Not for nothing do some know me as the Riddler! I present this post as a riddle. And no, I am not going to give you the answer. It’s for you to work out the somewhat tenuous connection between the picture and the title of this post. Only if you want to, of course. After all, this is a libertarian blog.

9 thoughts on “The Garden of Eden”
I reckon it must be either:
A) a word riddle on this being a bird of prey/pray.
B) more than anything, however, what would a bird of prey be doing in a pre-Fall Garden of Eden? Nothing was being punished yet to be eaten, surely?
Addendum: not sure of my theological grounds, here, but there would be no death in pre-Fall Garden of Eden, hence, there would be no carrion eaters, period.
That was my first thought when I looked at the picture. 🙂
It must be a vegetarian ancestor.
Mouse over the bird of prey … carry on.
I can’t mouse on an iPad.
Oh … well, if you mouse over the image, the name of the image—which is also the name of the artist—pops up. The artist’s name is Doepler.
The name of the artist is no help to me.
I’m thinking the picture represents ‘the promise of America’… ‘The Eden’ of Liberty.
Tim, Google is your friend. 🙂
When I look at the picture, I see everything functioning in natural order ; un- inhibited ; no restrictions ; functioning as it should in its natural state.
The eagle is circling for food, and their is nothing on offer on the ground, but there is nothing stopping the eagle from rising to greater heights to find it.
