HH: It is not necessary to arrive at this conclusion from the Genesis 
story. The reason Adam knew evil was that he was now a victim of it by 
succumbing to the temptation to do evil. He knew by experience what it 
was to rebel against God and do wrong. He knew guilt and would know 
punishment. Yes, he knew something he did not know before, but it was 
not to his advantage to do so, really.
