God creates Adam and Eve and all hell breaks loose - literally. God is unhappy because his creations aren't doing what is necessary to multiply. His favorite son, Lucifer, has an idea, but God doesn't take to it very well. Lucifer implements it anyway, which leads to the expulsion from the garden, and ultimately, to murder. The interesting question in this is: who is the good guy? Who is the bad guy? While traditional believers in a good God and a standard interpretation of Genesis can probably give an easy answer (because there is a lot left for interpretation, and people will tend to read into this what they want), it isn't really so easy. Questions of evil and good are explored, but not resolved. The battle between God and Lucifer begins. ( )
