    That's an odd thing to say. Supposedly God "is" love and angels are closer to God than humans are. So why woud they be incapable of love?

    Satan IS capable of love. The triarchy of evil is: murdering your Father, getting your Mother pregnant, having intercourse with the child as it grows and tries to kill you. Satan is actually his son's brother, and because of his actions he KNOWS the child is trying to kill him and sleep with his wife.

    This is in the bible: eating from the tree of knowledge and the story of Cain and Abel (Cain murdered Adam "...and later she (Eve) gave birth to his (Cain's) Brother, Abel.")

    Abel hadn't been born yet. Re-read the passage: "Later, she gave birth to his Brother, Abel."

    ...and this happened because Satan loves his Mum. So Satan is capable of love. God loves his wife MORE than he loves his Mum.

    Maybe Love didn't exist before Adam and Eve got the tree of knowledge.

    It didn't. The tree of knowledge exists because God DOES NOTHING. It takes no part and has no place in society. Hence the evil that has flourished in the world.

    This is kind of the question Satan is trying to get people to rethink.

    Only if you think of him as a human.

    No, just using the biblical interpretation of a "motivated intelligence". If we give Satan human attributes, we cannot excuse God from having human attributes.

    As usual Carlin said it best; "results like this you'd expect from an officetemp with a bad attitude."..........

    The "Tree of Knowledge" should not be in our society?

    The tree of knowledge is everything? Do you mean "the tree of knowledge of good and evil? The morality tree?
    Even if you want to change the biblical text and propose that Adam and Eve ate "the fruit of the tree of knowledge", we're only talking about humans becoming smart. And we know that humans do not know everything.

    And God is not a tree. The tree is a symbolic representation of "branches of knowledge" and they grow very old. Thus the sages of old suspected that trees knew a lot from experience.
    Similar to Treebeard who is an Ent (a very old thing, in the Hobbit)

    "God" is the symbolic representation of "that which may become reality". Remember, no "craven images". God has no form, it is pure spirit. One might say "lots of energy and potential"........

    Just look at the painting and the variety of "enfolded implicate potential become unfolded in reality"

    Yes. I took a trip to a nature reserve about a week ago, Bolam Lake and fed plenty of swans there. One of my favourite birds.
