Gen 3:6

It's interesting that it says "desirable for gaining wisdom" -- as if part of the cause of the Fall was a search for wisdom.

Gen 3:22

"live forever" so eternal life at one time at least was as simple as eating from a certain tree in Eden? Seems like almost a. .. mythological ... statement, more mythological than our ideas about eternal life today

Gen 3:24

The man was driven from Eden -- it never says explicitly that the woman was (I guess this is the first instance where the woman's actions are implied by the man's actions). Was this implicit man-over-woman idea present before the Fall, or did the Fall have something to do with this as well?
