The fall or not

I wrote about this over 40 years ago when studying time and space in Milton's Paradise Lost.

There is no fall. That first disobedience opened their eyes. Till then they were like puppies, blind. The Scripture does not use the word 'fall' anyway. I note too that the creation in Job is red in tooth and claw just like the real thing.

That disobedience was a necessary part of creation. Perhaps it fills in the missing 'likeness' to God. (Genesis 5:1)
