Genesis 3: The Fall

Original sin was Eve eating the fruit from the tree that God told her not to eat.

The wily serpent tricked her into disobeying God. Once she ate the fruit, she felt shame. This is what happens when you eat fruit.

In essence, the serpent took away God's personal peep show of two naked humans.

An angel with a flaming sword made sure they could not return to the Garden of Eden. I'm not sure why the angel really needed a flaming sword but this is a fairy tale..

The whole purpose of Jesus in this story is to forgive any and all sins, including Original Sin.

The made up story of the Immaculate Conception then becomes necessary in the birth of Mary, the mother of God.
