I found it interesting how much of a role the snake had in the out come of Genesis. What do you think the snake represents? In my opinion it is sin and could maybe the first glimpse of the devil we see in the bible. Without the snake tempting Eve into eating the apple they would of stayed in the Garden of Eden. The snake can be seen as representing evil and how easily it can be to be over come by sin. So did God create evil or was evil already present in the world? If God is the creator of everything then he is the one responsible for the snake that tempted Eve and Adam into eating the forbidden fruit, so all along God knew that this would happen and they would be sent out of the Garden of Eden. God is responsible for the outcome of our sin.
