They have eaten of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil in violation of the first commandment of God in the Garden of Eden. Pretending to be like God entails arrogance, conceit and so an utter lack of humility. Such pretense is dishonest in the extreme, and leads to personal and communal disintegration and alienation through attempts to control that which is not for humans to control. Rebellion against human finitude does not make humans like God, for such dishonest rebellion is not the key to transcendence of human limitations. Pretending not to be limited, does not lead to the transcendence of limitations. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
