If Adam and Eve didn’t know the difference between good and evil why was God so miffed at them when they ate the fruit? To be sure, they disobeyed a direct order but they could not have known it was wrong to do so. After all, God himself made them that way. In the modern justice system they would have undoubtedly got off for mental incompetency. Are we to lax or was God too strict?
What do we really want from religion? Palliatives? Therapy? Comfort? Do we want reassuring fables or an understanding of our actual circumstances? Dismay that the Universe does not conform to our preferences seems childish. You might think that grown-ups would be ashamed to put such thoughts into print. The fashionable way of doing this is not to blame the Universe -- which seems truly pointless -- but rather to blame the means by which we know the Universe, namely science.
