Evolution v Genesis metaphor shower thoughts 

Forbidden fruit seems a weird choice. Fruit is one of the longest things our ancestors ate. Wouldn’t forbidden meat be a better metaphor for (carnal) knowledge than fruit? Especially given our species unusual position as omnivores?

Though fruit might work if it is rotten and thus full of alcohol, rather than picked straight from a tree. Our species love of alcohol also strange. Rotten fruit would spoil Eden, also a better metaphor.
