Thursday October 29, 2009 God creates Eve from Adam’s rib. Eve is a helper, but as the same time opposed to him. PARADOXICAL The whole story presents paradox. The relationship between man and himself. Because man is schizophrenic constitutionally. The woman against the man, the woman and her children—she is the mother of all life. A relationship which is her rationale for being. Yet it is these children that give her all the pain and trouble. The earth and Adam—he is of the earth. His name comes from the word for earth. He is made to work/combat against the earth as he labors in the field. The blame game between adam and eve is not exactly wrong. At the same time, there is truth to what they say—the serpent did tempt eve, and she did tempt adam. Who can the Serpent blame? It would have to be God. Who made Adam, eve, and the serpent each with the capacity of transcendence? Augustine struggled with where the evil in him could have come from be Main points: Recounts about the emergence of moral consciousness as a development from the material to consciousness—spirituality. We are talking about a transformation from down to up. It is also according to the story a transformation from up to down. God ensures that he can really never transcend It is a shift from inside to outside. They move from the garden to outside. A move from outside to inside, as well from a dependence on God to their own sense of self.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
