Okay, if you guys insist on using Christian terms can you at least go back
and check the sources? "Original Sin" is a relatively new idea (compared
to the Torah). And if you look it up, the original "sin" was "eating of
the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil."

Hmmm,... sounds to me like *consciousness* is the only "sin" I have to
atone for.
