No, there were actually two trees, the tree of life which granted everlasting life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil(which they ate from) that gave them an innate knowledge of good and evil, or as the Bible put it, the knowledge of god. They were kicked from the garden because god was afraid that man would then eat from the tree of life and become an everlasting god himself.

No matter how much you want it to be true, the Bible and the Koran are a very poor source for ethics.
You've never read the Qur'an and you don't know the first thing about evolutionary biology.

Educated guess based on his prior posts. I'm willing to bet a significant amount of money that I'm correct with both of my assumptions.

The average person, no matter where they stand on this issue, is generally grossly underinformed or misinformed. This includes you.

Old thread, but I see no issue with science explaining the mechanism a deity created.
