In a bit of revisionist theology, here’s something early scholars may have left out of the Bible, and it explains a lot:
And when God cast Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden, He handed them a manila folder, saying to Adam, “Take, for in this is a Google Maps printout of directions back to the garden for when thou have learned thy lesson.” And, while Adam looked at the map, turning it this way and that, God turned to Eve saying, “In this folder there is also an owner’s manual in which are clearly defined and indexed instructions for the care of your offspring. Copy it, PDF it, and make it available in print and by e-mail to all whom come after you. Follow these instructions closely for they are good.”
So Adam and Eve departed, looking for a nice affordable duplex to rent on a quiet street. And Adam, being the man, claimed he did not need directions, knowing exactly how to return to the garden. So he threw the manila folder in the trash, there being no recycle bins available at this time.
