  •  Adam and Eve (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    ramara, commonmass

    Is such a primitive and in some ways a silly story.  But the rabbis saw this story as teaching us that we are all descendants from Adam and Eve and therefore we are all brothers and sisters, and it behooves us to love each and every human being on this planet as our brother or sister, for every human being on this planet is our brother or sister.  This is the essence of my religious beliefs, or, as commonmass states, "our commitment to peace and social justice."  And I second his thanks for the diary.
