Sorry the apple came in following my image of Eve. My original work said 'eat of the tree' suggesting fruit. I did use the word seduce which was inappropriate although understandable from my cultural upbringing. It seems that Eve blamed the snake, and Adam blamed Eve neither admitting their sin which was still evident until the 'blood sacrifice' or 'scarlet thread' was obtained from the Garden of Eden by using the skin of an animal. This still did not completely cover the sin until Jesus took our sin away returning us to a sinfree state(?). The shame felt by Adam and Eve was the shame as the result of obtaining the knowledge of good and evil not the nudity.
I am a little unclear where Noah enters this story. He has another method of purifying the world although the resultant genetic pool would appear a problem
...btw thanks for helping me get a distinction in the future!
