Hopeless Romantic:
quote:
I'm not Christian, so correct me if I'm wrong, but God DID ban us from good and evil as well as knowledge.  'Twas Man's disobedience that led to the fall of Eden.



Not quite right... recall the text of Genesis:


"The knowledge of good and evil"

Knowledge is qualified here as a peculiar kind of knowledge, not knowledge in general.  God was and is not an advocate of human ignorance.  Regardless of what should or shouldn't be banned, everyone justifies God in this regard, I suspect.  We just draw the lines in different places, but there are ideas we would all deem worthy of suppression (or if not, vigorous refutation).
