Old Testament
Adam and Eve

If you read the story of Adam and Eve you will notice that it seems that God wants mankind to be ignorant is this a valid assumption?

The point is not of a valid assumption. The story tells us that

sure God wants us to be ignorant, the point is in the matters that

will lead to his destruction. According to the story if everything

had went as God had planned then the world today would have been

free from all evils. Hence, it is better to be ignorant and happy

rather than being knowlegable and in misery. Jonab's thought: If

God wants man to be ignorance and happy He would have created

robots. But it seems that God doesn't want man to be ignorance. He

wants man to know good and evils and then choose good over evils.

If we have a choice to enter the army to fight for our country then

we can join the army because be love our country. Contrary if we

have no choice but to join the army then we join the army only out

of obligation. God wants us to know good and evils so we can choose

Him not out of obligation. Jonab's continues: you say: "if

everything had went as God had planned then the world today would

have been free from all evils". Do you understand the implication

of your statement? The implication is things did not go as God

planned and God made a mistake with His creation.
