garden, too?

Thats a funny joke.

"The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty, ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully."

So, he didn't "transform" into a snake? How was he one, then? Does he have a snake-clone or something like that?

You believe a lot of things, most just turn out to be nothing more than you own interpretation

Forgive me if I am wrong and we have been through this several times before but I am certain that Genesis was written sometime around 6000 years ago (according to Hebrew scholars) and Revelation was written around the time of Flavius Domitian Caesar some 4000 years LATER

So as previously I will ask was it hindsight or were those later authors blessed with the skill of time travel?

However in the babble it DOES NOT say ANYWHERE that the serpent was satan – NOT ANYWHERE

I don't think Ar Ar knows what "transform" means.
