Why is it said that forbidden fruit always tastes sweeter? Why is it so hard sometimes to do the right thing, even when we have the best intentions? Is there an solution, or are we just doomed to fail when we try to resist temptation?
What, if anything, can we learn from the story of a talking snake trying to trick people into eating forbidden fruit? Is it an outdated and irrelevant relic from a gullible past? We find instead that it sheds light on much of what goes on inside our heads and hearts as we also face questions of truth and reality.
