Probably everyone heard how Adam and Eve lost the Garden of Eden. Many theories have tried to explain the metaphor contained in the act of eating the forbidden apple that resulted in expelling us from paradise. Was it the discovery of agriculture, sexuality, consciousness or evolution?
I believe that the prohibited fruit must have been a drug (coffee or cocoa beans) which forced us to create the new way of communicating and originated the first language per se but nobody would say now days that drinking coffee is sinful -even if abusing it may produce bursts of energy that must be paid later on by calcium deficiency, sleeplessness, cramps and, osteoporosis at an elder age. Just as the views regarding our sexuality, times have changed and we are free to do unimaginable things considered taboo barely fifty years ago!
