Has any thought been given to which language god spoke to Adam and Eve?

    Everybody knows Adam and Eve spoke English. How else could they read the Bible?

    I'm pretty sure there wouldnt be a perfect time for this world to occur in a singularity unless he planted the seed of good and evil (middle earth) from the foundations of eternity, always knowing time would be split into before and after, thus creating fate.

    Fundamentalism in these latter denomination is at odds with their theology, however and is just a product of people being ignorant. You will always get some of that, just as people don't know the law properly, get wrong ideas about medicine and so on.

    Unfortunately they still make up the largest protestant denomination in the US. More unfortunately, they vote and even teach in the public school system.

    And now you have - smilies notwithstanding.
    Knowledge is not the apple. That tree could just as well have been a persimmon or plum - though I'd imagine olive for their longevity and spiritual significance. It's the venerated tree at the center of the sacred grove that is imbued with magical properties. It was "the tree of the knowledge of good and evil", which is morality, not mundane lore. They were quite welcome to know all about healing herbs and the movement of celestial bodies, and they obviously knew about obedience and punishment, or there wouldn't have been any point in giving them orders. But they had no ideas about shame (sexuality; nakedness) or sin (moral agency; corruption). They had been happy and innocent, like the other animals,
    but that fruit of moral awakening changed the dynamics in the garden:
    22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
    Now, mankind was a threat to the power of the gods.

    So I realise. Hence the crucial importance of keeping ID out of school science lessons. Tell me, are they still trying this, or have they given up now?

    Whatever their innate language would be. That is, before the latter had its specific, inheritable verbal content stripped away. Leaving only an abstract communicative template or system dependent upon variable acquistions from local social environments to plug into its now empty placeholders. Arguably applying even outside myth-history narratives, though probably pertaining to an earlier ancestral species rather than the earliest members of modern humans.

    Minus transhuman augmentations, we seem confined to a simple, lengthwise or time unfolding "language". So selection-wise, it is unlikely that gods would install their own communicative process into the sapient individuals of their simulated domains. For instance, a future archailect might indeed be departmentalized into a pantheon of sub-managing "DID-like" agents intermittently or regulary interacting with each other as the equivalent of a family of deities. But the information patterns of the archailect's own communicative system would surely be too complex and unwieldy for the created residents of its modeling "games".

    Rhyming?

    Was god's first question "How's your trouble an' strife?"

    So they could hear the sound of Bow Bell's in Eden?
