    If I had a time machine, I’d go back to cave days, and using the same materials they used, draw some dinosaurs, and UFOs in a couple of caves.

    I would also go back to the late 30s watch some Major League Human Cannonball matches.

    If I had a time machine, I’d go back to the garden of eden and run the snake through a meat grinder.

    Nab— As I remember my biblical stuff, it wasn’t till after the snake pulled off his con act that God said “On your belly shall you crawl etc.” But all the paintings of the incident show the snake in his current version. Do we have any concept of how the snake might have looked originally? Like a mastadon, maybe? Or is that part of the story metaphorical perhaps?

    Come to think of it, wasn’t the word serpent used?

    I remember a science fiction story about a teenager who winds up in the Stone Age.(Historically accurate… no dinosaurs).
    He follows the Cromagnon man he befriends into a cave that he knows archaeologists will discover in the future.
    He takes some of the caveman’s crude paint … and draws E=MC squared on a rock … with a picture of a jet!
    Pity the archaeologist who finds that …

    I always imagine that particular serpent to be a suave slim dragon (possibly wearing a jaunty hat and maybe a cravat and monocle), personality a bit like Terry Thomas, and he makes his entrance onto the screen by oozing around a tree saying ‘Hellooo therrrre!’

    Wasn’t the serpent really the devil in disguise?

    @ShadowBeast: No. The Devil’s a NT invention.

    Actually not. He’s been very busy since he was cast out of Heaven, both in the Old and New Testaments, and (perhaps even more so) today.

    He was not called the Devil in the OT, but Satan is mentioned several times, mostly in Job, but also once in the Psalms, once in 1st Chronicles, and a couple times in Zechariah.

    R Crumb depicts “The Serpent” as having legs and arms in his “Illustrated Genesis”. I found it interesting. Genesis seems to be mostly embellished gossip about a small group of people living around the eastern Mediterranean.

    Well said I agree but guess it was not in the plan
