"Makes sense to me. The only point i'm making over and over again is that we cannot Biblically confirm it the serpent was Satan in the Garden. That's all. It likely was. "

"Conclusion: The serpent was really there, but we don't know exactly what it was. It may have been Satan, it may not have been Satan. By questioning God, it was certainly on Satan's side. Conclude specific topic. Agreed? "
