    Nothing died that day because Adam and Eve never lived.

    Hello
    While I were surfing a universialist web site, I found a article about Man in the garden, It said man could see better than the people's sight now and that man could teleport in the garden. That in the pre flood world, people could control animals with their minds :eek:mg: That site said that Noah used animals to help him build the ark.
    Isn't it strange? Post your thoughts on this matter
    God love you forever

    Man's spiritual childhood "died" (ended) as he attained knowledge of good and evil and transcended his human-animal nature, becoming a true Human. God saw this and was pleased; he had created the world for man to lord over, and now man had the knowledge he needed to take on this responsibility, the knowledge to go forth into the world without destroying it, the knowledge to take on the responsibility of protecting and nurturing the world.

    Unfortunately spiritually man is no more mature than a teenager, one moment accepting knowledge and behaving like a responsible adult, the next rejecting this gift and neglecting his responsibility as he pursues his own ambitions (and in the meantime doing whatever he damn well pleases with the world).

    Human one moment, human-animal the next, man has yet to completely grow up.

    ****** In the Garden man was LESS evolved spiritually than he is now. Teleportation, rapture with animals--these things are more likely charactoristics of a spiritually evolved true Human, not the spiritually devolved human-animal that ran around in the Garden.

    I doubt it. Why would God create man's body to be "perfect" (Jesus is the most perfect man there ever was, no?) but leave his soul and mind immature? More likely that God created man to be imperfect and gradually transcend this imperfection.

    Jesus as the ultimate dreamboat isn't the most popular theory, I don't think, LOL.
