Proof God has no free will?
One of the silliest fables in the bible is the whole story of the Fall. If God didn’t want Adam or Eve to eat the Fruit Of the Tree Of Knowledge (FOTOK), why did he put the tree in the garden of eden? God created the heaven and the earth, so he supposedly knew where all the continents and lands were. So why didn’t he put the tree in Bangkok, or Brisbane, or Brooklyn? In fact, why have a tree at all? Maybe god had an irrepressible urge to put it in the garden of eden, i.e.., he actually had no free will to choose where he put the damned tree. Or maybe Adam and Eve had a good case for entrapment (but, unfortunately, god had not yet created lawyers). This is no trivial point, since all misery and evil proceeds from that trees placement!
