>>The Rabbis make an interesting remark on the phrase 'wih:yiytem
saying that this was exactly what the snake promised them: to be creators of
worlds.  See Gen. Rabbah 19:4, cited in Rashi, Gen. 3:5.

Yet the ssssssnake wassssss dessssssssssscccieving. They didn't become like
Elohim, just burdened with a conscience, frustrated at gardening and the
like.   :->
