    Don't bother.

    Most people here can't understand that if Eve didn't know the difference between Good and Evil she couldn't know that by eating from it she did wrong. As she had no idea what that concept was in the first place.

    She had no basis. She had no life experience that is needed to teach people right and wrong. Eve had no knowledge that her action my result in being punished by a good and loving god. The serpent told Eve the truth about what god told her. Again, she had no experience to judge, compare or deduct what action would be best.

    Adam told her to not eat from the tree or even touch the tree.

    She was not held accountable for eating the fruit. Adam was!

    It's a form of intimidation, "don't challenge gods word", and its also meant to stop from people exploring science (the truth) and discrediting anything from the bible.
