The Naughty Bits

I was thinking about Adam and Eve the other day. You know how the story goes ...

There they were, Adam and Eve going around happily in the Garden of Eden totally naked and not worrying about anything, except perhaps getting too close to the cactus, or standing near a hot radiator or oven.

Then one day they meet a snake!

Now I don't know about you, but if I were naked and met a snake I'd quickly cover up my bits in case he took a bite.  

If the snake actually talked to me ... well ... I'd probably poop in my non-existing pants rather than engage in conversation with him.

Anyway ... what I don't understand is, after they ate the forbidden fruit, how did Adam and Eve know which are the naughty bits they should cover?

Why not cover their knees for instance? Or their elbows?

Can you imagine? If they'd covered their heads instead; today we'd all be going around naked wearing our underpants on our heads!

    Whenever I tried to discuss that so called apple of Adam and Eve with my father-in-law, God bless his soul, he would simply say,

    Victor! The problem was not with the apple but The pair on the ground...

    Go Figure!...lol

    God bless

  2. I think it's the nature of the knowledge that has seeped in. The knowledge wasn't about knee and ankle joints, and how those bones and tendons and muscles come together. It was about the birds and the bees and the anatomy that goes along with it. Do you know what I mean? ;)

    1. You make a good point, Manny. But you confuse me even more. Are you telling me that had they not sinned they would not have had the knowledge "about the birds and the bees and the anatomy that goes along with it"? If this is so, then had they not sinned they would not have reproduced and there would not have been you and I? Who would then Blog to whom?

      God bless.

  4. Maybe, because those were the "bits" that were "different" between one another...they both had elbows, they both had knees...why stare at those bits?
    I will bet they were self conscious about their differences...different bits get covered.

    :o)

    1. That's a very good point Hand-Maid. Thank you.

      (Thinks) It follows that nudist camps are places where people go to air their differences.

      God bless.

    2. I never quite understood nudist camps. I suppose people keep walking into trees and things because they're not watching where they're walking!

      God bless.

  5. Hi Victor! You make an excellent point. I do like the point Hand-Maid makes though. That's a good explanation. I wonder what I would have chosen to cover if I was Eve?
    Blessings,

    1. Good point Ceil. What else would people have covered if they were Eve?

      My mind is doing somersaults right now!

      God bless.
