I was brought up Jehovah’s Witness. (That’s a fairly little-known non-Trinitarian branch of Christianity.) As such, I was taught about Christianity’s roots in Judaism, and therefore also taught about Judaism, though perhaps not very accurately.

I am now an atheist, but continue to be curious about religion and how it works and is manifest in people’s lives.

revised Would Adam and Chava have been permitted the tree of knowledge if they'd waited?
Tried to tidy grammar a bit. It's still a bit fiddly, what with the same pronoun referring many times to two different refferants in the same sentance. Further improvement could be made.

Capitalisation and grammar. I'm not sure what "sadeek" is supposed to mean, and Google is unhelpful.
