I had a thought today. I read the story of Adam and Eve today. And something occurred to me. The serpent talked. To Eve. With words. This led to a question: Could all the animals in Eden talk? If so, what would happen if we found the garden? would the animals there still talk? What would happen to the Garden if it was found in modern times? If not, why would only the serpent talk? **IMPORTANT NOTICE**This is assuming that the story did happen, the way the story goes. And in no way should this thread be used to debate any sort creationism v. evolution. Or anything of that nature. This is a pure just-for-fun what-if thread.
