How did chickenpox get its name?

There are many explanations offered for the origin of the name chickenpox:

  • Samuel Johnson suggested that the disease was "less dangerous", thus a "chicken" version of the pox;
  • the specks that appear looked as though the skin was pecked by chickens;
  • the disease was named after chick peas, from a supposed similarity in size of the seed to the lesions;
  • the term reflects a corruption of the Old English word giccin, which meant itching.

The Bible
Old Testament
Adam and Eve

What were Satan's four tactics in tempting Eve?

The story of Adam and Eve never mentions the post-Exilic Satan, instead having a serpent tempt Eve.

The serpent was more cunning than any other animal in the Garden. First, he called into question God's right to decide which fruit they could eat (Genesis 3:1): "Has God indeed said that you shall not eat from every tree in the garden?"

The serpent told Eve that she would not die from eating the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. This impugned dishonesty in the motives of God, who had, in Eve's words, said that they would die if they ate of the tree.

Most importantly, the serpent told Eve that by eating of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, she and Adam would be like the gods, knowing both good and evil. According to Genesis, this was undoubtedly true, as once Adam and Eve had eaten of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, they were like gods (Genesis 3:22: "And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us..."), but had also become aware of their mortality. This exposed God's hidden meaning and motives, showing that he did not want Adam and Eve to achieve their full potential, of knowing good and evil. Finally it created a self-awareness and a longing for knowledge.

Eve was tempted, and ate the fruit.


Genesis Ch. 3. Quote:- v4 And the serpent said unto the woman,(1)Ye shall not surely die:

v5 (2) For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

These are the only words (Tactics) which Satan spoke to Eve. Thought I will agree that what has been said could be close to the truth.
