The allegory of Adam and Eve being kicked out of Eden is this act, which means mankind turned against nature, thinking he could create a better reality-civilization. Even today, humanity still tries to improve and create an ideal existence that always seems to be beyond his grasp. This was, and still is, his Temptation. In Genesis Was Right, amateur historian Stephen Barr examines the characteristics of civilization and demonstrates how they have become so integral to civilization that any change - especially one that may prevent a downfall - has become nearly impossible. In Barrs critical glimpse into the history of our civilization, in thirteen chapters he scrutinizes the life processes of the universe, the life stages within our galaxy, and those of mankinds very civilization. The earths slow stages that we barely perceive are paralleled by our civilizations slow stages. We react to this in various ways that are the changing characteristics of our societies.With the onset of global warming and the shortage of petroleum, raw materials, and fresh water, Barrs comprehensive look at the history of our civilization will encourage others to learn from the mistakes of those who came before us and reexamine our current lifestyle, ultimately building a better future for our world.
