It seems obvious we're on different pages now. Funny, we were on the same page before and I'm sure I did nothing to change the plot.

Let me try one last time.

Do you believe the ancients were sun addled bumpkins who spoke nonsensical twaddle? If your translations could be updated to sound like modern English would everyone look askance at the speaker? Do you believe they were always talking about religion and their own superstitions and/ or making references to them? An answer to any of these three questions would suffice.

What "adjective" exists in the "tree of understanding knowledge" other than that the last two words might be considered an adjective phrase?

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
