I love the fact that someone just pointed out that, nothing changed before Adam partook of the fruit of knowledge. If you go by the patriarchal ideology of the bible, Adam had the power to not take of the fruit even when Eve gave it to him and told him what the serpent said.
Adam had the ability to say no, according to the scriptures, he even may have had a better understanding of commandments of God ( maybe not sure). He didn’t not do it, so putting the blame on women is just pointless, bc in the end he chose to sin as well.
I think I asked this once as child but the idea was rejected by an elder. I feel like rereading this scripture now.
