    So, you don't like my version, but don't have yours. OK.
    I believed I directly answered your question in the first eight words of my last post to you.

    He is self-aware but he does not know he was created. How does that go, exactly?

    Nonsense. You said the serpent was the first to talk and listen to adam. Clearly, the serpent wasn't.

    You mean "I don't think that anyone provided such information"? OK. May be Adam invented the language? Or may be you think it was a miracle?

    It "is the conception and planning of an offence by an officer, and his procurement of its commission by one who would not have perpetrated it except for the trickery, persuasion or fraud of the office.

    Then the facts of the case.

    Two naive young people are placed in an enclosed area.

    God puts a Tree in the area whose fruit is "death" if eaten.

    God puts or "allows" a talking snake in the area, already aware that the creature will attempt to persuade the female to eat the fruit.

    God knows that the male is enamored of the female and will follow her lead.
    how big is the enclosure, where is the tree located...what details did God withhold from them? Did God give the consequences of disobedience?

    Doesn't matter. The serpent was the first entity that listened to the words of a human.
    boy that's an assumption based on nothing...how long were they there ?
