I was thinking about history lately when I came up with a rather peculiar realization. There are a few correlations between the Garden of Eden creation story and the agricultural revolution. Firstly, the Eden story takes place at the same time that Young Earth creationists claim the world began, which is what most scientists recognize as the agricultural revolution. Secondly, the emphasis on agriculture (the garden) and naming/gaining dominion over animals, which was the agricultural revolution was all about. (Not to mention the "forbidden fruit", likely some sort of poisonous fruit.) Third, the role of a snake as a villain. Snakes were one of the animals that remained antagonistic and uncontrollable to humans, as well as being deceitful and deadly. Fourth, "the woman fucks it all up". The Agricultural revolution was when women started getting the shaft in human society, relegated to domestic chores as opposed to the leadership-like role they held during mankind's hunter-gatherer nomad days. Lastly, the exile from the garden. Humans often left their homes to form new villages. (This is a bit of a weaker correlation, but still.) Any thoughts?
