LOL .. So there was this. :) Hey, I'm with him for once.
He misses some things about these stories that I feel like he should know. That's why I eventually want to do a summary of the Bible. Having a background in Jung and Campbell myself and apparently having more background in the Bible, I can give a more concise description. He's not wrong, but his explanation is too complex.
The Tree of "Knowledge of Good and Evil" isn't exactly the correct name. Knowledge is more like "lived experience" or "skill" .. one might best say "existential understanding" of "good and evil." But it's also not "good and evil." The actual word used there is the same word twice - blessing and cursing are the same word, we know which the text means only based on context. Animals have a non-judgmental view of the world that we shared, but saying "it would be better to be a god" (as the snake convinced Eve of) is making a judgement of superiority and inferiority. Judgements cut both ways - it turns us against each other, and even against ourselves. This self-injury is the nature of sin - and the smallest amount of internal conflict means some small part of us wants to kill another part -- so then as a WHOLE, we "shall surely die."
They covered their nakedness because they didn't want to be judged - treated as an object. Same reason we do.

It occurs to me this is a test of 2 things 1- the probability you'll believe in social vs physical reality and the kinds of arguments you've been exposed to.
Tim's video - he can't even answer the questions:
I really don't think the two of them should ever work again.
They recognize the virtue of America .. either that or they're all white supremacists, I haven't decided yet. ;)
"Don't be evil" always meant YOU don't be what THEY think is evil.
Well that's watching how the sausage is made.
Ooooh, I bet that burns.
They must be white nationalists. ;)
While not all misogynists are racist .. most women who regularly use the term misogyny are misandrists.
Also, I thought y'all believed everyone was a racist?
