Satan gave man love. Was it worth the hate?

Adam thought so. He instantly and without argument or
hesitation ate of that knowledge when Eve offered love to Adam.

Without Satan causing Original Sin, mankind could no know of
love or hate as love and hate are subject to being good or evil.

Would you do as Adam did?

Was Satan right in opening our eyes to love and hate?

Should we venerate Satan more than Yahweh who tried to deny mankind love?

I've not seen an interpretation where the fruit of the tree represented love before. Where are you getting that from?

From my own personal interpretation of that myth, there's no actual choice to make. To my mind it's a story that we tell ourselves about what it is to be human and have a self-awareness, so it doesn't really make sense to me to put oneself in Adam or Eve's proverbial shoes.

Unless Satan is just a title given to a major demon, Satan never convinced Adam and Eve to eat the apple. Lucifer wasn't Satan at the time of Genesis, as he got to screw over Job later in the Bible. Thus, Satan couldn't be the snake.

And don't give me crap about meanings of names as plenty of people have names with a meaning. People named Mitsurugi aren't literally the sword, nor are people named Pyra literally fire.

There is no “should we”. Only “will you” and “will I”. I will do what I will and you will do what you will.

“Should we” he says, lol.

I worship the dragon you speak of as well as the supreme God. I worship the supreme God more however as the Satan angel in my religion is fulfilling a divine purpose as a loyal extension of the supreme God’s power.
