It is unfortunate how many Christians cling to some of the silliest and unsupportable Biblical myths, like "God" taking away the snakes legs as punishment for Eden.  This is about as realistic as kiplings story of how "Mr. Crocodile stretched Elephant child's nose into the first elephant's trunk".  For intelligent people who believe in God certain Biblical stories must be regarded as "mythology".  Not only from a scientific standpoint, such as the truth behind snakes and their legs, but also from a historical standpoint in that it is unquestionable that the Eden story saw its origins in a much earlier Eden story in Sumerian pagan religion. And we also see a snake tricking Gilgamesh out of his eternal life, and this story is much earlier than the bible.


so this is the stuff atheists say when the Bible says something supported by science?  No wonder there aren't as many of them as there are Christians...

Ignatius to the Magnesians: "It is therefore fitting, that we should not only be called Christians, but be so.
