I interpret the fall of man story in the Torah and in the old testament as in part, a lesson on what separates man from the rest of the animals.

Interestingly enough, the story seems to put it at the ability to develop and communicate moral frameworks or IOW, the knowledge of good and evil.

It's an interesting way to look at it in any case. Sometimes it's even elegant, as you pick it apart you realize that all the functionality that goes into that, language, the ability to see past our choices etc, could be argued as the things that make us human.

Anyway, just an aside. I like stories. =)

At one point, I put our parlor trick at the ability to negotiate, which is almost correct but not quite complete enough.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
