1 The Garden of Eden was not about feeding an apple to a man but how shame began. 2 Our attempt to explain why childbirth begets pain invoked God, sex and sin. 3 Sad way to begin. 4 When Cain struck down Abel (according to fable) he invented warfare. 5 We took it from there. 6 The Ark built by Noah ferried two protozoa, and then four and then eight. 7 Disease was First Mate. 8 The Flood begat Rainbow, a sign, so claimed Noah, of God's misgivings for culling the living. 9 The leftover rabble assembled at Babel to build a tall tower. 10 Nui ka huikau. 11 Covenants fell like rain on the grandsons of Cain. 12 God's strangest provision: male circumcision. 13 Sodom and Gomorrah lacked ten men of morals so The Lord burned them down. 14 At least no one drowned. 15 Abraham gripped his knife to cut short his son's life and flesh out God's design. 16 God said, "Never mind." 17 Abraham's Sarah and Jacob's Rachel -- barren. 18 Their mates took more women: more sons were given. 19 Was this really how man supposedly began? 20 Given what men now do, much of it rings true.
