    Please allow me to be disagreeable this morning: Adam DID have a choice, as does every other human. Adam could have chosen not to eat the fruit (and ’twas not an apple). His disobedience to the divine command was not ordained. He could have turned away. He could have said no, but he chose to say yes. We who stumble through this world have a lot of choices to make, and we don’t always make the right ones. Hence, the story of Adam is my story…and yours…and the story of us all.

      I actually agree with everything you said–I guess I was a bit too ambiguous in this poem, but I was actually talking about Adam’s wife Eve. There weren’t any other women in the garden. I think quoting Hobbes probably added to the confusion because I was subverting his original assertion (he claims there is no ultimate justice, hence government is a necessary monstrosity) and appealing to divine justice instead. Thank you so much for your disagreement–it is an important distinction to make :D
