The Deadly Bite

Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.

I can't believe people believe the hype about Eve taking the first bite. Adam was the original spin doctor.

Adam did not in fact die the day he ate the forbidden fruit that Eve gave him...., now his eyes were open and he had shame and a conscience! Adam went to have alot of children and dying at the supposed ripe ol age at 130....

It did not say he died immediately....it was just the reason he died...which is true....

i personally didn't like this one for no reason in particular.....but it does work...is not flawed.
